Kellie Pickler Opens Up About Her Hysterical Mistake On ‘Family Feud’

ABC Television Network YouTube Channel

While Kellie Pickler is first and foremost known for her beautiful voice, the second thing she’s recognized for is her sense of humor. She’s been making people laugh with her fun-loving personality since her American Idol days, which is why she was the perfect candidate to become one of country’s first reality television stars. 

Pickler’s sense of humor and goofy antics are the focus of the CMT television series I Love Kellie Pickler. The show was such a hit with fans that it’s been renewed for a second season, which is sure to be full of good laughs.

Although the new season of the show hasn’t aired yet, Pickler hasn’t been any stranger to television lately. Along with her husband, sister, brother-in-law, and an I Love Kellie Pickler cast member, Pickler appeared on an episode of Celebrity Family Feud, where she competed against former NYSNC member Lance Bass and his team. The two teams were competing for prize money to donate to the charity of their choice. 

As the team captain, Pickler was the first one out of the gate to answer a question for her team. Standing up at the front with Bass and host Steve Harvey, Pickler was prepared to answer the question and slammed her hand down to hit the button…but she missed.

The hysterical moment has since gone viral, and Pickler couldn’t help but comment about it during a recent interview. She said said that prior to the show, she had actually practiced hitting the button:

“We have always been fans of the show. 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?”

Despite Pickler’s mistake, her team went on to win against Bass, and they took home $25,000 for the USO.
