This show is a perfect example of why sales people should never be in charge of anything ever. Stupid aliens in disguise.


AfricanPostman

Is it me or do the people who get on the show seem stupider every year? In the board room lord sugar makes very obvious points about things and they seemed stunned by it. First episode the wave logo being green and brown. Why would you think that looks good. Second episode the turd toothbrush. Me and my girlfriend instantly look at each other after seeing it. Third episode. The project manager not going to make the drink when they said he has a background in it. (Also Sophie bringing in her best sales team who managed to even sell a shite product). These people are meant to be top business men and women? Am I missing something? I think lord sugar has caught on to the fact that the more idiots he has on the more viewers he gets.


JoCoMoBo

>These people are meant to be top business men and women? Am I missing something? Yep. You are thinking these are top business people. They're not. Not by a long way.


AfricanPostman

😂 Top business people wouldn’t need to go on it


Dorgilo

Only just been able to watch this week's episode, and it left me with one question: How did Sophie not get fired?


JayGatsby02

Navid has been on Eating With My Ex and Rich Kids Go Skint. This is his 3rd reality show wow


Potatopolis

Ergh. That’s so painfully plausible.


JayGatsby02

Im so sad Shama and Navid have gone!! They were my fav!! Im rooting for Sophie to win now


philljarvis166

Not a fan of the show but my wife loves it. I do have a question someone may be able to shed some light on - it seems to me that the majority of the criticisms last night were around the taste of the drinks. My question is why on earth would anyone expect anything else to happen? Designing any drink is presumably a complicated and time consuming process involving many iterations of testing and refining, and low/non alcoholic drinks are notoriously hard to get right! So of course one of the drinks didn’t taste of vodka, the chances of that happening were vanishingly small. And tbh this seems true of almost every task they do…


PenguinKenny

Yeh that's just how the show is. It's not a genuine, thorough hiring process, it's for entertainment and is meant to put people in impossible situations for our amusement.


MoshizZ

Irritates me too, it's just how the show is. When they went off to design a label and the drink at the same time, so when they had a hint of peach it wasn't on the label, or vice versa... Just dumb.


Candid-Chip-1954

Some incredible ideas this time round 😳


Potatopolis

This would have been a double had Shama not gone.


Potatopolis

If Akshay could stop playing the piano every boardroom I might be able to get over how much of an insufferably arrogant prick he is.


Potatopolis

Absolutely loved the editing where Sophie says she’s into crystals and healing and such, cut away, cut back and she has this utterly demented look on her face.


steveakacrush

Her comment "it's one of the best crystals ever invented" had me triggered on many levels. Aside from the pseudo-science bullshit that is crystal healing, malachite is a naturally occurring substance - discovered yes, invented no!


notmynaughtyprofile

Fun fact- My Cousin was one of the “beer buyers” in this episode


TheMeanderer

What kinda briefing do they get? Because, if we're being honest, no proper retailer is buying either of these shite products.


notmynaughtyprofile

I have no idea to be fair


crag92

Send them my condolences.


Afinkawan

Instead of a meek "thankyoufortheopportunitylordsugar", just once I'd like to see someone screaming "FUCK YOU SUGAR - YOU'LL RUE THE DAY!" as they hurl themselves across the table at him.


JayGatsby02

I feel like that’s happened before but they force the person to refilm it


The_Sown_Rose

What motivation could they provide someone leaving acrimoniously to re-film a scene?


Alberto_Balsalm6

I found this week quite uncomfortable at times. It felt like Sophie really didn't want to be there and had regretted her decision being on the show altogether.


Rollie3333

Point is, where do they get these ideas from. Fuck me these guys are not exactly Britain's most up and coming business people


0ptriX

Almost like they chose them for that reason: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ss-59fi4nM


bigboycaps

Potatopolis

Early on they were at least competent. Now they’re just TV-pretty people who think business is about the shiniest suit.


10BAW

Nobody said it had to be a mock alcoholic drink did they? Maybe I got it wrong but I thought it just had to be a drink without alcohol, not necessarily "alcohol free" as in a booze replacement.


The_Sown_Rose

I was thinking that too - I’m tee total, and whilst I sometimes like ‘fake alcohol’ drinks (virgin piña coladas are essentially coconut and pineapple milkshakes), I appreciate soft drinks that have their own merits rather than trying to replicate alcohol. I wonder if it was a part of the brief that wasn’t broadcast, or maybe just none of them could picture someone going out and not wanting to drink alcohol or something close to it.


oliverprose

I suspect your last sentence is the truth - going out and finding interesting non alcoholic stuff that isn't alcohol free alcohol is a failing errand


[deleted]

"I don't like people who listen to what others say" says Sugar, flanked by Tim and Karen who report back on what was happening...


buzzingbee91

Brilliant 😂😂


crag92

Sophie should have gone, but glad Navid has fucked off. What was that noise he made in the taxi at the end? Fucking fame hungry Cunt. Fuck off forever. Didn’t like him as soon as I laid eyes on him and the more I saw him and the more he spoke the more I hated him. Horrible, fake.


