Just remember: this woman authored a cookbook. Reba McEntire recently entered a “Hillbilly Chili Cook-off” – and a woman who professes to know how to cook (and wrote a book that would seem to indicate as much) should have a leg up in something like this. On top of that, she had an ace in the hole: boyfriend Rex Linn was one of the judges. However, if you bet on Reba to take top prize in the competition, you’re going home broke.
In fact, Reba came in dead last. She walked away with a booby prize trophy: a chili pepper being flushed down a toilet. To add insult to injury, fellow country star Terri Clark also entered – and finished in second place.
