What It's Like to Be a Stressed Out Baker on 'The Great British Baking Show"

image

After binging an entire season of The Great British Baking Show (or The Great British Bake-Off, as its known in the U.K.), I’m always left wondering: why would an amateur baker put themselves through 10 weeks of stress, emotional torment, and melting ganaches if they weren’t total masochists? Despite its quaint British charm, the reality competition show is no joke. Competing on the show is a full-time commitment, with many bakers losing money in the process. But hey, at least it’s worth it to win that coveted trophy while gazing into Paul Hollywood’s eyes, eh? 

But in case you were sitting at home thinking, “Hey, I can totally bake a Victoria sponge cake without dropping it on the floor,” here’s what it’s like to be a contestant on the cutest emotional stress test on television.

1

Be prepared for a daunting audition process.

2

Say goodbye to your social life. Being on the show is a full-time commitment.

3

You’ll get to stay at a hotel while filming.

4

You’ll hate baking in a tent.

5

You can’t be camera-shy.

6

You might lose money appearing on the show.

7

Don’t expect to see the hosts or judges much.

8

Expect to wear the same clothes twice.

9

Don’t expect to take home any leftovers. The crew eats everything.

10

There’s a food runner.

11

A single person is responsible for hand-washing all the dishes.

12

Producers won’t come to your help.

Guy Gets Unorthodox "Date Request" Note Like It's Middle School and It's Adorable

image

Asking someone out is a nerve-wracking experience, one that I think has been unfortunately supplanted by all of the modern romantic assistance technology that we have access to in the palms of our hands.

With apps like Tinder and Bumble, you just swipe swipe swipe through photos. Not only is this super dehumanizing, but it takes away all the butterflies and anticipation from that initial “leap of faith” when you approach someone in public.

So it’s pretty amazing when someone tells you they like you in a totally non-creepy way. Which is probably why this Twitter user, Cody, was so smitten after receiving this adorable note from a stranger.

image

It reads:

“Hey, if you’re not gay, my friend thinks you’re cute. Here’s her number: ###-###-####

(and if you are gay here’s mine: ###-###-#### 

I don’t often get told I’m good-looking by total randos in a way that isn’t insulting.

So I’m kind of jealous of that adorable bit of attention Cody received from this random person and their friend. 

Admittedly, he did had some reservations about whoever made the gesture. I mean grammar proficiency can be pretty sexy, so I get where he’s coming from.

imageimage

Nevertheless, Cody opted to text the bottom number because yes, he’s gay (something not everyone knows about him. This’ll be useful information later on in the story. I promise). 

Thankfully, he provided Twitter with regular updates by being totally candid about the prospect of finding romance with this stranger who mustered up the courage to pass him a note middle school style.

imageimage

Plans to see movies were made, but at the outset, it seemed like their tastes were wildly different. 

The crushing boy in question wanted to watch a sport documentary about rock climbing, which sounds pretty intense if I’m remembering that opening scene from Mission Impossible 2 correctly, or a film about a border agent who can smell human emotions.

imageimage

Cody was more interested in blockbuster titles and the two couldn’t decide on a film so he decided to call it a night so he would be well-rested for his date. But not before his roommate displayed a profound lack of knowledge about his love life and partner preferences.

imageimage

He provided everyone with up-to-the-minute info on his date. When they still couldn’t decide which movie to watch, they opted to have dinner first instead. I honestly think that’s the better move: when you meet someone new you’re interested in, don’t you want to talk a bit first instead of sit in a dark room in total silence?

imageimage

Now here’s when things get really interesting. Our boy Cody gets nervous. If you’ve ever felt those butterflies when meeting somebody for the first time, then you know you’re hitting something that could potentially be great: it means that it matters to you. Or at the very least, you want it to.

imageimage

Turns out that the first date was a success. He honestly didn’t have to tweet anything else besides this selfie of him and the dude with an obviously amazing choice in shirts. It’s not like you’re going to snap a photo of someone if the date goes badly, right?

imageimage

Everyone who followed the thread got to witness the pursuit of love and a confirmation of a second date. I don’t know about you, but I get all warm and fuzzy when I see people hitting it off and getting excited about finding a potential partner. I mean, just look at that blushing emoji.

image

Here’s the thing, though. Remember how Cody’s roommate didn’t know he was gay, and neither did the young woman who gave him her number who also thought he was cute? Yeah, well it turns out his mother didn’t know either.

image

After Cody’s tweets went viral, his mother saw them. If she didn’t know his orientation before, she knows now. Thankfully, she seems to be taking the news well.

