On The Apprentice Season 15 Episode 1 – “South Africa”, 15 years on from his first ever boardroom, Lord Sugar kicks off the new series with a task like no other. Under the watchful eyes of Baroness Karren Brady and Claude Littner, the 16 candidates are sent 6,000 miles from home, to the city of Cape Town in South Africa.
Voted the best city in the world to visit, the candidates will have the opportunity to capitalise on the booming tourism market as they set up their own safari and vineyard tours.
One team’s brash approach to ticket sales causes commotion, while on the other team premium prices prove problematic.
With refunds on the horizon, both teams put on their tours. Lost customers send one team’s tour into turmoil, and on the other team big promises leads to bigger problems. Back in the boardroom, there is no time for jet lag as Lord Sugar is on the prowl for explanations. One candidate will become the first to be told, ‘You’re fired!’. You can watch the full episode below.
