    Unnecessarily rude to Courtney there. An espresso might have cheered her up.

    Sophie Ann's waistline is really not flattered by that green thing.

    I am SCREAMING that they had mere hours to create a game which would usually take about FOUR YEARS! Ridic!

    That was a good one tonight. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
    Like monsta said, I don't know what they expected them to come up with in a day, but missing their target market by creating something more niche was probably what made them lose.
    Finally Sofiane is out. I couldn't stand his face and bullshit anymore.

    I did enjoy how 'mincing into the big city' got trumped by 'coming over here as a kid not speaking English' :D

    It's perfectly reasonable to create a demo (which is what essentially both games were) overnight, gaming jams churn out much more solid ideas in less than 24 hours. But you ain't going to impress the Comic Con crowd with THAT!

    My favourites now are Alana, who I doubt will win but comes across as a nice, semi-competent person who everyone tramples over, and Jessica, who is batshit crazy (I think probably medically certified) but has a great attitude.

    :D She's absolutely bonkers. I find she must be a nightmare to work with.

    I seem to recall everyone writing all the women off in week 1 me included... :D Then again, they've all been shit all bloody series!

    Grainne purring 'Last man standing' at poor little Courtney was highlight of the episode for me.

    Dylan trying to play the gay card when he works in creative industries was the absolute lowlight.

    Alana is my favourite now. She had a shaky start but she is pretty competent now. Interestingly, Sir Alan follows her on Twitter but no other contestant from this year.

    Trishna is pretty good too but she's had very low key edit.

    I think Courtney is definitely in the final and the other one could be anyone really.

    I don't think Courtney is that good
    He can't present to save his life and that's a big part of the final, so can't see how he'd do that.

    I don't think Courtney is particularly bad, but his deflecting of the pitch yesterday wasn't good, and I'm surprised more wasn't made of it. But then he has shown himself to be a bit of a charisma free zone, and that's something Jessica has in abundance, so perhaps it was a shrewd decision to recognise she was more likely to deliver a win.

    I think at this stage, the business plan looms so large that it's almost pointless trying to guess who is going to win based on task performance. Vana's dating app was so shit last year, she never really stood a chance, but we didn't really know that until the final, did we?

    She was crowdfunding for her shitty app, the last I read a while back.

    I'd forgotten all about the final two from last year. Who beat Vana?

    I don't think Courtney will be final 2.

    I'd say likelihood stands in this order:

    Grainne
    Frances
    Trishna
    Alanna
    Courtney
    Jessica

    But fuck me that is a terrible list. I think only Grainne would have stood a chance against any previous finalists.

    Still lolling at Karen snapping at Courtney for offering a cup of tea... she is such a bitch.
