* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation:
** Donald Trump - a powerful, confident businessman and adept entertainer, or just a guy who knows how to press everybody's buttons?
** In Season 2, Bradford initially reads Pamela as an overly aggressive ice queen, based entirely on her posture (hands on hips, nose in the air). But was she really trying to look intimidating, or perhaps secretly insecure about her weak chin and trying to hide it by keeping her head tilted up all the time to avoid the dreaded double chin? After all, it's impractical for [[StatuesqueStunner a woman as tall as her]] to have her head tilted back so far all the time.
** Bradford himself, confident businessman or KnowNothingKnowItAll? He got canned on the second episode.
** In Season 4, we had Toral Metha, [[InformedAttribute a successful businesswoman]] who repeatedly came across as a bumbling idiot. Unfavorable editing or just smart enough to hire smart people and be the figurehead at her company?
** Ivandka Trump, a feminist who cares about women's issues or an antifeminist trying to pander to what she thinks is the base?
** Omarossa, a WorthyOpponent turned close friend of Donald Trump, or just an annoying bitch?
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Pamela Day from season 2, many loved her [[TheLadette "one of the boys" personality]].



** Arnold himself, as even many haters admitted [[WeWantOurJerkBack the show isn't the same without Donald Trump]].



** Omarosa from the first regular and ''Celebrity Apprentice'' seasons. Barely tolerable bitch (and saboteur) in the former, raging egotist (and terrible project manager) in the latter.

** Omarosa from the first regular and ''Celebrity Apprentice'' seasons. Barely tolerable bitch (and saboteur) in the former, raging egotist (and terrible project manager) in the latter. For haters of Donald Trump, she was sort of rescued from the scrappy heap.

* TooDumbToLive: In episode 2 of Series 13, losing project manager Ross became the first person to stand up to Lord Sugar by telling him:
--> "I'm trying to actually explain. Preferably, trying not to be rude, but uninterrupted would be really helpful so I could get something across."
Some people, including former Apprentice winner [[Characters/TheApprenticeUKSeason11 Joseph]] and [[Characters/TheApprenticeUKSeason12 Alana]] thought that Ross was fortunate not to have been fired that week while others such as Aleksandra from the last series applauded him and many viewers even described him as "the sassiest apprentice candidate ever".

* DeaderThanDisco: The non-celebrity editions were firmly established as this by Season 10, which got some of the worst viewing figures in the history of NBC, and a lot of critics lashing out at how tasteless it was to broadcast such a show during a recession. Since then, all seasons after that have been celebrity editions.

Added DiffLines:

* GrowingTheBeard: While the main series never really needed to do this -- some would still argue that it did so in Series 3, with multi-firings now possible, increasing the tension in boardroom situations -- the early years of companion show ''You're Fired'', hosted by Adrian Chiles, were generally seen as bland schedule filler, which mostly served to showcase deleted scenes that nowadays would more likely be posted online. Chiles's replacement by Dara O'Briain, who reinvented the series into essentially being an ''Apprentice''-themed comedy panel show, is seen as where ''You're Fired'' really came into its own, with all the subsequent hosts coming from stand-up comedy backgrounds.

* BizarroEpisode: The Fast Food task from Series 7. It took place with only five candidates left, when the final five would usually move onto the interview stage. One team had only two members, extra wait staff and cooks were hired to help out the teams and Lord Sugar himself came to try out both restaurants, instead of leaving it to industry experts and only seeing the teams in the boardroom. Even the candidates seemed surprised that there was going to be another task.

There also wasn't a treat planned for the winning team, who were simply told that they were in the final and went back to the house. Even the candidates ''candidates'' seemed surprised that there was going to be another task.

** Despite his criticisms, Oliver from Series 12 found some praise off the show: Susan Calman described him as "adorable", JD remarked that "everyone had a soft spot" for him while Jessica remarked that he "was one of those people where as soon as you see his little face, you just smile.". Even Twitter enjoyed him.

* HilariousInHindsight: Michael Sophocles from Series 4 was a generally unpopular EliminationHoudini, who continually skirted elimination until he was finally eliminated with two weeks remaining. His girlfriend at the time happened to be one Katie Waissel, who later became a contestant on the 2010 series of ''TheXFactor'' -- where she proved to be a generally unpopular Elimination Houdini who continually skirted elimination until she was finally eliminated with two weeks to go.
