Netflix’s Show About Hilarious Cooking Fails Makes Us Feel Better About Our Baking Skills


Pinterest is full of beautiful images, from home decor to beauty tutorials to recipes. (Lots and lots of recipes.) If you’ve ever tried to actually make one of those recipes, however, you may have found that the end result doesn’t always turn out as picture-perfect as the final product you see in the picture. Don’t worry, you’re not the only one who’s had her fair share of Pinterest fails. To prove you’re not alone, Netflix is releasing a show called Nailed It (an ode to the popular “Nailed it” internet meme) dedicated exclusively to Pinterest fails — the more hilarious, the better.

Each episode will feature three home bakers “with a terrible track record” and a trendy treat. Whoever accomplishes re-creating the recipe successfully will receive a $10,000 cash prize.

Netflix describes the new show “part reality show, part hot mess,” and after looking at these photos, we tend to agree! To help move things along, Netflix hired New York’s famed chocolatier Jacques Torres and comedian Nicole Bryer, creator of the web series Loosely Exactly Nicole, to host the show. New guest judges will also appear each week; so far, the roster includes Dave Arnold, a culinary scientist and director of technology at the French Culinary Institute; Valerie Gordon, the LA-based sugar queen and owner of Valerie Confection; wedding cake master Sylvia Weinstock, Food Network’s Zac Young, and Super Troopers star Jay Chandrasekhar.

Here’s a sneak peak of the hilarity yet to come:

What was supposed to be a pink pirate cookie turned out to be a pile of black-and-pink mush. Yikes!

Honestly, all things considered, this is pretty good. Remember: These are at-home bakers; it’s not like they’re Food Network all-stars!

Yikes. If only they had wrapped that fondant a little tighter!

Nailed It will be released on Friday, March 9. We’ll be watching (and laughing) with you!
