The Apprentice - I'm Shocked and Stunned!

The Apprentice 

After 12 weeks Sir Alan finally made up his mind.

Rather than polishing a tried and true older apprentice he went for the one who claimed he would be malleable because he was "not fully formed."

So Simon Ambrose becomes the third apprentice and Kristina Grimes grits her teeth, gets her hair done and smiles during the "You've Been Hired" programme.

Interestingly Katie Hopkins was in the audience at "You've Been Hired"  and Sir Alan suggested that she hadn't needed to resort to the tactics she did. If she'd wanted to get the job with Sir Alan I'd agree.

Anyway, the point is that Simon who has not demonstrated very much ability at anything except break dancing and, according to Tre, having a photographic memory gets the job.

Well done Sir Alan for popping Simon's belief that he's a good leader - no, I think not. Maybe in time, we'll see.

In the meantime I've got 38 weeks until the next Apprentice. So I'm looking forward to Tycoon on ITV with Peter Jones starting on the 19th June.

Yes but Kristina's the real winner, now she can start her own succcessful busines - making at least as much - but without having a boss to answer to.

Hi John,

Yes I agree, rather like Ruth Badger in Series 2 who went on to bigger and better things - unlike Michelle Dewberry who didn't...
