Ben Clarke

Ben Clarke is a trainee stockbroker and a candidate in series five. He was fired in week nine after incessant whining about his scholarship to the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst despite the divulging from Margaret Mountford in week six that he never attended it to the point of Lord Alan Sugar yelling "Don't start banging on about bloody Sandhurst again. I was in the Jewish Lad's Brigade, Stamford Hill Division, but it didn't make me sell computers when I got older! I've had this Sandhurst group in here before and one of them couldn't cook a sausage on a baked bean can so that does not mean anything to me.[1][2][note 1]", a reference to Paul Callaghan from series four, whose qualifications from the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst failed to save his bacon and also a quote that has since considerably interested the internet and went on to win "Quote of the Week" in The Apprentice: You're Fired!. This would not be the first time he had been fired, though, as his participation in the series had gone to his head and his boss fired him as he intended to take time off work[3]. He is also famous for his quote "making money is better than sex[4]".

He has since gone on to knock Junior Apprentice candidate Hannah Cherry[5].

NotesEdit

  1. Please note that there is ambiguity as to the genuinity of this quote, as two different sources divulge two different orders of the quote; source one cites it as "I was in the Jewish Lad's Brigade, Stamford Hill Division, but it didn't make me sell computers when I got older! I've had this Sandhurst group in here before and one of them couldn't cook a sausage on a baked bean can so that does not mean anything to me." and source two cite it as "I've had this Sandhurst group in here before and one of them couldn't cook a sausage on a baked bean can so that does not mean anything to me. I was in the Jewish Lad's Brigade, Stamford Hill Division, but it didn't make me sell computers when I got older!".(1/2)
