Posted by: Suedehead2 Aug 14 2019, 03:03 PM

It all starts again on Tuesday 27 August.

I'm ready *.*

Never forget:

I am as moist as a good sponge with anticipation.

Posted by: ElectroBoy Aug 18 2019, 10:10 AM

Hopefully the winner this year will be someone that should win rather than last year when Rahul should've been out about a month before the final, then messed up the final and still won

Posted by: Jack Aug 18 2019, 10:20 AM

Omg I always forget how much I disliked Rahul, so so annoying to watch.

Last year had a lot of likeable contestants though, in particular Kim-Joy and Ruby wub.gif

I loved Rahul, his seriousness was adorable to watch and his anxious manner around everything was basically me <3

Hyped for this year *.

Its....... on.................

Ugh at Ruhul making an appearance

Posted by: ElectroBoy Aug 27 2019, 07:26 PM

Lots of chaotic messes... that house though the young boy made looked great until he smashed it

My guess is the guy who keeps cutting himself or the one who put double the fruit in will go - they seem bigger messes than the rest

EDIT - or the goth who can't melt sugar

Posted by: Brett-Butler Aug 27 2019, 07:51 PM

I really want Helena to be the Kim-Joy of this season, although I know in my heart of hearts that there is only one Kim-Joy, and it is Kim-Joy.

Omg I get Kim Joy vibes from her too I'm hoping we're right bc I low-key stan but she seems like she could go this week oops

Posted by: hermespice Aug 27 2019, 08:59 PM

Omg!! Can someone please make a GIF of the older guy stroking his rocket cake?? I nearly spat my dinner out 😂

Posted by: Chez Wombat Aug 27 2019, 10:31 PM

^omg that was hilarious, must've been so much giggling at that when it was filmed.

Also stanning Helena, a goth on Bake Off is always welcome, loved all those birthday cake designs!

Pretty sure they went easy on Jamie cos of his age, he's gonna annoy me :/

Posted by: Jonjo Aug 27 2019, 10:56 PM

Entertaining first week! My early faves are: Amelia, Helena & Henry (he really reminds me of Thomas Brodie-Sangster: Nanny McPhee, Love Actually & Maze Runner trilogy)

I feel like they're gonna try and push Jamie as the Liam of this series. David can F/O though. Ugh. He's gonna be the one who never really fails (and when he does it'll be all staged and over dramatised and "omg I'm leaving this week..." despite knowing full well someone else will go) and gets all the way to the end.

Not too big on Rosie either, but it's early days yet. Every one else depends on further weeks.

But the showstoppers all looked great for first week! I was really impressed by the designs of them.

Posted by: kye Aug 27 2019, 11:22 PM

i know some people canít hide their emotions on their face but david was so so SO smug that iíve taken such a disliking to him already + i know iím not alone.

like jonjo said, paired with the false Ďoh my god, itís my time to leaveí weíll undoubtedly get in a few weeks, itís all a bit.. ugh.

Posted by: Liаm Aug 28 2019, 12:20 AM

Amelia, Henry and Helena are my faves too, I hope the latter just had an iffy week because I love her personality. Henry is adorable and Amelia just seems like such a lovely person and has great potential with her ideas!

David and Rosie I'm not so keen on, the former's smugness gave me Dan from last year teas but nobody can be that bad drama.gif Rosie is trying a bit too hard to be funny and likeable and it's working in the opposite way.

Posted by: Conanderella Aug 28 2019, 01:30 PM

Aww Dan was so likeable, it's a shame. Jamie stayed literally because of his age, he was bottom on the technical and the showstopper didn't stop any shows...

There was something super off about David and I'm not alone it looks like yay!

Henry is my first pick for the Top 3 for sure.

Jamie did do well in the first round which is probably what saved him

Dan went - crap/ crap/ meh
Jamie went - great/crap/meh

Had Dan not put in his extra fruit in the first bake it probably would've been a different result

Posted by: Suedehead2 Aug 28 2019, 03:06 PM

With the way they edited it, you could be forgiven for thinking that Jamie was the only one to do really badly in the technical. His effort was spectacularly bad, but some of the others were also pretty awful. It's just that the footage of the baking process concentrated fairly heavily on Jamie.

