Netflix‘s viral sensation Is it cake? premiered in March 2022 and immediately caused a stir. The online meme-based reality show asks a panel of celebrity judges (and viewers at home) to discern which thing from a range of generic items — sneakers, burgers, hats, and more. – is actually made of cake. The hyper-realistic reality TV show landed on the streamer’s Top 10 English TV Channels list for four consecutive weeks after its premiere and also reached a similar audience in 75 countries around the world. In its early days, the show even sparked some controversy: most notably, audiences had very strong feelings about whether contestant Jonny Manganello cheated during the first episode’s challenge.
The show’s contestants compete in paid challenges, recreating household objects and raising $10,000 per episode if they can fool the judges. Show participants can also win $5,000 by correctly guessing if an item is a cake in a quick challenge. The first season culminated with Andrew Fuller, the baker sporting a neon green mohawk and matching beard, triumphing and winning the grand prize of $50,000.
It’s no surprise that the runaway success has been renewed for a second season. Here’s everything we know so far about season 2 of Is it cake?.
