Challenges

Week 1

  • Project Managers: Claire (Alpha) and Alex (Renaissance)
  • Task: Both teams were given a van containing £600 worth of seafood and a choice of London market locations from which to sell. The team that makes the most profit wins.
  • Result:
    • Alpha: Alpha had decided early in the day to set-up their seafood stand in Islington. The women had difficulty in identifing seafood and correctly pricing them, as customers bombarded their stand before they had even begun. Despite this, the team managed to sell large orders to groups of people, increasing their earnings. Alpha made a profit of £153.98.
    • Renaissance: The team wasted a lot of time deciding on their team name and leader, and didn't get started until just before midday. They also decided to set-up in Islington. Like Alpha, Renaissance struggled to identify seafood. Nicholas had priced the seafood incorrectly, making them much cheaper than what they were. The lobsters were selling for less than a quarter of the recommended retail price. The team lost potential money when a company decided to buy some seafood, for a low price. Renaissance made a profit of only £32.69.
  • Winner: Alpha, by £121.29.
  • Loser: Renaissance
    • Brought into the boardroom: Alex, Nicholas, and Raef
  • Fired: Nicholas, for incorrectly pricing the fish, poorly defending himself in the boardroom, and admitting that he was unable to get on with "less educated" candidates.

Week 2

  • Project Managers: Jenny (Alpha) and Raef (Renaissance)
  • Task: Both teams were given use of an industrial laundry for the night. The team that makes the most profit wins.
  • Result:The teams sourced business from a variety of customers including a hotel, a fishmonger and homeowners.
    • Alpha: The team had problems setting a reasonable price, attempting to charge the hotel £4,990 for £200 worth of washing, and the fishmonger £15 for £60 worth of washing. In addition, they were late getting started and hadn't finished by the end of the night. They suffered problems due to mix-ups with customers' clothing, including two lost items for which they were fined £50 in the boardroom. This was blamed on Shazia, who had the task of keeping track of items, but left early in an unsuccessful attempt to get hold of the steam irons at the house, which Renaissance had already removed. Alpha made a profit of only £195.55.
    • Renaissance: The team targeted large companies to service for. They made big earnings from the companies and finished their washing and pressing before the laundry had to close. No articles of clothing were lost, meaning no penalties, and the team made £328 exactly.
  • Winner: Renaissance, by £132.45.
  • Loser: Alpha
    • Brought into the boardroom: Jenny, Lucinda, and Shazia
  • Fired: Shazia, for leaving the laundry early and allowing items to get mixed up. Although Jenny made many major errors, Sir Alan did not want somebody messing up something easy such as handling clothing. The majority of the You're Fired studio audience disagreed with the decision.

Week 3

  • Project Managers: Sara (Alpha) and Ian (Renaissance)
  • Task: Both teams had to devise and run a themed food day in a pub with no previous history of serving food. The teams were given a list of wholesalers to use. The team that makes the most profit wins.
  • Result:
    • Alpha: Alpha chose a Bollywood theme. The team managed to arrange all their printing for free. They had to cancel their lunch service due to the food not being prepared properly, but their strategy of selling admission tickets for £5 that were redeemable against dinner, as well as their better purchasing decisions, meant that they were in profit before they had even served a meal. Alpha made a profit of £604.27.
    • Renaissance: Renaissance chose an Italian theme. But they ran out of time and had to resort to purchasing their supplies from Tesco, resulting in substantially increased food costs. They produced 200 flyers at £1 each. The team took more money, but because of cost overruns they made only £301.97.
  • Winner: Alpha, by £302.30.
    • Reward: Cooking lessons at the Eckington Manor Cookery School in Eckington, Worcestershire.
  • Loser: Renaissance
    • Brought into the boardroom: Ian, Kevin, and Simon
  • Fired: Ian, for his "disastrous performance" as project manager and for lying about Kevin's pep-talk to the team not taking place.
  • Notes: For the first time this season, Sir Alan chose the project managers. Late in the day, Kevin bought all of Renaissance outside the pub for a motivational talk. In the boardroom, Ian bizarrely attempted to deny that such a meeting ever took place, despite it being recorded on camera and Kevin and Simon insisting that the meeting did in fact happen.

