An unwelcome furry friend had Ree Drummond and her crew jumping and shrieking as it ran through her kitchen in the middle of shooting her cooking show.


"The Pioneer Woman" Ree Drummond had an unexpected guest appear while filming an episode of the cooking show. A rat made its way across the kitchen floor behind the Food Network Star.

While not noticing the creature's movements, Drummond was screeching and jumping around her cooking space once informed by her crew. She uploaded a video on Instagram to share the behind the scenes footage.

With a portion of the kitchen undergoing renovation and a leak in the sink as the possible window of entrance for the rat, the long-tailed rodent most likely thought himself welcome on the inviting set of Drummond's show.

This, however, was not the case. The cooking show star called in the help of her crew, who were brave at first and hightailed it once, coming face to face with the rat. Drummond shared the ordeal with the caption:

"The (very) unwelcome visitor interrupted shooting, and the screams (not just mine—right, Mauricio?) were plentiful."



The infamous "The Pioneer Woman" kitchen that the rat so badly wanted to see for himself first started as the home base for Drummond, where she cooked up a storm for her husband Ladd and their four children.

When her rancher husband took the kids out for the day to give the mom some time for herself, "The Pioneer Woman" was launched but as a blog. It all snowballed from there, with Ladd supporting his industrious wife all the way.



With her children featuring behind the scenes shots, it is clear that Drummond's family is a priority. The 52-year-old's family is expanding with her daughter Alex tying the knot with her fiancé Mauricio who is also seen in the video.

Drummond recently shared that two will be heading down the aisle on May 1, 2021, and have decided to get married on the family ranch in Pawhuska, Oklahoma. Drummond shared about their choice of location, saying:

"It's where Alex grew up, and it just feels like the right place."



The Drummond household has also recently opened their hearts and home to foster a teenage boy. The home cook took to Instagram to share how proud she was of her 18-year-old foster son, Jamar.

Jamar has been signed to play football at the University of Central Oklahoma in the fall semester of 2021, and his foster family is bursting at the seems they are so proud of him.


Jamar is the fifth child in the Drummond house. Alex, Paige, Bryce, and Todd are his siblings. With Alex getting married and Jamar off to play football, 2021 is a big year for the ranch family.

The cooking show host has a full house with some uninvited guests keeping her on her toes. While the rat doesn't make for the most pleasant cooking experience, it sure does make for good entertainment.
