Arjun Rajyagor wins first 'Junior Apprentice'

Friday June 11, 2010

After ten weeks of tough entrepreneurial tasks, 17-year-old Essex lad Arjun Rajyagor has been named the winner of new BBC1 programme, Junior Apprentice.

Host Alan Sugar and the other judges selected Arjun to take home the £25,000 prize - which can only be used to undertake a business venture - after he and the other contestants presented their ideas for a new brand of bottled water during the final show.

"Arjun has that natural business flair combined with intelligence that some people are born with - you can't learn it," Lord Sugar said of the teen, who someday hopes to own an electrical engineering company.

Arjun, meanwhile, was ecstatic about his win: "It's been an amazing opportunity and I can't believe I’m the first Junior Apprentice. It's absolutely mind-blowing and it hasn't even set in yet."
