Jaz Is First To Be Fired In The Apprentice
Curse of going first sees ladies' team leader make a swift exit...
The Apprentice this year - finding herself on the end of Lord Sugar's famous finger-pointing at the end of the debut episode.
The 41-year-old company director, who described herself as "half-machine" in the introductions, had volunteered to lead the girls' team in their efforts to sell a container load of goods.
But after they lost by £60 to the boys - who notched up sales of £1,167.90, compared to the ladies' £1,109.30 - she found herself carrying the can for their failure.
Lord Sugar was sceptical of her decision to bring logistical planner Uzma Yakoob back into the boardroom - and immediately gave her a pass to the next episode.
But although he criticised Sophie Lau, the business tycoon told Jaz that she would be going down with the ship.
"Jaz, there was terrible mayhem going on, bad organisation, fatal mistakes made, and I do believe that your biggest mistake was jumping in too quickly," he told her.
"On that basis Jaz, you're fired."
Interviewed after her firing, she said: "If I had my time again, I'd love to say I wouldn't volunteer, but I know I would.
"I'm gutted to be fired before I've a chance to show how amazing I am, and I really wanted to go right through to the end of the process because my business plan is phenomenal."
