Donna Kim On Great Chocolate Showdown Season 4

An elated Donna only announced her participation in the show a week before the world premiere. Via Instagram, she shared, “Normally I am a fiercely private person but when Food Network Canada asks you to take part in a baking reality show, it’s really hard to say ‘no’! Since the pandemic, I’ve been teaching myself how to bake. It all began with me building a sourdough starter, and then learning what the heck to do with it!! I am still in disbelief as to how I went from struggling with a high-hydration dough to being one of the ten chosen from both Canada AND the US to be part of the cast of Great Chocolate Showdown!!!”

The very post continued, “I’m nervous because truth be told, even though I am very outgoing, I’m innately a shy girl and a giant goofball soooo…EeeeeeeEEE!!! You might have noticed I’ve been trying to come out of my shell lately, which is why you’re suddenly seeing my face in my posts!”

On the Premiere Day, Donna shared another post, writing, “Well, I guess today is the day!! To all of you who have reached out, thank you SO much for your support!! It is very weird knowing that people will be watching me run around in a few hours.. 😃 Hope I do you proud!!”
