I feel a bit sorry for James there - the definitive beaten man

Interesting that Sir Allan did what none of his four interviewers did - he rattled Kate.

Lorraine on 'You're Fired' doesn't match up to the 'My life is Ruined' stories I'm delighted to say. I wonder who made the money on all that!

I did not expect to see Kate in the final two, although I am glad that she is there.  I thought Debra was a certainty, as well as Yasmina, who I thought would win it.  Now that Kate is there, I do wonder whether Kate will have the edge, as Sir Alan does seem a bit pre occupied with the fact that Yasmina may only stay working for his company (if she won) for a limited time, and then want to return to working for herself.

Having said that, isn't that most of the Apprentices, both here and in the USA went on to do anyway, either with the backing of Donald Trump or Sir Alan?
 
I think that Yasmina may just have the edge, because she is like Debra but with a bit more finesse, but I would like Kate to win.
 
NB/  Lorraine did seem ok, but there were two things I noticed.  1/ when asked if she was OK now, Lorraine light heartedly replied, "I will tell you in a few weeks" or something like that, before quickly saying yes she was fine etc., and 2/ I noticed that she had in fact lost a lot of weight, and I do wonder if that was part of the planned makeover, or was it because at one point she was indeed stressed.  Wish her all the best, and hope that her self esteem has improved since her appearance on the show.

I fully expected it to be Kate and Debra in the final two, very surprised to see Yasmina there.

Hard one to call - could be either of them. Suralan does like a bit of personality up to a point, which Kate and her fixed smile seems to hide too often.

Yasmina doesn't exude personality bless her.

Debra, like Claire last year, was frankly unemployable at a serious level as she presented herself. Not to say either couldn't progress with time but Amstrad isn't a kindergarten so far as I am aware

okay so for 'personality', read 'passion'. which Debra had in spades. and which siralan always gets drawn to, when ti means that someone can be a success, not justa cocky sh1t.

It was who I expected in the final, Debra has a lot of learning to do before she can hop straight into the kind of job that was being offered. James, as nice as he is, you just cant quite take him seriously which would never work in the business environment. Loraine, well, think she needs to be setting her aim lower on the job ladder to be frank.

Kate is ept at what she does, but I dont see drive or spark in her. Yasmina certianly has drive, but is a bit of a bull in a china shop
