Hurrah!

Obligatory balls-up.

MODS - can you add this link in place of the "Bake-Off 2019" in the header, please?

They're all babies! There's one who's 56 and one who's 40 and the rest are all in their 20s and 30s. Where's the baking experience?

They've probably all been watching since they were tinies, and have bankrupted their families with excessive demands for ground almonds.

Great title, Tommy.

My mum taught me to bake complicated and difficult things when I was fairly young so quite a bit of experience by the time I was in my 20s.

Phil FTW

My irrational dislike goes to Steph

Is Alice the one The Silver Fox fancies and is that why she gets her own big photo?

There was a sixteen-year-old in French bake off last year.

I am annoyed that half-baked-hipster Dan is a Yorkshire lad and that the geography teacher is pretty.

We are not the only ones to notice and comment.

Excellently unreasonably annoyances, Tommy.

Cordelia - 27 Aug 2019 08:57:36 (#11 of 246)

It's tonight! Hurrah!

I love the idea of tonight's showstopper as well.

Tenesmus - 27 Aug 2019 09:34:34 (#12 of 246)

I am waiting until tonight's formal introductions so my dislike can be entirely rational, oh yes.

yumyum - 27 Aug 2019 11:29:54 (#13 of 246)

Ta for heads up.

mazylou - 27 Aug 2019 11:49:49 (#14 of 246)

Also, Extra Slice on Friday if you like that kind of thing.

TommyDGNR8 - 27 Aug 2019 12:05:59 (#15 of 246)

The enormity of this has just hit me.

Bake-off + Low-carb diet = conflict!

This might not be easy viewing this year.

Interesting, Mazy, and not at all surprising. I wouldn't mind trying the peanut butter and chocolate cake!

Macpaddy - 27 Aug 2019 15:33:58 (#18 of 246)

Is Dan the one with the silly man-bun? If so, I hope he loses.

Cordelia - 27 Aug 2019 20:15:40 (#19 of 246)

OK. No one’s really annoying me yet. Though Man-Bun is trying hard. Also, changing his recipe on the first ever bake of the show. FFS.

goldfinch - 27 Aug 2019 20:24:22 (#20 of 246)

I haven't really been paying attention as I was googling foldable bread proofing machines and have found the one I want. I didn't even know they were a thing until yesterday and thanks to Cords.
