Shiro is just one of those people who’s irritatingly good. He tends to come in 2-3rd most of the time anyway unless he has a really bad mistake/gets badly distracted at an awful moment. He’s also incredibly consistent, so any challenge that says make X number of something, he excels.
When Keith’s flavor combinations actually work and end up with something both unique and tasty, it works well for him. He’s one of those people who gets high marks for at least being creative and not under doing/overdoing the flavors. Also, when time is crunched, he’s very good at keeping focused. Very hard to knock off his game.
About 1/3rd of the time, Lance’s strange hodge podge of maybe-it’s-real-maybe-it’s-pinterest-bullshit information turns out to be absolutely vital in the technical bakes. His tendency to push ahead in what seems like a mistake also keeps him from hesitating and restarting and using up all his time. His bakes themselves also tend to have really good timing.
Pidge overextends, but she does so because she’s really that good. Her stuff is gorgeous and imaginative and, most importantly, incredibly structurally sound. When she gets it all on, it’s always a sigh to behold and has won her the showstopper more than once.
As for Hunk - c’mon, it’s Hunk. He’s just really goddamn good at this. Wins star baker basically every third week
