to want Candice to leave GBBO next week simply because of all the gurning?

I'd clearly make a crap judge.
She's obviously a fab baker, having won star baker twice but I really really hope next week is her last as all of the pouting is driving me potty.
DP thinks it's because she's trying to hide wrinkles around her mouth, which is insane if it's true.
All the ridiculous gurning is giving me The Rage.

Also, thanks to the Mnetter last week who mentioned Paul using "Mary" in every sentence.
Now that's all I hear.

I'm sure she's lovely btw blush but I do wish shed keep her mouth still!

YABU, one of my favourite bakers.

It's not Face Off, is it?

Jellybean83 Thu 22-Sep-16 12:17:24

I don't get all the Candice hate, I think she's great.

NatashaRomanov Thu 22-Sep-16 12:18:04

She does seem to be fond of the old duck face pout! Even my husband commented on it.

Shoxfordian Thu 22-Sep-16 12:18:26

Yeah I like Candice as well; she's very talented

Anyone see last night's? Danish Pastries?! Life is too short.

JudyCoolibar Thu 22-Sep-16 12:18:27

YABU. I think she's funny, and the fact that she draws her lipstick that way is in no way the equivalent of gurning.

I think she just does it as a nervous tick, I giggle that would be far more annoying haha grin

It is awful, I agree. But she knows how to bake and how to present. She does come across as being a bit smug. Not that there is anything wrong with that within a competition. A competition that does give a lot of rewards to the winner.

Everyone has their nemesis in baking. She hasn't met hers yet. Expect loads of tears!!!!

MumOnTheRunCatchingUp Thu 22-Sep-16 12:20:33

Aw Yabu!!

Candice lives nearby and her gingerbread pub was a 'replica' of our local pub the king William! So I'm a fan!

I think she is great, probably my favourite. She shows her emotions so clearly by her face.

HeyNannyNanny Thu 22-Sep-16 12:23:06

She's definitely talented, don't get me wrong.
But does she present well? With all that face action?

SPOILERS
I really couldn't stand Val but then felt AWFUL when she left yesterday. She was so sad sad

kelper Thu 22-Sep-16 12:23:08

I like her, she reminds me of someone I used to know, and I love her lipstick colours ;)

kelper Thu 22-Sep-16 12:24:15

PS OP thank you for saying who left, I paused my tv half way through, and when I pressed play it jumped to the end credits so I didn't see who went sad
Genuine thank you, not a sarky one btw ;)

HandmaidsTail Thu 22-Sep-16 12:26:03

God, imagine having the audacity to be a woman and go on telly with a FACE and everything, when some people might not like it?! The cow. angry

taytopotato Thu 22-Sep-16 12:27:14

yes you are BU. I like Candice and she is a good baker.

EvansAndThePrince Thu 22-Sep-16 12:27:33

I cannot work out if I love her or find her irritating grin

mamalovesmojitos Thu 22-Sep-16 12:28:36

YABU I think she has a face that can't hide what she's thinking, and that's very endearing. Plus her baking is great.

LikeDylanInTheMovies Thu 22-Sep-16 12:28:40

I'm a bit hmm when people slag off contestants on a game show on the basis of their appearance. It isn't like she's a Kardashian who has created a public persona to sell to the world, she is an ordinary member of the public who could be reading this for all we know.

On the few minutes of the bake off I've seen they seem to pronounce her name 'Candiss.' I've always pronounced it 'CANdeese' (to rhyme with peace).

Have I been pronouncing the name Candice incorrectly for 20 odd years?

HeyNannyNanny Thu 22-Sep-16 12:29:36

kelper you gave me a heart attack there. I thought I'd spoilt it for you! shock blush

IceBeing Thu 22-Sep-16 12:30:21

I can't help feeling she heard how popular Nadja was for having a mobile expressive face and thought I can do that!

I wish she would leave off the lipstick...I think she might look nice, approachable and less nuts without it.

FantasieImpromptu Thu 22-Sep-16 12:30:27

I'm a bit sick of her double entendres- I mean, the sausage balls comment last night, getting Sue to "give her a hand with the jugs" a few weeks ago...
Just seems a bit forced to me.

HeyNannyNanny Thu 22-Sep-16 12:31:21

I'm sure the pouting is deliberate...
Other than that she's very attractive, not that that matters. Clearly it's her baking that is the important factor, which I did stipulate twice in my OP smile

RaskolnikovsGarret Thu 22-Sep-16 12:34:15

I think her face is just like that, and people are being mean. She is actually quite self-deprecating, not smug at all in my view.

MitzyLeFrouf Thu 22-Sep-16 12:34:18

She's clearly aiming to be the 'standout personality' of the show with the hope of getting a media career once it's all over. And that's fair enough. But I still find her irritating. The pouting, the boring family anecdotes. Blah.

None of them are standout bakers to me.

ElspethFlashman Thu 22-Sep-16 12:35:10

I'm undecided. Cos I like her as a person.

But I was quite irritated by the simpering last night. It was very OTT and I don't think it's entirely unconscious.

It's just a bit much really.
