Re: Great British Bake Off 2019

I`m now curious, but resisting the temptation, what`s in the spoiler @Cleoriff joy

I`m going to watch GBBO in catch up later and will post my thought later. Sounds very interesting week.

Re: Great British Bake Off 2019

@Cleoriff @Mi-Amigo Last night after cooking dinner, eating, and taking care of Cookie and Brownie I completely forgot it was Bake-Off catch-up night and watched an episode of the Dark Crystal show on Netflix ... apologies guys, I promise I'll be 100% prepared to discuss this week's episode tomorrow morning grimacing

Hi @EmilieT . It`s quite understandable, with your commitments, you missed GBBO catch-up. Hope you enjoy it when you get the chance.

@Mi-Amigo 

Luckily, I have the email showing your comments before you edited (you should have put it under a spoiler then we could continue talking under spoilers lol)

Spoiler
I totally agree. I shouted at the TV when they announced Phil!! He was firmly in the middle of all challenges and Priya messed up every single one of hers. Even she looked shocked! TBH, they were discussing a double eviction and in my opinion Phil wouldn't have been the second one. A bit of a fix there. Phil was shocked as well... you could see that!

Re: Great British Bake Off 2019

@Cleoriff - my bad. I totally agree with your comments in your spoiler. Reeks of favouritism rather than ability in my opinion. I really hope this does not go on to spoil what, up till now, has been a very good programme. I`ve also got my favourite as to who I would like to see win this year`s GBBO...

Re: Great British Bake Off 2019

@Mi-Amigo @Cleoriff I'm all caught up now Bouncy

 

I was also not expecting Phil to be eliminated at the end of those 3 challenges, it was quite a surprise. The theme of the week didn't resonate with me too much as a vegan, not having or baking with any dairy, but I thought they were interesting challenges and bakes I didn't know before. Next week is also a new theme they've never had before, right? It sounds like it'll be good fun!

@EmilieT 

Yes I think Priya should have been eliminated. She messed up every challenge and Phil didn't!!

Yes next week is a totally new theme..Roaring 20's

Re: Great British Bake Off 2019

GBBO Week 5 = tonight

 

The Roarin` 20s - nine bakers remain...

 

 

Spoiler

Signature bake - custard pies

Technical bake - being kept secret

Showstopper - tiered cocktail cake 

 

 

With no Word Hunt Diamond game in play during this week`s programme, I shall be watching tonight, rather than on catch-up. Should be interesting...
