In previous seasons of The Apprentice, people from various backgrounds competed against one another in different business-related competitions in an effort to not get fired by The Donald. The last man (or woman) standing would win the opportunity to run one of Donald Trump’s companies. While many of the contestants are college grads, others have little more than a high school education and can still run with the best of them.
What sets this season of The Apprentice apart from the previous seasons is obviously the celebrity factor. Rather than successful businessmen/women competing for Trump’s approval, this season will include a number of celebrities from the sports and entertainment industries. Since most of the celebrity contestants will probably have better things to do than run one of Trump’s companies, they’ll be competing for charity rather than a job.
Honestly, if it weren’t for the writers strike leaving the winter TV line-up pretty bare, I probably wouldn’t be all that excited for this new season of The Apprentice. I haven’t really had much interest in the reality series since the first season as it has almost always conflicted with something else I was watching that season. But between the quasi-celebs they’ve got set to compete in this season and the fact that there wont be anything else to watch on Thursday nights for a while, I’ll give Celebrity Apprentice a shot.
I’m very interested to see how huge Omarosa’s ego is, considering the evil reputation she earned for herself in the first season of Apprentice got her enough celebrity status to be included in this season’s line-up. Then again, based on some of the other contestants participating this year, that’s not saying much.
I’ll be rooting for Piers and Pastore for the guys and of the women, Nely Galan. Telemundo rules!
