Although Haya attempted to pin much of the blame on Harry M. Haya was considered the person most at fault for the failure of the task, due to her insistence on selling the pie maker along with her failure to control Lewis. She was ultimately saved by her generally impressive track record throughout the competition. Haya's loss as Project Manager made this the only occasion in the series that she was on a losing team. Lizzie was now the only person who had been on the winning team in every task although after this task, she was never again on a winning teamwhile Harry M.
While Hayley was not in any serious danger of being fired, Lord Sugar warned her that she had slipped into the background since winning as project manager on the first task, and that she needed to step up her game. Zara Project ManagerHarry H. Project ManagerGbemi, James and Lizzie. Create a new deodorant, can and television advert, pitching to clients laid on by Lord Sugar.
Lord Sugar chooses the winning team. Zara was initially weak as a leader and let her teammates dictate the ideas for their campaign, but finally took control when it came to creating the advert. By contrast, Harry M. Lord Sugar said that this was the closest decision in any of the advertising tasks since the UK Apprentice began, but ultimately gave Atomic their first and only win based on the fact that Kinetic's advert and can design were both badly made and did not stand out.

Likewise, James also got into trouble for his negativity toward Harry M.

The team that spends the least amount of money wins. Kinetic immediately left Tussauds, but initially suffered a lack of organization, with Haya not setting a specific list of who should buy what, which nearly resulted in the team buying two three-piece suits for Tussauds' Justin Bieber waxwork. However, the team generally negotiated well, with James in particular being a stand-out.
One item which caused the team trouble was a Dashiki, which they spent the day fruitlessly searching for, with Harry H. Despite being initially more organized, Atomic's sub-team, Zara and Hayley, wasted time travelling to and from Croydon in order to obtain a pocketwatch which they paid wildly over the odds for, under the mistaken belief that they were required to purchase one made of gold.
On top of that, Harry M. Lizzie also made a serious mistake by deciding not to negotiate any discount on a set of shoes near the end of the day, resulting in a massive fine, with Lord Sugar noting that they would have actually received less of a fine by just not buying the shoes.

Lizzie, Hayley, and Zara. Hayley - For continuing to take a backseat on the tasks despite Lord Sugar warning her two weeks previously, and for raising concerns she was too quiet and polite.
Hayley attempted to persuade Lizzie to bring Harry M. Lizzie seriously considered doing this, having implied prior to the boardroom that she didn't particularly want to bring back Hayley despite her weak performance, as the two were close friends, but Lord Sugar interceded and sent Harry M.

James Project ManagerZara and Haya. Lord Sugar arrived at the candidates' house and gave them their task; to produce a brand of popcorn, create two flavours and market them to Odeon Cinemasthe Jet2.
The team with the most order of units win. He then informed the candidates that only two people would advance to the final, meaning that the entire losing team would be fired, along with one person from the winning team. After one last team reshuffle, James became the leader of Kinetic, and Harry H.
Atomic secured 90, orders from all three retailers, but although Kinetic only received orders from two retailers, they won withorders. Kinetic - by 25, orders. Lizzie - For agreeing with a brand that was considered more generic than both Harry M. Harry M- For having the worst track record in the show's history, for having no standout skills other than salesmanship. Haya, with regret - For staying in the background during the task.
This task marked the highest number of candidates fired in one episode of any series of The Apprentice. It still holds this record to date, as this format was never used again.
Haya's firing was also the first time a member of the winning team on "The Apprentice" was fired. This loss made Harry M. James' victory in both this task and in Week 4 made him the only boy to manage a team successfully in either of the first two series not counting Arjun and Tim's joint victory in the final of Series 1and the first and ultimately only Young or Junior Apprentice candidate to hold a record as project manager.
By contrast, Harry H. There was no reward and no final boardroom as such in this episode; all of Atomic were dismissed upon the announcement of the task results, and the selection of the two finalists followed immediately afterwards. Zara was easily selected as the first finalist, as neither James nor Haya felt that she deserved to be fired, and she was deemed to have been a very strong performer on almost every task.
Though Lord Sugar indicated that he felt Haya had actually been more consistent overall than James, James's two victories as project manager ended up earning him the other finalists' spot. Zara Project ManagerHarry M. James Project ManagerHarry H. The two remaining candidates were tasked with designing a new video game, with help from all the candidates from this series.
