[via press release from NBC]


Jeffrey Katzenberg Guest Stars

"The Apprentice" to Air Monday, May 15 in Special Time-Slot 10 PM ET/PT

NEW YORK � May 11, 2006 � Following a special two-hour episode of "Deal or No Deal," NBC's "The Apprentice" will air on Monday, May 15 at 10-11 p.m. ET/PT. The final five candidates are challenged to create an in-store display area at Wal-Mart for customers to demo the new Xbox 360. The team to build the most compelling in-store promotion, as determined by Wal-Mart and Microsoft executives, wins the task and a trip to Hollywood to meet DreamWorks Animation Studios Executive, Jeffrey Katzenberg.

After a corporate re-shuffle, one candidate feels undermined by his team who isn't taking his ideas seriously, while the other team worries that their display will not be completed in time. The winners meet with Katzenberg, who coaches them through a voice-over session for the new animation film "Over the Hedge," starring Bruce Willis and Steve Carell.

Sean (London) takes the lead on the NBC.com voting polls with 29 percent barely inching out Roxanne (Austin, Tx.) who follows with 28 percent of the votes and Lee close behind with 23 percent.

Additionally, viewers of NBC's "The Apprentice" can roll in the dough with a weekly Grand Prize random drawing of $10,000 by playing the live interactive "Get Rich With Trump" game during each episode. "Get Rich With Trump" can be played by sending a text message from a cell phone or by logging onto NBC.com/APPRENTICE.

Please log onto NBC.com for complete rules.

"Gold Rush" - Lee

"Synergy" - Allie, Roxanne, Sean, Tammy