I don’t know what’s going to happen with Cody and his hot new date, but at the very least, he has a great story about how his mother finally discovered he was gay all because he tweeted a picture of a cute note.

I Rewatched The OC Chrismukkah Episode and It's Still a Holiday Classic

image

Gather ‘round, children (or nostalgia-soaked millennials) because it’s the 15th anniversary of “The Best Chrismukkuh Ever” episode! Yes, on December 3rd, 2003, The OC introduced us to the perfect fusion holiday that is Chrismukkah by way of Seth Cohen. For teens in Jewish or interfaith families, “The Best Chrismukkuh Ever” was a Godsend, so to speak. Using his trademark wit, Seth offered up a way to blend all the best parts of the season in a harmonious way. For the rest of us, it was good television. Really good television.

In fact, I took “The Best Chrismukkuh Ever” for a spin just in time for the first night of Hanukkah, and let me tell you, it holds up. Not only because it mashes up all those great traditions, but because it mashes up all those great storylines that made The OC a teen soap for the history books.*

So what’s it going to be, huh? You want a menorah or a candy cane? Well, don’t worry, buddy, because on this show, you don’t have to choose. Chronologically speaking, here all the little grace notes that make “The Best Chrismukkah Ever” a true classic. 

*Seasons one through three only, sorry, I’m a purist. 

1

Seth really brings out the enthusiasm for his Chrismukkah sales pitch.

2

We learn that this is the most Cohen-y holiday ever, but also a really beautiful celebration of one’s dual heritage.

3

On this blessed day, the Seth Cohen Starter Pack was born.

4

Ryan and Marissa have an adorable Christmas montage.

5

Ryan’s little smile when Seth hands him a Christmas stocking.

6

Seth’s in the middle of a Summer and Anna love triangle and they both show up looking I N C R E D I B L E.

7

Anna gifts Seth an objectively adorable comic book.

8

…which Summer overshadows by dressing up as Wonder Woman, leading to a surprisingly peaceful confrontation.

9

Back to Marissa, this episode’s downward spiral plotline involves an excellent Dandy Warhols motif.

10

Which leads to a heartbreaking little outburst by Ryan.

11

Sandy Cohen saves Chrismukkah, probably.

12

Those Seth Cohen Starter Packs backfire, but don’t worry, Chrismukkah is unruinable.

13

Amazing, Happy Chrismukkah, everyone!

It's Whatever, But We Have Our 'Clueless' Remake Dream Cast Picked Out

image

When Paramount Pictures announced a remake of Clueless was underway, the news broke the internet. From publishing thinkpieces on movies that should never be rebooted to avid fans expressing excitement on Twitter, the Clueless reboot has had everyone talking.

And though we don’t know too much about it just yet and it hasn’t been cast yet, we do know Marquita Robinson, a writer and editor on Netflix’s GLOW, will pen the script for Clueless’ remake, at least according to The Hollywood Reporter. Plus, Girl’s Trip writer Tracy Oliver is set to produce the film, so it’s not complete and utter doom.

If the rest of the Clueless franchise is any indication, the 2019 remake will probably bring in a lot of cash, too. Although the initial movie was a hard sell, it ended up making $56 million in the U.S. on a meager $12 million budget. The film’s success led to a brief TV spinoff and even Clueless, the Musical opening in NYC next month.

image

But the reboot will have to get a lot of things right, if it wants to satisfy die-hard fans. The original film, an adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma, was set in the ‘90s and it was SO ‘90s. I mean, it epitomized the culture of the decade unlike any other piece of art. OK, maybe Kids — but I digress.

The film is going to need quite a facelift to stand up in 2019. For one, Cher and Dionne, named after “great singers of the past” will definitely require a moniker update. As for the tartan skirts and ready-to-wear Alaïa? Athleisure or a stunning Jacquemus might be more fitting.

So, who could play a convincing and updated version of the Bronson Alcott High School students?

Read on for our dream cast.

Kiernan Shipka as Cher

image

Kiernan Shipka, the little girl from Mad Men is about to celebrate her 19th birthday. Feel old yet? Recently, she’s been on screen as the eponymous character in Netflix’s The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina — which also means Kiernan is no stranger to reboots. Plus, her uncanny resemblance to Alicia Silverstone makes this casting choice a no-brainer.

