Junior Apprentice, Week Five is the fifth week of Junior Apprentice. This week, the candidates jet off to Amsterdam in Holland to find products to import to the United Kingdom. The set up remains very similar to week four; the teams are given six options, and choose between two.
Led by Kirsty Cleaver, Instinct chooses the VKB (cutlery and lights) and the bikes; but Revolution also went for the bikes, and did not give in, leaving Instinct with the VKB (cutlery and lights) and some pet products. It took not only the entire night to negotiate, but by the next day they were still deadlocked.
When it came to the pitching, however, Instinct was cut to bits by the retailers. When asked what to do with three dogs, it was replied that all three dogs would be put in there; the interviewers just replied that it would be "chaos".
Led by Arjun Rajyagor, Revolution was - in the words of Nick Hewer - "very rude" towards their pitchers. Revolution went for the interchangable cloth animals, and VKB (cutlery and bikes). It took not only the entire night to negotiate, but by the next day they were still deadlocked.
When it came to the pitching, however, Revolution did not go as well as smoothly as they would have liked. It was remarked by Karren Brady that "while Revolution think they did well, scrambling with a plastic bag is really unprofessional[note 1]". Arjun put this down to being asked difficult questions when interrogated in the boardroom.
