Every year Dierks Bentley takes part in his own Polar Bear Plunge. This year he was in Florida and the lake he planned to jump in was filled with alligators. Being forced to improvise, Dierks sat in a plastic pool while his band poured cold water and bags of ice over his head.

Last year, Dierks was also in Florida. He teamed up with Capitol One to raise money for charity, jumping in Orlando's Lake Eola

Dierks believes the polar plunge brings him good luck in the New Year. I believe it just brings hypothermia, but to each his own.
