It's an opportunity like no other.
I don't like teachers' pets and I don't like school bullies.
What I like is young people that have the potential to succeed in business.
From all over the country, Britain's youngest aspiring entrepreneurs
- have come to London. - Has everybody signed on
to the fact that this task was all about making money?
- You're acting like an idiot. You kept shouting over him. - Guys, let it go!
- Let it go, seriously. - Stop shouting, Amy.
Aged 16 and 17, all have a burning passion for business.
- Are you going to listen to me? - We're not doing this now, OK?
Don't dodge the question. Did you lose control of the task?
- Listen. - We did listen. - There you go, not even listening again.
They'll battle it out for a prize worth £25,000...
- Fabulous! - ..the ultimate kick-start to a career in business.
Oh, I'm sweating like a pig at the butcher's!
But to succeed, they'll have to impress the boss - Lord Sugar.
You tried to be too clever, and I'm afraid that it's backfired.
In charge of a vast business empire, Lord Sugar started his career
while still at school.
Now he's on the hunt for his next Young Apprentice.
Bottom line is - you totally went off the rails here.
To win, they have to work as a team...
- No, no. It's poor management. - It was bad management.
- ..but shine as individuals. - 650, cash in hand now.
Because, in the end, there can only be one Young Apprentice.
With regret, you're fired.
You're fired.
You're fired.
Previously on Young Apprentice....
Now, your task today is that you are going to have to produce a cookery book.
..Lucy's team served up recipes for students.
Six teaspoons of peanut butter, four tablespoons of sweet chilli sauce.
But in the race to meet the deadline...
- When are we getting pictures through? - Are they having a laugh?
..things boiled over.
Those sorts of comments are poor from a project manager.
- Are you all right? Don't worry about it. - I'm just really angry.
Sean's team launched a cook book for the professional women...
Ooh, that looks really good.
..against the advice of its focus group.
They didn't like just girls.
They wanted busy, professional men and women.
You never listen to absolutely everything from your market research.
And Patrick's pitch...
It's really not meant to be, er...
It's not, it's really not meant...
..was thin pickings.
That pitch was an absolute disaster.
In the boardroom, the student cook book was the best seller.
Supermarket, Nick?
5,000 copies.
5,000. Wow.
David was brought to book.
The fatal error was the market.
But it was young publisher Sean proved the author of his own downfall.
Your mistake today was taking your eye off the ball.
Sean, it is with regret, you're fired.
Now just ten remain in the fight to become Lord Sugar's
next Young Apprentice.
- Good morning. - 'This is Lord Sugar's office.
'He would like you to meet him at the Coliseum.
- 'The cars will be ready in 20 minutes.' - OK, thank you. Bye.
Guys, in 20 minutes the car's coming to pick us up.
20 minutes, guys! 20 minutes! 20 minutes. Get up.
- Do you know where the Coliseum is? - I think it's a stadium or something.
I think it's going to be a manic day.
I think this 20 minutes is a start of what's to come.
I got a slap on my hand for being too quiet,
- so this week I have to put up my volume a bit. - Yeah.
Game on.
The London Coliseum.
Purpose-built as a world-class theatre, now famous for its opera.
First, an overture from the boss.
- Good morning. - Good morning, Lord Sugar.
Welcome to the London Coliseum.
This is the home of the English National Opera.
And in order to put on these great operas, obviously they need
the singers, the musicians, the actors and, of course, the set.
And your task today has got a lot to do with that.
You're going to go out and procure ten items
that are going to be used in an opera.
So this task is all about the art of negotiation -
you're going to have to get the right price
and you're going to have to do it in the right amount of time.
Now, I'm going to mix the teams up.
David, I'd like you to move across to Team Platinum.
And Navdeep and Alice, you move over here to Team Odyssey.
- Everything clear? - Yes, Lord Sugar. - Well, very good luck.
I'll see you back in the boardroom tomorrow morning. OK? Off you go.
With over 200 performances each year,
the producers need plenty of props.
From antiques to animals,
from the stylish to the sinister.
The teams have eight hours and a list of ten items to find and buy
for some of the world's most famous opera productions.
But first, they need leaders.
- Project manager. - I would like to put myself forward this week.
I feel I've been in the boardroom twice and both times
it was probably because I wasn't leading the team.
Does anyone else want to put themselves...?
- I was going to. - I actually think Steven's really good at organising.
- Shall we just take a vote? - You guys go for it then.
- Steven. - Steven. - Sorry. - That's fine.
'When I'm in a team, I like to know what role I'm doing,'
when I'm doing it, how I'm doing it.
I make sure people know what they're doing, when, and how.
- Are you three OK with being on one team? - That's fine. - OK.
- Lucy, I'm going to put you as leader. - That's fine.
Actually, reconsidering, as you wanted to be project manager,
- do you want to lead the sub-team? - I'd love to. - Yeah?
When you manage men you have to treat them like dogs,
then they'll know who the leader is.
When managing women, you must flatter them,
you have to be kind, smile, show your softer side.
OK, so, David, I'm going to put you as project manager for the sub-team.
OK. Lead the ladies.
Into the spotlight to lead the other team, catering entrepreneur Andrew.
I would like to put myself forward as project manager.
- I'm good with money management and I'd like to win so bad. - THEY LAUGH
- I think I can lead yous to a win, definitely. - Who votes for Andrew?
