Another minority bites the dust. Hermine next week to go I'm assuming?!

The great white straight British bake off show.

She had a terrible week. Your comments are no different from the Daily Mail’s claim that Nadiya’s win a few years ago was due to political correctness.

Yeah Jack's comments are strange considering she served raw cake and had 3 bad challenges. Its a shame though as she was a stand out until that point.

I like Mark, so was good to see him win star baker... although I don't know if this week it was wholly warranted this week. Linda seemed to get the most praise, so the fact she wasn't even said to be in contention seemed odd.

The comment's particularly strange when you consider that GBBO is probably one of the most inclusive and fair reality shows out there in terms of participants involved and format, there's no public vote involved, it's purely about baking ability and if you bake an inedible showstopper, then yeah, you're gonna go, no matter what race you are. I mean yes it's a TV show so clearly Rowan stayed a bit longer than he should've cos he was entertaining, but they couldn't justify it for too long. Of all the shows to call racism at, this is a weird target.

Gutted for Sura, but no one else could've gone really after that showstopper sad.gif I'm still hoping Lotti can bounce back after that bad week, I'm quite liking both the Marks as well. Who'd have thought brownies would be the breaking point of everyone?!

This season is a disaster in terms of getting all the big personalities out early. And now we are left with a nice boring white cis cast. That being said, I expected Sura to go after such a terrible week. Oh well, let's hope Linda and Hermine don't go any time soon because otherwise the remaining episodes will be unwatchable really laugh.gif

Linda is so lovely bless her wub.gif

She’s someone I always root for!

Quite excited for pastry week as it’s one of the more testing weeks for them!

Yeah I'm really not getting the minority comments at all considering that episode was an absolute disaster for Sura. Rowan was a ticking timebomb too, so it was only a matter of how long they could feasibly keep him for without it seeming like a running joke.

I'm glad Lottie managed to survive because I do feel like there's loads of potential there. I can't see her winning at this point though sadly. Really rooting for Peter and Dave!

They've been grooming him to be the winner since the first gluten-free bake ("ohmahgerd how clever and original and amazing!!1"). I will be shocked if there's a different winner.

I have little to no desire to watch this with Sura gone sad.gif I totally get that she had to go given what happened, but she was one of the few who made good TV and whilst they're all nice people, I'm kind of bored by the thought of watching a lot of them for the next like 6 weeks or however long sad.gif

I sound so dramatic lmao and I know it's not Big Brother it's just a fun cute little baking show, but still.

I wonder, between 10 and 20, how many times will they mention Marc(k?)'s daughters, Dave's girlfriend and Peter's brother we already seem to know literally EVERYTHING about?

Laura was spot on this week, and it was obvious that was Linda's last performance.

And I cracked up when Matt Lucas said "I won't go on Naked Attraction, my body is my own business" biggrin.gif

Aw Linda was such a joy to watch but much like Sura last week I kinda sussed that it was her final episode about half way through.

Very pleased for Laura though! She’s had some critique every episode but this really seemed to be like her thing what she’s comfortable making and it definitely played to her strengths. Bless her it was great to see her in her own lane though and her show stopper was beautifully decorated and her work all this episode all seemed spot on.

We’ve now had 5 different star bakers haven’t we. I don’t think anyone’s won twice yet. Hermine is getting stronger throughout too!

Japanese week next week could be anything and will probably be a real test for them a bit like the vegan week was a few seasons ago.

I don’t know if the standard of actual baking is as high as previous years or if the judges are just harsher this season (or if the challenges themselves are harder).

Mark had a great (well, in comparison to others at least?) Signature and Technical, but his Showstopper undid all that and he was "in danger" of leaving?

I honestly think, unless it's a huge, inedible disaster, too much weight is put on the Showstopper. Also I actually think Hermine was kinda robbed of Star Baker this week. She seemed to be the most consistently strong performer through all 3 rounds this week. So I was gutted when it wasn't her sad.gif

The sooner we get rid of Dave, the better tbh. You can tell his stuff is just so... bland, but he comes off as quite arrogant and thinks he is better than the stuff he actually produces.

Poor Linda, she did deserve to go this week as she was pretty much rubbish throughout but I will miss her. Lottie needs to UP HER GAME big time, but I reckon she will stick around for at least a couple more weeks anyway.

Each week I'm happy when there's someone who's obviously worse than Lottie, I hope she stays for as long as possible and of the obvious contenders I'd definitely be rooting for Mark. A shame Linda was so poor this week but she was so far behind the rest - a complete disaster.

Linda has always seemed lovely but was easily the worst this week Her eclairs were unrecognisable, her showstopper failed and her pasties were samosas. I'm sure she will be entertaining on Extra Slice.

Hermine finally had a decent week after having not really been anywhere near either star baker or elimination in previous weeks and Lottie definitely needs to up her game if she is to stay for much longer.

I spluttered out loud last night when they were asked to make pasties, and Laura said she was keeping it traditional and making a cheese & onion pasty!

Surprised that not one of the bakers tried to make anything approaching a Cornish beef-and-potato pasty

Paul’s liking of Lottie is more obvious by the episode.

Like he blatantly fancies her.