Yara Shahidi as Dionne

image

The 18-year-old actress and activist is so wonderful in her role as Zoey on ABC’s Black-ish, the character got her own spinoff, Grown-ish, on Freeform. She also happens to be as fun to follow on social media as she is on the big screen — and her Instagram skills will come in handy for the Clueless reboot, which will probably rely heavily on today’s digital zeitgeist. All in all, we think she’d be the perfect best friend to Cher. I mean, who else could pull off Dionne’s many fashion looks so fabulously?

Awkwafina as Tai

image

It’s hard to imagine anyone else filling the shoes of late Brittany Murphy. And because it’s sad to consider, there’s only one person we can think of who might do Tai’s role justice. Queens-born Awkwafina hasn’t been a household name for very long, but in the past few years, she’s secured roles in Oceans 8, Crazy Rich Asians, and recently even hosted SNL. We think she’d be perfect to play a naive, bubbly new girl who is eager to make friends.

Paul Rudd as Josh (again)

image

Who else could play Cher’s stepbrother-turned-love-interest better than Paul Rudd? We feel very “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” about this one. Plus, if he cut his hair short and dressed for 2019, he’d probably look exactly the same. (Though the age difference between him and Kiernan is admittedly gross… so maybe not.)

Jaden Smith as Murray

image

Jaden Smith is probably better known for his eccentricity than he is for his acting chops these days, but playing Murray in a Clueless reboot could change that. The 20-year-old has starred in films like After Earth, The Pursuit of Happyness and The Karate Kid, and we think it’d be hilarious to watch him teach Dionne how to drive.

Ilana Glazer as Amber

image

Writer, comedian and actress Ilana Glazer is best known for her work on Broad City, which is coming to an end this season. All the better, as far as we’re concerned — this will free up her schedule to play Amber. The redhead who popularized the iconic W-hand gesture to signify “whatever” is definitely going to need a 2019 update. And we’re confident Ilana would know exactly what to do with the part.

Hasan Minaj as Travis

image

All it took was the Netflix special Homecoming to sell us on Hasan Minhaj last year, and we think he would be incredible on screen as Tai’s stoner crush, Travis. The skater-boy part of his character is harder to picture, but the 2019 remake will hopefully replace this detail with something more fitting to the times — like Bird scooters or Citibikes. 

Timotee Chamalet as Christian

image

Be still my heart. Who in the world would be better to play Cher’s gay bestie, Christian? Initially Cher’s crush, the two eventually strike up a friendship over their shared tastes in art and fashion — and we can’t imagine anyone better than Call Me By Your Name and Beautiful Boy‘s Timothée Chamalet to play the part. 

Stephen Colbert as Mel Horowitz

image

While Stephen Colbert is best known for The Colbert Report, The Daily Show and Late Night with Stephen Colbert, he also has plenty of acting credits under his belt. Perhaps most memorably, he played in The Hobbit, The Love Guru and Bewitched. We also think he would be a hilarious dad to millennial Cher. Just imagine him using legal jargon to argue over what a dress is, or how long it takes to get anywhere in LA.

We also think John Cho would make a hilarious Mr. Hall, and we propose that he fall in love with Chrissy Teigen as Miss Geist. Her quirk and online humor would allow her to play a perfect 2019 version of the teacher — and the two have already had Twitter beef, which would provide the perfect energy for an on-screen fling. 

We don’t know how we’ll feel about the actual movie, but we do know we’re excited for them to announce the cast.

This Guy Live-Tweeted Someone "Stealing" His Hotel Room and It's Hilarious

image

This story from Daniel Jose is a cautionary tale about jumping to conclusions. Or maybe it’s about a bunch of people who have no idea what the heck is going on. Or maybe it’s a tale of a dastardly individual who tried checking into a hotel room under someone else’s name.

Or it could be a combination of all three of them. Whatever the case is, whenever you’re confronted with something out of the ordinary, it’s not uncommon for your brain to work in less-than-optimal ways.

Which is exactly what happened with our friend, Twitter user Daniel Jose Older, walked into what he was sure was his hotel room. Only to find the TV on and someone else’s luggage on the bed. He understandably freaked out.

image

Like any rational-minded individual with a Twitter account, he decided, immediately after walking out of there like this toddler in the classic GIF below, to hop on Twitter and tell everyone about his imminent doom.

imageimage

He soon discovered that someone just didn’t accidentally go inside his room or that there was some swipe access error, but that the person checked in using his name. Now sometimes hotels mess up and give someone the wrong room.

imageimage

But why would someone check into your room with your name unless they were attempting to get into some kind of tomfoolery with it? Or maybe it’s a Single White Female-type of situation, you know, without that whole scary high heel scene (hopefully).

