How did these lucky attendees get invited to Ree Drummond’s house?

Drummond is a popular star on Food Network and host of The Pioneer Woman. Fans adore her as she is a very down-to-earth individual that seems like the nicest person in real life. Some of her followers have been able to meet her at book signings. Drummond just released a new cookbook called Super Easy and has been making appearances at book stores across the country.

While visiting a Pawhuska, Oklahoma book store, Drummond said she met a “nice young couple” that she invited to her Thanksgiving dinner. Getting an invite from the celebrity chef would make any fan go crazy, especially on a holiday that is all about good.

“I had a cookbook signing in Pawhuska yesterday, and these were the final two attendees in line! Such a nice young couple, and we had such an immediate connection…so I invited them to Thanksgiving at our house this week!” Drummond posted on Instagram.

However, fans quickly realized that Drummond was only joking as the couple pictured with her was her daughter Alex and her husband Mauricio Scott.

“I’m still waiting for their response,” she added. “Sure hope they say yes! And I hope they like to do dishes! Also, Ladd might need them to help him work cattle. So fun to meet new friends! Okay, bye.”

“They look dodgy too me. Hide the jewelry and don’t use the family silver. Just sayin’,” a fan joked.

“Gee, that female attendee could be your doppelgänger,” a follower added.

“You are so funny and I love your kids want to spend time with you… happy thanksgiving,” an Instagram user mentioned.
