The Great Australian Bake Off – Promo – Get A Glimpse Of The Contestants

This is the first promo of new series The Great Australian Bake Off which will be shown on NINE this year. We also get a quick glimpse at some of the contestants.

The show which is based on the UK version of the show is a cooking competition which as the name suggests is based on baking.

Anna Gare and Shane Jacobson are the hosts and the judges are Dan Lepard and Kerry Vincent.

Will you be watching it?

They totally stole their advertisement idea from MasterChef.

The thought of George, Gary and Matt prancing around in Croquembouche land still gives me nightmares.

Golo – there are some similarities

How many new shows aren’t related to cooking or renovating?
What is the breaking point?
Channel Nine relentlessly goes for the boofhead quotient – this time with Jacobson. I won’t be viewing.

I won’t watch. Ch 9 cater only to bogans and yes with Shane Jacobson it’s been dumbed down for boofheads and yobbos.

I’ll give it a go, the original British version is really good and quite massive over there. And I liked Anna Gare on JMC.

Doubt it could better the squirrel giant balls incident in the British one. Plus…too many bogans.

You’re so right Golo, so much like the Croquembouche MC ad.
Not sure about it, did a quick google and it has some form. Anna, yeah, maybe, she is fun. Dan Lepard really knows his baking so could be awesome. Will watch some and see.
But pleeeeese something intelligent, not just a ripoff.

Stephanie – I am intrigued what is the squirrel balls incident?

On the finale of the British one there was a random shot of a squirrel with huge bollocks that everyone had a laugh at. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSx4d075tQM

There’s also a great little wrap up of The Great British Bake Off on Charlie Brooker’s 2011 Wipe which starts at 52:59 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95JBF7OdT10