imageimage

Daniel was freaking out, and thankfully the hotel did solve his whole not-having a room issue. Except there was one little problem: they shacked him up in a room that was adjacent to the one that his maybe-clone “stole” from him.

imageimage

Granted, there is probably a very logical explanation for all of this, but it doesn’t look good when you’re trying to get into your hotel room and then you find out that someone up and took it using your name.

imageimage

Then for you to have to stay in a room next to the person who could be potentially stealing your identity? Not cool. Really not cool. Granted. Daniel mentions previous experiences he’s had with other people walking into his room accidentally, but still. This seems like a slightly different situation.

imageimage

As it turns out though, Daniel was just over-reacting for no reason. That didn’t stop a bunch of people in his Twitter feed from giving him some very sound advice. Heck, if I was in his state of mind I’d probably hop in my rental car and keep the engine running till the whole thing was figured out.

imageimage

As it happens, this was less the work of some shady scumbag trying to steal his identity/make a skin suit of Daniel’s body, and more to do with a hotel worker who was overly tired and put the wrong information in their computer.

imageimage

It didn’t stop Daniel from having a bit of fun with the entire thing. And for his inconvenience/duress/triggering of delusional and paranoid fantasies, the hotel went and comped him his meal. So he’s got that going for him.

imageimage

He even tweeted to his audience online to let him know that he wasn’t decapitated by the man in the room beside him, for all we know at least.

Well, if there’s something to be learned from this whole experience it’s that if you make a big enough stink about an error, you could get a free dinner out of it.

This Is What It's Really Like to Date a Celebrity, According to Some Very Lucky People

image

Everyone has fantasized about dating a celebrity. For me it was Justin Timberlake (who could resist those NSYNC-era curls?) and two decades later, it would be hard to deny that if the “SexyBack” singer came up to me on the street and asked me out on a date that I would turn him down. Sorry, Jessica Biel, but it’s the truth. 

Though dating Justin, or any famous person for that matter, has yet to happen for me, there are some lucky people out there who know what it’s like to date a celebrity. Thanks to reddit, they came together to share their experiences — and TBH, dating a Hollywood star is not as glamorous as it seems. 

Dare we say, they’re just like us when it comes to finding love? From Elvis Presley to Miley Cyrus, keep scrolling for dating stories involving your favorite celebs and the girl (or boy) next door.

Mom Strikes up a Conversation in a Pizza Shop and Is Blown Away When She Sees Who It's With

image

I’m not really obsessed with the idea of having kids myself, but I can concede that, generally speaking, moms are pretty much the absolute best. First off, it’s absolutely selfless to carry a child in your belly for nine months, and don’t even get me started on trying to shape it into a decent human being while bankrolling its life. 

THEN, it’s even more humbling when you realize that the most expensive stage of parenting only hits once kids grow up into adults, as a new study shows parents are spending more on their 18 to 35-year-olds than they did on their infant-to-toddler, or even elementary-through-high-school years. Which takes me back to point No.1 about not having my own kids, but I digress.

Essentially, moms are just awesome. They’re always around to give you honest advice, a shoulder to cry on, and once you’re out of the house, they generally just exist to be cute. 

And if you don’t believe me because you don’t have an adorable mom who calls you once a month to ask what you want in your (adult) care package (that she pays for), take the story of @ChachiChatters as a prime example.

She shared an adorable story on Twitter that quickly made waves around the internet and has now gone absolutely viral. It’s about a memorable evening she had after her best friend’s daughter invited her out to a concert about seven or eight years ago.

She starts off with some context about how she came to have “one of the loveliest nights and fondest memories” of her life.

image

“I drove down to New Haven and after lunch, she told me she’s going to a concert with her friends and they had bought a ticket for me too,” she tweeted. Some very attentive readers pointed out here that the lunch she’s referring to here is likely the same meal as the “dinner” she wanted to take her friend’s daughter out to before. You know, just in case you were having trouble following.

The embarrassed mom “tried to weasel [her] way out” of the concert with adorable mom excuses that every reader will recognize: “http://undefined/”I’m too old,”http://undefined/”I don’t want to have a cardiac arrest halfway through,”http://undefined/”I will drag you all down with me.”http://undefined/” 

Doesn’t this already make you want to hug Chachi?

In the end, her attempts failed.

“They wouldn’t budge,” she wrote. “I went with them. We drove an hour north. Parked the car and followed the buzzing crowd in.”

Although readers at this point have no idea who Chachi and her college-aged friends went to see, the tweeter continues: “Needless to say, I had the time of my life. We sang along to the most memorable songs. (It’s always amazing when you know the lyrics better than the young ones).”

