Daniel, Pamela and Lauren face Lord Sugar in the boardroom
They were tasked with creating a brand new boardgame which they then had to sell to various stores across London.
Despite their focus group labelling their game, The Relationship Guru, as 'sexist', Pamela persevered and ultimately lost the task as rival Team Summit made almost double the profit on their family-oriented game, GeoKnow.
However, Pamela, who is an assistant brand manager in London, concedes it was her time to go; "I have mixed feelings. I'm absolutely gutted I went. I don't feel I deserved to go.
"However, in some respects I do feel it was my time to go. I always said getting on the process was my aim and anything more than that was the icing on the cake.
"As I met him more and more it got easier although you're still quite nervous. He's not someone you would cross. He's quite stern and he can see through everybody. He's quite on the ball. It's amazing to see him in action."
Pamela brought teammates Lauren and Daniel into the boardroom with her, and they were also criticised by Lord Sugar, although they narrowly escaped the sack.
"I knew there were an awful lot of mistakes - some from me, some from others - and it got very heated in the boardroom," says Pamela, who is reluctant to pin the blame on the others.
Fellow Irish contestant Roisin Hogan (32), an accountant from Dublin, was on the winning team and lives to fight another day. Pamela says they got on great behind the scenes.
Part of the prize of winning 'The Apprentice' is an investment of £250,000 from Lord Sugar into the candidate's business.
Pamela’s business plan was based around education and providing workshops to help children develop strategies for progressing within the education system as well as workshops for people in the working environment and business.
“I’m dyslexic myself and it’s my passion to do this. If I had something like this when I was at school it would have helped me tremendously. It’s something very close to my heart.”
Despite losing out on the investment, Pamela intends to persevere with her business in the UK and Ireland.
She feels the nature of her business was one of the reasons she was fired.
“I don’t think my business plan was for him. It was based on profit and turnover but not overly. It was more a socially conscious kind of thing, something for the greater good. And it was based in education which is quite a risky area to get into."
At the moment Pamela has a permanent job in London but hopes to return to Ireland within the year.
As for a career in TV a la previous Irish contestant Jennifer Maguire, she says, "I didn’t get into 'The Apprentice' with the view of boosting my profile. I very much went into it to try to win and make sure I got this business plan off the ground.
"At the same time I did love being in front of the camera. It was great fun, a great experience. Never say never."
