Huh. That's weird.
Normally, it's very easy to burble on about the hate-inducing business slime that puts itself forward to be Sir Alan Sugar's newest puppet in The Apprentice. Well, that's how they appear at first - by the end of the series, you get to quite like some of them.
This year seems different somehow. Okay, there was the requisite bigging-up by everyone at the producers' request at the start, with the usual "there's no joy in taking part, just winning" spiel being spewed out by all and sundry as though they'd had a 100cc injection of pure evil into their veins.
But if you overlooked all that, there was no one truly objectionable. Everyone seems a bit dull. I kind of liked American woman, even if she did seem to say the bleeding obvious a lot; trainee stockbroker was a little annoying; Mona moaned a lot; Phil the geordie seems to be stuck on 'negative' the whole time.
Where's the hate, I ask you?
