THERE'S CRYING IN THE BOARDROOM AS TRUMP SHOWS SOFTER SIDE DURING FIRST-EVER POST-FIRING SOBFEST ON NBC'S "THE APPRENTICE" (APRIL 14, 9-10PM ET/PT)

Candidates Rev Up Pontiac Creating Promotional Brochure for New Solstice Roadster

Trump, Melania and the Winning Team Shoot Hoops with Isaiah Thomas and The New York Knicks

NEW YORK -- April 12, 2005 -- For the first time in "The Apprentice" history, a candidate breaks down and sobs in the boardroom after an emotional exchange which leads to this week's firing on NBC, April 14, 9-10 p.m. ET/PT. After the firing, Donald Trump feels so bad that he invites the firee to join him on the other side of the boardroom table and a sincere, tear-filled moment ensues.

On this week's task candidates create a promotional brochure for Pontiac's new Solstice Roadster. Armed with top-notch photographers, graphic artists and models, each team must design and print the brochures before presenting their finished product to Pontiac executives. During the task delivery Trump also announces that the winner of this season's "Apprentice" will receive their very own Solstice.

An unlikely hero emerges during the task and blows away the competition with their creativity and dedication. Both teams attempt to pull all-nighters to complete the task but one project manager is left alone by their sleepy colleagues.

An amusing team-building reward at Madison Square Garden features Trump shooting foul shots with the winning team along side Isaiah Thomas and some of The New York Knicks.

Remaining Candidates:
"NET WORTH": Chris, Alex and one candidate from "Magna"
"MAGNA": Kendra, Tana, Bren, Craig

Week 12 Exemption: Tana

"The Solstice evokes a passionate response from just about everyone who sees it," said Mark-Hans Richer, Pontiac marketing director. "It was fun watching 'The Apprentice' candidates get hooked on Solstice, just as we hope the rest of the country soon will."