OK, let's get going. Right, shall we go through each item?
Alice, have a look for the human hair.
Nav, keep looking for the red velvet. Get a few numbers together.
I'll have a look for the car.
Maria, have a look for the cash register.
Patrick, look for the boots. Right, have they all got your items? Start looking.
I was just wondering whether you sell real hair?
- Do you know what votives are? - 'No, I don't know.'
'The strategy is definitely just try and find shops
'which have the items in.'
We can't leave if we haven't got leads.
I was just wondering, would you know anything about taxidermy?
- 'About what, sorry - taxi driving?' - No, taxidermy.
Do you know what votives are?
'Bald heads?'
What I was thinking, we've got ten items. If we do two items each...
I'm perfectly happy with the car and the fabric.
I sort of want to do the car. The black plastic link chain...
We'd need to look for, like, an independent DIY shop.
- There's two items that I have no idea what they are. - Me too.
- OK, are we all talking about the same two items? - Votive.
- And caddle-a-brum. - Yeah.
I don't have a clue what these are either.
- Yeah, candelabrum. - Candelabrum. - Candelabrum.
Maybe it's something that goes in a car or in a washing machine.
- MUMBLED: - Candelabrum...
- Ca-da-le-brum. Cadalebrum? Candelabrum. - Can-del-a-brum.
- Candelabrum. - Candelabrum.
What's the majority saying? Do we reckon that's a drum?
Maybe it might be good if we separated now.
We need to start going to places, so have you got your items?
- Are you clear on what you've got to do? - We'll see you guys in a bit.
- Remember, the cheapest that you can go. - Yeah.
- Got it. Bye, guys. - See you later, good luck.
While Andrew's team stays put, Steven and his team split,
hit the road...
and carry on calling.
Do you have army boots?
- 'What type do you want?' - I want ten pairs of size nines.
Do you have a 30-metre black plastic chain?
- 'I'm sorry. This is a pet shop. We don't sell that.' - OK, thanks.
RUM. Candelabrum.
'I'm not sure on that one, I'm afraid.'
- Do you sell olive trees? - 'We do, yeah.'
We're looking specifically for a four-foot olive tree.
- 'Er, we have got a four-foot tree.' - OK, thank you very much. Thanks, bye.
Lucy, you're going to lead out on this sale and flirt your way...
- Oh, God. I don't know if I can do that. - You can, Lucy.
Hello. I just spoke to you on the phone.
- I'm looking for a four-foot olive tree. - Standard or lollipop or bush?
I don't know. Can we look at both of them?
That looks about right.
- It is really nice. It is £62.95, though. - It is, isn't it? - Mm.
- Could you push the price down for us? - Down a little.
Why should I?
Tell you what, let's give the whole garden centre here a discount. No!
- No, no, but... - Tell you what, I'll get my staff in and see if they'll take a discount.
- We'll buy this tree. - I'll tell you what - hang on. - Come back!
What I did notice is that you have a 10% discount on your...
- House plants. - House plants, yes.
Could we perhaps negotiate that to be a house plant by any chance?
- It's a good line. - We are desperate for this plant. - Are you really?
If you're that desperate, you'll pay anything!
- It would really, really help us out. - We'll call it a house plant.
- And you can have your 10%. - Could we do 15%?
- Could you please push it down to 15%? - No. 10%.
Are you not willing to go down a bit further, with a face like this?
- OK, fine, we won't go there. - I've said 10% and that's it.
- 10%, we'll take it. - Thank you very much. - We'll shake on it. - All right.
High-five, guys.
I think that that went really well.
Something that I would like to remind you, Amy,
is that Lucy did say that she was going to lead out on that.
I didn't get the deal, she got the deal.
Yeah, but when she's talking, let her do most of the talking. Yeah?
If I was going to liken my business skills to any animal
I'd pick a tiger or a lion,
because I think those are quite aggressive animals
and don't like to be messed with.
Can you pass me the phone?
Back at the Coliseum, determined to find leads before leaving,
Andrew's team.
Islington, is that... That's London?
Andrew, we've been looking at these books now for half an hour.
And we've found some things. I'm very nearly on a car,
- you're looking at boots. - We've had two businesses -
- they could be in different parts of London. - Where even are we now?
- Have we got any maps? - Just this. - Just this.
What part of London should we stick to?
As project manager, you should make that decision.
You can't just pin me when I don't know London.
So far I really think we have no form of organisational structure
whatsoever. I mean,
we've got, "You find this and we'll go out and buy some stuff."
Other than that, nothing.
- You've only found one shop so far? - Yeah, and what have you found?
- I've got a number here. - I have an actual address.
You're so immature sometimes.
OK, let's just get on because we've got to do this all day.
Don't worry, the other team will be having as much problems as we are.
East London. First stop for Steven and Ashley,
a street full of discount shops.
Right. So we need 15 metres red velvet. Cool, let's go.
- Usually 9.95 a metre. - It's going to be 150 quid, isn't it?
Would you be able to do around the £4-5 mark?
- I need literally your absolute best. - I'll do it at the 6.50 mark.
If you could drop to 6, we would be more than happy. Shake my hand.
- 50's my margin, honestly. - £6. - Go on. - Thank you.
That's £90, please.
- You don't know what a candella-brum is, do you? - No, I'm afraid I don't.
