Nailed It! Mexico is a spin-off of the popular Netflix series Nailed It! which premiered in 2018. This series, hosted by Mexican comedian Omar Chaparro and pastry chef Anna Ruiz, is specifically focused on the baking challenges faced by contestants in Mexico. The show follows a familiar format with three amateur bakers attempting to recreate professionally-made, elaborate desserts. The contestants are judged by Ruiz and a rotating celebrity guest judge on presentation and taste. The twist of this show is that the contestants are not professional bakers, but instead regular people who have no experience in baking. As a result, their attempts at recreating the desserts often fall short of the intended result.

However, it is the humor and light-heartedness of the show that makes it stand out. Omar Chaparro’s comedic commentary adds a humorous element as the contestants struggle to understand the recipes with little success. The contestants themselves are often just as amusing as they try to figure out how to make fondant, sugar flowers, and other complex decorations to beautify their creations.

There are four rounds in each episode, with the first round being the “Baker’s Choice” where each contestant picks a cake from a preselected list. This sets the tone for the rest of the episode as the baker’s attempt to recreate the cake while under pressure.

The second round is called the “Invention Test”, in which competitors must use their creativity and baking knowledge to make their own version of a dessert. This is where the show gets interesting as the amateur bakers attempt to use unconventional ingredients like chicharrones, avocado or even beer to make their desserts.

The third round is the “Elimination Challenge” which is the most challenging of all the rounds. The contestants are given a difficult cake and have to recreate it to the best of their ability. This round decides who will be sent home.

If a contestant is successful in all three rounds, they make it to the final round which is called “The Final” where they compete for a grand prize of $10,000. In this final round, the contestants have to recreate a complicated dessert with the help of a professional pastry chef.

Throughout the episode, Anna Ruiz guides the bakers with baking tips and tricks on how to create the perfect dessert. Her attention to detail and expertise are essential to the success of the show. Furthermore, guests like Mexican actress Aislinn Derbez, actor Luis Gerardo Mendez, and pastry chef Paulina Abascal bring an added level of excitement and professionalism to the show.

Overall, Nailed It! Mexico is a fun-filled show that will leave viewers laughing and often cringing as they watch the contestants’ disastrous attempts at serving up professional-looking desserts. This is a must-watch show for foodies and baking enthusiasts who want to see the hilarious side of baking. Despite some obvious missteps in the contestants' baking skills, it's amazing to watch their attitudes remain positive and determined as they tackle each round. This show is bound to inspire viewers to try their own culinary creations, and to never give up on their dreams, even if baking is not their forte.

Nailed It! Mexico is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (18 episodes). The series first aired on February 8, 2019.
