The Apprentice, Series 14 Episode 1 of 14
The search for Lord Sugar's next business partner begins, and this year the challenges are bigger and better than ever. Lord Sugar has already invested his own money in eight businesses, and he is now ready to take a gamble on a brand new venture. The 16 hopeful candidates will be whittled down over the next 12 weeks until only one remains. To demonstrate just how much is at stake, Lord Sugar summons the aspiring entrepreneurs to his boardroom, where he kicks off proceedings with something he has never done before.
Under the scrutiny of Karren Brady and Claude Littner, the candidates are tasked with tackling their first challenge abroad. The teams fly to Valletta in Malta, for a day-long shopping spree. The challenge is to bag nine Maltese items for the lowest possible prices before reuniting at the airport at 7pm.
One team quickly hits the road, but they are clearly on the wrong track. On the other team, fiery personality clashes over negotiations quickly rock the boat. As both teams navigate their way to the finish, one takes a punt by returning with items missing, while disregarding the deadline leaves the others facing mutiny.
In a heated first boardroom, Lord Sugar doles out hefty fines and on the losing team and someone becomes the first to be fired.

Geweldig dat de show weer terug is. Alleen jammer dat ze gelijk met deze opdracht begonnen, het werd daardoor gelijk een heel drukke uitzending.
Gekke uitzending, wel leuk maar wat ging er weer veel fout. Gok dat het nog wel even duurt voordat we een keer iets goeds zien. Mannen maken op dit moment een iets sterkere indruk, hoewel ik ook nog niet overtuigd ben.

Lord Sugar summons the candidates to the House of Illustration, the UK's only gallery dedicated to graphic art. On arrival, the teams are greeted by their business superhero as they've never seen him before. Via augmented-reality technology, Lord Sugar reveals that the candidates are to create a brand new comic aimed at eight- to 12-year-olds. They need to invent a new comic name, main character and original story as well as design a dynamic front cover using cutting-edge AR.
With comics printed overnight, they need to pitch to leading industry figures to secure orders. The task balances creative flair with productive pitching, and the team that forgets either could face a graphic showdown in the boardroom.

Lord Sugar summons the candidates to an 18th-century tidal mill in the heart of London's East End for their third task. The candidates are challenged to manufacture and sell upmarket doughnuts to both a corporate client and the public. One half of each team researches flavours, while the rest set out to bag a bespoke order from a corporate client. For one team, a decision to add spice turns up the heat, while on the other, using teabags causes tension. In the kitchen, a strategy to prioritise volume over quality control results in doughnut chaos, while the rival team face a lack of direction and a tricky corporate order.
