The first episode aired on TV3 on 23 September 2013. Martin Maloney of Hardy Bucks was the first celebrity to be sacked on the first show. The first task involved designing and selling custom-made T-shirts in high street store Penneys. The task was won by the girls team.[5]

Emma Quinlan was the second celebrity to be fired after the second episode which aired on 30 September. Both teams were challenged with rolling out a themed event for Carling lager with Quinlan's team winning the public vote for the best entertainment event. However bosses at Carlsberg overturned the vote and claimed that they had missed the brief in that their event could not be rolled out to pubs nationwide. Nick Leeson and Edele Lynch were also brought back into the boardroom before Quinlan was fired.[6]
