    I'm not quite sure what it's motivating me to do.

    What a DULL boardroom

    Well I did not see that one coming. What a shame, does it really boil down to showing "fire in your belly" in the boardroom?

    I absolutely loved the two VERY DIFFERENT hugs - you could really tell which of the two she actually liked :D

    True, I think the "Grace Dent with a wasting disease" look has carried her as far as it could :(

    Colleagues who come together on the one goal get results, or something of that nature.

    I still hate this whole unknown to the audience (although I think a couple of people have mentioned them) business plan thing. It just creates an imbalance in the boardroom that doesn't translate to good (or fair) TV.

    She looks like a cross between the woman from Embarrassing Bodies and Carol Vorderman back from an isme shoot(ing).

    Oh bless her. Does Rebecca really think she is a 'big character'? :shy:

    I thought Rebecca was a real stand-out character in the first 2 or 3 episodes - the girls battled her down to nothing by Week 6... she asked to be project manager about 4 times and never got the chance to be because they never voted for her. Absolutely shocked he got rid of her, not least because the failure of the task DID NOT come because of money spent as everyone kept saying - it came because they had a 50% refund, which was entirely due to the fact that the team had no focus on the business acumen of the tasks that the clients were doing all day. And that was sadly due to Francesca not having a plan AT ALL for the day. How Rebecca is gone and that ridiculous Jason character is still there is completely beyond me.

    It was utterly ridiculous to me that Neil's team (NOT Leah's team) only won by £500 - they deserved to absolutely slaughter the other team. Neil came across as absolutely outstanding in this episode from beginning to end. Yes he can be a cunt - but he really understands good business and is also very charismatic when he has a client in front of him.

    Oh what a really awful episode. The first 5 weeks were brilliant, I've totally loved them. Tonight's fell totally flat. Crap task, boring board rooms and I can feel interest ebbing.

    I can't take much more of the utter, utter tool that is Neil Clough, "saving the day again" :manson: or otherwise. Total prick. Him and Alex really need to be removed from this for me to be able to keep watching.

    SADFACE :( :( :( :( :(

    I don't much like any of the rest of them. I am now going to cheer on Jason because he pisses them all off by being so useless.

    HATE LUISA.

    I can definitely deal with Neil a lot more than Alex, because at least Neil appears to have done some useful things. Alex has done NOTHING but always calls everyone else idiots.

    Not my favorite episode, I cringed so hard throughout the whole thing. Alex has a terrible temper, it's a bit unsettling. We're Natalie and Kurt in this episode? Kurt was even all covered up in the spa.

    I'm over Leah and for the first time I think I'm rooting more for the boys.

    Had Francesca been any good, she was poised to be my favourite. And I could forgive Leah being a cunt if she was decent, but she was equally as useless, just in a a less insipid way. Luisa is quite clearly repellent, and the other woman barely registers other than her takedown of Zee.

    I guess Leah and Louisa may survive the longest just because the other two are ultimately shit' unless Francesca pulls something out of the bag next week. I console myself with the fact that the guys are at least good looking and are giving us lots of underwear shot.

    Although what they come up with was obviously dreadful, it was at least good to have a slightly different task for one week. I thought the ideas were very tame though - maybe if Jason had been PM, one of the themes would have been Pirates versus Ninjas or something.

    I expect another female sacking in the next episode. If Neil and Miles are on the same team, they should win easily as this task will suit them. I've done exhibition sales before, I really can't see any of the girls being very good. I wish Usma was still on the show, then I would still be holding out for a punch up. This could have been the week.

    What bothers me is that they get criticised for doing stuff but that's how the episode is setup by the producers making them choose a theme and games and then going to see the customer to ask them what they'd want? Who'd actually do that?

    I know it's a TV show and all that but every series it just gets more and more transparent and the editing gets even shitter too with a sentence stringed out from about 5 different camera angles and 3 different locations.

    "Neil. Just. Shut. Up and stop. Being. So. Controversial"
