Tom Pellereau ditches "nice guy" image to fight "tooth and nail" for Lord Sugar's investment

Tom Pellereau

Apprentice 2011 finalist Tom Pellereau says he's going to ditch his "nice guy" image and fight "tooth and nail" for Lord Sugar's £250,000 investment in tonight's final. Describing his business plan as "briliant", Tom also slams his rivals' efforts in a bid to win.

Tom says: "There’s no more Mr Nice Guy," adding: "I will be fighting tooth and nail for every single moment in that boardroom to become Lord Sugar’s business partner."

Tom has made the final of the show despite being on the winning team just three times in 11 tasks.

Speaking on tonight's final show, Tom continues: "My business plan is brilliant so I’m really beginning to think there is a possibility for me to win. That just spurs me on to try ever harder to make this happen. You don’t get to the final just by being a nice guy."


And with four business hopefuls fighting for a single investment, the knives are out.

"I’d be very impressed if Helen’s business plan is really good, given it’s her first one – she’ll get nailed," Tom blasts.

The 30-year-old inventor manages to convince Lord Sugar's aide Karren Brady to support him in the boardroom, she tells the boss: "Of all the candidates he’s the one who would most benefit from your involvement.

"He is an inventor, he has got ideas but he doesn’t have that cutting commercial edge which you could contribute."

The Apprentice 2011 final airs tonight at 9PM on BBC One.
