  • I think Megan going would have been fair, but I think Dani deserved to go actually. I reckon they only kept her because she has the potential to be TV gold during the interviews because she isn’t great at directly answering a question.

    Simba isn’t a series standout, which is probably why he went. What has he actually done in ten weeks?

    Right now I’d rank it as:

    Victoria - Winner
    Megan
    Rochelle
    Marnie
    Dani
    I have a bad feeling about this.

    • The fact this lot are the top 5 shows what a piss poor bunch of contestants they’ve been this year.

      • The BBC would never have an all male final 5! Not even a male final 2 these days.

        Glad Megan stayed - love her Yorkshire accent! She was hilarious in that episode and she even dropped an F bomb!

        Dani should have gone for sure but she’ll be entertaining next week, so I’m fine with it. But omg, I can barely understand a word she says.

        Really don’t like Victoria. Marnie is actually the strongest one left I think - she’s had some good ideas these past few weeks but sadly never gets voted to be PM.

        • Not sure where the love for Victoria is coming from on UKMix, I can't think of anything she's done, it's ok saying nobody listens to her great ideas, but she was project manager this week and still couldn't get her ideas through.

            I don’t think she did too badly this week. I think she’s the candidate left with the best track record - though they’re all fairly similar:

            Dani:
            Wins: 5 (PM - 2)
            Loses: 5 (Boardroom - 2)

            Marnie:
            Wins: 6 (PM - 1)
            Loses: 4 (Boardroom - 3)

            Megan:
            Wins: 5 (PM - 1)
            Loses: 5 (Boardroom - 1, inc once as PM)

            Rochelle:
            Wins: 4
            Loses: 6 (Boardroom - 2, inc once as PM)

            Victoria:
            Wins: 6 (PM - 2)
            Loses: 4 (Boardroom - 2, inc once as PM)

            The only time Marnie lost and didn’t end up in the boardroom was the Brighton task. They all complain about her pushing her own ideas, but ultimately she’s helped her team win six times, then thrown under the bus when she hasn’t
            I have a bad feeling about this.

              Right!

              Enjoyed this week's show though.

              • Rubbish interview episode. Linda is annoying as hell - she asks a question, gives them two seconds to talk, then tells them how rubbish they are.

                As soon as Marnie said she has 350k secured in grants and loans I knew she was going to get into the final. In a similar fashion, as soon as they said Victoria messed up her rent calculation it was game over.

                I think Marnie probably has the win.

                • Didn’t enjoy that episode. The Apprentice, especially the interviews, is very out of place in today’s ‘be kind’ culture. Maybe 10 years ago, that was what errbody considered entertaining, along with CBB and Jeremy Kyle. It just seems cruel now though.

                    It was game over when Victoria said she was selling boxes of pick n mix online, my Facebook is full of ads of people that started doing that in lockdown.

                    • I’m pretty fuming. My work colleague and I both wanted Victoria to win (they’re all crap but she was less crap). He said, I hope no one does a pick and mix business plan. Watching the interviews, I almost passed out when Vicky from Liverpool pulled the most basic plan out of her ass and still got it wrong basing it on a unique box. Wtf.

                      We all thought Avi was the ‘bring him along he’ll make good tv’ but it was actually Victoria and the Essex one.

                      Marnie will win this. I’ve enjoyed the show, the contestants, however were the worst there’s ever been.

                      • Oh god poor Victoria being told to go back to her day job… twice! To be fair, the pick and mix market IS hugely saturated. There are hundreds of people on TikTok Shop doing it alone.

                        Dani clearly didn’t have much of a clue bless her.

                        It seemed quite clear from the edit that Marnie would be a finalist, I don’t really know how Rochelle got there

                        • Lord Sugar telling Victoria to do her business as a weekend hobby whilst she was on the way out the door was hilarious though

                          Karren was a rubbish interviewer, but she seemed to really like Dani in the end - despite wanting to spend 210k on hair extension stock ‘just in case’

                          It occurred to me last night that this might be the first season I’ve watched where sales and being a strong salesperson mattered.

                          • Karren’s ‘it’s Baroness Brady to you’ was stupid because they refer to her as Karen all series. Obviously it was because she was ‘in role’ but it made her look pompous.

                            • Yeah, surprised that made it into the episode to be honest - total cringe for Karren, as if she goes around saying that to people.

                                Hated that. They were going for a camp viral moment, a la Sharon Watts, but it didn’t work. She just came across as a total bitch and even though it was acting, she’s still a real person unlike Sharon

                                • God that episode was hard to watch. Literally felt like bullying. Not cool. And Karen made two of them cry, again not cool.

                                  Marnie has this one in the bag I reckon.

                                    • I think they emphasised that two of them cried in front of Karren because it’s supposed to show us how much they respect her and want to impress her. She’s treated like a goddess on this show and it’s nauseating. Some of her input and one-liners are necessary but haven’t liked her for years.

                                      I heard that they may be lining her up to replace Sugar if he ever leaves.

                                        she used to be the likable, relatable one, now she's just a C O W

                                        the other interviewers weren't any better. claude is an awful person, linda doesn't even let then finish a sentence before she swings the guillotine and the scottish one might as well just slap them across the face as soon as they sit down
                                        what's going on?

                                        • This was quite possibly the worst final episode i have ever watched. It was so obvious who would win.

                                          I really think they need to revamp this show and modernise it for what businesspeople face today. The ridiculous and nonsensical tasks (E.g. not using google, not communicating with the other side of your team), the really bad business ideas, the quality of candidates, etc all need a real looking at.

                                          • Marnie was on This Morning and Scott Mills radio show yesterday boasting about her win but nobody had the balls to question her on the fact that the whole cast were beyond useless.

                                            • It was dull as dishwater and so obvious Marnie would win because it was clearly the best of a bad bunch.

                                              • Agreed with the consensus that Marnie was the best of a bad bunch.

                                                Unfortunately, I haven't enjoyed this season as much as previous seasons but there have been some highlights and memorable characters.
