It’s no secret that Walker has been a success, what with the record-breaking it did with the premiere’s ratings. Yet another accolade has been dropped under the show’s belt, as Jared Padalecki has won the January 2021 SpoilerTV Performer of the Month Award for his role as Cordell Walker!
In this reboot of Walker, Texas Ranger, Padalecki plays widower Cordell Walker who has just returned from an undercover assignment, trying to put the pieces of his life back together in the wake of how life has changed after he left following his wife’s death — as well as navigating his Ranger duties with new partner Micki Ramirez.
Up against the Supernatural alum turned cowboy included the talents of Elizabeth Olsen (WandaVision), Hailee Steinfeld (Emily Dickinson Dickinson), Hunter Schafer (Euphoria), and Lucas Till (MacGyver). Though the competition was stiff, Padalecki prevailed, earning him the first Reader Choice SpoilerTV win of the 2021 year.
