The contestants are filmed for 16 hours each day of the competition. Two judges choose a star of the week and eliminate one of the contestants. In the end of the show, the judges use one of the bakers out of three left.

- In the 4th season of the project Deborah made a mistake while cooking and used Howard’s custard and not her own. Judges paid attention to that while making their choice.
- In the 5th season of the show, Iain Watters had troubles with his dish – his ice cream melted without visible reasons. He got frustrated and threw it into a rubbish bin. It provoked his elimination and the viewers’ anger afterwards.
