Season 10 of “The Great British Baking Show” has a new Hottie Baker: Sandro

The great British pastry fair is back on Netflix and the world is a better place for it. In the first episode of The great British pastry fair Collection 10, Paul Hollywood resisted giving anyone (apart from himself) a “Hollywood handshake”, struggling new sweet bakers Rebs successfully bounced back in the Showstopper Challenge, and our first Star Baker of the season, Janusz, gave us an iconic soundbite: “I won Star Caker in Bake Week (!!!)”

But the thing I can’t wait to tell all my classmates Britain’s Greatest Baking Fair fanatics is that there’s a new hottie in the tent. Of course we all miss Chigs. Chigs had great button down shirts, sexy features and an irresistible smile. But this year we have Sandro. She’s a 30-year-old nanny who hits the gym twice a day, woos lovers with white roses, and can cook her butt. Hold on to your buns because Sandro is an early favorite in our big Bake-Off pick of 2022.

I have long thought that the secret of The great British pastry fairThe continued success of has nothing to do with judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith or the ever-changing list of hosts. The heart and soul of The great British pastry fair are the bakers. If we don’t care about those sweet, eccentric souls busting their ass to make a sponge from scratch, stovetop jelly, and self-contained edible structures, we’re just not going to stick with the show. We tune in to watch our favorites overcome baking disasters or succumb to demanding reviews. We see ourselves either in the bakers or, more often, in the people we wish we had in our lives.

Every year The great British pastry fair must take on the challenge of filling the Bake-Off tent with another dozen pure, talented, effervescent, relatable and ambitious bakers. And somehow – with a few exceptions in my opinion – they pulled it off with flying colors. There are certainly “types” that you will now see every year in the tent. There’s usually an older woman who’s been cooking for her family every week for decades. (This year it’s Dawn.) There’s also usually a splash of nice, nerdy dad types. (Will and Kevin seem to fill out that demographic this year.) And there’s still a sweet 20 or so I’d dub “the English rose.” (However, this year’s “Rose”, Rebs, is Northern Irish.) And in some years – if we’re lucky – The great British pastry fair give us a piece.

Sometimes these guys come from unlikely places. Like, maybe we weren’t in love with Tamal Ray in week 1 of his season, but we swooned over him near the end. Other times, it’s clear from the jump, oh, we have the right to fall for this guy. The slick Selassie motorcyclist immediately comes to mind. This season, The great British pastry fair the gods gave us a “Selassie” in the form of Sandro.

So what makes Sandro so attractive? I mean, besides the fact that he’s incredibly fit and wears tight knit shirts? Well, it turns out that Sandro is a serious early contender to win this season of The great British pastry fair. Not only did he come close to picking up the victory in the technical challenge, but he was almost Star Baker. And while some bakers have a strong “cake week” and crash when it comes to bread or cookies, Sandro seems to have a competitive edge for him.

That’s not the only thing to love about Sandro. The guy has already shown that he has a heart of gold. I dare you to watch him hug a sobbing Janusz and not feel joy! He’s a nice and sexy guy who cooks! How can I not overwrite?

The fate of this year’s bakers is still unclear, but I have a feeling we’re going to be craving Sandro for weeks.
