Donald Trump Bringing Back Old “Apprentice”
Donald Trump is bringing back the old “Apprentice” without the celebrities to help the economy. NBC has announced that the original non-celebrity version of the reality show will return for a sixth season featuring contestants affected by the recession. After the original “The Apprentice” premiered in 2004, it has spawned eight seasons, two of which featured celebrity contestants. Aside from the upcoming “Celebrity Apprentice,” the show’s ninth season, NBC will also be bringing back the original “Apprentice” from creator Mark Burnett and executive producer and star Trump. The returning show will be giving opportunity to 14 candidates who were hit by the dwindling economy. The Donald said, “We’ve got to do something about the economy and this is a terrific way to provide jobs as well as business lessons along the way.” “NBC, Mark Burnett and I hope this economic downturn can begin a turnaround, and we’ll do our best with ‘The Apprentice’ to see that it starts happening. I’m proud to be putting people back to work, and to positively change the psychology of America.” The show is currently looking for potential contestants. Interested applicants are encouraged to apply by either attending one of its nationwide open calls or by email.
