The Real Pod: The Great Kiwi Bake Off and the truth about toilet plume

The Real Pod assembles to dissect the week in reality television and real life, with special thanks to Nando’s.

Another week, another new reality show to pour into our gullets like a jug of mirror glaze over a too-warm cake. The Great Kiwi Bake Off is back for another season, returning to the original 90-minute format that fans know and love. There’s Trev with the delicate lamington balls, Sue with the “moist” feedback and Ana with a fridge horror show. There’s also no Extra Slice, which makes us very sad because we love Chris Parker.

Beyond that, there’s also a lot of Real News. Erin and Zac tied the knot, Lily McManus has been spotted on Instagram in heavy TV makeup (ahem) and we have all the great new announcements for TVNZ’s 2020 season (Art Green as The Bachelorette NZ host?!?!?). Oh, and the worst episode of New Zealand’s Next Top Model yet. It’s The Real Pod: really.