Both teams had many suggestions; in Atomic, Lewis came up a seaside-based game where they had to stop seagulls eating food, Hayley came up with a looking-after-horse game, and Lizzie came up with a puzzle game where they had to stare at a room for a few seconds and find what is missing. Atomic were originally going to go for the puzzle game, but James came up with an office-based game, and despite the market research finding that more people would play the puzzle game, James decided to stick with the office game, calling it "Crazy Cabinet".
In Kinetic, the team decided to do a game with an animal in it. Mahamad wanted a zombie game, but the rest of the team disagreed. Haya came up with the character of a pig since she was a vegetarianwhich the rest of the team agreed.
Trump was initially going to fire Danny without letting him bring anyone back, since no one else was directly responsible for the defeat, but allowed a final boardroom to take place after Erin and Danny accused Michael of abusing his immunity, and even asked Trump to revoke it.
Danny Kastner — for being too polite and conciliatory while in charge and bringing Michael, who was exempt because of his win as project manager from last week, back to the boardroom in an unsuccessful attempt to get him fired anyway.
Notes This episode features the first time in Apprentice history that a contestant quit for personal reasons, namely Verna. While Trump did say that he would have revoked Michael's immunity if he had committed a serious breach of the rules, he decided that laziness and incompetence was not enough of a reason for Michael to lose his immunity.
He also warned Michael to step up and to not let it happen again. In his exit interview Danny played his guitar and sang about his experience.
He then signed out by saying " Rock and Roll" Week 4: Soap Dopes[ edit ] Airdate: February 10, Task sponsor: Dove and Deutsch Inc.
BBC One - Young Apprentice, Series 3 - Young Apprentice Candidates
Teams are asked to create a second advertising commercial for a new product from Dove: Cool Moisture Body Wash. The winner will be decided by Donny Deutsch and advertising executives from Dove. Ross Magna project manager: Erin Net Worth project manager: No winning team — upon viewing the finished commercials, Donny deemed them both to be so atrociously bad being technically amateurish, offering virtually no information about the product, and containing numerous other major flaws that he told Trump he couldn't even begin to consider naming either team as the winner.
As a result, Trump declared that both Magna and Net Worth had lost the task, and that both teams would return to the boardroom. Reasons for loss of Magna: Magna's advert was unairable and confusing.
Bren came up with a ridiculous idea involving a woman trying to seduce a man by washing a cucumber with him in a very sexually implicit wayonly for the man to walk off with another male, which implied homosexuality and came across as "weird vegetable porn".
Moreover, the soap was only featured on-screen for five seconds at the end of the advert, and no other information whatsoever was given about it. Sent to boardroom Magna: While the soap of the product was featured much more in Net Worth's advert, Donny Deutsch disliked the fact that they had a runner applying the soap directly to his face and rubbing the soap off with a towel. While he was supposed to use water from a hydration point along with the soap, Kristen decided to just film him using the soap in order to save time.
The Dove executives also felt that the product was used inappropriately, as it was intended as a full-body wash, not a facial soap. Sent to boardroom Net Worth: Kristen, Tana, and Audrey. Erin's defense with Magna's team effort impressed Trump, therefore no one on Magna will be eliminated. On Net Worth, it was nothing but pointing the fingers to each other when Audrey went after Kristen's leadership.
Trump did state that Tana wasn't in fault from this task or in the hot seat, and picked Kristen as the most liable for the loss as she didn't control her team and failed to follow through on the original concept, which combined with her past performance, and also saying that the team was hard to lead, give Trump enough information to fire her. Kristen Kirchner — for not holding her team together, inability to control the team, being extremely abrasive and difficult to work with, not having a good reason for bringing Audrey and especially Tana back into the boardroom, for making excuses about the models being out of control Audrey and Tana have said that the models were happy and fineand making a key mistake during the commercial filming having one of the male models use the body wash in a way that was very unappealingon top of losing the post-task boardroom defense to Erin.
Trump felt that while Magna had held together well and tried their hardest to execute a very poorly conceived idea, Kristen had a good idea in her hands but completely ruined its execution, which he deemed unforgivable.
