Meet Trump's Hand-Picked 'Apprentices'

(Posted September 1, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

LOS ANGELES ( Now that he's let Martha Stewart have the "Apprentice" spotlight for a few days, Donald Trump is stepping back into the forefront with his version of the show -- for which, he says, he personally chose the cast this time.

The 18 candidates on Trump's fourth "Apprentice" include two former beauty queens, a Rhodes scholar, a former NFL player and, according to some news reports, an ex-stripper turned entrepreneur (sadly, neither the official NBC bios nor the news sources say which player that is). The group also includes a number of people who have already banked their first millions.

Yep, sounds like Trump had a hand in the casting.

"For the first time, I hand-picked an 'Apprentice' cast, and I'm thrilled with the results," Trump says. "This is the best reality show cast I've ever encountered. They have it all: beauty, brains, and big bucks."

The beauty queens are Jennifer Murphy, a 26-year-old who represented Oregon in the Trump-owned Miss USA pageant last year, and Marshawn Evans, who was third runner-up in the 2002 Miss America competition, representing the Discrict of Columbia. Chris Valletta had a cup of coffee in the NFL with the New Orleans Saints and was on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad following an All-Big 12 career at Texas A&M.

Trump's "Apprentice" is scheduled to premiere Thursday, Sept. 22 on NBC, one day after "The Apprentice: Martha Stewart" makes its debut. As usual, the candidates will be vying for a job and a six-figure salary with one of Trump's business concerns.
