What are Marianne Rawlins' skills?

Marianne, who moved from the US to the UK in 2017, says conflict management is one of her strongest skills.

However, she says that she "doesn't have a filter" and may need to "dial down her American-ness" and take a step back as she can be "too direct".

“I’m definitely the epitome of ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ because what you see is not what you get,” she says...

When did Marianne Rawlins get fired?

Alongside Thomas 'BOSH!' Skinner, Marianne was fired in week nine of the contest after her weak management in the musical agents task.
