Starting this thread early as I am heading out for the day. Be here! We have a new shower of cockwombles to point and laugh at.

Yay! Ready to cringe and feel sorry for some of them in equal measures.

I'm here, early granted, but it takes time to sort the 🍿🍫🍹...

They've certainly delivered on the cockwomble front...

Ross Fretten: Digital product consultant from Essex

Ross, 29, said: β€œI’m usually the smartest person in any room and I’ll make sure people know that.”

...and he's far from alone πŸ˜‚

I hate the first couple of weeks of it where it's just a colossal bunch of twats willy waving before they get knocked down to some form of normality (whatever normality is on Planet Deluded).

Dillite2 Wed 04-Oct-17 11:17:26

Ross from Essex should become besties with Karthick. Imagine the douchebaggery that that would create?

ChippingInLovesTheApprentice Wed 04-Oct-17 11:55:47

Fuck.

I was just going to add...' & that Stuart guy, Braggs was it? Field of ponies bloke'. And googled to check the spelling (actually Baggs), only to see he died in 2015. (Asthma).

He was show GOLD, totally fucking annoying, but you also couldn't help but love him & think that in real life he'd be much the same. I'm so very sorry for all of his friends & family πŸ’ He was only 27 & so full of life, it's a true tragedy, so very sad.

Miaow. I enjoy it a lot more once they're whittled down a lot bit. I find it hard to watch & keep up with the names, the thread, the nicknames...πŸ™ƒ But I'm looking forward to it all the same.

I was just reading about some ex-contestant who is blaming the show for making him fat and acting like a giant turd.

ChippingInLovesTheApprentice Wed 04-Oct-17 19:32:06

Oh? Which one?

Maybe I can blame the show for making me fat? Do you think I'll get a good pay out? I'm not a previous contestant, but I'm forced to eat a lot of popcorn & drink a lot of alcohol to get me through it 🀣

Yes, Stuart Baggs, RIP.

SB: "I am a brand."

Claude: "You are not a brand."

SB: "I am. I am a brand."

Claude: You are not a brand."

SB: (sullen) I could be.

Yay - can't wait.
Usually end up shouting at the TV for the first few week. Haven't read anything about any of them yet. Hoping they don't split men & women and watch the women look incapable of working together like they normally do.

KangaMummy Wed 04-Oct-17 19:45:42

Have you guys watched the thingy on iplayer showing them

gringringringrin

MyBrilliantDisguise Wed 04-Oct-17 20:04:00

But those women ARE incapable of working together!

dillite Wed 04-Oct-17 20:50:37

It was this guy, Daniel Lassman. Just look at him and that punch worthy face. I think I will be blaming the Apprentice for being fat as well.

Muddlingalongalone Wed 04-Oct-17 20:52:03

I know THEY are incapable but I feel like it's such a shit reflection of women in business and to an extent women in general.
This is prime time TV - loads of people watching might not know that everyday in normal offices isn't just like that...

dillite Wed 04-Oct-17 20:56:45

Only 4 more minutes to go! Get your snacks ready!

ChippingInLovesTheApprentice Wed 04-Oct-17 21:01:03

Nibble nibble

dillite Wed 04-Oct-17 21:01:48

What's with the 70's porn glasses?

ChippingInLovesTheApprentice Wed 04-Oct-17 21:02:07

Tell me 'sting in the tail' doesn't sell make up πŸ˜–

LineysRun Wed 04-Oct-17 21:03:21

I'm here.

HateSummer Wed 04-Oct-17 21:03:33

Those glasses are horrible!!!

dillite Wed 04-Oct-17 21:04:05

I would hate to be the first one to go in. But then I would get to sit down.

ChippingInLovesTheApprentice Wed 04-Oct-17 21:06:12

Lol @ the boys faces re Michaela πŸ˜‚

HateSummer Wed 04-Oct-17 21:06:39

Tory boy out first!
