As much as I like Sarah, you go to any school fayre these days and mums working from home are selling plastic cups filled with sweets. Look in any FB group you'll see it too.    Certainly not unique, she's done well to build a business turning over £400k pa doing it.  As for not having a website that works, an off the shelf solution would cost about £25-30 per month and she could be up and running in an hour.

Wouldn't putting that you are a member of an official body on your site when you're not be fraud?  I would have expected that they could even bar him from joining ever again.  Money talks though, I expect it will easily be forgotten.

I almost thought nobody has mentioned it and could not believe it.  Sarah is selling sweets online and her website doesnt even work!! That has to be incredibly amateur, selling online these days is so important its just beyond stupid to not have at least a simple website that works.

Shocked Michaela went, yes she has other businesses but none of them turn over any more than 3m and she would expect this one to be turning over tens of millions so obv she is gonna give more attention to the bigger one surely?

Wish I didn't have Ross, why oh why do I have Ross Sad

Well, you can stop gnashing your teeth now.

The only surprise in this episode (disappointing, overall, IMO) was that he let the other two incompetents go back to the house. I also get the impression that there's more action in the house than there is on the tasks.

The wife told me that she read somewhere when the series started that several of the candidates are sleeping together in the house and its supposedly causing a lot of the tension.

The task was really limited, they had to go with the caterer no matter what and couldnt negotiate the price and there were limited options from them.
They had to go with the overpriced booze from the supplier
Limited entertainment options, not much room to negotiate (£750 for a 30 min crap magic show!!! wowzers!!!!!!)
Then the client is telling them they want 3 hot courses, champagne reception and free booze for the duration for a max £2.5k and they kinda have to take it because there isnt any other clients to pitch to.

Being able to restock the bar mid-task seems to defeat the purpose of ordering in advance and eliminates the sweat of running out.  Since that was an option its pretty incredible that they wouldnt just order the absolute minimum and reload as they need it

Im pretty shocked the PM didnt get fired, she was responsible for all of the biggest fuck ups and got off fairly lightly in the boardroom.

I think the other thing as well is you have some good people in there for sure, but at the start its always a certain type of person who sticks out - those loud, over confident ones who think themselves business gods superior to all others with actually no real talent or results to back it up... Even the good ones got caught up in their nonsense!  Sarah Jayne might be ok, if she was in an actual team she was actually the leader of she'd maybe have done a good sub-team job, however she had Elizabeth with her who was in a mood because she wasn't made sub team leader and just ignored her and went off donking about, Sarah got made to look pretty shit in last nights episode.

The first week's task could not be more straightforward, Dave.

1. Ascertain best footfall.
2. Decide cost per unit.
3. Decide desired margin / cost of production.
4. Get a wiggle on making them.
5. Be present and sell hard for lunch rush.
6. Sell excess to trade.

Agree that this one is a bit fiddly mind.

True - the girls did a pretty decent job, only thing that let Sarah L down was that her sub team went opposing instructions and bought cheap meat so the burgers were pretty rubbish. The boys faffed about for far too long because no-one listened to anyone and Charles wanted to show the world how clever he was.

Also, as simple as that sounds in your list (and i'm sure you're right) I think its actually quite a bit tougher than that, under the time pressure. I've been involved in successful food pop up projects and the planning takes months, working with people I know.

All those incredible business minds and not one of them pointed out that they should probably try to sell some burgers during lunch hours.....doesnt seem that hard imo

These people don’t seem very smart

Without any knowledge of what theyre actually working on Id be shocked if the police were truely at a stage where they are inches away from solving the case that they need funds for 6 months to get it done.  From the sounds of it, it seems pretty desperate, like theyve still got some avenues of enquiry but nothing concrete.  If they were so close to solving it then surely they would make a statement to that effect to raise public interest.

Agree with the point made earlier too, after this long Id just be shocked if she is still alive.  Especially with the big campaign to find her, the culprit would have to be so confident that they didnt leave any evidence to keep her alive and not dispose of the body.

Obv left it until the last week and dont live close enough for the live sats.  Usually DTD got sats galore in the run up so assumed it would be the same.

surprised at no nightly online sats.  Just logged in looking at how to sat in online this week and see that I cant.

McGregor will be 20lbs heavier than Floyd when it comes to the fight. Might be the biggest guy Floyd has ever fought.

This is a bigger weight difference than when McGregor fought Diaz the first time.

I think all the criticism is ridiculous. In early seasons everyone took half a season to do anything and everyone complained it was moving too slow. They're condensing things to fit more in as we get to the end and now everyone is complaining it's going too fast. They might've went a little fast on the last 2 eps but I don't think it's as bad as everyone is complaining about and the whole season has been fantastic

Cant imagine it being fixed.  I think Mayweathers undefeated legacy means more to him than the money from a rematch so he will never take a dive and theres no money in a rematch if McGregor loses
