Paul Torrisi

Paolo "Paul" Roberto Torrisi (born 25 April 1970) was one of the final four contestants on the first UK series (2005) of reality TV show The Apprentice, in which contestants compete for a £100,000-a-year job working for British business magnate Sir Alan Sugar.[1]

On The Apprentice, Sir Alan Sugar praised Torrisi's tenacity, remarking that Torrisi was a "renegade" and saying that he reminded him of his younger self. Torrisi attributed his short temper to his Italian background, to which Sugar's assistant Margaret Mountford said: "That's no excuse for having a temper." After his appearance on The Apprentice, Torrisi has gone on to make appearances on Grandstand, BBC Breakfast, Bargain Hunt, ITV1's Confessions Of An Estate Agent, T4 and Look North. He returned to The Apprentice in 2006 as a guest on the spin-off show The Apprentice: You're Fired! Torrisi presented Property Prophets on UKTV Style and UKTV Bright Ideas. He writes regularly for Start Your Business magazine and has made many appearances on BBC Radio discussing business and current events.
