Apprentice 6: Art Imitates Life?

Apprentice 6 will be filmed in LA instead of New York this year. That's not the only change. It will focus on the haves vs. haves nots:

In a compelling social experiment of haves and have nots, contestants this season will have to earn the right to live like Trump.

Each week, the contestants on the winning team will get to live in a luxurious mansion. But contestants on the losing team will have to sleep outside in tents in the back yard of the mansion with outdoor showers and port-a-potties, giving contestants more incentive than ever to win their tasks each week.

    Didn't the apprentice have the college no college season already?   It didn't seem to make much of a difference then and I doubt this will either.  I mean they interveiw these people so they are pre-screened so they know if they are worth a hoot or not.

    Basically  you will have over acheiving spoiled kids battling it out with over acheiving grass roots kids with a few dunces sprinkled in there to enforce stereotypes.  

    The real questions is who gets a chance to win a million dollars playing stupid games that are just paid commercials for big coporations?  Seems like everyone on the show is essentially a "have" just by being there.   They didn't do anything special to be there other then filling out a permission slip to be embarassed on national TV.

    Amazing Race by the way is still the best reality show on TV.  Finale is this weekend.   Want to see a social experiment at work take 12 teams of all stripes and march them around the world in pressure packed scenarios.   Good stuff.

    I'm pulling for the bama girls.

    do you mean ones where their lives are at stake? because if not, who cares? "survivor" had me going, briefly, until i realized all they did was vote them off the island, not kill them and put their heads on a pike around the camp fire.

    geez, i can see that right here at home, without commercial interruptions.

    "apprentice" is just trump being the egomaniacal rich kid he probably was in college, but getting paid for it. oh, one big difference, he now wears a really bad rug. :)
