About The Apprentice: Donald Trump and his associates George Ross and Carolyn Kepcher are back to test a brand new crop of candidates on their business skills. This season 18 candidates will endure the scrutiny of George, Carolyn, and of course Mr. Trump, as they embark on the job interview of a lifetime. These candidates come from varying backgrounds, ranging from Ivy League graduates, to self-made entrepreneurs with no more than a high school education. Each week two corporations made up of candidates face off against each other in a series of various business oriented tasks. These tasks challenge the candidates to use innovative thinking, superior people skills, and good old-fashioned hard work to be successful. The corporation that wins enjoys a spectacular reward, but the losers go to the boardroom where Mr. Trump grills them on their mistakes. With input from George, Carolyn, and other surprise boardroom guests, Mr. Trump determines who did the worst job and utters those two infamous words "You're fired!" The last candidate standing wins the title of "The Apprentice" and will be given a high-level job within The Trump Organization, with a starting salary exceeding six-figures.
