Black armbands at the ready, guys. One of the most beautiful soldiers in The Apprentice war has fallen. In case you haven’t watched the episode, I won’t spoil it, but I will say that the man who has brought so many hits to our website by pervy ladies searching for pictures of his delightful abs, will no longer be gracing our screens with his fine 40-year old ass.
It was a classic Apprentice task this week – source items, sell them, the team left with the most money at the end (with deductions for left over stock) wins. The teams were taken to Spitalfields Market as well as given a shop in Shoreditch for the second day of the task. From the word go, it was clear which team was going to win – while the girls were out choosing items for their stall, the lads were still trying to decide on what type of product they were going to go for, settling on homeware items like candles and ceramics. Oy vey…. This back-to-basics task was a great idea for this week, because we’re heading into the final stretch here and next week’s episode is the one where everyone has to have an interview with Alan Sugar’s rottweiler pals. I can’t tell you how excited I am to see Jordan squirm and whinge like the petulant child he is when he’s called out on his bullshit.
Look, more of that later – here’s the roundup:
Everyone getting in a tizzy about the sitting room:
The difference between the boys and girls while they’re getting ready for the day – Luisa spends her time slagging off the boys team, the boys wonder whether they should wear suits or jeans…
I felt that Jordan, as early as the project manager selection process, kept shooting the task down and seemed like a childish little brat, determined to put a spanner in the works and then bitch about the machine shutting dow. Can’t stand him.
Whereas the girls seemed to gel from the start, and made a real effort to pull together and get on track as soon as possible.
It’s like Nick said…
Francesca talking about the choices as “we” even though she wasn’t really involved in any decisions
It was nice to get see the different small-business and market-stall owners, who make their living this way every day.
No wonder Myles’s team was so drawn to the ceramics, cos they’re a bunch of mugs themselves.
The boys’ team calling their shop ‘Casa Unique’ and the girls calling their’s ‘East Side Fashion’… give me strength
The shambles of Myles and Neil trying to set up their displays at the front of the shop was brilliant, blocking off the access and messing about with shelves, pure slapstick
The problem I had with the dresses that Luisa’s team is that those dresses cost about £8 on a market stall.
Everyone tries to sell ‘vintage’ or ‘vintage-style’ in East London, so while the girls were on the right track, they were fighting against established shops.
And it’s all well and good that Luisa could lead the team well on this task, but it’s essentially just running a shop – is that all Lord Sugar wants from his business partner?
I’m glad that they made Jordan go out and try to sell that vase, little shit
Casa Unique looked fuller at the end of the day than at the start – that’s not a good sign, is it lads?
Karren shooting down Nick’s compliment to Luisa with this:
One thing that came across from Myles was that he was very open about the mistakes he made, both in the boardroom and on You’re Fired – perhaps it’s due to his age; at 39 he’s not old at all, but he’s clearly got more humility than the younger and more aggressive team members, like Jordan god I fucking HATE HIM
Just look at this dickhead, honestly
I want to punch Jordan
I know this is rapidly descending into a stream of consciousness rant of a mad woman, but I cannot stand that short little shit
Ahem. Back to business.
If there’s one thing that this episode will be remembered for, it’s Jordan almost vomiting when he thought he was going to be fired. In order to explain how brilliant this moment was, I can only say that it was as amazing as when Adele got cut off at The BRIT awards. Pure brilliance.
Urgh, his stupid face, bet he wishes he had a sippy cup, too. I want him to puke. I want him to PUKE IN FRONT OF THE INTERVIEWERS NEXT WEEK AND THEN JUST GO AWAY FOREVER.
God, can you imagine how irritating his and Luisa’s children would be? Yikes.
Yes, next week is the interview round, always a stand-out episode in every series of The Apprentice. I’m looking forward to Margaret and Nick being reunited in the boardroom, and watching the candidates sweat as their CVs are picked apart. Cannot wait! Let us know what you think of the remaining 5 candidates, and who you reckon could be victorious….
