The Apprentice sees candidates battle it out to become Lord Alan Sugar’s next business partner [BBC]
The Apprentice sees a collection of eager candidates with a passion for business battle it out to become Lord Alan Sugar’s new apprentice.
The contestants go head-to-head each week with a collection of tasks, created to test their business minds, with one candidate being fired by the billionaire every week.
And while the public become engrossed in the latest series, they all have one question they need answered – how much do the contestants get paid to appear on the show?
The Evening Standard reported that The Apprentice contestants get paid around £2,000 to appear on the series.

However, this does not change depending on how long you appear on the show.
The money is mainly there for candidates to cover their bills while they’re away, such as their mortgage.
The winner, of course, is given a lot more from Lord Sugar, including £250,000 investment towards their own business idea, with the star of the show as a 50% owner.
In other The Apprentice news, it was recently revealed that some of the elements of the show are fake.
