....a bit porn star-y? Masses of fake hair, nails, loads of make up, lip gloss. Yikes! I don't know any senior women at work who look remotely like that.

Oh, and Karen Brady has upgraded her hair stylist this season, no?

you probably don't work in the right industry. Marketing and sales is all about image.

I grant you they are sadly plasticated

sad YANBU. It's really depressing, they as a group come across so badly. I blame the production team who clearly wanted eye candy for the men rather than interesting personalities. They are more like Big Brother contestants than anything. That blonde one with the very still weird face that couldn't add up in the brewing task - seriously, wtf?

Holly berry - woukd the right industry be the sex industry?

Marketing and sales is about a professional image that is aligned to the brand/corporate expectations. What message woukd you be sending based on that look?

I wouldn't buy anything off the guy with the weird eyebrows.

I agree. I've been really shocked by how they look. almost unprofessional.

KB on the other hand looks amazing. I love her hair this season.

HollyBerryBush Thu 16-May-13 20:33:26

I think you are being judgemental to say women who take care of themselves, use make up, hair and nail extensions are symptomatic of the sex industry.

Perhaps they like to look that way? But to ally them with sex workers is a tad OTT

Eye candy for the men, seriously? They are certainly not my idea of eye candy...
As I man, I can only assume they were chosen for their ability to pitch themselves well in the initial interviews. There's no way they were selected based on their looks.

It makes me laugh when they are running round everywhere in massive heels! I love my heels and I'd wear them for the presentation bits and the boardroom, but if I'm pounding the streets of London trying to sell ukeleles I'd def be in flats. Bet there's loads of outtakes of then falling over!

YANBU

I've been sat agog at the heavy layers of shiny make-up, comedy eyebrows and ratty, stringy, over-long hair extensions.

One them even wears brown lip-liner with shiny pink gloss shock

Porn star-tastic.

They all look like drag queens to me apart from Rebecca. Uzma looks like a man.

PenguinBear Thu 16-May-13 20:36:27

YANBU, we think they all look like barbie dolls.

Most of them seem quite fake looking! Too pretty! jealous

OwlinaTree Thu 16-May-13 20:36:54

On a serious note i agree with holly. You can take care of yourself and still be a serious business person, it's not one or the other.

RatRatRat Thu 16-May-13 20:37:13

I think they look nice. <hides>

FriedSprout Thu 16-May-13 20:38:07

They look like they all need a good wash, showing signs of age here. grin

YANBU

they really are a bunch of skanks this year and I'm amazed they are on the show... They are hopeless.

HollyBerryBush Thu 16-May-13 20:39:06

I'm amused at the Croydon face life brigade slating attractive young women

Tigglette Thu 16-May-13 20:39:54

Fried sprout that was my thinking too, they all just looked manky in my eyes.

RatRatRat Thu 16-May-13 20:39:59

Admittedly I am 26, with long hair and a considerable makeup collection. Perhaps that's it! grin

NorbertDentressangle Thu 16-May-13 20:40:09

Literally 30 seconds before I saw this thread title DD and I were discussing whether it was possible to look more fake and wear more make-up than some of these young women.

DD was watching one episode recently where they were all screeching over each other in a "LISTEN TO ME, I'M MORE IMPORTANT BECAUSE I'M SHOUTING LOUDEST SO I GET THE MOST SCREEN TIME" sort of way.

Dire.

YANBU

They remind me of Kirsty in Eastenders. They all look similar apart from the teacher one that went out first. The one with the hair up looks OK

Gooeyhead Thu 16-May-13 20:40:12

Fried I was going to say the same thing haha grin

kim147 Thu 16-May-13 20:40:46

Has there ever been a "plain" women on the Apprentice?

Gooeyhead Thu 16-May-13 20:40:49

By the way Fried not that your showing signs of age I was going to say they need a good wash!!! grin

RatRatRat Thu 16-May-13 20:40:53

Oh God, not that you are showing your age, just that it's an age thing. Ffs. I'm being offensive everywhere tonight!
