Please help[edit]

Where can I find the full Episode 4? The official site does not have it anymore.

Source?[edit]

Can we have a citation from where this was confirmed? Jtrost 20:36, 2 December 2005 (UTC)


Citation needed[edit]

Please provide citation for the following:

  • During the 2006 Olympics in Torino, Donald Trump announced that 12 Olympians (six men and six women) from Team United States 2006 will be vying for a spot on this edition. Voting continues throughout the entire Olympics and will conclude on the Closing Ceremonies. CoolGuy 18:06, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

Applicants for the next season[edit]

I read on Yahoo's "The Apprentice" website that they are now accepting applications/conducting casting calls for the next season of The Apprentice. Some of the links on the site include "Apply Now! Apprentice: LA Edition" and "'Apprentice' Casting Call Scours First Coast for Donald Trump's Next Executive." Since season 5 is currently being aired, I assume this refers to season 6. The website is here: http://apprentice.tv.yahoo.com/trump/05/index.html. It sounds like either the Olympians won't be participating, or else that they will be mixed in with other applicants. Otherwise, why the casting calls? H-ko 15:02, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Wasn't the idea always that one Olympian and fifteen or so other applicants would be participating? I never got the impression that it would be an all-Olympian affair. --Maxamegalon2000 01:22, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

Where did this information come from? Like H-ko said, on the Yahoo Apprentice site it still says they are accepting applications. If you read it it says that the final selection process is in May for the next candidates. M.T. | Mr. Turcotte 23:20, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

According to this article here http://www.forbes.com/facesinthenews/2006/02/10/trump-apprentice-olympics-cx_gl_0210autofacescan11.html, the 12 Olympic athletes are vying for one spot on the show; they are not all competing as candidates on the show itself. Instead, people can (or could) vote for their favorite athlete from among the 12, and the winner supposedly will be one of the candidates on season 6. The remainder of the the season 6 candidates will presumably be selected as usual, via applications and auditions. Maybe someone could update the article? I'd do it, but a. I'm new here and have never altered a page (other than talk pages), and b. I have a lot of work to catch up on--sorry! --H-ko 06:45, 18 April 2006 (UTC)
The article, which hasn't been edited in over a month and a half, doesn't say that all of the candidates are going to be Olympians. --Maxamegalon2000 18:32, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

True Max, true. M.T. | Mr. Turcotte 02:17, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

George Ross[edit]

Citation please? If this cannot be verified, it shouldn't be on Wikipedia. Interesting possibility, nevertheless. CoolGuy 01:50, 21 June 2006 (UTC)

The article states: "George H. Ross, Trump's full-time boardroom judge from the first five seasons, returns mainly as a substitute judge when Donald Jr. is unavailable due to the show's Los Angeles filming schedule. [3]" Is this accurate? I do not recall seeing Ross even once on this season's show. (JosephASpadaro 04:04, 1 April 2007 (UTC))

Carolyn[edit]

Since Carolyn was never scheduled to be on season 6, I don't see any reason why we need to have information about why she was fired in this article. It can go in her article, on the main Apprentice page or in the notes for The Apprentice 7. But, since the beginning, Ivanka was always scheduled to be the one on this season. Sue Anne 21:35, 1 September 2006 (UTC)

I changed the tone of the paragraph you've mentioned to ensure that both Ivanka and Donald Jr. are more in the focus—this way both next-gen Trumps would supercede the past full-time judges from the first 5 seasons. — Vesther (U * T/R * CTD) 01:25, 2 September 2006 (UTC)

TV Citation[edit]

"In the sixth season the candidates will live in a mansion with a pool. Around the corner from the candidates mansion at the top of the hill Trump will live in a mansion. He will be able to look down on the candidates and see what they are up to." In the article it says that the citation is needed for this. I can confirm this information, it was from a preview that aired on TV. They specifically said in the preview that Trump would be able to "look down on" the candidates. How can we possibly site something that was only given to us in a televised preview? 68.72.70.2 21:06, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

You cite the television program, of course, just like one would cite a written article. --Maxamegalon2000 04:20, 6 October 2006 (UTC)
Unfortunately, I don't know how to do that. Could someone who knows how to use the CITE tag add this? The information came from the Season Finale for "The Apprentice 5", in a short promo they aired for the next season. 68.72.70.2 18:46, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

Teams (or lack thereof)[edit]

Given that it seems like we will have subteams come the 3rd episode, I wonder if there will ever be official team names. I suggest that we may want to use colors to identify teams to some extent, starting with red and blue for the two current teams and varying from there as needed. We should wait until Week 3 to see how it actually works out, but something to keep in mind. --Masem 20:44, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

THere will be team names as you can clearly see in the opening credits two team names are shown there on plaques like is always done in every season. When or how the team names will be given or done is not known yet. But if you go by the opening credits there most definitely will be team names given at some point in this season. I doubt they would make a mistake in leaving the team names in the credits and not eventually using them. Sure its possible but not likely. PantheraLeo 21:47, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
Someone added the team names and colors for the teams. However, the green is quite dark. Can it be changed to a slightly lighter tone of green or is there a reason for the dark green? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Fmmarianicolon (talkcontribs) 23:10, 13 January 2007 (UTC).

