'The Apprentice' returns for a new season in January

MUMBAI: There will be twists and turns when the new season of the business based reality show The Apprentice kicks off on 7 January 2007 on US broadcaster NBC. In India the show will air on Star World.

The show moves to Los Angeles and 18 contestants vie for the right to be real estate moghul Donald Trump's apprentice.

In a social experiment of haves and have nots, contestants this season will have to earn the right to live like Trump. Each week, the contestants on the winning team will get to live in a luxurious mansion.

But contestants on the losing team will have to sleep outside in tents in the back yard of the mansion with outdoor showers and port-a-potties, giving contestants more incentive than ever to win their tasks each week.

In another new twist, the winning project manager each week will remain project manager until they lose, plus they will also sit in the boardroom and help advise Trump on who he should fire each week from their opposing team. Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. will return for several episodes, along with previous Apprentice winners, as boardroom advisors to their father.

The new Apprentice cast ranges in age from 24-37 and includes an Olympic Gold medalist, an internet entrepreneur, a construction firm owner and the vice president of business and legal affairs for a movie studio. All will have to navigate the new twists and turns while vying for the coveted title of "The Apprentice" and the career opportunity of a lifetime working for the legendary business tycoon.
