Eighteen new candidates meet up with Donald Trump in a New York City airport to be divided into teams and set out on their first mission. After preliminary details, the task, to market Sam's Club using massive blimps, is revealed. Allie leads her team, Synergy, to a close victory against Tarek's team, Gold Rush, which loses mostly because of his lack of a creative theme and Summer's ineptitude in marketing. Synergy is treated to a glimpse of life as a billionaire. Gold Rush, meanwhile, is sent to the boardroom. Tarek is nearly fired for his poor leadership, but for stupidly interrupting Trump when he is about to fire Tarek, simply to say something incredibly irrelevant, Summer is fired instead.
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?
