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

Bottle blonde pouters don't float my boat - have you got the whole line up because the ones you have linked to are distinctly average.

"intelligent" - that remains to be seen.\

Found the whole line up:

nope, definitely a case of 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder'.

Natalie is aesthetically attractive, I wouldn't give a second look to any of the blokes and I'd be staring at all the women trying to work out how much botox is in their faces.

HomelessAngua Tue 07-May-13 21:04:52

They all look rather plastic...

MamaMary Tue 07-May-13 21:08:22

Leah looks a lot older than 24 in her demo.

BatmanLovesVodkaAndCherryade Tue 07-May-13 21:09:47

Bloody hell - all that hair!

Triumphoveradversity Tue 07-May-13 21:36:38

Eye of beholder and all that and not attractive to mine

Sunnywithshowers Tue 07-May-13 21:39:59

Who's the guy with the botox face, wonky eyebrows and red tie?

YABU, btw. <boak>

creighton Tue 07-May-13 21:40:16

they can't be that intelligent. if they were as good as they claim to be they wouldn't need Alan Sugar's 'measly 100k' as they would all be rich alreadly

riskit4abiskit Tue 07-May-13 22:02:26

One of them has been attacked by the tweezer fairy bad stylee!

Tigglette Tue 07-May-13 22:04:11

Well they've not been chosen for competence have they... Muppets one and all!

HollyBerryBush Tue 07-May-13 22:06:07

We have it sky+'d ... watching it now - nope - they are all a bit 'meh'.

I only watch it for Nick and Margret sad so it's pointless.

Doubtfuldaphne Tue 07-May-13 22:08:47

For the women, yes.
Men- not so choosy. My old school friend was in the auditions and he's no oil painting. Mind you, he didn't make it to tv!

Binkybix Tue 07-May-13 22:11:06

They're not particularly good looking I don't think. The women look super fake for the most part...

Remotecontrolduck Tue 07-May-13 22:11:31

They certainly weren't picked for their intellect!

Uzma's make up is bothering me the most at the moment though. Her foundation, hair colour, coloured contacts are all just wrong for her ethnicity. It's a shame because I reckon she's really good looking under all that crap on her face.

The fact she runs a cosmetics company also is worrying confused

HollyBerryBush Tue 07-May-13 22:12:41

men that don't shave look dirty and grubby and skanky - therefore they would not get my business

Binkybix Tue 07-May-13 22:13:14

Agree Uzma is prob pretty underneath all the fake stuff

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

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

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

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

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 !

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.

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

YY to David Gest lookalike!

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.

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

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

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.


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?

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.

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?

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.

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

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

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...

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

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

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.

ipswitch Wed 08-May-13 08:41:27

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.

Peevish Wed 08-May-13 09:22:30

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.

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!

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

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

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.

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.

thermalsinapril Wed 08-May-13 10:22:53

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