At 23 years old Investment Banker Chris Bates we are informed by the BBC, is passionate about Gordon Ramsey. He sounds sharp in the meetings and verbal but has no ability in presentations, not able to take criticism well and one of the more egotistical (as we see the final cuts anyway) it will be fun to see how he adapts. The boys really did size each other up in episode 1 and the egos will all subside and what will be left we will see. A trader may not have the rounded talents especially at 23 that is needed to compete with some of the others here. Smart in appearance well spoken and sharp he looks very much like he could be an outside bet.
