Yesterday was the first episode of The Great Canadian Baking Show and it was really good! I giggled when one of the contestants kept throwing flour around and Dan jumped back and made a remark about not wearing white around him. hehe. I really enjoyed it. Dan is so kind to the nervous bakers. He seemed to really enjoy all the taste testing, yum.

Press/Video: Dan Levy and Julia Chan dish on ‘The Great Canadian Baking Show’

Fans of The Great British Bake Off take note – Canada’s version of the hit baking series, The Great Canadian Baking Show, is here and it is just as sweet as the original. Ahead of the show’s premiere on Nov. 1 (CBC), the show’s hosts, Dan Lev yand British-Canadian actress Julia Chan(Saving Hope), dropped by the Chatelaine Kitchen to spill some juicy secrets from the set. Read on to find out what you can expect to see in the Canadian baking tent.

The Canadian version boasts the best group of bakers yet. Julia and Dan both agree that the Canadian version of the hit series has the most positive and skilled group of bakers yet. Dan, 34, confessed, “The bakers were lovely people who were just there to have a good time, to test their skills, and to learn something,” he said, adding, “I do feel like the Canadian cast is arguably the best cast of bakers I’ve ever seen, out of all the franchises!”

Unlike other reality shows that are often rooted in negativity and strategy, The Great Canadian Baking Show aims to foster a supportive environment. Julia, 34, pointed out that the show’s positivity is timely, “We’re living in a bit of a tricky time right now and the [show] came at just the right moment, you know. It’s such a relief to watch.” She continued, “The main goal is just to get that bake done, as good as you can get it. Each competition isn’t against your fellow baker. You’re not competing for a big money prize, you’re just there because you love it.”

The winner of the competition show gets a fancy cake plate, which isn’t quite the same as The Great British Bake Off ’s winning prize of $100,000. But that doesn’t seem to bother any of the Canadian competitors, Dan pointed out, “They’re competing for a cake plate. You’re attracting a different kind of person; a kind of person who’s in it for the experience, not the fame or money. All these people should be put on pedestals just for how good they are as people and as bakers.”

Julia added: “All of these bakers are home bakers, they’re doing it for fun. The show is really such a hopeful spin on the reality-format of competition shows.”

Julia used to make sponge cakes with her mother but hilariously confessed that she would garnish them with woodsy materials she’d foraged. Dan confessed he’s never been much of a baker, “I’m not skilled with anything with my hands, be it origami or baking. It’s too precise. I panic when there’s lists and numbers, so I’m better as a consumer.”

Press: Why John Doyle Calling Dan Levy “Fey” Is Homophobic and Offensive

In a review of The Great Canadian Baking Show, Globe and Mail TV critic John Doyle criticized Dan Levy’s “feyness”—and that is not OK.

The first time it happened was in the fourth grade. His name was Miguel. He was a year older than me and he poked his head out of a wooden fort near where I was playing on the school yard.

“Do you want to be a girl?” he shouted at me.

I was stunned. I don’t even remember what I said, if I responded at all. But, from his snicker, I knew that what he said was meant as a jab. That he had sniffed out something in me that wasn’t like the other boys and he thought that was bad.

Miguel would not be the last. I grew up in rural hockey country, where even the most minor gender transgressions were noticed, noted and, more often than I’d have liked, criticized out loud.

Most gay men know the pain of being called a fag. But we also know that prejudice often comes with a softer touch. It comes coded, or posed as a question.

On Tuesday, it came coded as “fey.”

The Great Canadian Baking Show premiered on Wednesday and in his review of the new series, Globe and Mail television critic John Doyle called the show’s co-host, Dan Levy, “fey.” In speaking about the show’s judges, Vancouver pastry chef Bruno Feldeisen and Montreal’s Rochelle Adonis, Doyle was unimpressed. “Both are a tad stiff and nervous and little winded—at any moment, they know they might be swarmed by the feyness of Levy and the tweeness of Chan.”

Levy responded with a statement on Instagram that reads, “As a proud gay man, being criticized for my “feyness” (defined by Merriam-Webster as “campy” and “precious”) in today’s Globe and Mail struck me as offensive, irresponsible, and homophobic.”

It’s hard to read Doyle’s words as anything but a criticism of Levy’s gayness—a criticism that he’s not just being gay, but *acting* gay, and that will be too overwhelming or too distracting for the viewers of the show.

I shouldn’t have to say that it’s homophobic to suggest a TV host is too gay, but here we are.

Full disclosure: I’ve known Levy for nearly a decade, since we were both—to use Doyle’s word—young “fey” men in Toronto. And yes, I take issue with that word being thrown in his direction because we are friends. But I’d take issue if we weren’t, too. I take issue with it because every gay man has been called “too gay” in coded language, whether the word used is “effeminate,” “flamboyant” or “fey,” only it’s usually not in a public forum, but in the workplace, at home—or in the school yard.

Whether the word was slung with that intent or not doesn’t matter now that it has been used. Even if the motivation wasn’t malicious, it points to an unconscious bias. Doyle sees men like Levy as “fey” and feels entitled to describe them as such. That’s a problem. What’s important to recognize here is that there are some words that carry perilous weight when you pair them with a gay man’s name.

Levy’s statement was tough to read. But what really got me was the last part: “To all the “fey” kids/people out there who read that and were made to question whether their “feyness” is deserving of criticism, it’s not. You are loved for who you are.”

That’s the part I want you to read, circle, highlight and read again. Because as far as we’ve come, there’s always going to be a little “fey” boy or “butch” girl on the school yard who needs to know not to listen to the Miguel, or the John Doyle, in their life.
