One of the teams on The Apprentice tried to sell a salad for €12

Needless to say, it didn’t work out.

THE NEW SERIES of The Apprentice started last night – and it had everything an opening episode needed.

Ridiculous boasts from candidates? Check. A task that sees all the contestants needing to cook? Check. A team that makes absolutely no profit? Oh yes.

The CVs were at their normal, modest level too

All the candidates fell for the same traps as always

One of the team names was, eh, original

Their task this week was to prepare some lunch meals to sell to public – and part of them had to have fish. So fish fingers were the order of the day

The other team went for fish cakes – and they also prepared a salad for sale at £9 (which works out at a lovely €12 to us)

Nobody could get over the £9 salad

Outrageous stuff

People weren’t standing for it

It was business genius though, surely?

Well, no actually. Team Connexus only made a profit of £1.87 for the whole task. Team Versatile made around £200. So perhaps the most expensive salad in history wasn’t the best move.

All that profit

Team leader April looked like she could be under pressure

But eventually it was Dan that had to go

His main claim to fame in the kitchen being

HE DID THE PANS. The pans needed doing!

Apprentice contestants, never change.