Week 4

  • Project Managers: Helene (Alpha) and Simon (Renaissance)
  • Team Reshuffle: Kevin, Lee, and Raef move to Alpha. Claire, Jenny, and Sara move to Renaissance.
  • Task: Running a photography business in Bluewater shopping centre. The team that makes the most profit wins.
  • Result:
    • Alpha: Alpha hired a David Beckham lookalike. Communication issues between the shop floor and the production room caused lost orders for the team. Alpha had problems operating their computer, caused mostly by Helene assigning Lucinda to work the computer despite her lack of technical knowledge and then refusing to allow anyone else to swap in for Lucinda when it became clear she couldn't do the job and were unable to meet the orders. Alpha made a profit of £145.10.
    • Renaissance: Renaissance opted for a "glamour and beauty" theme. Like Alpha, communication issues caused lost orders, only they were hurt seriously. Simon clashed with his teammates about ideas, particularly him insisting to have people take pictures in public. Renaissance made a loss of £73.81.
  • Winner: Alpha, by £218.91.
    • Reward: Dinner aboard a luxury yacht, on trip to the Isle of Wight.
  • Loser: Renaissance
    • Brought into the boardroom: Alex, Claire, and Simon
  • Fired: Simon, with regret, for being out of his depth. The majority of the You're Fired studio audience disagreed with the decision, although Simon himself said that he deserved to be fired.
  • Notes: Claire was ordered out of the boardroom shortly before the firing, after constantly attacking Simon and refusing to admit any wrongdoing in the task. Sir Alan told her that she would be leader of Renaissance in the next task, and strongly implied that she would be fired if they did not win it.

Week 5

  • Project Managers: Lucinda (Alpha) and Claire (Renaissance)
  • Team Reshuffle: Kevin moves to Renaissance to even the teams at six candidates each.
  • Task: Both teams had to develop three new flavours of ice cream at farms that specialised in making ice creams, and then choose two to sell direct to the trade market in London. The team that makes the most profit wins.
  • Result:
    • Alpha: Alpha decided on "Avocado and Chili" and "Toffee Apple" flavoured ice creams after a focus group meeting. Their orders included those from a group of pubs and a those from a cinema chain that Renaissance had sold to first, but the manager decided to take Alpha's ice cream instead. However, Jennifer and Lindi decided to target ice cream shops that in fact made their own ice cream, believing that they could sell to them anyway, meaning that many of their scheduled sales appointments proved to be dead ends and resulted in no sales. Alpha made a profit of £1,273.64.
    • Renaissance: After arriving 30 minutes late to their focus group and finding nobody there, Renaissance's market research came from two drinkers at a local pub, who opted for "Very Berry" and "Cider and Elderflower" (nicknamed "Scrumplelicious") flavours. They struggled at first, even having a major deal broken because the cinema chain preferred Alpha's, but eventually secured a large order from a designer restaurant at the last minute. Renaissance made a profit £1,455.45.
  • Winner: Renaissance, by £181.81.
  • Loser: Alpha
    • Brought into the boardroom: Jennifer, Lindi, and Lucinda
  • Fired: Lindi, for her poor sales strategy, cancelling appointments, and promising exclusivity to potential buyers, which violated the task rules.
  • Notes: Sir Alan said in the boardroom that if Alpha had won the task, he would have disqualified them and handed victory to Renaissance due to Alpha's sales to the cinema and pub chains being done on an exclusive basis, as the whole point of the task was to open up new sales for the farmers, which would be limited by the exclusivity deals.

