THE FINAL FOUR APPRENTI TRY ON HANES THIS WEEK ON NBC'S "THE APPRENTICE"
THE WINNING DUO GETS TREATED TO A "TOP GUN" AIR COMBAT REWARD
NEW YORK -- April 26, 2005 -- It's down to the final four on NBC's "The Apprentice" with Alex left team-less after last week's boardroom and facing the intimidating trio of Tana, Kendra and Craig (Thursday, April 28, 9-10pm ET/PT). Donald Trump, however, immediately summons the four remaining candidates back down to the lobby to let Alex choose a teammate from the opposing squad. His decision rattles "Magna" setting the stage for a competitive final four showdown.
Trump assigns the teams to create and design a commemorative t-shirt for apparel giant Hanes that will "celebrate fifty years of t-shirt culture." Each team works with a renowned pop-culture artist-Romero Britto for "Magna" and Burton Morris for "Net Worth"-to manufacture the t-shirt and sell it for one day at the Manhattan fashion boutique "Scoop." The team that generates the most profit wins.
During the task, one team scores a marketing coupe by working with the artist's fan database while the other team bedazzles their product with rhinestones and kicks up profit considerably. Back in the boardroom, Trump ignores George & Carolyn's wishes and unleashes an unexpected cobra.
The winning duo takes off to the skies during a "Top Gun" air combat reward.
"NET WORTH": Alex plus one member from "Magna"
"MAGNA": Kendra, Tana, and Craig
