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.

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

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).

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.

Not sure what the Sarah Jane girl did to deserve a firing. She seemed semi-competent and it's not exactly her fault the tour itself was such shite.

If someone sold me a beer tasting in Bruges and it was just a lad talking poo poo about how drunk Belgian beer gets you I'd walk out and demand double my money back.

As the PM she certainly shares some element of the blame for the lovely tour. But I think she was fired for not really making an impression. In last week's episode her entire role was sitting opposite the others in the taxi. Not actually really contributing anything.

She was sat in a room with Charles and Andrew though who actually did poo poo to be fired over.

The growing sense that the teams have a very limited list of things they can do, and ways to do it, gets worse every year.
I'm pretty sure at this point the teams don't get to choose much of what they do in creative tasks and have a few themes to chose from. More tasks would have teams doing the same things otherwise, and Karen saying "they chose the Family theme" from last week was pretty jarring.

Also they were probably given like, three locations to choose from and one was listed as 'quaint, picturesque Norman village' and then they were forced to film there after picking it. Like, they could so easily have said 'lets just drive down the road to literally any town in the UK' but instead the 'chose to make the best of what they had'.

For the football box they were literally just there for a private room and alcohol so it was probably pretty difficult to wrangle a disaster out of it.

I know it can't happen but I'd really prefer a series where the candidates are just competent and genuinely seeing who can do their best in difficult tasks. Not picking up goose poo poo.
