Robert Goodwin has confessed he thought he'd got away with his decision not to put himself forward as project manager before he was sent home in a shock sacking on last night's (15.10.14) apprentice
Robert Goodwin thought he'd got "away with it" before his shock firing on 'The Apprentice' last night (15.10.14).
The 25-year-old marketing manager has admitted that despite going against Lord Alan Sugar's wishes by not putting himself forward as project manager on the wearable technology task, he thought he'd managed to avoid a sacking until he was sent home before anyone had even been back to the boardroom to discuss the failure of the group.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I thought it was a little bit unfair to be honest because I wasn't able to justify myself properly.
"Yeah, there was a little bit of me that thought, ooh, he's actually going to send me back to the house straight away because he said, 'Everyone's going to pick on you, so I'm going to make it easy for you'.
"And I thought, ooh brilliant I've got away with it, I'm going to go back to the house now, but no, 'You're gone'. So it was a bit of a shock but, you know, that's Lord Sugar for you - he doesn't take any bulls**t."
Meanwhile, project manager Scott McCulloch - who was also sent home by Lord Sugar last night (15.10.14) after an intense session in the boardroom - claims he still can't get his head around the business mogul's comments in the first episode.
Referring to the task in which he failed to sell enough hot dogs to beat the profit of the girls team, Scott said: "What I didn't understand was the fact that I was out making money and there were people in the other sub-team that actually hadn't made a single penny yet.
"I was kind of branded as the worst sales person so I didn't understand at all and still don't to this day."
