MANILA -- Comedian-host Vhong Navarro accepted the ALS ice bucket challenge after he was nominated live by co-host Billy Crawford on Monday's episode of "It's Showtime."

Navarro performed the stunt at the "It's Showtime" studio later Monday, although the video was shown during the noontime show on Tuesday.

"Nandito na po ako ngayon, wala po akong ligtas. Ina-accept ko ang challenge ni kuys Billy at magdo-donate din po ako," Navarro said in the video at the start of the challenge.

After he was drenched in ice water, Navarro nominated actor John Lloyd Cruz, PBA star Arwind Santos and action star Robin Padilla to follow suit.

Padilla, however, already did the stunt with wife Mariel Rodriguez.

The ice bucket challenge is a global campaign to raise funds and awareness for people with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
