Nicholas de Lacey Brown vs. Alex Wotherspoon
Sir Alan Sugars’ search for his apprentice has begun. Already one week into the airing of the semi-reality show and the first dismissal has been made. The final decision was between Nicholas de Lacey Brown (a 24-year-old somewhat pompous self-proclaimed art-lover barrister), Raef Bjayou (a 27-year-old entrepreneur who has faced death in the face many times) and Alex Wotherspoon (a 24-year-old “obvious” football fan and regional sales manager). There were 6.4 million viewers, so am I right in thinking you all saw it or have conversed about it..? Whilst watching, a little light-bulb went on in my mind…
Sir Alan is looking for an apprentice with the job criterion of representing his firm and working with him. Am I correct? Leaving Raef out of the equation (because face it, he’s a sweetie) who would you honestly choose out of Mr. “ahh yes outstanding means over 85% actually” and Mr. “I expect people to obey instructions” and for what reasons?
Personally, if I was looking for a business associate, I would 100% go for Alex. Academically Nicholas clearly excelled, but perhaps his social awareness and general ability to gel with others was held back by his lack in… hotness? Let me know what your views are.
