TLC's Next Great Baker Starts Tonight With Two Homegrown Contestants
The second season of TLC's Next Great Baker premieres tonight, and two bakers from the metroplex are among the baker's dozen vying for a chance at the grand prize of $100,000, a spread in Brides Magazine and an opportunity to work with the show's host Buddy Valastro in Carlo's Bakery, in Hoboken, New Jersey.
Competitor Chad Fitzgerald from Duncanville is the owner of The Cake Guys, a bakery with locations in both Duncanville and Dallas, while 23-year-old Tony Frys from Forth Worth is the co-owner of the The Sugar Art. Check out the contestant videos after the jump, and make sure to check out City of Ate for exclusive interviews and updates.
