We see a tired looking Steven answer the phone at 5:45 and be told that the cars will be there to pick everyone up in 45 minutes. Perhaps Lord Sugar doesn’t sleep? 6:30 start? A wee bit early to start work unless you have to travel a significant distance and you need to be there by nine.
This time the candidates have to make an advert and create a website to promote English Sparkling wine. The usual juggling of bods between the two teams and a short discussion on who is to be Team Leader were dealt with. This week we got Ricky Martin and Tom Gearing in those positions. Tom has a point to prove and Ricky needs to step up as he’s been hiding.
So off they jolly well go. Adam is out of his comfort zone but he does his best, Gabrielle does a good job, Jade gets through, Tom of course wins as he should have done given he’s in the wine business and, its all a bit messy for the other team.
Nick seems to do okay but he doesn’t do a whole lot, Ricky looses which puts his coat on a very shoogly peg, Jenna didn’t manage to recognise that a quality image was required for the video, rather than a bit of comedy and Stephen was MIA as usual, in fact I’d go so far as to say he was helping Jenna make things worse for herself.
In the boardroom Ricky got a hard time because he’s lost two tasks, Stephen was asked about his abilities and Jenna was sacked because she made a poor video. It should have been Ricky, he failed to manage his team and he allowed them to make decisions without him being fully aware of what was being done on his behalf. Steven should also have gone and, unless he wins the task next week he will be out.
I don’t think anyone was particularly good on this task. Lets hope they are better next week. It might help if they listen to Lord Sugar when he tells them about the task. Maybe they might want to listen to the bits, which are important? Not sure that they will though.
