The two finalists are challenged to stage a show at London's Tower Bridge, a task which will test their skills in creativity, marketing, organisation and leadership. Both contenders must manage a team of former contestants, who return to `help out', before the winner is announced. The programme then shifts to the You're Hired studio, where Adrian Chiles gets the lowdown from the entrepreneurs, friends and family as well as Alan Sugar himself.
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 Â£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.
