    I like her - mainly because she hasn't used ridiculous words to try to make herself seem more than she is.

    Perhaps discussing the looks of the applicants isn't the best use of the comments boards... it's results that count in Sir Alan's book. Do you think Katy will deliver?

    "Regrets not applying to Oxbridge". And why was that? Were you simply going to breeze in there like you do everywhere else? It's a thin line between confidence and arrogance. This lot seem to have the latter in abundance. 'The Apprentice'; great innit!?

    I don't really think that people are able to tell how well the candidates will get on at this stage. A photoshoot and a bit of hyperbole are not really enough.

    All we have to go on is preconceived ideas and the cynicism of watching to much tv.

    Anyway it's fun to have those ideas shown to be nonsense, when the characters turn out to e human after all.

    The only people who know who are going to do well are the family and friends of the successful candidates surely ? I thought that this was shot months ago.

    I wonder, does she use the tarot cards or a crystal ball to foretell her prospects? I think that she will go far if she is as sincere as she makes out.
