Nancy O'Dell Takes The ALS Awareness Ice Bucket Challenge!


That looks cold!

Having lost her mother to the disease, ALS awareness is an issue close to Entertainment Tonight host Nancy O'Dell's heart. So when The Insider's Kevin Frazier challenged her to go under the ice bucket to benefit ALS research, Nancy and many more from our ET family gladly accepted the call. (Plus, it was a great way to cool off under the hot LA sun!)

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has quickly gone viral, with countless videos of people dumping ice buckets on their heads, including  many A-listers, Adam Levine and Justin Timberlake, all in the name of ALS awareness and research.

After taking the challenge, Nancy challenged some of her own friends, including Oprah, Jamie Foxx, the CBS This Morning News Team, the LA Dodgers, and Garth Brooks!
