Discussion in 'Reality Bites' started by Star, Apr 4, 2008.
I have decided that Shazia's firing is one of the worst in Apprentice history now, not up there with Miriam (S1) or Karen (S2) but pretty bad nonetheless.
I only got around to watching this last night and I was just about to come on here and say something similar (obviously not going as far as making a "top 50 worst apprentice firing's" chart like David...). But yes she shouldn't have gone. It blates should have been the celery lady.
I highlighted two really bad firings, it's HARDLY a chart.
I can hear the TOTP countdown music in this thread as we speak.
Piss off you RUBBISH GAI!
I can see you wanking furiously over Alex in his Superman PJs AS WE SPEAK!
I thought his pyjamas were AWFUL actually
But WELL DONE for being able to handle a joke
Oh I can, I've handled nearly 22,000 of your posts, and they're ALL jokes!
well that's ok then
Shazia's firing was UNBELIEVABLE. Like they said on 'You're Fired', it really was one of the biggest shock firings ever. The only mistake she made was to go home - and the team leader completely AGREED with that decision.
Lucinda couldn't be fucked after falling out with jenny.
And Jenny was just an utter CUNT. What a vile human being. That moment where she switched her attention from Lucinda to Shazia, completely out of the blue, when she realised the argument between her and Lucinda was only going to get her fired, was GENIUS though.
I think Sara looks promising. Nice that she stuck up for Lucinda in the car; after that Jenny really did look like she'd just been slapped and couldn't quite believe it. I was sure she would take Sara to the boardroom for 'lack of respect' or something.
And again Lindi made the episode for me. I LOVED that at 7 in the morning ALL of the girls looked rough as shit, except Lindi who appeared with perfect hair and glamorous suit. She's fabulous!
I really like Lucinda!
She just waltzes around everywhere doing her own thing with the same look on her face.
I hope her and that nutty Jenny woman continue to make great TV
'Do you UNDERSTAND?!'
Sara's my favourite lady at the moment, and Simon my favourite man, but I'm anxious to see both as PMs, Sara next week.
I quite like the BULLDOG
I like the way she gives knowing looks every time Sirjewalan says something/anything in the boardroom.
That 24 hot line thing also had me in stitched. Episode 2 was far better than the opener. Also got more ratings I see :smoke:
I didn't even know the series was starting till the thread was started on Moopy, and I normally keep abreast of these things.
A 24/7 hotline, seriously, what the fuck would you need that for?
I'd of took her up on the offer and spent the night breathing heavily down the phone.
I would have constantly shouted down the phone 'Where are meee Marks n Sparks panties baaaaaabe' in a very strong brummie accent
Well that HAD to be worth paying £4.99 for each washed napkin.
I did however applaud Raspberry Beret for not attending the meeting. I'd of gone down slap bang in the middle of the cunts team speach and boiled the kettle just to wind her up.
If that doughnut Lee McQueen gets anywhere near the final then this show seriously needs to be stopped.
He can however fuck me hard doggie style and then make me thank him for it
I miss the podcasts that they used to put up on iTunes, only cause you'd find out who had gone the day before the episode was aired.
I love Lindi, obviously. But I can't see her going very far. The 24 hour hotline was one of those ideas that sounds GREAT - let's have a 24 hour hotline for EVERYTHING. But in practice is just such an ODD idea.
Lucinda is completely bonkers.
Simon is the obvious winner at the moment, but that implies to me he won't win - the obvious winners never do.
Theres an interesting article in one of the papers today where Nick and margaret give their verdicts
THEIR VERDICT ON THIS YEAR'S CONTESTANTS
Nick: She came across as the most dreadful control freak.
Margaret: She behaved very badly but at least she spoke up for herself. Pricing laundry at £4.99 per item was crazy.
Nick:: Squeaky, always complaining. And an international car dealer.
That speaks volumes.
Margaret: She kept saying "Me and so-and-so" instead of "so-and-so and I". Horrid.
Nick: An intelligent version of Syed Ahmed - televisual magic. I thought his hair was a toupee but it's just a carefully contrived bouffant.
