Sanjay Sood-Smith has revealed he'll "lose all faith" in 'The Apprentice' if is his nemesis on the show, Daniel Lassman, wins the £250,000 investment from Lord Alan Sugar
Sanjay Sood-Smith will "lose all faith" in 'The Apprentice' if Daniel Lassman wins.
The 27-year-old business hopeful was sent home - along with Katie Bulmer-Cooke - by Lord Alan Sugar in last night's (10.12.14) episode of the BBC One entrepreneurial show and has revealed he wouldn't mind seeing any of the remaining candidates win the £250,000 investment, except for his former roommate.
Quizzed on how he'd feel if the pub quiz company director won, he exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I'd probably lose all faith in the process. You've got people who are quite likeable but maybe not as strong as the others, like Solomon [Akhtar] maybe, then there are people who come across as really strong but maybe not as likeable, which might be Mark, but with Daniel I think he's neither likeable nor strong. So if he were to win, I'd find it very odd."
The former bank manager insists Daniel, 27 - who has been seen clashing with fellow candidate Mark Wright on a number of occasions - is even more intolerable in real life than he appears on the show.
He revealed: "I shared a room with Solomon and Daniel. Me and Solomon get on fantastically, he's like the little brother I never had, whereas Daniel, I know he comes across badly on screen but in reality, he's much, much worse than that."
Meanwhile, Sanjay and Katie have confessed that while their disappointed to have missed out on the final, they're relieved they don't have to be grilled by Lord Sugar's colleagues Claude Littner and Margaret Mountford in the interview stage next week.
Sanjay said: "I'm definitely going to enjoy watching the others squirm. With the interviews one of the key things is, I suppose, the business plan, so I actually think I dodged a bullet in a way in that I got fired based on my business plan before having to get ripped to shreds by Claude Littner."
Katie added: "I am massively disappointed because I really feel like it's an opportunity to take it into your own hands but on the other hand I'm slightly relieved because I've never had an interview before and perhaps that wasn't the best place to start!"
