In a new article on the TV Guide website, Donald Trump admits that there is one contestant whose name might become more synonomous with The Apprentice than even the perennial Omarosa. The article comments on contestant Ivana from Boston. It reads:
Looking at Apprentice 2’s contestant roster, we noticed another uniquely named lady: 28-year-old venture capitalist Ivana from Boston. She shares a first name with the ex-Mrs. Trump! “I loved the fact that her name was Ivana because I couldn’t wait to see Donald’s face when he had to say her name in the boardroom,” exec producer Mark Burnett crows. “Donald cannot say that name without reacting, and it’s really going to make the audience laugh.”
“Mark didn’t mention that one to me, folks,” Trump interjects, then adds, “I love my former wife. She’s a wonderful woman and gave me three great children, so that puts her on a different level. The Ivana on the show I find very attractive, but I’m not in love with her. She’s a beautiful woman, a tough competitor and very interesting.”
Oddly enough, Fox recently signed Ivana Trump to participate in a new reality dating show.
The article also comments on NBC having more ‘supersized’ episodes of The Apprentice 2.
