Why do they always seem so normal on You're Fired? They're in the task and boardroom, and they're nearly all *****y, trying to rip each other up, cold heartless business(wo)men ... then they're fired and, a few months down the line, having a laugh and a joke. "Yeah, that guy I tore a new anus into and tried to get fired? He was all right really!"
Because they have no competition after they've been fired. Obviously I've never been in situation such as The Apprentice but imagine having 7/8 other people (in your team) that you've got to show you're better than whilst also trying to work with. It's must be a nightmare. That's when the gloves come off (except for Edna) and you just have to roll with the punches (:facepalm:).

Why is Edna even on the show? "I work in HR" ooh wow, what does that involve, filing away everyone's holiday request forms and booking the DJ for the Christmas party? Hardly business acumen is it, and it showed.

They lost because that magazine guy played the ridiculous "racial discrimination" card, typical miserable politically-correct left-wing sod lol. People were more interested in the guy's app which was much better (though admittedly not as popular abroad probably) as demonstrated by better downloads at the actual event.

Was obvious who was going to win; they always make it look as if one team will obviously win and the other team always does; and then when they read out the results the team that wins is always read out second lol, was soo obvious the girls were going to win when the first 3 hour figures or whatever favoured the boys; stupid BBC editing lol.
The boys' app was better in almost every way - "Ampi Apps" is a horrendous name. However, they didn't realise the meaning of the word "global". It would have been very easy for them to add some more foreign accents - French, Russian, German and hey presto, worldwide entertaining app. The whole racial stereotypes speech annoyed me so much, it's called humour ffs! There's a difference between derogatory stereotype and cultural identity - like wearing a cork hat or being associated with sheep. Not offensive.

lol, I wanted to punch him in the face the whole way through, glad he go fired.

Though the team leader of the girls that night (can't mind the name) was even more annoying...'I was trained by Al Gore, and personally tutored by the Dalai Lama".....gfto.lol

I think Leon has been very unlucky these two weeks ending up in the boardroom. I'd say that despite that he is going to go all the way, I can see a final between Jim and Leon.

all the girls look plastic, not really offering much... jim looks like a fighter, vincent will go quickly, tom is a difficult one to call as a task will either suit him perfectly or go badly for him... he would also be the biggest risk to go into business with but as he is an inventor may have the best ideas potentially...

I don't see what you're talking about, maybe you're right to some extent but it is far from noticeable. Today's episode was pretty good. I would never have predicted Ampi Amp was going to win.



Agreed. I would have been okay with her if she was good at her supposed profession, but as a psychologist she would know how to lead people and how to talk to people, but she comes across terribly as a leader, losing my respect for her.
Hmmm, dont know a few people have noticed it though. Im not a film critic or anything but i really did notice it.
I have to say though they have made the apprentice more entertaining, with all the *****ing and crazy characters.

Didn't watch it today! but Glenn <3
Pfft I thought you was a dedicated watcher! Well he came up with a decent idea, but they lost and they all kind of blamed him for coming up with an idea that wasn't "global" when they knew they were aiming/selling to a global market. He ended up in the boardroom at the end but was lucky. He's going soon though!

The girls are really bad this year. I can only name Susan, Edna and Melody and none are particularly proficient and the others even less so. I'm surprised by how bad they are. Usually it's a fair mix between the sexes. However, this might just be because we don't know them well enough. If they're in the boardroom next week I'm sure some forerunners will become clear

Edna's presentation was awful! I was cringing in my seat! I can't believe how anyone could think that that's ok! The boy's on the other hand was awesome. Shame the race card got pulled on them otherwise they definitely would have had it even though they had a less 'global' brand.

Yeah, the lip biting was a lot cuter in the programme because he was doing it out of worry - in the still it just looks pervy lol :p:

Melody with her fake accent. Trying too hard to hide her freshie accent. :nothing:

The Chinese girl Susan is :sexface:
I agree that Melody's accent is annoying, but you'd have to be pretty retarded to simply equate her with trying to hide a "freshie" accent just b/c she is Asian :rolleyes:
