The Apprentice’s Adam Corbally on Luisa Zissman: Even Samantha Brick would cringe

Former Apprentice candidate can’t believe Luisa’s made it into Lord Sugar’s final two and thinks she's made some bold statements about her looks…

As Luisa Zissman prepares to put her money where her mouth is and show Lord Sugar how her wholesale baking business would work, former The Apprentice candidate Adam Corbally thinks everyone’s forgetting how she’s got to the final.


“Luisa’s manipulated and maneaten her way to the final,” Corbally told, adding, “She’s obviously turned on this sweet and innocent act for the final week.

“She manipulated people to get herself to the final. She was very bitchy, very underhand and there was no reason to do it the way she’s done it,” Corbally adds.

While Lord Sugar debates whether to pump £250,000 into Luisa’s business plan or opt for Dr Leah Totton’s cosmetic surgery business, Corbally’s mind is already made up: “If Luisa wins, it’ll be an absolute tragedy.”

On comparing Luisa to rival Leah, Corbally thinks their business plans would have actually made more sense if they had put each other’s plans to Lord Sugar.

“You would think Luisa would have gone for the cosmetic idea as she’s a self-proclaimed ‘I’ve got fake hair, fake nails, fake boobs’ – I personally don’t see what that has to do with anything, I really don’t think it has anything to do with anyone’s business abilities.

“She seems to bang on about that, about being a good looking woman in business – it’s something even Samantha Brick would cringe at to be honest. I think it’s a very bold statement for someone who’s no Sharon Stone.” Corbally adds. 

And which of Lord Sugar’s rejected candidates would Corbally swap Luisa for?

“For me, I would have liked to have seen Myles Mordaunt in the final. I do think Francesca MacDuff-Varley was very good, but I do rate Dr Leah. I think she’ll win by a clear country mile.”
