NBC paid Donald Trump in excess of $213 million for 14 seasons of his reality-competition show, “The Apprentice,” the real-estate mogul and Republican Presidential candidate said in an election filing Wednesday.
“During the 14 seasons of ‘The Apprentice,’ Mr. Trump was paid $213,606,575,” Trump’s campaign said in a release detailing information he provided to the Federal Election Commission.
NBC was not able to offer immediate comment.
The amount of money NBC is said to have paid Trump likely dwarfs the amount of revenue the network secured from “Apprentice” advertisers in recent seasons. The average cost of a 30-second spot in “The Apprentice” for the 2014-2015 season was a paltry $64,900, according to a Variety survey of primetime ad prices.

Trump should have paid NBC $213 million dollars for running his ego boosting vanity show.
