Janusz Domagala On The Great British Bake Off 2022
Janusz Domagala from The Great British Bake Off 2022 inherited his passion for baking from his mother. His mother always baked on a Saturday. Brighton The Inside reported, “Janusz continued this tradition when he moved away to go to university. He describes his baking style as “cartoon-like, colorful and camp” and he loves working Polish ingredients into British staples. His favorite flavors are ginger and chocolate.”
Janusz’s attempted two times before but failed to make it to the show.
He said during the interview that “The audition process was SO much fun and each year, I became more and more determined to prove to myself that I could do it. When I got the call to confirm my place this year I was convinced I was being pranked! It was the biggest moment of my life so far and I was SO proud of myself… but then the reality of what was coming sunk in and I put myself to work!”
Jokingly Janusz says that one thing that he can’t live without one utensil is his stand mixer. He would rather sacrifice his “partner, friends, and family before I let anything happen to my stand mixer!”
Janusz also told the outlet about the first week of filming. He added, “one was initially walking into the tent. It was when it hit me that I really was going to be a part of GBBO 2022. They warned us that every year one person cries when walking into the tent. I joked with the group about placing bets on who it would be, I just never expected it to be ME!”
Coming to his strength as a competitor, he says his forte is his flavor. He says, “I think I am quite an intuitive baker and I like deviating from recipes and seeing how far I can take things. My weakness is time management, as I am SO easily distracted!”
The 2022 season of The Great British Bake Off (GBBO) premieres on September 13 with 12 new faces who will attempt to impress the two judges, Dame Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood. The 2022 season is back to amuse baking enthusiasts with a new batch of baking enthusiasts amid the time sorrow of losing Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas are the hosts, and they give the program flavor. One contestant wins the title of Star Baker at the conclusion of the first 90-minute program, while another is eliminated.
Accompanying Janusz in this journey are music teacher Kevin Flynn, Rebs Lightbody a master’s student from Northern Ireland, nuclear scientist James, personal assistant to head teacher Janusz, 18-year-old contestant Maisam, and electronic engineer Abdul. The list also includes architectural assistant Maxy, 60-year-old IT manager Dawn Hollyoak, Angola-born Sandro, supermarket cashier Carole, cardiovascular research associate Syabria, and DIY enthusiast and former charity boss Will.

In late August, Simon celebrated Janusz’s birthday in Derbyshire visiting Chatsworth’s house. He wrote, “Gorgeous weekend celebrating my HunBuns birthday in Derbyshire visiting Chatsworth’s house, getting a Bakewell tart in Bakewell and getting into country life!”
Meanwhile, Janusz spoke with Brighton The Inside and mentioned his partner during the interview. He shared that he is currently living with Simon with their sausage dog, Nigel. The couple enjoys watching drag and he even bought a statue of Ru Paul.
Simon is very supportive of Janusz’s passion for baking. In fact, Simon applied for him each year without him knowing. Janusz told the news outlet, “My boyfriend Simon has been my biggest supporter. He’s pushed me to do things I doubted I could do and had trust in me throughout the whole process.”
