But just who is Rick Monk? Here's what we know so far…
Who is Rick Monk?
Rick, 33, is a Quality Controller from Lancashire
Rick says that one of his best qualities is his confidence and assertiveness and that being able to separate business from pleasure means he is good at getting the best from others.
He believes befriending all the contestants will set him in good stead to get their backing in a task but warns he is a ‘wolf in sheep’s clothing’ and will use this to his advantage.
He says: “I won't pussyfoot and waste time, as time is of the essence in everything. People will have to like it or lump it.”
Who is on the show's board with Lord Sugar?
Lord Sugar needs "eyes and ears" on the ground during each week's tasks.
He used to be assisted by Nick Hewer and uber-shrewd Margaret Mountford.
But after legal aid Margaret left in 2009, West Ham CEO Karren Brady took over the role.
Then, in 2014, PR guru Nick left The Apprentice, and Claude Littner stepped in to replace him after years acting as one of the official interviewers during the CV round.
This year, Karren and Claude will both return to the show to spot who's not pulling their weight during the tasks.
When does The Apprentice start on BBC One?
The Apprentice is a hit BBC reality show, now going into its 14th series, featuring hour-long episodes.
Each series of the programme aims to find a new apprentice for billionaire business mogul and Amstrad founder Lord Alan Sugar, who's worth £1.4bn.
It aims to recreate the toughest of business environments and tasks for its set of contestants, but it is often very funny due to the incompetence and arrogance of the competitors.
It will start on BBC One on Wednesday, October 3.
