I don't like to bake so I watch it purely for entertainment. When I introduced it to my sister she was laughing so hard she was crying. She went home and showed it to her husband. My daughter and I started watching it about the same time unbeknownst to each other. We both were going to recommend it.
Sometimes you just watch stunned. I don't bake or cook much but I know I wouldn't make some of the mistakes they make. Not that I think I could do a good job but then I'm not on TV trying to! It is for $10,000 so maybe I would for that.
It cracks me up how the judges try to be encouraging but sometimes they can't help themselves and have to laugh anyhow.
I think I was laughing so hard during Princess Cake because Zak was laughing so hard. Nicole is priceless and the head Judge, Jacques, is also in on the fun. The guest judges have been fantastic. Here they are at the top of their profession and other than wiping away tears of laughter actually give critiques on the taste of the offering.
Okay, I'm in.

..and to think, they award $10,000 to the best of the worst! I watch the cake shows on the FoodTV channel and then this. The stark contrast between the two.
I think it's awesome that they give them $10,000. That's a pretty good prize just for putting yourself out there in this crazy manner! I hate to bake, and I'm pretty sure I'd be disastrous, but 10k makes it tempting to apply for the show.
I saw a clip somewhere today of the Queer Eye guys doing a short Nailed It competition where they made and decorated cupcakes of each other. It was pretty funny. I don't know if it was actually part of the new Nailed It season or just a promo thing they filmed, but it was fun.

But if that's not possible, gimme a Margarita...shaken, not stirred...and hold the salt, please.
It is a bit silly. I can't believe how bad these folks are. I am watching the one were there are using pizza dough to make doughnuts. Baking is chemistry so you have to measure stuff to make sure it works correctly, but common sense is very useful also.
