** Nick Hewer, especially as British panel game shows have started hiring him. He is one of the most popular guests on ''HaveIGotNewsForYou'' and managed to combine the almost incompatible qualities of wit and MagnificentBastard-like ability to fib on ''Series/WouldILieToYou.''

** While the other team in the Series 7 fast food task named their Mexican-themed restaurant "Caraca's" - initially thinking they were those shaky musical instruments called ''maracas''. Naming a Mexican restaurant after the capital of ''Venezuela'' was eventually called out by Lord Sugar in the boardroom.
** In the real world, it's generally a good idea to do research on the companny you're applying to before an interview. A number of candidates have gone into the interview rounds knowing little about Alan Sugar's companies, such as Paul from Series 2 and Joanna from Series 6.

** Another team in the previous season decided it'd be a great idea to take cheap, mass-produced cheddar cheese to a fine produce market in France. A country that has more variety of home grown cheeses than any other in the world. Even Nick Hewer, who normally leaves Sir Alan Sugar to conduct the boardroom tongue lashings, took the time to berate the team's blatant stupidity in the task post-mortem. To cap it all, they also tried to sell top-end pork sausages to a halal butcher in the middle of the day during Ramadan. The opposing team also fouled up by trying sell tea, which is ''literally'' fifty times less popular than coffee in France, but got away with it because it wasn't their main item.

Added DiffLines:

** Richard and Charleine from Series 11, who were constantly at odds. The final episode hilariously had them portraying a couple brought together by a dating app, for the video segment of Vana's pitch.

* ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch: See below. Many of the critics who attacked Season 10 obviously didn't watch much of it; the entire theme of the season was to help people bounce back from a recession. Almost all of the contestants were unemployed, and many were on the skids. The rewards were not ostentatious displays of wealth as in previous seasons, but chances for the project leaders to meet with prominent business leaders and get their advice; if the contestant was particularly bad off they would also receive a practical reward to help them get back on their feet. The show had also jettisoned all of the Burnettisms and pettiness that had made the original Apprentice so hard to watch in later seasons.

* ReplacementScrappy: Virtually all of the boardroom judges other than George, Carolyn, and possibly Bill Rancic tend to be regarded as this. Even though the Trump children -- Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric -- have all been successful businesspeople in their own right, their family connection to the contest's head honcho has left a sour taste in the mouths of certain viewers (it doesn't help that some are convinced that Ivanka is there purely to act as MsFanService).

Ivanka is there purely tended to act be more divisive than outright hated, as MsFanService).she's actually the most successful businessperson of the three, but most of her successes weren't until after she became an ''Apprentice'' judge.
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: By the end of Trump's time on the show, Ivanka had mostly shed the haters that she had. More pronounced with Donald Jr., who tended to be very surly and awkward during Seasons 5 and 6, but actually became quite witty and entertaining as the ''Celebrity'' seasons went on. Eric was less lucky however, never quite winning over the viewers.

** Nick Hewer, especially as British panel game shows have started hiring him. He is one of the most popular guests on ''HaveIGotNewsForYou'' and managed to combine the almost incompatible qualities of wit and MagnificentBastard-like ability to fib on ''WouldILieToYou.''
