Dillon St. Paul, a fashion magazine art director, has some interesting things to say about male make-up! 

He says: "Sometimes batting the eyelashes can get you a lot in business. Hence, the mascara comes in handy – so they can see those lashes."

Frances Bishop is just 25 but she already owns a successful children's clothing company. 

She says: "I’m a pocket rocket. I’m quite fiery and live by the rule ‘kill them with kindness’."

29-year-old owner of the Novelty Gift Company, Courtney Wood (pictured below), believes his cut throat tactics will help him reach the top. 

He says: "How would I describe myself in one sentence? I'll give you one word: awesome."

JD O’Brien, a 37-year-old business owner believes he can make the best of any situation

He says: "I won’t suffer fools. I will get upset by other candidates who don’t know their arse from their elbow."

Derbyshire-born fashion entrepreneur Jessica Cunningham thinks her success is down to a positive attitude and analysing her competition. 

She says:  "A motto I live by is: there is no competition if you're already winning."

IT consultant and business owner Karthik Nagesan has some interesting words about standing out from the crowd! 

He says: "If I wanted to be like everyone else, I’d have waxed my monobrow."

36-year-old Mukai Noiri is a fashion digital marketing manager, but he believes it is his charm that will see him beat off the competition. 

He says: "I feel sorry for Lord Sugar because previous applicants have been weak."

Sales manager Samuel Boating believes he's the perfect package and will have the most innovative ideas. 

He says: "My creativity, my passion, my charm, and my likeability all roll into one, creating one perfect guy."
