The Great British Baking Show: How to avoid spoilers ahead of Netflix premiere
Welford, UK - The Great British Baking Show is back with a new season this Friday, but anyone looking to stay spoiler and burnt-bun-free may want to change their social media settings.
The 10th season of Great British Baking Show is back on Netflix this Friday with 12 new contestants ready to whip up a bunch of baked goods in the 10-week-long battle for the title of Best Baker.
New episodes will be out each Friday, with the finale scheduled for November 18.
For anyone unfamiliar with one of the most comforting, cozy competition shows on TV, the format is simple.
Each episode has three parts, based on the three challenges or bakes. There's "a signature challenge (which asks bakers to quickly whip up their own interpretation of a dish), a technical challenge (where bakers must follow the same surprise recipe), and a showstopper challenge (where the resulting bake should be showstopping)," per Netflix.
Whichever baker impresses long-time judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood will be awarded the title of Star Baker. Those who don't rise to the challenge are booted from the big bakers' tent.
How to avoid spoilers on social media
The sugary-sweet show, which is referred to as the Great British Bake Off in the UK, aired in Britain three days before it comes to Netflix.
That means American fans may want to put their social media alerts about the show on mute to avoid spoilers in the form of cakes or hysterical antics of comedian hosts Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas.
In fact, Twitter users may want to make sure they're only following the hashtag #GBBS (Great British Baking Show) and not #GBBO (Great British Bake Off).
US viewers who don't change their settings may find out who burned their buns and who won Star Baker before getting to watch the episodes themselves.
