Nailed It is a baking competition involving home bakers — originally, it was solo bakers competing against one another but Season 5 spiced things up a little and was billed as “twice as bad” after introducing duo amateur baker teams. In each episode, whoever “nails” the two challenges, takes home a $10,000 prize and a trophy.

Premiering on March 26 and instantly making its way onto the trending list in the US, Nailed It featured a fun mix of celebrity guest judges. In the first episode was comedian and actor Andrea Savage. 

Who is Andrea Savage? 

Andrea Savage was the guest judge in the first episode, An Ungodly Mess, of Nailed It: Double Trouble. She is a California-based comedian and actor who has appeared in many infamous comedies. 

Two of Savage’s most well-known roles are playing the therapist character Denise in Step Brothers alongside Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, and starring as Naomi in the all-star romantic-comedy Sleeping With Other People.

She was also cast in the comedy movies, Dinner for Schmucks, The House, and Summer ‘03.

While she is well-versed in the movie world, Savage has also made a big impact in television. She first starred as Renata Vargas in Season 4 of the infamous Sweet Valley High series from the late-nineties. She also made brief appearances in many popular shows like Sabrina the Teenage Witch, The King of Queens, and Two and a Half Men. 

More recently, the actor has appeared in iZombie and Veep, before launching her own comedy series called I’m Sorry — available for streaming on Netflix. I’m Sorry is created by and stars Savage. She additionally serves as a writer and director for select episodes.

Sadly, the series was canceled after two seasons due to Covid-related production complications — and after it had already been renewed for a third season too.
