Great British Bake Off: Tom becomes the first contestant to be ELIMINATED after his anti-gravity cake fails to wow the judges
Tom has become the first contestant to be eliminated from The Great British Bake Off 2021.
The software developer, 28, failed to impress the judges with his lacklustre showstopper during Cake Week, after it failed to meet the brief of ‘defying gravity.’
Despite an early exit, Tom was gracious in his departure from the show, admitting his bake ‘didn’t go to plan at all.’
Gone! Tom has become the first contestant to be eliminated from The Great British Bake Off 2021 after failing to impress with his showstopper
Despite hefty ambitions with a showstopper inspired by his love of classical music, Tom’s bake was criticised for failing to create an illusion of defying gravity.
He also struggled with a Signature Challenge which required him to bake mini rolls, with his little cakes lamented by Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith.
Tom shared his disappointment at being eliminated, adding: ‘I always have been hard on myself than I really should be but I definitely am proud of myself and that must mean quite a bit. I’m so gonna miss hanging out with [the bakers] everyday.’
George was stunned that he had survived for another week after his own Showstepper descended into disaster.
He said: I’m in shock I’m so pleased the judges have sene something in my baking and I’m here for another week.’
An equally surprised Amanda said: ‘I was absolutely thinking I was oging to go first, I’m really sad for Tom he’s such a gentleman.’
