The Final Three Candidates Face Intense Interviews on NBC's "The Apprentice: Martha Stewart"

[via press release from NBC]



NEW YORK - December 12, 2005 - The countdown is on for the remaining three "Apprentice: Martha Stewart" candidates as they face their toughest task yet - to interview with top executives from Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia (December 14, 9-10 pm ET on NBC). After the penultimate firing of the season, Martha Stewart then issues the final two tasks - coordinate "The Liz Claiborne Fashion Show & Charity Benefit," and run the "Apple & Eve presents The Big Apple Circus" - which will culminate with the live conference room hiring from Chelsea Television Studios December 21 (9-10pm ET).

Proceeds from the fashion show and the Big Apple Circus go to Safe Horizon and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, respectively.

The executives featured in the December 14th interview process include:

Susan Lyne, President & CEO of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Jonathan Chernes, Sr. VP, Retail Merchandising Gail Towey, Chief Creative Officer Margaret Roach, Editorial Director of Publications

With the two finalists in place and the tasks disseminated, Stewart tells each finalist to choose three former candidates to help execute these tasks. The teams' ensuing mayhem begs the question; will they get it done in time?

Remaining Candidates: Jim, Dawna, and Bethenny

About Liz Claiborne

"We are delighted to work with Martha's show on this task. It is a natural partnership of two iconic brands - Martha Stewart and Liz Claiborne," commented Liz Claiborne Inc. chairman and chief executive officer, Paul R. Charron.
