A Must-Try Holiday Dessert + Rach & John Answer Your Qs
In honor of our 13th season, we're turning the number 13 into a lucky one by giving thirteen of our viewers incredible surprises all season long!
When we got a letter from Keith in Jacksonville, we knew his wife, Lomalouise, would be the perfect No. 1! She's a HUGE Rachael fan and a hard-working registered nurse who is always caring for everyone else.
"This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for her to meet the one and only celebrity she looks up to and admires," Keith told us. Awww!
First, our resident beauty whiz Gretta Monahan found the couple in Times Square. (Lomalouise knew *exactly* who our glamorous Gretta was, of course!) Then, she guided them to look up at a big screen where, with the help of Big Sign Message, Rach gave her fan a special hello.
(You have to see her reaction to seeing Rach in the video above!)
Before long, Lomalouise was whisked away to Alibi Salon, where Gretta helped give our lucky viewer an amazing makeover. Keith couldn’t get over his wife's new look, saying, "You always look great, but... dangggg!"
We hear ya, Keith!
Then, the chocolate-loving couple got to hang with the one and only Jacques Torres and whip up some truffles with the master. Of course, they got to sample them — who could resist?
When they arrived at the studio, they definitely weren't expecting even more surprises, but Rach insisted on updating Lomalouise's existing set of Rachael Ray cookware. Then, she followed that up with a REALLY big surprise: an all-expenses paid, 6-day trip to Italy! Watch their reaction in the video below:
"This is the coolest thing I've ever gifted anybody," Rach gushed, before telling them about the incredible Tuscan villa they'd be staying in thanks to Cuvée. (Spoiler alert: there's an infinity pool, 5-bedroom suites, a pizza oven and a farm-to-table pizza-making class). WOW!
Let's just say, it got emotional in the best kind of way!
