Liz Locke to win The Apprentice?
Dara O Briain - host of 'The Apprentice' spin-off show 'You're Fired!' has tipped Liz Locke to be crowned winner of Lord Alan Sugar's business brain search
Dara O Briain has tipped Liz Locke to win this year's 'The Apprentice'.
The 'You're Fired!' host revealed he thinks the 24-year-old investment banker is "very smart", and stands the best chance of being hired by multi-millionaire businessman Lord Alan Sugar as his apprentice.
He explained: "I'd have to plump for Liz. She's clearly very smart, a great saleswoman and crucially has that knack of talking herself up without making it too obvious. That's a hard trick to pull off.
"Although I haven't yet been correct in guessing who he's going to fire when it comes down to the final three in the boardroom. Ultimately we're just eavesdropping on his selection procedure. It's very difficult to second guess what he's thinking."
The Irish TV presenter admitted he sees his role on the show's spin-off series 'You're Fired!' as a "protector" of the sacked candidates.
Dara told Radio Times magazine: "I suppose I am more protector than interrogator. You have to remember that these people haven't done anything really bad. They haven't become a despicable person. They've just had an argument about how best to sell muffins.
"So none of them deserve to be booed. That would be wrong and give me no pleasure at all."
