Next week is the Finals of Season 3 of The Great Canadian Baking Show! We'll see who wins on Wednesday!
In other exciting news, CBC has announced a new special: The Great Canadian Holiday Baking Show! It'll air on Wednesday, November 13 at 8:00pm and brings back four bakers from Seasons 1 & 2. The four bakers are Jame, Vandana, Megan, and (my bb!) Timothy!
Who else has been watching GCBS? What do you think of the new hosts? Who do you want to win? After the wonkiness with this season's of GBBO being super hard on the bakers and exploiting their emotions, I'm happy GCBS is here.
