Spoiler Ahead

Apprentice 6 candidates reportedly performed halftime infomercial at LA Galaxy game

The Los Angeles-set Apprentice 6 is now taping in LA, and an early report suggests they’re not doing much to hide their presence.

At the Los Angeles Galaxy major league soccer game Saturday night, fans were treated to a halftime show apparently presented by the candidates. The show was reportedly sponsored by GNC, and each of the two teams had to present a brief halftime show that was, naturally, a commercial for the sponsor.

It was not well received. One poster on the BigSoccer forum wrote, “That was a new low for the franchise. Anyone else disgusted by that?” Fans in attendance report such poor audience reaction that some audience members apparently refused to vote for a “winner.” sportsfan-quakes gives the details:

    “GNC had two ‘Skits’ which were shown on the field, each lasted about 4-5 minutes. The first one was supposed to show ‘Joe Normal’ guy in a boxing or wrestling rink, running out of energy to fight, and then he gets some kind of help from GNC supplements and all of a sudden he wins his match. Whoever the announcer was had to try to get the fans to chant ‘Go GNC’ or something like that. We thought that was pretty bad, but then they brought out a second skit.

    This one had people in outfits that were like GNC supplement bottles, and they had an obstacle course that was supposed to show how the GNC supplements could help you go faster or something. Then there was a point where the people/supplements were running through a blocked artery or something. But the worst part of the second skit was that the two girls/women who were announcing had the most earsplitting, shrieky voices you can imagine. It was sheer torture just listening to them.

    Then, at the end the fans were supposed to hold up a colored card to indicate which team/skit was better. Everyone was so disgusted that they didn’t vote. So if this was a contest for the Apprentice, they’ll have to do some really creative editing to show any of it and not make everyone look like fools (unless that was the intent).”

It sounds like Vegetable Porn Redux! (Remember the Dove task from The Apprentice 3?)

I will post this here to keep all spoilers in one place!!!

I found it over at TWoP ......

Just found this on YouTube:

Last June, a group of people on a trip from LA to Ohio filmed a video of the first leg of their task that they actually added to YouTube last June 30. What is significant about this video is that they are on a tour bus and that James and Stefani are the guides, with Ivanka also showing up.

Good find, Wallyhorse. This must be the third task: here's the blurb from NBCUMV.COM, which I haven't seen posted so far:

"Episode No.603"

CONTESTANTS CREATE HOLLYWOOD SIGHTSEEING TOURS -- Last week's losers do battle against each other as the winners get a week of rest and relaxation. The moguls-in-training devise a new twist on the Hollywood sightseeing tour, and the tours themselves are the strangest sights of all. The winners get bragging rights; the losers see a teammate go in a shocking finish.

An important detail: the winning team from the second task gets to skip the third task, so this would mean another loss by, what is the name? Arrow Corp?

ETA: Another description of the second task, also from NBCUMV.COM:
"Episode No.602"
CONTESTANTS DIVE INTO SWIMSUIT COMPETITION -- The candidates dive into the world of swimsuit design, creating new lines for a beach fashion show. One team struggles with a runaway designer while the other argues over the finer points of a bikini. The winners enjoy the playboy lifestyle with special guest Hugh Hefner while the losers face Donald in the boardroom

That doesn't make much sense -- why allow the winning team a pass when the other team is already down two people? Trump wants the losing team automatically down by three people? The winners win and then still have to go back to the tent, since the entire old winning team still has the beds in the mansion? What a raw deal. Gerrymandering.

We now know then if the sightseeing bus is task three, and the winning team in task two is off, then Heidi's team wins the second task, and we also know that James and Stefani are NOT fired after task two.

ETA ..... Someone at SUCKS says that Aaron is also seen in the sightseeing bus clip, so it looks like he also survives the episode 2 boardroom!!!

Another one found at TWoP.....

One more update: according to a press release on the El Pollo Loco website, the task they're sponsoring is scheduled to air on January 28th, making it the fourth task. From the press release:

El Pollo Loco will be featured on episode four of the highly-anticipated sixth season, The Apprentice: Los Angeles. Set to air on Sunday, January 28, 2007 from 9:00 – 10:00 p.m. PT/ET, the segment will feature two teams of ambitious contestants as they roll up their sleeves at two Los Angeles-area El Pollo Loco restaurants. Trying not to ruffle the feathers of fellow team members, contestants test their culinary aptitude as they create, market and sell their own version of El Pollo Loco’s signature Pollo Bowl®. El Pollo Loco’s Original Pollo Bowl®, a longtime customer favorite, combines plenty of the chain’s famous citrus-marinated, flame-grilled chicken breast with pinto beans, rice, cilantro, onion and Pico de Gallo.

To provide El Pollo Loco fans their own apprentice opportunity, beginning January 28 and continuing through February 11, the chain will host a mock online version of The Apprentice:

Los Angeles task with an enter-to-win “Create Your Own Pollo Bowl®” contest on the El Pollo Loco website at All who enter will receive a coupon toward their next purchase of the Original Pollo Bowl® at any of El Pollo Loco’s 359 locations nationwide. The winner will receive tickets to The Apprentice: Los Angeles live season

I'm not surprised at all that Heidi's team hauls ass  :lol:
