Never before I have witnessed such a writhing cesspit of snakes in all of my life. I'm referring to the episode I saw recently (episode 8) in which the contestants had to come up with an online dating concept and an advertising campaign.
These people make me sick. They're young, they don't care about anyone else and they don't give a damn who they trample on as fight to get to the top of the pile.There doesn't seem to be any human compassion in evidence and I'm utterly appalled at the way these people behave towards one another. Everyone is out for themselves and whilst there is a facade of teamwork, as soon as anyone shows weakness the others pounce on them and rip them to shreds. If this is how business works, you can stick it! This isn't just entertainment unfortunately, these are real people and it's just the tip of the iceberg. There ARE people out there that are just as self-centred, greedy and thoroughly despicable. They wouldn't even urinate on you if you were on fire! They care only for themselves, what they can get and how far up the ladder they can go.
In this recent episode I watched in horror as the only contender who seemed to display any signs of humility or integrity was crushed by his team-mates and then that behaviour was vindicated when 'Lord' Sugar raised his arm and pointed the 'curled finger' and said "you're fired". What kind of a message is this programme sending out to youngsters that might happen to watch? "Oh, by the way, it's Okay to just brush aside anyone who gets in your way if they're stopping you from getting what you want..." I'm so angry right now!
looking for a leg up in the business world
Come to think about it, what do these leeches think they're going get out of this? Rich and successful people like 'Lord' Sugar are in the position they are for a reason and it's not because they showed others any kindness or did them any favours. Yes I know there's a story about income from the programme being donated to charity, most likely just a tax loophole if you want my opinion! My point is that people like that are in it for themselves and this bunch of vipers are slithering around looking for a leg up in the business world, a world which quite frankly is foul and disgusting if it's anything like the way these people carry on. Well good luck to them, they deserve each other!
I guess the notion of gentlemen, ladies and common decency is just a myth after all!
