The Apprentice – Supposedly A Cat Fight In The First Episode
The Apprentice premiers tonight on Channel Nine after much hype, and TV week continues it with claims the two oldest contestants in the competition Carmen Parnos and Jane Barclay do not get on.
The article says:
The two women butt heads in the gardening challenge during episode one, in which Carmen 44, accused Jane, 54, of not working fast enough.
“Carmen’s a viper,” the former trave industry exec tells us. “She’s a cow, a dreadful human being and a morally bankrupt individual. There’s absolutely no love lost between us – and the worse thing is we have to share a room.”
While Carmen is her closest housemate in age, Jane says the pair couldn’t be more different, even down to the way they dress.
“She’s very much mutton dressed as lamb,” Jane states. “She seems to have a love affair with lycra and man-made fibres, and that’s so not me. Everything about her is, ‘Look at me!’, whereas I’m a bit more dignified.”
Jane adds that she tried to stand up to Carmen during the first task, but she couldn’t be heard.
“Most people have two ears and one mouth, but she seems to have 10 mouths and no ears,” Jane explains. “People try to stand up to her, but it’s like banging your head against a brick wall.”
And when TV WEEK gave Carmen the right of reply, she didn’t hold back either. “Jane needs to get over herself,” says the mother of two. “She has a very blase attitude when it comes to the tasks, which isn’t going to work in a competitive environment. She just doesn’t have what it takes….”
Thankfully this program is NOT going to be MasterChef Australia nice.
