Was I the only one that giggled like a schoolgirl at the "T.T. Liquor" name, when they announced at the end that this was where the winning team would be going? :lol:

Criminal that Amy didn't walk. I've not minded her in previous weeks, but she was mega-shit this week. The way she smiled at the camera and took the credit for the branding, which then got ripped to shreds, and then she just stayed fecking silent in the grilling later on. She was clearly the shittest one this week.

The vodify branding was the first slightly competent thing this series. Even if it did taste like semen.

Can't believe Sophie who has a pub or a bar did not get fired for fecking up the product.

I think he's fired the wrong person each week.

I thought Sophie should have gone along with Navid. No idea why Akshay was brought back when he got them the most orders.

I do think Navid was a bit weak for the process. Sophie should've gone as well. Most baffling thing was that Sophie didn't bring back Amy after the state of that branding and the fact she didn't make a sale, baffling decision :lol: I think there were some gender politics going on in this episode.

Definitely right on the last point. She chose the two boys for that reason only IMO. She should have been sacked for that decision alone, never mind her shite performance in the task.

As a graphic designer, I cringe almost for the whole hour every week. Can’t imagine having to deal with these idiots as clients.

It's all about each candidates business idea these days. The winner gets £250,000 investment and 50/50 partnership with Sugar.
Its essentially moot how some of these do in tasks, they'll not get fired as he'll want to work with those who have the best idea.

Its near enough a 10 week version of Dragons Den but making them jump through hoops before the final.

He's still not fired any of the girls, some of whom I'm starting to find over smug.

None of them are standing out, there's one girl who seems quite good, she's blonde, I still can't remember half their names

Next week sounds promising "the worst failure I've ever seen in this boardroom" sounds interesting

Wish he'd do a shock at least double firing early on.

I'd much prefer it to return to him hiring one of them, he might be less keen to keep them around if they were going to muck up some of his work like they muck up some of the tasks. Now it's just based on who's business plan will make him most money, provided they're showing basic competencies.

I quite liked the Vodify name and branding, the first vaguely competent thing, however I thought the pm was in the drinks industry so surely he'd know you couldn't make fake vodka. Even I said how can you make fake vodka.

None of them are even standing out, usually there's at least one character, e.g. Ryan-Mark, Tre etc. These are just dull.

I think he would have this week if Shama didn't withdraw.

Amy should have been in the final three but Sophie was all about favouritism and probably would have increased the chance of Sophie going as Amy wouldn't have backed down.

Sophie owns a bar, made a terrible drink and the pitch was awful which resulted in hardly any sales. She got off easy.

That's all I heard and I burst out laughing like a maniac as soon as I heard it. I know nothing about the brand or if it's intentional or not (and I don't even care), but it got me good.

Agree. Both Amy and Sophie should have gone.

Those poor crabs the women were just throwing them in roughly

One of them didn't ask the chef how he wanted the fish prepared. Could be interesting

Wasn't aware arancini was a street food... the burger sounded good

Akshay, Alex and Amy should all be in the bottom 3. Not sure why Catherine is there.

Akshay should go though, he’s been useless since day 1.

Why on earth did he bottle out of taking Amy in? I think she'd be gone if he had as Sir Alan was annoyed at her throwing Alex under the bus and I think he's sacked people before for that.

Hoping for a triple firing

What happened to Catherine disappearing due to illness for half the task? Never got mentioned in the board room but she did literally feck all due to it. Possibly covid?

I think Akshay should have gone as well but the PM Alex was by far the weakest PM the show has ever had imo and the right person to be fired.

Bottled it big time by not bringing back Amy and didn’t mention the crab to the corporate client nor ask for a time when he wanted the fish to be delivered. Criminal stuff.

The sacking last night was the biggest non call I think I've ever seen in years of this series.

Project manager, forgot to offer something for sale, job done. Over.

Some of the girls do seem to be getting a little smug, saying it'll be all girls in the final. It's taken as playful banter that way round, but you do wonder a little about the other way round.

I have Akeem in the office sweepstake. Money goes on 1st out, 7th out, most board room appearances and obviously the winner!

Akshay has almost wrapped up most board room appearances, 4 already, so 7th out looks my best bet!!

Couldn’t be fecked cutting up fish is my guess.
On another note I really don’t understand the hate for Amy.

This show is getting weirder each year. I appreciate it was filmed during a pandemic with restrictions and they cant do normal tasks running in and out of shops trying to buy weird stuff.
But they had them out on a boat in the sea fishing. Fishing.

Anyway, task was lost at the start when he forgot to sell them the crab.
The girl who spent £95 (was it) on granish for the dishes will be for the chopping block soon.

I really like the show, was thinking about this earlier and laughing. (Christ 8 years ago)

The show's candidates have gotten worse every year. However this year I don't think a single one seems competent. That's a new low. Akshay should be off'd.

And none of her fellow numpties corrected her :rolleyes: :lol:

That Time one, bar the logo, is actually decent

The "Artic" one is tragic. Its like something you'd play on MiniClip in IT lessons at school.

The prison game might have been alright as something to jump on the survival/battle royale bandwagon with but to base it around one character? That’s a bit rubbish.

I’m Team Artic Saviour. Minus the typos and penguins.
