Leave it to the food pros to add some special flavor to their versions of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, which has been sweeping the nation on social media the last few weeks.

Jamie Oliver did his with a Flashdance theme, Mario Batali got iced while standing in a tranquil lake and Anthony Bourdain cursed even before someone threw water on his head and then fell fully dressed into a pool!

Check out their icy endeavors, as well as other big names, like Luke Bryan and Ben Affleck, who endured the big chill for a good cause that has, so far, raised $23 million!

What is the purpose of this ice bucket challenge besides bringing awareness to ALS? Does the ice represent something? I think it’s a fun challenge I just want to know what the ice is suppose to represent. Thx!

Too bad there can’t be stories about all the kill shelters for all the innocent dogs being put down because people won’t spay/neuter the pets! This magazine is getting so vapid – enough already with the ice bucket challenge – we get it!

I believe it’s just so you will notice the person pouring ice on their head and wonder why they are doing it . . I think it’s just to bring awareness to the disease.