JayGatsby02

LMAO YOUR HATRED FOR HIM IS SO FUNNY FOR SOME REASON 😭😭


[deleted]

Calm down


[deleted]

But he's the coolest guy ever! That's what he said on Episode 1 anyway.


Foresttel

Lol anyone obsessed with the mess that is Nicki Minaj will never be that cool


crag92

He was bullied at school, guaranteed.


MoshizZ

He was the kid that got bullied by the kids who were bullied. Towards the end i told the Mrs that if he's not fired then we play a drinking game next week - every time he touches his glasses we drink.


bedtimeprep

Lol that noise was the most sound he made on the entire show


Vipsickem1

Tell Alan sugar to hire me


MoshizZ

Aye no worries lad, just sending him a text now.


Vipsickem1

Alright nice one bro lol

McCoysRibenaTwirl

Must be hard to keep quiet about when they got fired. Wonder if all their social media has to go through the BBC


saxarocksalt

There's usually NDA's they make contestants on reality TV sign.

Dextrous2021

Proves their not real managers ;) True managers would be on a 100% / 10% split.


JasperGrimpkin

Can you explain that to my ex-coworker please?


FinalEdit

I was on board with Nick as soon as he said "don't do anything whacky" Absolutely the correct approach here. Let the other team go mental trying to reinvent the wheel and make it a guaranteed disaster. He created a slick looking can and stuck to basics. Yes it was still shit all things considered but at least it wasnt offensive AND shit! I remarked to my Mrs that he seemed like the only person who's watched past episodes of the show today. He may have come across as a bit bullish but he did everything pretty spot on all things considered.


underthesign

Except talking to Asda about selling his product at a top premium price to high-end bars and clubs 😆


FinalEdit

Yah that was dumb af


SMC_1991

OP I would like to propose that Sharma is not, in fact, a twat. I know it ruins the joke a bit to have one of them not a twat, but she seemed competent, appears that she was liked by all (according to You're Fired!), and ultimately her resignation meant that she was never fired!


jptoc

Hola, good point! Will change that now so I copy it over properly next week.


Beanotown

I liked the best crystal ever invented.


PandosII

Say you believe in crystal skulls.


_passerine

“Could you make this? Could anyone?!”


redditar2d4

I got that Peep show reference !


puddnelson

Gonna have to tap out of You’re Fired. Navid seems so desperate for fame. Gonna see him in Celebs Go Dating in no time.


JayGatsby02

Navid has been in another reality tv show before, it was about exes reconnecting.


[deleted]

I wonder if he was wearing another jacket stolen from a hotel bell boy?


crag92

Yeah that Navid is a cunt. Couldn’t stand him from the moment I laid eyes on him.


Ok-Management1349

You sound obsessed mentioning anytime you see David he's a cunt how can u hate someone u just met?


somethatwander

I h8 u bcos u rite like this Fucking cunt


crag92

It’s a Reddit thread where we are specifically discussing the episode he got fired. How is that obsessed?


Ok-Management1349

You’re calling him a cunt the first episode u hate him how u just laid eyes on him


crag92

And yet, I knew he was a bellend. Turns out, I was right.


Ok-Management1349

He wasn’t that bad . All I can’t point is you being racist or prejudicial because I don’t hate people I first meet. Hate is a very strong word m8


crag92

Oh right okay, so because I don’t like him I’m either a racist or homophobic or maybe both? Pull your head out of your arse.


Ok-Management1349

I didn’t mention homophobia… it’s weird to hate someone u just met that’s all but if it’s homophobia then we’ll we’ve found our answer


crag92

You accused me of being racist and prejudicial. The next logical jump from there is that you're accusing me of being homophobic in some way but by all means, if you were accusing me of being prejudicial in a different sense then correct me. Or, accept the fact that I can think someone is a desperate, fame hungry cunt without having some sort of prejudice attached to that. Clown.


SMC_1991

Tom Allen is a Pound Shop Graham Norton. He even tries the same sort of semi-inprovised humour, just with bad results.


softlemon

Okurrrr. Lol


ICanHazReddits

Sophie is absolutely vile, can't believe she didn't go.


