The Apprentice 2013 series was for us a classic and perhaps our favourite series since the show started about 9 years ago, and it is all thanks to the interesting mix of contestant that took part in the series.
Our favourite by a long way was the gorgeous Luisa Zissiman. She not only entertained us on screen but the revelations about her past in the media were perhaps even more interesting than the person we saw on screen. For this reason alone we wanted her to win. However, making it to the final and finishing in second place is a great achievement for the 25-year-old business woman.
We loved the way she communicated with the other contestants and with Lord Sugar and his team. These are some of our favourite and most memorable quotes by Baker’s Toolkit entrepreneur and about her:
Luisa unimpressed with Jason Leech’s team management skills
“I don’t know how he goes about his everyday life”
Luisa’s first rule of business
“Sometimes you have to do a bit of schmoozing, guys…”
Luisa describing herself
“I have the energy of a Duracell bunny, sex appeal of Jessica Rabbit, and a brain like Einstein.”
Luisa’s academic record does not impress Margaret Mountford
“The lady with a brain like Einstein – yet you got a C, D, and E in your AS levels”
Luisa’s advice for the boardroom
“When in doubt… smile and pout”
Luisa unimpressed with Francesca’s bland cooking
“There’s no pow in Oh My Pow!” There was also no seasoning, no flavour, no spiciness, no kick, no – OK. I think you get it…
