This week's Apprentice prize was a training session with Mo Farah, but Twitter wasn't impressed

This week Lord Sugar instructed his candidates on The Apprentice to sell pet products at the London Pet Show.

After slogging their guts out to flog a combination of animal balloons, animal T-shirts, and luxury pet beds, you’d think Versatile’s prize would have centred on being pampered.

Instead, they won a training session with Britain’s Olympic and world champion runner, Mo Farah. The athlete who is also famous for those Quorn adverts.

Twitter could hardly believe it…

Where’s the wine?

A training session with mo farah? I'll stay in and drink wine but thanks #TheApprentice #tootired

Weekly winners used to fly round in helicopters drinking champagne, not shooing geese for Mo Farah #TheApprentice

No disrespect to Mo but your prize is running, I'd ask to go to the cafe, at least I could have a bun with the losers #TheApprentice

Still can't get over that the treat was running with Mo Farrah. That is NOT A TREAT. A treat is chocolate with Tom Hardy. #TheApprentice

Running with Mo Farah is not my idea of a treat. I'm sure that's a torture tactic somewhere #TheApprentice

How Quorn-y!

Your prize is eating quorn and jogging with Mo Farrah? Great! #TheApprentice

'For your treat, Mo Farah will be serving you some delicious tasty Quorn.' #TheApprentice

Running with the Quorn man as a reward, even vegans would count that as a punishment #theapprentice

However, one Apprentice winner approved

A treat with @Mo_Farah on #TheApprentice – Wow!!!!!! Imagine being in the losing team missing out on that and waiting to be fired! #gutted
