This was Lizzie's first occasion on a losing team, though she did remain the only candidate not to have been brought back into the final boardroom so far.
Discount Buying[ edit ] Original Air date: Lizzie Project ManagerHarry M. Haya Project ManagerHarry H. Both teams are given ten hours to find ten items for ten waxworks.
The team that spends the least amount of money wins. Kinetic immediately left Tussauds, but initially suffered a lack of organization, with Haya not setting a specific list of who should buy what, which nearly resulted in the team buying two three-piece suits for Tussauds' Justin Bieber waxwork. However, the team generally negotiated well, with James in particular being a stand-out. One item which caused the team trouble was a Dashiki, which they spent the day fruitlessly searching for, with Harry H.
Despite being initially more organized, Atomic's sub-team, Zara and Hayley, wasted time travelling to and from Croydon in order to obtain a pocketwatch which they paid wildly over the odds for, under the mistaken belief that they were required to purchase one made of gold.

On top of that, Harry M. Lizzie also made a serious mistake by deciding not to negotiate any discount on a set of shoes near the end of the day, resulting in a massive fine, with Lord Sugar noting that they would have actually received less of a fine by just not buying the shoes.
Being makeovered, then photographed by a professional photographer. Lizzie, Hayley, and Zara. Hayley - For continuing to take a backseat on the tasks despite Lord Sugar warning her two weeks previously, and for raising concerns she was too quiet and polite. Lizzie seriously considered doing this, having implied prior to the boardroom that she didn't particularly want to bring back Hayley despite her weak performance, as the two were close friends, but Lord Sugar interceded and sent Harry M.
When Zara attempted to claim credit for the team's correct identification of the Dashiki through phoning a library, which was actually Harry M. This record was later equaled by three candidates on the adult show: Popcorn[ edit ] Original Air date: Project ManagerHarry M. James Project ManagerHaya and Zara. Lord Sugar arrived at the candidates' house and gave them their task; to produce a brand of popcorn, create two flavours and market them to Odeon Cinemasthe Jet2. The team with the most order of units win.
He then informed the candidates that only two people would advance to the final, meaning that the entire losing team would be fired, along with one person from the winning team.
After one last team reshuffle, James became the leader of Kinetic, and Harry H. Atomic secured 90, orders from all three retailers, but although Kinetic only received orders from two retailers, they won withorders.

Kinetic - by 25, orders. Lizzie - For agreeing with a brand that was considered more generic than both Harry M. Harry M- For having the worst track record in the show's history, for having no standout skills other than salesmanship. Haya, with regret - For staying in the background during the task. This task marked the highest number of candidates fired in one episode of any series of The Apprentice. It still holds this record to date, as this format was never used again. Haya's firing was also the first time a member of the winning team on "The Apprentice" was fired.
This loss made Harry M. James' victory in both this task and in Week 4 made him the only boy to manage a team successfully in either of the first two series not counting Arjun and Tim's joint victory in the final of Series 1and the first and ultimately only Young or Junior Apprentice candidate to hold a record as project manager.
By contrast, Harry H. There was no reward and no final boardroom as such in this episode; all of Atomic were dismissed upon the announcement of the task results, and the selection of the two finalists followed immediately afterwards.
Zara was easily selected as the first finalist, as neither James nor Haya felt that she deserved to be fired, and she was deemed to have been a very strong performer on almost every task. Though Lord Sugar indicated that he felt Haya had actually been more consistent overall than James, James's two victories as project manager ended up earning him the other finalists' spot. The Final[ edit ] Original Air date: The two remaining candidates were tasked with designing a new video game, with help from all the candidates from this series.
Both teams had many suggestions; in Atomic, Lewis came up a seaside-based game where they had to stop seagulls eating food, Hayley came up with a looking-after-horse game, and Lizzie came up with a puzzle game where they had to stare at a room for a few seconds and find what is missing. Atomic were originally going to go for the puzzle game, but James came up with an office-based game, and despite the market research finding that more people would play the puzzle game, James decided to stick with the office game, calling it "Crazy Cabinet".
In Kinetic, the team decided to do a game with an animal in it. Mahamad wanted a zombie game, but the rest of the team disagreed. Haya came up with the character of a pig since she was a vegetarianwhich the rest of the team agreed.

Along with the pig, they created an evil butcher, calling their game "Piggy Panic". The next day, the teams launched their viral ads in front of Lord Sugar and an audience of gaming experts. Both teams gave both good viral ads and presentations and the experts were impressed. But September brought plenty of other problems besides Johnson's occasionally tied tongue. National polls, as they always do, began switching their topline results from "registered voters" to "likely voters," thus lowering the results for third-party candidates and making any bad polling trends look worse.
The New York Times published an article on September 15 about the Clinton campaign's panic over millennial defections to third-party candidates, and then the nation's comedy newscasts and op-ed pages erupted in a spasm of anti-Johnson content. The Debate Gambit The biggest blow to the Libertarian Party's chances came on September 16, when the Commission on Presidential Debates, the nonprofit launched in and still managed by representatives of the Democratic and Republican parties to gatekeep presidential discourse, announced that the Libertarians failed to meet the 15 percent polling threshold to qualify for the first presidential and only vice presidential debate.
Johnson blowing a kiss to Trump, CNN screen capture. Making those debates had been the campaign's singular goal since even before the Libertarian National Convention. One was dismissed in August but is in the appeals process. The other is scheduled to have first hearings on motions for summary judgment in January.

