Apprentice web chat: Melody Hossaini

Tenth fired candidate answers your questions

Last night's Apprentice (6 July) saw team leader Melody Hossaini given her marching orders following a back-to-basics task selling wholesale goods.

Melody recently joined Stylist for a live web chat - read the full transcript from the discussion in the comments section below.

Iranian-born Melody is the founder & director of a global youth consultancy business based in the Midlands.

She lived in four different countries before settling in the UK and speaks five languages. At the age of 13, she set up a renowned UK youth organisation and (in case you didn't hear her mention it on previous episodes) has won the Woman of the Future award for her voluntary work.

As a Global Youth Sector Entrepreneur, she has worked with an impressive set of names, including Nobel peace prize winners Desmond Tutu, Dalai Lama and Sherin Ebadi. If that isn't enough to give her some serious kudos, she was also trained on climate change by Al Gore.

Melody's catchphrase is “Don’t tell me the sky’s the limit when there are footprints on the moon” - however reached her own limits in the latest Apprentice show after failing to impress as the project manager of Logic.

Tasked to "smell what sells" with a variety of wholesale products, Melody was slammed by fellow teammate Helen Milligan, who attemped a takeover at one point, saying, "She doesn’t seem to have grasped what we are doing at all."

Back in the boardroom, Lord Sugar said he struggled to see what Melody actually did, commenting, 'The person going is not made for me and on that basis, it is with regret, Melody, you're fired!"

The web chat has now closed but you can read what Melody had to say about her time on The Apprentice, along with all the questions from the discussion, in the comments section below.
