    Well he is actually. The strongest candidate this series, and a part-time wrestler, can you ask for any more for an alpha male?!

    Far be that from alpha shark the reflection of perfection.
    He manages to get away with arrogance because in his case it's clear he's an alpha shark lol

    Wtf was Adam thinking then when Lord Sugar asked him that question?

    Promote YOUR own qualities, don't try and point out your rivals' flaws, that's just a known thing not to do. He didn't mention any good qualities which he has which are good for a business partnership and just for that, i think Lord Sugar will definitely be more influenced to fire Adam, if he wasn't going to before.
    Yeah I totally agree, he completely missed the point of the question. It shows that he can't sell himself which is a necessity in any interview like scenario

    Because Ricky Martin is the name of the guy who sang "Livin la vida loca"

    I despair. What do they teach the kids in music classes these days?

    Someone needs to shop Apprentice Ricky's face into that video. Even badly done, like on You're Fired

    Apprentice is my favourite show ever, even if i have an exam the next day i still watch it no matter what. I want Tom to win purely because he knows what he is doing but Ricky's enthusiasm is really great. Really liked Nick but now he bores me and Jade should win it for the girls. Did you watch Apprentice your fired i loved the montage for Ricky and Adam who knew they were such GOOD friends.
    Favourite person on Apprentice apart from Jim

    People need to start using their brains instead - the winner of the competition is not about who has the best performace over the 12 weeks but the one whos business plan in the best.

    Sir Alan Sugar is investing £250,000 and he will look at the person with the best business plan so he would expect a return on that money
    Was thinking the same reading some of the comments, didn't Tom last year have something like 7 consecutive losses or something and I don't remember him being the standout candidate throughout the process, but in the end his business plan was the strongest, so he won and I imagine that is what will happen again this year. The 12 weeks seem to be more the qualification stages to the real interview at the end and I can see any of them winning it as we don't know what their business plans are of course.

    I'd say in the process, Ricky has been the standout candidate and perhaps Nick has seemed like the weakest as he seems to have been in the background a bit, but I wouldn't be surprised if its the latter that wins in the end as he does seem very intelligent and being a technology entrepreneur, who knows he could have some amazing plan ready to pull out the bag!

    Adam deserved that place in the final so much more.
    On effort and adaptability maybe, but on merit no. He was very good at selling and did extremely well in the whole process, but he was always a bit out of his depth and he was like a lower league team getting to the cup semi finals, did brilliantly to get there, but he was never gonna make it the whole way tbh and I'd imagine his business plan would have been weak compared to the others.

    Jade needs to do it for the girls- rising against the blatant misogyny that exists in our society and all that!

    I hope that's a joke seeing that in series 5 the last 4 were girls. also 3/7 of the winners have been girls.

    You're a misandrist, wanting the men to fail just because they're men - you made no mention of why you think Jade should win on merit

    May I just point out that in the teaser of next episode on You're Fired Lord Sugar pointed to his right, which is likely to be Tom (according to my vague memory, or whoever is on the right), and said "You're gonna be my business partner"
    Well THANK YOU for potentially ruining it for me. Please use spoiler tags in future.
