I watched both You're Fired
and Behind the Scenes
, and all I can say is that Eoin had better pray that Zest doesn't lose even once -- because his teammates will throw him under the bus in a heartbeat the first time Zest hits the Boardroom, and after seeing how annoying he is, I can't say I blame them. He can't read a room to save his life, he can't keep his mouth shut for more than five seconds, and he obviously has no idea how much everyone else starts making with the eyerolls as soon as his back is turned. They can't stand him, and they'll easily look for any way that they can to get rid of him, short of throwing a task to do so.
I really want to like Chris (as I said, he's gay, according to his bio on the official website, and I feel honor bound to support one of my own), but he really needs an ego check, in my opinion. There's something just a bit on the douchey side about him that I can't quite put my finger on, and he'd better pray that he doesn't end up in the Boardroom again next week, or he's out for sure -- if he's watched even one series of this show, he's going to know that Bill has zero tolerance for repeat Boardroom offenders, and Chris already has two strikes against him in that regard.
And right you are about Anton Savage. He is so wooden that he makes You're Fired
almost a snooze-fest for me. The show isn't nearly as funny as its UK counterpart is, and I think it's in large measure because Anton doesn't have Dara's dry sense of humor or comedic timing. I can only hope that Anton gets better with time.
