Nailed It! returns for Christmas special
Staff Reporter | On 13, Nov 2018
Christmas is coming early for Nailed It! fans this year, as Netflix’s baking show returns for a Christmas special next month.
The streaming giant’s answer to The Great British Bake Off, the series celebrates failure as well as success, as it pits amateur bakers against each other in a 30-minute contest: recreate a selection of stunning baked goods with no experience and see who can get the closest to not making a total mess. The winner walks away with $10,000.
Hosted by Nicole Byer and Jacques Torres, and described as “part competition, part hot mess”, the show is unwrapping a festive treat for Christmas, promising the same hot mess but with extra jingle. Home-bakers will be taking a shot at recreating edible holiday masterpieces to bring some extra cash home for Christmas. “Christmas trees, Hannukah cakes… We’ll probably eat things that are pretty… awful,” says Byer in the new trailer for the special.
It joins a number of Christmas outings for Netflix originals this year, including Neo Yokio: Pink Christmas (released on 7th December) and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale (14th December). It’s also not the first time Nailed It! has cooked up a special extra course, with Season 2 ending with a surprise bonus episode, featuring Queer Eye’s Fab Five as guest stars.
Nailed It! Holiday premieres on Friday 7th December. Because nothing says Christmas like accidentally burning food while trying to keep the family entertained. Here’s the trailer:
Nailed It!: Holiday! is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £8.99 monthly subscription.
