Sneak will be glued to the TV screen tonight for the first episode of The Apprentice, series 3 (it’s on BBC One at 9pm). Although the programme is yet to air, you can already take stock of the preening candidates via the BBC’s web site. Sneak has already taken a dislike to Adam Hosker, the requisite gel-haired used car salesman, who manages to stand out in a line-up of cocky, cocksure cocks by saying, “My strengths and weaknesses are often the same thing, on occasion my confidence can become arrogance.” But on the performance of past series, no doubt Adam will actually turn out to be the kind of laughably overconfident fool you actually end up rooting for, à la the wonderful Paul Torrisi from series 1.
On the basis of job bias, however, Sneak has to root for 25-year-old telecoms manager Lohit Kalburgi, who looks a decent enough chap. He certainly has the ears for monitoring the communications of his rivals.
