    The Apprentice is a business reality show, where candidates compete in two teams to perform the best during business-related tasks, set by Lord Alan Sugar. Each week, the teams must appoint a Project Manager to lead them for the duration of the task, overseen by a trusted aide to Lord Sugar. In seasons 1-5, these were Margaret and Nick. From season 6 onwards, Margaret was replaced by Karren Brady. The team that performs the best will receive a reward, whilst the losing team will be summoned back to the boardroom and interrogated over their failure. Their project manager will be forced to pick two team-mates to face a final encounter, one of whom will be fired. In the first six seasons, the overall goal was a position working for Lord Sugar, with a £100,000 salary; this changed to be a £250,000 investment to start up a business of the winner's choice, with Lord Sugar as a partner.moreless
