    I believe Meadow was only 10 years old, whereas Davis was 13 and Paige was 11. As I said above, with another year or two of experience, Meadow would have done much better.

    In the context of former contestants, am curious how people here think the previous winners and finalists stack up with each other? My favorites over all of the seasons are Linsey (winner) and Yashimabet (finalist).

    This would be fun just to see what these kids look like after they hit puberty 😂

    Congrats to Paige on a well deserved win! Going into the episode, I definitely thought it would have been one of the other two (and I was rooting for Meadow), but about halfway through it felt like everything was going Paige’s way. Even the omg moment where she had forgotten to add the pretzels to her buttercream quickly turned around into a non-issue. Decorating-wise, I liked what she was going for. All she had to do was make more and bigger chess pieces for that middle layer (like Davis’ dancers) and it would have been great. Taste-wise, Paige’s cake was probably amazing! I did have the feeling Davis was going to fall short. He’s very talented, but as I’ve said before, he only had one time the whole season where everything went well (the tart challenge), and I just had the feeling that he wasn’t going to have everything go well here. As soon as I saw how he was making his top tier, I knew it wasn’t going to be his day. And not working the cherries right was the knockout blow. That said, he attempted a lot of cool stuff, and I enjoy his decorating skills! Meadow, very hard to believe she was one of the youngest bakers on the show. Great poise, talent and resourcefulness. I would guess that if she was on the show 2 years in the future, she would easily be the winner. Add 2 years of experience to what she made tonight and I think it would be amazing. The challenge for this finale was decent. I liked how they tied it to a kid’s school activity, and it did open the opportunity for some good creativity. overall, a good season! The kids were likable, maybe not as super-skilled as the promos tried to paint, but good enough to enjoy seeing what they produced. Looking forward to the next season!

    Actually, Aiden from season 3 was the only winner to have been in the bottom once during the season. Hollis, Rebecca, Linsey and Natasha all were never in the bottom. (I guess Linsey was technically in the bottom once, but it was the semifinal where they picked Alex as the winner and then had the three remaining bakers as the bottom; but Linsey was clearly not in danger of being eliminated in that episode.)

    Interesting perspective. I actually feel like they’ve heard some criticisms that not enough boys do well on the show, so they have been trying to engineer the cast to get better boys on the show. So far this season, it feels like they’ve made mostly the right choices for elimination.

    That I’m not sure. There have been kids in previous seasons who made cookies who had extra dough which came in handy. At a minimum these kids have probably watched the previous seasons and knew having extra dough would be a good idea.

    Forgot to mention: the twist seemed kind of pointless in this episode.

    I enjoyed this challenge, but I do kind of wonder if the kids were coached on how to do it. That they all did the same thing in using stencils seemed unlikely without some coaching. Congrats to Davis, that Mona Lisa was seriously impressive! That said, I did think that Meadow should have won given that hers tasted better and met the challenge of being a puzzle a little better (IMHO). And yes, while her whipped cream and his ice cream were extra, hers was more successful there, too. All that said, I don't have a problem with Davis winning this. It was pretty obvious that Jaxon was going to lose when his cookies didn't work out as a puzzle. When he was trying to trim the cookies, you could see that it was way too crumbly. And yes, his decorating was a bit of a disaster. I wasn't a big fan of Paige at the start of the season, but she has grown on me. I think Davis will win the whole thing, although I think Meadow might be the better baker. Would be fine with any of these three winning, tho Paige is the dark horse.

    It's actually $25,000.

    I’m not saying they need to do anything different. But for example, the kids in season 2 didn’t have so many examples to get ideas from as they do in season 6 (I’m assuming all the current kids probably watched most of the prior seasons before coming to the show). And as a viewer, as soon as the kids got the taco challenge, I had a pretty good sense of how all the kids would do their imposters.

    You could argue that Abby in Season 4 had a better looking cake, but Linsey won because hers tasted better.

    One comment about the Imposters challenge. It does seem like with this being the 6th season with this challenge, a lot of the ideas of how to make things (like using crumbled brownies for ground beef, shredded coconut with green food coloring for lettuce, blondies for turkey/chicken, cake pop shapes for fried items, etc) are pretty well-known now. I remember watching past seasons and feeling amazed at the creativity, but this episode felt a little too familiar.

    So far, Davis does seem like he's head and shoulders ahead of the other kids in terms of his creativity and thinking, but it also seems like he hasn't had a week where everything really came together (other than maybe the tart challenge). So I don't think it's quite the slam-dunk for him to win. Like we've seen in previous seasons, semi-finals have had some front-runners stumble and get eliminated. That said, it sounds like with the nature of next week's challenge being so focused on decorating, it does seem likely he gets through to the finals.

    Wasn’t able to watch this week’s episode until tonight. While I appreciate that Davis had the best taco shell and creatively attempted the most things, honestly I didn’t think his was the best “imposter”. For me, Meadow had the most successful imposter, followed by Paige. Jaxon and Nyah both definitely struggled the most, and while I agree with Nyah’s elimination, I wouldn’t have been surprised if it was Jaxon who was sent home. As far as the challenge overall, this was a pretty good one, although this is supposed to be a baking championship, not a deep-fry championship.
