What Does The Apprentice Winner Recieve?
The candidate who can make it through 12 weeks of tasks, boardroom dressing-downs and scathing attacks from fellow contestants will receive a huge cash prize.
The sum of the money is £500,000 and comes straight out of Lord Alan Sugar’s pockets!
However, the half a million is not be spunked on new clothes and cars, it is fed into the company and business plan that the candidates propose in the final boardroom meeting.
The Apprentice 2017 Anomaly
Last year, Lord Al was feeling extra generous as he shocked viewers and announced that both finalists would win the cash prize.
Both Sarah Lynn and James White were crowned series 13 winners, meaning Sugz fronted £1 million like it was nothing.
Sarah Lynn has a confectionery business while James runs an IT recruitment company.

What’s in it for Alan Sugar?
Of course, there is bound to be something in it for a businessman like Alan Sugar.
In return for Al’s investment, the winners must go into a 50-50 partnership with the 71-year-old.
Not bad, eh?
Not only is Alan Sugar building his profile on one of the most-watched U.K reality TV shows but he is also guaranteed a 50-50 deal in a fast-growing company.
Investors on Dragons’ Den rarely see their deals result in more than a 40% share of any business!
