Apprentice viewers appeared to support Lord Alan Sugar’s decision on Thursday, as the 2022 final saw Harpreet Kaur confirmed as the winner.
Besides securing £250,000 for her business, Harpreet also secured a business partner from Lord Sugar as she headed to victory.
Harpreet’s dessert business plan won him over, meaning Kathryn Burn missed out on starting her matching pajamas business.
As a result, viewers took to Twitter to share their thoughts on whether the right candidate won.
Most seemed pleased with Harpreet and agreed with the outcome, while others backed Kathryn to win.
One fan tweeted: “Yes, Harpreet! This is by far the best contender in the process. A well-deserved winner…”
Another agreed: “Yesss! Congratulations Harpreet! A well-deserved winner (and let’s face it, the only sensible choice!) Plus, those desserts look YUM.”
The third added: “Most deserving winner I’ve ever seen. Harpreet has been banging it out of the ball park since day one! Well done woop woop.”
Meanwhile, another wrote: “Yes, Harpreet! So far this is the best candidate in the process. A well-deserved winner.”
Others, however, were supportive of Kathryn, with one commenting: “Nice to see Lord Alan Sugar went to the easy choice of another dessert shop. So many of them have made their way to the top of the line. such a huge profit. The show should be called The Business not @bbcapprentice Kathryn is the better business woman by far.”
A second said: “For what it’s worth, I think Kathryn won that,” and another tweeted: “Kathryn robbed.”
When he had to make a decision, Lord Sugar admitted it was a difficult one, but he chose Harpreet in the end.
“It’s been a very, very difficult situation for me… Harpreet I’m not sure if this business is scalable or if you’re trying to do too much,” said Lord Sugar. That’s what I’m worried about at the moment.
“Kathryn, I’m worried about its longevity, and its popularity, very hard, this is hard for me…”
He continued and shared about his decision: “A lot of the companies that I’ve invested in started from scratch, which is basically what Kathryn is suggesting, so ladies, I think I’m decided now…
“Harpreet, you will be my business partner.”
Speaking of his victory when the news broke, the candidate couldn’t believe it but said it was a “dream come true”.
Harpreet explains: “I can’t believe Lord Sugar has chosen me as his business partner!
“I dreamed about this moment, and it totally proves that if you work hard and you believe in yourself, dreams do come true.”
