After Jurgen’s show was axed, Channel 4’s Bake Off received 115 Ofcom complaints.
Angry viewers complained to Ofcom after Jurgen was booted from Channel 4’s The Great British Bake Off, despite earning Star Baker three times.
After participant Jurgen was thrown off the show, the Great British Bake Off received 115 Ofcom complaints.
Jurgen was eliminated from the Channel 4 baking show in the semi-finals of the competition – which aired on Tuesday – resulting in over 100 Ofcom complaints from viewers (November 16).
Some supporters were so angry with the judges’ decision last week that they threatened to boycott the final.
The complaints to the media regulator were filed on the Tuesday before the semi-final, and they were against Jurgen’s treatment and elimination on the show.
After nine weeks in the tent, the German baker, 56, was ejected, but his sweet demeanor and amazing baking talents made him a fan favorite on the show.
For his fantastic creations, he even won Star Baker three times on the show, but it wasn’t enough.
The semi-final was patisserie week, and Jurgen’s’murder at the opera’ slices won Prue over right away, calling them “sensational.”
Paul, on the other hand, was less than impressed, admitting that he didn’t “enjoy it” because all he could taste was coffee.
Paul dished out three ‘Hollywood Handshakes’ to Giuseppe, Crystelle, and Chigs at one point during the performance, but physicist Jurgen was unfortunately left out, which may have enraged spectators.
Jurgen even won the technical challenge with his sable Breton tart, coming in first place.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to get him into the final, as Crystelle, Chigs, and Giuseppe advanced.
On social media, many supporters were outraged at Jurgen’s elimination, with many Twitter users claiming he didn’t deserve to be eliminated.
“What an awful decision (hashtag)GBBO,” one enraged fan remarked.
“No, I’m sorry, I’m so unhappy about Jurgen not being in the final,” another said. He’s been consistently outstanding and deserving of his spot.
“Bake off is generally soothing, cozy, and warm, but right now I’m irritated.”
“I’m boycotting the final what a farce it is,” one third said, indicating their intention to stop watching the show.
“No!!” said a fourth. “Not Jürgen!” exclaims the narrator. This is a breaking news story that is being updated all the time.
