Donald Trump 'Pops a Wheelie' as Candidates Create New Mobile Business Using Airstream Trailers on NBC's 'The Apprentice,' February 17 (9-10 PM Et)

[via press release from NBC]



NEW YORK -- February 15, 2005 -- Donald Trump immediately expresses his frustration and disappointment in the two teams while delivering the fifth task on season three of NBC's "The Apprentice" (Thursday, February 17, 9-10pm ET). "I have to say I expect big things from you in this task," said Trump. "I was very disappointed in you last week, so I am counting on you to show me some creative thinking."

Trump gives each team $5,000 in seed money to redesign a 28-foot Airstream mobile trailer in which candidates must create and conduct a business service. Teams may transport their trailer anywhere in Manhattan and begin making money. The team that makes the most revenue from their "mobile business" wins.

The most lavish reward yet awaits the winning team as they get to spend $20,000 on Mikimoto jewelry.

Carolyn Kepcher misses her first "Apprentice" task due to a business trip. She is replaced in this episode by Jill Cremer, VP of Development for The Trump Organization.

"At Airstream we pride ourselves on design, quality and innovation in everything we do," said Dicky Riegel, President and CEO of Airstream. "We know those are qualities Donald Trump appreciates in a product, and why Airstream was specifically selected by 'The Apprentice' as a corporate partner. Everyone in the Airstream family, from our production associates in Ohio to our dealers all over the world, are very excited to showcase those qualities to millions of Apprentice fans through the Airstream International trailers featured in the upcoming episode. "

"MAGNA": Stephanie, Bren, Erin, Michael, Kendra, and Alex

"NET WORTH": John, Audrey, Angie, Tara, Chris, Tana, and Craig.

Week 5 Exemption: None, neither team won.
