The events agency owner also blasted the programme as "crap"
'Apprentice' candidate Selina Waterman-Smith has branded the show a "fix".
The 31-year-old events agency owner hit out at the programme in a series of tweets - which have since been deleted - claiming finalists are picked at the beginning of the programme and blasting the show as "crap".
According to The Sun newspaper, Selina wrote on Twitter: "The finalists are picked from the start, the whole show is fixed and set up."
Selina is also said to have branded producers "dreadful" and blasted fellow contestant Charleine Wain - who she allegedly shoved during filming, earning her a verbal warning - a "scumbag".
But the BBC "strongly refutes" the fix claims and insists Lord Sugar decides who the finalists will be in the penultimate episode of the series.
A spokeswoman for the programme told the publication: "It is in no way 'fixed' and we strongly refute any insinuation to the contrary. The final two candidates are decided on by Lord Sugar in the boardroom at the end of episode 11."
Selina also branded the show "crap" and "lame".
She wrote: "Actually, I pity a show that's so crap it has to discuss anything non-business related about its candidates. Shameful, poor taste & lame."
This comes after it was revealed in October that Selina had been given a verbal warning for an altercation with Charleine during the show's third episode.
A spokesperson said at the time: "The incident, which resulted in Selina being given a verbal warning, was dealt with quickly and professionally. Both women decided to stay in the process after discussions with the production team.
"We take our duty of care to the candidates very seriously and strongly refute any allegations to the contrary."
