THE FINAL FIVE CANDIDATES SWEETEN UP TO CANDY GIANT M&M'S� ON NBC'S "THE APPRENTICE" (DECEMBER 2, 9-10PM ET)

NEW YORK - December 1, 2004 -- M&M's join forces with Donald Trump and NBC's "The Apprentice" as the final five candidates create and sell a new candy bar (December 2, 9-10pm ET). "Anybody that knows me unfortunately knows that I love chocolate," says Donald Trump. And chocolate is definitely in abundance when the final five arrive at the M&M factory to mass produce the new "M-azing" bar. Candidates can only sell what they can produce and only if their product passes quality control.

Once armed with approved cases of "M-azing" bars, candidates have one day to sell the candy on the streets of New York. Both teams find unique ways of using sex to sell but their styles clash. One team has a major disagreement on pricing strategy. Back in the boardroom, Carolyn steals the show with a passionate plea to the candidates and Trump narrows the gap to four.

"With so many of our brands being so popular among a wide array of consumers, we're constantly looking for new and innovative partnerships to break through," said Janis Smith-Gomez, vice president of marketing at Masterfoods USA, "With the M-azing bar task on the Apprentice, we knew we had a hit. This first-rate, highly rated show gave us a great springboard to showcase our great new product."

"MOSAIC": Sandy & Jennifer M.

"APEX": Ivana, Kelly and Kevin

Week 12 Boardroom Exemption: Kelly