- Sorry. - Neither do we!
Further down the street, spotted by Steven...
Oh, look, human synthetic hair wigs. That's literally perfect.
..another prop on the opera house list.
- We need 100% human hair. - Yeah. - About 18 inches.
This is 18 inches.
That is so weird, feeling human hair.
So, it is meant to be 39.99. Would it be possible to start at 32?
- £38. That's the lowest price I can do. - So we can't do 37?
No, we can't do 37.
- What about 37.50? - Yeah, 37.50 we'll do.
Right, that's brilliant. Thank you.
- Hi, hello. - 'Hi, guys.'
I'll give you a quick update.
We've bought human hair and the velvet.
Well done. We just bought the olive tree
and I managed to get a 10% discount on it, so it was £56.
- That's really good, Lucy, thank you. - Thanks. Bye.
Right, cool.
For Steven's team, three items bagged.
For Andrew's team, three hours of nothing.
- Oh, my gosh, it's getting so late. - Guys, we are there on the map.
We are in the middle of that circle.
Basically, wherever you go to last you need to get back to there.
Andrew, are you all right with that?
The only person who has actually drilled down
into a very, very important factor is Patrick,
and the factor is actually discovering where we are.
From that, everything else flows.
So I've found the cash machine place. And the velvet place.
I was just enquiring as to whether you have red velvet available.
'Yes, I do.'
I was just wondering, would you have an electronic cash register in stock?
- 'Yeah.' - I'll probably call in at some stage today. - 'No problem.'
I'm looking for a second-hand German manufactured car.
'It's a sedan Mercedes, diesel...
- '..alloy wheels.' - OK.
- We've found four items. - The cash machine. - The red velvet, the car
and the hair. How about me and Alice go and get what we can
while you guys stay here, get some more items?
- Is that OK with you, Nav? - Yeah. - Is that OK with you, Patrick? - If you think I should stay, yeah.
We've still got six things to find, haven't we?
With half the day gone, Andrew finally splits his team.
We're going to smash this. Now we're on the road.
Andrew wasn't very good at organising us at all, I don't think.
No. I like organisation and we don't seem to have very much.
West London.
First on the list for Alice and Andrew, 15 metres of red velvet.
- Hello. - How much is it a metre? - What price are you looking for?
We're having a browse round, seeing what the best price is.
- I can give you best price. 6.50. - No.
That's for 15 metres as well.
- How about we'll do four pound the metre? - It's not possible.
- You can't find it in the street at that price. - Thank you very much.
- Shall I nip next door? - It's up to you, dude.
We're just about to buy 15 metres of red velvet from this guy
- next door at four pounds a metre. - Which colour are you looking for?
- Dark red. How much would you be able to sell that for? - 4.70, that's it.
- We need a better price. - I can't do anything.
You can't do anything? OK, we'll go next door. Thank you very much.
- Right. - We're back! - I'd really like to stick at 4.60, to be honest.
- We were given a budget of... - 4.99, all right.
We'll go £4.70, we'll pay in cash now and we'll call that a deal.
- 4.90. 4.90, deal. - 4.70. Really. - 4.70 and you make my day.
- OK, no problem. - Thank you very much.
£70 - 20 less than Steven paid.
Well done!
This way. Hair and beauty.
Next on the list, human hair.
- We need a deal. - This is called the non-deal shop.co.uk.
That is 38.99.
- Regardless, I do need a deal, my friend. - What do you think you can do?
- Give me one second. - OK.
Can we take off?
- Do it two pounds. - Two pounds.
- Fabulous. Thank you very much. - Now I'll shake your hand!
Two items ticked off for Andrew's team.
- At the opera house... - I'm so annoyed about this.
- ..a chorus of growing concern. - We've phoned up so many places.
I think we just sit here, we're just frittering our time away.
- We need to leave. - What else do we have left to find? - Candelabra.
- I cannot find an antique shop, can you? - These stupid army boots as well.
What would you rather do, look through longer?
Do you sell electric tills?
Looking for a lead on the cash machine, David and the girls.
Would it be OK if I popped in and bought one?
- Ask if he sells second-hand ones? - Do you sell... Do you sell...
Do you see half an hour... Guys, can you just...?
Do you, erm, sell second-hand ones?
OK. Can you give me an address?
- "26 Church Road." - 1... - 26. - 126... - "Two-six Church Road."
- OK, so 1-2-6 Church Road. Could I have your postcode? - "It's 26." - 26.
- Oh, 26. - "Two-Echo-Tango." Two-Tango-Tango? - Two-T-T. - Stop talking at the same time!
- Sorry, two-what? - "ET." - OK, thank you, bye. - "Bye."
Amy, when someone tries to help you, can you please calm down?
- But can you, literally,... - OK, guys, I think. Guys!
No, when he gives me a postcode, I don't need you going na-na-na-nah.
He told you "26" five times, but you still said 126.
- Guys, let it go! - You kept talking over him and it was SO annoying and ridiculous.
- You were acting like an idiot, shouting over him! - Guys, let it go!
- Let it go. - Stop shouting, Amy. - Seriously.
This is why we've been on the losing team twice.
I think at the moment I am keeping everyone calm.
Amy seems to be a very short-tempered woman.
She likes things her way.
Today's really, really, really stressful.
