TRUMP IS RUTHLESS IN ELECTRIFYING BOARDROOM THAT LEAVES ONE CANDIDATE IN COMPLETE SHOCK
NEW YORK -- September 13, 2004 �- Candidates get the scoop on the 20 billion dollar ice cream business during this week's installment of "The Apprentice" (September 16, 9:20-10:59pm ET). After selecting project managers, each team heads to the Ciao Bella Gelato factory where they brainstorm on a new flavor of gelato to develop. Once a flavor is decided upon, a 14 hour production and freezing process ensues. The following day, candidates sell as much gelato as possible around Manhattan.
One team concocts an innovative and heart-felt gimmick. Alliances begin to form on both teams and the knives come out in the boardroom. The climactic boardroom showdown is gasp-inducing and Trump has never been more ruthless and unpredictable. One candidate has trouble handling the intensity.
