      Kimberly & Paula are both exploiting the big flaw in the show. In the early stages if you do nothing you can't make a mistake & won't upset anyone. Eventually they'll be found out - I hope!

      Ben says he is the best looking, ... as he looked in a mirror lately, he reminds us of hammy the hamster... a rodent with rodent ways, sly and devious, Sir Alans got his cards marked.

      Ben and James need to be fired as soon as possible. Ben just boasts too much and so far hasn't really shown any business knowledge. James is just rubbish. Majid shouldn't have got fired as he wasn't making any mistakes, just following instructions.

      The Competitive quote of the week above is slightly wrong.
      What Ben said was;
      "Whoever's up against me - their a**holes are going to be twitching like rabbits' noses"
      He is nothing if not the master of a disgusting image !!

      These people are not getting through on business acumen. The're getting through on entertainment value. Ben is such a big headed thug, with his "I'm the best looking" and "I've got a scholarship to Sandhurst" brag. How can anybody who from the outset says "I'll take a back seat on this one guys" during a brainstorming session be any good. What a loser. But, we will all tune in to see what brain dead things he has to say next!
