The 33-year-old, who tragically drowned at Lake Piru in California on July 8, is the guest judge on the second episode titled, "Birds of a Feather," and fans of Naya will not be disappointed by her baked goods knowledge or her sweet disposition as a judge.

What made this season of Sugar Rush "extra sweet" was that bakers who won the first or second round of the competition had an option to either take home $1,500 or bank another 15 minutes for the third and final cake round. Basically, the winner in Season 3 can leave with as much as $13,000. 

The winners impressed the judges and guest judges alike, and the confections just keep on getting better and better.
