    Is there a box on the application where they ask if people have any common sense and then they reject anyone who says yes?

    Taping it while I have a lovely soaky bath. So half a yes. Y and half an E.

    That Eureka's been leading you astray.

    Recording it! After 10+ years, I am wondering if it will be the usual gang of misfits (at least one Irish, of course) - OMG, Nick is gone! (sobs)....

    ps. Mr Sabrinakat is Irish, we moved over from Ireland last year (I studied here, so technically, I moved back)

    They don't seem the sharpest knives in the drawer.

    I have just started watching it. Interesting leadership styles! The lady from Billingsgate who is teaching them to prep their fish taught me when I did a fish course there.

    It appears to be the usual - lots of bull but a lack of common sense.

    I only watch it with the same spirit I watch the cr£tinous halfwits round here struggle with the terribly difficult two-bin system, or spend two days correcting the unspeakable SpaG of the overpaid "professionals"' reports. With incredulous contempt.

    It's a food task. You'll love it.

    Shockingly poor judgement from Dan!

    Loving Claud!

    If by loving it, you mean I'll feel justified in my contempt, then tbh I'd rather watch something where I feel ennobled or edified by the (tiny) effort. Not holding my breath, but i am in a spectacularly bad mood at the moment anyway.

    I definitely get that. Though \i did feel sorry for the Physics teacher who was given his marching orders today after less than half a term's chance.

    You do realise someone else started a thread on The Apprentice? Before you did.

    Used to watch but it's stupid now. Nick has gone which adds to the stupid.

    So you DON'T watch it anymore? Look forward to not hearing from you then. Byeeeee!

    i'd love to see what is said to them when they do the sound bites that are used as trailers. Do they really believe the bull***t they say?

    Never watched it. Alan Sugar hurts my eyes.

    Love it because they always seem so appallingly arrogant and yet usually quite daft. There are two who are local to me this time for added interest. I haven't yet recovered from the £9 salad!

    The new format they changed it to a few years back just makes it annoying viewing.

    "Bring us a business plan and I'll invest £250k into the best business" is the premise. The first guy got fired because he couldn't sell fish to strangers out the back of a van. How is that related to his business plan? I don't mind it being trash TV, but at least have it make sense.

    Of course not. It's all hammed up.
