I was not impressed by those showstoppers. They did not look impressive at all.
My mind kept going back to Nadiya's levitating soda pop can and how amazing that looked (I don't remember any other winner's final bake to be honest) and comparing that with those ones just made the whole thing even more disappointing.
I've no idea how and why they got rid of Hermine, who was such an instinctive baker and patissier, to keep Laura who was just a hit & miss (at best). Her output during the final just proved what a bad decision it was to keep her in the competition.
Peter won. I yawn.
