The deal they have is that Leno asks her to eat something weird, as Chenoweth is a notoriously picky eater. If she does it, Leno donates money to a charity of her choice. The first time he offered up $500 if she would eat sea urchin. Next he doubled his offer if she would eat her own poop. Of course, she turned down that offer.
This time, he offered up something that kind of looked like the "dish" she turned down. Now this is blood pudding," Leno told her. "That’s pork, beef, blood and oats. You like oats. And this is haggis, which is animal fat, lamb’s liver and beef.”
Chenoweth visibly struggled with both dishes, coughing over the haggis, gagging over the blood pudding, and nearly throwing up both of them after a single bite.
“That was disgusting," she declared. But for her success, Leno donated $3,000 to breast cancer research in honor of Chenoweth's mother, who is a survivor.
After eating those dishes, Chenoweth checked that she hadn't lost her singing voice, and she sounded great. She'll be performing a one-night-only concert in Las Vegas to ring in 2014. Tickets are available now.
