LIL' KIM, FAT JOE, MOBY AND EVE GUEST STAR ON NBC'S "THE APPRENTICE"

TRUMP ROCKS TASK WITH MUSIC NETWORK FUSE ON NBC'S STAR-STUDDED "THE APPRENTICE" MARCH 10, 9-10PM ET

Guest Stars Include: Lil' Kim, Eve, Fat Joe, Barenaked Ladies, Moby, Gene Simmons, Lil John, Simple Plan, New Found Glory and Jadakiss

NEW YORK -- March 8, 2005 -- Ten of the biggest names in the rock and rap music industry, including Lil' Kim, Eve and Fat Joe, join Donald Trump and the remaining 10 candidates during NBC's star-studded "Apprentice" (March 10, 9-10pm ET). Barenaked Ladies, Gene Simmons, Moby, Lil John, Simple Plan, New Found Glory and Jadakiss also headline on this week's episode, marrying the worlds of business and music.

Candidates join forces with music television network Fuse as they petition these 10 celebrities to donate a "personal experience" that will be auctioned off live on Fuse's popular "Daily Download" program. After enlisting each of the music artists for a donation, "Magna" and "Net Worth" select team members to pitch the auction items live on television. The team that brings in the most money will be declared the winner and the proceeds benefit the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.

The blending of the corporate and rock worlds spark some truly hilarious moments as candidates struggle to "vibe" with the artists and to speak their "language." One of the women encounters an overly flirtatious rocker and one of the men's sexist comments offends the women on his team.

"MAGNA": Stephanie, Bren, Erin, Kendra, and Alex

"NET WORTH": John, Angie, Chris, Tana, and Craig.

Week 8 Exemption: Stephanie

"Let's just say that 'The Don' of television made us 'an offer we couldn't refuse,'" comments Robert Weiss, Head of Entertainment, FUSE. "We're extremely pleased for the support lent by Mr. Trump, Mark Burnett, NBC and the ten artists who came out and dug deep to make this such a memorable experience. 'The Apprentice' will expose millions of new viewers to Fuse, and music television may never be the same again."
