"Women are like tea bags - you don’t know how strong they are until you put them in hot water."
That's the fighting talk from The Apprentice candidate, Sarah Lynn, who is hoping to secure a deal with Lord Sugar in this series of the hit BBC One show.
The 35-year-old mum and business woman from Notting Hill is currently favourite to win, after making a great impression in the first few episodes.
Sarah's ability to sell has proven to be a success each week with the girls - Team Graphene - securing a 3-1 win.
She was moved to the boys' team - Team Vitality - in week four and they managed to secure their first win of the series.
But what's it like being on the show and is Lord Sugar really that brutal? Get West London caught up with Sarah to find out more about her journey so far.
How have you found the tasks so far and what was it like being project manager for the first 'burger' challenge?
"It was slightly surreal, I didn't expect to be PM in week one and sort of found myself saying 'I'll do it', but I'm so pleased that I did.
"I just threw myself into the deep end and I think with the show, you have to make your mark."
She added: "It's about managing personalities and playing to people's strengths - you have to show and shine on these tasks.
"You have to make decisions and get the best out of them."
How do you cope with such strong characters in your team?
"It's tough and challenging, but rewarding.
"It's all about understanding your fellow candidates, as in week one and two you don't all know each other properly and you need to get a measure of everyone.
"It's like any business in real life.
"We all have families and it's a bit like going back to school [living with the candidates]."
The girls seem to constantly bicker, what's that like?
"The girls' friction has actually created results - you've seen from the shows that they have won the first few challenges.
"It was tough during the robots task, especially with the dynamic, that wore me down.
"With the lads, they have high energy so getting to join their team, that was really nice.
"I'm also a Chelsea fan so doing the footy challenge was good fun."
What's Lord Sugar really like?
"He's really direct and no nonsense, but he just wants clarity.
"I actually find it inspiring, you can apply that to every day life - he's refreshing and has mastered the art of cutting to the chase and having no nonsense in the boardroom.
"It's fascinating to watch."
What's it like having Karren Brady and Claude Littner watching your every move?
"You're very aware that Claude and Karren are there but as the hours go on, you just forget.
"You can't think about it too much or you would crumble under the pressure.
"I blocked it out and just thought during each task 'what would I do if this was my own business'."
How does it feel when you have people tweeting you and coming up to you in public?
"I've had positive feedback and it's nice to be liked for who I am.
"Obviously you have people who don't say nice things but it's mostly been really lovely, I'm here to do all I can."
The Apprentice airs at 9pm on BBC One and BBC One HD on Wednesdays.
