Out of sheer embarrassment, fans of Joey and/or Hunter King might have stopped watching the episode of Netflix’s Nailed It! featuring the celebrity sisters about halfway through. During the first half of Season 5, Episode 4, Joey and Hunter King receive the task of baking spiced donut travelers. Things take a rough turn for the King sisters when their donuts taste like they went swimming in a community pool. Unfortunately, the judges agree the young women used too much saffron. And, the donuts tasted like they were chlorine flavored. This, of course, resulted in the judges spitting the donuts back out onto their plates.
