The Great British Bake Off 2018 began on Tuesday, August 28 with 12 contestants. The early betting favourites were 30-year-old research scientist Rahul Mandal, 29-year-old project manager Ruby Bhogal, and French 26-year-old Manon Lagreve, the youngest baker in the Bake Off tent.
Through Cake Week, Bread, Desserts, Spice, Pastry, and the first-ever GBBO Vegan Week, that trio excelled, all winning Star Baker prizes, Rahul twice! But then Manon was booted out, and it was Belgium-born Kim-Joy and 33-year-old Briony Williams who really upped their games to make it to the Semi-Finals.
French Patisserie was the Bake Off Semi-Final theme, Pastry Week Star Baker Briony exiting and Ruby going through with fellow dual Star Baker winners Rahul and Kim-Joy. On October 30, Rahul was crowned winner of the Great British Bake Off 2018.

The Great British Bake Off is a baking competition, where Britain’s top amateur bakers compete to be crowned Britain’s Star Baker. Their baking skills and techniques are put to the test each week, where they must bake a certain type of cake or pastry, or use a particular baking technique.
A panel of judges taste and critique the bakers efforts, then decide who will be eliminated each week. In every episode, contestants are faced with three challenges; a signature bake, technical challenge, and showstopper challenge. After baking, one contestant is named ‘Star Baker of the Week’ and another is eliminated. The fight to make it through each elimination is no piece of cake!

The Great British Bake Off has been bringing baking to the masses since 2010. It began on the BBC and moved to Channel 4 for Series 8 in 2017. It is often known simply as 'Bake Off' or 'GBBO', and is the brainchild of producer Anna Beattie
Beattie was inspired by classic English village fête baking competitions and American 'bake-offs' friends had described. It took her four years to sell the show to the BBC, and now on Channel 4 it attracts more than 10 million viewers for its showcase finale, and has won three BAFTAs.
