I Need To Be on The Show 'Nailed It'

I Need To Be on The Show 'Nailed It'

Who doesn't want $10,000 for being a mediocre baker?


It's the summer, and school is out. It seems like the perfect time to be getting in shape, spending time outdoors, and with friends and family, right? No, it's the perfect time to understand why Netflix is a genius and start binge-watching shows that I didn't have time to binge-watch while in college.

The best show to watch right now on Netflix is "Nailed It." The show only has 13 episodes and 2 seasons (6 episodes in the first one, and 7 in the second), and there needs to be a third season. The episodes are fast, upbeat, and funny. Also, I think they're only like 30 minutes long.

Nailed It is a cooking competition show where mediocre bakers try to make Pinterest looking baked goods. A lot of them turn out awful looking and it is the funniest thing in the world to see these people attempting to make it, and to see the final ugly product. The people on the show, aren't chefs or bakers, they are average everyday people that have normal jobs that aren't in the food industry.

The host, she's the best part about the show in all honesty. Her name is Nicole Byer, and she is spunky, loud, weird, and funny. In some of the episodes, she gets to possibly annoy two of the contestants if a contestant gets to use the advantage, every single time she annoys the constants I laugh so hard that I begin to cry.

Also, her reactions to the food and seeing the contestants mess up is hilarious. On one episode the contestants had a make a cake that looks like sushi, and she uses these huge chopsticks to try to eat the cake like it was real sushi. It is hysterical.

Knowing the premise of the show and after binge-watching the whole first season in a sitting, I have to come to the conclusion that I should be a contestant on the show. Not only that, I think I could possibly win the show as well. That would be really nice, considering the winner gets $10,000, and I am thinking about how not broke I will be if that were the case.

I am the perfect contestant to be on the show for many reasons. First of all, I can't bake or cook to save my life. I can only cook pasta, eggs, and pancakes, but nobody should be eating them because I can't cook them well.

The big thing is that I cannot bake, but maybe who knows, I can start my baking as training to be on the show. I will still be mediocre because if I go on the show let's say next year, that's only 6 months of learning how to bake. That's miniscule compared to the time most of the contestants have on the show.

Also, if I train to be on the show and I get some of my friends who don't burn down their kitchens whenever they try to cook something, then I feel like I have a good chance of winning. I watch a lot of food network and I pay attention to what they're saying to the audience at home, I am a fast learner (you have to be if you're in college or else, you're like low-key screwed), and I am determined to win this money.

I think I should be on the show, and I think I am the perfect contestant to be on the show. I am funny, sometimes unfiltered, and I will make a fool of myself in the kitchen under stress because like I am in the kitchen in a high-stress environment. Those two things and me, should not go together, and it would make great television!

The Month of November For College Students, As Told By Nick Miller

At least we got some funny gifs out of the experience, right?

Just when you think things are finally starting to slow down because midterms are finished, the sudden realization that there's only a month left of classes hits you like a ton of bricks. You have final papers, final presentations, final projects, and final exams looming in the air, but at this point, you're just trying to make it to Thanksgiving break. As college students, the month of November can be pretty hectic (although if I'm being honest, what month isn't?), and I think if anyone can relate to our situation, it's Nick Miller from "New Girl," so here are 11 ways he just gets us on a personal level.

1. Looking at your planner for the next couple of weeks like...

2. Realizing that you haven't gone grocery shopping since October, and you're eating cereal all day every day.

3. Sitting in the library for hours on end

4. Waking up five minutes before class every day

5. Calculating what you need on assignments to do well in the class

6. Checking your bank account balance and thinking

7. Listening to your professor talk about the importance of studying

8. Watching Netflix when you should be doing literally anything else

9. Trying to get your life together

10. Pretending you're not annoyed all of the time

11. Realizing that Thanksgiving break is only a short time away

10 Relatable Kardashian Moments To Get You Through This Holiday

Will have you laughing through all the classic family drama


The holiday season is upon us known for its large meals requiring stretchy pants and its uncomfortable family reunions filled with inevitable drama. So as you are sitting at the family dinner table getting asked for the 16th millionth time why you are still single here are some of the Kardashians most relatable family moments that will have you dying of laughter.

1. That one relative thats always starts drama

Yes, all Kardashian fans remember when Kim lost her earring in Bora Bora on a family vacation and yes they were worth $175,000, but don't worry Kendall saved the day and found them. We all have that family member who finds something to cry about even if their problems are insignificant and need's a little reminder as Kourtney told Kim, "there are people that are dying".

2. That one aunt who's on her fifth divorce 

3. And the tea has been spilt 

Kim Kardashian will never be able to live down her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries just like you'll never be able to live down the time your parents walked in on you and your friends smoking. And of course they would never forget to bring it up at a family dinner, I mean how could they?

4. When your family is roasting your siblings and you're just happy it isn't you 

We have all been Kim at, at least one family reunion. There's always one sibling or relative who's messing up more than you so enjoy being the golden child while it lasts. While your at it take a few selfies while the lighting is still good.

5. That one relative who has your back always no matter what

The Kardashians teaching us true family values as Kris Jenner photographs here daughters playboy photoshoot. Moms always encourage their daughters, always.

6. That one aunt who always gets plastered 

We all have this one family member... and its the same one every time.

7. When your sibling takes the last piece of apple pie

You sit through all the family drama for real food which is actually edible unlike dining hall food so naturally, we get a little protective. So Khloés got it right if you touch my piece of apple pie I will fight you and if you curse at me yes, I bite back. Just some dinner table sibling rivalry for ya.

8. Always being thankful for everything you get..even if it isn't a Bentley 

The reality of life is that we can't all get Bentley's so yes Kim, you were right. But just remember to be thankful for what you do have this holiday season. Not everyone can own a Bentley like Kim... not even Khloé.

9. And be thankful that they are still around...

At the end of the day they always have your back no matter what so don't take it for granted.

10. Even if they drive you crazy most of the time 

You'll always love them no matter how much you fight.
