How GBBO's Prue Leith Really Feels About Paul Hollywood

The judges on "Great British Bake Off" are quite the dynamic duo. There's Prue Leith, famous for her colorful clothing, matching jewelry and eyeglasses, and constructive but mostly kind, criticism. On the other hand, we have Paul Hollywood with his piercing blue eyes, quiet demeanor, and sometimes seemingly tough criticism. He has also become famous for his Hollywood Handshake, a gesture extended when contestants do especially well. It's become such an iconic gesture on the show that there's even an entire website dedicated to detailing each handshake from each season.

‘The Great British Baking Show’: Prue Leith Thinks this Week’s Technical Challenge is the Hardest in Bake Off History

“Pastry Week” is always a doozy on The Great British Baking Show and this year’s installment was no exception. The seven remaining bakers — Jürgen, Giuseppe, Amanda, Chigs, Lizzie, George, and Crystelle — were asked to bake “Chouxnuts” and layered pies, but nothing came close to the horror of the Baklava Technical Challenge. For the first time in the tent’s history, the judges asked the bakers to make the dreaded filo dough for the technical. Not only that, but they had to nail an intricate design atop their final bake. It was such a wild ask that even Prue Leith commented to Paul Hollywood that it must be the most difficult technical in the show’s history. But was it?

There was a Technical Challenge that forced the bakers to make unnecessary tuiles, a Showstopper that combined a murderers’ row of challenges, and a real snarky energy coming from Paul and Prue. On the one hand, “Desserts Week” marks the point where the competition heats up and starts to get exciting. On the other, I’m with Giuseppe and think 90 minutes for a toffee pudding challenge is certifiably insane.
