    This Week's "Showstopper" Bake Off Was One Of The Most Nervewracking Television Moments This Year

    Why did they leave these bakes alone for two hours? WHY?

    In this week's Bake Off Showstopper challenge the bakers had to make a Religieuse a L'ancienne, a huge chocolate éclair tower, shaped like a nun.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    The bakers had practiced baking the nun towers at home, and they said that they hated this challenge.

    But despite there being a few mistakes and errors.

    Like these cream fillings from Paul. Poor Paul.

    The Religieuse a L'anciennes were coming together.

    And with their bakes standing at the end, you assumed that all the drama was over. Then Mel warned that the bakers now had a "two hour lunch."

    Why two hours? The éclairs were to be tested to see if they could stand, as a Religieuse a L'ancienne is usually taken to a party and eaten hours after it is baked.

    Two hour lunch? Sure. This one will last.

    But a two hour lunch break is a long time.

    Oh my god.

    OH MY GOD.

    These are the saddest éclairs in the world.

    Now it is like Pisa.

    This éclair tower was perfect two hours ago.

    Now it is dead. Separated in two.

    What the hell is actually happening?

    Who knew that so much sadness, so much hurt, so much pain... could be caused by éclairs?

    NEVER HAVE A TWO HOUR LUNCH. Just eat at your desk like everyone else.
