The Apprentice
 
New series starts tonight though it clashes with 24 which is a bit of a pain in the arse.
There's a brit on this one. I shall spare you all my own opinion of his profile and let you all judge for yourselves...

Apparently he came to the US on an EB1 visa for "persons of extraordinary ability" - is this description of the visa correct and how does one get one - are they hard to obtain ???

I'm glad someone said that before me.
So what's the crack with that visa then - not wanting to sound like a snob here but I shouldn't imagine that Southampton Solent Uni attracts too many people of "extraordinary ability".

Also the show this series is full of lawyers, realators and recruitment consultants - the dregs of humanity if ever i saw it.

Thanks for posting this, i wont bother watching it now! Bloke looks a bit of a tit. I will say i would love to find out the requirements for obtaining that visa though. One man band? tapdancing-juggling act? Does that get you through?

As far as I'm aware no-one has been battered to death with a dildo in the apprentice yet, though to be fair quite a few of them deserve it

For your own personal protection i suggest that you delete that post asap ;)

All I can say about you is that you must be a bad lawyer, as you seem like a nice person :)

Oh joy.

I can't stand Donald Trump - the rampant egotism, the ridiculous hair, the pouty facial expression he puts on in that dimly lit boardroom, and (at least this is how he sounds to me) the way that he speaks all his lines as if he thinks the microphone is 20 feet away.

Generally most of the contestants are only fractionally less irritating.

Yes, though due to 24 I didn't see much else of the apprentice.
The word spiv comes to mind, but fair play to the bloke - he seems to have done well for himself.

Is anyone else still watching the show??

Shane the Brit has made it to the final 2, though he's still a wanker. He's more interested in making a move on one of the girls than getting the job done on the final task. :rolleyes: The live finale is next Monday. Don't know why I've stuck it out for so long, but it's been fun hearing him call the others wankers without it being censored. :D

I sometimes watch it. I did last week. Probably record it tonight 'cos I'm watching the 2nd part of a 2 part thriller/mystery on BBC America. I think that most of the 'reality' shows are well past their sell by date now, can't even be bothered to remember the names of the contestants.

I was actually cringing for him last night, leave the girl alone :eek:
