Celebrity Apprentice’s Alex Hayes on his one disappointment about the show

‘It was seen as a liability’: Celebrity Apprentice’s first eliminated star Alex Hayes reveals his one disappointment about the show – and what he really thinks about the term ‘influencer’

His young age was brought up in the boardroom before he was the first to be fired on Celebrity Apprentice.

And Alex Hayes, 23, told Daily Mail Australia this week that placing such a focus on age sends the wrong message to all the ‘young dreamers out there’. 

‘It was inevitable for my age to be seen as a liability while on the show. That’s one of the only disappointing things for me from the whole experience,’ the surfer said.

When asked whether he believed his young age to be his downfall, Alex said that the message it sent ‘to all the young dreamers out there who are already tired of being belittled by older people and institutionalised environments, was unfortunate’.  

‘I do think it was a huge missed opportunity to show that character judgement shouldn’t be based off uncontrollable things like age, and that it should be based off actions, values and desire to learn,’ he continued.   

Alex, who is a surfer, model, investor and ambassador, also revealed what he thinks about those who consider him as just an influencer.

‘I understand there is a bit of stigma and judgement around the word influencer, it’s a very common job title nowadays,’ he said.

‘I try not to worry too much about what titles people give me, and just want to focus on my day to day actions taking me closer to my goals. Actions speak louder.’ 

While he may have been the first to be fired by Lord Alan Sugar, Alex is already making waves in the business world, having invested in seltzer brand Vacay.

‘After going sober for over a year when I was 20, I wanted to educate myself on finding a better balance. Being able to stay fit but also have a few drinks here, go wild here and there,’ he said of his business idea.

‘I had heard of seltzers from my time spent in America and was always curious for when they would come to Australia as I loved that they were the healthiest alternative to drinking.  

He continued: ‘When I found out they were coming to Australia, I partnered with the current CEO James McPhie to build Vacay! So grateful to be an owner in this great company and it’s been an epic business learning venture.’ 

Alex is also releasing his debut single XI as an independent artist on June 18.
