Great British Bake Off: Rowan knocks out after failing to impress on bread week


Rowan is the third candidate to be eliminated from The Great British Bake Off 2020.

After the music teacher scratched through last week – to the contempt of many fans – he said goodbye to the tent after failing to impress with his "soft and wrinkled" rainbow bagels, "sand-like" soda breads and a "mild" show stopper.

Rowan was always friendly as he said goodbye to the remaining bakers and added, "I feel very satisfied, I really had a wonderful time, it's exhausting but very rewarding."

Rowan struggled to win Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood over a difficult bread week and again struggled to realize his overzealous idea in the time allotted.

Prue added, "Rowan was such a character and I'm sorry to see him leave because he's so ambitious, resourceful and put so much thought into his baking."

Thinking about his time on Bake Off, Rowan told Radio Times, “I started Bread Week pretty confidently, I thought it would be all right.

“But the soda breads just didn't cut it all the way. Well the technique started, they were as perfect as they could be, but when I had to put them in the boiling water, everything went wrong from then on. & # 39;

He added, “I usually only bake bread for a special occasion, I would say it's not my baking strength. But I didn't mind leaving as someone has to leave every week, that's the nature of the show. & # 39;

Although the judges were praised for a well-presented bread board during the show stop, they agreed that it tasted "boring" and needed more filling.

Rowan was also the last to arrive during the tech after trying to make the rainbow bagels needed.

After scraping through last week, fans weren't surprised Rowan left the show, though many still went to Twitter to admit they'd miss his lovable and always upbeat manner.

One wrote: & # 39; Except! Loved Rowan "while another fan wrote," I'm sad for Rowan, but tonight it was really the right decision. "

One fan also wrote: & # 39; Think Rowan has at least 3 weeks too much time! Cya! & # 39;

"Dear Rowan, it was time!" One fan shared while one added, “It's so sad to see Rowan leave, but he took the news with a champion! He is an absolute delight! & # 39;

Even as he struggled through the baking challenges, Rowan managed to tickle the audience after Matt Lucas set the stage for one of the series' most famous allusions.

Matt joked about the meat content in his soda bread and said, "Do you have a big sausage?" although Matt quickly hit back, "I don't want to comment."

Elsewhere in Bread Week, Hermione received a handshake from Paul Hollywood after receiving praise for her "very special" soda sandwiches and saying she could "go home now."

But it was Marc E who was awarded Star Baker after speaking openly about how he turned to Buddhism after a leg amputation.

As always, Marc's road to baking success was not without a few hiccups as he was left laughing hysterically after a bottle of buttermilk exploded on his face and Noel Fielding said, "No, I'm fine, me." I will continue. Yuck. & # 39;

Next week, the remaining bakers face more sweet baking challenges as Chocolate Week returns to the tent.

The Great British Bake Off will resume on Channel 4 next Tuesday at 8 p.m.
