What did Ree Drummond say about Chef Eddie Jackson?

Drummond and Jackson teamed up as co-hosts on Christmas Cookie Challenge on the Food Network. Viewers of the show are treated with lovely visuals of the holidays and get everyone in the spirit of family and delicious baking. As the show continues to air, Drummond dedicated a post to her co-host and praised him.

“Ree & Eddie, Eddie & Ree—together again tonight on Christmas Cookie Challenge!” Drummond posted on Instagram. “I don’t know why I just referred to myself in the third person, but oh well. We have such a blast filming this fun show, Eddie is absolutely the GHOAT (greatest host of all time), and I’m lucky he lets me tag along.”

The celebrity chef then made a reference to Animal House recalling a scene where “Flounder approaches the frat members and says, ‘Hi guys!! You guys playing cards??’ and they just kind of look at him like someone whose name is Flounder?”

Drummond then added, “That’s how I feel tryna host next to Eddie. But he’s a lot nicer than those frat boys, even when I talk his ear off—much like I’m doing to you now. Hope you enjoy Christmas Cookie Challenge.”

The Pioneer Woman star added, “Christmas Cookie Challenge is my jam, @chefeddiejackson is the greatest co-host of all time, and I swear we have the coolest contestants! And there are just good holiday vibes everywhere you turn.”
