Bravo to Nailed It (Netflix), the baking reality competition show unlike any you’ve ever seen before.
On paper, it sounds familiar: amateur bakers vie for a hefty cash prize by recreating desserts and cakes. Here’s the thing, the amateurs are really, really baaad, and their floury concoctions are just as awful.
The contestants may love baking but lack the skills to back it up, making pastries that sometimes look like industrial accidents. You aren’t sure whether it’s safe to eat them or puke on them.
Then again, that’s the whole point of the show — featuring cheeky comedienne Nicole Byer and chocolatier Jacques Torres as the resident judges — the more atrocious the cakes are, the more entertaining the show is.
Kidding aside, you’ll probably learn more about baking from watching their negative demonstrations.
