The Apprentice week four challenge is a discount buying task in Jersey 

The Apprentice week four sees the remaining candidates head to the Channel Island of Jersey for the much loved discount buying task

Teams Nexus and Supream, which had been mixed up last week will search across the island for nine items, and get them for as little as possible. In a teaser for the episode Alan Sugar said: “Jersey may be a small Island, but it adds an impressive £14 billion to the UK economy every year.”

With an island treasure hunt in the offing both teams will be up against the clock, regional geography, and a complete lack of local knowledge as they hope to make it through to week five.

What is The Apprentice week 4 task?

Week four’s discount buying task is a firm favourite that has been a part of the show since the very first series. This time the task will take place in Jersey, the largest of the Channel Islands.

The candidates must travel across the 45 square mile island to hunt for nine items that are synonymous with the area, from shackles to surfboards. The team that secures the most items at the lowest prices wins. 

In the losing team, three candidates will be brought back into the boardroom to face Lord Sugar, and at least one of them will be fired.
