The Apprentice 2016: Karthik Nagesan falls asleep in the latest task


Karthik Nagesan is seen falling asleep on The Apprentice 2016 this week.

The usually extroverted candidate is quieter than usual after Lord Sugar sends the group out on a special all night task.

As the remaining candidates are enjoying a well-deserved day of rest and relaxation, they get a shock in the house as the phone rings.

With only 20 minutes to get ready, it’s off with their comfy casuals and in to their business suits as Lord Sugar requests to meet them at The View on the 69th floor of The Shard.

As the sun sets over London's iconic skyline, Lord Sugar reveals that he is sending the candidates out to work the night shift.

The two teams must stay awake as the traditional negotiation task is revealed with a twist.

With a tight deadline of 6AM the next morning, the candidates have nine items to source at the best price overnight. The team that spends the least amount of money will win the task.

And the all nighter takes its toll on some, with Karthik dozing in the back of the car.

However Grainne McCoy and Dillon St. Paul don't let him get away with it, starting a sing along to keep spirits up and eyes open.

However even when the candidates are awake, little seems to get done.

Candidates struggle to track down items while negotiations get embarrassing as one team haggles over a 35p discount.

When dawn breaks, it’s a bleary eyed boardroom but there are no excuses accepted for unlucky candidates who face Lord Sugar’s firing line.

The Apprentice 2016 airs Thursday night at 9PM on BBC One.
