But Judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood weren’t too impressed with Mak’s Chai Indian tea cookie creation, calling it “flat” and “awkward,” so he ended up in the latter two.
Mak, of Bolton, took on Rowan Williams, who has failed to impress the judges so far in the series, which started last week.
When Mak was sent home, shocked fans took to Twitter to criticize the decision and accused the show of keeping Rowan because he was “better entertainment value.”
We raged: “Shocking absolutely shocking! I thought the show was about cooking abilities, not personality.
“I’m sorry for the two competitors Mak because he was stolen and Rowan because he knows he shouldn’t have passed. ”
A second slammed: “You threw Mak out and kept Rowan this week. It only took the judges two weeks to piss everyone off. “
A third agreed, “They sent Mak home?” !!! When Rowan af ** k took up all the challenges !!! I do not understand. I am very angry. ”
A third wrote: “Rowan is a lot of fun and I like him but he was saved because he is a ‘character’, Mak was a much better baker.
A fourth posted: “Mak was stolen tonight, third in technique and good flavor. I can see the change to channel 4 and make the entertainment program clear in this year’s lineup! “
A firth exploded sarcastically: “’Mak, that was absolutely excellent’ oh by the way, you’re out… I mean, what the fuck is the real thing. ”
Another added: “Eviscerated for Mak, the producers kept the worst baker for the too political show.
But not everyone was bored – Rowan’s fans stood up for his corner.
One of them tweeted: “Rowan is nothing short of a pleasure to watch. His ideas are brilliant, but time always prevents them. I took away my little fairy life to cook another day.
