Who Is Joining The Great American Baking Show?

As usual, Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood will serve as judges on The Great American Baking Show. They also judge the U.K. version of the baking competition.

It’s not been revealed which celebrities will compete in the big white tent for the holiday special. Last year’s competitors included Joel Kim Booster, Liza Koshy, Marshawn Lynch, Chloe Fineman, Nat Faxon, and D’Arcy Carden.

Just as viewers saw in previous years, celebs will be faking and baking their way through the three challenges. None of the competitors are considered to be bakers in the slightest. Each of them will be competing to be named the next Star Baker.

The tent will take on a festive look, including Christmas trees, lights, wreaths, gingerbread houses, etc. In a trailer for the upcoming show, Prue Leith said that she was excited to see what the American bakers brought to the table.

“I’m hoping that these bakers will bring something new to the tent,” she told People. “America genuinely is the great melting pot of the world.”

Leith admitted that she doesn’t watch any of the baking shows that she’s a part of though. “I never watch Bake Off, and the truth is not that I don’t think it’s a wonderful show, I do. I’m so vain, I cannot bear seeing my wobbly bits on view all the time,” she said.

Who Are The Hosts For The Holiday Special?

Casey Wilson, a Happy Endings alum, will join Zach Cherry from Severance to host the holiday special. Cherry is a returning host from the 2022 special, however, Wilson is new to the tent this year.
