This seems like a much better idea. The odd part of The Apprentice was the idea that these super-entrepreneurial people would want to slot into a large organisation and leave their own projects behind.
I thought it would be interesting to look at the businesses that this year's candidates run, by doing some searches.
Surprisingly six of the remaining 12 don't have their own sites, and don't run their own businesses. For example Vincent Disneur is a Sales Executive for Tespest Technology, and Natasha Scribbins is a Senior International Manager at KOBALTT.
However six are self employed with their own online presence (Plus Helen Milligan has her own site). In alphabetical order:
