  1. Jürgen made challah as his “yeasted cake” and you cannot convince me otherwise. It looked identical to a Guinness (or other stout) challah with a filling, right down to the egg wash. Who egg washes a cake? When the judges described the taste, they described challah. I found it strange the different tiers of the cakes that the judges chose to cut into. For George, they picked the one they knew would be raw, for Freya, one they knew would be drier, etc. Any idea what illness Noel came down with before final judging? Matt should have done it alone without saying Noel was sick. They pr
  2. I agree Kunal should not have gone, but I think Alina should have. Her signature bake was completely undercooked and her showstopper was inedible. She did worse in the technical than Kunal. He only had the wrong number because one fell (and unlike GBBO, they don’t let you pick it up off the ground), while she literally cannot count. Also I never like when someone’s decoration comes right out of a mold and other contestants take risks or make things by hand. Either way, I don’t see her lasting long. Steve’s bee cake was adorable, and he rightly was star baker.
  3. She was a guest on The Ranganation this week. I found her to be very laid back and relatable, much more fun than other times I’ve seen her on shows.
  4. I watched the first two episodes. My rambling thoughts: I do not understand where the “comedy” is. So far the dead fish is the only character I have found any sympathy for. That and maybe the niece whose aunt is such an a$$hole that she didn’t bother to buy her a birthday present. Kate’s character started as unlikeable and by the end of the second episode is utterly despicable. The actress playing Toni is amazing in her role, which has been the only highlight. Not sure if I am going to bother watching episode three. Oh yeah, that scene was just… something. 🤢
  5. Didn’t the illustration for Maggie’s showstopper say “Paris skyline”? I was berry confused at her final design. Sorry. Couldn’t resist. I’ll see myself out…
  6. The names they give cereal to avoid copyright issues are a riot. Flaky corn? Fruit rings? How are there still bakers who don’t blind bake the crust for a pie? Every time it trips someone up. The tropical fruit sounded delicious. Too bad the crust was inedible. Tomato cake? Seriously? I know it’s a thing, but have they ever had such an out there ingredient for only one contestant? His vampire story in the first round did not make sense to me. Surprised a pumpernickel cake beat out cake flavored cake. Her decoration was my favorite, so I guess I can see why. I was not a fan of too
  7. That’s how Hell’s Kitchen does it for the finale, too. It’s painful to watch.
  8. Absolutely agree. Also, why show the rankings when the person who was at or near the bottom of both challenges stays over people who did well in the first round? It’s so confusing.
  9. Maybe I missed it but why did Charlotte get three carpenters/decorators and Jon one while everyone else had two?
  10. Siobhan’s voiceover said she was using hakeme, which is really beautiful when done properly. Simple but elegant. Shenyu’s design was just messy. And she didn’t follow her own advice of not going over a stroke twice. I don’t understand why she refused to put her things in the drying room. Keith’s face when she claimed two minutes of a heat gun does the same was priceless. If not for Peter’s help, I wonder if she would have even had pots to glaze. Poor Adam. Keith does not like his aesthetic. His mushroom house was stunning a few weeks ago, and his tiles this week were the be
  11. Very excited about this new season. Interesting they added Alan Carr’s name to it. Maybe more people will watch this series. Love Micaela, former doctor Peter, and Jon with no confidence who gets his inspiration from drag. The sooner Charlotte is gone, the better. “You need the designer to build the entirety of your plan for the room? No. I need him more to screw something basic in and remove plastic as I lie on the mattress recovering from all the energy I expended being so passive aggressive. I couldn’t possibly do physical labor myself.”
  12. Anyone else watch the covid special? Elaine was still trying to control how DeSean gets to feel. It was heartbreaking seeing how she thought he should just comply and to see how much emotion DeSean has been repressing. His Hulk metaphor was so apt. He lives his life pleasing everyone to be safe in a world where people’s implicit biases and attitudes make him unsafe. I am glad Sam and Lauren are still together and even gladder they decided against a baby as a bandaid on the relationship. Seeing them in their backyard of their new house felt like a happily ever after. The new co
  13. I don’t know how many episodes you’ve watched yet. After watching the first six, my explanation is Overall, it is amazing to see some of the incredible things the contestants come up with, and I enjoy the clips with advice from the judges. I would never reflex a tulip though. I much prefer how they look closed. If you want an open flower, use a flower that is meant to open, but I guess that’s just me.
  14. Her hallway is the same vomit green as the paint she chose on the show. Ha. Looking at her color choices, it does seem like she might be a little color-blind. I truly do not comprehend anyone feeling “at home” in those garish rooms.
