to think that the contestants for the Apprentice 2013 have been selected for being good looking?

The Contestants

Damn them for being both intelligent and attractive envy wink

In all seriousness, it's slightly annoying that most TV producers seem to think that it is necessary to make every one on TV "stereotypically attractive". hmm

Most of them look as if they think they're more attractive than they actually are.

MsJupiterJones Wed 08-May-13 10:03:24

Eh? Good looking? Intelligent?

I thought the end of that thread was going to say 'arseholes'. In which case YWNBU.

DoctorRobert Wed 08-May-13 09:33:01

Really? DH and I thought they were one of the ugliest collections of people we'd ever seen on there! Most of the men are quite peculiar looking and at least one of the women looks like a transvestite.

Mehrida Japan Wed 08-May-13 09:29:11

I didn't immediately think David Gest, I thought Andrew Lloyd Webber. Maybe their lovechild?

nosleeptilever Wed 08-May-13 09:27:40

My dh thought they were all munters this go round. I never think Apprentice contestants are attractive because they are such knobends. I did like Tom the inventor from a couple seasons ago, yum!

I only saw the end, but the first thing that struck me was that all the long straggly-glam hair on the women looked deeply unprofessional. The only two I liked the look of (based purely on what they looked like in the boardroom, as I didn't see any more) was the one who was fired, and the pale woman who wore her hair in a big bun. And the latter may have just been relief she didn't have straggly hair and an orange tan.

I thought the woman who was fired looked lovely on the Dara O'Briain after show thing.

I don't think they are attractive at all.
So far Im not impressed with their intelligence either.
Fake looking women plastered with makeup. Yuk.
Didn't find any of the men hot either.

Don't think I'll bother watching again tonight, finding it all a bit old hat and been there , done that, bought the T shirt etc.

Im surprised there was another series TBH.

DonDrapersAltrEgoBigglesDraper Wed 08-May-13 01:40:38

They all look very TOWIE.

Having moved away from the UK a couple of years ago, this suddenly strikes me as such a British look. The piled-on slap, overdone brows, orange-coloured skin and very obviously extentioned and highlighted hair. And a good dose of Botox.

They do not look good with it, but then again, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Plenty of people obviously appreciate that look.

JustinBsMum Wed 08-May-13 01:40:38

I bet it's Neil Clough or Jaz Ampar-?? - bet anyone???

giraffacake Wed 08-May-13 01:17:25

Slightly retracting my original statement having watched tonight's episode!

They make me laugh too! I only put the show on so I can have a good giggle. I also loved how one of them said "but you're a doctor!" like it was an insult...

gaelicsheep Tue 07-May-13 23:52:26

I think at least half of them are recycled from previous series.

uncongenial Tue 07-May-13 23:42:08

I thought they were of an older age than usual? Not that that has any bearing on attractiveness.

But what I did see was lots of trowelled on heavy make-up, hair extensions, but certainly no natural beauties.

kotinka Tue 07-May-13 23:36:51

fecking phone has its own opinion! I was trying to say yabu, what about the Dracula lookalike!

kotinka Tue 07-May-13 23:35:12

yanbu grin

DameFanny Tue 07-May-13 23:34:43

Yabu - Alex is neither good looking nor intelligent. Hope he stays in though as I want to see whether he keeps up the eyebrow thing over the weeks - will the early morning cameras catch him plucking or waxing?

Jinsei Tue 07-May-13 23:31:18

Really? I was struck by what an ugly bunch they were this year. Though it was difficult to tell with the women, could barely see them under all the slap that they were wearing.

LimitedEditionLady Tue 07-May-13 23:28:04

i am very amused by the things they say about themselves.i actually laugh.
"Im like a machete in the jungle" was my favourite line.
its the arrogance too,ask them if they can sell some water "yes ive won awards in selling,i always sell the most,im always on top"she just asked if you can sell sone bottled water!!! They talk about it like they are going to actually kill each other to win.i cringe for them,why do they do that to themselves?

thebody Tue 07-May-13 22:35:13

No totally disagree as was just discussing with my dds. They thought the women looked so ott with hair and thick makeup that they looked like transvestites.

The men are no oil paintings either.

The gobby 'education entrepreneur' who was fired well God help us if she is trying to improve children's literacy. I think she said something like 'please give me feedback on my projectmannerismus' or some such.

If they were that bloody clever they wouldn't need Sugars cash. They would have allready succeeded.

LOVE IT

LastTangoInDevonshire Tue 07-May-13 22:30:19

How can they possibly think they come across as professional with all that fake hair??

HoHoHoNoYouDont Tue 07-May-13 22:29:42

I must have been watching a different series because I didn't think any of them were all that in the looks dept.

Binkybix Tue 07-May-13 22:19:41

YY to David Gest lookalike!

WipsGlitter Tue 07-May-13 22:19:41

They're so identikit - men and women. Long straggly hair - check. Shed loads of make up - check. Debenhams business wear - check.

OwlinaTree Tue 07-May-13 22:15:49

You thought they were good looking!?
They all looked incredibly airbrushed to me. Not very natural at all. One guy looked like David Gest !

SneezySnatcher Tue 07-May-13 22:15:48

YABU. Nick Hewer, on the other hand, gets foxier every season!

aldiwhore Tue 07-May-13 22:14:33

They're mostly not attractive when they open their mouthes, they are exceptionally groomed though.
