Luke Owen reviews the second episode of The Apprentice Series 9…
I said yesterday that Bopping Tim was one of my favourite candidates due to his Tigger like attitude. So it’s kind of sad to see him fired at this early stage of the game – especially when he shouldn’t have been the one to go.
The girls beer, a mix of rhubarb and caramel, did cause Uzma to have some issues with Luiza who seems to struggle sticking to the role she’s given. Uzma would later come to blows with Rebecca too, only she seemed to come out better from that exchange and I’m still not entirely sure how. While Rebecca was closing a deal – closing, mind – Uzma tried to jump in with another offer. For no reason. One of my big bug bears with this show is how everyone thinks they’re the best salesman or pitch and want to show that at every opportunity.
But long story short, Bopping Tim met with the Finger Point of Doom and became the second “casualty of the board room”. He did seem like the easy scape goat to blame, but I don’t think he was truly at fault for the failure of this task.
