The Apprentice Series 9 Episode 6

This episode really hit the nail in the head, we are very much seeing a turning point with many of the candidates, some in which I do not like. Rebecca was the one fired, they billed her as a potential candidate in the early episodes but ultimately forgot about her, once she was brought back into the boardroom I knew her demise was imminent despite the general consensus being that Francesca should have gone.

Alex - He continues to be present but doing neither right or wrong, he is being given a very similar edit to Ricky from last series so I can't imagine him going before the Final 4/5 as of now.

Francesca - She has been saved yet again which speaks tremendously for what might be saving her, her business plan. I feel like she is skating on thin ice but then there's a reason why she has been saved again.

Jason - Just get out please.

Jordan - He really needs to start making a name for himself besides being the disrespectful one in boardrooms. If he is to make any leeway in the next few weeks he needs to make an impact on the tasks.

Kurt - He has been saved for his drive and passion for his business plan but if he doesn't show any other evident strengths I fear he will get the boot soon. What exactly was his role this episode? He is one of the weaker guys right now.

Leah - This was the Leah show today and continues to be a mark on her, recent, perfect score. She is being broken down as the perfect candidate and with direct praise from Karen to Neil, in a task she PM'ed, I think Leah has become somewhat a dark horse now. Last episode was the turning point and this episode was the start of the fall, if she wants to stay in Top 4 contention she needs to change this immediately.

Luisa - Her outburst made her a target but if she stays consistent I think she'll still be in contention of a Top 4 berth. She shows that she has the ability but she needs to desperately hone that into something manageable and useful.

Myles - Myles has yet to lose a task but I wonder if he's becoming forgettable for Lord Sugar but then he was also part of the double act with Neil, even though Neil stole the show. I wonder if he is actually the silent killer or just a - "you are too quiet, you're fired" candidate because the week he PM'ed was not a good week either.

Natalie - She desperately needs more screentime of her being productive, at this stage of the process if you're not being shown in an episode that's a problem, you are either being sidelined or you are waiting for a redemption and right now Natalie seems like she'll be an easy target.

This episode has changed my view on the "favourites" so to speak

The ones that will make it far: Neil, Alex

The ones to look out for: Jordan, Leah, Luisa

The ones on the fence: Myles

The ones in the middle: Natalie, Kurt, Francesca

The ones in the firing line: Jason

I really don't have any favourites right now, it's quite a travesty but I do seem to like Natalie for some odd reason.
