A digital product consultant from Chelmsford is among the candidates battling for Lord Sugar’s investment when The Apprentice returns on Wednesday.
Ross Fretten describes himself as quite a polarising person in his audition video; some find him endearing but he thinks he brushes others up the wrong way because “I don’t take people or things very seriously, I just go about getting what I want quickly and have fun doing so – some people don’t appreciate that”.
The 29-year-old, whose job involves helping businesses launch and improve their digital products and services, adds his business plan is “pretty sick” if he says so himself.
Calling himself eccentric or a bit of a creep depending on your perspective, there’s nobody in history he compares himself to or looks up to. He just does what he wants and gets it done.
The passionate and driven Ross – who wishes more people would follow his habit of under promising and over delivering – says he’s tireless and ruthless in pursuing what he wants and succeeds; earning recognition for his ridiculous hard work, creative flair and being “a doer”.
The BBC One show returns at 9pm, October 4.
This year’s tasks reportedly include creating a range of burgers, branding and selling robots, planning corporate experiences and running a doggy day care centre.