Erm, with Amy and David arguing the whole time,
and I'm breaking up their fights.
We've only got about 2.5 hours before we're due back in central London.
So, we just need to go, go, go now.
OK, so we need good quality but cheap-cheap.
OK, so the £1,000 one's out then.
I've got a single-roll machine down there and that's 170.
- We've got, like, £120, and we've, literally, nothing more. - No money.
- I can't do that one for that money. - OK, how much could we drop down to?
- Please...! - I'll do it 160. - Please, 150. Please! - OK, 150.
Thank you very much.
- Do you happen to know what a can-del-a-brum is? - No. - Don't worry.
- Jukebox! If you want a jukebox. - CHUCKLES - Have a lovely day. See you.
Mid-afternoon. Biggest item on the list - a taxed and tested German car
that can be driven back to the Coliseum.
We know for a fact that Volkswagen is a German-manufactured car.
Volvo is...Swiss.
That don't sound German, either.
Suzuki sounds quite German.
KARREN: If Steven and Ashleigh are going to get the car
they've got to speed up, know where they're going,
and they've got to get there and negotiate good prices.
It's really not good enough.
Can we just drive?
Without an appointment, they head south-west.
Driver, could we go towards the Croydon area?
Twelve miles from the Coliseum.
It's rush hour and all, man.
- Hmm. - We should've had a car first.
Hi, guys, we're having a bit of a struggle finding a car.
'We're thinking to leave the car and go onto the other items,
as time's getting on a bit.
Shouldn't one of you focus on trying to find the other stuff
and one keep going for the car?
Have you used that Autocar magazine on your desk?
- (No, no, we've not...!) - Yes, we've used the car magazine.
OK, so what we'll look for the rats,
the candella-brum,
and we'll still try going for the car.
- OK, we've gotta get on with it. - See ya. - Bye. - Bye.
Right, so we have votives, candella-brum, stuffed rats
- and a car. - So we've got more than we started with.
We should not have phoned them.
West London.
A car dealer.
Taxed, tested and definitely second-hand,
a star German car for Alice and Andrew.
OK, right.
Smells a bit funky!
- Are you happy? - That sounds fine.
- There's rust there. - There's chips everywhere.
- Has someone scratched it and jammed paint on it? - Yeah.
Looks like nail varnish.
- Did you say £800 for it? - 850.
Well, honestly, looking round, I was more thinking 500.
Could meet in the middle somewhere?
I could do it for you...till... 750.
- That's not meeting in the middle, is it? - No, not the middle, but...
I will do it for 650 and I will give you cash in hand now
- and take it off you. - OK.
Twenty years old - £200 off.
With three items found,
Alice and Andrew draw level with Steven's early starters.
But still stalled at the opera... the rest of his team.
I just think we really need to leave.
But once we find this one then we can go.
I'm just looking to enquire for some vo-teevs. Have you ever heard of it?
- 'Little candles.' - Oh. OK.
- 'How many did you want?' - 150? - '150, yes.'
- And do you have any candelabras? - 'Yes.'
- We will literally be there in half an hour. Is that OK? - 'That's fine.'
Having worked out what's needed after six hours of phone-bashing,
Maria, Navdeep and Patrick hit the road.
I can imagine Andrew getting quite annoyed at us
- because we've only found two more things. - Well, tell him how hard it's been.
What have they had to do apart from follow my instructions
of where to go and pick up stuff that you found them to buy?
- It's not like we've been doing nothing. - It is really difficult. - We've been constantly on the phone.
- Hi! - Hiya. - We spoke to you on the phone.
- Yeah, about the votive candles. - Yeah. - We can do them at 10p each.
- And also the candelabrum? - £39.95?
Could we get, like, a total price on everything?
We have a budget of, like, £40 for this.
Well, the cheapest I could go to on this is 8p each - that'd be £12 -
and I could do you that for 30, so it'd be 42?
40's our actual budget. Like, literally, pushing it.
- I'm really sorry, but we're really pushed for time. - OK, 40, yeah.
- Thank you so much! - It's OK. - Brilliant. - Bye.
Five in the bag for Andrew's team.
Next appointment, a definite deal on a cash register.
The cash machine is Hertford Road. N-9.
N9, page 34. Miles away!
I'd prefer to have a drive around... We can always spot shops our way.
Can we stop, please?
Spotted by Alice. Another office supplier.
Oh, and it's a warehouse, as well. Brilliant.
They're going to be throwing them at us!
We're looking for an electronic till? Cash register? Do you have any?
Not an electronic one. I'll show you the only one we've got.
- Like that. - Oh. OK, well, thank you very much, sir.
- "Hello." - Hi. - Hey, Nav.
We've just been to the office supplies shop
'and they don't have any electronic cash registers.'
But we'd called ahead already and they said they had it.
No, we didn't go to the one on the other side of London.
- It wasn't that far away. - It wasn't that far away.
You should've said before. Cos we could have gone to that one.
- Have you had any luck finding anything else? - No, we haven't.
- Keep looking. That's great. Thank you, guys. See you in a bit. - 'Bye!'
They should've went to where we KNOW there was one.
That's ACTUALLY ridiculous. Because that was the first thing we found,
and had they told us they weren't going there, we could've went.
That is poor management.
- Andrew is a bad project manager. - I'm really disappointed.
South London.
