In the world of competitive cooking, the Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest, with its million dollar grand prize, is as big as the Oscars... in the eyes of those competing. So it´s only fitting that the 41st contest heats up in Hollywood, CA. One hundred mini-kitchens transform a giant ballroom into a kitchen arena, where one hundred finalists cook side-by-side competing for the one million dollar prize. THE MILLION DOLLAR RECIPE follows seven of the hopeful contestants all the way from their home kitchens to the dramatic Bake-Off Contest in Hollywood. Each contestant rides the emotional roller coaster of the event and tests themselves in the heat of battle.
The contestants profiled in THE MILLION DOLLAR RECIPE range from Sue, a woman who is a Yale graduate and Richard, a nearly seven-feet-tall man who is a master of Kentucky clog dancing. A dedicated housewife, Karen, sees the Bake-Off Contest as the ideal way to engage in the competition she loves, however, Sharon, a struggling single mom enters on a whim with the hope that winning the grand prize can change her life.
