I don't know about you, but this might be the purest moment I have ever seen on Bake Off in my entire life.
No, actually scratch that. I think this might be the purest moment I have ever seen on Bake Off.
Rahul has become a firm favourite for me and we are only in week three of the competition. I mean, to be quite honest, he became a favourite the moment we saw him Skype his parents in the first ten minutes of episode one.
There are many reasons to love him. For example, he has such a lovely sense of humour.
He supports the other bakers when they need a hand.
You could also hear him talk for hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours.
And, I don't know, there feels something deeply relatable about the way he describes himself.
But it's also clear that Rahul lacks self-confidence, and always brings himself down.
He constantly mentions faults that aren't even problems in the first place.
He once winced as his bake was being judged by Paul and Prue, just before it got a good review (of course it did).
This is also how he started a challenge.
It's something that a lot of people have picked up on.
Nearly every time his bake is judged the conversation between him and the judges is something like this.
But he has nothing to apologise for. Nothing. His bakes so far have been amongst some of the best.
In last night's episode, he opened up about why he brings himself down.
This was just after Noel gave Rahul a pep talk to remind him how just damn great he is.
Rahul: we all think you are great.
You have nothing to apologise for.
