He's a fucking out and out misogynistic bastard!


(1) 'Put Neil on the phone'- When Dr Leah refused to agree with his shite tactics.

(2) 'I'll be bringing Leah, obviously, and Natalie' - EH? EH? Did I miss something?

Thank Fuck he got the boot!

it is only a tv programme....just saying...


ItsallisnowaFeegle · 28/05/2013 22:09

Quite right, quite right but he's still a misogynistic prick and it's how he was treating the female contestants that makes me mad, more than the programme.

However, I take your point on board and I'll breathe!

He's being hammered for it on You're Fired, which is nice!


OwlinaTree · 28/05/2013 22:11

yes his behaviour was a bit off towards Natalie in the car. But they do heavily edit the programme remember


hobnobsaremyfavourite · 28/05/2013 22:13

And from what I've seen none of the seem particularly ....erm...likeable...or intelligent.

YABU I thought it was a really cheap accusation made by Natalie who thought she was in desperate trouble IMO.


gallifrey · 28/05/2013 22:16

He's being even more of a twat on bbc2 now!


ItsallisnowaFeegle · 28/05/2013 22:19

I missed the end of 'The Apprentice', so didn't actually see 'The Board Room', but I agree I may well be being unreasonable...I just don't think so!

I'm enjoying BBC2 though!

I am aware that all of these 'types' of shows are heavily edited but he is transparent.

I really don't think so. He asked to speak to a man over a woman on the phone, he wouldn't let Natalie use the phone and basically ignored her, he put his hand in Leah's face to stop her talking.

Two men who had majorly contributed towards losing the task were not even considered to be brought back into the Boardroom. One even said he's got away with it.

Yanbu, misogynistic man, who barely denied it


ItsallisnowaFeegle · 28/05/2013 22:29

Thank fuck I'm not on my own in thinking this!

Aargh spoiler!


AKissIsNotAContract · 28/05/2013 22:31

YANBU, what a misogynistic cunt.


RockOnRuby · 29/05/2013 09:40

Also didn't hold the door for Natalie on their way into the boardroom. Just let it close before her face!


FrozenNorthPole · 29/05/2013 09:41

YANBU, delighted he was fired. Misogynist through and through.


Tee2072 · 29/05/2013 09:49

I haven't seen it, although I knew he got fired.

He sounded like a right twat.


sarahtigh · 29/05/2013 09:53

he is an idiot and misogynistist but leah would not listen about going to souk which would have definitely been cheaper than the mall but glad he got fired as an stupid man who wants to be like napolean exile on elba sounds like a good idea aprt from the folks that live on elba!


Hummuschocolate · 29/05/2013 09:57

YABU if you're surprised that an Apprentice candidate is making you fume, tis the way of the show.

And he did get his comeuppance in the boardroom and on YBF


IneedAyoniNickname · 29/05/2013 10:07

He's a prick, and his pronunciation of the word assumed made me stabby!

But why do the female contestants have such dodgy make up?


ItsallisnowaFeegle · 29/05/2013 10:17

Hummus - Most of the contestants make me shout at the TV. It's part and parcel of The Apprentice and their unbelievable behaviours is one of the reasons I love the programme (as I don't normally deal with such outrageous characters in my professional or personal life).

This was more to do with Zeeshan's outrageous treatment of the female candidates, not so much his performance.

I'm just Shock at his stinking attitude toward female contemporaries.

I'm so glad he was slapped down on BBC2. He may actually have learned something.

My favourite line of the show was
"how big is a foot"
and they all went with it!!!!
It is UNBELIEVABLE that these people seem to think they are intellingent.


Tenacity · 29/05/2013 12:03

Why would you believe what you see on that show? You do realise that most of these shows are heavily edited, don't you?
They can make you look good or bad... Wink


ItsallisnowaFeegle · 29/05/2013 12:24

I don't believe everything I see.

As I mentioned up-thread, I know that shows like this are heavily edited and are done so for sensationalist reasons but my opinion on this particular guy won't be changing any time soon.

xylem8 · 29/05/2013 12:25

Leah was completely unmanageable which is why he wanted to speak to another member of the sub-team.


ItsallisnowaFeegle · 29/05/2013 13:20

I think that's a fair point, however, his job was to work out how best to manage his number 2, not to attempt to further alienate her. IMHO
