    Just Googled it and I have to say, "So fcuking what? It's a telly programme!"
    People getting upset about the result are on a par with the likes of my mother who gets annoyed at the weekly results on Strictly.

    Not upset but you expect a more cliff edge finale. Just seems a con in a way. This is what happens when you don’t teach kids the value of winning and losing. Like sports days where ‘everyone wins a prize’ cos no ones a loser.

    He's not stupid is he ? If he sees two investable businesses - why would he let one escape his clutches ? It's on the TV - someone else would have invested and reaped the benefits.

    I'm happy for both finalists - I don't know why you think one needs to lose here - they don't.

    The boardroom hiring / firing is the biggest part of the show. To just fudge it in the finale just seems an anticlimax.

    We only missed out on one firing - but look on the bright side - we got an extra hiring instead !

    It's what 2017 needed.

    Well said - I've never watched either because they're really not my thing and, in the case of The Apprentice, I don't like the idea of a license fee funded programme acting as a publicity machine for an unpleasant character like Sugar (and before anybody says it, no, I don't believe that it's just an image put on for TV - having met him on a couple of occasions, my opinion is that he is simply not a very nice individual).

    This ..... yes its only a TV programme, but it was a competition thats meant to have a winner ... The Tour de France is only a bike race the London Marathon is only a running race .... but if you sit and watch it to the end and someone decides that actually you can all win ... it makes the whole thing even more pointless.

    I remember them doing this on masterchef ... yay 2 winners ... oh fcuk off

    It’s the fact it’s a tv show to me. The contestants in previous versions win or lose generally go on to be successful anyway, if not because they already are then as a result of the show. Christ, even a hate mongering xenophobic gobshite got a job in the media cos of it. The runner up will hardly be begging in the streets. But if you watch a programme each week and watch them sack them one by one, to allow both finalists to win is a sham. It’s like awarding both finalists of the FA Cup joint winners.

    They stopped awarding the jobs a few years back - it's an investment now.

    But they still have to say "Good Morning Lord Sugar" like a bunch of schoolkids, despite it being a "50/50" partnership in a business.

    And then couldn't invest in Michaela as an entrepreneur because she's started lots of successful businesses.
    and then the next thing you know

    If it was a 50/50 partnership, presumably the winners would also be putting in £250k of their own money?

    Well it's described as 50% for each, but I wonder if the £250k is gifted to the company, or loaned.

    And clearly no one in the boardroom took on the experts comments on how hard it's going to be to find cyber security experts. They cost a lot more than a box of sweets.

    Well they're 2 a penny in the Gambling Casinos according to the Last Jedi.

    In the spirit of balance he should pack both finalists off next year.
