Tom chats to Joe Forrester
Monday 11 Jun 2012
In this interview, Apprentice 2012 runner-up Tom Gearing chats to Joe Forrester about his time on the hit business show.
Tom really lets his hair down and give us the inside scoop on what really goes on in the house between tasks (erm…mainly table tennis apparently), Nick Hewer the ladies' man and getting an eyeful of Ricky Martin’s secret weapon every morning. He also takes questions from Twitter and plays the game that's sweeping the nation, 'Hire or Fire'.

Tom shot to stardom for being the best dressed man on television (pretty much single handedly bringing back the tie clip in the process), but more poignantly for showing business wisdom and entrepreneurial nous way beyond his years.
Tom was in control and implemented a risky strategy of quality and desirability of product over quantity. This proved to be a winning strategy and his experience shone through...Tom understood the task and remained confident with the risks he took. Demonstrating drive and determinism as well as competitiveness and knowledge
What an enigmatic bloke! He is very quietly spoken with remarkable composure, which means that when he does talk people listen to him. And he is bright, a strategist, thoughtful.
Entrepreneur, wine connoisseur, heartthrob and TV star. The traits of Tom Gearing make the 23-year-old sound more James Bond than Apprentice...
Is this man, Tom Gearing really a candidate? He belongs on the pages of omg! He's got that sultry stare perfected already.
Tom Gearing consistently speaks up with common sense in a non-threatening manner. He is one of my favourites.
