Fox’s Crime Scene Kitchen is a baking show with a twist as the contestants have to work not only as chefs, but detectives too!
The bakers have to work out what dessert has been baked in the kitchen by finding the clues and ingredients left behind. They then have to recreate the recipe, with the aim being to advance to the next round and win the $100,000 prize.
The judges are chef Curtis Stone and cake artist Yolanda Gampp, and the show is hosted by actor Joel McHale.

Who is the Crime Scene Kitchen host?
Crime Scene Kitchen is hosted by actor and comedian, Joel McHale. Joel is best known for hosting The Soup and his role as Jeff Winger on the NBC sitcom Community.
Talking about Crime Scene Kitchen, Joel McHale said:
“These bakers, some of them are very well trained–they have formal training. And then, some of them are self-taught. And you’ll be so surprised at how far the self‑taughts get and how not that far some of the trained ones get.”
He continued: “Bringing in the crime scene [element] really levels the playing field in such an interesting way.”
