The Great British Bake Off annoyed some viewers who claimed Peter should be have been this week’s Star Baker – but some backed the judges’ decision.
During Tuesday (October 20) evening’s episode of the popular Channel 4 reality series, the remaining contestants took on the challenges of Pastry Week.
What happened on The Great British Bake Off with student Peter?
Peter, a 20-year-old student, did well in the first task and came first in the Technical Challenge, while he similarly received praise for his Showstopper.
For his Signature Bake, creating his own spin on the classic Cornish Pasty, Peter made kedgeree pasties shaped like fish. Judge Paul Hollywood said they looked “fantastic” but were somewhat dry. Prue agreed.
However, he won the Technical Challenge, in which they whipped up some raspberry and caramel eclairs.
And for the Showstopper, the student made an impressive blackberry and lemon tart.
It was enough to keep him in the competition, as GBBO’s Linda left the show.
But for viewers at home, many thought Peter should have been this week’s Star Baker, which he has already won this series.
In the end, the judges chose Laura as Star Baker.
What did GBBO viewers say about the Star Baker decision during Pastry Week?
Reacting on Twitter, viewers said the judges ‘robbed’ Peter of this week’s Star Baker.
One fumed: “Peter was first in technical and Laura near the bottom!”
Peter was first in technical and Laura near the bottom!
And now for the other side of this accnt’s purpose: reality tv opinions.

However, not everyone felt that way, as some thought Laura deserved to be Star Baker.
“Laura is my fave,” said one fan, adding: “So glad she won Star Baker #gbbo.”
“Laura has been my fave from the start,” another wrote on Twitter. “So glad she got Star Baker this week! Get it girl! #GBBO.”
Someone else said: “Well done, Laura! Well deserved Star Baker this week. I’m going to miss Linda’s smiley face though #GBBO.”
