Why is Bake Off also called The Great British Baking Show?
BAKING shows, like Bake Off, are some of the most popular style of cooking shows on television.
The Great British Baking Show, which is available on Netflix, just debuted its newest season on September 24, 2021.
What is The Great British Bake Off?
The Great British Bake Off is a baking competition starring 12 competitors who attempt to create difficult baked recipes in an environment that encourages each other to be helpful rather than overly competitive.
Each week, one contestant is named "Star Baker," winning the round, and another contestant is eliminated. Many of the contestants become friends during the time of the competition.
Judges for the show include chefs Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith, and is hosted by comedians Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas.
The show takes place outside of London, at the Down Hall Hotel Spa and Estate.
Why does the show have two names?
In the United Kingdom, the favored baking show is referred to as The Great British Bake Off, or Bake Off.
In America, the show is referred to as The Great British Baking Show.
According to Insider, the reason has to do with trademarking issues.
Pillsbury, a famous American baking brand owned by General-Mills, owns the trademark for the term "bake off" as it refers to any baking competition in the US.
In 1949, Pillsbury began a baking competition to celebrate their 80th anniversary, known as the Pillsbury Bake Off. When The Great British Baking Show first aired on PBS, the trademark on "bake off" conflicted with the name given to the show in UK.
How can I watch The Great British Bake Off?
The Great British Bake Off now premieres on Channel 4 on Tuesdays at 8pm in the UK. It's available for streaming in the UK on All4, shortly after it premieres live.
The Great British Baking Show is also available for viewing on Netflix. New episodes will be available on the following Fridays.
