navy ugg Telly Talk
And not only was it the last episode; it was also the final glimpse of so many much loved aspects of the show.No more Margaret. And no more montages of Philip dancing. Thank the Lord.The final task was based on chocolates, designing and selling.”I’ve invited some of the key people from chocolates to your presentations,” said Sr’Alan. You could tell James was dying to ask if Willy Wonka would be among them.Then past candidates returned to be put into either Team Yasmina or Team Kate.The big question was, would Team Kate pick boyfriend Philip? In the end, Team Kate did not. She allowed Philip, Philip’s invaluable advice and Philip’s dancing ability to leap off to Team Yasmina where he spent much of her time muttering about how people still don’t get Pantsman.”People don get it at the time. They will eventually.” We await the day.Yasmina set him to work choreographing a “nice and snappeee” dance routine while everyone else got on with the much more trivial stuff, such as actually inventing the chocolates.”It lukes like a crarkurr,” Lorraine blarneyed, still in her mysteriously acquired Irish accent.Over on Team Kate, Ben was proving equally helpful. His little mind was rattling around chocolates and threesomes, not to mention somehow using the number 69 as a selling point.”Ben, there’s no way in the world.” Kate said.”Frankly it sounds more like something to do with feminine freshness rather than chocolates,” said Nick.”It looks like it’s a box of Tampax,” said Debra.”Something you’d find in vending machines in gents’ loos,” was Sr’Alan’s reaction.The name was swiftly changed to Choc D’Amour and Kate stepped in to oversee the transformation of their ad campaign. Until this point we haven’t been big Kate fans but she seemed the deserving winner. Ominously, though, the deserving winner never actually wins The Apprentice.Meanwhile, Yasmina was back to her Week Two strategy of sprinkling basil on everything and hoping for the best. During the filming of her ad,
even the poor actors were begging: “Can we spit it out?” as they tried Yasmina’s “electrifying” strawberry and basil chocolate.Come the presentations Kate, again, outclassed Yasmina’s sergeant major style.”IT’S SEXY! IT’S FUN!” Yasmina barked at her crowd, before trying to whoop up a bit of atmosphere. “Orange and coriander. What do you have?””An ingestive nightmare?” we wondered.Nevertheless, come the boardroom bit, Sr’Alan’s hiring finger pointed at Yasmina. Even though her chocolates were inedible, Sr’Alan wasn’t bothered about the taste. The price was right. Poor old Kate was left feeling as robbed as someone who’d forked out a fiver for a box of orange and coriander chocolates. It’s not as bad as the Dewberry versus Badger travesty of 2007, but it’s still not an inspiring decision.Anyway, after 12 weeks of crazy, blood shedding rivalries, it’s Yasmina off to work in Sr’Alan’s digital signage department. What a fantastic prize! We give her six months.Apart from Shopping Channel Task and Annual Advertising Balls Up, Interview Week has to be one of our favourite Apprentice episodes. truth economising, Posh Boy Simon fielding complaints from his tenants. And those two went on to win the thing!All the familiar faces on the Sr interview panel of associates were back with one exception bristling chopped Cockney geezer who has maybe been scared off by Claire attempts to flirt with him last year. We missed him. The bloke they got in instead wasn half as cutting.Regardless, we were all poised to see Perfect Kate squirm and stutter or Shouty Deb rah get frogmarched out by a couple of coppers for threatening behaviour. Sadly, none of the above took place. Perfect Kate rattled off perfect answer after answer in deadpan Brummie. Debra managed to rein in her scarier tendencies.In fact,
the biggest casualty of Interview Week was the one we always suspected was going to come a cropper at this stage poor old James.
