Kellie Pickler Wins Over Audience on ‘Celebrity Family Feud’
Kellie Pickler is no stranger to television, as the country singer has won over viewers with her own reality show, I Love Kellie Pickler, each week on CMT. The singer has added another television series to her resume, as she recently appeared on Celebrity Family Feud, where she battled former 'N Sync member Lance Bass and his family.
While the competition was fierce between the Bass Family vs. Team Kellie, Pickler charmed her way into the audience's hearts when she mistakenly missed the buzzer on the first question. In an interview with Rare Country, Pickler explains her error.
“We have always been fans of the show,” Pickler says. “We were all backstage wondering which one of us would put our foot in our mouths first. We just didn't want to say anything stupid. It's so much easier playing at home. I mean, I practiced hitting that buzzer through dress rehearsal, and could you believe that I still missed it during the actual taping?”
Pickler's team includes husband Kyle Jacobs, sister Courtney Pickler Howard, brother-in-law Bradley Howard and Caroline Hobby, a cast member from I Love Kellie Pickler.
“Growing up I was always watching Family Feud with my granny,” she adds. “If she was alive today, she would have absolutely loved seeing me up there.”
Pickler joins a long list of celebrities for this season of Celebrity Family Feud. The cast includes the Band Perry, Sara Evans, Paula Deen, Lance Bass, Melissa Joan Hart, Sugar Ray Leonard, NeNe Leakes, Laila Ali, Alana Stewart, Paul Sorvino, Snoop Dogg, Ernie Hudson, Alfonso Ribeiro, Garrett Morris, Carson Kressley and Dave Foley.
