The first season of The Great American Baking Show, released under the title The Great Holiday Baking Show, premiered on ABC on November 30, 2015 as part of ABC’s holiday programming schedule. Six amateur bakers competed in twelve challenges throughout the competition for the title of America’s best holiday baker.

This season was hosted by husband and wife duo Nia Vardalos and Ian Gomez. The judging panel consisted of original The Great British Bake Off judge Mary Berry and American pastry chef Johnny Iuzzini. As with the British series, this season was filmed in Welford Park with slight holiday decorative modifications made in the set known as “The Tent”.

After four weeks of competition, Lauren Katz was crowned the winner with Nicole Silva and Tim Samson as runners-up.
