Posted on

This year's final of The Great British Bake Off was set to be an unpredictable and highly anticipated event.

1) Get mobile. 2) Open calendar. 3) Go to Wed 7 Oct. 4) Write "BAKE OFF FINAL AT 8PM ON BBC ONE!" 5) Cry tears of joy (and sadness) 🎉😭 #GBBO

So excited about the bake off final tomorrow I am trying to get references to cakes into my lessons 😁

And as the day of the final arrived, people started getting pretty excited.

Girl: Come over later Me: I can't tonight Girl: My parents won't be in Me: Yeah but #GBBOFinal tho

The occasion was perfectly summed up for any confused Americans.

For any confused Americans, the Great British Bake Off final is like the Superbowl except it's important.

Then, showtime!

Viewers had their favourite contestants.

I have tweets prepared for when the winner of the Bake Off is announced

tamal may not win the bake off but he will always be able to win my heart

And became massive fans of Nadiya and Tamal's kitchen friendship.

Has the BBC signed up Nadiya and Tamal for a joint TV venture yet? Just making biscuits and amiably bickering. Ratings gold. #gbbo

TAMAL AND NADIYA'S FRIENDSHIP IS THE GREATEST THING CREATED THROUGHOUT THE BAKE OFF BETTER THAN ANY OF THE CAKES

Hardcore fans tuned into the action.

Disgusted at all these glory-hunting Bake-Off fans. Where were you on those wet Wednesday nights in September, during gluten-free week?

There were strong opinions on the bakes.

That's not baking. That's fruit jenga #gbbo #GBBOFinal

There was heartbreak.

The moment of national heartbreak when Tamal reveals he can't use his Creme Pat because it hasn't set #GBBO

The usual innuendo.

Awful puns.

And giant bowls of marshmallows.

Ok nadiya's got a comedically large bowl of marshmallows she can't not win

And the winner was announced.

And a whole nation rejoiced in Nadiya's victory.

NADIYA HAS GOT THE WHOLE COUNTRY IN TEARS RIGHT NOW #GBBOFinal

Nadiya is easily the most universally loved reality television contestant of all time. What a woman. CRYING MY EYES OUT. #GBBO

THIS IS A BAKING SHOW A SHOW ABOUT BAKING I LOVE HOW PASSIONATE THIS COUNTRY GETS ABOUT THE BAKE OFF

Comparisons were made to the London Olympics opening ceremony.

That was the nicest and quietly loveliest thing since the London Olympics Opening Ceremony. Britain is brilliant. #gbbo

An entire country was united in tears of joy.

"I'm never going to put boundaries on myself. Ever again." I'm crying here. This woman gets the importance of cake. #gbbo

I am like a wedding cake right now: IN TEARS. #GBBO

Nadiya forever!

Well, somebody had to do it. And I'm kind of distracted today on a/c of #BBCNSSA @chiggi @KathViner @BegumNadiya
