Anyone who clocked the original list of stars attached to this year's Celebrity Apprentice could have picked that Sophie Monk and Tim Dormer would wind up at the top. The hilarious friends, who bicker like brother and sister and do absolutely zero to hide their annoyances, are both savvy, street smart and confident — key ingredients to creating budding business(wo)men under the tutelage of an on-form Mark Bouris.
We know Tim as the winner of 2013's Big Brother, but he didn't just win — he played that game like a boss. On Celeb Apprentice, he's doing the same. He's tactical, super smart and knows exactly how to push his competitors buttons. He can talk the talk when he's selling Mark Bouris' products on the street, he can hold a crowd when he needs to entertain and he always, always remains calm — which might have been his secret weapon in a sea of emotional celebrity competitors.
Sophie is the golden girl we fell in love with as a Popstars winner in 1999, and to have maintained a busy career since then proves she's a businesswoman to be reckoned with. Another thing Sophie can do really well is use her star power. Throughout the show, she's called on her huge fan base to support whatever challenges Mark Bouris had set, and once they got there, Sophie had all the charm and wit to pique their interest and drive her team to success — most of the time. Though she plays up to the stereotypes she's often faced with, Sophie is smart, funny (she loves a prank!) and not to be underestimated.
