Trump Tower - "Apprentice"

After tonights episode expect to hear some news on Trump Tower. The tower will be highlighted in the final episode and the winner will either select his/her destination or be awarded a working spot for TTT.
My souce of course coming from my cousin who lives in New York and has close ties with NBC and the show.

I doubt that the American viewers of The Apprentice would even know about the TTT, cuz it's all the way up north in cold lil' Toronto.

Interesting...I really didn't think that would be the case since Trump is just lending his name to the project.

Yea...but do you think anybody else in the project is going to turn down that kind of exposure? I mean...they got Trump involved for a reason, yea?

I do believe that Trump Tower Toronto will be a winner's option... but the project is quite a while off, so I don't know if he'll offer it now, but then again on the first season of The Apprencetice the winner got to oversee the Chicago Tower and that project is still in excavation.

Maybe the next season of the Apprentice or the fifth installment.

No matter when though, I am afraid, also, that the winner will turn down TTT!

Let's hope not!

Well, obviously not...but if he's just lending his name to the project, I wouldn't think his "apprentice" would really have anything to do since the job they'd usually be offered is probably being done by someone else.

Of course, I guess it wouldn't be surprising if they cleared a space just so the winner could work there.

But I'd figure Trump has enough of his own projects for the winner to choose from.

^I agree, I'd be shocked if TTT turns up as an option with Trump's contibution being no more than the right to use his name and management of the hotel not to mention the obvious that Toronto is outside of the continental USA

I thought Martha Stewart replaces Trump next season

Trump Tampa would probably be an option before Toronto. If Toronto is an option then the winner would have to get a special visa and all these other techncalities so he could work in Canada.

The marketing might be done by Trump though, since his name is on the building. The winner might simply be in charge of marketing... though I guess the current person in charge of that would have to move over.

Both of the final candidates suck. I wouldn't want them to be involved with TTT.

If you want a career in business and or development, why not? You'll get a lot of exposure, the opportunity to make a lot of high-end contacts, and let's face it, you'll certainly learn a lot. Besides, it's certainly not bad to have on your resume!

I like Tana actually. She's the kind of person I'd want to work with...friendly and easygoing, but stict when she needs to be. She's a very good leader...or at least has the kind of leadership I value.

I think thats why there are so many applying, for the experience and name recognition. Lets face it, $250K US in most cities is fantastic pay, but is a spit in the bucket in NYC, especially big time for an executive position.

She seems like an airhead to me. But I guess, it takes one to know one.

You consider yourself an airhead?

She may "seem" like an airhead but in reality she's quite an accomplished business woman.

With my own business, what I value most, aside from the necessary skills people bring to the table, are those who understand the value of forming positive business relationships and have excellent people skills.

When you have the stress of meeting deadlines, etc. the last thing you need is someone with an attitude adding to the stress.
