First Baker eliminated in socially-distanced series ‘Great British Bake Off 2020’


There’s no doubt in the fact that 2020 has been a terrible year, however, the one thing this pandemic was unable to ruin is The Great British Bake Off. Viewers were extremely excited about its new release and the new series did kick off on September 22, on Channel 4.

However, due to an announcement by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the premiere began 15 minutes later than it was originally scheduled.

But who wouldn’t wait for something like this? And it wouldn’t be wrong to say that the wait was worth it. Twelve contestants were seen joining in the Bake Off tent by judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood along with host Noel Fielding and his new sidekick, Little Britain’s Matt Lucas.

It was going well for the eleven contestants but unfortunately, the show wasn’t that good for Loriea as she had to leave the tent and thus became the first contestant to do so.

The contestants were tasked with making Battenberg cakes using marzipan as their first Bake Off Signature challenge of the series began.

Lorie had decided to flavor hers with bubblegum and made a bold choice in the making. However, it turned out to be “bone dry”, according to judge Paul. Next, the bakers were asked to make six miniature pineapple upside-down cakes, which was a technical challenge, set by Paul.

During this challenge, we did see the most dramatic moment happening in the series. It was Dave dropping nearly all of his bakes on the floor as Sura accidentally knocked into Dave while swatting a fly.

It was clear enough that Sura was extremely apologetic to poor Dave for doing this deed. However, she didn’t appear to suffer bad karma as Sura ended up coming first in this challenge.

Next was the Showstopper Challenge wherein the bakers were required to make 3D cake busts of their favorite celebrities and this was certainly fun and intriguing to watch.