Still on the hunt for a road-worthy German car - Steven and Ashleigh.
Er, where are we?
You said head towards Croydon.
The thing is, now I'm thinking Croydon's quite far out.
Getting back in to central London could be a problem.
Oh! There's a BMW there! That is a saloon and it's 695.
- Oh, one minute, it's not taxed. - 30th of 4th, 2012. - That's annoying.
We can ask him if he's got owt else.
Somebody want to by the BMW now, but the BMW has to be taxed.
There is a post office down the road,
but I think they close at 5 o'clock, do they?
No, problem them, I tell them give it a miss. Thank you.
Thank you. Bye-bye.
- Yeah, it's too late. - And you have no other...? - No other. Taxed, no.
I didn't realise how challenging the car were gonna be.
I thought this was gonna be the easy one.
But... it's turned out to be bloody hectic.
We'll make our way back to the Coliseum.
I think we should ring an electrician,
- to see if they know what a candle-drum is. - Yeah.
Do you know what a candle-brum is?
"No, I don't."
East London. 45 minutes to Lord Sugar's deadline.
Teams late back to the Coliseum will face a fine.
I knew that Geography would come in handy one day.
In charge of the girls, David takes a chance on chasing army boots.
- Mile End is meant to be somewhere here. - Wait, what?
That's Gloucestershire! Gloucester. That's not even NEAR London!
Do you still think it's worth it?
I'm going to give him a ring. I've just passed an East London mosque. How far away are we from you?
- 'Five, 10 minutes away.' - Oh, great. Thank you very much.
- OK, David, you can be in charge of sales. - Yep.
OK, so this guy... If it's a man, I'll take him, yeah?
- And if it's a woman you take him. - We've already agreed I'll do him.
- But if we need to step in, yeah? - At the end, yeah. - Yeah. - Great.
OK, hello. We're in a massive, massive, massive rush.
OK, so we came to talk to you about the army boots.
- You said you had them ready for us? - Yes, we have them ready for you.
- And can we have a look? - Yep. Black army boots. - Yeah. - That's fine, OK.
- How much do they cost? - We're doing those at £50 a pair. - No...!
- £50 a pair. - They're normally 80.
- Is there anyway you can push the price down? - £40 a pair, please!
- Please. - I'm begging you. - We will send all of our friends here
- and they've got a lot of money. - We have a tight deadline.
Let me see what that comes to.
- How long have we got? - It's ten past. - Ten past?!
All right. Yep, £40 a pair, so that's £400.
Do you sell bana-lalloo... What was that thing called?
- No, don't worr... - Bandellas? - Yeah. - Bandanas?
- No, no, no, no... They're bandella drums, or something. - Bandella-brums.
- No, we don't. - No, OK, that's fine. Thank you very much. Run, run!
- Ow! Hold the door! David! - Go, go.
Oh, go, go, go!
I'm sorry, it's better you two negotiate, but you were taking too long.
You were stupidly slow.
OK, you have stressed that point.
Yeah, Amy, let's just leave it. It's over and done with now.
No offence, but you two are not easy people to work with. Either of you.
- Neither of you two are either. - How have I not been?
- You're permanently nutty. - Let's just get to the Coliseum.
Cos nothing we say now can change what we've done.
Fifteen minutes to go.
Alice, this shop here. Come on.
For Andrew and Alice. A lead on an unwanted till in a little boutique.
- We've got 15 minutes to get back. - OK. Just give it a second.
This is going to be more than a second. I can tell. I know women.
(Andrew! Say sorry for bothering you...)
I want to work out how to chip in.
Could we talk to you very quickly? Would you mind?
- No, I don't mind, but I am serving a customer, so... - OK.
Sorry, we have to go. We're really stretched, sorry,
can we just talk to you for a minute?
- Maybe you should go. - OK, thank you. - I... Uh!
Camden Town. Final call for Maria, Patrick and Navdeep.
- Ten more minutes, one more shop, then we're leaving. - Yeah, come on.
- Let's go. - Can we know where we're going?
- Plastic chains? - No? - Only metal.
We've definitely got five items and that's atrocious, to be honest.
Get in the car, go back to the Coliseum,
and just deal with the fact that we've only got five.
We could have had six, if it wasn't for those absolute idiots!
I wonder if he thinks that he's actually done well.
STEVEN: He's probably thinking he's this great project manager who's done so well.
Great project manager, my bum!
- You left yet? - Yeah, we're on our way back now.
'Have you found any cars?'
We've literally tried everything we possibly can.
And it's just not happening.
- Do you think you'll get back in time? - I don't know how far away the London Coliseum is.
- 'We'll see you soon as we can.' - OK, guys. See you.
- The other team should've... - Why couldn't they have found the car?
I think to be honest, we should have had a little bit more organisation.
People should have been allocated certain products
which didn't really happen.
- They've got no chance of getting back. - No, no way.
That's typical David, though. Cos you know he just rushes into things.
I dunno, we'll just have to see in the boardroom.
Whether it was the right decision or not.
I don't think he'll survive another week in boardroom.
- You can't go in boardroom three times and survive it. - No, exactly.
The Coliseum.
The stage is set.
There are penalties for every item missed.
Or for turning up late.
Can you just recognise the reason we're a little bit annoyed?
- At 11 o'clock she found a place that sold a cash machine. - OK.
