There was an unexpected twist in the semi-finals of baking competition Crème De La Crème when Angie, hailed one of the favourites to win the contest, was eliminated because of an unfortunate mix-up.
Indignant netizens feel that Angie, who performed consistently well in the competition, deserved to be in the finals and that her elimination was "unfair" as she was penalised for another contestant's error.
The incident happened when Angie’s mousse base was mistakenly taken by another contestant, Ean, during the preparation process. All four contestants’ bases had been prepped and placed in the freezer earlier. Ean reached out for the mousse base ahead of Angie.
Ean apologised when Angie realised he had taken her tray. At that point, Ean was already using her mousse base. The judges then asked them if they wanted to make another batch of mousse. Both of them declined as they had already made a failed batch prior to the mix-up. Angie decided to proceed with Ean’s tray.
