Former Miss Jamaica Universe Confident Ahead of Debut on The Apprentice (Video)

Miss Jamaica Universe 2008, April Jackson seems to beaming with confidence ahead of her appearance on The Apprentice 2015 which airs on BBC One.

The Apprentice (UK version) is a British reality game show in which a group of aspiring businessmen and women compete for the chance to win a £250,000 investment from British business magnate, Alan Sugar, towards a business of the candidate’s creation, with Sugar as a 50% owner.

Her recently released audition demo for the popular TV show has garnered a lot of attention from Jamaicans.

The 26-year-old former Miss Jamaica Universe is the owner of a boutique in Kingston and also founded a successful event management company and a children’s charity.


During her audition , Jackson she drew comparisons on being involved in the pageant and appearing on the Apprentice.

She said: “I was Miss Jamaica Universe. Clearly that makes me special. There is only a finite number of us.

“My friend was like you were Miss Jamaica 2008 – we are now in 2015. I was like honey, once Miss Jamaica always Miss Jamaica.”

“I think there’s a lot of similarities between being Miss Jamaica and being on the Apprentice. I appreciate that the Apprentice isn’t about a beauty pageant,” she said.

When asked about her chances of winning, she stated:

“I’m Jamaican. We come first – we win on the track and we will win in the boardroom.”
