Great British Bake Off 2019 Betting

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.

What is the Great British Bake Off?

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 interest in this baking competition is said to have reinvigorated interest in baking in Britain, leaving viewers drooling over the scores of delicious bakes each week. Naturally, Great British Bake Off betting has become the icing on the cake for this competition, similar to the growth in betting on other popular television series, like X Factor betting.
