Anthony ‘Spice’ Adams will begin his gig as a co-host of The Great American Baking Show alongside Ayesha Curry this season beginning Thursday night at 9 p.m. on ABC. This season will feature sugar, Spice, and everything nice. (Heh.)

Both Adams and Curry were announced as the hosts of the show earlier this year in Adams’ newest television job. The former second-round draft pick and Chicago Bears tackle has also hosted a weekly show for WFLD and WPWR-TV called Inside the Bears, and also made recurring appearances on HBO’s Ballers.
The Great American Baking Show is a spin-off of The Great British Bake Off, which originally aired throughout the UK. Ayesha Curry certainly has some baking chops, as she authored a cookbook titled The Seasoned Life.
Spice Adams has been behind a number of viral videos recently on both YouTube and Twitter. Here is a sample of what the former Penn State standout has been up to lately:

Adams explained that, “At Penn State, my teammates and friends were my direct audience. I would create all of these characters and stay in character all day, sometimes in practices.”
After his Bears teammates convinced him to show the world his humor, he has risen meteorically in popularity through social media. If his past work both in football and in comedy are of any reference, Adams will be hosting a show worth watching.
