    Did anyone catch any of these? You would think that reality TV featuring Donald Trump would be unbearable but it made pretty good viewing. The ones I caught were acceptably entertaining and thought provoking.

    Apparently there is to be an English version made. Not sure who will 'play' Trump'. Branson is the obvious choice, maybe Dyson or Alan Sugar

    I thought the Apprentice was ace. I used to think Trump was a [slang term for bottom] but really warmed to him. I liked the way he really probed the contestants after each task. "You're fired!"

    He's like Lex Luthor with all the stuff he names after himself. "Oooh, here's my new mineral water drink, it's called Trump Ice".

    What a guy! The Hair. The Legend. The Donald. :clap:


    I heard Alan Sugar for the UK version. Apparently he wanted to say "you're sacked", a more British way of putting it, but Trump wouldn't let him, it would compromise the integrity of the show (or something). :D

    A very good series, but they could have put it on at a better time.
    Did you see the bit where Trump was talking about one of his buildings being turned into apartments, the very top apartment being sold for $35 million!!!

    It's a different world & I can see why the contestants wanted to be part of it. Even one of the early dismissed players turned up with a case of $250,000 to pay Trump to employ him for a year!

    Its a good watch, but these americans (donalds) side kicks seems a bit arragont. They keep telling the contestants to shut up!, all the time. They think they are big time charlies. Not sure if i like trump. His decor is quite bad.

    This usa series is more fun, as the girls bitch alot. The best one was when the bloke was pardoned from being fired, put himself up in the boardroom, and actually got fired!, for doing so!.
