THE GREAT BRITISH BAKE OFF viewers were left devastated on Tuesday night after seeing Rochica exit the competition after the dreaded Bread Week.
Channel 4 viewers tuned in for The Great British Bake Off’s Bread Week on Tuesday night. Fans saw the contestant take on a range of bread themed cooking challenges in a bid to impress judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood. Sadly, Rochica struggled with several tasks in the episode and as a result, was booted out of the competition. However, fans of the show were “gutted” to see her go, with some taking to Twitter to suggest someone else should have left in her place.
Several viewers were unhappy with the decision Prue and Paul made, insisting Rochica deserved another chance.
@JaneScanlan7 fumed: “No! That’s a terrible decision. Rochica should have stayed at least another week. Very unhappy with the judges choice this week. #GBBO.”
“Gutted for Roshica… sad to see her go… what a nice lady #gbbo,” @JacquiS93043890 agreed.
“Oh no the wrong person went #GBBO,” @zakskaz90 said.
“Noooooo! Not @Rochica_ ! She seems lovely! #GBBO,” @InspectorMorose added.
Meanwhile, some suggested Maggie should have been the contestant to leave instead.
“Oh no, I liked Rochica so much! She deserved to go further, Maggie not so much… #GBBO,” @claire_michelle commented.
“Why eliminate Rochica instead of Maggie? She has so much more potential. All Maggie offers is a middle-classed snobbiness #bakeoff #gbbo,” @Alexw_1993 raged.
Bake Off presenter Matt Lucas announced the devastating news that Rochica would be leaving the show.
He explained, giving the bad news is not an easy task: “It gets harder and harder each week because we’re all becoming friends.
“We’re all bonding and we don’t want to lose anyone,” Matt said.
“But, I’m afraid we are going to be losing somebody and that person is… Rochica.”
Reflecting on her time in the competition, Rochica said: “It’s come to an end, but I have really enjoyed it.”
She also noted how “proud” she was to have made it so far in the competition.
Meanwhile, it was Giuseppe who was crowned the Star Baker of the week, having impressed the judges with his bread.
The Italian also bagged the first Hollywood Handshake of the series with a breakfast focaccia.
He also made a good impression with his Showstopper and was named the winner of the technical challenge where he baked a ciabatta.
