Ricky Martin (ha!) is the new Baggs The Brand, I think.

There seems to be a higher percentage of no-hopers this year.
Never tell me the odds.

Mebbe but also fewer out and out  knobs. A bit toned down, 'apprentice lite' perhaps.

The market stall guy is like a fish out of water, as is the Scouse girl.  Duane, despite his silly name, seems quite good so far.

Ricky and the blond extremely patronizing guy...hate'm both. It's interesting to see that the cliques are mainly formed in the boys this time around, although I guess that comes from winning. Azir clearly hates half of them after being backstabbed in the last task.

I do think the series is starting to wear out.

My, it's hard to see which of this bunch of losers is going tonight.  One of the girls, I think.

Great line, wasn't it? I thought Tom did a decent job as PM. The blond haired chap on his team will be not long in this process.

Was it just me or did any one else, in watching last night's episode (selling pre-owned items in Brick Lane) constantly get reminded of the Harry Enfield sketch "I saw you coming"?  For once the contestants weren't the biggest load of mugs and idiots on the show.

Yes, that did spring to mind....though that guy with the second-hand shop who sold one team or other some of their stock certainly saw them coming!!

That was brilliant. It even trumped classic dad-at-the-disco Steve and his line about finding "the best stuff" in the room at the back of that shop.

Damn!  My money's on Nicholas-with-the-silly-hair, then.  He looks about 14 but he usually talks sense, and Sugar likes 'em young.

Lordsugar likes the barrow boys.  Adam is well out of his depth, though.  The uptight bloke with the tiny mouth needs to go soon - he's too excitable, and not in a good way.

agreed - is he a 'recruitment consultant'?  He looks and sounds just like one. Tosspot.

Presume you mean Steve. Utter bell-end. The way he blamed everyone but himself when they got in the boardroom suggests a total lack of self-awareness -(it could be a smart dissembling game he's playing but I really don't think he's clever enough for that, so I'm sticking with lack of self-awareness). He's had several opportunities to get himself fired already. God knows how he's still there - his one and only skill seems to be the ability to pull the wool over his team leader's eyes.

Tom is going to win. He's this year's Stella - a calm voice of reason in the sea of madness.

I would not hire anyone who uses 'myself' instead of 'me' (I hate yuppie speak with a passion). Or who, when on the spot, chooses blame instead of responsibility.  And on that basis, they're all fired.

I didn't watch it last night, because I chose to watch the footie. So don't tell me who got fired as I'll watch it tonight on catchup.

When it comes down to it, who would want to work for old Sid James lookalike anyway.

We need Margaret back with some of her incisive caustic comments on the candidates. (alliteration unintentional)

I agree about Margaret - Nick doesn't seem to get on with Karen and the old interaction has gone.

............... suggests a total lack of self-awareness

What?, in an Apprentice candidate?  Surely not.

Watched it on catchup, and have to agree with several others that Adam is swimming out of his depth.

Tom's my man.
