    Apple logo on box, though tissues actually come off the same manufacturing line as all the others, there's at least a 20% price premium.

    but they wouldn't fall apart and go all soggy when you used them for their intended purpose i.e fill them with snot...

    Oh and how the hell did Michael survive again :eek:

    Poor Raif (Rafe? Raphe?). Didn't expect to see the other guys win, though in hindsight it was a bit obvious.

    Oh those would have the condensation problems FOR SURE! but because of the :apple: logo a bunch of people would say that you're just using them in the wrong climate or something.



    That Michael kid is sure lucky. What a worthless asstard... but most of them are.


    I like Lee and Claire has grown on me. Lucinda is just ok, but what a stubborn pushy brat. And what is with the permanently smug/indignant look on her face?

    I love when they do those aerial night shots of london. There was one bit that was especially cool, I tried finding the bit on iPlayer but couldn't. got this though...

    A guy from my office was in the show at the very end when they were previewing next weeks car episode. He was one of the peeps they were trying to flog their car club thing to. No doubt there will be more of him next week.

    Same here with Clare, thought she was just a gobby cow to start with but seems to be the best of that bunch of useless morons.

    Missed the preview of next weeks show, what car club are they doing?

    Don't know what it's called, but it looks like it's just one of those car clubs where you pay x thousands a year to be a member, and in return get a certain amount of days back where you can take our one of their very expensive sports cars.

    How hard can that be??? Surely it's a case of "Excuse me, if you give me £5,000 a year you can drive one of our Ferraris or Aston Martins for 20 days a year" could sell that to the not mega rich city folks all day long.

    Oh and I'm guessing at the prices, of course if it's 10-15 grand a year then that would be a different story.

    Oh, and wahoo, my 1000th post :D almost feeling I belong here now.

    I know, he's a real douchebag, isn't he?

    However they just got rid of one smarmy toff so maybe he is next.

    I just watched and i thought rafe's team made a better pitch. How Alex's team won with that 'this tissues are anti-bacterial" rhetoric of an ad...i will never know. Then again rafe's team didn't convey the product which was the point.

    They didn't win the pitch, Raef's teams was clearly better. Their problem was they almost entirely missed the point of what the product was in their TV ad.

    Yeah...shame really. I guess its down to the ladies, Lucinda or Claire. I was thinking maybe Lee but i get the feeling he's not creative enough, he's more of a hands-on type and i don't think its enough to get him through.

    Then again seeing as rafe was fired i wouldn't be all that surprised if the great mike won...its crazy enough to happen

    I'd like Claire if she dropped that piggin upward inflection.

    I watched it at about 3 am on the iPlayer. And when the bought up the point about the product it was quite clear as I can still remember from Alex's advert that it is an antibacterial tissue where as thinking back over Raef's I can only remember the small image of the tissue box at the bottom.

    I loved it how Raef's team could hardly contain themselves from laughing during Alex's advert and then went on a lost :D



    I remember seeing in an earlier episode a Zonda which didn't feature in that epsidoe which confused me but from what I recall from next weeks preview there is a Zonda in that so perhaps it was an errant edit.

    From what I recall there is going to be a Zonda, Koenigsegg, Spyker, some sort of Ferrari, an Aston and probably some others.

    edit: Here is the preview clip from the Beeb's site

    Just a warning for The Apprentice fans out there it is on tonight (50 minutes) rather than on Wednesday like usual.

    From the latest clip, I would say that if Michael is on the losing team he has to go. Usual forceful sales technique.

    And for car fans tonight is a must: it looks full of car porn.

    Ah, Michael. As my brother would put it: he's that big of a wanker he needs to use both hands. :D :eek:

    Please let this be the week...

    Thank **** the "odious little twat" has finally been fired.

    now looking forward seeing what Adrian Chiles has to say to him.

    And loved the way he chased that bloke down the street... classic TV
