Looking forward to seeing the best business brains in Britain struggle to do anything

Look the same as the last lot, I gave up last year, I suspect this year will be identical.

I'd even go so far as to say, half way through they could slip an episode from last year and people wouldn't notice for a while!!

Seems like they will take them to new, exotic places to be useless this year.

It's more akin to paying to watch the occupants of Bedlam I think.

Candidates last year were awful, not a single one of them looked like a potential winner, it was just social media wannabe's on TV, rather like 'I'm an Apprentice get me out of here'.

Haha, same here usually, utter hatred for how useless they all are, but I do really enjoy the show as a whole.

I think this is the first year I'll not bother sadly. The format is really stale now and as said the candidates are just the same identikit idiots from one year to the next.

What is your biggest weakness?

Some people think it’s a weakness, but I think it’s a skill. I am able to handle pressure as I have been tested a number of times both professionally and personally. I can self-criticise and provide solutions to any issues, and I’m always constantly thinking ahead.
How tf is "handling pressure" a weakness? It's up there with "I work too hard" as a BS interview answer.

Quality of the candidates has really fallen since the earlier series of this show. They are just social media kids now.

I always manage only one or two episodes before feeling the need to throw a heavy object through the TV.

Which I guess means it is achieving its objective as (far from) 'reality' TV.
