I'd guess because selling to 'industry experts' means that Waitrose, Pets at Home, Boots etc. offer their services for nothing to get free advertising on the BBC. Given the calibre of guests on the after show, I reckon that the programme is being made on a much tighter budget than previously.Apologies if been mentioned previously [I skim read the thread and couldn't see]. Why this series have there been no big sales tasks. The last two weeks have [IMO] been very similar; create a product, brand it and sell to 'industry experts'.
In previous series they have had a big sales task week where teams were given one 'big ticket item' and several small items to sell, typically at trade shows/exhibitions. Always separated the wheat from the chaff.
Makes great tv though and gets people talking doesn't it? Viewing figures, that's all the Beeb are interested in.All of them getting torn apart. They must be proper thick to miss out things like staff costs from business plans, or budget 90k for rent when the actual cost is 390k.
As a group, these are the shittest collection EVER.
