    Thank you for giving me something to watch!!!

(which while I'm sure was a contributing factor for most of them, wasn't really the point!).
    I just feel like it was the wrong time for them to appear. Their mum was dying and they weren't fully 'in it'

    I agree. They didn't come across well at points. It also had a knock on effect with their music I feel. They never regained the fans they lost due to their behaviour.

    Yes I agree about Martha. I also agree that the task were a lot better than the UK version and it was also filmed during lock down wasn't it? So there really was no excuse for so many design tasks on the UK version.

    Yes she did! She was caught out though and penalised!

    I’m glad Harpreet won, she was the best candidate and shone in the final. Sure her business is not unique or anything but she’s running it successfully so seems like a good investment.

    But I agree the show is more for entertainment than a search for a good business partner/ investment. People seem to get fired for all the wrong reasons. Like when Aaron got fired for making bad baby food. Like how does that reflect on how successful someone will be as a business partner? For all we know someone could have had a great business plan and been fired in like week 4/5 or something for a small mistake.

    I agree I did not find Navid funny at all. It felt sooo forced like Laganja on drag race. The boy bye and Okurr where just uncomfortable.

    It was clear who was going to win from the beginning of the episode. She just has a better business. And Kathryn saying her pyjamas are affordable when to get the full set comes out close to 150 was a bit of a joke.

    Which is silly from a business point of view, as interest will never be higher than it is now and she has nothing prepared without the investment.

    I get it from a TV show perspective in terms of avoiding leaks but it just reinforces the idea that this is all done for TV and the business comes second.

    Good episode. Happy to see people succeed here.

    Both businesses were quite frankly, a bore. Nothing about either of them was unique and the ideas seemed quite amateur.

    This is my first time watching this show and it really needs to be reworked. The logical order of things is ridiculous. Why arent people given the opportunity to fix issues that are identified before final presentations and after communication from the other side of their team, for example?

    Hopefully next season seems more true to what you may think happens in real life.

    My favorite episode was the interviews.

    I found his antics to be out of place, out of touch and quite frankly inappropriate. The whole Cardi B sounds made my skin crawl coming from a non-Black person.

    I love seeing them succeed and do well in the tasks. Really makes me smile.

    I don’t understand why they think the audience prefers to see candidates fail rather than succeed. I’m not saying make it easy, but don’t set them up to fail.

    I enjoyed the show overall but I do think it’s lost any credibility due to the candidates, the fake handling of business plans (from day 1) and the fake drama Sugar creates.

    Id love it if at least some of the candidates had some skill.

    Harpreet’s business already has a huge turnover. Food will always sell, so opening a new branch elsewhere should, in theory, be profitable. Kathryn’s was too much of a gamble in the end - and I really don’t think she had a profitable business model at all.

    Both businesses weren’t great, but I feel like they can just give Harpreet the money and she can go away and get on with it. Where as Katherine had no clue. Why was she crying at that awful advert and jungle print designs are about as “on trend” as the word boujee.

    Also, why do they have to come up with names for their existing businesses …

    It just goes to show that most of his "concerns" are overblown and unsubstantial to create tension for the viewers.

    Harpreet was the only choice this episode. Like you said Hun, she got ripped apart last week and this week, crickets. In the end, she was a worthy winner.