Week 6

  • Project Managers: Michael (Alpha) and Kevin (Renaissance)
  • Team Reshuffle: Michael joins Alpha.
  • Task: Create a new "occasion" for a range of greetings cards to pitch to prospective retailers, namely Clinton Cards, Tesco and the Celebrations Group. The team that makes the most sales wins.
  • Result:
    • Alpha: The team came up with the idea of a "National Singles' Day" to be held on February 13, and produced a range of cards intended as an alternative to Valentine's Day cards for single people. Alpha's first two pitches were relatively unsuccessful due to objections over the date, and so Michael chose to remove it from their final pitch, which was to the Celebrations Group. Celebrations ordered 19,500 cards, while Clinton Cards and Tesco ordered 1,500 each, for a total of 22,500 cards.
    • Renaissance: Jenny suggested an environmental card, and effectively forced it on the team by not doing any research for their other ideas. The retail buyers questioned whether environmentally conscious consumers would want to express their views by sending a card, and Kevin's aggressive pitching alienated Celebrations and in particular Clinton Cards, who accused him of "preaching" to them after he likened their unenthusiastic reception of the cards to the U.S. not doing enough to combat global warming. Kevin's pitch to Tesco was less aggressive and secured an order for 6,000 cards, but neither of the other two retailers ordered any at all.
  • Winner: Alpha, by 16,500 cards.
  • Loser: Renaissance
    • Brought into the boardroom: Claire, Kevin, and Sara
  • Fired: Kevin, for his mismanagement, poor sales pitching, and his decision not to bring Jenny into the boardroom.
  • Notes: Back at the house, Sara was the subject of a heated debate between several candidates over her perceived laziness. Lee was shown to heavily critisize Sara. Raef was the only one shown on screen to jump to her defence on this matter, although it has been said that Lucinda and to a lesser extent Claire, also defended her off-camera.

Week 7

  • Project Managers: Lee (Alpha) and Jennifer (Renaissance)
  • Team Reshuffle: Sara moved to Alpha, whilst Jennifer and Michael moved to Renaissance.
  • Task: Buy a set list of items in the marketplaces of Marrakesh, Morocco. The team that spends the least wins.
  • Result:
    • Alpha: Alpha had difficulty in finding items, particularly Lee, Lucinda, and Sara. Helene and Raef got the cow hide for an amazingly small amount. The Santos orange juicer was given to them second-handidly, but they bought it off the tourists for a fair price. Alpha collected all ten items without penalties, spending only £413.61.
    • Renaissance: Renaissance, not paying attention to the dossier, bought a white mosque alarm clock instead of a green one, and didn't realize their mistake until later. Alex, Claire, and Jennifer then found a green one. Jenny and Michael attempted to sabotage Alpha by offering a sports store a bribe if they would incorrectly string a tennis racket that Alpha were in the middle of purchasing; however the store's employees refused to accept the bribe. Renaissance spent £449.60, but penalties were given for purchasing unbranded tagines and a halal chicken instead of a kosher chicken. The £153.99 penalty brought their total amount to £603.59.
  • Winner: Alpha, by £35.99 without the penalties, and by £189.98 with the penalties.
  • Loser: Renaissance
    • Brought into the boardroom (first time): Alex, Claire, Jenny, Jennifer, and Michael
      • Fired: Jenny, for lying about the Kosher chicken fiasco in an effort to get Michael fired.
    • Brought into the boardroom (second time): Claire, Jennifer, and Michael
      • Fired: Jennifer, for failing to control the team in the task, for rushing to get to the marketplace, and for not paying attention to the dossier.
  • Notes: This episode marked the first occasion ever where the project manager did not have the option of choosing the two candidates who would also face Sir Alan in the final boardroom. After Jenny's firing, Alex was sent back to the house, as Sir Alan considered him not to have made any of the most serious mistakes in the task (although he had been responsible for purchasing the unbranded tagines), and a second and final boardroom session took place.

Week 8

  • Project managers: Lucinda (Alpha) and Helene (Renaissance)
  • Team reshuffle: Claire joins Alpha, Sara and Helene join Renaissance.
  • Task: Select and sell wedding dresses and accessories at a wedding exhibition at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham. The team that makes the most money wins.
  • Result:
    • Alpha: On Raef's recommendation, Lucinda chose to go for dresses by high-end designer Ian Stewart, and this secured them their accessory choice of bridal lingerie. Alpha sold three dresses for a total of £5,105 and £647.24 worth of lingerie, making overall sales of £5,752.99.
    • Renaissance: Despite Michael and Sara recommending the Ian Stewart dresses, Helene refused to consider them owing to their high price and instead went with a mid-range supplier that sold much cheaper dresses. They also wanted to sell the bridal lingerie, but lost out to Alpha and so instead went with wedding cakes, which had been Michael and Sara's first choice. Renaissance sold five dresses for a total of £1,925, but failed to sell any cakes, mainly due to Michael and Sara's highly aggressive sales technique.
  • Winner: Alpha
  • Reward: Luxury spa visit.
  • Brought into the boardroom: Helene, Michael, and Sara
  • Fired: Sara, for her argumentative manner towards everyone, her inability to listen to others, and her general lack of contribution to the tasks in previous weeks. A majority of the You're Fired! audience disagreed with this decision.
  • Notes: While Sir Alan told Helene that she lost the task right at the start by deciding to go for cheap dresses, he actually assured her that she would not be fired due to her good track record in previous tasks; this was removed from the transmitted episode, though. After Sara's firing, Sir Alan appeared to be on the verge of firing Michael also, however, he and Helene were sent back to the house.

