"The Great British Bake Off" Has A Celebrity Edition, And These 27 Moments Prove It's The Absolute Best
"Started making it. Had a breakdown. Bon appétit."
Out of everything the British have contributed to pop culture — Sherlock Holmes, the Beatles, the opportunity for the rest of the world to unite for a brief moment to acknowledge that the beans on toast thing is a little weird — The Great British Bake Off* may be one of my favorites.
Like any good franchise, it has generated spinoffs, including The Great Celebrity Bake Off, wherein famous people who are excellent at other things (acting, comedy, and athletics, to name a few) publicly fail at baking for charity. It is perfect.
Here's a carefully curated selection of 27 Celebrity Bake Off moments that embody what it means to be chaotic good.
Tragically, the celebrity edition of Bake Off can't be found on American Netflix (with the exception of the episode featuring the cast of Derry Girls, which can be found in Season 3 of the Holidays edition). But fear not! There are many, many, many YouTube clips out there.
