As the eighth series of The Apprentice comes to an end, Lord Sugar is now left with only four candidates to choose from to make one his business partner.
On Sunday the remaining contestants will have to pitch their business idea to the board and go through a number of excruciating and embarrassing interviews. So let’s take a look at who is left and has a chance of winning.
The business development manager likes to get the job done but sometimes doesn’t really think about the best way to get the job done. For example when she had to do the maths for the Groupon task she couldn’t add numbers together unless they ended in a zero.
She was maybe a bit annoying at the beginning because she wouldn’t listen to anyone, but recent successes in the tasks have shown that she might be alright.
The technology entrepreneur has been quiet throughout the series. During the final task Nick spotted when their chocolate company was going off track but didn’t do much anything about it.
However, when he is in charge he is quite calm, collected and knows how to get the best out of his team as he did with the selling tat to the people of Essex task.
The recruitment team leader with the most inappropriate name for a business man is in with a good chance. His inspiration is Alan Sugar and throughout the series enjoyed having the chance to show off. He even referred to himself as “the reflection of perfection”.
My Ricky highlight from the series has to be watching him force lumpy, horrific looking tomato sauce into glass bottles so that they didn’t waste any of the mixture in the condiment making task.
Tom is the youngest contestant in this year’s final, aged 23, and is the director of a fine wine investment company. He was also the only person brave enough to stand up to Adam when he wanted to make top quality food using the cheapest products available in the street food task.
He has quite an artistic approach to the competition and when he doesn’t like the direction that the task is going pulls a face like he is sucking a lemon.
Head over to our Facebook page and vote for who you think should be the winner.
The winner will be revealed on Sunday when Lord Sugar points his finger and says “You’re gonna be my business partner”, which isn’t as catchy as “You’re hired”.
