http://www.bbc.co.uk/apprentice/quote:The Apprentice is back with a new batch of ambitious entrepreneurs seeking to demonstrate their commercial insight and business sense to stay out of the firing line. There’s a £250,000 investment at stake and the chance to go into a business partnership with Lord Sugar.
Over the course of 12 tough tasks, the 18 candidates will be whittled down until just one victor remains. And plenty of sparks are set to fly in the boardroom along the way!
Each week the budding entrepreneurs will be divided into two teams - led by designated Project Managers - that lock horns under the watchful eyes of Lord Sugar's advisor Baroness Karren Brady and new aide Claude Littner.
After completing each task both teams return to the boardroom to discuss their inspirational or calamitous experiences and discover which side has triumphed.
The winners will be rewarded with a luscious treat while the losing team’s Project Manager must select two colleagues to accompany them back into the boardroom. Lord Sugar will then hear their arguments and fire at least one of them from the competition.
The eventual winner of The Apprentice Series 11 will be given the opportunity to be Lord Sugar's business partner and receive an investment to the value of £250,000 founded on the basis of their idea.
The Series 11 - Episode 9 of 12
Week nine and the stakes are raised as the eight remaining candidates are summoned to the top of the South Bank Tower. For the next task, Lord Sugar throws the teams into the London property market to sell mid-range and high-end properties to the city's most discerning buyers.
It's boom or bust as the teams have two days to fight it out to see who can sell the most properties and be rewarded the most commission to win the task.
Acting as real-estate agents for million-pound developments, one team goes on the charm offensive to win over clients, while the other team's overfamiliar approach fails to strike them a big deal.
As the teams compete to lure in leads, the sales patter goes into overdrive. Some try the soft sell, while others take the hard line, leading to deals being done and lost.
With each candidate out for themselves, it's dog eat dog as they race to cross the line. Exploiting London's booming market comes easily for some as sales lead to rewards. For others, it's a nightmare, as failed attempts to strike a deal mean they finish empty handed.
It's drama in the boardroom as the pressure gets too much for one candidate. As tempers flare and a heated confrontation ensues, Lord Sugar is left unimpressed. As his patience finally runs out, another candidate faces their final boardroom as they hear the words 'You're fired'.
Nee, komt wel vaker voor. Vorig jaar ontbrak er ook 1 omdat er net een familielid was overleden. Maar of Selina ook zo'n goed excuus had of dat ze er gewoon te zuur voor wasquote:
Ze dreigt sinds vorige week op twitter met een tell-all over haar tijd in het programma. Zuur is een understatement.quote:
