Blown Away Season 3 Story
The host of the show is Nick Uhas who is a former contestant of Big Brother USA along with a science YouTuber. Katherine Gray, the chief guest of the show, is an artist and associate professor at California State University. The winner of the show will receive a cash prize of $60,000 and get a chance to stay at the Corning Museum of Glass. The first season was filmed in a warehouse in Hamilton, Ontario.
The show is just like any other competition show, ten people are fighting with each other to name that one winner. But, what’s interesting and unique about this show is that it focuses on glassblowing which is a physically demanding and tactful talent and that most people have probably never witnessed. The contestants work with the melted glass to mold it into various sculptures, vases, and perfume bottles. The high degree furnace-like place is just mesmerizing.
We can see many tools and things that are needed in this work. Though it is a reality and a competition show, it gives us an idea of how the glasswork is being done and how the workers and the experts mold the melted glass into amazing-looking objects, which will not take even a minute to break.
All the contestants are very talented, unique, and have grace in their work, but if this is a reality show, the winner has to be only one. All the judges are also very good, as they are not harsh and rude and mentor every contestant with no partiality. They give them applause and praise their work.