The Apprentice 2012: meet the candidates
Notes At the beginning of the episode Michael was confronted by his team about his laziness in the previous task. Bren who said the dad in me awoke lectured him on how he felt Michael didn't give a damn about the team. He then reminded Michael about how everyone was disappointed in him and he needed to step up. This episode features the first time in Apprentice history that there are no winning team or a reward due to both teams completely failing at the task.
This happened again in The Apprentice U. In the boardroom, Chris made several homophobic remarks when discussing Magna's advert. Trump asked Chris whether he was in fact gay himself, but Chris strongly denied that this was the case, which got an openly skeptical reaction from the other candidates. After returning to the final boardroom, Trump took the unusual step of telling Erin that she was in absolutely no danger of being fired, since she had led the team well, and that she would instead be fighting to save Bren who came up with their awful idea and Michael who had contributed the least to the task.
On the other hand, Kristen was told in no uncertainty that she was facing dismissal, especially when Audrey and Tana admitted that they would rather see Kristen fired than Bren or Michael, despite the two men being on the opposing team.
Prior to the initial boardroom, Kristen got Tana to agree to back her up against Audrey in the final boardroom. In the initial boardroom however, Kristen accused Tana of being rude to the actors hired for the commercial, which quickly caused Tana to turn on Kristen and say that she was at fault for the loss and should be fired. The episode ended with a professionally produced ad for the week's product.
While Net Worth's marathon runner commercial was a failure on The Apprentice, the same concept was used on a commercial in France for Mennen Sport. Airstream of Consciousness[ edit ] Airdate: February 17, Sponsor: Bren Net Worth project manager: Teams had to create their own mobile service business from Airstream. The team with the most profit wins. Donald Trump; George H.
Net Worth did a mobile casting business which proved be a hit despite the risks, leading to result of having a stronger marketing plan. Although they had a good concept of mobile spa-massaging service and had a good location, Magna had weak marketing strategies.
Michael, who was charge of Marketing didn't contribute much of anything to the task, while Stephanie's negative attitude and questioning of Bren's decisions deflated Magna. Initial Boardroom Trump grilled Magna over their awful track record of winning only 1 out of the 5 tasks and seeing that New Worth has been consistently beating them. When asked who should be fired most of team Magna agreed Bren had done well, and were divided on Stephanie, who had very questionable behavior and showed little respect for Bren, and Michael who was ineffective with the Marketing and didn't make any large contribution.
Bren, Stephanie, and Michael Firing verdict: When Trump asked Bren who should be fired, he selected Stephanie, which led to a lengthy argument between the two. Michael interrupted the argument in an effort to back up Stephanie and get Bren fired, but this only served to anger Trump, who thought Michael was stupid for bringing attention to himself during an argument between two people who had made more serious mistakes in the task. Michael attempted to explain that he was just supporting what Stephanie was saying about Bren, but Trump decided he'd had enough of Michael and fired him.
Michael Tarshi — for his poor contributions in the last three tasks, maintaining a negative attitude, making too many excuses, in addition to saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. While Trump felt Stephanie was mainly responsible for her team loss due to her lousy attitude, he decided that Michael's poor performances and interjections in the boardroom gave him enough evidence to fire Michael and give Stephanie a second chance.
In this task, Jill Cremer fills in for Carolyn An additional factor in Michael's firing was the fact that he twice claimed to be the same type of person as Trump; once during a camera interview, and then again in the boardroom. Trump took offense to this claim, telling Michael immediately before his firing: The difference is, I work hard! You've been lazy and nothing but trouble.
Michael left his business card on the boardroom table for Trump after he was fired, telling Trump to contact him the next time he's in Boston, and that he owns a "very large parking lot" in town. This is the last time that Net Worth and by extension, Chris won a task.
Conversely, it was also the final time that Kendra was on the losing team. The Writing on the Wall[ edit ] Airdate: February 24, Magna project manager: Alex Net Worth project manager: Ross; Jill Cremer Trump Monologue Shut Up And Listen Trump emphasizes the importance of listening, one doesn't have to follow what others are saying but it is important to listen in order to learn. The winner will determined as judged by Sony PlayStation's executives, who will base their decision on feedback from local residents.
Magna Reasons for victory: Magna's advert was eye-catching and showcased the variety of scenery and vehicles featured in the game. It also made good use of the Sony and Gran Turismo branding, clearly communicating their message to the locals. Magna also talked to locals about what they would like to see in a Gran Turismo ad, and directly used their feedback.
