Paul totally crumbled in the interviews! Did you notice his face?
I was disappointed that Ansell went I think he would make a really great Apprentice.
Ruth was not good in the interviews, she is not likeable and I don't think her sales techniques are any more sophisticated than Paul's (plus she does wierd things with her tongue).
After the interviews I'm backing Michelle to win, I think that she has a good set of all-round basic skills. I was very impressed at how she keeps her cool in one to one discussions.
I wanted Ansell and Michelle to be in the final. I thought it would be Paul, but can now see why he got fired. Bit of a twonker really! I hate Ruth, she does my head in. So Michelle to win!! Woooo!
Why is it only people who havn't got a decent educational background that think they have worked to get where they are and think that their upbringing shows determination? Surely getting a decent education and qualifications is just as commendable providing you have worked for it - I'm taking about people who don't find it easy but work to get the grades they do, such as me - What is wrong with wanting to go to uni to get a degree then working afterwards? I mean Paul sort of got slated for this in SAS saying you have only worked for 3 years. Yes, but after he has got an education, what is wrong with that? I mean he even mentioned contigency planning in the episode!
I just mentioned this because Michelle said something in the car at the end with Ruth about GCSE's etc and how they have worked for it more than anyone else. I just find this ignorant.
P.s. Told you it would be a Michelle Vs Ruth final, not that I'm happy, would rather be Michelle Vs Paul, but never mind, I might go down to the bookies and place £10 on Michelle to win if they let me lol
Sugar picked up on the 3 years thing because Paul claims to be god's gift to earth when in reality he has done **** all, which the interviewers picked up on. He kept saying that no other 26 yr old has achieved what he has, total *******s. And him travelling the world is hardly reason to win the job. He's been a cocky ******* all the way through and it's good to see him finally shown up. Though he brought a lot on himself because he totally crumbled in the interviews, but it shows you can't con experienced men.
I like Michelle, she showed a side of determination and ambition (nowt to do with gcse grades - infact you could see she was a bit embrassed about that and having to work as a checkout girl) that she hasn't shown before. A bit cunning at times too but not bad. The final will really put her to the sword though because she has to walk the walk on her own and has no one or no piece of paper to hide behind. I think she'll just pull through over Ruth's in your face attitude.
To be honest, I was a lot more surprised that Ruth got so few GCSEs. The way I understand it, Michelle had to leave school or something to get jobs to support her family after family members had died. I admire that.
i want michelle to win it but ruth will. ansell got fired i dont believe it he woz so how do i say it NICE. jus hope ruth rots in hell
OOOO my predictions are still going strong... out once or twice, but still backing Michelle to win (as I was from the first week)
yes i am also impressed with fluffys prediction,to be honest i didnt see that happening ! michelle 2 win!
Also - reading comments made by Paul about him being a natural performer etc. Remember what happened to James last year... Paul = this years James...
whoever posted the spoiler was absolutely correct
Yes, But Jo isnt that bad to be honest, the fact is she riledpeople, and got there backs up.. she did have some very good ideas she ust wasnt the most likeable peson in the world.
Hey, I thought Ruth and Michelle gets to choose their team mates instead of having them already chosen. Have to agree with someone else who said that Michelle's got the best ones. Sayed is extremely passionate whilst Paul has been successful in every single task apart from the interview one. Both are dynamic people.
Who does Ruth have? Sharon and Jo (i think), but then Ruth being an excellent leader might pull through....
I'd far sooner have Jo on my team than Syed... Anyday! She might be a bit mental, but at least she's not a sycophantic liar!!!
