The Final Four Apprenti Try on Hanes This Week on NBC's "The Apprentice"

[via press release from NBC]



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.

Remaining Candidates:
"NET WORTH": Alex plus one member from "Magna"
"MAGNA": Kendra, Tana, and Craig

"The classic T-shirt is a must-have in everyone's wardrobe, helping people express their individual style for an amazing fifty years," said Sidney Falken, Hanes Brand Champion. "Hanes was thrilled to partner with The Apprentice in celebration of this milestone, and we were so impressed with both original designs that we are going to begin selling them immediately following the air-date." Consumers can visit Hanes.com on how to buy these Hanes T-Shirts.
