Tonight at 9pm ET/PT on Food Network is the season 5 finale of Holiday Baking Championship where the winning baker will take home $25,000.  The three remaining bakers competing for the prize are: Douglas Phillips, Sarah Lucia Tafur, and Lerome Campbell.

The episode description for tonight's episode states, "Three bakers remain in the competition, and in the pre-heat, they have to create a beautiful edible holiday ornament display. For the final main heat, the bakers channel holiday gift shopping by creating a cake that is decorated like a gift on the outside and reveals a surprise inside when sliced. For one talented baker, the ultimate gift will be $25,000 and the title of Holiday Baking Champion!"

Holiday Baking Championship has been getting great ratings for Food Network and has been one of the highest rated shows on Food Network this year.  I will update this post with the season 5 winner of Holiday Baking Championship after the episode airs.

Restaurant: Impossible Returning To Food Network With New Episodes

Robert Irvine revealed that Restaurant: Impossible is returning to Food Network with new episodes in 2019.  The show is currently casting and the show is expected to film in January-March of 2019 according to the application to get on the show.  With that timeline for filming, I would expect the new episodes to start airing on Food Network in mid-to-late 2019.

Food Network decided not to renew Restaurant: Impossible back in 2016 and Robert Irvine went on to star in his own talk show, which was canceled earlier this year.

Restaurant: Impossible usually had good ratings, so it isn't much of a shock that it is returning to Food Network with new episodes (note - reruns currently air on Wednesdays at 4am).  We will have to wait until the new episodes air to see if the format will be of the original Restaurant: Impossible, the ambush version or something different.

As always, I will do updates on the restaurants that appear on the show and they will be updated on the Restaurant: Impossible Updates Page.  Are you looking forward to the return of Restaurant: Impossible?