Posted by: Miss Americana Aug 28 2019, 04:03 PM

I know it's early doors but for me this is seeming like one of the most likeable casts since I started watching! There are so many of them I'm already stanning, and it was such an entertaining first episode! *.*

Henry is adorable and I loved how he was genuinely bowled over by the comments on his bakes (but definitely not in an eye-roll way a la Rahul). Also loving Michael, Michelle and Amelia wub.gif

Posted by: Klaus Aug 28 2019, 06:53 PM

I don't know why (cos there's only one more baker and there was actually 15 more minutes) but the editing seemed so much quicker than normal in order to get round everyone that I was left feeling unsure who was who and who did what! Although it sure did also make it obvious as to who would be leaving/bottom 2 laugh.gif

The cast is SO young though, I miss my Vals sad.gif

Some of the showstoppers looked really great though so hopefully we're in for another good year!


Posted by: Jordan Lee Aug 28 2019, 08:22 PM

Aw Jamie is so likeable.

I was so expecting him to go but I was pleasantly happy he stayed.

I always feel sad we lose someone in week one Iíd much rather we see everyone bake at least for two weeks before we get rid of people.

A few times I actually picked the winner by show one too.

Rosie stood out to me. She was very cool and calm and didnít seem in a fluster. Due to her job she seems like sheís going to perform well under pressure. Iíd be betting on her.

THIS.

Mr D* and I were commenting on this season not providing us with any iconic older characters that seem based on Victoria Wood comedies sad.gif



As for the result, I nearly always get it right but was convinced Jamie was getting the boot - he had such a heavy amount of airtime and that's usually the case for whoever goes week one.

David is so smug :/ He's nearly on the level of Dan last year, not that anyone could quite be THAT bad drama.gif

Stanning Helena though, hoping she leapfrogs Jamie to stay!

Posted by: ElectroBoy Sep 3 2019, 07:40 PM

Jamie basically has to bake some sort of God-Like sculpture now to stay in

Why? I liked Jamie. He deserved to go, but I see no reason to celebrate. He's clearly a lot better than his performance suggests; he wouldn't have made it on to the show otherwise.

Posted by: Brett-Butler Sep 4 2019, 09:08 PM

Was worried that Helena would be out after that disastrous blind bake, but she knocked it out of the park with that spider-tastic Show Stopper. Hope she's got a few more tricks up her gothy sleeves.

Posted by: Chez Wombat Sep 4 2019, 09:15 PM

I must admit Jamie's the first contestant where it had me cynically wondering if his cooking skills were the only reason he was there. He seemed quite a bit below the usual standard even for someone that leaves early.

Helena's Spider sculpture was incredible wub.gif Did love the sheep and the chicken as well (though I'm struggling to warm to Rosie).

Posted by: kye Sep 4 2019, 09:20 PM

the judges said a few times that jamieís bakes were tasty, they just lacked finesse. he looked like he knew what he was doing, he just didnít have the same fire as the rest of them - if he couldnít bake, theyíd say so.

I hope you're wrong. I wouldn't want to see Bake Off choosing people because of their personality rather than their baking skills. After all, the idea that baking skills might be less important when selecting contestants was one of the reasons people were uneasy about the move to a commercial channel.

Posted by: Jordan Lee Sep 4 2019, 11:52 PM

If they chose Jamie for that reason heíd have went a lot further than week 2!

He was good to be fair itís just the pressure gets to some more than it does others.

Bread week next week. Am I right in thinking the bread week star baker usually makes the final

i wasn't 'celebrating' though. just a sigh of relief the correct decision was made and tbh he should've gone in the first episode. i liked Dan far more

Posted by: Suedehead2 Sep 6 2019, 08:12 PM

Can Jamie be on Extra Slice every week?

Posted by: ElectroBoy Sep 10 2019, 07:36 PM

David seems to get more smug by the episode...

At this stage Henry is my fave and I like Priya and Alice too

Posted by: ElectroBoy Sep 10 2019, 08:21 PM

No big loss in that exit

Posted by: Klimawechsel Sep 10 2019, 08:30 PM

So Michael is making the final after winning bread week? funky.gif

Posted by: dandy* Sep 10 2019, 08:37 PM

Yeah that was a deserved exit this week, she was by far the weakest. Two weeks in a row where it's been impossible to hide even with editing.

Posted by: Liаm Sep 10 2019, 08:59 PM

100%, she was very lucky last week that Jamie managed to stretch another week and thus was a bit worse.

Henry is pulling away as my fave, he's too adorable with his reactions to things and the faces he pulls. I also love Priya, on the other end of the scale smug David and Rosie can go right now. Idek why I don't like Rosie, she's not done anything really but she's so irritating and I can't really even put my finger on why laugh.gif

Posted by: RabbitFurCoat Sep 10 2019, 09:17 PM

Rosie is really annoying. Michael my favourite from the early weeks, maybe it's because the ages are so similar but doesn't seem much to be differentiating them this year, most of the women just blend into one.

Posted by: Jordan Lee Sep 10 2019, 09:26 PM

David I donít really see the smug thing about.

