Who Went Home On Summer Baking Championship 2023?
Lisa, Kristina, Kyle and Ally went home on Summer Baking Championship 2023. Ally was the last contestant to be eliminated in Episode 4.
Summer Baking Championship marks the sixth installment of Food Network's Baking Championship. The competition series premiered on May 15, 2023, with Jesse Palmer serving as a host.
The Baking Championship franchise includes the Kids Baking Championship, Halloween Baking Championship, Holiday Baking Championship, Spring Baking Championship, and its spin-off.
Each championship features dessert challenges and weekly eliminations until one participant is crowned the winner.
In the Summer Baking Championship premiere, we got two back-to-back episodes, where ten talented bakers from around the country tackled summer-theme baking challenges.
These budding bakers will compete for a chance to win the cash prize of $25,000 and the title of Summer Baking Champion.
Who Went Home On Summer Baking Championship?
Lisa, Kristina, Kyle and Ally went home on Summer Baking Championship. The fourth episode of the series premiered on May 29.
Throughout the season, the competitors will have to elevate summer classics like cobbler, cream pies, s'mores, and ice cream. After all, the competition is all about having fun in the sun.
Three episodes of the newest baking series have already landed on our screens. So, what were the challenges? Who has been eliminated from the show so far? Here is all we need to know.
Episode 1: Dockside Desserts
The series kicked off with a challenge to recall pleasant summer memories, as the competitors were tasked to create doughnuts that look like water floaties with 3D decorated elements.
Most of the doughnuts were underwhelming, with some bakers not understanding the theme.
But there were some good ones, including Yohann, who won the Pre Heat challenge and earned an advantage for the Main Heat, where they had to create a cake with a gelatin water feature.
Alyssa won the premiere main heat with her colorful and fun cake, offering a unique flavor profile borrowed from her Filipino heritage.
Unfortunately, two bakers, Kyle and Lisa, were at the bottom. In the end, Lisa was the first competitor eliminated on the Summer Baking Championship premiere.
She struggled with many aspects, from her gelatin being hard to the cake leaning. Moreover, her decision to use modeling chocolate as water balloons didn't pay off.
Episode 2: Let's Cool Off
The second episode was all about ice cream. In the Pre-Heat, the bakers made ice cream sandwiches adding their creative inlay.
The inlays in the cookies the bakers used included seashells, palm trees, lemons, and tie-dye. The bakers were more confident compared to the first episode challenge.
However, the problems knocked on their doors when the judges tasted their cookies. While some had more flavor, some were hard to bite.
But it was Kyle who stood out with his lemon inlay ice cream sandwich.
In the Main Heat, the bakers were tasked to make ice cream desserts inspired by ice cream truck treats.
The ice cream treats on option were chocolate caramel ice cream bars, chocolate dipped vanilla cones, chocolate vanilla almond bars, cherry pineapple swirl pops, and raspberry ice cream bars.
It was again Kyle, who impressed the judges with his raspberry Swiss roll. And it was Kristina, who went home.
Episode 3: Summer Fun in the Sun
Episode 3 was all about outside summer activities. The bakers were challenged to make radical s'more desserts with wild chocolate flavors in the Pre Heat.
The bakers had to use fresh-pressed juice to make a dessert inspired by bike riding. This time, they worked in teams of two -Kyle and John; Zoe and Carlos; Yohann and Alyssa; and Anrika and Ally.
The judges truly praised Zoe and Carlos's yuzu and coconut s'more candy bar.
On to the Main Heat, the bakers had to make their own unique version of a Paris-Breat. Some bakers struggled with their proportions and flavors in this challenge.
They also had to use fresh-pressed juice in the bake.
Alyssa came on top in this episode with her caramel apple Paris-Brest. Sadly, Kyle Davis had to leave because he only got his choux pastry on the plate. He was eliminated without any deliberation.
Episode 4: Summer Fruitastic
For episode 4 pre heat, the contenders had to make either a clafoutis, crumble, or cobbler.
Although a few bakers had mistakes with their dough, the desserts were relatively successful. The clafoutis and its custard were the most challenging.
Ally won the pre-heat, as the judges loved her blueberry cobbler. And while the appearance was not so pleasant, the balanced flavor earned big praise.
The win earned her an advantage -she was able to switch her main heat flavor if she wanted.
The main heat challenged the bakers to make watermelon desserts that look and taste like watermelon.
Since Ally had an advantage, she decided to swap her watermelon and ginger flavors for Anricka's watermelon and lime flavors.
Then, came a mid-challenge twist, adding feta to the dessert.
Ally fell hard after the pre heat win. Her pavlova was underbaked and her combination of watermelon and lime did not sync with the feta.
Unfortunately, Ally was sent home in episode 4.
Why Is Nancy Not On The Summer Baking Championship?
Nancy Fuller is not on the Summer Baking Championship because she is busy with other endeavors. She is an American chef and businesswoman hailing from Cleverack, NY.
She is the host of Food Network's Farmhouse Rules and owns Ginsberg's Foods, a multimillion-dollar business she runs with her husband.

Her food and recipes represent her farm surrounding and philosophy of feeding others with simple and delicious meals from the heart.
Over the years, she has gained quite a popularity, attaining over 210k followers on her Instagram.
Yet, many viewers were displeased with her presence in the Spring Baking Championship, with one Reddit user starting a thread saying the chef is loud and bossy.
"Can't stand Nancy Fuller either!!! She needs to go back to her barn in upstate NY!!!" another added. "Maybe that's why I like her, she's everyone's drunk aunt," another user defended.
