Lets find some quality candidates this year…


The first episode of The Apprentice kicks off on BBC1 at 9pm on March 25 2009. Don’t miss it!

Twenty thousand CVs were received from applicants around the UK last year and I forgot to post mine! So at least I saved the price of a stamp 😉

Check out the candidate profiles of those that made it:

This series is licence payers’ (and Sir Sugar’s) money well spent. Forget Orange Wednesday at the cinema – Sugar Wednesday is what mid-week was made for!

Sir Alan apprentice ‘bottles it’

“The new series of The Apprentice is already a man down following one candidate’s decision to quit before the cameras started rolling.

The man, who has not been named by the show’s producers, bowed out before the first task had even been announced.

Sir Alan Sugar said he had “never met the fellow” and added “there was nothing sinister about it”.

But in the first episode of the series, Sir Alan tells the remaining group that one of them had “bottled it” and left.” –