Point of view?[edit]

Many of the statements in this article are completely point of view: Martin was annoying. Frank worked hard. etc. Isn't Wikipedia supposed to be an encylopedia written from a neutral point of view? What's up with this? Crunch 00:16, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

  • We're trying to read the opinionated thought processes of Trump's mind, so it's hard not to come out with statements that aren't opinionated to explain why a player was fired. The best one can do is go by what Trump, Ivanka, and the rest of the team members said to come out with some reasons for the firing. I think that basically, if it's a statement of opinion, one has to assume for Apprentice that it's predicted that it's Trump's/team's opinion. Though it should be clear in the text that that's where the statement came from --Masem 00:47, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
  • You can do that by clearly and explicity stating exactly what happened. For example, "Jenn stated that Bill was annoying" or "Donald Trump said that he was firing Bob because he was lazy." Don't figure that "one can assume." That's not fitting for an encylopedia. Crunch 23:02, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
  • There is an interview with Martin here. http://www.buddytv.com/articles/the-apprentice/exclusive-interview-martin-han-2846.aspx wouldn't it be good to give some perspective without the editors, scorers, producers, etc.? (unsinged comment)
    • I agree with [[User::Crunch|Crunch]] which is why I've tried to add in "X said that Y did this" type languages in the reasons to avoid sounding like WP opinion and not the player's opinion. However, I think that going beyond what it outside the show, unless completely contradictory to what happened in the show, is too much info for WP - the goal of these episode snippets should be to briefly describe what happened in the show for encyclopedia content and not to dissect every motif that may be there.--Masem 16:55, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

External Links: Official and MySpace links?[edit]

Currently, the External Links section has links to all the official and MySpace websites for the contestants in addition to the official show site. Do we really need the official and MySpace links? - fmmarianicolon | Talk 23:38, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

Change the colors for candidate tables[edit]

The colors used for the Kinetic and Arrow teams are too hard to define. Change them to more bolder colors please... --24.78.100.28 06:09, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

I've switched to lighter but more distinct colors (bolder bg colors are more difficult to read). However, I can't see these colors on Firefox for some reason (I can see them in IE): I can see colors on other Wikitable pages, so I'm wondering if we've got a floating bracket or something that screwing it up. --Masem 06:57, 15 January 2007 (UTC)
I would like to see Kinetic's color as being light pink and Arrow's color being as light blue. Thanks. — Vesther (U * T/R * CTD) 13:58, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

Switched colors as they were too aggressive (we should avoid bright red when we can). --Bob 20:51, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

I'd say use pink for Kinetic and Light Blue for Arrow. Thanks. — Vesther (U * T/R * CTD) 21:07, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

Doesn't "Resigned on television" sound better?[edit]

"Resigned Week x" sounds kind of awkward, and I just wanted to bring this up: Don't you think in the tradition of saying "Not hired on television", better to say either "Quit on television" or "Resigned on television" on the app status instead? Resigned Week x sounds too traditional and IMO "Resigned on television" sounds a whole lot better. — Vesther (U * T/R * CTD) 14:02, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

"Resigned on television" seems awkward, it doesn't make sense. A week should be mentioned in that table since that tells you at a glance the fate of each interviewee and when they left, so I've put in "Resigned during Week x" which I think gets the point across. --Masem 15:15, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
I agree. "Resigned on television" just sounds silly... it's a TV show about hiring and firing, of course they're going to show it on television when somebody resigns. --Maelwys 15:40, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Unconfirmed Information[edit]

Please do some Internet research and use your search engines (i.e. Google) before you even, even, even, even, even, even, put any information into the article as I was forced to RV the last edit as being WP:VSCA. Also, please read the content carefully as some information in the Internet tends to be rumors while others are considered legit, so it's imperative that you do some Internet research before adding information to this article. Thank you for your cooperation. — Vesther (U * T/R * CTD) 13:56, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

ATTN: Firings[edit]

Please don't just assume that "X Candidate" will be fired in "X Week" as I had to remove the cruft associated with it. You should never judge a book by its cover. Please watch the episode before you make any assumptions as I have caught a speculation edit moments ago. There's no telling who and when he/she will be fired, so wait until after the episode airs at your local time zone before making speculation edits. — Vesther (U * T/R * CTD) 13:44, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Total agreement - same idea we use for Amazing Race or Survivor. General details of the episode if not yet aired (like sponsor, task, location) are fine, but the fate of any player in the game shouldn't be added until the episode airs. --Masem 14:41, 6 February 2007 (UTC)
It was apparent that the anon did the cruft edit by an act of racism, which is not allowed, but that's my observation why the cruft anon did such a cruft edit. — Vesther (U * T/R * CTD) 21:12, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

