The Pencil Behind Richard's Ear Should Be Your Favourite Contestant On "The Great British Bake Off"
Important: This article notes every time he's worn his pencil in this series so far.
Now that Norman is no longer on Bake Off, who should you root for to win this series?
It still hurts Norman, it still hurts.
Should you back Martha? Or Kate? Or Nancy?
Good luck to them all...but nah.
Nope. You SHOULD be supporting this pencil.
Richard always has this pencil behind his ear. It debuted halfway through the first episode.
This is every day Richard has worn the pencil so far.
TL;DR: He likes blue pencils.
Why does he wear it? He's a B-U-I-L-D-E-R.
BUT THE PENCIL HAS A PURPOSE. Remember the pie challenge? He was wearing it that day.
Nancy was having difficulty tracing paper with her existing terrible pencil while making her pie.
Think what would have happened without the pencil.
Probably this all over again.
Also, when Richard isn't wearing his pencil, for some reason you don't actually recognise Richard.
He also owns many many pencils.
And here is a photo of Richard at a pencil museum, which was taken by his wife ten years ago.
