Stuart 'The Brand' Baggs has claimed he wasn't left red-faced by his sensational sacking on 'The Apprentice' last night (15.12.10), but did concede his mouth tends to get him in trouble
Stuart 'The Brand' Baggs insists he isn't embarrassed about the way he came across on 'The Apprentice'.
The 22-year-old telecoms entrepreneur - who was sensationally sacked by Lord Alan Sugar last night (15.12.10) after it emerged most of his CV had been fabricated - admitted while his mouth "gets him in trouble", he doesn't regret the way he was portrayed on the BBC One show.
He said: "I wish I could take back some of the things that I said. My mouth gets me into trouble. But as you see in week ten, it gets me out of it. I gave such a fantastically good speech in the boardroom I got myself off the hook.
"I'm not embarrassed, it captures me aged 21. The difference in me since it was recorded has given me the ability to hide behind the sofa when watching it back - and gain some people skills."
The bolshie businessman - who was blasted by corporate lawyer Alan Watts in last night's show for forgoing ethics to further his career - explained his unusual boardroom style came about because he uses humour to cope with stress.
Stuart added to The Sun newspaper: "I cope with stressful situations by making jokes. People try and put me through some kind of corporate filter.
"They are expecting one thing and when it's not what they are expecting they think, 'Oh hang on, that's a bit unusual'."
