Wow, Men And Women Working Together Like They Do In Actual Workplaces? How Grown Up.

‘Fair? The only fair you’re gonna get is your bloody train fare home.’

 The Apprentice is back on our screen’s tonight and although we are almost certain that Lord Alan Sugar will not have changed in terms of his sharp remarks and swift put-downs; one thing is different in the 11th series that begins tonight on BBC One.

Men and women will be in mixed teams for the first time.

In past series, the two teams were referred to as the ‘Men’s Team’ and ‘Women’s Team’ by everyone, including Alan Sugar, who has purposely and quite literally ‘mixed it up’ this year – presumably because he thinks it will make for better viewing.

Because as fun as it was to see women collaborating on a business idea, it’ll be even more interesting to see how men and women work together under intense pressure and with a very hefty incentive looming in front of them.

The mixed teams have already caused a bit of a controversy among candidates. With one – as yet unamed – male candidate complaining that the new format would jepordise his chances, because men are better at selling than women.

What a load of bull. The worst bit is, his name hasn’t been revealed otherwise we’d know who we want to see fired first.
