Tropical Pavlova
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Chigs: "Passion fruit. The uglier they look the riper they are inside, or so my grandmother used to tell me. The topping needs to be a nice contrast to the sweet meringue, so it should be a party on your tongue." 

Voice-over: "Guests at Chig's tongue party include a chantilly cream, chocolate shards, fresh mango, passion fruit and a blast of tropical mango coulis."

Prue Leith: "That looks amazing. I love the edge, just so casually, but elegantly swirled. Beautiful." 

Paul Hollywood: "Right, let's have a look, shall we? The knife just falls through." 

Chigs: "It's filled with chantilly cream and a mango and passion fruit coulis." 

Paul Hollywood: "It's lovely. Soft but stable middle and crunchy outside. I think it's wonderful. The acidity and the cream is just lovely. There's a nice marshmallow in that. It's stable enough to hold it. It's quite difficult to get that balance, but I think the way you've done the top and the chocolate, brilliant."

About The Great British Baking Show ™

The Great British Bake Off ™ (often abbreviated to Bake Off or GBBO and referred to in the United States as The Great British Baking Show ™) is a streamed British baking competition, in which a group of amateur bakers compete against each other in a series of rounds, hoping to impress the judges with their baking skills. One contestant in The Great British Baking Show ™ is eliminated in each round, and the winner is selected from the three contestants who reach the final.

The Great British Baking Show ™ operates on a weekly elimination process to find the best all-around baker from the contestants, who are all amateurs. In each episode, the bakers are given three challenges based on that week's theme: a signature bake, a technical challenge, and a show-stopper. The bakes are assessed by the judges who then choose a "Star Baker" for the week, and a contestant is also eliminated. In the final round, three bakers are left and a winner is chosen from the three.
