It's on tonight and tomorrow night. It will be blue sky thinking overload.

The loud jacket woman looks a pain already

I knew Nick had left. He said in an interview that the filming is grueling and at 70 years old he simply didn't have the stamina - mind you, his TV career has taken off, starting with Countdown'. But isn't Claude one of the Advisers Alan Sugar has used in the interview round towards the end of each series?

£1.87 profit? It was obvious to those in the real world that £9 for a tuna nicoise salad was too high for street selling. April was a 'right proper madam' as Team Leader. It is one thing to be decisive - but to ignore team advice isn't the way forward. I liked Brett taking over the cooking of the fish cakes and then confirmed afterwards that he was a sous chef when Lord Sugar asked

Dan (on losing team) got off to a bad start having to be told to 'get his hands out of his pockets' by Lord Sugar at the introduction meeting. But then to sell "a big fat zero" wasn't looking very good for him. Quote of the programme by LordS about Dan's face-to-face selling: "Not so much Alexander the Great, more like Desperate Dan". (ROFL)

Ruth (bright jacket lady) appears to be a bit quirky - but she seems to be calmer than the rest. She's 47 years old and confident in her own skin. I am liking her and even Karren said that she had 'learned something' by watching her face-to-face selling techniques.

I predicted that April would bring Dan and Brett into the boardroom. (She totally ignored the team members who had contributed far less. They were under her radar!) However, I agreed with Lord Sugar's decision to fire Dan - and I don't always agree with him.

By the way folks, The Telegraph has a 'meet the candidates' site:

Why is it a double bill this week?

I have found the official 'Meet the Candidates' site:

The Apprentice, Series 11, BBC Official site

I am not sure why we have a double bill this week, but in the interview with Nick (on Loose Women), he said that filming starts at the beginning of summer and it is rigorous to keep up with scheduling. The final episodes are filmed later and even Nick and Karen didn't know who Lord Sugar has fired/hired in the final episode.

Is there something that happened on BBC that means they had to do catch-up; or they have to miss a week in the future? I don't know.

According to Nick, they were filming the final episode last week.
