‘The Apprentice’: 9 Lessons About Donald Trump From Binge-Watching the First Season

21 July 2016 5:34 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Donald Trump’s entrance earlier this week at the Republican National Convention — buttressed by strobe lights, fog and a soundtrack (Queen’s “We Are the Champions”) — may have raised some eyebrows. But not for loyal viewers of “The Apprentice.” That’s how the Donald has rolled ever since becoming a breakout TV star in 2004. Just take an episode from the first season, during a challenge set at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City. Donald swoops in like Bruce Wayne via his own Trump-branded helicopter, then strolls through the casino’s lobby, shaking hands with wide-eyed gamblers. “How are you doing everybody?” Trump says, sounding like a political candidate.

It’s fairly typical for presidential nominees to enlist Hollywood figures for their biographical convention films. Davis Guggenheim »
