Alex Britez Cabral has become the second candidate to be fired by Lord Sugar in tonight's second episode of The Apprentice 2011. The 28-year-old Estate Manager failed to win over Lord Sugar during this evening's latest challenge.

In tonight's second task the two teams had to create and pitch a new mobile app to top bloggers as well as putting it up for download from across the world. After 24 hours the team with the most downloads would win the task.


For the boys' Logic team, Leon took charge and created the SlangATang app, which provided a range of insults and sound bites in various accents from around the UK.

Meanwhile for the girls, Edna took the lead of team Venture and created AmpiAmps, a sound board which included 'annoying', 'animals' and 'celebration' noises.

After 24 hours and the results were shockingly clear, despite failing two of their pitches the girls' AmpiApps app was downloaded more than 10,000 times compared the boys' app which was downloaded just under 4,000 times.

In the boardroom and Leon originally brought back Alex and Jim, however in what was a strange boardroom move, Jim decided to object and managed to persuade Leon to take back Glenn instead of himself.

Lord Sugar told the trio: "Leon, you took charge but you failed to make decisions. However what's saving you this week is that you've run a business before and have the experience."

"Glenn, you're a technical man, and it's rare to find a good tech man who is also good business man. I'm just not sure if you're that man."

"Alex, you're a good talker, but I'm not here to start a business in writing speeches," Lord Sugar continued. "You already have this reputation that you don't do anything, this is not a job, it's going to be a partnership. I'm not going to do all the work... Alex, you're fired."

Speaking after his exit, Alex admitted to being "disappointed" saying: "Leon should've gone, he couldn’t even make a decision on who to bring back from the boardroom."

The Apprentice 2011 continues next Wednesday night at 9PM on BBC One.
