Meet the Bakers of 'The Great British Baking Show' Season 4

Jeff Pfeiffer

British baking icons Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood are back to judge another season of 12 all-new baking contestants as the food competition phenomenon The Great British Baking Show (known as The Great British Bake Off in the U.K.) returns for its U.S. airing of Season 4 on PBS. (This upcoming season aired as Series 7 in the U.K. late last year, and received the highest-ever viewership for the series.)

Comedy duo Sue Perkins and Mel Gidroyc serve as hosts of the series that looks for the best amateur British baker. This season, competitors include a jet engine designer, a gym teacher and a college soccer player, among others, all of whom have other passions—including baking, which they will put to the test here.

Check out the 12 new bakers (not quite a baker's dozen) for Season 4 in the gallery above!
