I did. Enjoyed seeing them trying to sell in Canary Wharf as it’s where I live. However, they all give me some serious rage... I hate unorganised people and when they cock up the most basic of tasks: but low, sell high and in quantity - easy! :lol:

He is annoying but it seems to come from a good place. The fact is he knew costings hadn’t been sorted, and as his sub team was supposed to go sell in bulk originally (like the girls’’ sub team) he wanted to work out his base costings to maximise the profit.

The fact he was blamed for the entire task failure because he didn’t jump straight into a car when told to is pretty piss poor imo, especially as they missed the lunch rush and didn’t sell enough product.

Otherwise he’s an annoying twat :lol:

I get so much rage from this show it’s unreal. Everything could have been sorted and planned in an hours chat the night before. They all live together - don’t the discuss a plan of action constantly when on task?

I do love the earlier episodes when everyone’s egos get in the way. But my heart rate monitor suggests I get too involved :lol:

The tasks are a bit daft in the way that they don't relate to anybody's business plans and they've got a pretty short time to carry everything out. More than ever over the last few years, the show has become more about the fails and less about the successes - last year it was hard to see who actually had business sense until the last few!

I loved the woman from Bolton with red hair in those awful NHS glasses, so common. Also, Scary Liz :lol:

Only 1 episode in and already one team was totally useless :lol: :lol:

Danny was a terrible team leader, one of them did tell him they need to get out there and sell and he just told them to keep making the burgers :roll: blaming Charles was all he could do to save himself, did think he might have fired 2 for a moment

Alana and Jessica were my favourites last series, I know it's only 1 episode but Liz is a legend in the making, she is scary (in a good way), agreed the woman from Bolton (Michaela) was great, can see her staying a long time in the process

The guy who left was hot. Wanted plenty of morning shots of him. But also really volatile.

I like that florist lady.

I got really quite mad at various points last night - the boys made it look so easy.

I love this series. I did not think the boys would win. I thought they wild be tore apart for the 7 canapés. Next week is my fav task.

Couldn’t believe the boys won - but the right woman left. Elizabeth is very quickly becoming my fav :lol:

The boys should definitely not have won that, the girls hospitality and sales on the candy floss were much better! The only flaw was the over-order of the wine really.

Glad Elizabeth stayed, I didn't like how Joanna and Sarah-Jane were bitching behind her back and trying to throw her under the bus.

Yeah the girls put on a much better event. The boys weren’t even ridiculed for using Harrison to sing off a sheet of paper

I didn’t like siobhan, but she shouldn’t have been fired because the difference in profit was so small and she put on a great event.

The girls event was miles better, but all Sir Alan was interested in was who made the most profit so can see why Siobhan was fired, but the other team so deserved to be served a refund with their cheap food and drink

Still at the end Siobhan said it was more Important for her to give them a great event than profit so she left with her head held high

Joanna never stops moaning and now she gets the project manager job!! Can see more arguments between her and Jade next episode

How Joanna won I’ll never know. I genuinely thought the boys had it sorted... then to throw each other under the bus like that! Wrong guy went - he went for reasons unrelated to the show which I think is wrong really. Michaela (oversized glasses) did nothing either imo. Harrison should have gone imo. Though I’d miss his cute self if he did :lol:

That was quite a dull episode actually, didn't think Ross was the worst in that team either.

Du dum dum dum dum :lol:

Either project manager to go please. I hate it when people who aren’t from a creative background think they know best. Taking selfies and video of your friends drunk and making a montage of it is not the same as spending years studying media.

Rant over :lol:

Will catch up on tonight's episode tomorrow morning but on the subject of Elizabeth, I found out the other day that a work friend has had dealing with Elizabeth in real life and she is apparently AMAZING at her job. Seriously astute, really professional - and every bit as kooky as she appears on the show. :lol:

Michaela has been really unlikeable on this. James has been clueless and has basically let Elizabeth dictate the whole thing.

You'd think they couldn't communicate as sub-teams throughout this as the correlation between the brands is terrible!

Anisa is just destroying their team's product :lol:

When they turned up to the medieval village they should have had a load of villagers from 1300s in black and white, with the car driving through the middle of the village with the Mum driving through it catching everyone’s attention, with a play on words along the lines of ‘be the modern mum’.

I love Elizabeth. She is kooky, but I think she’d be an amazing boss. She doesn’t play the blame game and is constantly looking to get the job done and moving onto the next task. My kind of colleague to be honest.

Yes they missed a trick not taking advantage of the old/new angle.
