I read somewhere, a couple of days ago, that the BBC are going to be changing the format of The Apprentice. Could it go the same way as the USA version?
I watched a couple of episodes of The Apprentice USA last night on BBC 1 and was quite surprised at how different AND reality gameshowy (its a word!!!) it was.
Firstly there's the intro, which is this:
Yes, those are the contestants of The Apprentice USA and not some American Drama T.V show.
Secondly, there is what happens to the losing team each week. When a team loses they get punished by having to live in the Garden of the mansion that the Winning team stay in. They sleep out there, eat out there and go toilet out there. There is also a fence (ala BB 3's divide) separating the groups, so they can only talk each other. They have to stay in the garden until they win a task.
Finally, the project manager of the Winning Team sits in on the board meeting and helps Donald Trump fire one of the candidates.
To me that just seems RE-DONK-U-LOUS (its a word!!). Would you like our Apprentice to go down that route?
