New Apprentice Show
Move over, Lord Sugar - Here comes a new Apprenticeship Show
We're all familiar with those hopefuls vying for a position within Lord Sugar's business empire, or for an investment in their own business.
No doubt we've also enjoyed watching the uppity ones getting their comeuppance, either through their own actions (or inactions) ... or that famous pointing finger and "you're fired!" catchphrase.
However, there's a new twist on the Sugar saga, and it's starting tomorrow, July 24th at 8pm on Sky1.
Unlike “The Apprentice”, which is filmed in a variety of locations - from uber- posh establishments to corner cafes, "The Angel" is recorded in a studio setting, where fewer entrepreneurs compete at various tasks for a substantial slice of investment.
It's not as sizeable as Lord Sugar's quarter of a million, admittedly, but then again, we're spared having to sit through twelve weeks of disbelief, laughter, groaning and cringing to see who's going to walk off with a cheque for a hundred thousands pounds at the end of each episode of “The Angel”.
And who is this mysterious Angel?
Billionaire founder of Phones 4U, John Caudwell, puts five budding entrepreneurs through a series of tests to ascertain their drive, ambition, resilience, passion, leadership and commercial intelligence.
At the end of each round, the worst-performing competitor receives a grilling from Caudwell before being sent of their way, until only the winner remains.
Much of his hiring-and-firing decisions will be based on the candidate’s personality, because when the week's winner is revealed, it's then - and only then - that Caudwell discovers the business idea he's invested in.
It could make for interesting viewing.
