In the firing line... will Bucks’ own Aleksandra survive another week?
YOU’VE probably heard the new series of The Apprentice is back on our screens and that one of the 18 candidates is a resident of Chesham Bois.
Mother of three and communications consultant Aleksandra King was tempted to Bucks from North London by our great schools, green pastures and commuter links into the city.
When we spoke to her before the show aired, she said: “Being an analyst, I literally had spreadsheets of commuter towns and villages with stats on crime, league tables and just about anything you can think of.
“After the analysis a little gem called Amersham popped up as the winner and we really enjoy living here.”
Aleksandra caused a bit of a stir before she even made it on to our television screens after snippets from her audition video were released online and she revealed that she spoke cat!
In the two tasks so far Aleksandra hasn’t had to use her feline linguistic skills, however she has had to model jeans and flog antiques while boasting “The sheer energy that I am going to bring is going to mimic that of a nuclear explosion.”
Unfortunately Aleksandra and the girls’ team Nebula lost the first task and another member of Nebula was fired in last week’s extraordinary episode where both teams failed.
This week’s task is to do with selling candy, and Aleksandra is going to be project manager as the teams are being mixed up.
Whilst she’s not made a huge impact on the process she has, rather more importantly, not embarrassed herself too much either. Oh except unashamedly rocking out to Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off.
She means business: Aleksandra King hopes to impress Lord Sugar
Who’s hired?: Which of this year’s cohorts will become Lord Sugar’s business partner?
