Fired Apprentice hopeful Natasha Scribbins has suggested she missed on a place in Sunday's final after 'giving up' halfway through the 12-week job interview from hell. Speaking to Dara O'Briain on BBC Two spin-off You're Hired last night, Natasha said she had ran out of energy by the end of the series.
Lord Sugar told openly bisexual Natasha: "You started like a house on fire but I've found you lacklustre in the last few weeks."
And the 31-year-old recruitment consultant agreed, saying: "I showed him a lot of energy at the start but the weakness that he saw was that I didn't carry it through in the end."
"I wanted to jump in the screen and give myself an extra energy boost," she said after watching her final episode back. "I gave so much energy in the beginning that by the time I got to the end I had run out of gas."
Natasha became the latest candidate of the boardroom on last night's penultimate show after Lord Sugar tasked the teams with creating their own brands of fast food restaurants in the centre of London. However while Natasha may have lacked enough energy to put herself forward - especially given her degree in Hospitality - she had plenty to use when it came to clashing with Susan Ma.
"Susan is only 21 and hasn't been in a corporate environment for nine years like me," Natasha explained. "So it's difficult to adapt to working with someone in that way. It is quite an aggressive environment."
The Apprentice 2011 final will see Helen Milligan, Jim Eastwood, Susan Ma and Tom Pellereau battle it out this Sunday at 9PM on BBC One.
