South Cerney mum to compete for £20,000 prize in Lord Sugar styled competition | Samuel Leeds

A mum of three is to compete for a £20,000 prize in a Lord Sugar styled business contest.

Alisha Talevinukuleka, 37, from South Cerney, has been picked to compete for the prize in a prestigious Apprentice-style business contest.

She will be up against 12 other budding property investors from all over the country taking part in ‘The Eviction.’

Inspired by The Apprentice TV show, the competition will be held throughout April, with the contestants living together at Caverswall Castle in the Staffordshire Moorlands.

Alisha will be set a series of challenges, details of which will be kept secret.

She and the other participants will then be required to unearth and pitch ‘live’ deals to expert investors from the property and financial worlds.

“I feel nervous, fairly confident, but most mostly excited about the competition,” Alisha said.

“It’s an honour to be asked to take part.

“I’m going to give it my all and whether that’s enough or not to win, it will be enough for me.

“Winning that amount of money would mean everything.”

Samuel Leeds, 27, will be taking on the Alan Sugar role during the contest and will be regularly showing the door to contestants who do not meet his exacting standards.

“They will enjoy the facilities of the castle and our hospitality, but I’ll be evicting 12 people along the way,” Sam said.

“The last person standing will be handed £20,000 to invest in property.”

Alisha’s progress in The Eviction will be charted in an in-depth documentary which will be available for viewing on YouTube in May.
