Sweet Smell of Success

This week on The Apprentice: a touch of alchemy from Melissa, a geometry lesson for Chris and a fairy-tale ending for Stella. In the season of goodwill, The Apprentice ditched the usual catalogue of bickering, bitching and screw-ups, to bring… Continue Reading →

Close Encounters of the Absurd Kind

This week on The Apprentice: a “verbal bashing” for Chris, “mental torture” for Joanna and a third-nipple tweaking for Jamie. Who could forget the sausage-making task that kicked off this year’s series of The Apprentice? Discord, confusion and gleaming heaps… Continue Reading →

Don't ask, don't tell

How many lists, countdowns, recaps and unnecessary retrospectives can you cram into just one month? It’s only mid-December and already I fear I’m about to be buried under the sheer weight of top 10s. In the spirit of the season,… Continue Reading →
