Genre: Reality, Cooking
Premise: Two-person teams -- made up of either couples, friends or relatives -- are featured in the fourth season of Buddy ``Cake Boss'' Valastro's search for the ``Next Great Baker.'' Joining Buddy for the first time are two permanent judges, famed chocolatier Jacques Torres and Magnolia Bakery's Chief Baking Officer Bobbie Lloyd, who help the boss monitor the teams' progress and ensure they have what it takes -- both creatively and in mastering flavors -- to successfully run a baking business. Guest judges also help determine which teams advance and which are relegated to an elimination challenge on each episode. The grand prize is $100,000 and a chance to work for Buddy at his new bakery in Las Vegas.
