By Bob Hallmark - bio | email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas woman competing in the Texas State Fair gets an unexpected judge for her event.

Christina Gilbert of Lindale was competing in the baked brownie division at the Texas State Fair when two unexpected judges arrived: Oprah Winfrey and Gail King.

Gilbert got to have a brief one on one conversation with Oprah and says it was a moment she'll be telling people about for a long time.

Gilbert placed in her division, getting a $500 gift certificate for her effort.

On Monday, we will air Oprah's episode from the Texas State Fair. That will be at 4 o'clock right here on KLTV 7.
