Sir Alan Sugar has hired 27-year-old Yasmina Siadatan to be his next employee during the final showdown on BBC One's The Apprentice.
Sir Alan said "gut instinct" had made him plump for restaurant owner Siadatan over finalist Kate Walsh.
Siadatan admitted making "some quite serious errors" during the televised selection process.
But she said she thought these mistakes may have had a positive effect of endearing her to Sir Alan.
"Maybe I've shown him that even though I've got this real confidence and real strength in some areas, I've also got a side of me that is slightly insecure and slightly unsure and I will make mistakes," she said.
"But without that side to you I don't think you can ever really excel and succeed."
I don't feel like I've beaten Kate because I feel we both deserved that job, and we feel we just had different qualities and Sir Alan needed my qualities over hers
