Steven by far the one to beat, I don't think he should have got star baker week 2 as he wasn't the most consistent baker, so pleased Julia won it week 3, I like that she tries weird flavours. though that snail :lol: :lol:

Sadly some people have nothing better to do than complain about nothing.....

Yup Steven is the one to beat, but there are some others that are just as good. I'd like to see Steven and Yan in the final.

Stacey seems to be improving week on week but probably has a 'blunder week' in her tbh.
Steven, Sophie and .. Yan probably the most consistent bakers?
My ideal final three would be Yan, Julia and Stacey though, Liam fourth.

I have a soft spot for Liam but I do think his desire to create things that are quite out there will be his downfall.

Steven just seems to be getting worse!

Right guy went this week (James).

Yan is probably the only one so far that I don't really like. Steven still seems quite humble considering the amount of praise he got the first few weeks and I like that.

Sad to see James go but it was his time.

I'm not on board with the Steven backlash, I think he's been fine and still producing great showstoppers!

I don't find Stacey very likeable though, she's a bit rude and cocky at times.

It was definitely James's week to go.

You shut your mouth, Stacey is QUEEN! :lol:

No good creating great looking showstoppers if they taste like shite!

Can't believe Liam went before Stacey and Kate! Kate has nine lives! Stacey is a twat.

Stacey is the best contestant across all eight series!

LOL at Wayne thinking she robbed Liam of a place when she just won star baker... WITHOUT AN OVEN DOOR!

Liam is gone too soon and I'm gutted and i thought he was in the final. Kate is the luckiest mofo the tent has ever seen. BUT... it's never been judged on a cumulative basis until the very end. I believe they are judging fairly based on baking, and that they think Liam did the worst this week. That's... the rules.

Bitch, please. She's atrocious, looks likes she's been terminally diagnosed at each judging, overly competitive and basic af. Thank god she's gone. :lol:

Kate is one of the most unworthy final 3 in years but is very likeable even if her rainbow could've been made by a 5 year old.

Sophie ftw- so calm, cool and really likeable! She's hardly put a foot wrong all series

Agreed about Kate - how she’s made it is beyond me.

Aww poor Stacey, she was one of my favourites from the beginning, one of the more entertaining characters this years anyway, even if she'd never quite nailed anything. I really hoped they would judge the episode on the task and not previous performance. I don't really care who wins now so long as it's one of the two girls, my favourites (Stacey, Julia and Yan have all gone)

Glad Stacey didn't make the final, she was so overwrought with competitiveness and used to love sticking her nose into other people's bakes.

Steven to win, although I wish Julia or Yan had made the final instead of Kate (who is very likeable but VERY lucky).

Yan! <3 I really grew to like Yan, she was awesome - I loved her not following recipes properly and instead applying science. :lol:

Had a true scare when Steven's overly ambitious show stopper started to melt away and the layers began to crack and collapse. Glad he got through! FTW
Kate is super cute and has more lives than a cat. Shouldn't be in the final to be quite honest, but I like her.
Shame Liam screwed up big time with the undercooked pie, he got better and better and was very likeable.
Yan was great and I rooted for her! Great character, should have moved on just for the sake of her persona.
Can't complain that they sent Stacey packing. She was very irritating most of the times. Bye!

Team Steven! (What a goof... :lol: :lol: )

I don't get why Liam was eliminated when he messed up his show stopper yet Steven completely messed his up and didn't.

Prue announced the winner on Twitter earlier because she's in Asia and got confused with time differences :lol:

I don't know who wins though but it's a tough one to call based on their performances so far tonight! I want Steven to I think, even though I also really like Kate.

Well Steven clearly hasn't won it after his showstopper.
