LeBron James and Channing Tatum stopped by Ellen’s show on Tuesday night to a complete a few ridiculous dares in order to raise money for LeBron’s new I Promise elementary school in his hometown of Akron, Ohio.
Together, the two superstars completed five dares to raise a total of $100,000 gifted by Walmart. To kick things off, the Lakers player took a shot of tequila with no hands, followed by Tatum performing his sexiest crawl for the audience. Next, Ellen had James blindfolded to lick a mysterious item that ended up being … a kiwi.
“The first thing that came to mind, I thought it was an ass, and I was like ‘Ellen wouldn’t do that to me,’ so I said kiwi,” James said, explaining how he guessed correctly.
“Also, Channing would have to be standing on the table for you to lick his ass,” Ellen replied.
Finally, to finish off the series of dares, LeBron scarfed down some hot sauce-drenched ice cream and Channing was forced to lick peanut butter off of his own nose.
The money is going toward LeBron’s school that opened in July. He initially announced his plans to open the school in 2017, but the program is the result of years of work from the LeBron James Family Foundation.
The I Promise School serves 240 third and fourth graders this year, with plans to expand to other grades in the future. They receive free tuition, uniforms, food, bicycles, and helmets. Students of the school are also promised free tuition to the University of Akron beginning in 2021.
His school is so incredible that some people have petitioned for LeBron to replace Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education.
