Apprentice's Stella models dress
Apprentice candidate Stella English sits in a window in a tiny dress for the latest show task - prompting Nick Hewer to compare her to an Amsterdam red light girl.
The business wannabe becomes a living model for a fashion challenge at Manchester's Trafford Centre as the two teams aim to fill their pockets and avoid a dressing down.
But in Wednesday night's BBC One show, viewers will see Lord Sugar's advisor Hewer exasperated by the efforts of the Synergy team as they struggle to get up and running on time.
Under project manager Liz Locke, the group are late in opening their doors to sell their fashion collection, prompting the centre manager to storm: "The store should be open by now. Every other store in the centre is open."
To hurry things along, Stella agrees to act as a living mannequin, to the derision of Hewer. He grumbles: "Behind me you can see Stella wearing a very short sequinned emerald green dress waving at people from a window. Amsterdam, maybe - but not in Manchester."
Stella has already become a model for her team during the series, donning a swimming costume for a photoshoot for a new beach product. But she drew the line at wearing anything too skimpy.
Competitors on the rival Apollo team even suggest fibbing to drag punters into their shop.
Alex Epstein suggests: "How about we tell people we opened the store today and we've got Fearne Cotton and Alesha Dixon in the store?"
Bemused teammate Sandeesh Samra responds: "Because that's a lie."
