There is perhaps nothing more chaotic on reality TV than when The Apprentice contestants have a food task to complete. Remember the baby food task from last year's series? Yikes. Last night's episode (12th January) saw the candidates compete to sell the most bao buns, and it's safe to say there is one particular part of the challenge that has left fans of the show creasing.
As part of the challenge the two teams, split into men and women, had to create bao buns to sell to the public at food markets in London, as well as creating a bespoke order for a corporate client. The teams split in two, with one half of each team organising the ingredients needed for their bao buns, and it's here where the chaos begins.
The girls' team had decided on selling a basa and katsu bun to the public. Whilst their idea was pretty good, they had real trouble with the calculations for the ingredient quantities, and at one point Karren Brady had to point out their maths for the calculation 45 x 400 was completely off.
Viewers of the show found the moment hilarious, with one fan writing on Twitter: "They are all meant to be smart but watching them do math is giving me a headache."
Another said: "I hate maths and would be loathed to do 2 more years BUT the appalling maths on tonight's Apprentice... maybe they should!?!"
And another agreed saying: "Someone get the girls a calculator please."
Now, we're no expert mathematicians, but if we were going on The Apprentice, we'd probably want to brush up on our addition skills.
Thankfully, their maths skills didn't stop the women from winning the task and securing a profit of £754.
This meant the boys' team lost, and after a tense boardroom meeting, it was accountant Kevin D'Arcy who was fired.
We can't wait to see what chaotic task the teams have to do in next week's episode.
The Apprentice is available on BBC One and BBC iPlayer now.
