How wonderful to see three women filling the top three places in this year’s Apprentice.
Not that I particularly warmed to the two have made it into the final.
Luisa does seem to have mended her ways but her bullying of various candidates was quite shocking.
Leah is a little more retiring but also has a will of steal hidden behind that rather fluffy exterior.
Lord Sugar seems interested in the ideas behind both business plans, particularly Leah’s cosmetic surgery clinics as he could see that there is a bit of money to be made in that area. But also because there are some areas where it might be rather exciting. Having said that, I don’t think she does herself any favours with her own lips as an example. Her mouth just doesn’t look natural.
Can any man tell me whether they actually find that sort of thing attractive…? I just don’t get it.
A couple of weeks ago, I purchased a product from the new Tropic range by Susan Ma. She was a finalist in The Apprentice a couple of seasons ago. However, despite not being the eventual winner, Lord Sugar did invest in her and her business. It’s a skincare range that contains only natural products and these are listed in plain English for the people who use them – as well as satisfying the demands of the authorities who insist that the chemical names for these natural products must be obvious on any packaging.
Winning the process is not everything. And, judging by the legal issues Lord Sugar has had with some of the winners over the last few years, it would seem that the business plan is what should do more of the talking than the candidates themselves.
It will be interesting to watch how Tropic develops and also who actually wins this year’s investment.
