The Apprentice is a popular reality television program hosted by the New York real estate developer and businessman Donald Trump. The Apprentice was created by the king of reality TV Mark Burnett, who also created several other programs from the genre (Survivor, Rock Star, The Contender, etc).

Episode one of the first season of the NBC program The Apprentice aired on the 8th of January, 2004. The show was marketed as the "ultimate job interview" with the winner getting a six figure paying job for at least one year with the Trump organization. The contestants are based in the "ultimate jungle" of New York in the Trump Tower, where they live and work together.

"It's always interesting to watch people who have been incredibly successful in their own businesses work in a group made up of equally strong personalities. It takes a special kind of leader who can effectively manage a team of veritable strangers and find the best way to get strong, winning performances from them.
" Donald Trump

Each week the contestants are split into two groups and given a business related task to complete. One person from each group takes on the task of project manager and is responsible for the management of their team. The winning team is rewarded with a special outing, which could include anything from a night out at a restaurant through to visiting a movie making studio. The project manager and up to three contestants from the losing side must face the dreaded boardroom interrogation where Donald Trump and two advisors discuss their performances and fire one of them.

The boardroom appearances are the most intense moment of The Apprentice as the contestant are fighting to remain in the competition. Trump and his advisors ask probing questions that force the contestants to justify their performances, while the contestants often turn on each other. Loyalty is often lost as they pass the blame onto their fellow team mates to keep their positions.

The Apprentice has become wildly successful and has run for more than 6 seasons. Season 6 of the Apprentice is be based in Los Angeles where Donald Trump also has business interests.

From season 1 through to season 5 of The Apprentice, the advisors that Donald Trump had in his boardroom were Carolyn Kepcher and George Ross. They were central figures to the program, but were replaced in season 6 with his son Donald Trump, Jr. and his daughter Ivanka Trump.

"I mean, there's no arguing. There is no anything. There is no beating around the bush. "You're fired" is a very strong term." Donald Trump

There have also been several imitators with similar premises as The Apprentice series, including "The Rebel Billionaire" with Richard Branson and "The Benefactor" with Mark Cuban. NBC also attempted to produce its own spin-off of the program with "The Apprentice: Martha Stewart". It was similar to Donald Trump's Apprentice, but hosted by the former inmate and female billionaire Martha Stewart. It lasted just one season before NBC canceled it due to poor television ratings.

The Apprentice has also been taken up by a number of countries worldwide, with famous business leaders from each country taking a similar role as Donald Trump. They all have their own version of the popular "You're Fired!" term that Donald Trump dismisses the contestants with. The International versions have had varying degrees of success. They include The Apprentice UK hosted by Sir Alan Sugar, The Apprentice Turkey (Cirak) hosted by Tuncay Özilhan, The Apprentice Switzerland (Traum Job) hosted by Jürg Marquard, The Apprentice South Africa hosted by Tokyo Sexwale, The Apprentice Russia (Kandidat) hosted by Arkadi Novikov, The Apprentice Dubai (el idara jadara) hosted by Mohamed Ali Allabar, The Apprentice Norway (Kandidaten) hosted by Inger Ellen Nicolaisen, The Apprentice Indonesia hosted by Peter Gontha, The Apprentice India (Business Baazigar) hosted by Cyrus Sahukar, The Apprentice Greece hosted by Petros Kostopoulos, The Apprentice Germany (Big Boss) hosted by Reiner Calmund, The Apprentice Finland (Diili) hosted by Jari Sarasvuo, The Apprentice Denmark hosted by Klaus Riskaer Pedersen, The Apprentice Colombia (El Aprendiz) hosted by Jean-Claude Bessudo, and The Apprentice Brazil (O Aprendiz) hosted by Roberto Justus.
