Buddy and Duff Return for Another Season of the Ultimate Cake Competition

Plus, check out all the other premieres and finales hitting your screens this July.

Buddy vs. Duff: The special two-hour premiere kicks off with Buddy sharing updates on his recovery following a gruesome hand injury, Duff talking about being a new dad to his baby girl, and discussing how their face-off competition came to be while revisiting some of their most-memorable challenges. Then with their teams of talented cake artists, they work in Jersey City and Los Angeles to build cakes inspired by an African safari. The teams have just two days to complete their cake creations before presenting them to their toughest judges yet a panel of 50 talented cake artists from across America.

The Globe: Robert Irvine welcomes four chefs with a love of global cuisine to a culinary experience that spans the globe without ever leaving the arena. In each episode of this globe-trotting series, four talented chefs compete across three rounds of culinary gameplay as they are transported to the greatest food destinations around the world via immersive LED screen backdrops. During every round, Robert reveals which city the competitors are virtually traveling to, as the chefs are faced with that location’s cuisine and ingredients in preparing the most inventive and delicious dishes possible. Ultimately, one chef will win a trip and move on to the finale for the chance to claim the $25,000 prize.

Chopped: In the wild conclusion of Alton Brown's Maniacal Baskets Tournament, champions from the first four battles compete for the title of Chopped Grand Champion! For the entree round, the chefs open the baskets to discover one of the items staring back at them! A weird wedding cake is part of the dessert round puzzle as the two remaining chefs face off to see who will score major bragging rights and the $25,000 grand prize.
