About ‘The Great British Baking Show’
“The Great British Baking Show” — known as “The Great British Bakeoff in the U.K. — follows a group of amateur bakers from around the U.K. as they compete against each other in a series of challenges, attempting to impress judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith with their baking skills.
Hosts Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas sprinkle in bits of humor to keep the increasingly stressed home bakers from becoming too overwhelmed, but the true heart of the show is the sheer joy with which each of the contestants approaches each challenge. The genuine warmth and gratitude that they all feel for the opportunity to compete is an absolute delight, which makes the return of each new season a must-watch event.
This British television baking competition selects from amongst its competitors the best amateur baker. The series is credited with reinvigorating interest in baking throughout the UK, and many of its participants, including winners, have gone on to start a career based on baking.
Though this is the show’s 13th season, it is known as “Collection 10” on Netflix, as the first few seasons are no longer available to stream in the United States. However, in addition to the flagship show, the streaming service also carries holiday specials, a junior version of the show, and much more “Bakeoff” programming — even if a Pillsbury trademark won’t allow the show to use its proper name stateside.
