Jaz ”half-machine” Ampaw-Farr is first Apprentice candidate to be fired

The 41-year-old literary and education company director became the first casualty of the boardroom in last night's episode

Jaz Ampaw-Farr became the first contestant to leave The Apprentice last night.


The 41-year-old literacy and education company director entered the competition brimming with confidence, claiming “I’m half machine. I can process things at a speed that is out of this world”, but her tough words weren’t enough to save her from Lord Sugar’s firing finger.

Jaz volunteered to be project manager of the girls’ team in last night’s opening episode for a task which saw the candidates try to flog loo roll, leather jackets and bottled water in central London. And after coming into the boardroom with just £58 less profit than the boys, Jaz’s fate was sealed and she became the first person to be sent home.

The ninth series of The Apprentice introduced 16 new wannabee business moguls all trying to convince the formidable Lord Sugar they should be his new partner in a £250,000 business start-up.


The second episode is tonight at 9:00pm on BBC1. Tune in to find out who’ll be next to bite the dust…