So the fact we actually had a shop for one of the items
and you DIDN'T BUY IT is ludicrous!
- We just thought... - No. It's poor management. - Bad management.
So, we've missed the deadline.
I definitely think we've lost this task.
It's your fault.
- You come in with the Odyssey bad luck. - It's your bad luck.
I knew the stupid name was cursed.
Tonight, down comes the curtain.
Tomorrow, a performance in the boardroom.
You can go through to the boardroom now.
Good morning.
ALL: Good morning, Lord Sugar.
Right. Team Odyssey.
- Who was the project manager? - I was project manager, Lord Sugar. - OK.
- Did you get good support from your team? - From Alice, yes, but not the sub-team. - Really?
- I think that's an exaggeration. - No, at the end of the day you were screaming.
- At the end. - Well, when you see ten items on a list and you only have five,
I'm not gonna be jumpin' for joy!
All right. Tell me what went on.
We all stayed in in the morning and looked for the places to go for the products.
We then split up to me and Alice to buy the products we'd found,
and Maria, Patrick and Nav to stay behind to find some more products
and then go out and buy them.
- What time in the afternoon did they leave? - Quarter to three. - What?!
Three o'clock? From when I left you at about eight o'clock in the morning.
- We were told not to leave until we had a lead. - Who told you that?
I told them to stay for at least half an hour. ALL SPEAK AT ONCE
They stayed for six hours!
He really did make a care that we shouldn't leave unless we had a lead.
But I'm getting reports here that you didn't get all of the items.
We didn't locate four of them, and we didn't have time to get to the last one.
- But didn't you locate the cash register? - We did.
So if you located it, why didn't you go out and get it?
Well, we found it and they decided to try a different location
- from the one we'd organised. - They told us they'd deal with that.
We didn't want to sabotage our own team.
You didn't choose not to go and get it.
No, but you could have rang us earlier and told us.
Bad deployment of people, I think.
I thought they'd be able to get more than two items.
Surely as a project manager, you should have told us
to go out and buy items.
I asked you if you were happy, and you basically....
And last week you told me not to be such a bull in a china shop,
- so I just bit my tongue. - That went out the window, too. - How?!
Within the first half hour...she called me immature.
- But were you being immature. - No.
This was never going to be a simple task.
I wasn't sending you out to buy half a dozen eggs
a bottle of milk and some corn flakes.
This was supposed to be there to test you a little bit.
It seems to me that your team wasted a hell of a lot of time
trying to locate things.
Admittedly, in the first half hour, it was a bit everywhere,
but then I remember clearly asking everybody for one item,
- and nobody stuck to it. - Hmm. All right.
Platinum, who is the team leader?
That was me, Lord Sugar.
Steven. How did that come about?
Ah, so it was me and David both put ourselves up.
- David, you put yourself forward? - Yes, I did. - What happened?
I think that with my track record, people were a bit shaky.
What happened to all this charm? You said you could charm the ladies?
- What happened to all of that? - I think there is doubt in people's mind, once they see...
Oh, you must be immune to his charm, ladies.
Er, right, what did you do with your team, Steven?
In the brainstorm I split the list into words we didn't really know what meant.
- Which words didn't you know what meant? - Candella-brum, as you called it. - Candella-brum.
Shouldn't the first section of it - candle - give you a hint?
- You don't know what it was? - Just missed it.
- What things did you come up with? - I thought it was a South African instrument.
I thought it was some sort of drum.
Ashleigh thought it was a piece for a washing machine.
What do you think the opera's putting on? The Repair Man From Seville?
- Did you find out what it was in the end? - No.
- Still don't have a clue what it is. - It is something you put candles in,
that stands on top of a table or a piano or something like that.
- OK. - Mm.
You seem to be quite light-hearted about this, as if it's funny.
- It's not funny. - It's not. - It's a bit pathetic, to be honest.
- Steven, what were you doing? - I was looking for cars. - Did you get one?
- Unfortunately not. - Why not?
We rang every dealership we had and every ad in the car...
You didn't take it too literally, given this was an opera,
trying to get a car for a TENOR?
- For? What's that? - You know what a tenor is, do you? Oh, dear. - Sorry.
- It's not something that comes out of my wallet. It's a singer in an opera. - Oh, OK, sorry.
I'm not a fan of opera, I'm afraid.
So, listen. On balance, how was your project manager?
I think Steven was good.
I think his biggest mistake was putting David as sub-team leader
because, honestly, I don't see any decisions made by you whatsoever.
- I think, in the task, both of you shouting... - I didn't shout.
Because I knew that if I was to come to their level, none of them would listen to me.
- You two argued the most. - David, David.
You spent the last three weeks explaining to me
how you try to handle people and you don't want to get to their level.
You know what?
If you want to survive in this process,
you'd better get to their level.
Think I've heard enough. Let's try and work out the numbers.
Karren, perhaps you'd like to tell me how Platinum got on.
You only bought five of the items and they cost you £734.
Then there's your fines for being late and the price of everything you didn't buy.
That comes to 1,470, making a grand total of £2,204.
Odyssey spent £797.
Total fines for everything that you failed to source and buy
amount to £1,236,
leaving a grand total of 2,033.
We've won.
I would like to say well done.
It's a bit of a shame when you have £797 of expenditure
and £1,200 worth of fines.
Nevertheless, there's a treat going for you.
