Pellereau's weekly failures don't matter now, because he has some golden inventions and ideas that Lord Sugar and his team will be launching nationwide. Helen's pasty and cake shop never stood a chance. To celebrate the end of the series, Reality Bites is handing out some gongs for the best and worst moments from this year.
Edward 'Atta' Hunter was robbed from viewers far too soon. He wanted to roll with the punches and prove that he doesn't "fit the mould", but Shugs tired of his "semaphore" talk very quickly. The 'Next Stuart Baggs' didn't even make it past week one in the end. Probably for the best.
The Michael Sophocles Hall of Fame celebrates the mighty series four candidate who boasted of being a "good Jewish boy", before tragically failing to understand the concept of kosher meat. Melody Hossaini takes the Sophocles mantle this year. After proclaiming to have been taught by the Dalai Lama and Al Gore, Hossaini led her team into a Poundshop to flog wholesale goods worth £30. Oops.
The Apprentice never does much for Anglo-EU relations - who could possibly forget Herr Baggs marching around Germany? But Leon Doyle properly took the biscuit. Bumbling around Paris with his drawing of a teapot lamp, his default gripe on the task was 'I don't speak French'. Even Jim and his "petit pois" came across better.
There wasn't the usual boardroom fire this year, perhaps because it lacked a true plonker like a Baggs, Sophocles or Katie Hopkins. But 'Jedi' Jim did his best to bring some spice when he took a sniper to 'Bambi' Susan. Even Lord Sugar was left in hysterics as Jim dismantled his rivals, by describing Glenn with the ultimate backhanded compliment. "Susan, I think you are just marginally worse than Glenn." Different class.
A second gong for bumbling Leon Doyle. The episode one 'Team naming' exercise is always a highlight, but Leon's ego-inspired suggestion of Team Leontrepreneur made it extra special this year. His Cheshire Cat grin after he came up with the name hinted at some possible irony, but in general, he seemed far too smug about the idea.
Claude Littner deserves a nod for once again proving to be the ultimate curmudgeon in the interviews. The new weirdo interviewer who insisted on using a "magic imaginary lift" technique was quite memorable also. However, Margaret "you're a bit of an ass" Mountford reclaimed her rightful crown for another year, mainly thanks to her dressing down of a cliche-spouting Jim.
We had high hopes for Vince the Spiv from day one. He reminded us of our series four hero Raef with his debonair sock selection and fine tailored suits. However, we should have probably realised from as early as week one that he wasn't in it for the long haul. Vince wins the 'I'm With Stupid' T-shirt for his unbearable cringeworthy line: "Is that an orange?"
Nick once again steadied the Apprentice ship during a few early wobbles when the programme seemed to be lacking some of its usual sparkle. His finest hour? It had to be on the hotel purchasing task, where he revealed that he frequents the same establishments as foreign dignitaries. "Last time I was in this world-famous shop, I saw the King of Tonga," winced Hewer. "Let me tell you, the King of Tonga does not go around looking for bargains."
