    But all that said, I still have no clue where the "they always favor the white housewife" discourse comes from

Because much the same way you will dig into something until you can dismiss it on a technicality, you refuse to acknowledge something said to you eight times over if it might force you to change your mind.

Great British Baking Show is an exercise in "here's this obscure method of mixing milk and flour from somewhere approved like Provence, hold it next to an English tea rose at dawn but be sure to toss it in at gas mark 4 before noon lest it taste like something". Is there a hot white girl? She'll stick around to the final four at least. Is there Granny Mugglesworth? She'll be around until the final three. The last two seasons? Paid for by Netflix so fucking of course they'll favor the minorities but they'll still greatly emphasize the importance of fine british flavors cooked in a fine british way, which is what every comment on this page is about, which you've already agreed to, but which you're constitutionally bound to ignore in italics 'cuz that's how you roll.

And I'm not in the fucking mood today.

Top Chef is fucking Magical Elves for fucking Bravo. Life is too goddamn short to work for either. Nobody works Magical Elves shows any more than they have to and I've never had to. And I hope to god I never will.

Idk man say what you will about minorities but don’t hate on their cooking. British food tastes like wet cardboard when compared to what’s available in India, China and the Middle East where spices of all sort are readily used and available. If you want bold new flavors that’s the people who have them. Hell the history of America food is all minorities, what did the pilgrims bring over? Fuck all that’s what, dumbasses mostly starved and practiced cannibalism anyway.
