I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

He did get a little lucky but I think for people to gasp at 20% is pathetic since bloody Stuart went in there promising 25% which no one seemed to bring up in the board room. I thought the only flaw in Chris's deal was not promising a share of ticket profits but overall profit including tips but it paid off. He's come up with a lot of designs and ideas in previous weeks and I think he puts his hands up gracefully when he's made a mistake and learns. That's the quality of an excellent employee.

He's also a revered scholar of theology.

I watched some episodes just there, can't take this programme seriously anymore. A TV show to somehow inflate Alan Sugar's ego even more. All the candidates insist on calling him Lord Sugar now, jesus christ, pass me a bucket. If I want to see this amount of arse licking, I'll load up YouPorn.

It's reality TV gone nuts.  I can't look at that arse that thinks he's for real.

Who do you think will win Julia?

I've not watched the show since Liz was fired because my laptop is broken and I had exams but I will stick by Chris, all the way. That maybe completely deluded though since I lierally don't know what's been happening in the last few weeks or who's been fired.

I think Liz was the favourite all round ... think I'll go with you and stick with Chris.

p.s. how did your exams go?

Going to catch up with all the Apprentice shows and goss tonight now that I've hooked my laptop to another screen at home! yay

Exams were awful Daisy, it's impossible to revise everything taught on the course at this stage and I got a little wishful as to what would come up on the exam - nothing I revised in detail anyway. My maths exam is rescheduled to January so I might be able to save the Macroeconomics module. We shall see.

And Stella came out the winner - must say she looked all "glammed up".  Interestingly, Sugar offered (more or less) Chris a job also.  I thought they both did an outstanding job in their final task.  What I'd really like to know if what happens when an individual is Sugar's Apprentice ... what does that really mean?

They work in one of his companies for a year, then usually pursue a career in media/TV.

Well, ye-es ... but doing what in one of his companies.  Do they get a "real" job or what ...  If they are only going to be there for a year, then I don't really see what type of "real" job they could possibly fit into as it takes about 9 months to train someone etc etc ...

I see it'll be different next year. They'll compete for a £250k start-up investment in a new business that'll be 50% owned by Sugar. Should attract a different kind of candidate.

I like the sound of that ^ Nigel - and can definitely see it would attract a different kind of candidate ...

Well Done Stella!! I was so happy that she won, as she was my favourite, Gosh I sound like Brucie!  w00t I also wanted Kara to win in Strickly, so I had a pleasing weekend, except I did not win on the lottery, only £7 on the Euro Millions. :p

Anyone caught up with the newest series yet? Anybody else convinced Vincent is a shallow, useless poser?
