I did wonder why they invited a load of health food experts to a pitch for liquid fat.

Unquestionably, yeah.
Not a single valid business plan on display and at no point did any of the tasks seem genuine to how they're portrayed.

I mean FFS we know both finalists already have an existing business, so what's the point of forcing the "final" into being "launching" their business? Including picking past contestants to go do the branding on said businesses?
It's a hilariously meaningless format this season.

I suppose you could make the tenous argument that it shows how they cope under pressure and what they do when something they're invested in goes wrong. Can't revert to the Sabrina tactic of sitting on the fence of any key decisions in the final.

It felt like Camilla had no idea how nut milk worked though.
I get that she's rich and you can basically do whatever the gently caress you want when you are but to say she runs a business when she had no idea seems a bit far fetched.

It's good to watch if you want to know why lurdsugarr posted a loss this year.
It is however, not entertaining at all, and the concept of the show is completely lost by now.

Premise: Lord Sugar is searching for a serious candidate to invest £250,000 in their business plan.There will be a weekly competition in order to weed out those lacking the necessary business instincts to become that partner.

....surely you mean the producer's orders?

I feel like they wheel him in after he listens distractedly to Karen and Claude's run down and fires whoever based on that. I don't feel like he gives a poo poo anymore.
Do you remember the season from years ago when you saw him watching them on the home shopping channel, he was sitting at home with his dog in his casual gear on his sofa, tutting away. Now he will literally phone in his 'request'. I reckon he is getting doddery now and this show is low on his list of Fucks to give.
They'd be better off getting a new person in his place, and revamping the format.

I'd really like it if they brought in someone who actually understood that online stuff is the future and standing at a market stall being a SELF MAHD MAHN is bollocks.

She is best friends with the family that runs Booths which is a super posh supermarket here in the Manchester area.
She has lots of money and is therefore a poo poo.

It's still as shite as ever but I guess it's a bit less stale after a few years off.

It was really annoying that everyone was going on about the girl's name being too obscure when the actual problem is that it has extremely negative connotations.

I was actually thinking of doing a thread that would have a sort of comically low-effort summary of each episode and also a summary of how we got to this point in the show's run since 2004. Would anyone be interested in that? I'm unlikely to be motivated to watch the show if not tbh

She doesn't seem to know what show she's on and the others are going to single her out relentlessly until she gets fired or quits.

You’re never going to have a good idea on there because you wouldn’t give up 50% to a twat like Alan.
All you’re ever going to have is horrid narcissistic tossers who want to be famous for a week and have an idea like “dating app but for some reason there’s flash games on it too.”
But it does make it very very funny at least. I can’t tell who’s going to be the absolute nutter this year they all seem quite aggro already.
