Live Blog: 'Junior Apprentice' Week Two

By
As Jordan De Courcy proved last week, 16-year-olds can be just as arrogant and cocksure as their seniors, as he came unstuck with Lord Alan Sugar in the boardroom. But who will be given the wagging finger of doom and those immortal words "you're fired!" this week? Reality Bites will be covering the second episode live, offering our usual no-nonsense views on all the candidates. Feel free to voice your opinions in the box below or drop us a tweet @dsrealitybites.

21:58: That was another cracking episode. Next week's task will include two teams designing and selling cupcakes. And it will also include Zoe dressed in a cupcake outfit. Well worth tuning in for. See you back here - same time, same place - next week!

21:54: Decision time for Lord Alan. And it's Hibah who gets the finger! She's not built for the cut-throat world of business, according to Lord Sugarshire. Nick Hewer claims "she lacked passion". Ultimately, it was Adam's gift of the gab that has kept him in the competition. Hibah is unlucky that the other person in the boardroom was Zoe and her beret. If it had been anyone else, she may have stayed.

21:52: This is a tough old decision for Sir Alan. The finger should really point at Adam. But he gives a good defence of himself in the boardroom and he's got a good story. "I've got the blisters on my hands to prove how hard I work," he says, looking close to tears.

21:51: Why didn't Adam develop a female-friendly festival cheese? Remember the old saying Adam, 'Woman love cheese'.

21:48: Adam has brought Hibah back... and Zoe. Wow, he may live to regret that. She's not going to take any prisoners. A minute ago she was singing his praises as a project manager, but I think she'll be more than happy to stick the knife in now.

21:46: Adam is stuttering and flapping around the boardroom. Zoe still has an air of confidence about her. Nick Hewer is gunning for Emma. He thinks that her idea for a cardboard product at a festival is a recipe for "soggy" mess.

21:43: Best tweet of the evening has come from @chris_allen. "Essentially that Store 'n 'Go is a dehydrated papier mâché system."

21:42: Note to Adam. It's always a bad idea to continue defending a product when you fail to sell one unit.

21:39: No surprises when it comes to the results. Hannah and the boys flog over 3,000 sledges and get this week's treat. Adam, Zoe, Hibah, Emma and Kirsty failed to flog one solitary Flex N Store. But what about the Snakes And Ladders?!

21:38: Sugar at Adam: "If I thought this show was easy I'd have it on CBeebies." The Lord has found a weak spot with the Flex N Store. He's going to nail them for it.

21:32: It doesn't matter how confident or great at sales Zoe is, nobody can possibly sell a Flex N Store. Even if you gave them a year and some torture devices - they wouldn't sell a single unit. "It's got snakes and ladders," whines Adam. Seriously, Adam. Is that the best you can do?! Awful, awful idea.

21:29: Poor little Arjun. Does anyone else just want to give him a cuddle. Watching him give a pitch is like watching a lost child wandering around a supermarket looking for their mum.

21:27: Adam and Hibah are struggling to put a tent up. They are bickering constantly. Adam comes across like a bit of a blagger and a plonker. It's like the worst first date you could ever imagine.

21:24: If anyone buys a Flex N Store, I will eat Zoe Plummer's beret. Hannah, Tim, Arjun and Rhys's festival sledge looks a bit clunky, but the idea is good.

21:21: What the f**k have Adam's team come up with?! The Flex N Store is an absolute atrocious mess. It's a gaming unit, table and storage area. Just what I always wanted for a trip to Glastonbury/camping holiday in France.

21:17: Nick Hewer thinks that Hannah and Tim are sidelining Rhys and Arjun. I know it's sacrilege, but I think I disagree with Nick. Rhys and Arjun are coming across like know-it-alls sniping from the back. Will be interesting to watch these two when they are asked to lead on a task.

21:15: Hannah's team are going with a festival sledge. It sounds simple, fun and useful. Adam's team are falling apart at the seams. Zoe, her beret and Hibah are fuming about his project management skills.

21:12: Adam, like most 16-year-old boys, has no idea how to talk/work/interact with women. Don't think his comments about women in business will go down well with Karren Brady. Maggie Mountford would probably have given him a clip around the ear by now!

21:09: The task is to invent a new camping product and sell it to three major companies. Tim: "Have you ever been to a festival?" Just look at Arjun & Rhys. Does it look like they've been to a festival, Tim?! I can't imagine they've been busy popping pills to Orbital down Glade fest too often.

21:07: He's a canny old dog that Lord Alan. Hannah and Adam put themselves forward to be Project Managers. But as a twist, he swaps them around. Adam will lead the girls' team, while Hannah is in charge of Tim 'Wind' Ankers, little Arjun and snotty-nosed Rhys.

21:04: The teams are given a call from Lord Alan and head out to the Isle of Dogs wearing matching Wellys. I love the glimpses of the Apprentice House. Watching the boys dressing up in their suits feels like having a sneaky glimpse at the backstage area of a primary school nativity play. Tim Ankers is going to be the shepherd. Arjun can be baby Jesus.

21:02: A quick recap of last week's episode. A burst of Zoe's beret, some stinking bishop and a repeat of Tim Ankers's "wind" quip were our personal highlights from the opening episode.

21:00: It's time for someone to get fired! Can the Junior Apprentice live up to its cracking first episode? I'm not sure we can beat a killer line like, 'Wind is my least favourite kind of weather', but I've high hopes for tonight's show!
