What other hobbies can the GBBO television format be applied to?

eggs

#1

We’ve got pottery, painting and sewing. The arse isn’t ripped out of it yet though, there’s plenty of room for more derivatives!


#2

Bicycle repair


#3

Fiendish sudoku


#4

a bit cycling, but allowed!!


#5

They didn’t use the ‘Great Brittish’ aspect but the BBC have done similar formats for both garden design and room decoration, IIRC.


#6

channel 4 did the interior design one, but you’re correct


#7

Paper mache :scream:


#8

Aha! Cheers

Here’s the garden one:


#9

I think I remember the room one (but only vaguely), I’d forgotten about it


#10

not wrong, but another gardening one


#11

Oh wait,

This is the one I was thinking of:


#12

Furniture restoration?


#13

basically any brexit-y hobbies innit

Trainspotting?


#14

I suppose queuing or maybe a spot of colonialism


#15

Ah, I do recall that one but it was the Garden show thing I was thinking of. They had to do a whole themed display and stuff like the final challenge on GBBO.

What we’re learning is the BBC is REALLY rinsing this idea.


#16

I’m actually quite angry about this now.


#17

Trainspotting doesn’t strike me as that Brexity tbh. I reckon your average trainspotter has pretty niche political interests - I can’t imagine them caring about what the Daily Mail thinks.

If a trainspotter voted Brexit, they probably did so for some bullshit reason like “issues of sovereignty” or something, not just out of casual racism.


#18

it’s a hard-hitting thread, like most of my others


#19

Reckon they’ll do a really shit computing one to try to appeal to the YOOF. like coding or CAD or something
