Despite not even being able to sell juice on the streets of London, accountant Edward Hunter reckons Lord Sugar was wrong in firing him, saying he could've made the boss millions! Edward became the first victim of the boardroom last night's first episode of The Apprentice 2011.
Speaking to BANG! Showbiz after his premature exit, Edward said: “I don’t think he knew what to make of me – I would have made him millions with my product, so it’s his loss."
And despite being seemingly lost for words in the boardroom on last night's show, Edward insisted he wasn’t scared of Lord Sugar, saying: "He’s not intimidating at all, I wasn’t scared of Lord Sugar! Facing him in the boardroom wasn’t an intimidating experience.”
Edward was fired from the series after leading his team in a task to turn £250 worth of fruit and veg into profit. Despite bringing back over £400 to the boardroom, the girls triumphed with just under £600 - despite spending just £160.
The account added that his looks at Lord Sugar in the boardroom were all put on for the show, explaining: “That was just all a bit of drama, it was put on really. That’s what they want when they take you on the show though isn’t it? You couldn’t pay for that look I gave him – it was great acting.
“They wanted drama, and that’s what I gave them.”
The Apprentice 2011 continues tonight at 9PM on BBC One.
