    hehe nice info Rob

    seems he's one of those pesky lil kids u get a unis, u know the irritating ones

    why would he need to go on big brother? its only going to destroy his business.

    i dont believe for a second he's been running his own business since he was 8!

    He looks a bit like this guy McLovin taken from the new film SuperBad :)

    I would recommend this film as its a top laugh :)

    Didn't this kid say something like "often I get called a prodigy, but I take it with a pinch of salt" ? Wowsers... he has some gaul, eh. Perhaps he will do well someday though... he can self-publicise pretty well. I think he is mistaken about his company turnover and number of employees however.

    Overall I thought the program was really funny actually, I liked the trick with the earpiece, seen it before but always makes me giggle.

    What the hell is this guy up to??

    http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=448560

    It says he has 2 million customers worldwide, but that was over 2 years ago. Surely he must be a whizz kid to get the 2 million customers in the first place and he would have easily grown his company during that 2 year period?

    I'd love to see this guy on Dragon's Den!!!! :mrgreen: He'd be torn to shreds in seconds!

    HAHAHA Am i right on this one....

    Someone alarmed me to this said he is using a template, (not a custom one)

    Look at his page source

    Links to homestead.com which is a free template company?

    So is it just a simple free site you get on freewebs or something?

    would be funny as hes offering design services :)


    correct me if im wrong :p

    Isnt everyone overlooking the fact that probably the only reason he got on BB was because of his overinflated ego and lies?

    Hes going to be the one laughing if he ends up winning it.

    one theory springs to mind on this one, do you think BB put him on there to gain more controversy (publicity from news papers like they got with the jade goody incident, because ratings skyrocketed. When this gets on the news there ratings will boost up again, i cant imagine a BB researcher putting him in because they thought he was a real entrepreneur.

    just my 2c :)

    Even worse is the amount of royalty free images of Random "Office people"

    I HATE sites like that. It makes sites look so fake on first impression. Plain wrong and shouldnt be used!! It would put me off using the company straight away.
