The Apprentice[edit]

Sun was one of the four finalists going into the finale of season 6 of The Apprentice, Donald Trump's business reality show. He and Stefani Schaeffer survived the first elimination, but Trump ultimately chose Stefani as his next apprentice.[5] On his blog following the firing, Sun stated that he was "dumbfounded" and confused as to what exactly the "things" Trump mentioned were, although he speculated that it might have been his decision to use the program to plug his Internet company.[6][7][8]
