We all react differently under pressure. Some of us whistle loudly, others sing, and then there’s Karen.
On the season premiere of The Great British Bake Off, Karen introduced a new coping strategy for those fraught moments: kicking back with a packet of crisps.
When everyone around her was pretty much freaking out, Karen was, well, munching on some crisps.
We like your style, Karen.
When all around you lose their heads… eat crisps. #GBBO pic.twitter.com/ChPRL7dhza

Seemingly Karen had finished her first task before her fellow contestants. So she took a little break to have a well-earned snack, much to the delight of enthralled viewers.
Karen just casually whipping out 24 perfectly identical biscuits and then taking a break with a packet of crisps whilst everyone else stresses out. Already investing all my time in her! #GBBO

Munching crisps whilst everyone else is still working. Absolute wind-up merchant. I want her to win already #GBBO #BakeOff

Some viewers are already hailing Karen the “icon” of this season. And, tbh, we can totally see it.

The lady who just sat down and whipped out a bag of crisps is my spirit animal #GBBO

One even went so far as to say that Karen’s snack time was his favourite moment of this season.
