[via press release from NBC]

TRUMP TOSSES A MEATBALL AND CANDIDATES CREATE NEW PIZZA FOR DOMINO'S ON NBC'S "THE APPRENTICE" (MARCH 31, 9-10PM ET)

A Fight Breaks Out Among Two Candidates and Chris Confronts His Tobacco Addiction

NEW YORK -- March 29, 2005 -- Donald Trump, sporting a short new haircut, begins this week's episode of NBC's "The Apprentice" (March 31, 9-10pm ET) by once again evening the teams as "Net Worth" steals one candidate from "Magna." The new team member immediately clashes with a colleague and their resulting fight creates immediate tension during the task.

Trump, an unabashed pizza lover, delivers this week's task by deadpanning "I love meatballs on my pizza." He then assigns the two teams to work with pizza giant Domino's on creating a new style of pizza, making it in a customized mobile trailer and then selling it on the streets of New York. The team with the most profit from sales wins.

The winning team is treated to an exclusive breakfast with Trump in his penthouse apartment and an opportunity to get to know him better during this crucial stage in the competition.

Back in the boardroom, Trump struggles to evoke passion out of one candidate but deals with passion overload from another. For the first time, Trump warns one candidate that they are in danger of being fired as they leave the first portion of the boardroom before returning for the final grilling.

Remaining Candidates:

"NET WORTH": Stephanie, Chris, Angie, and one candidate from "Magna"

"MAGNA": Kendra, Alex, Tana, Bren, Craig

Week 10 Exemption: Craig

"We think Domino's and 'The Apprentice' are a great match," says Ken Calwell, chief marketing officer, Domino's Pizza. "We're a fun, upbeat brand that blends well with the hot, popular culture tone of the show. In the tradition of 'The Apprentice,' Domino's Pizza also has a big surprise at the end of this episode, with a new pizza of our own, which we're sure viewers will love."
