"The Apprentice" is a 15-episode unscripted drama in which 16 candidates from all walks of life, including both Ivy League MBA graduates and street entrepreneurs with no college education, will endure rigorous tasks each week while living together in a hip Manhattan loft apartment. The tasks will test their intelligence, chutzpah and street-smarts. They will face the challenges of living in close quarters and must compete sometimes humorous but always difficult job assignments and will be forced to think outside the box in order to outshine each other to get to the top. Upon their arrival to New York City (some for the very first time), the 16 candidates will be rushed over to Trump Tower to meet with Donald Trump, the centerpiece and driving force of this series. After splitting the group into two teams of 8, Trump then issues the first task. Teams will be given time constraints for each task and they will be observed by either Trump himself or members of his staff at every moment ... Written by
Though the show really does take place at Trump Tower, the Boardroom is actually a set built specifically for the show. There are sixteen cameras continuously running while a Boardroom sequence is being shot. Many cameras are positioned behind what appear to be large mirrors that surround the Boardroom. The door that Donald Trump uses to enter the Boardroom actually leads from a narrow room that houses multiple cameras hidden by mirrors. It just looks like a hallway from the camera angle used. Trump's red chair sits upon a raised platform about 4 inches high in order to make Trump appear to tower over everyone else (despite Trump already being 6'3''), emphasizing his supreme authority.

Frequent continuity errors.
It's clear that many scenes were filmed hours or days apart and then edited together with =out consideration for whether or not they visually flowed together. See more »
The best reality TV show ever made(and the only one that i like)
Even the tagline says it, "It's nothing personal, its just business" Finally
there's a reality TV show that shows contestants the true meaning of a
dollar. Not by falling off a bridge, eating worms, taking off your clothes,
but by learning the ways in business. Donald Trump is the host and also
producer of the show, he puts these young kids(over 20) into tasks that they
must complete if they want to succeed into the next level. If they make it,
they stay for upcoming episodes while Donald tells the others, "You're
fired!" I love the fact that there can be a reality show without hurting
anybody's feelings, and that Donald Trump gets to the point. I love the fact
that its a success and it can teach other people about the business world.
This beats the hell out of watching 'Friends', 'Frasier', 'Will & Grace' and
