Really loved the first episode. What the hell is wrong with Raef hair

Most likely going to regret this over the coming weeks as she's bound to get on my nerves but I really fancied Lindi last night. She looked very hot in her dress at the dinner table

Who's Lindi? The one who started selling the fish straight away?? Impatient she may be, but yep, she's pretty hot.

I got dibs on the arrogant Irish lass ("I'd say I was the best salesperson in Europe")!

You do realise that this is going to become the next big fashion trend.  Just like Anniston hair did after Friends

Oh how I've missed The Apprentice, what a bunch of tossers!

Funny thing is that depsite the "I've never failed in my life" bollocks that De Lacy was parading around I actually felt the blame was somewhat unfairly laid on his shoulders truth be told. Two pricing mistakes, one because Raef had misidentified the product and the second because that's the price Alex gave him. Admittidly he should of spotted something was up with the Lobster pricing (he had the cost pricing afterall), that said they all should of, even Alex the team leader was in there like a rat up an aqueduct selling Lobster to that woman for £5 a piece.

Shagged himself up the bum in the board room at the end though, if he'd of curbed the talk about his qualifications and the "cultural divides" evident in the group and concentrated a little more on arguing his corner with regards to the pricing he might of stood a chance.

You can have her, just as long as I can have the tall, thin Redhead (Jenni, I think)  Hubba Hubba!!

If you watch The Apprentice without watching Your Fired, your missing half the show.  Think of it as a really good DVD extra.

I'm with you Jedi, that dudes hair was living a life of its own. "One should not let one's hair out of one's control"... I'd actually have preferred him to go rather than the "I got a B once" kid. But I didn't like either of them so I'm not overly bothered.

The other guy who did my head in was the idiot who went and sold all that fish for £50 right at the end (sorry, its too early for knowing names) It was that comment in the boardroom that had me laughing - "Aren't you my friend?" Its a competition not fucking summer camp! 
 
Really can't remember who Lindi is though...

Can't believe not one of them sought to question lobsters going for a fiver. If they were that cheap you would be getting them in the supermarkets.


If I had been asked to price up a lobster then I wouldn't have had a clue as I don't eat anything remotely associated with the sea  

However I have a vague idea that lobster is considered a delicacy and therefore expensive so someone who moves in the upper class circles should certainly have thought that.  Or any of them actually. 



Exactly - it's just basic common sense for people who are supposed to be fairly intelligent


It says a lot about the private school system that someone who is ashamed of getting a B in French still doesn't know that a lobster is meant to be expensive. I'd have thought most posh people would have known that,just like they should know that the French are famous for cheese so selling them supermarket cheddar is a bad idea.

The return of The Apprentice also see's the return of the consistantly entertaining organgrinder blog.  Ususally a very good read:

The blog on the Apprentice website is usually worth a read as well, probably even moreso this year as it is written by none other than that self-proclaimed superstar himself, Tre...

Agreed, what a prick. I was boiling with anger all the time he was on. Tre had a bad start for me last year, but i ended up really liking him, but no way will that happen with this idiot!! Really hope he gets fired soon.

This week...the Girl's...well...the less said the better at the moment. Seriously both teams are not great at negotiations. The guys offer £500 the guy says he usually pays £200. Then they just agree to £200. Didn't even try to bump it up a tiny bit. Last week they try to sell fish to people in a solicitors office!

Considering the girl's epic mupptery and toolism, I think the guys have gotten away with their lack of negotiating chutzpah.  Raef, it seems, wasn't that terrible.

I agree Raef wasn't as bad this week but I still want to take that stick out of his arse and beat him about the head with it.

Jenny was/is a bitch!

Do we think that Sugar's going to run out of ways to say "that was a complete disaster?" by the end of the series?

Wow. Sir Alan got it wrong this week I thought. Jenny packs some real venom! She truly is a snake. Again girls what a shambles! £4.99 to wash/dry/iron each item? Seriously? £5,000 as a total bill? Did they really think they spent that much on laundry? Where's the common sense?
Next week's should be more interesting as it looks like the teams will be mixed up. I do look forward to the weak getting weeded out too. So far it's been car crash TV.

I'm actually hoping that if they get any worse he'll take out an air rifle and shoot them!

I agree anomaly, Jenny was far worse and deserved to go.  Begging for tips?

The girls negotiation with guy who was having his washing done was hilarious, worth 60 quid, yeah will do it for it eight.

Oh, you want it ironed, well that’s gonna be two quid extra at least.  This guy has just won  the laundry lottery!!

It’s a good thing the best sales person in Europe was on hand or they might have lost out on the deal.  Good work. But hey, she did find over a £100 of new orders, so there’s a feather in the cap at least.

Enforced tipping! Nice.

Come to think of it, how many episodes are there this year? We had a double eviction last year (I think when one chap walked and Sugar fired the other) in addition to the two who go at the interview stage. Just wondered if we could expect something similar this year.

I was completely cringing all through the girls meeting with Sugar. I just wanted to curl up and die. When Jenny started blurting out that one of the girls was a liar, manipulative etc I just started shouting 'Nooooo' at the tv.

I'm not sympathising with Lucinda - I think she's awful down to that little red flower she wears to each board meet - but that Jenny was an absolute horror!

Just watching the 'highlights' on The Apprentice: your'e fired, and all the argueing just gets worse in retrospect.  I sat with jaw gaping open.  Ultimate cringe-crash.  Which is not always a good thing.  They have to split the teams, beacuse it can't carry on like this.

The after show on the other hand, might actually be a better programme.  It's great!

Yeah, watching it for the first time (forgot about it last week  ) and seeing some of that stuff over again is appalling.  I agree that Shazia (sp?) was the most organised once the laundry started coming in, labelling and noting down what belonged where.  No one else thought it it.   She should have made sure everything was in order but at the same time Jenny should have asked her if it was befire Shazia left.

Think the mixing of the teams is definitely needed.