You're going to the world's most famous toy shop.
You go there, have a look around and go and buy yourself some gadgets.
- I'll see you on the next task. - ALL: Thank you, Lord Sugar.
All friends now? OK?
You need to go off, work out amongst yourselves what has gone wrong,
because one of you - at least - will be fired today.
- OK? Off you go. - Thank you. - Thank you, Lord Sugar.
Oh, my God, it's flying!
- Oh, my word. I'm in love. - The dark purple. - The dark purple, yeah?
I like the orange. The orange is cool.
Oh, my God, that's like a Barbie girl's watch.
It's cute! Aw!
Maria and Andrew seem to be very tense in their relationship
and there are often sparks there.
Our working relationship's quite temperamental.
We really do sort of clash.
Look at his face.
That was actually... That was close.
I don't think it will affect my working relationship with Maria,
cos I'm used to working with people I don't get along with too well.
- Literally, one just went in my eye. - That's so good.
The thing in my mind is the fact that,
David, I put you as leader of the sub-team.
You didn't take any kind of leadership.
You let us do what we want.
You never stood up and said, "I'm the leader, I'm doing this."
You didn't do that, so don't try and tell me you did anything,
cos you were lazy.
I think it's obvious everyone will try and pin it on me,
simply because I've been in the boardroom twice already.
I think it's more of a tactical move to save themselves.
There's a lot of complaints with David being leader of the sub-team.
It's a bit disappointing
because he wanted this time to shine and he's done the opposite.
Can you send the candidates in, please?
You can go through to the boardroom now.
Steven, where did it go wrong, in your view,
now you've had time to think about it?
The main thing is that we got the wrong object,
but we did try our hardest to get the car and it just wasn't happening.
Mm. What did you do, Ashleigh? You're being very quiet.
That also won't help you, because if I don't hear from you, I can't form an opinion
when I'm thinking about whether people should remain in the process.
That's understandable. I was the one to spot the car garage that we drove past
- on the way to Croydon to go and look at another car. - Croydon? - Yeah.
Geography, geography. Where you were located, to get there is hours.
Hours driving there and hours driving back.
I told the driver to go towards Croydon because I knew it was south.
But it was Brixton where the dealership was.
It was a lack of planning where it went wrong, don't you think, Steven?
- I do agree that planning was slacking. - So, the ten items.
- How did you divvy it up? - We started with two items each.
What was your remit?
- I think mine was the cash register, not sure, and the black plastic... - You don't know?
I kind of got the last endings. I'm not 100% sure what mine were.
You don't know what you were sent out to go and find?
I don't remember giving specific objects to people.
- I thought someone just said you gave two to everyone. - In the morning, yeah.
Were you in control of this task, or were you lost halfway through?
Everyone was saying they were happy, they were clear, they knew what they were doing.
The thing is, we did know what we were doing in the morning - that was fine.
Throughout the day, I think we got a bit confused and at that point, David should have stepped in.
When I was on the phone to people, often...
When I was trying to get an address, David would talk at the same time and it was so frustrating.
At one point, I had to say to David, "Can you just stop talking at the same time?"
- That's when I lost my temper. - Can I explain?
- The man clearly said 26... - David, I couldn't hear a word he was saying.
..Three times.
You kept talking at the same time as the man, I had no idea what was
being said because you and Lucy kept talking and then you kept talking.
- I wasn't. - You were talking to each other and it was annoying. - Steven, where are you in this?
- This is the sub-team, they don't... - You don't know what's going on? Are you monitoring the progress?
Every time I rang, I said, "Everything OK? Anything I can do? Anything more you want to do?"
- I didn't hear about this. - I used to send my salesman out as a young man.
I didn't phone him up and say, "Everything fine?"
They would say, "Er, yeah, not bad."
Never mind the "not bad" - "How much you sold?"
Or in this case, "How much you bought?" Did you ask that?
I did and it was always, "We're just going to do this, we're just going to do that."
I was phoning them as much as I could. Communication is...
Then surely, you're not very intuitive in the sense that what you must have been hearing is,
this ain't going too well down there.
- Steven. - Yes, Lord Sugar. - Who you bringing back into this boardroom?
I put David as sub-team leader and I heard nothing from him.
Squabbling with one of your team members is something I hate,
I think it's massively unprofessional.
And I feel that Amy's communication wasn't there.
So I'll bring Amy and David in.
OK. Ashleigh and Lucy, you go back to the house.
You other three, I'll see you back in here shortly. You step outside.
Thank you, Lord Sugar.
Well... Steven's kind of sliding down in his chair.
They had great willing and desire to get the items,
despite not knowing what they were, but they didn't plan to get there. Them were no appointments.
- They were aimlessly driving around and actually lost their way. - He's brought back in Amy and David.
David, again, I don't know if he's his own worst enemy.
He thinks he might be too forceful, so he sits back.
He thinks he's sitting back too much, so he tries to be forceful.
- Actually, the skill is to be yourself and do your best. - Yes.
Amy, she has a problem communicating.
- Quite an aggressive style. - A bit aggressive. She just like a row.
She loves a row.
- Yes, Lord Sugar? - Send the three of them in, please.
Yes, Lord Sugar. Lord Sugar will see you now.
I'll start with you, Steven. Why did you bring David back in?
