In a nutshell: Pardon us for sounding a bit like the master of self-promotion himself (a.k.a. Donald Trump), but we must ask: Is there anyone who didn't see The Apprentice last season? Didn't think so. In season two of this fan fave, 18 candidates from all walks of life (from Ivy League MBA holders to street entrepreneurs with no college degrees) vie to become The Donald's right-hand (wo)man. Each week, the two teams will compete on rigorous business tasks while living together in a sweet Manhattan loft. While those who underperform face getting canned, the victor gets a six-figure salary and the opportunity to work for Trump. Last season's winner, Rancic, who briefly dated next Bachelorette Jen Schefft in the off-season, will also appear, subbing for Ross in a few episodes. Do you love The Donald or love to hate him? Who gets the Sam Solovey award for most annoying apprentice? Is there a twosome you'd like to see have a showmance à la Nick and Amy? Talk about all things Apprentice here.
UPDATE: Hey all -- We have a new forum for the third season of Apprentice. So come on over to the new board to continue the discussion. See you there!
