THE Apprentice is back for another season and another batch of candidates are ready to do battle in the boardroom.
One of the people who was fighting for Lord Sugar’s investment was Frank Brooks. Here’s his story.
Who is Frank Brooks?
Frank Brooks is a 27-year-old senior marketing manager.
The London native describes himself as a trendsetter who like to push boundaries with his sense of humour.
He says he often uses his charisma and charm to negotiate and build his group’s morale.
Frank also admits that he plays people off against each other to get what he wants sometimes.
The manager was also one of this year’s The Apprentice candidates that worked to tackle Lord Sugar’s challenges.
Who is on the show’s board with Lord Sugar?
Lord Sugar needs “eyes and ears” on the ground during each week’s tasks.
He used to be assisted by Nick Hewer and uber-shrewd Margaret Mountford.
But after legal aid Margaret left in 2009, West Ham CEO Karren Brady took over the role.
Then, in 2014, PR guru Nick left The Apprentice, and Claude Littner stepped in to replace him after years acting as one of the official interviewers during the CV round.
This year, Karren and Claude will both return to the show to spot who’s not pulling their weight during the tasks.

When is The Apprentice on BBC One?
The Apprentice is a hit BBC reality show, now going into its 14th series, featuring hour-long episodes.
Each series of the programme aims to find a new apprentice for billionaire business mogul and Amstrad founder Lord Alan Sugar, who’s worth £1.4bn.
It aims to recreate the toughest of business environments and tasks for its set of contestants, but it is often very funny due to the incompetence and arrogance of the competitors.
It launched on BBC One on Wednesday, October 3 at 9pm and continues at the same time each week for 12 weeks.
