As announced today, The Apprentice is back

Candidates will be announced and shown at http://www.bbc.co.uk/apprentice/ on Tuesday 3rd May.

First show is on Tuesday 10th May, BBC1 at 9pm!

Just as a starting topic; I wonder if there will be any significant changes to the format this time around. I did hear though that this time the prize will be similar to that of the Junior Apprentice; i.e. £x to start a business rather than a job in one of Lord Sugar's companies.

Is everyone excited about the forthcoming series? Let the thread, and the show, commence

Yay It's weird, I was just trying to find out when it was coming back some time last week and couldn't find any info anywhere. Then I see the advert!

Mega excited, I hope there's another Stuart!

I think there's a double-header to start things off; one on the Tuesday and one on the Wednesday, so can't wait!

Another Stuart? Surely he can't come back for a re-appearance

Hope they do the Lego Apprentice videos on YouTube again; some of them were classic.

16 candidates do we think?

Beginning to sound like a BBC marketing rep now...

Candidate profiles now available to view!

http://www.bbc.co.uk/apprentice/seri...ndidates.shtml

16 candidates will fight it out from a week today!

Anyone got any early tips for people who may do well?

Having scanned the interviews I'm most looking forward to seeing Thomas Pellereau in action. Susan Ma is also likeable. The people using the buzz-words like "driven", "110%", "deliver" have already spent too long talking instead of doing and look like being crashing bores.

Can't wait!! The candidates look a lot more mature than in previous years...but I'm sure the first episode will show differently!

Those pictures are ridiculously airbrushed. None of the girls are attractive though :sad:

WTF is Frodo doing on the Apprentice as well? I thought he buggered off with the Elves?

They all look so much older than their actual ages. I hope it is just bad airbushing otherwise they have ahd really hard lives.

Also, the 'inventor' has obviously tried to make himself look like an 'inventor' he should be out early :facepalm2:

Yeah none of the girls this year are hot.....but Liz Locke last year was :sexface:
They also seem so serious so I doubt we're gonna get the next Baggs.

Yeah candidates look very different. I think the pictures are somewhat less airbrushed.
