Roaring start for 'The Apprentice' at the Zoo
Friday 23 March 2012
The first episode of the new series of the hit BBC television show The Apprentice got off to a roaring start on Wednesday night as the candidates came to ZSL London Zoo.
Lord Sugar set the new candidates the task of selling products printed with their own designs at ZSL London Zoo and other famous London landmarks. The girls’ team travelled to the Zoo and approached visitors with their unique animal-printed children’s clothing in an attempt to make the most profit and avoid being fired from the show by the multi-millionaire business guru.
There was fighting talk among the candidates candidate Katie Wright who commented on her teammates’ sales technique, saying: ‘You don’t want to be behaving like animals in the zoo’.
The girls then ran into further trouble after leaving the Zoo as they headed away from the nearest shops only a few minutes’ walk away in Camden town. Avid viewers took to social media to comment on the candidates’ poor sense of direction as they proceeded to get lost in Regents Park.
Spot some of the Zoos own famous characters in the show including a Sumatran tiger, llamas, and the penguins in our number one visitor-rated exhibit, Penguin Beach.
