Sixteen candidates, all badly affected by the recent economic recession, arrived at Trump Tower in the hopes of becoming the next Apprentice. They divided into two teams -- the men, who named themselves Octane, and the women, who named themselves Fortitude. The first week's task was to design and build an ultramodern workspace. Octane built the better workspace for the win. Project Manager Gene won the right to meet with a powerful CEO: Trump himself! Fortitude went to the boardroom, where Nicole was fired.
The Apprentice is the ultimate job interview, where Americans compete in a series of rigorous business tasks, many of which include prominent Fortune 500 companies and require street smarts and intelligence to conquer, in order to show Donald Trump, the boss, that they are the best candidate for his companies.
In each episode, the losing team is sent to the boardroom, where Trump and his associates, Carolyn Kepcher and George Ross, and later, his children, Donald Trump, Jr., and Ivanka Trump, judge the job applicants on their performance in the task. One person is fired and sent home. Who will succeed? Who will fail? And who will be The Apprentice?
