£4990 for a laundry wash - The Apprentice

C'mon, that' was naive, quoting an hotel £5K for a wash.
Ranks alongside selling lobster for £4.95 each!

What is the worst you have seen from supposedly the "best business brains" in Britain?

haha the bit with the lobsters last week was hilarious 'would you like another half price' couldnt believe it!

I'll buy that for a dollar...

that was crazzy. With sheets, pillow cases etc your looking at £25ish a room!

Original Poster

Yep, 4 items a room, 1000 items so 250 rooms.
£20 a room laundry? Good job it's not Holiday Inn
The boys got it for £1 a room.

Lol how stupid were the girls, who would spend £5k a day getting laundry done? I feel the project manager should have been fired instead.

Original Poster

Yep, bad management.
You don't call your staff liars because you'd be up for complaints!

Jenny shud have gone. Shazia was made a scapegoat. And I thought the asking for tips was a joke! I hope that guy took his 'tip' back after they lost his shirts!

Anyone else think Raef looks like Federer?

But it's television, it's not real life. The Apprentice is about as real as Soap Operas.

I've never seen Pauline Fowler or Dot Cotton charge £4.99 an item :thinking:

Jennys only stayed for a bit of friction I would say. Bloody useless she was. Now can y'all be quiet please I am talking. Uh, i said, I am talking. I said be quiet!!! Idiot!

Jenny was pathetic, should have gone. She is no Katie though, thought that was a bit stupid on the BBC2 Extra Program comparing her to Katie.

She wants to be katie.. the very sloooow talking down to people, making them sound like kids. Katie had some weird sex appeal that she used to her advantage... jenny does not have this

the best was saying she had to breastfeed them :w00t:

Considering the tasks that have been set and how clueless they all look, is it really that hard to be an Exec?

Did the guy that ran Nothern Rock win this competition? Mind you, I wouldn't mind his payoff for losing billions of pounds!

Not if they cannot take at least £900 for £600 worth of fish

i LOLED when I heard £4990. Anyone who is human can see that this is a joke.

And these girls claimed all to be top sellers like Global Pricing Leader and Best Saleswoman in Europe.
The boys had it spot on and grafted for it.

Oh my, it only gets better!
Can't wait until next week.
My money is on the soldier bloke (can't remember his name). Seems a very down to earth, grafter sort.

Original Poster

I can't see soldier boy winning.
Good on this task but he has yet to excel.
Raef has and I think Claire Young, Helene Speight and Ian Stringer all being in the final 4

Original Poster

Sara Dhada to go next.
She sounds funny with that squeaky voice and she's performed badly twice

come on, its only the 2nd episode - and he's got my attention!:whistling:

Original Poster

he mucked in and was the best performer along with Raef for getting the lads up for it

There's something about that Raef I don't like. Can't quite put my finger on it though.

I think it's his look of arrogance or superiority.....that most people are beneath him
prince and the pauper comment

I think it was because of the way he didn't have the guts to be project manager on the first task, but yes, the prince and pauper comment did't go down too well either.

Original Poster

but Raef did take on this task and I think this was harder.

To be fair, he managed the task well. Everyone had a job and everyone knew what they were doing. They were very organised and deserved their victory.

Yh i agree, he did manage it very well considering how badly it could have went yet there was not 1 major problem.

Still dont like him though and I think they would have won no matter who was leader what with all the bickering on the girls team!

Original Poster

they bickered last week....so it might be the leader...

Original Poster

there is no way the girls are who they say they are.
They've glamourised their job titles. Global price leader might just mean she prices abroad.
If she was global Price Leader for Tesco, then she might be a somebody.
Then there's Sara who worked for her dad's car lot....and thinks she's an international dealer.
All good sales so they say and then price laundry at £4.99 a piece?

I reckon most of them arn't in it for the job with the big Sugar cube. It's a fame thing. Lets face it, they'll probably earn more money from being famous in the long run if they play the game right, than working for him

Original Poster

Only Katie has made money from the fame thing and it is shortlived as opposed to £100K+ a year.

Oh and by the way - i'm an international business tycoon (i've sold on Ebay);-)

What about the Badger?

Original Poster

she is making the money on the back of the series but not fame.
I don't think she that was that good, cocksure but not good

screw this, I'm addicted to "The Big Give"...much more fun lol
