Oh no, not Duane!!! I think he deserved to stay because of his past effort. Though, to be honest, he was most at fault in this task.

Really annoyed that the team leader did not take a couple of the quiet ones back to the boardroom. It seems that those contestants that work hard and get noticed are sacked first. Whilst the lazy and quiet ones survive.

Having said that, I really enjoyed tonights episode. I thought that both the videos were hilarious.

Get Jenna out. Get Jenna out. Get Jenna out.

I can't help feeling that Katie was set-up in the last episode. Adam, the team leader, knew that taking her into the boardroom with him would greatly help his chances of staying as it would be the 3rd time she was there.

Adam was right. Sugar fired her because she had been in the final 3 too many times. Katie seemed to suggest that she knew this was the real reason she was selected.

The task was not lost because of Katie's suggested venue. It was lost because Adam made an awful choice, then proceeded to sell it at far too high a price. (In any case how do you eat meatballs with spaghetti whilst on the go?).

Adam should have gone or one of the ones flying below the radar, like Azhar.

Having said all that, I was really hoping that Jenna's team would lose. She is so annoying.

So near and yet so far Eddy sad.gif (with regard to losing Jenna). I nearly jumped out of my skin when she spoke suddenly ohmy.gif
I think Adam should have gone, as he refused to use the famous chef's name for the meatballs...

I'm at a loss. How was Azhar responsible for the failure of that task? Ok, he nagged a bit but that did not damage his team's effort in any way at all.

Also, given his excellent record he should have been given another chance.

The fact is that Jade was blooming useless. She really was. She got the products, the prices and the location all wrong. Yet Sugar allowed her to survive because of her 'enthusiasm'. In other words, her loud and abrasive character makes for better television.

Jade REALLY mesed up BIG TIME I thought. Maybe she really does have a good business plan, in which case I suppose she will probably win

Azhar was robbed

I think the business plans are playing a huge part in helping AS decide who stays and who goes.

The tasks matter far less than in the earlier series. That is why weaker contestants often survive against the odds.

For once I agree with AS' decision. Laura Hogg was the right one to go. She was useless at selling. In fact she didn't seem to be trying very hard at all.

The project leader, Tom, was very lucky. He certainly was a weak leader this time round and hugely let himself down with all that showing-off in front of the first artist. He was clearly gutted when this was mentioned in the board room.

However, realising that things were not looking good for him, he managed to turn things around. Very clever indeed. He quickly accepted that he had made some wrong decisions. And he showed some humility for the first time in this competition. He then let Laura's big mouth annjoy all of us.

There seem to be quite a few contestants this year who are chugging along nicely under the radar.

Mootle, I agree.

When the spotlight is put on these under the radar types they fail on a spectacular scale. It's then that I realise that far better contestants have been lost.

Good grief. That must have been so very difficult for her. I wonder if Alan Sugar knew.

Good episode. Jenna's gone.

biggrin.gif

Jenna really deserved to go. The advert was utter rubbish and it was all down to her. However, why didn't Steven tell Jenna that the ad was rubbish? He was there!

Steven's gone. Hooray.

biggrin.gif

For a moment I thought that Steven's big mouth would once again help him to avoid the chop chop.. He has repeatedly managed to blame others and get away with it. But not tonight. Hee hee.

But, as far as I am concerned, Gabriella should have stayed. She's done well over the weeks. It seems to me that all Sugar could find against her was that she was quiet. She deserved another chance. (I reckon Sugar just did not like her business plan.

So jealous f the winning team's prize. That tea looked gorgeous, though not worth that sort of money.

Gabrielle should deffo have gone I think. Fish pedicure is SO last year, and there are concerns re health hazards.

A bit of fun ... The 12 most idiotic candidates.

Paul Tulip is my number one Apprentice contestant idiot. Not sure why Ruth Badger is on that list.

Look here, Telegraph.

I don't know but last night's episode seemed all upside down to me. I just feel that the other team, with their miserable product and shop, should have lost. I guess Alan Sugar likes their business plans.

Given Alan Sugar's decision, Adam Corbally was the right one to go ... by the tiniest of margins.

I was sorry to see Adam go, but I quite agree that the wrong team won. It all seems to be such a fix sad.gif

Don't forget the final is on Sunday night.

Finally, we will find out which business plan is Alan Sugar's favourite.

True!
Do you know, Nick has flown so much under the radar that it was only last week that I learnt what his name was. I bet he wins!
