Except that they routinely give people a pass for their "potential", take into account their record over the course of the season, etc. etc. If that's the rule for eliminations, they do their damnedest to obfuscate it.The Bake Off is an elimination competition, however. Not a league. On the basis of this week, they were the worst and were therefore eliminated. I'm frustrated that it happened, but it wouldn't be the first time that the best baker had a bad week and walked.
I don't know that it was even so clear they were the worst this week, either.