Week 9

  • Project managers: Alex (Alpha) and Raef (Renaissance)
  • Team reshuffle: Raef and Claire are moved to Renaissance, and Alex is moved to Alpha.
  • Task: Create a new brand of tissues along with television and print advertisements, then present them to a panel of advertising executives. The team deemed to have created the best ad-campaign wins.
  • Result: Renaissance created a smart aesthetic design for their tissue box, branded "I ♥ my tissues". Michael and Raef were meticulous in directing their television advert, and hired weather forecaster Siân Lloyd to appear. Crucially however, in the editing suite their advert proved to be too long, and most of the material showing the product itself was removed in order to bring it down to the required length. In contrast, Alpha's efforts with both their tissue box design and advert were deemed relatively poor, and Lee was ill-prepared for their presentation. However, their brand name, "Atishu!", was praised, and their overall campaign was deemed to be attention-grabbing and gave a very clear message about the product. This secured their victory in the task.
  • Winner: Alpha
  • Reward: An after-hours shopping spree at Harvey Nichols (London).
  • Brought into the boardroom: Claire, Michael, and Raef.
  • Fired: Raef, for losing focus of the requirements of the task due to his artistic flair, and for editing out the close-in of the product in the commercial (Sir Alan said that he had concluded Raef, with all due respect, was nothing but 'hot air'). The majority of the You're Fired studio audience disagreed with the decision.
  • Notes: Siân Lloyd's involvement in Renaissance's advert was criticised for having little relevance to the product or the events in the advert, and also for the very brief duration of her appearance in the edited version. Lloyd herself admitted to the camera being unsure why she had been cast as a mother, considering she is single and has no children. Renaissance's brand name was also criticised by Sir Alan, who said he could not imagine anyone "loving their tissues".

Week 10

  • Project managers: Lee (Alpha) and Michael (Renaissance)
  • Task: To select and rent out a set of luxury sports cars. The team that make the most money, by rental, wins.
  • Result: The teams had a chance to review the available cars, before the project managers had to choose two for rental sale. Renaissance decided to choose the Ferrari and Spyker. Alpha chose the Aston Martin, and the risky and rare Pagani Zonda, with a price tag of £2,750 for just one day of rental. Claire and Helene had almost no difficulty attracting customers for the Spyker, but it was Claire who made the sales. Michael fruitlessly searched around for customers to rent the Ferrari, with one customer almost taking the offer. Alex and Lee struggled to find customers, but Lee eventually made deals to a few. Lucinda struggled as she wasn't good in sales. She asked Alex and Lee to help her, but they stuck with the Zonda. Lucinda tried to sell rental of the Aston, but mistook it for the Zonda, and sold nothing. At the square, Claire and Michael got a few more buyers, but for hours not days. Claire and Helene saw that Alex had booked one customer for a full-day on the Zonda. Lee helped Lucinda in the selling, and Lucinda finally made a sale. Renaissance made sales of £2,114, almost all of which was earned by Claire. Alpha made sales of £11,815, with Alex contributing £8,000, Lee £3,400, and Lucinda £65.
  • Winner: Alpha
  • Reward: Wine tasting at a Mayfair hotel.
  • Brought into the boardroom: Claire, Helene, and Michael
  • Fired: Michael, for his consistent attempts to take advantage of the other candidates, attempting to put the Ferrari for rent in place with few rich people, and a poor track record of appearing in the final boardroom four times in a row.
  • Notes: Six luxury sports cars were featured, namely the Koenigsegg CCX, Pagani Zonda S, Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, Spyker C8, Aston Martin V8 Vantage and Ferrari 360 Spider.

