    Great British Bake Off: 2019

    So it seems we had a few watching in the last season (Ruby and Manon ) so here's an actual thread.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-49396844

    Contestants have been announced.

    13 instead of 12 this year and it's a slightly younger than normal group as more than half are in their 20's with the oldest being 56.

    It absolute doesn't need some edge, it needs left alone to be the lovely fluffy twee little thing that it is.

    Having said that I'd have lopped that old bitch's head off if I was Ian.

    It was awful last year in comparison to the previous year (which had been my first year watching it).

    You had heart in Liam and Julia and real jaw dropping talent with Steven, I didn't think last years quite matched up and I dropped off quite early.

    Everyone on this years looks both incredibly young and insanely attractive (for British TV) in a clear play for that Netflix audience.

    I reckon I'd have a decent run on bakeoff, if I put a bit of time into building up a half-decent knowledge base of the bits I don't have much experience with like bread.

    That Muslim winning was basically like doping in sport. Her husband keeps her inside all day. What else is she meant to get good at?

    I'd have paid more attention in Geography if my teacher looked as good as Alice and used cake to teach.

    That's what I was wondering, I was on the lookout for a Liam Gallagher head thinking I'd missed him.

    How did that sugared up hyper child even get past the applications, let alone get on the televised bit?

    She's a bit scary. You could picture her sabotaging things culminating with her dousing a full tent in petrol. "But Mummy says I should always win".

    Definitely thought Ladbantz was gone there. He could be dragged through it though like Mahow said.

    Channel 4 may have already fucked up by telling us the order of elimination.

    If the list is anything to go by then I know who is next out

    Just watching the first bit now. Do Channel 4 not know what a biscuit is? They’re bars.

    The whole thing is a victim of its own success. Whereas before it was endearing and a bit twee, it's now packed with wall to wall arseholes. That chicken though, that was really something.

    The contestants are definitely the best this season in terms of personalities. Used to be nearly 100% bores. But then you get people like Jamie who can't do anything, so who knows

    Alice is possibly the most annoying person there has ever been.
