John, who grew up in Ecclesfield, made headlines last year when he set up a property business while studying full-time for a degree in history and politics.
He was dubbed the ‘property mogul’ by fellow students after pulling off buy-to-let deals on low mortgages to net a monthly profit of around £2,000.
The young entrepreneur is still in his final year at university and has his sights set on earning the big cash prize to help him add to his property portfolio of multiple occupancy accommodation.
“Once I’m inside the castle I’ll be going all out to win that £20,000 prize because it would really help me invest in more properties and achieve my goal of becoming financially free at a very early age,” said John.
