Wonderful fun but telegraphing the loser
14 September 2017 | by chezpatrickSee all my reviews

Quite a fun and entertaining show to watch with amateur bakers squaring off against each other in challenges that even a seasoned baker might contend with.

**The only reason it doesn't highest marks (down a full two points for this) is that it seem every episode the editing telegraphs who is going to lose just moments before it's announced because it's cut nearly the same way every time. Too bad, because that loses the suspense and surprise of it all. I almost want to close my eyes for those last few shots so I don't know who is being cut before they say it.**

Aside from that, it's a wonderful show that I learn from and inspires me to want to go out and try new things to add to my arsenal of baking sweet and savory treats.
