The Apprentice: Stephen Brady and Gabrielle Omar are fired!
It's a shock result as Lord Sugar shows two candidates the door
It's a rarity on The Apprentice but tonight Lord Sugar fired TWO of his candidates after both performed poorly. Project manager Stephen Brady and Gabrielle Omar failed to sell enough 'discount deals' and refused to listen to their team-mate's advice.
This week the teams represented a daily deals website that offered online coupons and exclusive deals. Phoenix and Sterling had to prove their negotiation skills, choose the right products and services, create their offers and get a cracking discount - all before 7pm.
The teams waded their way through beauty treatments, hotel stays and restaurants to try and find something appealing. They pitched the website to numerous companies in the hope that they'd offer them a cut-price high-class deal to sell.
While Phoenix went for quality over quantity, Sterling was all about the numbers. Project manager Stephen refused to take Ricky Martin's advice and try a health spa as he was convinced that one large order from a restaurant would suffice. Big mistake!
Jade's team offered both spa and restaurant deals which resulted in a landslide victory.
Ricky landed them over £6000 in restaurant meal deals and that was all down to his pitch. He could have made more if he'd gone for two hundred plates rather than one but sales are sales and he'd have flown if he'd have tried the spa.
Gabrielle failed to impress in the boardroom as her sales were minimal (from a golf experience) and as usual she'd done little else. Fired!
Last week Steve insisted that he could win as project manager but Lord Sugar was left wanting and he was fired shortly after as he'd failed miserably and ignored the suggestion of spa sales. Frankly I couldn't be happier!
