16 Reasons You Should Be Watching The Great British Bake Off on Netflix

By  | 


I am not being dramatic when I say that the Great British Bake Off is the best thing to happen to reality television. If you’re looking for a show that has competition, friendship, humor, charming British people, delicious baked goods and more food puns than you can imagine — then look no further. The Great British Bake Off has all of this and so much more.

Unlike most food competitions, the tone of this show is relaxing and overwhelmingly positive. In times of need, the bakers help one another — offering advice or a spare set of hands. Plus, they all seem genuinely sad when their fellow competitors are voted off. Seriously, this show will leave you with a very real case of the warm fuzzies.

Side note, there has been some recent controversy about the future of GBBO. The show originated on the BBC but is now being relocated to Channel 4 to the shock of die-hard fans everywhere. In loyalty to the BBC, Judge Mary Berry and hosts Mel Giedroc and Sue Perkins have decided they will be leaving the show. However, this doesn’t change the fact that every episode until now is complete perfection and still worth watching. Aside from my own opinions regarding this absolute tragedy, it will be interesting see how the show carries on without the three (MOST IMPORTANT) cast members. But that’s a topic for another day. So while I cannot vouch for future seasons, here are 16 reasons why you should be watching GBBO — all seven seasons.
