I was slightly surprised to see Chris was a finalist, but then I've not been paying much attention.  Who's Stella?

I think he has chosen Stella. I could tell from the look on his face in the preview of him saying "You're hired". I was sure his audience was female.

I could, of course, be entirely wrong.

The final is always an anti-climax - the task is set up so it's subjective and there's no actual winner - and he unerringly picks the wrong 'un.
Never tell me the odds.

She's quite negative, quite defensive...

He got the right person  :thumbsup:

So much for everyone telling her she's "too corporate" (which I have a feeling was their shorthand for 'professional and competent compared to us').

Definitely the right choice from the two. But nothing in the final could top the come-uppance of Mr Baggs (didn't get invited back...can't imagine why!! :) ).

Haven't really followed all episodes, but I thought Chris presented very well tonight in the after show.  Lord Sugar offering him the chance to knock on his door I thought was also an interesting twist.  Unless he does that all the time?

He also suggested some other person who was fired earlier (forget her name) was a mistake and Chris should thus have not made the final.

Which speaks to what I said unthread: I didn't think Chris should have been in the final.

I think Chris has been excellent, bar direction commercials and that Liz was partly to blame for him not winning the final. (By disregarding the colour choice of the drink).

I couldn't have put a fag paper between them.  I thought Lordsugar would actually have gone for Chris because Stella is far too old to be an "apprentice", but then again she had the working-class background to appeal to him.
Never tell me the odds.

Was she?  I don't think he did give a clear direction about that.  There was some waffle about whether it should be a coloured drink - but no firm decision.

I don't think the final swung it either way. Both had good and bad points including Stella's final plea for support at the end of her presentation was unprofessional and would have caused me to think twice with so little between them.

+1

It made me cringe.  I also thought that Chris had a strategy of not attacking Stella, whilst she piled into him, and he looked the better for that in the final interview

But as others have said, she was a better personal fit for Lord S.

His selection ratio for blonde females has been quite high, hasn't it?

and what a success Michelle Dewberry turned out to be; she got up the stick from fellow contestant Syed and didn't complete the year.

Curiously, she's the only winner who still has some sort of public profile; she reviews the papers weekly on $ky News.
Never tell me the odds.

Chris has just admitted fraud, thus reinforcing everyone's stereotype of Scousers.
