Only one can be crowned the Celebrity Apprentice Australia. So who can withstand the sugar rush?

Celebrity Apprentice Australia returned in 2022 with a larger-than-life season ever on Channel 9 and 9Now. Bringing together more of the country’s biggest names to battle it out in the boardroom.

The celebrities, divided into two teams, took on a range of epic tasks to avoid billionaire boss Lord Alan Sugar’s firing squad, while using their business savvy and little black book of contacts to raise money for their chosen charities.

Here are the highlights from Celebrity Apprentice Australia this season...


The celebrities are bigger, the tasks are grander and the amount of money raised for charity has never been seen before on Celebrity Apprentice Australia

CEO Lord Alan Sugar reprises his tough as nails, no-nonsense role in the boardroom, along with his trusted advisers, Boost Juice pioneer Janine Allis and program newcomer, businessman and entrepreneur Nick Bell. Under their watchful gaze, the 16 celebrities battled it out in an intense game of survival of the savviest, pulling out all stops to raise money for their chosen charities.

The personal stakes were high as big egos, high-pressure situations, and exciting new game play ramps up the competition between the celebrities of Celebrity Apprentice Australia. There were more explosive moments and twists and turns on the road to the winner being crowned the Celebrity Apprentice.
