Jade's gone up in my estimation. She was definitely the creative thinker and force behind the team.
Definitely. I'd completely dismissed her after the reinvesting task but the last two weeks she's made a pretty impressive contribution I think.
I think Nick deserved his criticism for being 'too nice'. In fact, I think they were pretty lenient. I thought Nick was a numbers guy who understood profit margins and yet he let the entire pricing issue slide, probably knowing that Adam would take the wrap for that as PM. I mean, in a team of three people he can't make his voice heard? That's kinda lame on his part. I thought he had the same skills as Tom & Ricky in attention to detail.
Oh don't get me wrong, I think it was warranted in this instance, on this task, because I agree with your criticisms. But to go on like it's some fatal flaw as they have the last week and that he deserved to be fired on his first time in the final boardroom over it is just baiting the cameras.
Though I suppose that's the point.
I always knew he'd get involved with her business eventually; he actually seemed very proud of her last year even though she didn't win.
As I recall Hewer was a big fan as well. She would've been a more deserving winner than Tom, certainly.
I can't see Ricky getting it without a seriously good business plan. I think it's up in the air between Tom, Nick and Jade. Brady is a big backer of Jade (always an assett) and I think the points about Tom's maturity are fairly valid. It's a surprisingly tight race actually.
I used to really love this show, but it feels this season like every task is basically the same. (Or probably it's always been that, but I'm just noticing.)
I don't think it's any different; though this is certainly the most boring cast they've had for a couple of years.