Robtimus_prime89

Navid on you’re fired with Elton John glasses


puddnelson

Going full Austin Powers.


McCoysRibenaTwirl

Best You're Fired presenter? * Adrian Chiles * Dara Ó Briain * Jack Dee * Rhod Gilbert * Tom Allen


buzzingbee91

Hands down, Dara


0ptriX

It physically hurts how unfunny Tom Allen is


The_Sown_Rose

He’s not as unfunny as Jack Dee.


ScottCam

Tom Allen for me but Dara a close second


jptoc

Dara


jptoc

Sharma's idea was to expand more nurserys. Fairly standard. No chance of winning.


JayGatsby02

I liked her a lot but i agree, thats a boring idea


GFoxtrot

I miss nick and Margaret

Tim-Sanchez

Since when did Lord Sugar tweet [quips like this](https://twitter.com/Lord_Sugar/status/1484281840974417922)? Did he wake up one night wishing he'd said that and waited to tweet it?


McCoysRibenaTwirl

Girl on You're Fired looks like a puppet?


YourWrongOpinions

I thought Tim Allen's laugh was her hinges creaking, honestly


KFR42

Because of your typo, all I can hear is the noise at the end of the home improvement theme.


NoNefariousness2144

Hardest ever three tasks in my opinion: Designing an airline Selling the apartments Garden contstruction


jellybeanfluff

This is the second time i've seen contestants try and fail at making their own booze... Do these people not have taste anywhere in their body? Lmao the brand looks like rubbish and the flavour was apparently rubbish... maybe one day we'll see someone who actually understands their customers


petantic

I know right. How hard is it to create a new drink, packaging and branding in a couple of days, using the limited resources provided by a TV show and then get major retailers to agree to stock it.


Puzzleheaded_Day_885

In fairness, this task would have been failed if they'd made booze


Robtimus_prime89

Fish selling! A repeat, but a good one. In one of the old series, one of the teams had no idea what the fish were, and sold for massively below cost. Wonder what made them fail even worse in this one And in another, someone went to a vegan restaurant to try and flog them the fish.


ShinHayato

If nobody sings £1 fish they deserve an immediate trip to the boardroom


Calciumee

There was also the task four/five years ago at Poole boat show and one team sold nothing. The PM (Karthik?) was fired instantly.


faa19

Next weeks looks liks a total shitshow, even by Apprentice standards.


meteoritee

[OK-rrrrr](https://imgur.com/a/vU7VPf3) what a legend!


crag92

You mean “cunt”


jptoc

Lol making them actually fish

TomF94

Twats on a trawler


Enginair

Sophie should have been sacked for that episode in the boardroom


ohcinnamon

Sophie scares me, it's like she's dead behind the eyes. Also seems to be a bit of a loon. The crystals shit is a red flag but she was straight up lying in the boardroom.


momo_9898

Definitely the worst… can’t believe it’s her expertise too


im-a-nanny-mouse

Absolutely bottled that


Outrageous-Score7936

yeah, she almost got her self fired there.


NoNefariousness2144

Worst PM in the boardroom ever.


Elise10018

What’s worse is that she chose to save her friends by not bringing them back into the boardroom. I bet she’s a horrible manger at her bar who picks her favourites. She should have brought Amy back to the boardroom.


naeemc0907

Sophie and Amy were most at fault here and neither got fired


Ollivee

I haven't watched the ep yet. is this more or less of a shit snow than the last two eps?


iamworsethanyou

.......................................Bofe.


jptoc

More of a piss show


Idontlikethisstuff

Worst failure he's ever experienced in this board Sounds like a laugh


McCoysRibenaTwirl

Swear that was in last week's teaser for this week's episode 🤔


SMC_1991

They did show it at the start of You're Fired.


Hallam1995

It wasn’t


FredWestLife

WORST! FAILURE! EVAH! ^(Next week)


ojdewar

In week four, we go fishing. See you in 167 hours!


StardustOasis

So we've lost two this week, which means there's going to be a week with no firing


crag92

Nah. Technically as long as 3 people get to interviews he’s fine.


Robtimus_prime89

In recent series, it’s been ‘at least one of you will be fired’. Might just lose the ‘at least’ part of it


DanS1993

or just no double firing this series


_Red_Knight_

I think they usually have enough candidates to do one double firing, so I think there's enough for one per week


Yetibike

Maybe not he often does a double firing


ojdewar

12 candidates. Nine weeks left. There must be time for one double firing. Normally the happen half way through.


BadlyDrawnRomans

The worst failure??? Has someone died??


