In this spinoff show, Dara O'Brien talks to the candidates who were fired by Lord Sugar. Viewers are also sometimes given unseen clips from the house. Each candidate is give a gift to remind them of their apprentice experience.
"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
As described in an interview with applicant Tammy Lee, during the first season of The Apprentice (2004), the ending clip each week showing the fired applicant exiting the Trump Tower and entering a cab had actually been filmed during one of the first few days of production before the contest started to cut down on the cost of having to set up for such a shoot each week. Every contestant had this clip filmed regardless of whether they were actually fired or not. From the second season onward, the fired contestants were actually filmed leaving the building after they were fired. See more »
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 »
Nick and Amy, this is the weakest romance I've ever seen. This romance is pathetic!
Well, I think we just decided we were meant to be very close friends.
Very close friends. That's right.
Good. I've had some "very close friends".
Me too! Me too.
It's cost me a lot of money, I'll tell you that.

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.
