We Really Need To Talk About Candice On "Bake Off" This Year

She deserves to go all the way.

So there have been a lot of people on the internet expressing their love for Selasi and Val during Bake Off this season.

And of course, they absolutely deserve the love they get.

But the real gem of this series has been Candice.

And we need to talk about her an awful lot more.

1. She stands out not JUST because of her promise to wear different lipstick every episode that she's in.

2. I've checked, and she's stuck to her promise.

3. But she's so much more than just her lipstick. For one thing, she's just so honest about everything. It's bloody refreshing.

4. AND this moment looks so great as a GIF.

5. And so many of the best moments of Bake Off this year so far have literally been down to her.

6. She was also responsible for the goddamn best sexual innuendo Bake Off has ever had.

7. And like 10 seconds before that, this happened.

8. This exchange about Jaffa Cakes was ALSO one of the best exchanges this series so far.

9. Listen to the way that she threw her sponge.

PLEASE UNMUTE AND LISTEN TO THE SOUND.

I can't stop listening to the sound it makes. So gloopy.

10. And more seriously, she didn't have the best start on Bake Off, with her "mirror mirror" mirror cake.

Note: This is a joke, she didn't actually say mirror 5758576 times.

It got an absolutely scathing review from Paul.

Love Productions / BBC

11. And it's been a bit of a roller coaster. She's had some dramatic highs and lows.

Love Productions / BBC

But you can tell that she's giving each competition her ALL, and taking in all the constructive criticism.

12. So when she gets a great review, it feels so much more important than when others get good reviews.

Love Productions / BBC

13. And then there is the gingerbread house, which genuinely I think is one of the best things we've seen all series.

Love Productions / BBC

That carpet was magnificent.

She totally deserved Star Baker for it.

Love Productions / BBC

So much so, it's happened twice.

Love Productions / BBC

14. She has the potential to go far in the competition. Never stop being yourself, Candice. What a hero you are.
