Kellie Pickler Booked for ‘Celebrity Family Feud’ Season 2
Country music fans will see a familiar face during Season 2 of Celebrity Family Feud: Kellie Pickler. The singer has been booked for the game show's upcoming season.
ABC confirms (via UPI.com) that Pickler, Paula Deen and Lance Bass are among the contestants who will appear on the show. Additional celebrities who will compete with their families include 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.
"In each episode of Celebrity Family Feud, celebrity families, and their immediate family members or their extended TV families, will compete against each other to win money for charity. Each team will be made up of a celebrity captain, with four relatives or friends playing along," a press release explains. "The winning celebrity team will be given a chance to win up to $25,000 to donate to a charity of their choice."
Celebrity Family Feud Season 2, which will include 10 episodes, is scheduled to begin on June 26. The TV game show will be part of ABC's Sunday Fun & Games Night programming, which will also feature Match Game and $100,000 Pyramid.
Pickler, of course, is no stranger to TV: Since rising to fame during Season 5 of American Idol, the artist has competed on (and won) Dancing With the Stars and now has her own reality show, I Love Kellie Pickler, on CMT. In October, Pickler will be inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame.
