Style over substance or the older blonde.

Kimberley. Although I do like christine.

Kimberly...if Paul can control himself and not just award the whole thing to Ruby because she flutters her eyelashes!!

LaVitaBellissima Thu 03-Oct-13 18:16:41

I like Ruby smile

honeybeeridiculous Thu 03-Oct-13 18:34:42

I was thinking Ruby but she's starting to annoy me with her pouting, and 'winging it' [hmmm] maybe kimberly

Gingerandcocoa Thu 03-Oct-13 18:37:53

I want Christine to win!!!

Ruby would have been my favourite if it wasn't for Paul drooling over her, it's making me sick!

Christine is a safe pair of hands. She's Mary Berry 20 years ago.

Not keen on Ruby with the "I haven't got a clue what I'm doing," routine. It's boring now. First it was because of exams (fair enough), now it's because she got a new cat confused

So tough to call. Kimberley has been the front runner all series, but the judges seem to be getting bored. I think perhaps the storyline is heading for Frances - bear in mind that this has been edited after the final result is known, so if Ruby puts salt instead of sugar in her final showstopper or Christine runs amok with a blowtorch, they'd edit it to make it look as if it were building up to this all along.

Ruby. I think she's genuinely talented, despite the eyelash batting.

I also think ruby is talented

I'd be going with Kimberley if she could have done pastry

Christine is flawless classics that taste delicious I guess - but really sadly is too dull to win

It would be nice to smell and taste. Not so much the undercooked or salted instead of sugared bakes.

Relaxedandhappyperson Thu 03-Oct-13 20:47:16

Oh god, not Ruby. Pretending to think she's useless to get the sympathy vote from Paul.

Frances or Kimberley to win I think.

At the moment it could go any way. I would love it if Becca or Frances won TBH.

Interesting that last year's final was all-male but this year there are only women in the last 5.

I want Becca to win, she's been steady all the way through. Kimberly is too confident, Christine has made too many mistakes with basic stuff, I'm getting annoyed with Ruby's hanging of her head and the style over substance woman is too particular with what everything looks like. She'd be my second choice though.

I don't know all their names, but I think it will be the flustered one. They always seem to choose someone who has been "on a journey" and learnt the most, rather than the best baker.

I hope it will be Kimberley - I think she's being briefed against in the editing at the moment. But it could be ruby because both judges are patently v keen on her.

chocoluvva Fri 04-Oct-13 13:44:33

They all seem amazingly good. Tough call!

Oblomov Fri 04-Oct-13 16:02:05

Kimberley or Ruby.
probably Kimberly. Because Ruby lacks the self confidence that Kimberley has.

Lottapianos Fri 04-Oct-13 16:05:07

Hope it will be Kimberley or Becca. Ruby's Princess Di act is getting really old

PumpUpMyVolume Fri 04-Oct-13 17:52:40

Hmmmm, I would like it to be Christine but I think Ruby will take it as she is young and talented - although not sure if she's the best. It will all come down to the final show though which is a shame but what happened last year..

Hmm not sure. Ruby is really getting on my nerves now, she seems very fake. Kimberly seems a bit smug, also getting irritating. Christine is too 'safe', I'd like either Becka or Frances to win I think.

INeedThatForkOff Sat 05-Oct-13 02:18:56

Ugh. Is Kimberley the one who keeps congratulating herself'

'Wow, that's really good custard'.

I can really believe that she asked for an upgrade to first class a few weeks back for winning baker of the week. Very annoying.

Ruby is very clever and obviously works extremely hard to perfect her recipes. I don't understand why she keeps pretending to be surprised when her stuff comes out well - she clearly practices and perfects as much as possible in advance. She is doing herself a disservice by pretending to be ditsy when she clearly isn't.
Unfortunately, she is coming over as the sort of woman who bats her eyelashes at a big stwong man. Which is infuriating to watch.

I like Becca best - but mostly because I can imagine having a laugh with her - the rest of them seem a bit too intense.

stringornothing Sat 05-Oct-13 08:24:49

I like Becca's personality too.

Kimberley doesn't seem to have a screen personality beyond "really really good at baking". That should be enough of course because it's not a public vote, but I hope we are shown a bit more of her home life when we move in to the quarter finals.
