The Apprentice Series 9 Episode 7

This was not a good episode, the only thing of note was the elimination of two floaters and Jason doing well in a challenge!

Yes this episode saw the elimination of Kurt and Natalie, both were inevitably going to be fired since they were seeing a downward spiral though I did like both of them. Kurt was doomed from the start, there was too much on the line for him and when he didn't sell it was obvious he was gone. Natalie was unlucky to be brought back in a double elimination because there was no room for her to stay. Myles should count himself lucky.

Back to my point of this episode not being good, it basically gave us nothing new. The ones focused on continued to be and the ones neglected were yet again unseen.

Alex - He is still a safe bet for the Final 4, I think his passion, age and "track record" will have been noted by Lord Sugar and since he hasn't made a fatal mistake he is a contender.

Francesca - I continue to feel confused about Francesca. She is the remaining floater but Lord Sugar has saved her time and again so I wonder what she has up her sleeve (or more specifically in her business plan).

Jason - The good editing means he'll survive at least another episode - ugh. Even Lord Sugar finds him a joke so why is he still in the process - it is beyond me, but he has to leave soon and it's at the point where there's little room for him to hide.

Jordan - Yet again continuing his downward spiral, these past few weeks he hasn't done anything of note so Jordan better watch out.

Leah - Unlike Jordan her downward spiral stopped in this episode. She was edited almost like the saviour to Kurt's team. She wasn't the wrecking ball she has been in the last few episodes and I think that means we'll see a more competitive Leah in the next few episodes.

Luisa - She continues to be steady, selling well in her team. I would love to see her in the interview stages because it'll be great TV I think.

Myles - He is the enigma, I'm confused as to what the editors want to do with him and why he has managed to come out unscathed so many times. The way he is edited is just odd.

Neil - The one edited as the favourite right now. I can't imagine Neil not making the Top 4 with Karen's strong support of him and his general success in the last few weeks. If I had to bet on a winner right now it would be him but it's still too early to tell.

The ones that will make it far: Neil, Alex, Leah

The ones to look out for: Luisa

The ones on the fence: Jordan

The ones in the middle: Francesca, Myles

The ones in the firing line: Jason (not immediately but he has to go soon!)
