On this show, there is a weekly elimination process as the show is telecasted every week. On the Great Australian Bake Off, one contestant among all the other amateurs is eliminated to find the best all-round baker.

The elimination of a contestant is based on the result of an episode’s task. In every episode, the bakers with 3 different challenges: a signature bake, a technical bake and a show-stopper. The Great Australian Bake Off Judges will then scrutinize and critically examine the bakers dishes. And based on that basis, the judges would then declare a contestant as “Baker of the week” and the contestant that is eliminated is also done based on that very result.

The Great Australian Bake Off 2017: The Challenges

Signature Challenge: The signature challenge is for the amateur bakers so that they can show off their tried-and-tested recipes that are countryside, home based and also simple.

Technical Challenge: The technical challenge tests on which contestant can follow instructions and who also has better technical knowledge and experience to produce the finished product. In this test, the bakers are all given the same recipe and are also not told beforehand what the challenge will be. After the challenge, all the outcome of the dishes are tasted by the judges And are ranked based on the scale that goes from worst to best. To make everything interesting and totally genuine, the judges do not know who produced which dish. This makes the challenge free of biasness.
