Apprentice Week 2
Along with the majority of the population I tuned in to TV3 to watch the Apprentice last night and the show as always didn’t disappoint! Last night saw Unislim and Today FM come together to set this week’s task for the candidates. The objective of the task was to create a menu using the Unislim guidelines and then create a radio ad on Today FM to market the Unislim plan. I thought the task itself wasn’t too difficult and with a little bit of planning the teams should do very well in it. I couldn’t have been more wrong!
Although the girl’s team did win the task it was definitely a case of the lesser of the two evils as neither team really deserved to win. What let the girls down was their menu as it was not innovative enough and was not presented well. However, they did have a very strong ad for the radio and chose ideal time slots to promote Unislim. It was exactly the opposite for the boys as they chose the wrong time slots but there menu wasn’t strong enough to swing the votes in their favour and they ultimately lost the task.
The project manager on this task, David O’Byrne, took Will McCreevey and Jamie Moran back into the boardroom with him and of those three I believe Bill made the right decision. David was a weak project manager and deserved to be fired following his performance on the task.
I’ll be reviewing the tasks and the candidates’ performance on them every Tuesday from now on so make sure to keep an eye out for my blog!
