‘The Great British Baking Show: The Professionals,’ AKA ‘Bake Off: The Professionals,’ is a British baking show that has become a beloved part of the famous ‘The Great British Baking Show‘ franchise. Each and every season introduces viewers to some highly talented bakers whose creations have often left the public speechless. The seventh iteration of the show was certainly no different, which only served to make the victory of Nathan Rave and Kevin Marmion even more impressive. But where are the two winners these days? Well, we are here to explore the same!
Nathan Rave and Kevin Marmion’s Journey
Friends Nathan and Kevin entered the baking show as participants of Heat A, as they competed against five other teams to hopefully claim a spot in the Top 6. The work done by the two helped them earn the first position in the very first week, with their flavors being lauded by judges Benoit Blin and Cherish Finden. The two continued their winning top streak in Week 2, despite the fact that their showpiece did not stay intact until the time of judging due to structural issues.
Given their strong performance in the first two weeks of the competition, Nathan and Kevin could certainly feel the pressure as they tried to make it through Week 3 and hopefully be a part of the Top 6. For their showstopper challenge, they paid homage to Poseidon, and even though the judges stated that they would have liked more visual components, the taste of their chocolate bars helped them once again bag the top spot.
As the competition grew harder, Nathan and Kevin tried their best to show the judges just what they were capable of. Even after entering the Top 6, they maintained their streak of bagging first place thanks to their strong flavors, earning a place in the Quarterfinals. The duo ended up being placed in second position for this round which, all things considered, is indeed quite impressive. However, they made a strong comeback in the semi-finals, once again being declared the top competitor of the week. With only two more challenges in front of them, Nathan and Kevin pulled out all stops and, despite being critiqued on their macron cake, ended up winning the competition due to their visual and flavourful components.