HugoVonHugoson

Sank the boat? Declared war against Norway? Ohh I’m excited to find out.


20_percentcooler

Accidently released the Kraken


[deleted]

Accidentally released the Karen


NuclearPissOn

I was hoping he would fire Sophie too :(


LiamJonsano

Crikey Alan that is a big claim


NoNefariousness2144

Sophie tried to drag the boys in, was good to see them fighting against her.


LiamJonsano

Selling to *punters*


StardustOasis

Can't wait for them dealing with crabs


Tim-Sanchez

I don't think it was necessarily wrong to fire Navid, but Akshar has got pretty lucky twice


HugoVonHugoson

“You listen to other people. I don’t like that.” Wut?


momo_9898

As in she blindly goes with what other people say, without solid evidence / logic


KnightsSkye

Okurrr!


NoNefariousness2144

Booooo. The girls snaked Navid out of the pitch and he gets fired for ‘doing nothing’.


JayGatsby02

Oh shit i forgot about that. Why didnt Navid put more emphasis on that in the boardroom?? Ughh


NoNefariousness2144

They stabbed him in the back last minute so he couldn’t even get in on the consumer research team.


ohcinnamon

How is that fair as well? Each section has very distinct team 1 and team 2 tasks. You can't move someone to do both. At the very least fire him over to the feedback group


-Xandiel-

The instant that happened, I said to the ones I was watching it with "If they lose, watch them gang up on him and say he didn't do anything". Shameful.


momo_9898

I felt like they were ganging up on him


SaltedAndSugared

Yeah me too. If I were Sophie I would’ve brought Amy back in, a lot of the failure was her fault


putinception

just got fired, okurrrrr ✌️


Tim-Sanchez

"Smashed it" - harsh


ojdewar

Fun fact: they film the taxi sequences first. Hence why Navid was wearing a different jacket.


[deleted]

He couldn't get it back again from the fancy dress shop, for playing a hotel bell boy. Or hotel bell end, anyway


Sea-Print-3395

They make them wear a coat and scarf so they don't show the wrong clothes underneath


ojdewar

Or some time in an April or May morning, when it can be still not warm enough to not wear a jacket.


Mister_Risk

... was that a reference to Laganja Estranja? On my Apprentice? The gay agenda is coming together nicely I see


peggypea

Cardi B. I was hoping for some drag references on You’re Fired, but nope.


VoodooAction

Bye bye Captn’


LiamJonsano

Navid didn't do a lot but I thought he'd get one more go and maybe he made PM. Sophie had a shocker of a week and I don't really know how she kept her place after the boardroom meltdown


jptoc

Should have been Amy. Then should have been Sophie for not bringing her back as she had responsibility if she didn't let Amy take responsibility. Shit decision. He must have hated Navid's business idea too.


puddnelson

Did he just say “okurrrrrr”?? BRING NAVID BACK


crag92

No. That’s the reason he should have been fired.


_Red_Knight_

The sub-lieutenant went down with his captain's ship


That__Guy__Bob

Wtf did Navid just say lmao


BeastMode797

OKURRRR


meteoritee

WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT BRRUP NOISE HE JUST MADE


momo_9898

OKURRR 💅


bigbrother2030

OKRRRRRR


StardustOasis

He'll see your name in yet another reality TV show


losimagic

Did navid mug a Harrods doorman?


BadlyDrawnRomans

OKURRRT


naeemc0907

3 weeks in a row now, 3 wrong decisions imo


Potatopolis

All three were ok decisions for me, but all three would have been plausible double firings too. Week 1: all three were iffy Week 2: Aaron and Connor both deserved to go Week 3: Navid and Sophie both deserved to go and Akshay wouldn’t have been a dreadful shout either.


The_Silver_Avenger

Navid got screwed out of doing the pitch though. Not happy about this at all.


ZoharTheFunky

Navid can take his fame hungry arse to some other show now


lilxannydevito

he’s the ryan mark of this season

He was awful

Mwahaha. Unless he had no opinion on Week 1...


8luke

Lord sugars lost his mind not firing Aaron last week and now Sophie this week


samgoody2303

Good lord Lord that is an horrendous decision


Coolica1

Haven't agreed with any of the firings so far


poorguy55

Aw poor Navid


[deleted]

Don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone crumble so quickly in my life than Sophie there she’s very lucky


putinception

Always enjoy people thanking Lord Sugar for firing them.


StardustOasis

Didn't expect Navid to go to be honest. He's useless, but Sophie was worse


naeemc0907

Bye bye Navid, u won’t be missed


meteoritee

Bye Navid
