Zach Cherry told , “The main difference between the celebrity episode and a regular episode is that there is a lot more energy and yelling and comedy bits happening during the celebrity episode. You have a tent full of comedians who aren’t bakers, so, in their downtime, what they know how to do is try and make each other laugh, and try and make us laugh. There’s a chaotic energy. Other than that, it’s pretty similar. They have basically the same amount of time for the challenges and they get to work.”
On this year’s “The Great American Baking Show: Celebrity Holiday” special, which premieres November 10 on The Roku Channel, viewers will see a range of familiar faces vying for status as star baker. Competing celebrities include Joel McHale of “Community” fame, Arturo Castro (“Broad City”), Ego Nwodim (“Saturday Night Live”), the NBA’s DeAndre Jordan, Phoebe Robinson (“Everything’s Trash”), and comedian Heather McMahan.
“The Great American Baking Show: Celebrity Holiday” is available to stream for free on The Roku Channel starting November 10.
