The Apprentice 2012: Top Ten Moments
Share This Article:
It’s that time of year again: this year’s series of The Apprentice is now over, with the part-time wrestler that shares a name with everyone’s favourite Puerto Rican superstar (that’s Ricky Martin, of course) being crowned the winner. 2012 may have been one of the best years yet for Apprentice fans, featuring an array of characters that may easily take Stuart Baggs’ title as the most memorable contestant of all time. Now, all that is left to do is to take that annual journey down memory lane and recap our favourite moments of this year’s series – a tough task, given the weekly hilarity provided by both the challenges and the contestants. So, see if you agree with our top ten moments of The Apprentice 2012: Team Sterling’s Cheesy Wine Ad. Cheese is usually a perfect accompaniment for a good wine, but the outcome of Team Sterling’s efforts in week nine really took the biscuit. They created a promotional video for a new English sparkling wine but, despite their motto of ‘Less fizz, more sparkle!’, their advert really fell flat with Lord Sugar, who unfavourably likened it to a Carry On film – though for someone who looks so much like Sid James, you’d think he would have approved. Adam and Tom ‘Research’ English Sparkling Wine. Adam and Tom were part of the winning team in Week nine, their success perhaps being down to their thorough research and development process. The pair went off on a very merry trip to a wine tasting, from which wine expert Tom emerged with a decidedly clear vision in mind for the task ahead: ‘We’ve really got to grips with the English wine sparkling, sorry…English wine, sparkling…?’ Maria O Connor’s Penchant for Purple. She may have only lasted until week two, but Maria’s love for liberally-applied bright purple eyeshadow was on our lips for the rest of the series! To be fair, she did cleverly manage to find a blouse in the exact same shade, quite a feat outside of 1982.
