CLEVELAND — Two local bakers brought home a big prize after winning a competition on Netflix’s “Sugar Rush Christmas.”

Katie Gayner and Anthony Radencic from Cleveland took down three other teams in the competition to win it all.

Radencic said a casting agent for the show reached out and encouraged him to apply for the show after he posted about baking on the online forum Reddit.

“We were flown out to Hollywood to compete on a Netflix baking show that is international, who can say that?” Gayner said. “That was incredible, it was so much fun.”

“It meant a lot to me to be able to win this show and have people back here at home celebrate it with us,” Radencic said.

Gayner and Radencic didn’t just come home with bragging rights—the two won a very sweet prize of $10,000.

The two are featured on the “Sugar Rush Christmas” episode titled “Gift Exchange” on Netflix.