ATTN: Project Manager speculations[edit]

As you should know, Trump's twist is that the winning team's project manager will continue to be project manager until they lose the task. Now about the losing team, please don't make speculations as the winning team's project manager is the only one that's guaranteed to be confirmed until the project manager loses the task. Please don't insert information that isn't guaranteed as I had to do some reverts and a couple of rebufferings to tighten the suspense in one section of the article. Thanks. — Vesther (U * T/R * CTD) 14:13, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

I agree that it is not our place to speculate who might be project manager in a future episode; however, it is also not our place to editorialize events to "tighten the suspense". --Sue Anne 02:12, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
Honestly, information that is guaranteed is easily scrutinized. In this season, the winning team's project manager is GUARANTEED to be project manager until he/she loses. Surya being project manager isn't guaranteed unless we watch the episode. The reason why information has been bashed is because certain events from future episodes are never guaranteed unless the actual episode airs. In reality television, information is NEVER GUARANTEED unless it's announced either by a reliable Internet source or as the episode airs. — Vesther (U * T/R * CTD) 03:10, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Episode 5 Question[edit]

Does the following line contain a typo in the price figures? I believe that it is a typo, but I am not sure. The article says: "The price of each honey bottle is $4.99, buy 2 for $5." That does not seem to make sense. Perhaps the first figure should read $2.99? Does anyone know for sure? Thanks. (64.252.68.204 05:26, 16 February 2007 (UTC)Joe S.)

Episode 6 Question[edit]

For the reward, the article mentions professional surfers (plural), yet only names one (Lisa Andersen). Can some one insert the name of the second surfer who was part of the task reward? Thanks. (Joe S.)

Episode 7 Question[edit]

The Notes for Episode 7 state: "This was the first time somebody was fired in the middle of an ongoing boardroom session." Does that mean the first time this season ... or the first time ever in the history of the series? Does anyone know for sure? I think that it should be clarified. I thought that, in an earlier season, this actually happened once or twice before -- where Trump got irritated with a candidate and fired them on the spot without the formalities of the final boardroom. (JosephASpadaro 22:28, 6 March 2007 (UTC))

Episode 8 Question[edit]

This article specifically cites three different dates (June 24, June 25, and June 26) for the L. A. Galaxy soccer game, during which the GNC half-time task was held. Which of these three dates is correct? Thanks. (JosephASpadaro 06:55, 12 March 2007 (UTC))

Having received no replies to my above posted question, I am changing the article to read June 24. Thanks. (JosephASpadaro 22:29, 19 March 2007 (UTC))

Episodes Question[edit]

Instead of having such a long main page for the apprentice episode 6 can we give the episodes it's own article? From Zach111493 my talkmy contributions 23:55, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

If you took out the "episodes" sections (to create their own separate article), what would be left of the original article? Not much, right? (JosephASpadaro 02:55, 16 March 2007 (UTC))
Agreed. Also, full episode pages are frowned upon by the TV WikiProject unless they are significant. The individual parts would be too little on their own, so it's better to have a larger article for the season. --Masem 03:46, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

Candidates[edit]

What's the community consensus on articles about the candidates? I seem to recall in the past that the candidates each had separate articles, but this batch doesn't have any, other than Angela Ruggiero (notable as an Olympic athlete) and, oddly enough, Aaron Altscher (only notable as a candidate). Should articles for the remaining candidates be set up, or should the one on Aaron be deleted?--H-ko (Talk) 01:31, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

Based on discussion regarding Survivor contestants, I would strongly discourage doing individual articles for each contestant unless they have previous notarity. This is basically because most of the information would be duplicating what is at the official site and the contestants individual sites. --Masem 02:21, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

Ep 1 title[edit]

Given that NBC's been bad about putting these out there, I see that Tv.yahoo.com has "To have and have not" as the first ep title, while tv.com is "CA Car Wash". I can't find a good authoritative source (damn you, NBC!) - if anyone can help, please do. --Masem 02:23, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

To Have and Have Not is just a premise. Trump wanted this season to be the ultimate battle between the haves and the have-nots. — Vesther (U * T/R * CTD) 03:47, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

Final Episode Online?[edit]

I've seen all first 13 episodes of the 6'th season online at Yahoo (using the great direct links in the article). However, the 14'th and final one is not there. Any ideas where I catch it online?

Thanks! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 164.143.240.33 (talk) 17:03, 30 April 2007 (UTC).

Great! thanks again. I've just added this missing link to the article.

You're welcome. And thanks for adding the link to the article. (JosephASpadaro 01:46, 3 May 2007 (UTC))
