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

Though the show really does take place at Trump Tower, the Boardroom is actually a set built specifically for the show. There are sixteen cameras continuously running while a Boardroom sequence is being shot. Many cameras are positioned behind what appear to be large mirrors that surround the Boardroom. The door that Donald Trump uses to enter the Boardroom actually leads from a narrow room that houses multiple cameras hidden by mirrors. It just looks like a hallway from the camera angle used. Trump's red chair sits upon a raised platform about 4 inches high in order to make Trump appear to tower over everyone else (despite Trump already being 6'3''), emphasizing his supreme authority.

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 »

and it gets worse and worse
20 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I LOVED the Apprentice for the first two seasons.

But now with season 5? (or is it 6?) things are getting just plain too tiring.

I used to like the show, but its become Donald Trumps own ego fest. Granted its his company you'll be working for, but come on! some of the things says "You're FIRED" is just insulting.

after watching the show, I would not want to work for him. not because he is arrogant, pompous or such. Its just that the show is unrealistic and the way he handles things makes me just squirm. Good Entertainment? YES, but tiring as the back stabbing gets so tiring.. its not team work, its not personal, its just business. watch your back jack.
