ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Linebacker Brian “Rak” Arakpo and safety Michael “Griff” Griffin played college football for the University of Texas and went pro with the Tennessee Titans, but now these retired players have an unexpected passion: cupcakes. With Griff as head baker, Rak as lead cupcake decorator and their lifelong friend “Little Bryan” Hynson handling the bakery business, they are known as “The Cupcake Guys” and own a booming shop in Austin, Texas. In the one-hour special, three talented bakers get 48 hours, a baking truck and, with coaching from Rak, Griff and Little Bryan, are tested on their baking and selling skills to determine who has what it takes to go pro. The last baker standing is awarded a $10,000 seed money investment in their business
