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

It typically takes 7-1\2 hours to film each Boardroom session. Among other things that end up on the "editing room floor" are expletive-laced interactions and heated exchanges that make the ones that are actually aired seem tame by comparison. See more »

Goofs

In the episode where Audrey is fired, she is seen in the boardroom and lobby wearing a dress. When she walks out onto the street and into the taxi, she is clearly wearing pants. See more »

Quotes

Ereka Vetrini: That is like calling the kettle black.
Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth: See, there you go with your racist terms. What was that you said about black people?

This "Celebrity" Apprentice is staged!
7 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I bet you Gene Simmons and Vincent Pastore negotiated in advance how many episodes they would be willing to appear in. Isn't just too contrived for Gene to switch to the ladies team and then throw himself on his sword? And Big Pussy? What the hell was that "look at me, I'm a rat!" double episode crap? All that cliché mafia banter- COME ON! The big names voted off just happened to already have received money for their charity and got a custom tailored exit. Hmm... This is not reality but staged drama! Mark Burnett's other show, "Survivor" also raised questions for me when Johnny Fairplay stages his departure when he clearly had just a short time before his child is to be born.

Yuk!
