The Great American Baking Show was short lived on ABC this year with only two episodes aired. Like any television show, all the episodes were shot in advance of airing, and this one had a winner.

The champion this time was a Baton Rouge native who never got to see her winning moment on television. According to The Advocate, Vallery Lomas won the third season of the American remake of the popular British baking show. 

ABC had only aired two episodes, when sexual harassment claims came up against one of the judges, Johnny Iuzzini. These claims come from former employees of Iuzzini and were not associated with the show.  The show was promptly canceled after these claims surfaced. 

The paper reports that Lomas, who lives in New York, was disappointed that her run on the show would not air but felt the issue of sexual harassment should come to light.