After hours of presumably singing and dancing, Chachi took the girls back to their dorms. 

“It was may be 2 a.m. and although physically exhausted, I was still high on all the adrenaline,” she remembers. “I was also starving.”

And this is when the story, dear reader, gets really, really good.

image

She hits up a late-night pizza spot in New Haven, which, if you’ve ever been to Connecticut, is where you definitely want to be getting a slice. Places up there even have their own traditional New England pies with seafood on them, which, isn’t at all as gross as it sounds. 

As Chachi tells it, she went to place her order. Then, “someone came and sat next to me.”

I hear a record scratch when I read this next part: “I looked at her. I looked at her again. I looked at her for a minute before I remembered I wasn’t breathing.”

“Lovebud, you okay?’ she said with her mischievous smile,” Chachi recalls.

image

It has to be someone exciting if Chachi decided to share her food with them. I mean, there’s not many people who could get a bite of my personal stash of 2 a.m. garlic knots, so I understand her hesitation.

In the end, she concedes to sharing, and it seems like her generosity was reciprocated — though hastily turned down: “She offered me a slice of her stromboli. I respectfully declined; it had ham. ‘Does that mean I don’t get to ask for another one of your garlic knots?”http://undefined/”

Another garlic knot?! Jeez. Get your own!

“A polite conversation ensued. I’m pretending to be all cool. Inside, I’m purring like a happy cat,” Chachi writes of her late-night encounter. “The waiter comes over and whispered, ‘your table’s ready ma’am.’ I was ready to say goodbye and eat my pizza and be happy for the rest of my life.”

Chachi should be a mystery novelist — all this suspense, my god!

“But instead, she turned to me and asked me if I’d like to join her. I almost did a royal curtsy. But managed to maintain my composure. ‘Of course. And thank you!’,” she added to her Twitter thread. 

Just picturing this tired mom curtsying at a pizza parlor late at night is enough to make me smile.

image

They talked for what feels like a long time, long enough to get down to the gossip of each other’s lives. “I just decided to not bother her with any mention of her fame,” writes Chachi. 

Moms, man. They always know how to act!

She continues, “In the end, we paid our own bills and we’re going to go our separate ways. She asked someone in her entourage for a pen. She took my ticket to her concert from my hand.”

CHACHI, SHOW US THE RECEIPTS!

image

And just like that it’s revealed that Chachi has been casually chatting and eating pizza with none other than the singer-songwriter, actress, producer, philanthropist, country music extraordinaire, Dolly Parton.

“http://undefined/”Now you drive safe baby. And good night’,” were Dolly’s parting words. We’re crying! 

In the aftermath, almost a decade later, Chachi writes she “some days … wake[s] up and still think[s] it was just a dream.” Then she just has to take a look at the signed ticket. “I still get goosebumps,” she writes. “And I smile and I hum a little and I do a little twirl.”

How cute is that?! Not even as cute as the tweet she closes the thread with:

image

People on Twitter went insane when they read Chachi’s incredible story. One person wrote, “I almost broke the screen of my tablet refreshing this to see how it would play out” and we can definitely relate! 

“Chachi, sometimes it’s hard to be a diamond in a rhinestone world, but stories like these always make me smile. Oh, and Dolly is the best. Everyone I know who’s met her say that she’s genuinely lovely and kind,” wrote another.

But for other readers, Chachi’s tale served as a reminder about their own encounters with Dolly. One person shared:

My sisters and I flew coach (alone) from Dallas to LAX when I was 8 and my oldest sister 14. We heard Dolly was in first class and “bum rushed her” unbeknownst to the flight attendants. When they came to escort us back to our seats, Dolly said no way… they are staying here!

She had a ton of room in front of her.. we sat on the floor and she ordered us ice cream sundaes I remember her calling me cute and kissed me on my forehead. I LOVE DOLLY!!

“Loooved your thread!! My niece met her when she was working at a radio station and said she was the sweetest, most down-to-earth celebrity to come to the station,” added someone else

One woman even shared a story about the time she and Dolly had a missed connection:

About 14 years ago, I was a bridesmaid. The bride and I stopped to get our nails done. I rushed to the ladies room past a blond stranger, as the bride tried to get my attention. When I came out, she said “Guess who I just met?” Pointed at a photo of Dolly on the wall. Still sad.

But the best response to this entertaining thread has to be @greenmtgirl’s, who shared a productive tip to any other New Haven lurkers who want their chance at a celebrity sighting and viral fame.
