When is it this year?
so will probably start airing at the end of the month idk
24th August kick-off. Suck me off
you are a good person
Lee will be a consistent performer, but lose out because he's boring.
Val will fuck up an invention test midway through.
Michael will make star baker once, then crash out because his bread is wank.
Rav's going to put cumin in scone and Paul's going to love it.
and all the men with blue icing.
Might have to boycott the show now.
his DiS username is incandenza
This will rarely be mentioned during the show I am sure
last year was really lacking in anyone putting anything in the bin. no matter how much i chanted IN THE BIN! IN THE BIN! whenever anything went wrong, they never did it
Good all round show, enjoyed Benjamina's tears turning to joy.
Bloke who went out deservedly so, Val needs to step up.
Big fan of the laid back banker dude...thought he should have got star baker tbh
i wouldn't want to put too much pressure on val, she seems to innocent or something, maybe she's a secret evil genius
I had no idea it was possible to make Jaffa Cakes unless you were the McVitie's factory.
I have Benjamina in an office sweepstake so glad she was respectably mid-table.
those mugs definitely made it look impossible though...
although I do now want a packet of Jaffa Cakes.
how to make things in bake off in the technical challenge. I mean simple things like making the jelly, only because i never bake and they're probably easy with a small amount of practice. Likewise, I was impressed by how some of them didn't know what way up a jaffa cake should be.
but here, even more than say masterchef, if you don't know how to make a jelly, a creme pat, etc etc, why are you even there?
YOU SHIT CUNT.
Why am I even in this thread.
fellow gbbo fan
Also my gum hurts.
(Sorry I'm a week late with this.)
Did anyone watch the Nadiya programme afterwards? She's a really great presenter, and it all made me very hungry, especially the fish with mango chutney.
brilliant, terrible title too.
She's so ace.
She dances when she bakes. And she has a cartoon face (like someone off Postman Pat?)
but feel bad because i also think she might be... not okay?
Maybe I've just forgotten how it is in the early rounds. But there seemed to be a lot of dodgy sponges.
i have normally completely forgotten the first few bakers to go, they're always useless and utterly forgettable.
did love paul calling len or whatever he was called 'one of the 12 best amateur bakers in the country'. jog on mate.
Salesi is the best.
- self-deprecating, willowy female student
- tiger mum
- scatterbrain 30-something science dude
one of the bakers was using that looked rude
i was probably concentrating on pretending i don't fancy her while she was being slagged off by my co-tv watcher
Dunno, I'm not sure about her.
i forgot to follow all this year's contestants on twitter
Chronicles of Nadiya after GBBO top top TV
she is great. I could help shake the feeling that they people in her home town felt a bit put-out or something, i can't really put my finger on why though.
and all her family were there and they looked pretty unthrilled to see her.
Fuck the rest, fuck them to hell!
Then having it smashed to smithereens by Paul Hollywood's greasy fingers.
