The Great British Bake Off has said goodbye to another baker after things got tricky during biscuit week.
Jairzeno was the second baker to leave the tent after his showstopper failed to impress.
Speaking after his exit, he confessed that he wasn’t surprised his time was up given how much effort everyone else put into their final biscuit week bakes.
Jairzeno said: ‘I was half expecting that result because if you look at the showstopper compared to everyone else’s mine was quite basic.’
His fellow baker Amanda was sad to see him go, adding: ‘I am absolutely gutted.
‘He’s so lovely and laid back. His flavours are amazing, I don’t understand…well someone has to go don’t they?’
The contestant didn’t manage to get one over on Paul and Prue as they criticised how his boat-shaped showstopper was structured.
Jairzeno was born in Trinidad and Tobago and moved to London 15 years ago, where he works as a head of finance and enjoys running marathons.
On Tuesday night’s programme judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith put the bakers to the test with jammie dodgers, brandy snaps, one heck of a showstopper – making 3D biscuit models of working childhood toys.
The contestants delivered up windmills, a toy plane, a boat, a pool table and a rocking horse which sadly fell to bits moments before the end of the challenge.
After another impressive week, Jürgen was named star baker once again.
Next week it’s bread week and as it’s Paul’s area of expertise he will no doubt be stricter than he usually is.
The Great British Bake Off airs Tuesdays at 8pm on Channel 4.
