Hope­fuls’ room for im­prove­ment

Irish Daily Mirror - - NEWS - IANHYLAND

WEEK two of The Ap­pren­tice fea­tured one of the most straight­for­ward chal­lenges the show has ever set. The con­tes­tants sim­ply had to re­design a five-star ho­tel room to Alan Sugar’s sat­is­fac­tion. That’s easy. A Spurs du­vet cover, a mu­ral made up of (very) old news clip­pings of The Ap­pren­tice pulling in 10 mil­lion view­ers and some toi­let pa­per with Piers Mor­gan’s face on it. But his 17 hope­fuls had other ideas – which was un­for­tu­nate for them. But th­ese ideas were com­edy gold, in­clud­ing one mem­o­rable ex­change which summed up ev­ery­thing that is good and bad about This Process. “Guys, stop shout­ing.” “We’re not shout­ing. We’re just all talk­ing at the same time.” In the end, the girls’ main tac­tic – “We’ve got to hope the boys messed up” – was enough to en­sure vic­tory. That came af­ter Sugar, be­low, was forced to de­cide which was best: a room that would make him feel like he had “wo­ken up in bub­ble wrap” or one that made him feel like he had “wo­ken up in a tri­fle”. Aw, man. That re­ally made me wish Harry Hill would bring TV Burp back. PS. I was con­fused by the girls’ treat. How was Gerald Scarfe meant to draw car­i­ca­tures of a bunch of liv­ing, breath­ing car­i­ca­tures?
