The Apprentice review: Nurun Ahmed fired! Sarah Dales acts up & Katie Bulmer-Cooke shines!

Lord Sugar Nick and Karren

Lord Sugar has always maintained that the motivation behind the tasks he sets on The Apprentice is to judge how his potential business partners will cope in a number of different situations. Whilst I understand the importance of seeing how well they can sell, buy and create products; I’m not sure how having them make candles really helps his Lordship in determining their suitability. I had this thought whilst watching Lindsay, Sanjay, Nurun and Solomon painstakingly creating their team’s candles and I wondered why Lord Sugar couldn’t lay on a number of experts to do the manual labour for them. It later appeared as if creating the candles was actually detrimental to the candidates’ survival in the competition as a few of them were accused of hiding out in the laboratory.

The Apprentice Episode 2 review: Scott McCulloch & Nurun Ahmed struggle to lead their teams (Spoilers)

Nick Karren Lord Sugar

What I like about The Apprentice is the way in which characters who were initially portrayed as the programme’s strongest fade into the background as the series progresses. The best example of this has to be Steven who was initially presented as a hot-headed irritant who was set to cause chaos for his teammates. But, to my surprise, Steven and former project manager Felipe hardly featured in an episode in which Team Summit struggled to find a leader.

Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson to be burned at the stake as part of hall of shame bonfire effigy!


Ah, it’s nice to see that whilst the BBC are happy to let Jeremy Clarkson repeatedly get away with murder, the public are not as frightened of the eggshells that surround him!

The Top Gear presenter has been making headlines for years with regards to his controversial and derogatory remarks, usually racist ones we hasten to add, with nothing but official warning after official warning coupled by a few half-hearted apologies to come from it all.

Apprentice 2014 Episode 1 Review: Chiles Cartwright’s t shirt drama as Steven & Sarah stand out!

Apprentice 2014 candidates

“I Walk the Walk, I talk the talk and I dance the dance.” “I’m not better at business because I’m good looking I’m better at business because I’m better at business.” “I’m going to come in and smash the competition before they even realise I’m there.” Hearing people in business suits uttering these outrageous claims must mean only one thing, The Apprentice is back for its tenth series. I for one am a big fan of the show and watching the candidates boast about their prowess got me excited for the new run. However, even I have to admit that the one big change to the format doesn’t quite work in the way the producers probably thought it would.

Last night Channel 4 braved a storm as it aired a controversial documentary about a vigilante in his quest to rid the internet of paedophiles.
