They may not be able to think strategically, win pitches, or calculate orders, but this year The Apprentice contestants get to enjoy the life of luxury - until they get fired, that is
Can you believe this year’s Apprentice contestants? Not only are the girls squabbling and fighting at every given opportunity, but the boys are just bulldozing their way through the show, combining dreadful sales pitches with misguided over-confidence.
Ok, ok, so that’s just another season of The Apprentice, right? Wrong.
This year the back-stabbing contestants are living in the most expensive home ever featured on the show – a five-storey Queen Anne townhouse in London’s Lincoln Inn Fields.
According to property website Zoopla.co.uk, the plush pad is worth an eye-watering £9.7 million.
The house, which is a few doors down from the famous John Soames Museum, is a stone’s throw away from the Inns of Court and many of London’s top law firms.
Viewers of the BBC 1 reality show will notice the huge glass staircase and internal courtyard, which make the Grade II-listed home feel ultra luxurious and contemporary.
Aside from the daily challenges and boardroom arguments, the show has always featured a swanky property where the candidates live during the course of the series.
Last year’s crop of apprentices lived in a beautiful white stucco-fronted period building near Hyde Park.
The house, located on Porchester Terrace in the Bayswater area of London, features eight bedrooms and six bathrooms and is worth £8 million.
In 2011, the contestants stayed at the home of Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins in East Sheen, South
The opera singer’s home, located near Richmond Park, has a galleried hallway, four reception rooms, eight double bedrooms
and six bathrooms and has an estimated value of £5.2 million. It was reported that Ms Jenkins recieved £50,000 in ‘rent’ when the show was filmed.
Phew! With this list of illustrious properties, we can’t wait to see what pad they feature on the show next year.
And to think – when they hit the boardroom, we actually feel sorry for them!
