I've been awol.

Shall I bother to (a) watch last week and (b) rtft.

And I need amusing, because I'm home and cold and peeling and necking wine

RedPencils Wed 03-Jul-13 18:55:49

The count went last week, should have been Myles

Still left
Dr Leah, who got a bit shrieky in the BR
Fake Stella
The short fella
The 'I'm so gorgeous people hate me one' can't remember her RL name or her MN name

The did ready meals. Think they're selling tat on the market tonight.

There's only 3 weeks left, come on you can do it.

ChippingInWiredOnCoffee Wed 03-Jul-13 19:20:26

Looks like the official thread to me Mary.

Don't bother watching last weeks, totally not worth it.

You have to bother - I neeeeeeeeeeeed you to get me through this shit series grin

RedPencils - I think you mean Luisa?! Though can't remember what we are calling the shrieking harpy.

Maryz Wed 03-Jul-13 19:20:32



There is something odd about Myles - what's his business idea, because it must be something good.

I like the market tat one. They'll all buy the wrong stuff. Except Neckbeard, who is growing on me.

Maryz Wed 03-Jul-13 19:24:50

Well, Luisa is a shrieking harpy. But possibly not the shrieking harpy.

I'm amazed NornIron is still there. And I'll miss the eyebrows.

I have my nicknames for the women mixed up. Not that it really matters, none of them will win anyway, it's between Myles and Neckbeard, and has been from the start I reckon. Unless the little one with glasses has a phenomenal business idea.

RedPencils Wed 03-Jul-13 19:26:17

Yes, that's right Luisa.

I quite liked Myles till last week. He massively cocked up the whole thing. Alex only went because his business idea is a rubbish. He must gave a brilliant business plan.

Maryz Wed 03-Jul-13 19:26:43

I shall keep this bumped above the other one.

So we don't get mixed up.

Maryz Wed 03-Jul-13 19:27:53

I missed Alex's business idea.

In the 0.1 seconds between Andy Murry winning and me grabbing the remote, ds2 has managed to put the X-box on hmm. So I can't catch up on last week.

Oh well.

Oh. I wished it was CVS
But market shite still mildly entertaining.

namechangea Wed 03-Jul-13 19:38:27

Is neckbeard Neil Clough?

MollyBerry Wed 03-Jul-13 19:41:24

Myle's business plan is to do with the luxury brand sector and branching out something online. They don't ever really go into depth so you never really know (at this stage anyway)

RedPencils Wed 03-Jul-13 19:42:34

Neck ears = Neil

Alex was going to set up law firm despite having no legal qualifications. Turns out its some kind of call centre.

RedPencils Wed 03-Jul-13 19:43:25

Neck*beard*. Wtf am I on about?

SconeInSixtySeconds Wed 03-Jul-13 19:43:56

Luisa = Wabbit
Neil Clough = Neckbeard
Francesca = FakeStella
Leah = NornIron
Myles = thinks he is MrMonaco
Jordan = don't think we ever came up with a nickname for him!

ChippingInWiredOnCoffee Wed 03-Jul-13 19:47:27

I missed how we came up with NornIron's nickname.

Maryz Wed 03-Jul-13 19:48:41

Thank you Scone.

How could I forget Wabbit?

Jordon is extraordinarily forgettable isn't he? He either has a shit-hot business plan or is in fact invisible irl. In fact, has he ever even been in the bottom three?

I like neckears [arf].

SconeInSixtySeconds Wed 03-Jul-13 19:49:21

Geographical location of accent... grin

Maryz Wed 03-Jul-13 19:49:56

Because that's how Them From Up There speak.

You know, Northern Ireland, with as few consonants as possible, so NornIron, all one word grin

SuePurblybilt Wed 03-Jul-13 19:58:42

Jordan is Hofsteader I reckon.
Have we not done selling market tat?

I have a vague memory of mugs and union jacks. Was that last year?

It's all got a bit blurry at this stage.

SuePurblybilt Wed 03-Jul-13 20:01:56

Northern Irish people have ALWAYS been NornIron on the Prentice thread. Tis law. Creepy Jim was last year, member?

KareninsGirl Wed 03-Jul-13 20:10:59

I cannot wait for the professional interview/grilling episode!
