'Nailed It! Double Trouble': Air time, live stream, teaser and all about Netflix's spin-off on Emmy-nominated baking series
It's that time of the year again where Netflix brings back its Emmy-nominated baking series 'Nailed It!' After a super successful fourth installment of the series that aired last year in April, a new spin-off season called 'Nailed It! Double Trouble' is gearing up for its premiere. But there's a twist, more about that in a bit though. From chocolate hatching eggs to 90s inspired ice cream cakes and Moby Dick's pop-up book cake, amateur bakers on the previous season had the toughest challenges to fulfill and the level of difficulty on the new season is about to be notches higher.
"From best buds to brothers and sisters, these bakers are twice as bad," Netflix's summary for the new season reads. "This season, we go far and wide for inspiration, ranging from delicious baked treats inspired by Greek mythology to sugary desserts from dear old Grandma," reveals the brief about the challenges of this season that will see home bakers pairing up to take a shot at recreating edible masterpieces for a $10,000 prize.
'Nailed It! Double Trouble' will premiere on March 26, 2021, and like most Netflix shows, all six episodes of the show will be available to stream on the same day.
Baking is not for everyone and this show proves exactly that. The focus of it is chronicling inexperienced home bakers who make attempts to create edible art with a timer on. Over the years, the show has seen a number of catastrophic creations from bakers which look nothing like the specimen that they're asked to emulate but it's totally worth it in the end as everyone wins! Someone goes home with $10,000 and the others with a lot of laughter and the unmissable joy from the company of the show's host Nicole Byer and the very sophisticated French baker Jacques Torres.
Byer is a stand-up comic, writer, actress, and host of the 'Nailed It!' franchise but her journey to doing all this was circuitous. She began by waiting tables at a disastrous restaurant that was once featured on 'Kitchen Nightmares'. Describing her previous workplace, she said it was "one-third Irish bar, one-third Indian restaurant... one-third cabaret room." She waited tables in the cabaret section, wasn't good at it at all but still made a lot of money in the form of tips because of how funny she was. She said, "They would give me a lot of money because they were like, 'You're very funny. You have to get out of here. You're very bad at this [waiting tables].'" She took those comments seriously and studied improv and stand-up and the rest is history.
Byer's career in stand-up started with the improv group called Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) that gave comedians like Amy Poehler, Neil Flynn, Adam McKay and several other stars their start. UCB even produced her first web series called 'The Pursuit of Sexiness' which was written and co-created by Byer. She has also appeared in guest roles in a number of TV series including 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' and '30 Rock' and was the star of the now-canceled web series 'Loosely Exactly Nicole' that premiered on MTV.
Torres is a world-renowned master pastry chef and chocolatier. He is also a member of the International Culinary Center community.
What could be messier than one 'Nailed It!' contestant? Teams! Twice the fun. Double the fails! From brothers to drag queens as well as 'The Kissing Booth' actress Joey King and her sister, this season's cast of duos proves the baking can actually be twice as bad. It's time to celebrate fails!
