The Apprentice 2013 continues tonight, as the candidates take on a flat pack furniture task.
While enjoying the rare luxury of a day off at the house, the candidates are summoned to meet Lord Sugar at Angel Building, Islington, to be assigned their third task.
As he greets the candidates with Nick Hewer and Karren Brady, Lord Sugar explains this week’s task:
“This is the home of The Design Council. One of the biggest revolutions in the last 50 years in design is the rise of the flat-pack and self-assembly furniture market, and your task this week is to come up with an innovative flat-pack piece of furniture. You are going to have to design the product, prototype it and pitch it to retailers. And it’s very simple, the team that gets the most amount of orders for their furniture wins, and the losing team… one of you will be fired.”
The teams have two days to create a unique piece of flat pack furniture, retailing at £75, before pitching their product to potential buyers. Prior to setting off on the task, the ladies are given a polite word of advice from Lord Sugar: “Two weeks have gone by. You lost the last two tasks; it’s time for you to show me what you can do.”
A confident Natalie nominates herself Project Manager of the girls’ team Evolve while Jordan heads up the boys’ team Endeavour.
The show airs at 9PM on BBC One this evening.
