A reality show where aspiring businesspeople compete to win the opportunity to run one of Donald Trump's companies.
The Apprentice is billed as the ultimate job interview, where a group of contestants compete in a series of business related tasks, which usually involve promoting a new product of a successful company.
In each episode, Donald Trump gives the group of contestants their task for the week. Working in teams, they use their combined book smarts and street smarts to earn the most money or put forth the best product promotion.
After a winning team is chosen, the losing team is sent to the boardroom, where Trump and his associates decide who will be 'fired'.
