I am sure we had an old Bake Off thread but given what happened last time I tried to resurrect a thread, I thought it safer to start a new one :ph34r:

Back tonight amid criticism that the contestants are on the young side. Guess I will be tuning in though.

I'll watch it but the tail end of the last series was disappointing.

After the farce of the last one I'll not be watching this series.

It's fixed and we all know it. :D

It was, which was a great pity as I think some of the earlier rounds were good. 

It's a lovely bit of escapism for me though, fixed or not.

No, she quit when it moved from BBC. It's Prue Leith now.

I don't have a problem with Prue and I do like Sandi & Noel rather better than Sue & Mel. Wouldn't mind Paul being replaced mind!

Nadiya definitely my favourite bake off winner.

Agree, replacing Paul would be a bonus. I believe Mr Rat is handy in the kitchen, just sayin'.:huh:

I do a mean scrambled egg, but baking?

 

I made a strawberries and cream shortcake type thing a few years back, which tasted damn fine but looked like a road accident.

 

Beyond that, well, I've made an arse of those part-backed croissants you get at Tescos previously, so I dinna think I'm Mr Hollywood's natural heir.

Is the blond woman who speaks like she's injested helium Welsh?

 

I'm toiling to place her accent.

Also, SPOILER ALERT...........

 

 

 

 

 

I thought the kid with the bleach blond highlights was nailed on to walk, surprise that he's still around.

She grew up in Oxfordshire went to Cambridge  and lives in Somerset. 

We all thought it was going to be the young lad out 1st also..

Did you gasp when one of the other young guys broke that lattice work?

The star baker is Welsh.

i love these threads where i have no real idea about the subject but i love the interaction 

what's the best about MasterCard Australia is no snakes get through the audition process 

i hope the 'nice' format won't change with new judges next year

That's why I enjoy Bake Off, a bit of harmless fun! One contestant (I think it's Rosie) has a pet python!!! And then in the signature bake one contestant made a snake cake, which I found creepy!

I'm hooked again

I was sad about who left because I really admired what they did for a living.

The right one got eliminated this week. Shame as he was rather sweet, but I think I could have baked a better guitar!

Aye, should've gone last week.

I was just thinking the same thing last night AJ.

 

I'm developing a liking for the girl with the helium voice but the blokes are all kind of irritating.

 

I liked the Gothy lassie who got huckled this week, just cos she's a bit left field, but she was obviously getting bumped relatively early.

 

Let's see how it goes down the stretch.

This series isn't grabbing me so far. Nobody I am rooting for, Michael is a local lad, but not sure that's enough!

I said the same thing at work today.

Agreed.  I'm getting the shows about a week after y'all so I have to avoid this thread but this year's crop are not doing it for me.  Not sure why, maybe they're too competitive or something.
