For Duff Goldman and Valerie Bertinelli, it can be really hard sometimes as hosts to stay away from the action and not offer help when they see some of the children stumbling a little on Kids Baking Championship. They just cannot resist the urge to come in with a few words of advice (via Distractify).
“A few times I’ve begged our producer to let me help someone and she always tells me no,” Bertinelli said. As far as Goldman, he simply cannot help but be impressed by how tough the kids are no matter what they’re going through while competing. He explained, “These kids have such a backbone. If you were to critique my food the way we do theirs, I’d be like, ‘You’re wrong!'”
What’s clear is that it’s incredibly difficult to not get swayed while watching the kids give their best shot. For Goldman, it’s especially tricky to stay stoic when he knows a talented baker is simply experiencing a roadblock. He mentioned that he has teared up in the past when he’s seen children struggle on the show. Goldman explained, “They were just baking their hearts out. I couldn’t help it.”
