I lose about 10 pounds first because I’m gonna gain about 15 pounds. That’s the first preparation.Sherry Yard to Meghan Cooper of JaMonkey
Well, this says a lot about her thin look during the show! While still talking about her weight loss and gain, she joked that there should be a game show about how much weight she would gain because she really enjoys what she does. Likewise, her love for pastries and every other food, makes it way more of a challenge to guess Sherry’s weight. So, it would really make a great game show, right?
Furthermore, the former COO of iPic Entertainment said,
I’m judging if they had to make two items I actually was eating both.
While still talking about her show, she revealed that she doesn’t watch her cooking competition in full herself. She also talked about being professional with her job and said that there’s more to love about her profession than it meets the eye.

Something about Yard’s Cooking Show
The Great American Baking Show Holiday Edition is currently in its 5th season as it first aired in 2015. This show came out as a spin-off of The Great British Bake Off, and though it wasn’t quite a success, it still has a significant number of followers.
This show is all about bakers competing against each other in the hopes of becoming the next Holiday Baking Champion. Though it’s quite hefty to get into the show, the competitors won’t have a grueling time as the competition is not that intense. But, it can be difficult at times as they won’t get much down time while filming an episode which usually takes two days to complete.