With David in this task, he was a leader and leaders are meant to communicate - I made that very clear.
I think that from my perspective, I had to calm Amy down.
I don't think you had to calm me down. We had a few arguments.
You were incredibly lazy, you were not self-motivated, you kept jumping on my job.
We spent half the day in the car and half the day, I swear,
every time you swore or raised your voice, I would be a billionaire.
Ask yourself why. You were constantly rude.
You were supposed to be team leader. I wasn't constantly rude.
You were so lazy. You were supposed to be our team leader.
- Me and Lucy were telling you what to do. - No. - You had no idea.
I sorted out your army place to get those boots.
- You would never have got that by yourself. - How do you know?
Lucy had to sort your negotiation. I had to tell you to hurry up with the money.
You were useless, David. You were useless.
You've said here, Amy, in your application,
"Business skills like an animal, tiger, don't like to be messed with."
These are your words. Is that right? "Don't like to be messed with."
I argued with David cos I constantly felt frustrated by him
and there was a lack of communication between us and Steven.
I asked you, "Are you OK? Is everything clear?
- "Anything you want me to do?" - They were just saying everything's fine?
You weren't asking the right questions. Course we'll say we're fine if we feel like we're fine.
But if you don't ask the right questions...
- Why do you think he's ringing you? To find out what the weather is? - No, but if he's saying,
"How are you feeling at the moment?" We're going to say good, because we're about to go and get something.
You should have asked more questions. Have we got this? I asked you about the velvet.
What do you mean, I should have asked more questions?
- You should have asked, "Have you got this? How much time have you got? Is is possible?" - What questions? Amy?
Is it possible to get from where you are in London to this place?
We could have looked in the directory, where we were, how close we were to the nearest thing
and done it like that. But at no point did you do that.
David, did you tell him there was anything wrong?
- The arguments we had... - David, David, David, let's park the arguments.
I'm not talking about them. I'm talking about finding products.
Project manager rings you,
"How you getting on finding some of the stuff?"
In the day, we were working so hard we literally called every single phone number we could.
We were fine because we were doing our job.
My problem was that you guys found your products within
the first period of the day and then throughout the entire period, you didn't find anything else.
Right, listen. Steven, why should you stay in this process?
In this task, I managed the team as well as I thought I was doing.
If I'd got the feedback, I would have managed it 100 times better.
- But they didn't let me know. - Mm.
- Amy, why shouldn't I fire you? - Yes, this task did not go well,
but I've got so much left to show you and I just want to show you it because if you let me go now,
I haven't fully shown you as much as...
- You haven't shown me much. - I haven't. - You haven't shown me much.
- So, Amy, who should be fired? - David.
I do think, if you're on the losing team twice, you have to question yourself.
David, why should I keep you in this process?
Because I've been in the bottom three now three times,
this is incredible pressure, but through it all, every week,
I come back and fight and I fight harder.
- The fact is, you're still here. - Yeah.
Obviously, I've lost, but it hasn't been my fault.
I can assure you that not all 17-year-olds can sit here
and fight the way I'm fighting now,
go back to the house, chin up and move on.
I think I've heard enough for me to make a decision.
Steven, this task, you have completely messed it up, in my view.
- Completely out of control. - Lord Sugar... - Yeah, no, I'm talking now.
It's completely out of control and people are running around and you didn't know what they were doing,
you didn't have an indication of what they were doing,
you didn't know whether your sub-team was getting on well.
I totally disagree. I know why you think that, but can I say...
- Listen, I'm talking. - Sorry.
David, I like your fighting spirit.
I really do. There is an element of no smoke without fire. Yeah?
We're only in week three and you've got 100% record of being here.
Amy, I don't like this rather powerful
and blunt method of dealing with people.
That is not a way forward.
What I've heard today and from a bit of observation I've had in the past from Nick and Karren...
..it is with regret that I'm going to say...
..Amy, you're fired.
Thank you, Lord Sugar.
- You, I hope you learn something from today. - Definitely. 100%. - Off you go, the pair of you.
- Thank you very much, Lord Sugar. - Thank you, Lord Sugar. Karren, Nick.
This isn't the end of my business dreams.
Today was a massive knock but it's going to have to make me stronger.
- Who do you think will be fired? - I think we all love Amy in the house, but to work with her,
she is a pain.
Based on this task alone, David deserved to go.
I can't see Lord Sugar letting someone into the boardroom three times.
He can't justify keeping David three times.
I reckon the guys at the house will be shocked that you're back,
and I mean that in the nicest way possible.
Hopefully, they'll be happy to see me.
- Hold on. Did you bring anyone else? - Who's with you? - Hello.
Oh, my God! How do you do it?!
Oh, my God, how did you manage that?!
I said you two were coming back and these lot were like, "No, no, David's going!
"David's been in t'boardroom twice already!"
I am like a cat with nine lives and I need to...
Now, nine candidates remain as Lord Sugar's search for his Young Apprentice continues.
Next time...
Your task is to create a themed afternoon tea service at one of this country's greatest stately homes.
..tensions brew...
- It's my head on the line. - It's all of our heads on the line.
Go on. David, give him the food he's been waiting for for three years.
That family has been there for over half an hour now.
Then do it!
..and boil over in the boardroom.
- It's ridiculous that in the boardroom is when I find out! - I'm going to get very angry here.
You're fired.
