    “I don’t know, grape?”

    Chris Morocco is a psychopath confirmed

  5. Jack Fruth says:

    PIZZA ROLLS! They dont even have real cheese! That could actually get back to the name and give her a chance to really make something gourmet!!

    Hey Claire. Please make pop tarts. I know you could make them so much better.

  8. Jessica Duraj says:

    claire is so talented and we all love seeing her test her limits, but this was clearly an impossible task and seeing how upset she was to be making it was sad 🙁 please let her use her talent for recipes shes inspired by!! also, let claire travel for episodes- learning to make pastries in france or italy would be so cool!!

  9. Kshitij Kumar says:

    I don’t think anybody wanted poprocks at the cost of Claire’s sanity.

    I was today years old when I learned blue raspberry is a flavor mix of blueberry and raspberry not some mystical blue species of raspberry

    Oh god, tell me you didn’t-

    like, I like to see Claire struggle, like working hard to climb a mountain and then WOW she gets to the top, not like handing her a shovel and directions through the earth to China.

    love Claire, she’s so clever, works so hard, but BA, this one was a little cruel.

  12. Anna Ready says:

    “Sounds dangerous” “I’m not comfortable doing that” “I don’t wanna do this, it’s a bad idea” “I feel not listened to”

    I don’t want to seem too heavy handed, but those quotes are directly from Claire in the video and they really aren’t said for any sort of comedic effect. She was serious and these things made me not be able to finish the video.

    Ths vibe of this video was totally off. I didn’t like seeing Claire trying to mask her obvious discomfort with the project for the sake of putting on a good show. We want to see her solve healthy realisitic challenges and feel satisfied and not slog through 2 days doing a project she feels uncomfortable or even unsafe doing. She should feel happy and not demoralized from having to make content she isn’t happt with just to satisfy BA staff/viewers.
    Do better, BA!

    • BlackPhoenix00280 says:

      I picked up on that vibe a few episodes ago, and it’s only gotten worse. In the starburst one, I think, she was having breakdowns and even mentioned to the camera “the parts I know you want to film (mental breakdowns), I don’t want to be on camera”. Since it gained fame, this series has started to take a turn (and it makes me so sad to see the difference in Claire), and it’s now feeling very exploitative.
      I hope BA does better by their employee.

    Raise your hand if you loved Claire enough to NOT ask for Pop Rocks 😉

  14. Jorge Domínguez says:

    “Do you want me to make a bomb? On the world trade center?” Damn Claire xD

    • liloddbit says:

      Their office/kitchen is in the One World Trade Center. It wasn’t just a random statement. It would be literally that.

    Claire: this should be easy (a 40min video)
    Claire: I refuse to do this (a 20min video)

  17. LionHeartZ says:

    Next time…”gourmet pastry chef makes…herself a cup of tea and relaxs”

  18. Mina M says:

    It hurts my heart to see Claire so demoralised from the beginning, it usually hits mid way through when the process is failing her – it like sucked all the optimism out of her ? our home girl still tried her best though ❤️ Edit: Chris also seemed genuinely upset she had to do it too

  19. eva lmb says:

    “How are you doing mentally?”
    “Much better. I had lunch.”

    Same, Claire. Same.
