    Hi- I thought there was a separate discussion about the show somewhere, but I could not find anything except under the Great British Baking Show. While I was watching the Disney World Christmas show tonight, they showed something on the screen about the Great American Baking Show. I just looked it up, and the third season of the program is going to premiere next Thursday 12/7 at 8:00 pm on ABC. It sounds like they are going to run the show for three weeks, with two episodes running each Thursday, and so a total of six shows. Love Productions is again putting it on, but instead of Mary Berry, Paul Hollywood is going to be one of the judges, and Johnny Iuzzini is returning as the other judge. There are going to be two new hosts too. I wish Mary was coming back, but Paul is ok. Hope this helps, Nancy

    Hi- I just checked the ABC website, and there are a lot of people that are angry that Mary is not coming back. They don't care for the new hosts either. Ayesha Curry and Anthony "Spice" Adams are going to be the hosts. Apparently she has a program on the Food Network, and is married to Stephan Curry the basketball plater, and Anthony "Spice" Adams is a retired football player. He played for the Bears from 2007-2011.

    Hey, it's nice to see Spice get the good network gig! I judged Baconfest with him a couple years ago. He's a pretty funny guy who should be perfect for this job in a "fish out of water" type of way. Hopefully, they'll play to his strengths and not take the whole thing too seriously.

    Did anybody watch the show? I couldn't watch it because I had rehearsal tonight at ETHS. The group that I sing with is doing a holiday concert with the Evanston Symphony this Sunday at ETHS, and we has to rehearse with the orchestra while the show was on. I finally got home around 10:00. I've been online shopping for some kitchen things that I need, and I noticed that there is a ton of Aleysha Curry branded stuff out right now, including some cookware and some dishes. The show is supposed to run 3 weeks, but I don't know if that means that there are supposed to be six shows or not.

    Hi- I just found out that the show got creamed in the ratings last night by Thursday Night Football and the Big Bang Theory. They started out with ten contestants, and two of the contestants have been eliminated so far. They are doing two more hours 12/14, and the final two hours will take place on 12/21. One of the contestants is a priest. None of the contestants are from any where near here. Hope this helps, Nancy

    The remaining episodes of the Great American Baking Show have been pulled off the air by ABC in light of the sexual misconduct allegations against judge Johnny Iuzzini. 8 women have made claims about him when he was the pastry chef at Jean-Georges.

    Unfortunately, I can only assume there will be more stories about chefs to come....

    Not to make light of this serious and disappointing development but between seasons, 3 of the 4 on-air personalities associated with this program were replaced and in the end, the 1 that remained was the 1 who brought the show down. Classic show biz irony.

    I definitely think there should be consequences for these guys, but I'm starting to wonder about the innocent people who are involved in a project with them. I feel especially bad for these poor amateur bakers who were looking forward to their time in the spotlight. I've heard they'll announce the winner, but that's it.

    I was just going to remind people that the show is on again tonight. Oh well I guess not. I went on the shows website, and apparently they took down all the previous episodes of the show. I never saw the one last week. Does anybody know where I can see it? Maybe you tube? The show still shows up on ABC's schedule for tonight, but I read somewhere else that they are going to show reruns of the great Christmas light fight, and a country holiday music show that was on last week.

    Who is going to be next? I am just waiting for somebody to report a woman. Thanks, Nancy

    Hi,

    Just went over to ABC wifi stream to find last week's episode gone. All that remains are snippets from last year's competition.

    Hi- The Great American Baking Show is coming back for a new season on ABC on Thursday, December 6 at 8:00om. Anthony "Spice" Adams is returning as one of the hosts. The other host is going to be Emma Bunton from the Spice Girls. Paul Hollywood is returning as one of the judges, and he is being joined by Sherry Yard. I wish Mary Berry would return as one of the judges, but at least we have Paul. There is a new Great British Baking Show cookbook out. I think it includes the recipes from the latest season with Paul's new co host. Did they ever announce who the winner of the Great American Baking Show was last season? Hopefully there will not be any hitches this year. Hope this helps, Nancy

    HI,

    I did not watch last night's episode, so I don't know if these recipes are from this season or another.

    The UK Show has it on their website as well as UK magazines and newspapers. I tend to search for the recipes by name plus the show.

    Those recipes Cathy posted are from previous seasons. There are no recipes from last season on there. The show was okay last night. There are no bakers that stand out. I thought both of the bakers that got eliminated last night deserved to be. I don't care for the British host on the program. The hosts did not interact with the bakers as much as the ones on the first Great British Baking show did. It seems like the bakers did not interact with each other as much as they did on the British show. When the person that was being eliminated was announced, nobody but Paul went up to hug them. The show looked like it was still being filmed in Great Britain. One of the bakers on the first show though was having problems with whatever she was baking though, and she switched gears and baked something else that she knew by heart. There are two more weeks to go. They started out with ten bakers. Hope this helps, Nancy

    I was proud of myself for not recognizing who Baby Spice is/was. I wouldn't have had any idea who she was even if she'd had her initials tattooed on her forehead.

    I think the new team of hosts and judges are less entertaining than the previous team, even with the 2 carry-overs. Mary Berry left a huge void.

    They rebroadcast the show last night, and I watched it again. I noticed this time that during the second hour one of the bakers was running behind, and was still plating his mini cakes when they announced that he only had one minute to go, and another one of the bakers came over and helped him so he was able to finish in time. One of the bakers is from Chicago, and she has not been eliminated yet.
