23 year old Victorian real estate auctioneer Andrew ‘Morello’ has won The Apprentice Australia.
He defeated Heather for the inaugural title of the Nine reality series.
Third place-getter Gavin was eliminated following a dinner with boss Mark Bouris.
Both finalists had to draw teams from their former colleagues for a final challenge with the launch of a new men’s fragrance including name, bottle, TV ad and magazine campaign.
Heather settled on ‘Alpha Male’ fragrance, Morello chose a gangster theme named ‘Clyde.’ While Morello’s choices showed a lot of risk, Heather played it safe and simple.
Bouris seemed to accept that while Morello was best at managing people, Heather was stronger at completing a task.
In winning the Australian adaptation of the US series Morello lands a $200,00 package as Head of Business Development for wealth advisory company Yellow Brick Road with a 12 month contract.
