Stop making Harpreet reinvent and relaunch her fully established business. What's the point.
It looked like they edited pretty closely around Katherine saying she didn't care about the branding as it was a pointless exercise. And she called constant attention to the artificiality of doing it in two days.

Format is dead.

loool superb i look forward to seeing the headline about her shafting her sister out of her place in what was a fairly successful small business only to go on to sink it

(on the front of TV Quick, possibly)

(if it's a slow week in the soaps)

Dessert shops make up like 25% of all British high streets, they are beyond saturated.

I honestly thought they were all money laundering operations like this import sweet shops that never have anyone in them but somehow afford to pay central london rent

I doubt he'll ever interact with her again other than obligatory joint interviews etc. The man gives zero shits about any of these businesses anymore. His investment is next to nothing.

I was surprised Harps won only because doesn't Sugar have a dessert apprentice already? I think it was a series I skipped. He invested in a sweets business too that time both finalists won. Maybe just going all in on the Sugar.


e: yes, Alana in 2016 had a cakes and chocolate business, also Carina in '19 had a bakery. Sarah in '17 had the sweets by post thing.

I worked it out that Sugar's £250k investment is 1/4800th of his wealth... equivalent to about £40 for someone with £200k in savings (apparently average for a 50 year old).

Even if they earn him an extra million in the first year that's the equivalent of £160 - hardly with getting out of bed for.

she also looked the part of the kind of friendly character who'd turn up on Knightmare to give a clue, there

full of energy and really eager for an acting gig

She'd probably be a decent CBBC presenter actually.

Or to put it in context for non UK folk, LORD ALAN SUGAR'S BIG BUCKS INVESTMENT of £250k would not buy you a one bedroom apartment within a 45 minute radius of central London

Anyone watch the Food Apprentice, Gordon Ramsay's Future Food Stars? And is there interest for a thread if so? I hate him so much and I already hate this show but in a nicer way than I hate Lord Sugar and the Apprentice. At least this one shows me my favourite thing: food. Expensive mushrooms, massive team tantrums and cliffjumping - Sugar's going to throw a fit about it on Twitter soon I'm sure.

Not heard of it or seen it, but is this literally just a renamed Hell's Kitchen? I could easily imagine them sticking a new branding on it once the old one wore off.

Nah it seems to be more like the Apprentice than a straight up cooking show. From the ads it seems the prize is a tiny investment into a restaurant and it's determined through mostly irrelevant nonsensical challenges.

Apparently it was bad and no one watched it.

It's had one episode and I watched it!! It's entirely up this thread's street, garbage people competing for a garbage prize from a garbage rich man!

e: actually the people seem quite nice and have genuinely nice food businesses, which is where it diverges from the Apprentice
