The Celebrity Apprentice star, 32, told 9Now: ‘I think sometimes if there’s someone high up that just doesn’t like you. You’re doomed.’

‘There’s nothing you can do. It doesn’t matter how much you prove yourself, it doesn’t matter how great you are at what you do. It’s a setback,’ she said.

Martha, who worked as a makeup artist before MAFS, explained that no matter how determined she was to prove her worth, she just couldn’t get ahead, 

‘But I think it eventually pays off. You just have to be determined,’ she added.

Meanwhile, the social media superstar is tipped to win the Channel Nine program.

Earlier this week, just a day after the season premiere, fans noticed Lord Sugar was only following one of the contestants on Instagram: Martha.

Some viewers believed this was a sign she takes out the competition, but online bookmakers are tipping The Block’s Shaynna Blaze to win.
