I’ve gone back and forth between liking Matt and Noel to being indifferent to Matt and Noel, but this was my first time feeling actively frustrated with them. Why, oh why does every shot of them have to be mugging? And JHC with the @#!&ing spoon! I’m surprised none of the contestants broke the damn thing in half.
Laura’s signature challenge was so painful for me to watch. Dang, I don’t remember ever seeing such a disparity between one baker and the other two in the finale.
Also frustrating? Prue allegedly not knowing it was going to be hot when she chose chocolate. It seems like England has had damn heat waves every damn summer for the last decade. Either move filming to spring or fall, or stop doing challenges where weather will be a factor. It’s just not fair.
Props to Dave for re-doing less successful past bakes. I wouldn’t have had the nerve for that in those circumstances. It looked beautiful. Yay on the brownies! Too bad about the choux buns and babka, though.
I loved the look of Peter’s showstopper.
The updates at the end turned me into a blubbering mess.