Rosie I can sort of see it. I think she low key looks down on some of the others but tries to come across as being modest when discussing her bakes. She reminds me of someone I worked with when I worked with Jet 2.


Posted by: Suedehead2 Sep 10 2019, 09:30 PM

I'm convinced Phil is actually a Paul Whitehouse character.

Posted by: Jack Sep 10 2019, 10:51 PM

I think Rosie is low key hilarious? I don't see it! laugh.gif

Posted by: Cqmerqn Sep 10 2019, 11:00 PM

Omg I also thought that about Rosie. David can bugger off too.

Noel's shirt is a bit of a head fcuk - all fuzzy if you stare at it for too long

...also Henry's reaction to Michael's cake being a mess are hilarious

Posted by: Brett-Butler Sep 17 2019, 07:14 PM

Another week, another awesome Noel Fielding shirt that I want. If any if BJ's more fashionable members know where I can get that lovely green shirt, please let me know.

Posted by: ElectroBoy Sep 17 2019, 07:42 PM




Posted by: ElectroBoy Sep 17 2019, 08:12 PM

Phil sacrificed for Priya and Michael

tbh just here for Henry and his reactions to everything

Posted by: Klimawechsel Sep 17 2019, 08:20 PM

Glad we got to keep Priya over Phil! Neither are winners but Phil's bakes have never wowed me. Interesting to see a look of surprise at going home as nearly all these Brits are convinced they are going home each week.

Posted by: Suedehead2 Sep 17 2019, 09:20 PM

To survive when her technical was so bad that neither judge bothered to taste it was quite an achievement. At least Michael's signature tasted good despite looking a mess. All the more reason for not liking his comment that he would have binned it if he was making it at home. Why bin something that is perfectly edible?

Now for the discussion about Henry's balls.

Posted by: Jordan Lee Sep 17 2019, 10:14 PM

Phil was shocked!!

To be fair so was I.

Priya and Michael had bad weeks but the final challenge sort of played as a strength to them due to their heritage.

This was one of those weeks for me though where hardly anything looked appetising to eat laugh.gif

Posted by: Liаm Sep 17 2019, 11:02 PM

Priya's technical was an absolute disaster, I didn't think her showstopper was gonna be enough to come back from that (I thought she was gonna have to totally knock it out of the park to stay), but I'm glad it was!

Then again, basically everyone did bad in the technical so they did say a lot of them were in the mix to go depending on the Showstopper. Phil is one of those I kept forgetting was there so from a viewing standpoint I can't say he's too much of a loss.

Posted by: Jonjo Sep 17 2019, 11:57 PM

His shock that he was going home though lmao. He coasted through on being too bland and safe, I'd say week 4 is perfectly fine for him whereas Priya and Michael have both had fantastic bakes before this week so the potential for them to stay was far more beneficial to the show.

Henry solidified himself as my absolute fave today. My heart melted quicker than his Ice Cream was going to when it was clear what was going to happen to it </3 Thankfully he was top 3 in the technical and (I assume) signature challenges so he could afford the poor effort for the showstopper - at least he took a risk though! He'll be the contestant where he won't get star baker for a while, but will absolutely smash it out the park one week, to the joy of pretty much everyone and then go the week after in the quarter final or something laugh.gif

I don't actually "hate" anyone this year tbh. Not even David. He seems arrogant, but it isn't quite as unbearable as Steven from a couple of years ago.. yet. Rosie is irritating, but her nervous laugh is adorable.. pretty much the only thing going for her though tbf.

Thatís a good point about Phil to be fair!

Like heís been constantly ok throughout the whole thing. Iíve never had him down as having a bad bake where he could be in danger but then on the other side of things heís never been in the running for star baker either.

He reminds me of someone thatís been on it before a few seasons ago it may have been a BBC series. He liked shortbread biscuits and the judges kept saying all his bakes were nice but plain.

Posted by: Jonjo Sep 18 2019, 12:27 AM



I STAN *.*

Posted by: Mart!n Sep 18 2019, 10:56 AM

Love the episode, especially the bit about Henry's balls laugh.gif

On the whole it was disaster of a show all round I was surprised it wasn't a double elimination to be honest.

My favourite contestants seem to be Steph and Alice. I do hate Michael though, Henry should stop wearing ties laugh.gif seriously do you cook or bake with a tie on. mellow.gif

Posted by: Klaus Sep 20 2019, 09:44 PM

Another week, another over-reliance on the showstopper.

I do prefer Priya but they ddnít even taste a round! The older contestants are always quicker out the door if theyíre slight whiff of danger. It should have been Priya or Michael.
