Day 300/365: Friday’s Unscientific Poll: The Great British Bake Off final [20181027|20:43]

Yes, yes, I know it’s Saturday, but yesterday I was too wrung out to make a poll. The bloke and I had about enough energy to watch Extra Slice and HIGNFY and then we crashed.

So! The final! Once again, I shall put all behind cuts.

But now, to predict the winner.

Poll #2086406 GBBO: The winner?

Who will wear the crown?


Well, I am, for one. However, I’m finding it more difficult to predict a winner than I did three weeks ago. I feel that Rahul cruised his way through up until the point where he actually had to learn something. I’m not convinced he’s taken that on board sufficiently well to guarantee winning any more. Ruby and Kim-Joy, OTOH, are still evolving and developing. They’re hitting the limits of their ability to deal with stress, but not counting on natural talent to obscure their weaknesses (unlike Rahul, who is still pretty messy). I’m by no means as certain of my choice this time. Roll on, next Tuesday!

Oh dear, Pencil, how? The poll got exactly two responses and one of them was from me.

It's just you and me then...so I say Ruby. Care to state your decision?

I had picked Ruby as well, and I'm disappointed. I thought the final showstopper idea was pretty awful this year, I have to say. Can we go back to beautiful cakes next time, please?

I’m disappointed. I liked Rahul right up until the episode where Manon went home. It should have been him, by fairness—all three of his bakes were worse than hers, and typically that knocks a person out. I feel they let him skate through on his work from previous weeks, and that’s just not fair.

I rooted for Kim-Joy at the end.

On the other hand, I didn’t get to taste any of it, so maybe his flavors really were that much better, who knows.
