a) Jim is gonna go tonight
there is no b)
drop your Apprentice guff in here, eh
Unless Glasses-Guy absolutely fucks up again. He is also on thin ice.
that would be entertaining
so that, like a stopped clock, you will eventually be right.
Susan and Jim have their annoying qualities for sure but she's easily the most intolerable contestant.
If not her then Natasha or Zoe as I don't think either has a realistic chance of winning so shouldn't be making it to the interview stage.
she was being assertive and shit, no?
Despite being assertive, she was still definitely shit.
I think she's actually one of the strongest candidates. Her failures have pretty much all come from the others not treating her with respect because of her age, but she's clearly a bit sharp. She's also a young entrepreneur, like Sir Alan, and he's weak for personal prejudice over reason (like getting rid of Glenn because he dared to be an engineer).
anyone that can exert that much social control just from their own massive confidence should be given the job immediately. you bend to his will because you know he's the best. that guy will go far.
but who the hell would want to work with someone who will potentially stitch you up, given the opportunity? its all in the eyes - this chump is bad news
of which he has buckets. you're telling me that doesn't go down well in business?
Sugar has his card marked, for sure
what, they're going to find out that he's extremely confident and therefore a natural leader and influencer? there's nothing sinister about him
He's a massive bullshitter. If he wasn't charming and Irish he'd never get away with half of what he has.
It's between Tim and Susan. Melody is too manipulative, you can tell Sir Alan doesn't trust her.
he playz on that shit. I am not impressed. Then again, I am not an airhead like Susan, or that Orlando Bloom character who bombed out last week.
He's a charmless man doing an impression of a charming one.
It's awfully confusing.
He'll be the ruler of some small country in Eastern Europe, posters of his face Obama style adorning the streets, statues in his image, national anthem singing his praise. Watch this space.
ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON
names, cba tbh
Fuck off. FUCK OFF RIGHT NOW.
Icarus raises a good point.
so i can bully her to tears and get her fired if we loose
He means well, bless 'im
This is in danger of becoming my favourite ever Apprentice episode. Not quite reached tour guide episode status yet but I've easily laughed more than any episode so far this series.
his biccies are boring
'I think we should definatly do a roleplay'
YES PLEASE. I'll have her biscuit.
oi darnt loike at
A: In Heaven
But the more that I look at the word biscuit, the more it looks like it's really strangely spelled?
AHHHAHAHAHA i spat out my tea
this roleplay might be the worst thing in the history of the apprentice
I literally couldn't cope.
They were told by the producers to do something completely mental cos they're absolutely creaming the opposition in every possible way. The roll play craziness is just there to make the playing field more (superficially) level.
I feel the same watching this programme as I do The Office Series 2. Whether it was planned or not doesn't really matter, it's just painful!
OH GOD THEY'RE DOING IT AGAIN
That was one of the worst things I've ever seen in my life.
They're still gonna romp it.
If they lose that is.
DO NOT DO MORE ROLE PLAY FOR FUCK'S SAKE
fuck my ears and eyes
Is one of the sweetest things I've ever seen
Jim IS everything to everyone.
firefox, you have decieved mee
BOW DOWN HATERS. BOW. DOWN.
GET IN THERE HELEN! MAJOR FIST PUMP!
if so, told ya so
suck on it, assholes. clearly he is the best.
It never feels like these business transactions actually happen in the real world.
I bet Asda just thought "Fuck it. Let's pretend to order A SHITLOAD."
And surely the answer is no. Which rather undermines the whole shebang.
After the magazine episode two weeks ago, the guy from Carat confessed that he'd placed a huge order with one team just because he didn't like Jim's pitch for the others.
can you say ROLEPLAY
I don't see how Helen could possibly not win
just cos asda wants to pump its fat mums and fat kids with sugar
They better not touch a hair on Tom's head.
She's like a broken fax machine.
Karen tried to hate on Jim for dreaming big and pitching movie tie-ins etc. to Asda.
Then Asda went and ordered 800,000 units and the rights to sell it exclusively.
Now do you understand?
also Helen is kinda good whatever i guess blah blah blah
She seems quite nice. I liked it when she said she felt for the other team.
You can pout like that alllllll dayy long
and Melody was spouting racist nonsense, I'd still want to make it wit Melody.
I say God Damn.
you make a valid point.
Not a fan of Zoe at all, but enjoying watching her have a massive go at Melody, who I can't stick in the slightest. And they're both distracting me from the fact that Susan's pretty abrasive.
You leave Tom alone or else.
I don't see how anyone couldn't be.
Melody sounds like David from Psychoville
Shit is gon' get real. Can't wait.
YES YES YES YES
I'VE BEEN WAITING SO MANY WEEKS FOR THIS MOMENT.
Saw that u-turn coming a mile off.
is zoe wearing.
looks like shes been in a wind tunnel, her hair and outfit is swinging to the left
her fucking face is irritating. looks like she's been in a construction accident
This week more than most.
I can respect that.
But let's not get all Pride Of Britain here.
only just watched on iplayer today hence the old bump
Despite her horrendous voice, I really warmed to her as a person in this episode, especially the two fingers gesture at the phone. Melody does need taking down a peg or two (any excuse to resurrect a classic thread - http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/3204518 - love the fact that the OP is by Keogh from DiS football, never noticed that before - though I do like Jamie, he's a good guy). Meanwhile back at the Apprentice thread....
...Zoe did deserve to get the boot. Made too many fundamental errors, and did let the fact she disliked Melody (even though it was fair enough because she really is a dislikeable human) cloud her judgement - something she has done at least once before.
Thing is, Big Gay Al isn't looking for someone to go for a pint with, he's looking for someone to start a business with. And that wasn't going to be Zoe and he knew that from day one.
Susan definitely dodged Alain Prost in his voiture rapide today, though was actually quite canny in her task duties and boardroom demeanour, fair play. I assume next week is the last week before interviews? From the preview of next week it seems Natasha and Susan are on the same team. Now this is very surprising. I would have thought they would have been on opposite teams so Sugartits could have sacked one or the other depending on who lost the task.
I would be truly shocked if either Natasha or Susan didn't go next week though, so their team must surely lose. Though to be honest if Helen doesn't win this series, she's gonna have to have done something seriously wrong in the next show so perhaps it doesn't matter who the other four are.
Saying that, Jim is definitely a decent outside bet, especially after his £800,000,000,000 sale and if Tom completely aces it next week then he could be back in with a shout. Also, as has become quite clear from the last couple of weeks, Ally S massively bums Melody so its definitely not over yet.
All to play for!
I suppose there's a slight chance she isn't such a self-important cunt in person, but it seems unlikely.
Everyone bar Helen should just go home. WELL looking forwarding to Helen merking Melody next week.
I really can't understand where this is coming from.
you didn't get the feeling she'd sell you if given the opportunity.
Do we even know that that's taking place this year? They aren't going to employees of Alan's company, I can see that round being replaced with something more creative/business partner-centric.
Hate looking at her, hate listening to her. Horrible woman in every sense.
Sexy???? You people need help.
"cannew not unnerstand what I'm sayin'?"
This week she disses the market research when her 'new popcorn' splodge thing fails to impress. Says 6 out of millions of people doesn't really count. Whereas in Paris she thought the car seat/back pack thingy was a piece of poop because a few people said it wasn't good as no one drives in Paris. Look at the cars woman!! They're everywhere!! But no, back in the boardroom she banged on about that market research as being a very good and logical reason for not going with that particular product.
Hammer attack man in Luther should whack her on the bonce very hard.