Margaret: His "I deal with prince and pauper" line was priceless. Alan's eyes almost popped out. But he does wear a very fetching Noel Coward-style dressinggown.
Nick: wants to be noticed, hence the purple beret. Is she from this planet?
Margaret: Brighter than would appear from the laundry task ...she's articulate.
Nick: A tough north Dubliner. That accent is one of the least at tractive in the world.
Margaret: The photographers said she was terribly photogenic.
I didn't think she was.
Nick: The women all seem to love him.
My own partner Catherine is terribly taken too. She thinks that he looks like a film star. But he is no fool.
Margaret: Well, I think he's got jolly messy hair. Keep an eye out for his overcoat in future episodes - he wears it in the most ludicrous fashion. He has Superman pyjamas, too. Inexcusable.
Nick:: I can't believe he's a bank manager.
His negotiation skills in the laundry task were woeful.
Margaret: He has terribly funny moments - watch him in next we ek's pub food task.
Nick: He looks like a crane driver. Otherwise unremarkable.
Margaret: The girls seem to fancy him. But he doesn't make me swoon - he's no Clark Gable.
Nick: She tried flashing her eyes and teeth at me. But she does have a bubbly personality. Would do well working with children.
Margaret: An idiot who looks like a beautician. Her bright laundry idea was a 24-hour hotline. As Alan said, who wants to call at 4am to ask how their pants are progressing?
Nick:: She's an international global pricing leader. But she doesn't stand up for herself much.
Margaret: I think she will get more able. I can't say much more.
Nick:: Gone. And she deserved to go.
Margaret: She should have stuck up for herself. She's was a moaner, not a grafter. And worse, a mosaic artist.
Nick:: He was very enterprising to fund his studies by working as a gigolo.
Keep an eye on him. He has some fine moments.
Margaret: He was absurdly pleased to sell so many lobsters when, at £5 a time, he was effectively giving them away. Wait until you hear him sing. Appalling.
Nick:: Tongue-tied in the boardroom, and an arrogant pup.
Margaret: The least eloquent candidate I've seen - ex traordinary for a barrister.
Nick:: Reports on his local football team for the BBC from time to time. Won't set the world alight.
Margaret: Was he really a love-rat? I can't remember much about him.
Nick:: Resolute and has a thick hide. She fibbed to me once - I had to give her what for.
Margaret: She's a motormouth. But she'll turn her hand to most things.
Nick:: Charming, but a puppy. People do fancy him for the long run, though.
Margaret: He's hard not to like - he grows on you.
THEIR VERDICT ON PAST CONTESTANTS
Nick: An odious bugger on his uppers. No redeeming feature at all. Sly and disreputable.
Margaret: Stupid. Surprising that Michelle had a fling with him. She must have seen something we didn't.
Nick:: She was great fun - the life and soul. But her talents lay perhaps too much in selling.
Margaret: You could have a laugh with Ruth. But Alan thought she wouldn't fit in. Ruth is in your face.
Nick:: An ice-cold fish. I preferred Ruth (Badger).
Margaret: She was a worthy winner. But I would have picked Ruth.
Nick: I admire her. She's bright, and a powerful writer.
Margaret: Saira's great - a dependable force of nature. I'm very fond of her.
Nick: Basically, he's just not house-trained.
Margaret: I agree but he has improved. A bit.
Nick: She's damaged goods, trying to carve out a niche for herself as Mrs Nasty, a female Simon Cowell.
Margaret: Pursuing married men and then bragging about it is just not nice.
Get Nick and Margaret HERE NOW!

I like Raef's eyebrows on that!
I LOVE Margaret I have to say. Almost as much as I loved Carolyn Kepcher from the US version.
Oh she's no Carolyn.
That said, both Margaret and Nick seem much more amusing from that interview than on the programme.
Their stance on certain contestants does kind of suggest they won't be lasting long though, which spoils things slightly. I couldn't stop myself from reading NATURALLY.
Margaret: An idiot who looks like a beautician.
Some of Nick's facial expressions during the show are PRICELESS. They speak 'wtf?!' louder than words ever could.
