mmmm no, I don't like the format of Big Time Bake. The thing kinda hurts to see. But we never got a chance to connect with the bakers, so I also kinda don't care.
Yeah, I'm not sure whether I'll bother with the next season (if there is one). I only started watching because the first episode featured a local chef (Chef Maeve) that I've actually met and quite like. The thing you spoiler-fonted also bothers me, plus the format just seems unnecessarily stressful, which is really not what I'm here for in a baking show. (I get irritated even on GBBO when I hear the stressy violins as time is getting down to the wire). I mostly asked not because I need someone to discuss it with, but because my DVR cut off the last minute of the season finale and I needed to find out who won (without having to watch the whole episode again On Demand - not without my FF!), but thankfully someone on FB was able to handle my query.
