The Baking Place

My favorite big, beautiful, utterly perfect cartoon giraffe will always be Jameela Jamil. She may be a “hot, rich fraud with legs for days,” but she’s our hot, rich fraud with legs for days. Side note, everyone should really be into Tahani. So nothing could delight me more than finding out Jameela, from one of my favorite TV shows “The Good Place” was on my favorite TV baking show, “The Great British Bake Off” – or, as I like to call it, “Televised Xanax.” Seriously, if the garbage everything about the world ever gets you too down, pop on a couple seasons of GBBO (or “The Great British Baking Show” as American TV insists on calling it) and your troubles will fade away amidst the lovely English countryside and beautifully baked meringues. Heck, even the not so beautifully baked ones are wonderful, as Jameela will attest. She was on a charity Comic Relief Bake Off episode and, well, let’s just say at least she didn’t kill Mary Berry. Still, despite being mortified by her performance, Jameela said in an interview that, “To meet (Mary Berry) and then disappoint her face-to-face is really still one of the greatest things to happen to me.” I just love it when two great things come together, even if one of them is terrible at it. Enjoy, kittens, enjoy.

p.s. “The Good Place” is on tonight and this season is so good and so stressful. I love it more than pie.

yeah! Love Tahani! Had already watched that GBBO episode because I love David Mitchell (the comedian). Now I'm watching for Jameela Jamil who is wonderful as Tahani. Honestly Michael Sheen is pretty awesome too.

Awesome, thanks. Also, this David Mitchell guy plays Shakespeare in Upstart Crow - and it's realy good. Actress who plays Yara Greyjoy on Game of Throne is in it with him, check it out!