Weld spoke almost threateningly about the technically nonpartisan body jeopardizing its nonprofit status; Johnson tried pleading for a one-time relaxation of its standards. In late August, the candidate said on CNN that it would be "game over" should these efforts fall short, a prediction that more or less came true.
Even though strong majorities in three national polls favored third-party inclusion in the debates, and even though some Libertarians are bullish about the prospects of legal action, nothing happened in time to matter for Still, there were moments when even 15 percent looked tantalizingly possible. Once it became obvious that he wouldn't make it into the debates, multiple sources with the campaign say, the money spigot pretty much turned off.
Asked if he was disappointed that more money didn't flow in, Johnson says, "No, I'm pretty satisfied," then emphasizes that the L. Johnson "shouldn't have gone to Liberty University and talked about abortion. Utah, home base of campaign manager Nielson and campaign spokesman Joe Hunter, was one of a small set of Mountain West states the campaign thought it could excel in.
McMullin, a Provo native and Mormon, ended up carrying Nielson suggests that the Mormon Church's official objection to legalized pot, which Johnson fervently supports, was the prime killer of the L.
House of Representatives in Wisconsin this November and received an impressive 11 percent in a three-way race against a Democrat and an independent, with no Republican.
Next election cycle, such money can be plowed into actual campaigns instead of time-consuming and expensive petition drives. McMullin's one-state strategy did lead to those two third-place finishes, but the other nine results came in at under 2 percent.
Johnson's national focus got him bronze medals in 47 states plus Washington, D. Johnson's other fourth-place finish came in Vermont, where write-in votes propelled Bernie Sanders into third. The trick for the party going forward is to make those relationships more permanent. Jacqueline Passey Mason, who has been involved in the L. The campaign "provided an incredible learning experience," says Indiana Libertarian Mark Rutherford, who has decades of experience in the party.
But the great thing for the party is that even people with negative experience now have experience working on a real campaign with real money, and that's going to be great. Chair Jay North says that in alone, state party registration distinct from dues-paying membership grew from around 33, to 40, which he credits mostly to growing disgust with the Democrats and Republicans.
A similar dynamic was at play among millennials, says Jason Weinman, who ran Youth for Johnson. Younger voters have been attracted to the L. But new blood exacerbates old conflicts, such as the party's foundational tension between philosophical purity and political success. If we can stop being so off-putting, we have a great opportunity to grow dramatically" while maintaining the L. I don't consider us to be a centrist party.
And many of the campaign's most influential supporters consciously reached outside the usual libertarian box to bring in converts unfamiliar with the word. Kibbe's PAC created an enormously successful online video, starring "Dead Abe Lincoln," aimed at linking voters scared of Clinton with those scared of Trump so that they could both vote for Johnson without fear.
AlternativePAC "very specifically did not go after the low-hanging fruit, not after self-identifying libertarians," Kibbe says. Activists fighting over purity, he warns, "really don't want the L. The votes for president are the most coveted prize for any political party. Johnson said repeatedly that he's done running for office.
Petersen definitely has his toe in the water for Many activists are fond of Larry Sharpe, an African-American corporate consultant and a close runner-up to Weld for the vice presidential nomination, who stressed the attractiveness of libertarianism to traditionally disadvantaged communities.
I'm not the typical candidate — if bookies did put a bet on it then I'd probably be a million to one. I'm just a normal person from a normal background with normal parents. We go camping for our holidays and don't go on luxury flights away and things.
So it's quite strange to have the opportunity that I've been given. What was the secret to success? I think the secret is I never went in claiming I was going to win. I never went in expecting to win the money and never really played a game either.
It's all my personality. How tense was that final boardroom? The final boardroom was very tense and I'm definitely glad I was sat there with Lucy. I was happy to come second to Lucy if I had to — she's a lovely girl.

To be honest, it was tough but friendly. How tough was it working alongside Lucy in the Final knowing that you're also competing against each other at the same time? I found it quite easy to work with Lucy — we get on quite well as personalities. After living together we were kind of like sisters and we'd snap at each other but it was over and done with after five minutes. Like you argue over a hairdryer! You might need a hairdryer if you there are any spare cans of Strexy lying around… Yeah, definitely!
The Strexy task was definitely entertaining! Can you bear to hear the word 'tacky' again after that task?
Well, my nickname is now Ashleigh 'Tacky'-Exley - that's what everyone calls me! I'll never use that word again. I think I heard it 30 times in the space of an hour!
The Release brand you created was extremely impressive. Are you keen to take it forward beyond the show? It's definitely something that I'm wanting to do for my local people.
