Well, they didn't disappoint. Episode 1 saw them trying to launch a cruise line with zero resources or experience.

Ladies went with "Bouji Cruises", which seems to be a mash up of bijou and boutique and resembled a floating hen party run by Sex & the City cosplayers. Gents went with - I'm not sure, but they had a logo that looked like a shit.

As ever, it was brought to you by Dunning and Kruger. "I read a thing about colour psychology", "Steven Spielberg doesn't have actors talking back to him", and other gems littered the episode.

What hit me though, as a (former) project manager, was the utter cluelessness of the team captains. Yes, I get that it's a competitive show and that as well as trying to win each task everyone is looking for a chance to shaft or stitch up their colleagues. But if you have a team of 8, including one with a background in marketing and another with experience in graphics (the two key threads in this week's task), you don't make one of them the overall project leader. You give them a sub-team, and have as PM someone whose main skill is communication and co-ordination.

For those of us who enjoy laughing at idiots, it's shaping up just fine. My money's on either exasperated but genuinely trying his best Hakim, or "I cannot believe I'm in a room with these cretins" Harpreet.

You have to remember that "sugar" is a widely accepted alternative to a different word which is considered to be rather naughty. As in "Oh sugar! I've just spilled tea all over my keyboard".


Question:. Was "sugar" used in this context before Amstrad products hit the shelves?

Last night, design a toothbrush. Not just any old toothbrush, an all signing, all dancing one with an app! You know, for kids!

The ladies win again, by basically ignoring team leader's instructions and turning out to be really good at pitching and selling. Positive, upbeat, open to ideas. Bit concerned at the sidelining of the one team member with expertise on dealing with kids (Shama). She made several asides to the camera distancing herself from any potential fuck up.

The guys, following last week's turd debacle, designed a toothbrush that looked like a turd. And named after a bad smell. I'm beginning to suspect that they might be subtly taking the piss out of the entire process, and then they spoil it all by opening their mouths and confirming that they are that wanky. They go to sell it, and deliver a pitch that amounts to "Yeah, we know it's shit but what can you do?". Actually no, I'm even more convinced that this is some top level satire.

In the end, Sweetex had the choice of firing the useless team leader, the useless posh plank, or the ginger. So he went with the ginger.

Week 3 and 10 left, after Shama walked (as Tom Allen put it later, she never lost a task, never got hauled back in, and left with her head held high; therefore winner). This week it was non-alcoholic drinks. Not too bad, although posh boy who bleated on about having a vision was sadly not fired. Instead it was Guillermo from What We Do in the Shadows (aka Navid) who got booted for not doing anything. Although he was stitched up in the boardroom, and pointed out that the only skill on the show that matters is selling, as that's all the tasks are judged on. OK, you need a clear to understand metric, but it's a good point. Meanwhile Amy (the Yank who thinks she's creative) is rapidly becoming this year's most deluded fool, at least around these parts.
