From Law, Tax and Arboriculture (tree surgery) to Fashion Design, Marketing and Sport, The Apprentice contestants all hope to secure a £250,000 investment from Lord Sugar.
It might only be week two of The Apprentice, but the pressure is already getting to the girls team, as they manage to lose their jeans ahead of a photoshoot… for a jean campaign. This week the groups (Team Nebula vs. Team Titans) are challenged to market a pair of Japanese made jeans - including the creation of a campaign, the design of the packaging, and a pitch to a leading board of experts. Over on the girls’ team, Jessica Cunningham (the self-titled female Jim Carrey) takes charge, but laughter soon turns to tears, as she arrives at the studio for the all-important photoshoot of the jeans, but forgets the denims.
Lord Alan Sugar has called on the BBC to commission a new programme to follow up with the past winners of The Apprentice. Speaking about the show’s champions, Lord Sugar said: “They’ve turned into great business people.
Two of BBC’s business programming stars, Karren Brady off The Apprentice and former Dragons’ Den star Duncan Bannatyne, have engaged in a good old fashioned game of mud-slinging. Karren kicked off the ‘feud’ on Sunday in her The Sun newspaper column, when she referred to Duncan, 66, as a “deluded prune” for sharing a snap of him kissing his 35-year-old girlfriend, Nigora Whitehorn.
The successful businesswoman has wowed us all with her no-nonsense attitude and business-savvy persona on The Apprentice, but Karren has now insisted that despite being hugely popular with viewers, she has no plans on becoming a “television personality”. In fact, Karren is so adamant that she doesn’t want to lost any credibility in business that she has turned down prestigious offers from celeb reality shows - including Strictly Come Dancing. The 46-year-old explained: “Although I do ‘The Apprentice’, I have no interest in being a TV personality.
Karren Brady has defended The Apprentice amid claims that the show is a ‘fix’ ensuring fans that the process is ‘organic’ and ‘evolves as it happens’. This week Apprentice reject Selina Waterman-Smith hit back at the hit BBC program saying that the winner is decided before filming even starts and that the whole thing is a fix.
Ok, so it’s not exactly a business plan but as we’re now over halfway through the 11th series, there’s clearly a winning formula that SurAlan has been using. 6. Sadly Nick’s departure has left a frown shaped hole in our screens, so try to capture Claude doing a similar thing.
Another week, another simple-sounding task that gets The Apprentice candidates in a right ol’ spin. Yep, Ruth Whiteley and her technicolour dreamcoat sadly got fired by Lord Sugar after failing to sell a single cat tower. Lord Sugar mixed up the teams again for the task, with David Stevenson heading up Team Versatile and Scott Saunders taking control of Team Connexus.
