'APPRENTICE' CANDIDATES COURT 90 BILLION DOLLAR FASHION INDUSTRY AS EACH TEAM DEVISES NEW CLOTHING LINE AND PRODUCES FASHION SHOW (OCTOBER 14, 9-10PM ET)
NEW YORK -- October 13, 2004 -- Donald Trump introduces the 13 remaining candidates to the glitzy 90 billion dollar fashion industry during the sixth episode of NBC's "The Apprentice," (October 14, 9-10pm ET). Each team interviews and selects an emerging fashion designer who will work with the team to create a new women's clothing line. The new designs will be showcased at a high profile Avon fall fashion show produced by Gen Art at The St. Regis Hotel.
Models from Trump Model Management will strut the new wears. Top retail fashion buyers will determine which designs to purchase for their stores. The team that earns the most money selling their fashion line wins.
One team clashes with their designer while another team member becomes a nuisance. Observing the men's team pick out fabric, we see a new side to Carolyn Kepcher. Back in the boardroom, George Ross goes on the attack and Trump fires his sixth candidate.
"MOSAIC": Raj, John, Chris, Kelly, Andy, Wes, and Kevin
"APEX": Ivana, Jennifer M., Stacy R., Sandy, Elizabeth and Maria
Week 5 Boardroom Exemption: Chris
