TBF Kurran as PM is going to be must-watch telly! Rick has been singularly useless in every task so not too much a surprise he's gone.

Hopefully Kurran will go next week, he's fucking useless. Even worse than the Doctor Who lookalike.

I think that was the first episode I actually heard him pointing out a couple of things that were right.

I like to see him "act". Seriously, I like to see if he has any talent

The only good thing about that episode were those delicious hips in that green dress....

I'm surprised they didn't go one step further and re-enact a plane crash in their advert. With someone dressed as the Grim Reaper welcoming them aboard.

I think Kurran has survived worse failures, but my partner mentioned that the way he acts is just a mass of red flags indicating his attitude to women. He didn't seem capable of dealing with Khadija, and he certainly came off as condescending throughout. I will say that he has an ego that's thoroughly unwarranted; did he do anything useful across the entire competition?

Using "Highway to Hell" for a transport company didn't hit me as idiotic until the BA exec mentioned it, at which point I burst into laughter.

See, I think that worked in as much as they started off by showing a bad (hellish) flight experience. Maybe where they went wrong was not using a contrasting soundtrack for the second half of the ad, although that may just have sounded shit.

And agreed on Kurran, all through that boardroom segment I sat here thinking 'this guy does not respect women, at all', and if it's obvious to me as a man then god knows what it was like for the women on his teams. Although the reaction at the end from the girls when they saw he didn't go back to the house perhaps speaks volumes there.

Overall though thought it was a very entertaining episode, glad he finally got his comeuppance.

And Pangea was a fucking shit name for an airline, as poor as their final choice was.

watched it last night. From what was delivered I conclude that these bunch of morons must be the worst on record. Delivering a marketing campaign in less than 24 hours is next to impossible as intensive market research needs to be done to find out what works best but come on for fuck sake, teenagers can do better than this.

An airline with the word "pop", a corporate logo that has an explosion looking graphic on it, the song "highway to hell" and a air stewardess outfit that is wholly impractical in times of emergencies.

Is this just one big piss take on us now ?

It makes you wonder what happens behind the cameras. Do the film crew ask them to do stupid things? "It'll make great tv".
The contestants can't be that unprofessional surely?

PLus, like you say, this sort of thing would take months to put together by people who do this day in day out. Not noobs in 24 hours.
BUt then that's par for the course for pretty much every challenge they face.

Make a ton of cakes and sell it. I don't know how to cook to start with. Surely the process would be best served by showing how they can contract the best people for the best price to make the things they need then sell them?

I'd like to see an episode where they give each team £100 and they can do whatever they want with it, and whichever team comes back with the most money at the end of the day wins. No rules at all. They could head down to Ladbrooks if they wanted.

You're Fired was quite revealing. Did anyone else see it?

Kurran basically admitted he'd been arsing about and knew he didn't have a hope of winning it. Then when asked what his business plan was, he said he didn't have one ("I had a plan, but it wasn't a business"). Sounds to me like he just wanted the exposure to try and launch an acting or celebrity career, which is where he said his interest was all along.

I guess he was put on the show purely for entertainment reasons.
