Nailed It! Double Trouble is the fifth season of Netflix’s hilarious baking series Nailed It, where Byer and Torres give home bakers impossibly complex concept cakes to bake, with hilariously bad results. But in this season, teams of two will compete for the $10,000 prize and the trophy. Host Nicole Byer suggests to head judge Jacques Torres that they should have teams compete on the new season. The theme to the first episode is Greek gods, with Andrea Savage as a guest judge. The teams are first tasked to pick one of three gods and make a stacked cupcake sculpture in 45 minutes. The bigger challenge is to create a “Medusa makeover” cake, shaped like Medusa with sculpting chocolate to be used for the snakes in her hair. Oh, and they have 90 minutes to do the whole thing. If you’re expecting a different dynamic from Nailed It! because there are now teams of two competing instead of solo bakers, then you’ll be disappointed. Then again, if you like the show just the way it is, you’ll be delighted, because Double Trouble is the Nailed It! we know and love, just with the added factor of seeing teams bicker and stumble as they try to assemble these concept cakes that would make Buddy Valastro want to throw up his hands in frustration.
