“I need guidance and a little bit of mentoring to help me make that first million.”

Gosh, that's remarkably... restrained and self-aware. Did she apply to the right show?
 
“Like the Tasmanian devil in the famous cartoon, I will torpedo my way through to the win.”
Doesn't know her tornadoes from her torpedoes. First to go.

Always worth a laugh to watch these so called experts in business fuck up the most mundane of tasks.

I lost it at "The Cunts" in the title picture lol.

She's certainly lacking in popular nineties cartoon knowledge. I bet she doesn't even know which one's Pinky & which one's Brain.

Damn, just realized that I won't be able to watch this live now I'm at uni. Shame, was one of the only BBC shows I actually watch.

Maturity, bitches.
Junior is boring. You're just watching kids acts like competent adults.

We want "competent" adults acting like kids.

I wonder if I will watch it this year as I started watching last year but stopped half way through the series, just wasn't the same without Nick.

Oh I like Rhod Gilbert, hopefully he's better than Jack and they resdesigned the studio so that the guest panel is on the side and not across the room as it got annoying when the camera kept cutting between them.

Yeah it was annoying watching little kids pretending to be adults.

Junior/Young Apprentice was axed after the 2012 series.

Not surprised, not many people watched it.

So excited for this! Glad they ditched Jack Dee as host of the after show, he was very poor, especially after Dara did such a good job before him. I like Rhod Gilbert too, he did a great job hosting Buzzcocks before it was axed so I'm sure he'll be decent here.

Man, I'm not sure this is how chameleons work.

I can't do cringe TV - couldn't watch The Office because of it. But The Apprentice is a weakness, a slow motion train wreck I can't look away from.

This might possibly belong next door, too:

From this interview:

"With a lot of the tasks some of the stuff we're going to be doing didn't exist 12 years ago. For example, there's a virtual reality episode in there."


And his thoughts on Trump from the same:

Asked for his thoughts on his former US counterpart, Lord Sugar said: "Well he's not as good as me, as far as The Apprentice is concerned. He's not in my class, quite frankly.

I feel like Jack Dee was just given Dara's lines for You're Fired, which explains why he felt out of place. Would have been interested in another go with him but Rhod Gilbert would definitely be a better fit.

I will give this a go, but it's been two fairly weak seasons in a row now, so if it doesn't hook me I'll probably drop it.
