Trick Question November 19, 2015 Share November 19, 2015 I was actually liking Selina more this week, until she didn't stop whinging about being banished to the replenishing job. I can't help but think that these complaints over who's doing what job (specifically, who's doing the most high-profile and important jobs) within a task happens literally every week, and it's just a question of how much the editors choose to show us. Surely all these type-A personalities are always jockeying for the biggest positions, apart from the under-the-radar types or candidates like the first guy fired this season that "didn't like sales." Brett doesn't seem like the strongest of candidates but his bluntness is pretty funny. He reminds me of Drax from Guardians of the Galaxy --- just completely literal at all times. David and (on the other side) Sam also did themselves no favours with staggering displays of ineptness. Sam was very, very lucky his team won. I did think it was an excellent choice of task, not only seeing who can't handle getting their hands dirty, but also with the pricing stratagem - you have to get it low enough to get the job, high enough to make a profit - and organisation. The pricing and organization, yes. The actual "getting your hands dirty" thing, probably not so much. Obviously Lord Sugar can't expect these people to be construction professionals with no training whatsoever, so David's error with the pipe measurements was hardly a big deal. That type of thing doesn't mean a damn when Sugar is choosing whose business to invest in --- "David, your plan is completely sound and may be the next Google, but eh, that shortened pipe in Week still nags at me. You're fired." The more important thing for this task is to at least give it an effort and to have common sense about your limitations. Case in point, Vana stepping in to stop Scott from promising the customer the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. 1 Link to comment
