Meet Your New 'The Great American Baking Show' Hosts

September 22, 2017

Ayesha Curry is having a week. And a good week at that. The chef, TV personality, and award-winning cookbook author landed two very public gigs this week. The first was her nod as CoverGirl’s newest model. The second, and the one that we’re really here for, was the announcement of her hosting the upcoming season of The Great American Baking Show.

The British television import will return to ABC in December with Curry at its helm, along with Anthony “Spice” Adams, former NFL star and media personality. Together the two will front the show’s third season.

Curry comes from an impressive cooking and media background. She's the eponymous star of the Food Network TV show Ayesha's Home Cooking, and penned her own cookbook, The Seasoned Life: Food, Family, Faith and the Joy of Eating Well. How will this success translate to her new role on Bake Off? I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
