Former Aston Student Nick Holzherr Comes Third on “The Apprentice”

The Final Four Copyright 2008 News Group Newspapers Ltd

So Nick did not win the final on BBC 1’s “The Apprentice”. *sniff* However, not only did he manage to come third, effectively beating 13 impressive competitors, he also gained 5000 followers on Twitter – and we are convinced that at least some of them did not exclusively sign up to hear more about his hair.

In Sunday’s finale Lord Sugar preferred to play it safe and decided to invest in Ricky Martin’s recruitment idea. That’s Ricky Martin the entrepreneur and wrestler, not Ricky Martin the flamboyant singer. Even his proud mum calls him Richard, but this year’s winner clearly felt that something was to be gained by associating himself with a completely unrelated Latino show star.

Although this means that Nick’s exciting business project will now not receive the boost of a 250,000 pound investment, our former student appears to be doing well. Already at the weekend there was a lot of interest in his mobile phone app “whisk”  which will help consumers to order recipe ingredients online. Sign up here  to be one of the the first people to hear news on the launch of Nick’s recipe service. A preview app is available here.

We’re sorry you didn’t go all the way, Nick, but we’re convinced that you will continue to be a successful businessman and any exciting news of your future endeavours will be posted here.

Viel Erfolg und alles Gute!
