Kristin Chenoweth was quite the trooper on Wednesday's Tonight Show With Jay Leno when she accepted a challenge that nearly had her puking on national television.
All in the name of charity, the Wicked star agreed to eat Scottish dishes, blood pudding and haggis, in exchange for Leno donating $1,500 to her breast cancer charity. The late-night host revealed that these cuisines were his mother's favorite, but Chenoweth, 45, had a different reaction to the food.
"This is blood pudding. That's pork, beef, blood and oats. You like oats," Leno, 63, explained. "And this is haggis. Which is animal fat, lamb's liver and beef."
The petite actress nearly lost her lunch during the challenge, but got the host to double his donation in the process.
