The Apprentice

The Apprentice: Non-Alcoholic Drinks / 20 Jan 2022 BBC One

Non-Alcoholic Drinks:

Lord Sugar and his candidates meet at Mercato Metrapolitano in Mayfair, a former church now offering artisan food and drink from around the world. Whetting the candidates’ appetite for this week’s task, the peer reveals they will be creating and branding a new non-alcoholic drink, before hosting a launch event where they will pitch and sell their product to leading retailers. One team plays it safe with flavours but struggles to replicate a key ingredient, while a fruity late addition in the other side’s drink isn’t to everyone’s taste. As usual, Karren Brady and Tim Campbell act as Lord Sugar’s eyes and ears on the ground.

The Apprentice sees fourteen candidates, competing against each other for a position at Lord Alan Sugar’s company. Each week the candidates take part in a task set by Lord Sugar. Each team will have a Team Leader who managers that group for that task. The team that performs the best will win a reward and avoid the boardroom. The losing team will be summoned to the boardroom where their team leader will be forced to pick two people in their team who we join them in the boardroom and a chance to be fired. After twelve weeks Lord Sugar will be left with his Apprentice, who will work for him at a salary of £100,000. Lord Sugar is very busy so he has Nick and Karen, who act as his eyes and ears, to inform him of what’s going on.
