Task 4 (Wednesday 11 April):

4/12. The contestants open second-hand shops in London's East End, home to a thriving market in retro and refurbished household goods. Buying their stock from junk parlours, car-boot sales and auctions - and even rifling through rubbish bins - one team choose quality over quantity, seeking out a few choice items, while the other fill their shop with bric-a-brac which they hope to spruce up later. But when they open their doors to the public, it soon becomes clear that mistakes have been made on both sides.

This means that Jade doesnīt have any direct proof of surviving into week 5 (though there are a few boardroom clips which could be her in the background).

Could it be Jade who switches to the (mainly) boys team? Probably, as that would explain the female figure in the boardroom behind Stephen and Ricky on different occasions.

And the fitness video task will probably follow this task, though I hope for some new intro clips next week.

Based on the information so far, the following candidates seem like good bets to fall before episode 7 (and therefore not making it into the final 10, bar a double firing):

Michael
Jenna
Duane
Azhar

(the first 2 are certainties, the other 2 are guesses, will all depend on the intro clips used in next weekīs task)
If any of the candidates had even half the amount of brainpower and analytical ability demonstrated on this thread, they'd walk it.

I think they might not have a double firing this series. Maybe they will do what happened on Young Apprentice, Where on Task 11 the final 6 will compete with the losing team all getting fired and the final 3 make it to Week 12??
Based on past history, there should be a double firing in this series. So far, this has happened in weeks 2, 5 and 7.

That's definitely Princes Street.
They were doing tramworks then and the buses/traffic had been redirected to George Street. Looks like Jenna's stall is beside the Royal Scottish Academy.
I only saw it when I watched the show and couldn't see any road. I've checked again and noticed she's on the other side of the road so yes, you're right it's Princes St at the gardens side.

This is my prediction for the next few weeks:


Week 5 (Fitness Video)

Spoiler




Week 6 (Scotland food task)

Spoiler



Week 7 (Scavenger Hunt)

Spoiler



Week 8 (Selling random goods)

Spoiler



The above prediction only works if the scavenger hunt task (if that was the task featured in the car clip) happens sooner rather then later (for all we know itīs task 9, like in one of the previous series).

In the preview clip Alan Sugar said " I did warn you about doing that, and that's a bad management move, that is''
So maybe either the PM's (Stephen and Ricky) will be fired or the leaders of the two sub-teams.
Hope this helps.

They tend to try to balance out the sexes between the teams at this stage. But in your week 6 scenario, if you transfer one Sterling guy to Phoenix, this will leave Phoenix with 4 boys and Sterling only 2.

No winning PM from a previous task has ever been the subject of a double firing so far (let alone two winning PMs), so your week 7 scenario will be a double first.

Have you tried placing the BR clip of Ricky with Jade and Gabrielle behind him in your predictions?

Based on the clips, I still think this person will be fired in week 5:

Well, a double firing is also something rare in The Apprentice (only series 4 and series 7 had proper double firings, Ifti doesnīt really count).

Besides, if that team loses someone has to go and one of the others is favourite of Lord Sugarīs and the other two have been confirmed on one of the next tasks.

Plus the fact that the person who saw the candidates (in either task 7 or task 8) already speculated that it was probably a 4 vs. 4 split at the time.

Mind you, itīs just a prediction and not really based on facts (apart from intro clips, not keeping in mind past PM form, remember that Mona got fired the week after she won as a PM).

No, I think for the moment that it is actually Jenna (see car clip from the intro and my line-up for task 7).

I'm pretty sure it's Jade not Jenna behind Ricky as I can see her rather distinctive collar in the clip. But we'll just have to wait and see how this pans out (no use speculating too far ahead).

Well, I can see your point (not having checked it myself), but it seems like the light clip will be from the Scotland task (next week) and Jade is not on Team Sterling there (as Katie and Jenna are located on different areas in Edinburgh).

Furthermore, after task 6 (next week) we will have a 5 vs. 5 team line-up (and no more 2 candidates standing behind the sitting candidates) and if it goes to order then team Sterling will be on the other side of the table in the opening boardroom (as seen by the Adam as PM clip with him being flanked by Katie).

These are the reasons why I think it canīt be true, but we will see.

