Based purely on sad-sack impressions, Charles Burns is going to hurtle out in week 1.

I'm sure he was only kept in to rile things up for at least one more week :lol:

It's nearly always the boys team that seem to lose the first task. It's like they need a task or two to get the alpha strutting out of the way before they get used to eachother and start using logic.

Never be a project leader on the first task. Everyone is tearing each other a new one rather than working. It's like herding cats.

Heard a few people suggest that the PM should be given immunity for the first week seeing as it's such an impossible job. Makes a certain kind of sense.

God above what a bunch of blithering spunktrumpets.

Charles has a face that just begs to be punched, and those stupid glasses don't help his cause.

I enjoyed the Honest Subtitles version that the BBC puts up on the iPlayer.

Oh, and I agree with Jez...

It's actually fairly even.

It does seem crazy to want to be PM on the first task; it must be impossible to organise everyone's egos, and you've very little idea of what peoples' skillsets are. Still, common sense would suggest that in a food vendor task, missing the lunch shift is always going to be disastrous, but I found it astounding that the Boys' team spent three times as much for that buffalo meat as the girls did their beef. Frankly I think the task was lost as early as that. Even if they did manage to sell their burgers for the ridiculous price they were talking about in the car, I doubt they'd have had enough stock to actually win.

Bit of a dumpster fire from both teams tonight. The boys' freehand mural was a particular low point though :lol:

And red, yellow and blue? :-k

I've gotta be honest, I got confused as to what the profit margin had to do with anything in the end. The whole purpose of the task seemed a complete mess to me. Like the wallpaper.

Yeah, it didn't exactly help that the experts didn't bother to come up with a winner either. I do have to wonder how much time they were actually given to choose furniture, because to have nothing that was actually useable in a hotel context seems remarkable.

I don't think the candidates understood what "luxury" actually is; it certainly isn't kitsch union flag furniture or a generic golf-themed room at a sodding golf course (which just reminded me of themed rooms at disneyland). I'm surprised to see that Jeff went; granted he maybe didn't do as much as he should have done, but the PM didn't provide any real leadership (not to mention he actually told Sugs to quiet down), which is usually a major failing point. Granted, I think I would have fired Jeff on the spot for trying to claim that his breakdancing made him a creative type.

I think Jeff was on thin ice having been pretty close to the exit last week as well. I also don't think AS was too impressed that he (Jeff) refused to carry out the role the PM wanted him to do.

I can sorta see why he didn't want to do it. He didn't want to be typecast as the numbers guy simply because he has a maths degree, something that made him no more qualified than anyone else. It's like how everyone assumes I'm good with languages because I have a Linguistics degree, which isn't true at all. Anyone can add up, budgeting is more complicated than that.
