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!

3 shows to watch on Netflix if you like true crime

I just recently finished number two and I'm an emotional wreck.


Pretty recently, I've started getting into true crime. I listen to a few podcasts that usually talk about cases and the documentaries or movies that are associated with them and then what their theories are. Listening to these podcasts is one of the best ways for me to pass the time at work, which can get pretty boring, so these shows really keep my brain moving and questioning.

I like to talk about these shows with anyone that will listen, so I figured I'd share some of my favorite true crime shows/documentaries that are on Netflix right now that way you could join in on the excitement.

1. Who Took Johnny

Johnny Gosch was a 12-year-old boy that went missing from West Des Moines, Iowa in 1982. He has now been missing for almost 36 years and his disappearance has been almost untraceable. He was working as a paper-boy on a September morning and he never returned home. No remains were found but there were a few eye-witnesses that saw Johnny speaking to a man in a car near where they later found his paper-wagon and his dog.

I really recommend this documentary if you like a lot of mystery but you should know to go into it that there is a trigger warning for child-molestation and sex-slavery. If those things bother you, I would probably choose one of the other documentaries.

2. The Staircase

This is the most recent true crime documentary I've watched. By that, I mean I literally finished it this morning. I won't go into too much detail because I think this is such an awesome show and one everyone should check out.

In 2003, Michael Peterson, and American-Novelist was convicted of killing his wife, Kathleen. In my opinion, there wasn't a reason to convict him because as you'll see if you decided to watch it, Kathleen died due to a horrific accident in which she fell down the stairs of their home in Durham, North Carolina.

Peterson's fight to prove himself innocent lasted from 2001, the year Kathleen died, until 2017.

3. Amanda Knox

This one I find very relatable and I recommend it for any college-age student that is thinking about studying abroad. Amanda Knox was a college student that went abroad to study in Italy. Like any other student studying abroad, she started hanging out with a boy and easily fell in love with him. Days later, she comes home to find her roommate dead and is then blamed for the murder.

This documentary is crazy and will have you yelling at the screen because you just can't understand how the Italian police could be so cruel and just not understand.

If you're a true crime nut like I am, I would definitely check out some of these documentaries on Netflix. They're a great way to pass the time and really get your brain thinking. I wouldn't watch them alone at night though.
