Ree Drummond Is Going To Be The Lead Judge On An All-New Food Network Christmas Series


What isn’t Ree Drummond up to these days?? From cookbooks to giving tours of her Oklahoma lodge to creating bedding lines and home goods for Walmart, she’s keeping herself busy 24/7. According to Food Network, The Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond is set to be the lead judge on an all-new seasonal series called “Christmas Cookie Challenge,” and it is set to air on November 6.

In the series, host Eddie Jackson challenges talented cookie makers from across the United States on their holiday cookie baking and decorating skills. Ree Drummond will be the lead judge, and she’ll have a rotating team of guest judges on her panel, including Kimberly Bailey, James Briscione, Damiano Carrara, Dan Langan, Jamika Pessoa, Jordan Pilarski, Aarti Sequeira, and Joy Wilson.

We assume Ree and the rest of the judges will be noting the overall taste and design of the cookies– and there might even be some fun twists and turns in the competition to keep things interesting. Whoever wins the competition will arguably have the best Christmas of all time when they get to take home $10,000, plus the pride of a job well done, of course.

The show airs on Food Network on Monday, November 6 at 10/9c.
