Is anyone else already obsessed with the new season of Bake Off, or is it just us? The Cake Angels team and I have literally been counting down the days to launch night where our favorite judges reappear on our screen with a whole new line-up of fresh-faced contestants, eager to claim the Bake Off crown. And let's face it... the first ep's drama did not let us down! From that tash (FAN-GIRLING YOU TERRY!) to mourning the loss of Noel's luscious locks, GBBO has once again captured the nations' attention, and we've seen some hilarious reactions from you guys on social media. Here are a few of our fave moments and memes from Tuesday night...
BAE of the Week
That's right. We are absolutely loving the retired air steward whose edgy style and subjective selfie-biscuit took the internet by storm. Maybe it was Terry's hipster traits that played a role in his very artsy and cultured-looking selfie biscuit that reminded everyone else of a certain (and slightly terrifying) painting belonging to Phoebe Buffay from Friends. Thanks for pointing this one out to us Boohoo, there's defo some Gladys vibes.
Fans were also quick to tweet that the bake was reminiscent of the Shrieking book in Harry Potter...
and that moment in The Office.
While Terry's selfie biscuit looked more like that night-out photo we really wish we hadn't been tagged in, we couldn't help but cheer him on as Paul offered his compliments (YES, Terry!)
That's the wrong kind of selfie, Dan
The contestants found the selfie challenge a great opportunity to share a little about themselves but some may have, erm, shared too much (we can't un-see it now)! Turns out Paul Hollywood has a very innocent mind compared to the rest of the tent and the whole of Twitter who thought Dan's baby looked more phallic than "prawn"-like.
And we clearly wouldn't want it any other way...
Noel, is that you?
Lastly, we have to mention it... Noel's *missing* hair! If GBBO starting the show with biscuit week wasn't breaking traditions enough, Noel's dramatic hair transformation had us all wailing "WHERE HAVE THE LUSCIOUS LOCKS GONE?" And obviously, as massive Fielding fans, Cake Angels were one of the first to join the serious, bake-off business of finding the quirky presenter's trademark hair...
While others suffered from Noel's Goth hair withdrawal symptoms and tried to remember happier times.
What a week. I guess all we can do now is wait for the next Bake Off and the infamous Cake Week. Tear open a packet of crisps (cough cough Karen) and join our #Outbakes campaign by getting creative with our fave biscuit recipe!
We'll see you back here, on Wednesday, for our next Reactions blog!
Calling all BAE-kers, it's time to join the Archangel revolution.
