    Lord Sugar fired the wrong lass last night. Either of the other two for crying out loud.

    She was bloody annoying though.

    Should have been Jackie.

    Jasmine's a Coventry kid isn't she?

    Should have been the Irish one. I'm glad I don't have to listen to that horrible accent any more though.

    Indeed. Geez!!

    Thought it was very amusing that we were watching and could hardly understand what she was saying and yet she put herself forwards to be the person to try and communicate with the Maltese.

    Ha! If we were struggling what chance did the locals have!!

    He's bloody done it again. Yes the lad buggered up the pitch but those other tossers in the boardroom were twats, especially that idiot Curran. FFS .

    Should have been Kurran sacked and if not him, Frank.

    Yep, this David did write, but he was given a very strict remit. Has to be a superhero, has to be in space.

    As soon as they conjured the idea up I turned to my daughter and said 'the boys are going to lose'.

    Crap name, crap idea.

    Again, I said to my daughter, if they are going to have this Benji going to planets they could at least have him go there are learn some facts about each planet, so travel to Saturn, save the day, learn some facts about Saturn etc. Then you have the adventure, plus it's a little bit educational

    Sacked the wrong fella and I can only assume someone from the Beeb whispered in Lord Sugar's ear and said 'keep that Kurran in, he's an idiot'.

    Which he truly is.

    The second Kurran mentioned how vital it was that he is part of a pitch, you could put your life savings on him completely ballsing it up.

    He seems to be good value for sheer delusion which goes against the idea of the show but is good for people watching it in dismay at how stupid they are, which really must be a large part of the audience now.

    Yup. And that statement when asked why they chose Benji, 'Well we knew it was a name' is right up there with the daftest ever Apprentice comments.

    The most I have never paid is for the Krispy Kreme ones and I think they are around £1.55-£1.65 each.

    I would never pay £3 plus for a donut.

    Ha. Daft. Just sprinkle the tiniest bit of mild chilli powder on them, or have it within the donut.

    I don't understand why they all felt the need to stick things on the top of their donuts. It was madness.

    I said my daughter right off the top of my head, why don't they go for cinnamon and ginger, or papaya and passion fruit, or blueberry and coconut?

    They could have made donuts that were slightly off the grid but would have been delicious and they didn't need to just stick custard creams on the top of them and all the other crap. They looked awful.

    They're a bunch of numpties.

    Jackie should clearly have gone last night. It was her idea that took up all their time and resources and then brought in the smallest amount of money.

    I know. It's still entertaining though.

    I think now it is all about watching them make complete arses of themselves.

    Kurran may be both the best and worst contestant I've ever seen and there have only been three episodes so far. I want him to make it to the end, despite all evidence suggesting that he's barely capable of tying shoelaces.

    And I do think they will keep him on for comedy value.

    Why is that woman wearing those trampy piercings and trying to sell stuff? She may as well have a spider web tatooed on the side of her head.

    My favourite part was how he admitted to knowing nothing about women's shoes but yet spent the entire time criticising the choices. Next week with him as PM has the potential to be an all-time great episode

    I liked the "He did even less than me" comments.

    Also, how long does he need to wear a sling for?

    I am hoping they dispense with the usual classical score in the background and go for circus big top music instead.

    This week's ejection was spot on. Deluded, arrogant and as thick as pig shit.
    Pangaea sounds like some bloody strain of the trots for crying out loud.

    Both campaigns were a pile of crap. Kurran's effort was just crappier.

    So many could have been fired through their incompetence on the task on both sides.

    Lost most of my interest in the show now, it lives on delusion and stupidity rather than quiet proficiency.

    what worries me is these "contestants" are supposed to be great business people and the future of our economy.....surely there has to be better suited people out there that can actually do a job from week 1 rather than the current set up of contestants

    In the current climate of being offended, I’m going to have to call you out on that statement. The poor lad has a broken arm, of course he’s going to struggle with laces!

    Anyone else pick up on the what I can only describe as reverse sexism on display from the Beeb?

    Nearly every episode this series (if not all) has had clips of the boys dressed in next to nothing in the house, so bare chested and just in their tight underwear. Totally disproportionate to the girls, who all seemed to be shown dressed a lot more modestly.

    Seems like they are trying to make up for previous seasons.

    Been every episode I think. Definitely something I picked up on. All boys in their underwear and not the girls.

    The American woman modelling the party hostess should have been told to stop doing the arm movements after the first time.

    That woman with the piercing by her eye, I usually don't mind that but hers looks like it's going to rip out any second. Thought of that gives me the proper heebie-jeebies.
