The Apprentice 2019 final — Who will win?

The final pits 32-year-old Scarlett Allen-Horton against 30-year-old Carina Lepore. They will pitch their rival business plans to Lord Sugar and a panel of experts in the final.

Lepore owns an artisan bakery and is pitching a huge expansion of that business which, she says, could see it rival Greggs on UK high-streets. She teamed up with her father when his bakery was burnt down and since then the pair have expanded into several small shops.

Allen-Horton, meanwhile, owns her own recruitment company and, similarly, is pitching an expansion of that business rather than a new venture. She wants to build a recruitment firm that puts top talent into high-paid jobs, taking a healthy commission in the process.

In last week’s interviews, Sugar’s aides expressed concerns about the scale-ability of Lepore’s bakery chain. Meanwhile Allen-Horton’s ability to access the profitable top tier of recruitment was brought into question.

This week all the previously fired contestants will return to help the finalists pitch their businesses. While Lepore has a better win-loss ratio in the process so far, it has to be Allen-Horton that enters the final as the competition favourite.
