I often find myself wanting to sit down and just watch a good ol’ cooking show; but my friends (i.e. normal teenagers) usually aren’t too fond of my entertainment choice. With the relatively new show “Nailed It,” streaming on Netflix, both my and my friends’ needs are met with not only cooking but also comedy from the iconic host, Nicole Byer of “Girl Code.”

The series allows home cooks who aren’t very skilled in the kitchen to come in and put their skills, or lack thereof, to the test. A theme is chosen and the contestants are challenged to re-create a food item or baked good to the best of their ability in hopes of winning $10,000.

The contestants on the show clearly don’t know much about cooking and neither does the host, it’s hilarious to watch them struggle to replicate what highly renowned chefs have made and watch Nicole just roast them.

There are two rounds of cooking in each episode and the first round is honestly just hilarious: Nicole just sits at the panel with her fellow judges, eats and roasts the contestants; nobody gets eliminated and the winner only gets a giant ugly chef hat.

The second round is when it gets real. The host chooses one or two people to have an advantage depending on if they did so good in the first round that they deserve it or if they did so badly that she thinks they need it. There really doesn’t seem like there are rules on this show; it’s more like a safe space for Nicole Byer to get her sarcasm out at random people and eat.

You probably won’t learn anything from watching this or get invested into it at all but when you don’t know what to turn on and if you have any interest in people making a fool out of themselves while cooking then this is a good option.
