Everyone just pretending Jürgen goes on to win GBBO anyway

With the final episode of The Great British Bake Off looming, viewers are confident that Jürgen will be crowned champion of the series, in their minds anyway.

German contestant and quietly efficient baker Jürgen was dismissed at the semi-final stage yesterday, despite constructing a stunning showstopper and seeing another contestant completely mess up their technical challenge.

With the semi-final having aired last night, many viewers are reported to be simply just pretending that the Winnie the Pooh impressionist from Brighton is still in the competition.

“Last night’s episode was a really interesting one, which saw the bakers face some tough patisserie-style tasks,” Eleanor Gay, a Bake Off addict from Canterbury, told us.

“Each baker got a handshake from Paul Hollywood apart from Jürgen; presumably as Paul had some kind of mini-stroke during filming.

“Undeterred, and with his trademark precision, Jürgen went on to create a Japanese show-stopper that perfectly balanced the flavours of Matcha and raspberry.”

She added, “So going into the final next week and based on everything we saw him create, I’m pretty sure that Jürgen will be crowned champion.

“Well, in my head anyway.”

Jürgen was unavailable for comment as he was too busy being the perfect baker, husband and father, and inspiration to the Internet, but a source close to the now-famous baker told us, “Jürgen is just happy to have taken part in the series and wishes all the finalists the best of luck, and is looking forward to congratulating Giuseppe on winning the final next week.”
