Carrie Underwood: Not That Kind of Daredevil

She Says No to Actor-Comedian Nick Offerman’s Dare

Carrie Underwood was on NBC’s Today on Wednesday (Jan. 18), catching up with everyone about her Grammy nominations, her 2016 tour and her love of The Walking Dead.

So naturally, actor-comedian Nick Offerman, the day’s co-host of sorts, asked her to take her clothes off. If Offerman’s name is unfamiliar to you, he’s known for his role as Ron Swanson on the hit sitcom Parks and Recreation.

Leading up to that awkward conversation, however, Underwood was just telling the story of her recent skydiving experience in Sydney, Australia.

The hosts wanted to know if she was a little bit of a daredevil and if this skydiving adventure was just one of many.

“I tend to play it safe, but every once I have to do something. Just occasionally. Just something that’s a little out of character,” Underwood said.

She said that after it happened, she kept saying, “I can’t believe we did that.”

And she added that if she ever does anything like that again, it will happen on a whim.

So Offerman quipped, “What if we all get naked right now?”

Underwood’s response? “You’re on your own there.”

It was such a light-hearted-but-dead-serious way to shoot Offerman down, it just made Underwood look like the classiest one in the room. As usual.
