I used to be at this time years previous after I realized that Dan Levy previously hosted The Great Canadian Baking Show, and I am actually ashamed it took me so lengthy to be enlightened to this reality. Severely, if I would recognized this sooner, I might’ve fast-tracked my secret plan to flee to Canada, and my emotional well-being would probably be in a far higher place than it at the moment is, however alas, I digress.
Dramatics apart, here is what I can inform you about Levy’s time on The Nice Canadian Baking Present: He starred on the CBC TV sequence’s first two seasons again in 2017 and 2018, internet hosting alongside English actress Julia Chan till they each bid adieu to the gig final 12 months on account of “scheduling conflicts.” (If I needed to guess, I would say that most likely translated to producing and starring on Schitt’s Creek‘s unbelievable ultimate season for Levy.) As for the present itself, it is the Canadian model of The Nice British Baking Present, bringing collectively 10 contestants for a sequence of challenges that solely start as soon as Levy and Chan exclaim the famed “prepared, set . . . bake!” catchphrase.
The key draw back of studying about Levy’s TGCBS internet hosting stint? It is nearly not possible to observe the complete episodes and see him in motion if you happen to stay within the States as a result of, y’know, it is a Canadian present. Fortunately, there are just a few enjoyable clips and a boatload of GIFs floating across the web, and it seems like Levy introduced his signature attraction and a few large David Rose vitality to the job. Till it is protected to hire a automotive, drive to the border of Canada, and binge-watch the primary two seasons of TGCBS within the entrance seat of stated rental automotive, replaying the movies and GIFs forward must suffice.
