Attempting to encourage health club giant Virgin Active to stock his team’s dehydrated veggie crisps, Brett used just about every word going to hammer home the various benefits of their product. 

It kicked off as so…

Continued with a bit of this…

There was a dash of this, interjected only by aide Claude Littner describing it as “gibberish”…

There was a splash of this…

And concluded with this…

Having watched the episode back, Brett admitted he isn’t jumping for joy over the pitch. 

“That was embarrassing,” the candidate told RadioTimes.com, after his team (and indeed the other team) eventually returned to the boardroom with no sales. “I waffle crap at the best of times, let alone standing in front of a panel of experts trying to promote a product that was really flawed and stuff like that. It was difficult.

“I sat back and watched it and my head fell in my hands and I just sort of thought ‘What is that crap coming out of your mouth?’ In tense situations I think your mouth does run wild with you and you speak but you’ve got no recognition of what you’ve said.” 

“I couldn’t make head nor tail of it either to be honest.”
