'Sugar Rush' Season 3: Release date, plot, judges, host, trailer and all you need to know about the Netflix show
Netflix's 'Sugar Rush' is back. The competitive series is set to return with its third season and the challenges are going to be bigger and the rewards are going to be extra sweet. Here's all you need to know about it.
'Sugar Rush' Season 3 will premiere on Friday, July 31, 2020.
Each episode sees four teams of professional bakers compete with each other to achieve sugary success. The competition consists of three rounds that require them to create cupcakes, confections and cake. All the time they save in the first two rounds can be used in the third round where they are required to create an avant-garde gateau. The winning team goes home with a $100,000 prize. Each episode follows a theme and the challenges are centered around it. Contestants have created upside-down cakes, cakes with jewels and gems as well as ugly sweater cakes in the past two seasons of this competitive cooking show and it will be interesting to see what the show has to offer with its upcoming season.
Candace Nelson is the owner of Sprinkles, a cupcake bakery that has a devoted fan base which includes Hollywood stars. She also created the world's first cupcake ATM in 2012. Nelson is also a published author and her cookbook 'The Sprinkles Baking Book' is a New York Times bestseller that contains her all-time favorite recipes for cakes, pies, quick bread, cookies and bars, etc. Her celebrity friends Reese Witherspoon, Julia Roberts, Michael Strahan and Jessica Alba contributed their personal and family recipes to her book.
Australian patissier and entrepreneur Zumbo was not an academically sound student, but he was quick to find his calling after working in the bakery of his sister's supermarket. His Italian parents were not leaning into his dreams of getting into the baking industry and wanted him to stay in school and later on take over the family-owned supermarket. However, Zumbo moved to another state where he pursued an internship in a cake store.
For the next 10 years, Zumbo worked multiple stints as a chef and spent holidays working in Paris where he learned from luminaries including Pierre Hermé. In 2007, he threw open the doors of his first patisserie in Balmain where he sold Zumbarons (macarons but with his own twist). The store now has multiple outlets across Sydney and Melbourne. Zumbo has appeared on every season of 'Masterchef Australia' and was responsible for the show's famed croquembouche challenge that he set in the first season. He also co-hosted the show 'Zumbo's Just Desserts' with Rachel Khoo and Gigi Falanga.
Hunter is an author, producer and TV personality. He began his TV career as the host of 'Emogenius' on Gameshow Network. A year later, he started to host 'Sugar Rush' on Netflix and also 'Nightly Pop' on E! News. His late grandfather Hal March, who was the host of the popular game show 'The $64,000 Question', is someone who Hunter looks up to. Hal received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his stint on the show and Hunter aspires to achieve the same honor.
The trailer for Season 3 extends a little over a minute and reveals that all challenges this season are going to be 'extra sweet'. All participants go home with $1500 and the winners take home a whopping $100,000 per episode.
