Storyline

"The Apprentice" is a 15-episode unscripted drama in which 16 candidates from all walks of life, including both Ivy League MBA graduates and street entrepreneurs with no college education, will endure rigorous tasks each week while living together in a hip Manhattan loft apartment. The tasks will test their intelligence, chutzpah and street-smarts. They will face the challenges of living in close quarters and must compete sometimes humorous but always difficult job assignments and will be forced to think outside the box in order to outshine each other to get to the top. Upon their arrival to New York City (some for the very first time), the 16 candidates will be rushed over to Trump Tower to meet with Donald Trump, the centerpiece and driving force of this series. After splitting the group into two teams of 8, Trump then issues the first task. Teams will be given time constraints for each task and they will be observed by either Trump himself or members of his staff at every moment ... Written by NBC

Trivia

Series creator Mark Burnett originally conceived of the contestants in the first season being divided into college graduates vs. those who finished only high school. However, of those who applied to be on the show there were not enough credible contestants who did not graduate from college. As a result, the teams were instead divided into males and females. The popularity of the show caused a very large number of people to apply to be contestants and the producers were then able to choose a full team with only those with high school educations that was more or less evenly matched with those who graduated from college. This became the premise of the competition in the third season. See more »

Goofs

In several of the episodes, when the fired apprentice leaves Trump Tower they get into a cab in which the hack number is clearly visible; however, when the cab pulls away there is a different number on the side of the cab. See more »

Good season, stupid people
31 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think the worst part of the Apprentice is that it takes an excellent concept (finding the next Apprentice by putting the contestants in real-world situations where they have to show project management skills and business acumen to survive) and places the dumbest contestants where intelligent, ambitious people should be. It particularly angers me that the women on the show are always chosen solely for their looks and lose their tasks because they are vapid, engage in cat fights and have air in the space where their brains should be. Of course, this has to be contrasted with the male contestants who are (usually) immature and have superegos, but at least have some sort of brain power. The blatant sexism on this show is obvious. But at least the concept of a reality show for the business world is engaging and you can feel slightly better about watching reality TV when it isn't about TV romanticism or really bad singers. Let's just hope that eventually they can find competent contestants to fit the bill on the show. Now wouldn't that be interesting?
