The Apprentice viewers couldn’t get Netflix’s Glass Onion out of their minds after Simba Rwambiwa described himself as a disruptor.
In Thursday’s debut, 18 candidates were whisked off to the Caribbean island of Antigua – which saw the two teams creating and selling excursions to tourists.
During the first couple of minutes, senior sales executive Simba quoting the hit Knives Out sequel.
‘Simba, you say you enjoy being a disruptor, is that right?,’ asks Lord Alan Sugar.
The contestant replied: ‘I think it’s important to challenge the status quo, I think constructive disruption is very good.’
And the disruptor theme didn’t stop there, as project manager Victoria Goulbourne chose to bring dumped contestant Emma Browne back ‘for the disruption’ and Marnie Swindells was hauled into the firing line for her ‘lack of leadership’.

Following the recent release of Glass Onion – which stars Daniel Craig and Kate Hudson – fans found themselves comparing tonight’s episode to the murder mystery Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, which centers around disruptors.
‘Simba has quoted #GlassOnion instantly without realising he did it at the time. Icon behaviour!’ one person wrote.
Another added: ‘Having watched Glass Onion, I swear the word “Disruptor” is following me. Now I’m watching #TheApprentice, I don’t think I’ve heard this word used so much in my life!!!!’
A third person wrote: ‘Oh god, someone calling themselves ‘A Disruptor’ in the first 5 minutes. What in the Glass Onion are we to expect.’
During tonight’s debut, the men reigned supreme in the Antigua challenge, while the girls found themselves bickering over location choices.
After ending up in the boardroom with Victoria and Marnie, Emma was the first to hear those dreaded two words.
Reflecting on her exit, she said: ‘I got the most sales.
‘I was accurate in saying the beach wasn’t a good location. I brought a lot of energy to the girl’s team which I think was seen as well and highlighted. I am a very positive person, and I remained positive throughout.’
The Apprentice returns next Thursday at 9pm on BBC One.
