You know it's nearly the end of the year when The Apprentice swings back around again to sort out your Wednesdays (not Thursdays this time) 'til Christmas.
Given I forgot the show started Wednesday, and it's also kinda poo poo, the OP is lazy. Sue me I guess.

The number of red ties here is an interesting statement

Firstly enjoy the wonder that is Apprentice Bingo. I'd suggest a card per episode this year, because OH BOY do these candidates look ready to stamp.

Also if you've been here since the start, the candidates are basically all younger than you now, so enjoy that headache.

Here's what we need to deal with:


Andrew Brady, 26

For:
Seems to realise he's a weirdo creep ?
Likely candidate for topless hair-styling if you have that bingo square

Against:
He's a weirdo creep
Red tie


Anisa Topan, 36

For:
Already has a business in fashion

Against:
Her self description sounds like every 16yo's first CV
I got bored of her video at the half way point


Bushra Shaikh, 34

For:
Business owner (in fashion again)
Good at selling (perhaps)

Against:
Generic GOOD AT SALES person


Charles Burns, 24

For:
Looks really punchable
Business experience

Against:
Looks really punchable
He sounds as irritating as his face is


Danny Grant, 32

For:
Business experience
Does not look boring

Against:
A lot of you will find him irritating. Fast.


Elizabeth McKenna, 39

For:
Business owner, as per usual, on this show about wanting to start a business . . .

Against:
Oh gee lady, you want to tone down that whole thing
Every cliche about SAY WHAT I THINK
Mid 90s curtains as attire


Elliot Van Emden, 31

For:
Seems accomplished

Against:
Tory boy


Harrison Jones, 27

For:
Looks normal in like, that one photo right there
otherwise ...

Against:

Red tie
Most likely to axe murder the other contestants
Actually that's maybe a for


Jade English, 25

For:
Seems quietly confident

Against:
Manages a reasonable facsimile of Karen Brady's dead eyes at all times


James White, 26

For:
Guaranteed to be the best salesman ever

Against:
Vapid idiot
Red tie


Jeff Wan, 28

For:
A more unique personality for sure
'Hip hop dancer' so expect some fun tasks pratting around

Against:
Accent changes 3 times in his 53 second video
Like wtf dude


Joanna Jarjue, 23

For:
Some actual personality (??)
The only nice person to look at this year

Against:
Thinks she can sing


Michaela Wain, 33

For:
Well, she won't bore you

Against:
Has the look of someone trying to dress poorly in a 'before' role and I think this is her best efforts
Seemingly wears those glasses to hide her nose
They don't hide her nose
They look bad themselves


Ross Fretten, 29

For:
Likely to make issues happen

Against:
Someone saying they're seen "as a bit of a creep" because they are "ruthless in pursuing what I want" does not parse well dude, holy poo poo


Sajan Shah, 24

For:
Another one with good alliteration this year
Owns a company
Watchable

Against:
Is a cliche factory, but who isn't


Sarah Jayne Clark, 25

For:
Seems pretty reasonable

Against:
Most likely to check "PM ignores subteam leader" box


Sarah Lynn, 35

Compares herself to Thatcher, so can't be arsed


Siobhan Smith, 34

For:
Super active, likely good tasker
Business owner

Against:
Needs to see someone about her eyebrows

Elizabeth or Elliot to leave week 1.
Oh, and there's You're Fired on BBC2 after the show, which was watched by 5 people last year.
Finale will be around Christmas.

It's easy to compare the two teams however they do it you just count the money.

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.

How can you say this like it's somehow a bad thing? Chaos is why we watch this drat 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.

What was the profit margin anyway? I really don't understand how they decided who won that task. It seemed like it was "Both rooms were poo poo, the women's team spent less making it look like poo poo so they win".

I think Sarah Jayne does a pretty good job of being quiet and in the background without it being noticable. She literally had no lines at all in episode one and it was even better to hear her say "I don't want to be in a team with all the difficult people".

Kinda a poor edit on the film on that one.
The boys only had a couple of things going for it more than the girls (luxury furniture) but even less cohesion and my goddddd those walls.
