The Truth About Sabrina Coombs From Holiday Baking Championship Season 8

A TV show like "Holiday Baking Championship" is the result of hard work. According to an Insider piece, those who participate in the show have to prepare themselves for unexpected twists and turns. Celebrity chef Duff Goldman, who is often spotted as a judge on the series, once said, "One contestant can absolutely crush it all the way through a season and then one bad day can get them sent home. It's a tough break but them's the rules." Why does this happen? Well, as per Goldman, this helps ensure that the show is authentic. As Goldman explained, their goal is to ensure that "the only factor [in winning] is the food on the plate."

On the eighth season of "Holiday Baking Championship," per Food Network, twelve talented participants will try to overcome several challenges to win top honors — and a grand prize of $25,000. One of the contestants this time around is Sabrina Coombs, a pastry chef from Atlanta who is hoping to make her loved ones proud by winning the show.
