The Apprentice October 20, 2010

Nah, not me, but the Beeb’s latest installment of The Apprentice. I used to be a fan but now I’m not. It’s turned into a nouveax version of the Generation Game. The other week the candidates were making sausages; this week they’ve had a stab at making bread rolls and croissants.

Come on, how many wannabes in business, be they working in marketing, finance, sales or auditing for that matter, know how to make sausages and bread rolls? If you let a bunch of amateurs having a go at food production, the likelihood is the end product may be slightly awry. If I wanted to work in a bread shop and dish out sausage rolls, I’d be working in Greggs.

I’m sure the candidates probably thought the same but the thought of a juicy hundred grand salary with Lord Sugar Cubes kept them motivated. However, I’m beginning to think that The Apprentice is falling flat as a pancake.
