This Year's "Apprentice" Candidates Are As Stupidly Ambitious As Ever

Prepare to get angry, because The Apprentice UK is back on our screens.

Mark Wright doesn't just walk the walk.

The sales manager says he's got his whole life planned out – he knows what he's doing "tomorrow, in five years, in 10 years, and when I'm 85".


Scott McCulloch knows absolutely everything.

He's a clinical development strategist and says he is a mixture between Gandhi ("because he helped mankind") and The Wolf of Wall Street. Sounds charming.

Solomon Akhtar has multiple tentacles.

The technology entrepreneur says if he can do that with every single task then he has a good chance of winning. Good luck with those tentacles.


Daniel Lassman can sell stuff to people who can't sew.

This director of a pub quiz company says he always "walks into a room with presence", and that once he has arrived "the person knows that I'm here".

Robert Goodwin is the most interesting-looking one.

Why? Well, the marketing manager explains that some of it is to do with the fact that others are wearing suits. He's not wearing a suit. He's wearing a jacket and a T-shirt.


Lindsay Booth is full of FLAMES, or something.

The owner of a swimming academy says that although others might underestimate her because she doesn't have enough experience, she's very determined.

The Apprentice starts next Tuesday at 9 p.m. on BBC One.
