Netflix Fans Are in Love with This Hit Reality Show...About Glass Blowing
Netflix is taking reality shows to a whole new level. First, there was Skin Wars, which tested people's body painting skills. Then, there was Love Is Blind, which centered on singles who were looking for love. And now, the streaming platform is treating fans to yet another binge-worthy competition series: Blown Away.
The second season of the reality show recently hit Netflix, and it's already generating a lot of buzz. In case you're unfamiliar with the series, it follows a group of skilled glass artists who compete for a cash prize and an artist residency at the Corning Museum of Glass. While the title sounds more like a Hallmark-esque film, Blown Away actually offers a lot of insight into the industry. Even better, watching these artists work is legit the most relaxing thing ever.
The official synopsis reads, "Ten glass artists from around the world gather in North America’s largest hot shop to push themselves to creative extremes in the quest to be named Best In Glass. In each episode, the glassblowers must impress a panel of art experts or risk being eliminated. At stake is a life-changing prize that will send their careers to new heights."
Blown Away is hosted by YouTuber Nick Uhas while Katherine Gray, an associate professor at California State University, San Bernardino, is the chief judge. Additionally, season two's contestants include Elliot Walker, Chris Taylor, Cat Burns, Nao Yamamoto, Mike Shelbo, Andi Kovel, Brad Turner, Jason McDonald, Ben Silver and Tegan Hamilton.
Blown Away's second season has already become a hit, judging by the reaction on social media. One fan said, "Just watching Blown Away on Netflix. The talent, techniques and sculptures are *SERIOUSLY* impressive." Another wrote, "Just discovered Blown Away on Netflix and it’s making me really regret not taking glassblowing in college when I had the chance."
We'll pass on the glass blowing classes, but we'd definitely sign up to binge-watch this series.
