CBS announced today a new summer reality series called The American Baking Competition. The series is based on the format of the hit UK show "The Great British Bake Off" premieres Wednesday, May 29 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Jeff Foxworthy is set to be the host of the show, while Paul Hollywood and Marcela Valladolid will be the judges. Paul Hollywood is a famous UK baker and current judge of the British version of the show, while we all know Marcela Valladolid from her Food Network Show Mexican Made Easy.
The American Baking Competition will feature skilled amateurs competing in baking challenges with one ultimately being crowned the winner.
I guess this is CBS's answer to ABC's The Taste?
