The recently released season 1 of the cooking show welcomed many talented cooks who went on to become the winner. One such participant was Haley Herridge, who charmed the viewers and the judges with her sweet personality and effective cooking skills. Her impressive performance helped her earn many admirers, several of which are curious about her current whereabouts. If you are in the same boat, here is everything we know about the same!
Haley Herridge’s Easy-Bake Battle Journey
Haley Herridge entered season 1 of ‘Easy-Bake Battle’ in the very first episode. Along with Dave and Andy, Haley had to cook a perfect late-night fried dish with cheese and sauce for judges Antoni Porowski and Kristen Kish. Though she did not win the Dish Dash challenge, Haley’s Jalapeño Cream Cheese Wontons allowed her to proceed to the next round. For the next task, Dave and Haley were asked to cook a meal using only the ingredients available in the kitchen with 40 minutes of oven time. In the end, Haley won the title of Easy-Bake Champion with her Deconstructed Poppy Seed Chicken.
In the second episode, Haley was back to defend her crown and earn an additional $25,000. Facing off against Aprille and Michael, the cook had to make an appetizer within 30 minutes using at least two aphrodisiacs. Haley’s Spicy Artichoke Bites helped her impress Antoni and guest judge Derrell Smith, and she made her way into the Easy-Bake round. In order to present her take on a Beef Wellington, Haley made a Pot Pie dish inspired by it, helping her to win the challenge, and taking her cash prize to $50,000.
Moving on to the third round, the pressure to keep her crown for the third time in a row was certainly hard for Haley. Now facing off against Tara and Eman Neamat, Haley had to impress Antoni and Jacques Torres with a fun and fast kid-friendly snack using ingredients that kids often avoid. In response, Haley made a Kitty Soufflé Cake, which did not quite hit the mark for the judges, but she was able to retain her place in the competition. For the final stretch, Haley and Eman had to prepare a three-tier dessert platter. While the judges liked both platters, they ultimately decided to crown Eman the winner, marking an end to Haley’s journey on the show.
