God I despise their approach to blame and responsibility.


The burgers can't be called organic because the crumb isn't organic. You! The exact specific person who typed the word organic, that's your fault! Not the PM, who suggested organic burgers, and didn't check that they were organic.

We shouldn't have been at Brixton. You! The first guy to utter the words Brixton! That was your fault, not the huge team in Brixton that didn't decide to gently caress off elsewhere when they saw there wasn't people there.

We lost the task because we had no costings. You! The only guy who did costings! This is your fault!

Hang the lot of them.

I wish the teams weren't so obviously constrained by how they're allowed to approach these tasks. Why not just let them adopt whatever strategy they like to make money selling burgers? Maybe they just want to sell cooked ones or just want to sell to the trade or be one big team or three small teams or do a veggie burger but no it's got to be two teams with a loving 'sub team' leader with two types of meat sold in the same way. It's just too managed.

This is true but at the same time they also have to arrange to have a camera crew and other watchful people following them around and they have to schedule everything around what they do, so there's probably a hard limit on how flexible they can be. I'm guessing they were given a choice of 2-3 locations to sell in.

It also makes it easier to compare how the two teams are doing I guess? :shrug:

I don't know it's an awful show.

Minute to minute I mean. 'The blokes' subteam are still packing burgers and the women's subteam are already selling leftover stock' is an easy way to compare (even though it's almost never accurate).

There's a lot of flexibility in some, later, tasks, but I rather think this is intentional in the first week(s) to make an edit that makes sense.
It can cut between sub-teams and you know what's going on by location alone and can focus on the nonsense they're saying.

Later episodes have the narrator bookend scenes to explain what each team is trying to achieve and how.

In the little freedom they had we witnessed people running around bridges trying to sell uncooked 'beef' to complete randoms leaving work, so I don't know what kind of madness you'd see if there wasn't some structure.

The Apprentice doesn't have a narrator does it?

And I'm not sure if you have inside knowledge of this series but based on recent years there's very little flexibility all the way to the end.

I dislike how so many people use myself instead of me, to try to appear smart and all sort of official-like. You rarely hear a "me" on this show.

Chaos is good, but the task segment of the show is ~25mins and if half of that is explaining why some twit has sent 5 people out into london in a star formation we'd have less of the payoff.
They're given just enough rope to hang themselves with.
The tasks aren't perfect but they'd have to change things up a bit with the format at the same time to give a really open approach.

I was at Stone food fair today and saw this.


Alana was not present, but according to that 'Brand Ambassador' (sigh) she is very 'hands on' and they have spoke on the phone loads. I will let you know what the quality of the stuff I bought (2 for 5, fairly reasonable for the slabs we got) after we have eaten it.

I was entirely set to bail like I did last year from the very start, but that was actually quite fun so I'll stick with it for now. Elizabeth looks far too much like someone I know and it's weird, she's just the same faffy wide-eyed kind of woman too. Elliot is doomed, the lady who PMd this time might do quite well if she's lucky.

Nice to see ol' Apprentice Thread Hero :allears: Tom :allears: back for a minute. I still use his stupid loving wavy nail file!
