Hot Bench is adding two new judges to its panel for its ninth season. Judge Yodit Tewolde and Judge Rachel Juarez are joining Judge Michael Corriero on the panel starting October 31st. The new arrivals are replacing Patricia DiMango and Tanya Acker, who both left to appear on the new Amazon Freevee series Tribunal. Both shows come from Judge Judy Sheindlin.
David Theodosopoulos, an executive producer for Hot Bench, said the following about the new arrivals, per Deadline:
“Judges Yodit Tewolde and Rachel Juarez bring an exciting new energy and a fresh, new dynamic to our series that viewers know and love. Their diverse backgrounds and experiences are a beautiful complement to Michael, and I’m thrilled to welcome these strong, accomplished women to the bench.”
Hot Bench is a #1 syndicated show with an average of two million viewers tuning in to each episode. In each installment, a trio of judges decides on real small claim cases from around the country.
