Well, here we are at the final. And are we surprised at who is still in?

The papers are rife with rumours and hints this morning, so who will it be?

Ruby - the youngster but still unarguably talented

Kimberly - steadily high consistancy and not afraid to flavour

Frances - possibly the most creative baker ever in the series, but seemingly trouble with her "substance"

Let us know what you think.

i think that's a bit unfair on ruby, shes very young and i think genuinely un-confident in her abilities, shes also had the pressure of exams through this which can't of been easy but she has produced some amazing stuff

i wish she would stop bloody whining though
Ruby, because I fancy her :-)
Perhaps I'm just grouchy this morning, Ed - when I log in (having just logged out) I can now see the satnav poll, but I'm almost certain that this one popped up earlier when I first logged in. I'll go and sit in a corner and knit.

I'm not even sure if it's whining - she think she'll only be able to manage it by the skin of her teeth, and she does.

I like Kim, but she's been told consistently that he flavours are slightly wide of the mark.

Frances hasn't got a chance frankly.
Fluffster, you're more charitable than me, she must have known when filming would be going on :)
You MAY be surprised Ed, Frances is very creative in design and I read that the final showstopper is a Wedding cake, can't wait to see what decoration she comes up with.
'Which one has the best buns?'
Now that would be a poll......
lol, give her a break, shes only 21 :-)
I think you're being unfair to Ruby. It is not filmed 'as live' I suspect that the shots of Ruby "pouting & crying" (don't remember her crying any more than the others) are cut in in the editing suite.
I see no favouritism on the show (I don't follow the media, though)
:-)

How do you mean popped up? You're probably not grouchy, it may be a real issue Anneasquith had a similar issue, but never helped me resolve it: http://www.theanswerbank.co.uk/AB-Editors-Blog/Question1270858.html does this sound like what you're being asked to do?

"You MAY be surprised Ed, Frances is very creative in design and I read that the final showstopper is a Wedding cake, can't wait to see what decoration she comes up with."

Last year the Scottish chap, my favourite, failed because he over-reached on his showstopper. I hope this doesn't happen to Frances, and she gives them all a run for their money!
Sounds like you are very interested in baking Ed - is it tea and cakes all round at yours later? ;)
Question Author
Something like that, yes! I prefer bread really though.
Ed, I can't say what I saw because it's not there any more - but I only clicked on this thread (to have a moan) BECAUSE I'd seen the poll about GBBO. It's gone now though, just logged out and in again and the satnav poll is on the first page.

I don't get any other poll requests other than when I log in to AB (e.g. nothing comes on email, I'm not sure what AA meant in her OP).
Gosh Ed, you are not breadmaker Paul Hollywood incognito, are you? (chuckle!) That explains why you like Ruby LOL ;)
I think Ruby is a very good cook. Unfortunately her incessant whingeing has got on my tits, but nevertheless she remains a great cook. I don't believe she is that low in confidence personally and her modesty strikes me as false rather than genuine - hence the getting fed up of her.

But then I'm not known for my sympathetic disposition ;o)
Not everyone being mean to Ruby Ed, I'm not being mean to her.
I really can't see how Ruby could possibly win.... She was awful last week.
Question Author
Thanks for letting me know Boxtops :)

"Gosh Ed, you are not breadmaker Paul Hollywood incognito, are you?"

No, he uses far too much salt. Have you seen his recipes? He wanted to put 6 grams of salt into a normal sized loaf - a madman! Remember that when he says something doesn't taste nice :)

Mary Berry on the other hand can do no wrong - I'd split a bottle of gin with her. Or one each I suppose.

"I really can't see how Ruby could possibly win.... She was awful last week."

I must say, I felt last week was a bit... er... rigged! She should have come last for the brain.
