Jedi Jim wins the prize for talking – #Apprentice

Winning is pie in the sky for Venture

Here are my favourite bits from last night’s episode of BBC’s The Apprentice.

Jedi Jim on putting himself forward as project manager – “I’ve got two girls on board who’ll probably appreciate a wee bit of direction” Um, actually Jim, they don’t look as though they appreciated it (and the way they turned on him in the boardroom proved it!).

Susie, trying to think of Mexican-sounding names for their fast food restaurant – “they always have names with ‘El’-something, don’t they? What’s ‘El’ mean, anyway?”

Tom, trying to come up with great British names for pies – “Was Byron a vegetarian, do we know?” and his big breakthrough in maritime history – “Did Columbus discover the potato? We could call it the Columbus Pie”. Actually Tom, Columbus was Italian and no, Walter Raleigh discovered the potato. D’oh!

“I’m Macho Nacho Man” – of course you are Jim.

“We’re going to go a bit slower today” – Jim, on day two, after day one’s feedback suggested the biggest criticism of their fast food outlet was the speed of service.

“The pies are a great idea for winter – what would you do in summer?” “Cold pies” replied Tom, after reflection.

“I think you’ve got a dark underside to you” – Natasha to Jim in the boardroom.

“Jim, if there was a prize for talking, you’d win it” – Lord Sugar gets a word in edgeways.

So, Natasha’s gone. It’s Tom, Jim, Susie and Helen in the final. Who gets your vote?
