E!'s Kristin: S9 will have 18 contestants
Friday, July 23, 2004
From boobooloo: Is it true that Bill is going to be an advisor on The Apprentice 2?
Yes. Sorta. That's what Jeff Zucker led us to believe, but Trump had a different take. "Bill will be filling in for George for a few episodes. George had to take an important business trip during the season." So, Bill won't be around for the entire season, because he also has that building to run, you know. No time for the telly. Also, this season on both The Apprentice and Survivor, there are going to be 18 contestants (seems Burnett might have a trick up his sleeve, hmmm?)
Also, sounds like The Apprentice might have a different set-up this time, not girls versus guys, but Burnett wouldn't get into it. Trump also said we'll see some "heated disagreements" between Carolyn, George and him.
