Former runner-up Claire Young shares her thoughts on
episode ten of The Apprentice. This week she finally gets a double
firing in the boardroom.
For me this was one of the best episodes of the shows so far. It
was classic Apprentice viewing and I was soon shouting at my TV out
The task was to find top end, luxury, deals for a London deals
website. A bit like a posh Groupon.
We saw Stephen the Snake take on the project manager role after
begging to be saved last week and he went against Jade. I like Jade
and her career background is suited perfectly to this challenge so
I had high hopes for her.
Jade's team took the time to be strategic and worked out a plan
before racing off while Stephen's bunch dived straight into London
without any idea really. Thankfully Ricky managed to land some
great deals with fancy restaurants.
As someone who enjoys sales I found watching the candidates
trying at times - they were not prepared for meetings and failed to
work a calculator for basic maths in one pitch. Big time
Jade's team were led to victory by a brilliant spa deal they
agreed so we saw Stephen the snake back in the boardroom hot seat.
Personally Stephen and Gabrielle were both weak so I was wishing
for a double firing. This was granted and we see both waving
goodbye to Lord Sugar.
Jade with her superstar spa deal. Without this they would have
Stephen the Snake. Again. For being patronising, condescending