I do hope we will get confirmation on wednesday about a few more candidates on later tasks (if the intro stays the same, we might be in the dark if the task in two weekīs time happens to be the scavenger hunt task).


P.S. The reason for me putting the car clip of Jenna and Stephen (probably scavenger hunt task) between the two sightings of candidates (Scotland and selling random goods) is because it would otherwise mean that especially Jenna would get very far and the fact that this is a one day task.

Tension with Duane this week, starting to think he might be going this week, which will be a shock if editing is to go by as he seems one of the strongest

But even if it is Jenna and not Jade behind Ricky in that BR clip, Sterling should be sitting on LS's left in week 6, and not on his right as in the BR clip. So it looks more like Gabrielle and Ricky moving over to join Jade on Phoenix in week 6, which raises questions about the light clip etc.

According to the latest RadioTimes, both teams have mobile gourmet food outlets (this would explain the various sightings of the teams on Gorgie Road, the Grassmarket and Princes Street).One team sells cheap Italian meatballs and the other sells expensive stew. One team has a girl dressed as a pizza (Katie?, the "hot blonde in the pizza outfit" mentioned in other forums, on the Italian meatballs team?) and the other has a guy dressed in a funny suit.

According to another forum, both teams had SCRAN vans at the Hearts stadium on Gorgie Road, with one team at the Hearts end and the other at the Rangers end. Hope tomorrow's clips will shed more light on Task 6 and the respective teams.

Personally, I think that the light clip is one of the more concrete pieces of evidence we have.

It can only happen in task 6, 7 or 8 and it has to be Team Sterling. So, unless a few people are switched task by task it will be hard explain the light clip with your conclusion.

But this would mean that perhaps Jenna and Kate are indeed on the same team (which would explain the Jenna and Stephen clip further down the line)?? But according to the switch mentioned above this isn't the case according to you??

We will see, at least we will know the teams for next week tomorrow (even if there are no new intro clips).

If they mix the teams in week 6, we won't know whether Jenna and Katie are on the same team until tomorrow's task 6 preview clips.

I agree, the more I think about it, the more it makes sense to me that Duane will go this week.

It seems highly likely that the Light Clip is Week 6 (It matches 5 members that are currently on it) and Jenna seems to be the PM (which matches with the new intro clip we saw last week and also she is the only one on Sterling that hasn't PMed by that week)
It doesn't make sense for Duane to be transferred to Phoenix at the start of Week 6 for no-one. He seems to mess up the pitch in the preview and if there are tensions then he could well go (No evidence whatsoever that he gets further)

If he does go, my tip for Final Five would be:

Nick
Tom
Gabrielle
Jade
Katie

But even so, it would be a huge shock for him to be fired this week.

I think Azhar will be fired this week. Duane is too much of a strong player IMO and considering LS kept Laura last week he is for sure to save Duane even though he might mess up

On a different note, when do the parents of the candidates have to sign off on a contract (to tell nothing about the whole process)?

Is this right from the start (so, all 32 parents have to sign off on it) or only when the final five (where the parents are featured of those five) are announced (so, only 10 parents)?

Trust me, this might lead to something (or not).

One of the parents, at least, has been talking on a forum about their child and mentioned something about signing a 40-pages long contract to keep their mouth.

So, if this contract comes into play for the final five documentary (parents, siblings, friends) then this candidate will at least get that far.

About the candidate in question, will only say that they have two things in common with Lord Sugar.

Yeah, just saw that. Things are starting to look very bad for Duane.

I'm currently:

65% sure Duane goes
30% sure Azhar goes
4% sure Tom goes
1% sure Jade goes

All others are safe, right?

Phoenix

Katie (On Scotland Food Task)
Stephen (Clip with Jenna)
Adam (PM Clip)

Sterling

Nick
Gabrielle
Jenna
Ricky
Laura (All Light Clip)

That doesn't mean that he wasn't in London for YF, though.

I hope so! He is still one of my favourites at this stage, but I'm just trying to piece together the facts and no matter how you look at it, the light clip indicates he doesn't get to that stage...

I cant see it though, unless as it was implied in last weeks episode he becomes even more cocky in this episode and he messes up the pitch big time, no one else can get fired.
