Sir Lord Alan Bloody Sugar Gets Camp

Retro Camping TrailerEpisode 7 of The Apprentice was very camp (in part, thanks to Jason) for the selling task on the Camping and Caravanning Exhibition at The NEC. Each team had to pick two low-value items from a selection on offer as well as one high ticket (SLABS’ words, not mine) item. Seeing as winning the task depends entirely upon selling ability, I was very keen to see who was truly any good at flogging things. continue reading

Sir Lord Alan Bloody Sugar’s Flat-Pack Clap-Trap

We saw the second week/third instalment of The Apprentice tonight and watched the two teams squirm as uncomfortably as a child wearing their older sibling’s, too short, too tight, hand-me-downs. In tonight’s episode, each team had to design, produce and market an item of flat-pack furniture which would later retail for £75.00. continue reading
