The Truth About Maisam From Great British Bake Off Season 13
Season 13 of “The Great British Bake Off” premiered as planned on September 13, despite the devastating death of Queen Elizabeth II. Unlike other British channels, Channel 4 decided to keep airing its regular programming during the mourning period, letting GBBO fans get to know the new contestants, including Maisam Algirgeet.
18-year-old Maisam Algirgeet, the youngest contestant of this season, works as a sales assistant and is an interior design student at The Manchester Metropolitan University. Originally from Libya, she came to the U.K. at the age of nine and can speak English, Arabic, Amazigh, Spanish, and Turkish.
Algirgeet enjoys photography and travel, and posts shots of various cities’ nature and architecture on her Instagram. She is fascinated by the scientific approach to baking and often finds herself redoing a recipe until she gets the chemistry just right. As for getting a spot in the series, she wrote in an Instagram post, “3 year old Maisam is dreaming.”
