The Great Australian Bake Off – The Grand Finalists Are Known
Next Tuesday is the final episode of The Great Australian Bake Off and you get the feeling there will be little fanfare about the winner.
Bake Off was a good series which ticked a lot of boxes. Good contestants and cast, great cooking and with a nice “there are no villains” vibe.
However because of the time slot after 8.30pm on a Tuesday night it just has not been able to find its audience. It would have been perfect in the 6.30pm time slot on Sunday night as it was perfect family viewing.
It is kind of sad that after the great casting of Dan Lepard and Kerry Vincent that they were not able to find a wider audience and because of this that there might not be a second season. Last night it only pulled 622,000.
It was the semi final with Nancy, Maria, Monique and Jonathan had to cook a gluten free tart, croissants and jam and a strudel.
In the end Monique was eliminated and Maria was named star baker. Next Tuesday Maria, Jonathan and Nancy will be battling it out to be the winner of the inaugural season of The Great Australian Bake Off.
