Couldn't agree more. I think he's an utter cock who clearly gets off on having 12 wannabes falling over themselves to kiss his ass. Truly revolting the way they fawn around him.

Particularly like 1:20 onwards.
Got to agree with those who find this show cringe worthy.
I can't stand Sugar, I find him obnoxious and an out and out bully.
During my working life I was unfortunate to have to mix with all the stereotypes you see on that program including Sugar, and I'd rather eat shit than watch it as it brings back too many painful memories.
I would love to go on the show personally, not to win a chance of working for Sugar but just to be told 'you're fired'. It's questionable whether it would make the final cut but I know my reaction would be to pull this
out of my a*** and stick it on the table shouting "then call me a cab m*ther******".
Wow, I'm not usually so direct!
I love it (and so does Fifigrace, I know).
I actually LIKE Joanna - if she can just speak a bit quieter, I think she is a potential winner!
But I thought last night's was a piece of classic Sugar logic - 'You women all shout too much, so I'm going to fire the one woman who didn't take part in the shouting match, for not pulling her weight'.
Incidentally, did anyone else think Joy looked anything but joyful? She has one of the saddest faces I have ever seen! (That's not meant insultingly, BTW. OK, her nose is a bit funny, but apart from that she could almost model for a sorrowful Madonna, or something).
My husband has actually met Sugar, and almost vomits every time he is on.
I'm not sure if I'd like to work for Lord S.
I have never worked in sales department but I think the whole process is too simplicistic - those who sell more win, etc. As it would only sale, sale and sale matter.... Obviously companies need to sale but you can sale less today to be able to sell more tomorrow.
And Teams results are rather pathetic - £200 or so for 8 people in 2 days?
Anyway, I just can't stand youngsters (not that I am aginst younsters in general) aged 22 (last episode girl so-called Project Manager) boasting: I have worked hard all my life. WTF?
And as a professional Project Manager, the show can't do any worse job to the image of profession - contenders are Team Leaders but calling them Project Managers is way too much for what they are doing there.
And is it really £100k the high top dog salary they are aspiring for? According to UK PAYE calculator, it is £65k after tax, £5400 per month. I know it is still quite good, but don't think worth to be named the biggest arse (who usually wins, as the guy who lied about his university, but made good dinosaur's sound...) in the show. Or maybe the show is designed for such lows? Think they (producers) still allow them to bend the truth - for instance 27y.o. EX-surgeon (joke? you can't be surgeon at that age, let alone ex-one). Or 22y.o. Business Development Manager - well, the most probably she will just do cold-calls.
And can anyone be fired without being hired?
Thats one of the best things I've watched lol

Indeed it should. I'm sure I'm not the only one who now has to stop and think "Just how IS that spelt" when writing something more "official"?

The bitch fight was disgraceful this week but don't really follow why Joyless Joy was killed off.
I have set up a betable bet here
and it took a bloody long time sorting out the pictures and stuff,
betable seems a pretty good resource for stuff like this, a fun platform which its easy to make a bit of cash on, with loads of people settling bets well after the event.
There is a no loss tenner for referrers I think, I know a couple of here will be able to refer anyone who wants to get involved.
Would be nice to get a bit of a TGT community on there for the fun bets and such!
As for this weeks bitch fest, in the words of Raleigh it was 'Shameful',
That Liz is hot too, can see sugar keeping her in!
