Kimberly Bailey On Food Network’s Christmas Cookie Challenge
It’s almost Christmas, and along with the excitement, our beloved Food Network competition show, Christmas Cookie Challenge, is back for its sixth installment.
Just like the previous season, this year, five bakers competed in each episode to show off their holiday cookie-making skills to win that $10,000 grand prize. And judging them was lead judge Ree Drummond, joined by a rotating panel of judges Kimberly Bailey, James Briscione, Damiano Carrara, Dan Langan, Jamika Pessoa, Jordan Pilarski, Aarti Sequeira, and Joy Wilson.
Among them, Food Network fans might recognize Dan Langan as a finalist in Season 2 of the Spring Baking Championship, and James Briscione is a four-time Food Network champion.
Likewise, Kimberly is known for her time on Home & Family, and Christmas Cookie Challenge 2017. We might as well say that she’s a returning judge on the show.

Kimberly Bailey Cancer
It was 2008 when Kimberly felt a lump in her breast. But it didn’t really alarm her because she’s had a history of cysts. However, on a trip back to NYC, she went to her OBGYN, and it was there she was diagnosed with a benign tumor.
After months, she then went to a doctor again and after multiple tests, they also said that it was a benign tumor. But since it was growing, she opted to have an excisional biopsy to have the entire tumor removed. Unfortunately, they found out that the tumor was malignant.
The baker was also pregnant at the time. So, she made plans with her doctors to deliver Bailey a little early so that she could start chemo as fast as possible.
Did you know: Kimberly’s mentor, Susan Carberry, who asked her to be on her (winning) team on the Ultimate Cake Off when she was diagnosed with cancer, suffered from cancer herself in October 2022.
