The Apprentice's Jenny Garbis has said that being "attractive" makes it harder for her in business.
The 23-year-old student got the axe on last night's latest show after a disastrous negotiation task that Karren Brady branded a "shambles" and a "tale of woe".
In the boardroom, Lord Sugar said that Jenny only ever came out with "excuses" for things not going well.
"Jenny, I’ve yet to see any kind of actual achievements or anything that one can actually pin down to you and say that was very very good," he concluded as he fired her.
Speaking after her exit last night, Jenny said she feared being good looking always put her at a disadvantage.
"I almost find it harder being an attractive woman in business because people can’t take you seriously," she claimed.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Jenny continued: “That’s always difficult. I’d like to think people would hire me because of the way I speak and everything I know about the industry and my passion for it rather than, ‘She looks nice’.”
Jenny added: “People think, ‘Ah, she wants fame’ – that’s because of the way I look.”
However, Jenny then went on to say that she actually does want a TV career, albeit while remaining "credible as a business person."
The Apprentice continues next Wednesday night on BBC One.
