To think a lot of the women on The Apprentice look...

....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?

They all look weird. The one with the brown hair and the bun looks like Miss Hardbroom!

Of course they've all been chosen for their looks.

Bring back Margaret.

She'd sort them out.

She held more authority with one raised eyebrow than all of them put together (men included).

I liked Jaz and I like Rebecca, Francesca and Leah!!! The comedian on The Apprentice, You're Fired on the first week said that some of the contestants have come straight from the make-up room on Take Me Out!!! That made me laugh grin

You'd almost think TV and the media are obsessed by appearance grin

And they say there's a problem with body image and self esteem

They look like they've been scraped a a (dirty) night club dance floor at 2am.
Maybe they used their big business brains to negotiate a multi-buy deal at the hair extensions shop.

Yy to Margaret! They're a bitchy group as a whole too, ganging up on wee East Asian one and tall one with Croydon facelift bun sad Uzma is te worst.

<wavers between feminism and sleb gossiping>

An improvement on Katie Hopkins, surely??

I was saying to someone they look really glam this year compared to how they looked in the first couple of years of the apprentice where they seemed to wear very dull work wear.

I also think Karen Brady looks lovely, like Kelly brooks older and wiser sister. Uzma looks like if Helen ledderer and Rita ora had a child.

It wasn't like this in Ruth Badger's day !

LEMisdisappointed Thu 16-May-13 20:47:10

I would never get on the apprentice, cos im a minger!

But yes, that blonde one last night looked like pamela anderson with too much lip filler!

Relaxedandhappyperson Thu 16-May-13 20:49:42

Have they all got botox and lip fillers as well as the massively-overdone eye make-up? The girls look REALLY weird this year. Strikingly so. No one looks like that in my office.

The boys look a bit odd too, with the not-sure-if-it's-a-beard-or-not thing going on for several of them. And eyebrow man.

Surely looking professional is the minimum requirement? And I'm very much one for minimum effort when it comes to appearance!

LEMis ah, but are you a minger that gives 150% ?

You could still be in with a chance grin

Uzma = Zelda from the Terrahawks. Came to me in a flash of genius during yesterdays episode grin

Its makes for some interesting talking points when watching it with 13 yo DD.

Thankfully she can see that wearing high heels when you're running around a DIY store is not the cleverest of moves. She's also decided that the ones wearing too much make-up look like drag queens and that some of them (sorry don't know names as I've only seen bits of it) are too bossy and forceful, not allowing others to make their point.

I miss Badger sad

simplesusan Thu 16-May-13 20:52:54

I agree op.

It's the first thing I noticed.

There are all thin wearing tight fitting dresses and so much slap.

I wanted to drag a comb through their hair last nigt, after washing it first.

Also why the silly blue contact lenses, they look ridiculous.

Have to say I also think the guy with hair all over his neck looks totally scruffy and a right twat.

HootShoot Thu 16-May-13 20:53:30

Oh I loved the badger! I do think there is a big difference between looking after yourself and this lot. Look at Karen she manages to look beautiful, feminine and professional. They don't really promote business women well IMO.

theoriginalandbestrookie Thu 16-May-13 20:59:25

Agreed and on a vaguely related note. You know the bit where someone rings up and the person who answers the phone flaps their arms around like a helicopter, hugely surprised that on the show called The Apprentice they are being ringed up to do a task.

Anyways you know that bit, and then they go Lord Sugar will meet us in 30 minutes at the Industrial village, cut to slightly pervy shots of everyone in their pjs/short nighties.

Then 30 minutes later the girls and even the boys appear with hair coiffed and the girls have their make up trowelled on. There is no way they have done that in anything less than an hour. Grr, annoys me.

Agree though - loving Karen Brady, although there is always a special place for Margaret in my heart.

NorbertDentressangle Thu 16-May-13 21:00:24

Its turning into a Jezza Kyle style slanging match now.

NorbertDentressangle Thu 16-May-13 21:00:57

The programme that is, not this thread wink

That drives me bonkers theoriginal, it's so staged.

Also, the fact that in such a mahoosive mansion, there is only one phone downstairs in the hallway.

Who are they kidding?

YoniOno Thu 16-May-13 21:05:42

They never used to have those pervy shots did they?

According to Grazia or some such, the prettiest girl one is shagging the posh moronic bloke now the series has ended.

squoosh Thu 16-May-13 21:06:19

I agree.

I'm itching to give most of them a haircut or at least a hair bobble, what's with all the cascading tresses, they look so messy. And I'm mesmerised by Uzma's look, the blonde hair, blue tinted lenses, pale makeup, it just looks so startling. She'd look much better if she went with her natural looks.

The Welsh eyebrow man looks like Frank Sidebottom.

XBenedict Thu 16-May-13 21:08:44

Was one of the first things noticed OP! Surely if they had anything about them they would take one look at Karen, who I appreciate is quite a bit older than them, and see that that is not how they are expected to dress - especially if they want to be taken seriously. I'm not suggesting they mirror Karen but the difference is vast!!!!

squoosh grin

If someone came to pitch to me looking like,they've just come in from the night before (skyscraper heels, tight n bright dresses, loads of cleavage and tons of slap) I wouldn't feel that they were being serious. Then again, I worked in the City where it was suit central. There is one with a hugely irritating voice.

Miss Can't be Wrong is a bit odd looking. She seems to have been coloured in by a five year old with sharpies. Nothing seems to be quite the right hue (and she's supposed to be a cosmetics entrepreneur or some such).
