"Virdi seems to have more lives than a cat."

Some viewers claimed that Virdi Singh Mazaria should have been fired in the latest episode of The Apprentice.

In the challenge aired on February 29, 2024, Lord Alan Sugar asked the candidates to create a new Formula E team.

This included producing a brand, hosting a launch event and securing sponsorship for the vehicles.

Virdi was in Team Supreme, led by Project Manager Dr Paul Midha.

The team envisioned a car centred on air pollution. Virdi was placed in charge of branding and producing the video advert.

However, his orange logo did not go down well with Paul, which led the latter to create a mostly orange vehicle for the sake of continuity.

Expressing his disappointment with the logo, Paul said:

“The logo doesn’t communicate at all what the brand ethos was.”

Furthermore, discussing Virdi’s handling of the advert, Lord Sugar’s aide Tim Campbell said:

“Virdi is so focused on creating a Spielberg masterpiece that he’s missing the point of this exercise.”

Despite the hiccups, Team Supreme managed to secure initial sponsors of £15 million – five million more than the other team.

However, problems came during the pitch to the additional companies, which saw Onyeka Nweze stumble.

At the end of the challenge, it was revealed that Team Supreme had secured total sponsorships of £21.5 million.

On the other hand, the rival team achieved a winning total of £38.7 million.

Virdi Singh Mazaria had been on the losing team for every task so far.

Addressing the music producer, Lord Sugar said:

“I think you have spent more time in the loser’s cafe than you have done in this boardroom.”

Project Manager Paul brought Onyeka and Virdi back into the final boardroom.

Defending himself, Virdi said: “Yes, there were problems with the branding, but the ethos wasn’t really portrayed.”

Lord Sugar later said: “Virdi, you are a very nice chap. But your input into this task was pretty bad.”

Ultimately though, Onyeka was dismissed from the process due to delivering a bad pitch and her failure to communicate the ethos of the vehicle effectively.

This decision angered some viewers as they felt that Virdi should have been eliminated.

One said: “Wrong decision on #TheApprentice this week.

“Yes, Onyeka stumbled but not one other person was shown to explain the ethos well.

“And Virdi seems to have more lives than a cat.”

Another fumed: “I’ve actually had enough, Virdi is actually such an idiot.

“This guy can’t do anything right and he has the easiest jobs to do every week, yet he still f***s it up.”

“Fire him, man. #TheApprentice.”

Before The Apprentice aired, Virdi spoke about his business achievements. He said:

“One of my most notable business achievements was having the privilege to produce a track for Sidhu Moose Wala, a prominent figure in the Punjabi music scene.

“This accomplishment is paralleled by another significant success in my career – to DJ worldwide from the age of 18.

“Today, I take pride in having showcased my DJ-ing skills in seven countries.”