Week 11: Interviews - Semi Finals

  • Semi-Finalists: Alex, Claire, Helene, Lee, and Lucinda
  • Task: The five remaining candidates undergo a sequence of intense interviews by four of Sir Alan Sugar's business colleagues. The interviewers then report their impressions of the candidates back to Sir Alan to help him choose the finalists. The four interviewers were Paul Kemsley, a property developer; Claude Litner, Sir Alan’s former “global trouble-shooter”; Karren Brady, the managing director of Birmingham City Football Club; and Bordan Tkachuk, the chief executive of the computer and IT firm Viglen, one of Sir Alan’s companies.
  • Result: Alex continuously came under fire, with his CV being highlighted as boring. While he argued that this was because he was only 24 years old, both Karren and Paul insisted that this was not an excuse, stating that they had achieved more than him by his age. Claire was accused of being too talkative. Helene faced criticism for not having demonstrated any progression in work outside of her current company. Lee was caught off-guard when first asked to do a humorous impression by Paul, which backfired when he was told this demonstrated he did not seem to take the interview seriously. He was also reprimanded for exaggerating on his CV, lying about his length of time at university. Lucinda was praised for being intelligent, but criticised for being a "handful". The interviewers questioned her motives for wanting the job, and felt that her teamwork skills were weak.
  • Fired: Lucinda, with regret, as she was considered "too zany", and because there were doubts over how much she desired the job.
  • Notes: During the boardroom, Alex brought up the subject of Lucinda's lack of desire towards wanting the job, which may have led to Sir Alan's decision to fire her. Also, only one candidate was fired, despite the fact that Sir Alan had previously said that three people were going to get fired. This was because he felt that all of the four finalists were worthy of the job and wanted to put them through one last test to help him with his final decision. In the episode, Lucinda was not shown to be fired with regret. However, in the Why I Fired Them episode, she was.

Week 12: The Grand Finale

  • Finalists: Alex, Claire, Helene, and Lee
  • Task: Develop an original fragrance for men, and then market it at an industry event.[11]
  • Teams:
    • Renaissance: Alex and Helene with Jennifer, Kevin, and Raef
    • Alpha: Claire and Lee with Jenny, Michael, and Simon
  • Results:
    • Renaissance: The team struggled for name ideas, and it was eventually left to a product designer to suggest a bottle design, which eventually evolved into their brand, DUAL. While the design of the DUAL bottle was innovative, including a detachable smaller bottle, it was more expensive to produce and therefore not fitting the given retail price of £29.95. Despite the major error, the experts loved the smell of the fragrance, which smelled of caramel and chocolate, although it was also pointed out that it was a (seemingly accidental) copy of a fragrance that Helene normally wears, Angel.
    • Alpha: Alpha named their fragrance R0ULETTE, playing on associations with gambling and James Bond. They replaced the 'O' on the name with a '0', representing the 0 on a roulette wheel. R0ULETTE was criticised by both an industry representative and Sir Alan, as likely to be unpopular with women buyers due to the gambling connotation. The experts also stated the the fragrance was "retro 50", as in "boring". Sugar expressed that although Claire's question and answer skills were excellent, it does not help sell fragrances.
  • Winner: Alpha, Claire and Lee proceed to the final two.
  • Loser: Renaissance
    • Reason: Although Alpha's name and theme of R0ULETTE were unpopular with some women, Renaissance's budgetary problems caused by the DUAL bottle design were felt to be a more serious flaw, resulting in Alpha being once again named the winner of the task.
  • Fired: Alex and Helene, for losing the task. They had not taken costs of production into account when designing their bottle, which would cost more than it would retail for.
  • Runner-Up: Claire, Sir Alan complimented her on the improvement she had shown over the course of the series, but expressed doubts about whether he'd want to work with her in the long-term.
  • Hired: Lee, who was viewed by Sir Alan as "very resilient" and "very convincing". Sugar also was impressed that Lee improved his presenting skills by "100%".
