The Apprentice’s Scott Saunders: ‘I Didn’t Shake Sam Curry’s Hand Because I Felt Disrespected’

Forget last week’s triple firing, yesterday’s episode of The Apprentice saw things really kick off in the boardroom as the normally calm and collected Scott Saunders turned after his team failed to win the discount store task.

Dragging fellow candidates Brett Butler Smythe and Sam Curry back in to face Lord Alan Sugar for the dreaded firing, Scott accused Brett of threatening to “smash his face in”, which both Sam and Lord Sugar’s advisor, Karren Brady immediately refuted.

A messy row soon break out, with tutor Sam eventually being given the boot as Lord Sugar decided to give Brett and Scott a second chance, with the biggest shock of the series coming soon after when the saved candidates left the boardroom and Scott totally blanked Sam as Brett politely shook his hand and wished him well.

Obviously it didn’t take long for viewers to flock to Twitter to slam Scott for being rude and disrespectful, and the businessman has now taken to his own social media account to claim that he didn’t acknowledge Sam because he felt disrespected.

It’s a vicious circle really, isn’t it?

Scott tweeted: “I do agree I should have shook Sam’s hand. Very rude and unprofessional of me. I took a lot personally as I didn’t feel respected/supported. [sic]”

Sam then retweeted the message and insisted that all was well between them, saying: “It’s all good @Scott_Saunders_ and I are cool now ]]>😊
