The brand new series of BBC1’s ‘The Apprentice’ kicks off tonight
with no fewer than three construction related candidates in the
Lord Sugar will be running the rule over 18 fresh faces all looking
to give 110% and ‘think outside of the box’ at every opportunity.
These include 25 year old plumbing boss Joe Valente from
Peterborough, who on further investigation is the Managing
Director of Impra-Gas Plumbing and Heating, has said ” I am the
definition of success, I’m a godfather of business and I’m here to
make Lord Sugar a lot of money.” Let’s hope that this isn’t just a
Builder and Royal Navy Veteran Brett Butler-Smythe, 28, claims his
biggest business achievement is starting his own property
development business from scratch claims to be Mr Positive ” I
pride myself on not having any negative or bad traits: they’re all
good, they’re all positive”. let’s hope the Director of Pro Build
South West Limited can remain positive in the boardroom!
Self-styled ‘geezer bird’ Elle Stevenson, 21, from Windsor claims to
be the Operations Director of a Construction company. However, a
cursory search of Director records through Companies House failed
to find a match. She says she enjoys having the power to sack a
worker if they ‘smack her bum’ on site. She also claims ” I hate
anything mediocre – I can’t be middle. I hate being the person that
comes second – I’ve never been the person that comes second. I’d
rather be the one who fell over at the start of the race and never
made it to the finish line”.
We’ll be keeping a close eye on how the constructions candidates
fair over the coming weeks.
