Great British Bake Off – How Does it Work?

For those who donโ€™t know what the Great British Bake Off, the concept is very straightforward.

It essentially sees a group of amateur bakers battle it out by performing a series of three baking tasks:

  • a signature bake,
  • a technical challenge,
  • and a show-stopper.

Each week one contestant is removed and one is awarded the star baker of that week.

Finale Format

Over a series of weeks, different contestants are eliminated until they reach the final, where there are just three bakers left. In the finale, these three then go head to head to head for the chance to win the prize of the ultimate baker.

 If you have ever watched an episode of MasterChef, then the concept
is very familiar except that the concept revolves around baking as opposed to
full-blown cooking. Naturally, with this competition concept in mind, how bets
on Great British Bake Off work is clearly apparent.

Great British Bake Off 2019 – What Can You Bet On?

Naturally, you are now wondering how exactly can you bet on the Great British Bake Off? Well, like any competition, sports or on TV, you can bet on every element the shows offer. The first example is naturally the outright winner when the show reaches the finale, as well as will be the finalists in the competition.

Before this though, every week there will be two elements in which you can bet on:

  1. Who will be the next person to go out of the competition
  2. Who will be that weekโ€™s Star Baker

As there are three separate tasks each week as well, this means that there are three bets you can place during each show, for example, who will win that weekโ€™s showstopper challenge.

Other types of bets

These are the fundamentals of the show, but the show is very quirky in its nature and so is the betting. There may be, therefore, little bets based on inside jokes of the show. These may revolve around contestants or the presenters clothing, speech elements of the show (as innuendos are very popular), or the items that the contestants will be asked to bake.

As well as these in-competition bets, there are also other bets that revolve around other areas of the seriesโ€™ production. These were most prevalent back in 2017 when the show moved from the BBC to Channel 4.

A number of main elements of the show, such as its presenters and one of the judges, left the show in protest. During this time, there was a lot of betting action about who would be their replacements. If a cast member leaves again in the future, you can expect a resurgence in this style of betting.
