Food Netflix series 'Nailed it!' brings out the funny side of failure
Here’s What Happens to Your Body During a Polar Bear Plunge
<p>Planning to kick off 2018 with an icy New Year's Day dip? You might want to read this first.</p>Of all the ways to ring in the new year, jumping into frigid water while nursing a hangover seems like one of the least appealing options. Still, that hasn’t stopped thousands of people around the world from stripping down to their bathing suits on January 1st, and diving into the nearest ocean or lake.
- On Friday, released a new baking show called "Nailed It!"
- "Nailed It!" was inspired by a popular meme in which people document their unsuccessful attempts to follow recipes.
- In each episode, three home bakers try their best to recreate elaborate cakes, treats, and more.
- The results are hilarious and endearing, and the show is a refreshing break from your typical reality cooking competition.
A new baking show by Netflix deviates from your typical cooking competition in one endearing way. "Nailed It!" was inspired by a popular meme in which people document theirattempts to follow Pinterest recipes. In case you're not familiar, the results are often , and, from time to time, downright .
The Easiest Meal Prep Tool No One Is Talking About
It’s January. If you’re anything like us, that means a social media feed full of gym membership discounts, diet tips, and meal prep advice. Though we’re sure you’ve gotten your fair share of information on what carbs not to eat this year and which exercise is finally going to get you those elusive six-pack abs, we’re here to let you in on a secret. There is one tool missing from your routine that just might actually make it more bearable to stick to that new year, new you meal prep resolution.
With six half-hour episodes in its first season, "Nailed It!" is deliciously bingeable. Here's what you can expect.
"Nailed It!" pits amateur bakers against one another — but there's a twist.
Conventionally, reality cooking competitions like "" or " " feature amateurs who perform at, or even above, the level professionals do. "Nailed It!" abandons this formula to celebrate imperfection. In each episode, three home bakers try their best to recreate elaborate cakes, treats, and more. The one who gets the closest wins $10,000.
But unlike other shows, no one on "Nailed It!" really ever gets that close — and that's the entire point. Instead of making it seem like anyone, the viewer included, can expect professional results at home, the show highlights just how complicated Pinterest recipes usually are. Because for most us, these baking "fails" are the best we can do, and that's impressive enough.

Here are a few standout creations from the show.

This contestant created a bubbling volcano cake that successfully "erupted."
The judges congratulated this contestant for completing her cake in a short period of time.
It's hard not to love a show where everyone's an underdog.
Imperfect creations aside, "Nailed It!" also entertains when it comes to commentary. The show is hosted by comedian Nicole Byer, iconic chocolatier Jacques Torres, and a guest judge — and they all often say exactly what you're thinking.
When contestants were asked to recreate a Rapunzel cake, for example, Byer confessed, "I don't mean to laugh, but your princess is terrifying. [...] And I don't think anybody is coming to rescue her."
3 Shows Normalizing Black Mental Health (and Doing It Well)
As a mental health advocate, suicide survivor and entertainment enthusiast, it brings me great joy to see the direction that black Hollywood is moving in to normalize the mental health conversation. Here are three shows doing a stellar job at pushing the conversation forward:
But the judges also share useful tips about baking, both for the contestants and for viewers at home, along with words of encouragement. "I want to give you credit for having courage and guts to do this," celebrated cake designer Sylvia Weinstock tells a contestant in the very first episode. "Because it's something you've never done before and I think that is remarkable."
