But since failing to bag the winning spot on the BBC show, it seems that finalist Luisa Zissman has ditched the dull attire in favour of a more feminine look.
The 26-year-old was spotted sunning herself in a girlie pink bikini while in Marbella last week, before getting her hair dip-dyed the same colour when she was back in London on Thursday.
She might be a businesswoman, but Luisa looked like she was a long way from the boardroom as she let her hair down in the Spanish city earlier in the month.

And after parading around in a barely-there gold bikini, the star decided to swap it in favour of something a little more feminine, but no less revealing.
Clearly proud of her curvaceous bikini body, she spent the day sunning herself by the pool in the saccharine sweet two-piece, in between swimming in the pool.

The push-up bra top had a large sequined bow attached to the front to add a little glamour, while the low-slung bottoms had tie-up bows at the sides.
And the confident star certainly wasn’t shy about wandering around the pool area without a cover-up on, happy to have all eyes on her.
While she spent much of the day sitting in the pool and chatting to her pals, she got a sudden burst of energy later on as she was spotted doing a star jump into the water.
Back in London this week, Luisa headed to the Colour B4 pamper day at Electric Salon where she treated herself to a dip-dye, having had raven hair for the past five years.
Speaking to MailOnline before making the colour change, Luisa said: ‘I’m so nervous about doing this! It will be perfect for V but I’m just not sure how well it will go down when I have to go back to work and into meetings.’
New look: The star certainly looked a long way from the boardroom after dying the end of her brunette locks bright pink
‘It will be a fun new look for V though, and I can just wash it out if I don’t like it.’
And Luisa won’t have too much trouble to remove the pink, as Colour B4 a hair colour remover – helping people be brave to experiment.
She loves pink! It obviously wasn’t a tough decision for Luisa as she opted for the girlie colour
