Emily Blunt brings Big Brother edge to The Great British Bake Off on SNL

Meet Brielle and Pasley, two reality show competitors who weren’t able to get on Big Brother, so they brought Big Brother to the show they did make: PBS baking competition The Great British Bake Off. Host Emily Blunt and cast member Cecily Strong brought these characters to life in a new Saturday Night Live sketch this weekend – and they also brought the drama. 

While the show’s hosts remained composed as they judged the competitors, these women – from “the only town who unanimously voted for the Brexit” – heckled the other contestants and even broke away for their own reality show-style confessional.

“We bake just as well as we shag,” they said. “Yeah, quick and lazy.” Soon, The Great British Bake Off dissolved when the contestants realized there wasn’t any prize money.

Watch the sketch below.
