Answering my own questions:
- Season 6 (Paige, Karthik, Davis, etc) might have had the best baking talent overall. But I also thought Season 4 had the best top 5 (Linsey, Bryn, Abby, Alex, Julia). Season 4 also had some of the worst.
- For me, hands down I loved Linsey and Bryn the most. Funny, smart, mature and just flat out adorable.
- Davis (season 6), Cole (season 3), Yashimabet (season 2) are the most talented as bakers.
- Yashimabet's finals cake, Linsey's galaxy cookies and finals cake.
