Jenny Garbis - who was fired from 'The Apprentice' last night (21.10.15) - has confessed she didn't see the show as a competition and doesn't think the investment of £250,000 is enough

Jenny Garbis didn't see 'The Apprentice' as a competition.

The 23-year-old graduate became the third candidate to be sent home by Lord Alan Sugar on last night's (21.10.15) episode of the show after failing to purchase two of the items specified in the task and she's now claimed she got on well with all of her fellow contestants.

Asked if she clashed with any of the other candidates, Jenny exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Not really because I didn't really see it as a competition in the sense that I'm against these people. I know that sounds ridiculous because it obviously is a competition and it's one of the biggest competitions in the UK viewership wise but actually I just didn't see it that way.

"I saw it as me, Lord Sugar, how am I going to get there. I don't think that's something I've done wrong at all, I think it's actually very admirable that I stuck to my morals and values and respected other entrepreneurs."

Jenny also admitted that while she would have loved to have worked with Lord Sugar, she's not too upset about missing out on the £250,000 investment up for grabs because a tech start up she's working on recently received £10 million in funding.

She explained: "What people don't really realise is that, actually, giving away 50 per cent for only a quarter of a million is quite a lot of your business to be giving away. So when we got our £10 million in funding from the US hedge fund ... All I'm going to say is you can get a lot more money for giving away a lot less equity.

"So I think that while it's an amazing opportunity and everything, it's not necessarily the worst thing that I didn't go into business with Lord Sugar but I think, for me, it was more about having his credentials and his passion for the renewable energy industry that I was interested in."

'The Apprentice' continues next Wednesday at 9pm on BBC One.
