Jasmine Kundra has been fired from "The Apprentice".
The 34-year-old Learning and Development Manager was the eighth candidate to be axed from the 16th season of the business reality show on Wednesday night (21.11.18) and she is "heartbroken" to be leaving the competition and thinks Tom Bunday had a lucky escape.
In an exclusive interview with BANG Showbiz, she said: "I am really surprised at being fired at this point if I'm being honest with you and actually quite heartbroken at missing out on the opportunity to be Lord Sugar's next business partner."
When asked which contestants had a lucky escape, she added: "Definitely Tom, I think he was very lucky to escape. I think being a tree surgeon who didn't do very well in the gardening task and then being somebody who has family links to the art world that was unable to sell even one work of art. I think he was very lucky not to be fired."
Jasmine admitted that she is "in denial" after leaving the show and would "jump at the chance" to work with Lord Sugar again.
She shared: "I'm sort of in denial. I keep hoping that Lord Sugar's gonna change his mind and actually give me a call and say "Jasmine I've had time to reflect actually I'd love to work with you".
"I'd jump at the chance absolutely I don't have hard feelings. I think you can't let people's decision be their defining moment it's what you do with failure or adversity that defines you not the failure itself. So absolutely I would bite his hand off if he came back."
