The final two contestants have a glass blow-off in the finale of the season. The winner gets to take home $60,000 in cash prize and gets the title of Best in Glass.

Blown Away Season 3 Judges And Hosts
The show’s host, Nick Uhas, is an actor, former competitive inline skater, a YouTuber, and a TV host. In addition to his Big Brother past, he is famous for hosting The Weather Channel’s ‘Brain Storm’ show and for hosting his YouTube channel, Nickipedia.

Each episode features a special guest evaluator from a different walk of life who is passionate about glassblowing. Therefore, if Blown Away season 3 is to be produced, Uhas and Gray are likely to return every episode with a new batch of contestants and guest evaluators.
Blown Away Season 3 Release Date
Based on the success of the previous two seasons, we may assume that Netflix will renew Blown Away for a third season. Ron Carroll wanted it to be “binge-worthy.” For that reason, all the episodes were released at once. In addition, a former factory building was converted for filming, suggesting that the series has plans for the future.
It is not surprising that the show will be renewed for a third season, considering this, as well as the positive reviews. It is likely that ‘Blown Away’ season 3 will premiere sometime in early 2022 if and when that happens.
Blown Away has stirred up the world of Glass blowing and has managed to grab the world’s attention and popularise glass blowing as a field of fine arts. Blown Away Season 3 hasn’t been announced yet but it is imminent that the show will be renewed soon.
