Trump takes Hollywood

Don't look now, but The Donald is heading this way. The next season of The Apprentice will be shot here in Los Angeles, because, producer Mark Burnett says, "Donald has so many recent West Coast projects that it made perfect sense to change locations and along with it change the flavor of the weekly tasks." We are just waiting to get to the bottom of a freeway exit and see the wanna-be-Apprentices selling bags of oranges.

Speaking of the wanna-be-Apprentices, the show will also be hosting contestant tryouts in LA (plus 25 other cities). Start padding your resume now and take a look at the application in advance of the March auditions. Sure, you can send in a tape, but why not walk in and wow 'em.

We figure the what the show really needs is a brand new Omorosa. Someone who is so horrid your jaw drops, who blatantly lies, backstabs, and on top of all that is freakishly self-pitying. Someone, in fact, who has no interest in working for Donald Trump but a ton of interest in becoming famous. She might have made us feel all dirty, but she made the show interesting.

If you've got the itch to be on The Apprentice, we think that's your ticket. Plus, getting fired has gotta be better than working for Trump.
