Why I hate the Great British Bake Off
Share This Article:
There, I said it. I don’t like The Great British Bake Off. Whilst over 11 million of you were glued to your TV screens on Wednesday night ogling over sugar and Mary Berry, I wasn’t. I took myself off somewhere quiet to reflect on the madness that is literally a group of strangers baking in a massive tent. To put it simply, I just don’t get it. Why is such a large portion of the entire nation fixated by the concept of watching people bake? What is that makes the show such a success? It’s not that I don’t like it because it’s popular, before I get accused of trying to be all hipster. Firstly I don’t like Mel and Sue, individually or together. I’ve not met either of them (I’m sure they are both equally lovely) but if I were to bake then I’m pretty sure the last thing I would need is two annoyingly happy and bouncy people asking me questions as I went along. And please don’t touch my food, somebody has to eat that afterwards.
