'6 million cats of which 'stutter stutter' the majority er most are from London' Quite possibly the worst opening line in history
i've got a bet that Jo will cry in every single episode...she really does need to get a grip.
Both presentations were god awful (admittedly, Nargis took the 1st prize sticker). Her lines like 'and then we'll discuss how many you want to buy,' I mean the cheek of it. The kitten opener made me burst out laughing too with the rep guy just like 'thank you for that?!' Mani didn't do much better either with his 'we hold these truths to be self-evident' - its a charity calender, not the declaration of independence! He was so staged too with the calender guy saying something and he's like 'oh really hahaha!' (winning the world's worst fake laugh award). He hyped his abilities a bit too much didn't he - I could have done a better job than he did, despite having done only 1 proper 15min presentation in my lifetime against his 'I do this everyday for a living!).
I like Jo as, like Sir Alan said, she has got spirit (I think he really likes her, cause you can see in his eyes he wants to smile and laugh when she goes off on one). But is it me or are half the potentials big cry-babies? I get that they want it so bad, but do they not appreciate that Sir Alan wants someone who can close firm business deals and negotiate, and not someone who will burst into tears at the first sign of panic. My personal fave was the chinese guy until he wept over a calender. I mean you've gotta put on a tough front. My money now is on (name eludes, he's the one who came out of the shower when Mani and Sayed were arguing and stopped it) - he's the best negotiator and keeps a level-head throughout.
I'd like to see Jo stay cause she's the only one out of Velocity who has more depth than a baby's play pool. She just needs to calm herself and realise the image she has to portray as a member of Sir Alan's company - i.e. stern and "non-get-one-overable." Hopefully, she'll rise up as a project leader next week.
Who should be next out? IMO Sayed - theres just a sense of sleaze to him I don't like - and I get the impression he tries to set up this aura of intelligence that isn't actually real (justifying the A-Team being quite the example). He also won't let anyone do their jobs with his opinions apparently always being right. And then he tries to make sure he's safe by saying to e.g. Ben - I did everything you asked didn't I etc. Get him fired!
I'm with you on Ansell (big black dude who came out of shower and sorted Syed row out) - he's great and has same humble origins as Sir Al. Read somewhere he used to be pro footballer? Also Paul who sold the single apple for a fiver.
Sad to say I think Jo will be out next week- she's project managing the task, which is a bit of a mistake on her part (should've let the dust settle a bit, all her team mates think she's a loon after the kittens task).
Mani - omg - the fakeness was unbelievable!
calendar dude: "we sell 60 trillion calendars per year"
mani: "oh WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW. [puffs as if the fact has actually made him sweat] Phew! Wow."
what a bell end!
Mani looks like he'd quite like to kill his entire team. Maybe papercut them to death with one of those god-awful calendars.
Jo's classic. I hate her so much, but I basically watch it for her. What was it she said she had wanted to do with the calendar? In the boardroom? It conflicted with the story about a little girl with cancer or whatever she'd discussed in the planning stages.
The naff leader for the girl's team (can't remember her name) deserved to get fired. You don't cut someone off if you're trying to sell them something, ESPECIALLY if you only have 2 more words to say before you were planning to let them talk. She was an idiot for taking the lawyer into the boardroom. Fair enough, take the psycho, but leaving yourself as the only otherwise weak candidate is stupid.
Worst.Pitch.Ever, I would of thought ater the first meeting one of them would f said 'Nargis that was awful, let me do it' Hell they would of done a better job. The Guys calender was the right idea, and cute but looked cheap. I actually quite liked the girls calender it was classy but nothing to do with kids!
The guys were hillarious afterwards taking the mick out of the girls, I mean they had pretty much lost that task intill the calender club results, and lost last weeks so why werre they being so cocky? The guys are going to have a real problem if the division that appeared in the lasty ep continues.
Does anyone know what road the house that The Apprentice contestants are staying in, is on? Sugar dubbed it 'England's finest road' or something.
Sugar said that the house next door to it went up for £45 mil. Waaaaaaaaaay too much for any house despite the area! IMO, the house that they are staying in is nice on the inside i guess but looks really ugly from the outside!
Oh sweet Jesus - Jo MUST go! She's insane - I'd give it only a couple of weeks until she finally flips and murders them all in their beds with a hatchet!
Paul should win in my opinion, for the sole reason that when the rest of them are spouting the same old clichés about "vision, teamwork, dynamism" in the meetings and the sales pitches, you can just see him sitting there with this incredulous look on his face.
Nargis deserved to get fired, because she was taking all the responsibility and wasnt really letting anyone else do anything. And she was bossy.
to be honest, they're all pretty much useless at the moment - when it gets down to teams of about 4 you actually get to see who is good at their job
I'm not being big headed, but did anyone else think "I could do a much better job" while watching Nargis's pitch. I mean, we did GCSE presentations way better than that. She's a professional woman, how could she be so rude to the people she was supposed to impress!!
Oh, and for some reason I like Jo, although her emotional outbursts are a bit embarrasing.
i love it!!! i pleased with who went last week, her sales pitch was totally awful, i coudln't believe how rude she was!!!
am watching the new episode now...think jo's going to be team leader!!! god shes being very 'tough' and is going on about it loads!!!
Jo is so annoying, she just talks and talks...
I hope she's fired.
so karen got the boot - a shocker huh. Out of the three, she was the last I expected to leave but then again she did develop a bit of an attitude in the boardroom there. Roll on Alexa's PM attempt next week...
