Clarkson was not alone in her struggle to eat the spicy pepper; another celebrity challenged was Jimmy Kimmel. The late-night host got in on the action and ate an impressive three peppers.

Even Cohen from Watch What Happens Live braved the heat and challenged the First Lady, Melania Trump, to eat the hot pepper.
