8:58pm 

8:57pm Aww Michael. Not only did you have to leave but Paul is going to visit you in Cyprus probably against your will.

8:56pm YES TOM.

8:55pm Kate, Tom, or Andrew… who will the star baker be? The tension is palpable

8:54pm Hahaha (same).

8:51pm Will someone explain what is happening here?

8:35pm Val wins the technical but her Dampfnudle is “still a million miles away” according to Paul.

8:32pm Aaahhh was that Rav tearing up?! I am now crying.

8:30pm Selasi: “It’s like that kinda burn that you like.” Legend.

8:25pm I second this. 

8:23pm Oh Selasi you are TOO MUCH

8:22pm Whatever a Dampfnudel is, it is fun to say.

8:20pm Would you just LOOK at the joy this man can inspire in people. Look at it.
