Apprentice 3 UpdateBy Marc Wilkofsky Posted: Jan 21, 2005
The third season has begun! After Donald Trump fooled THE APPRENTICE candidates into believing it was once again men vs. women, the teams were divided into "Book Smart" college degree-holders (branding themselves Magna Corp.) and "Street Smart" candidates with an education from the school of life (Trump called them "High School" before they chose the name Net Worth).
The task of promoting new Burger King hamburgers proved to be right up Net Worth's alley, and the poorly prepared Magna went up in flames. At the boardroom "meating," Danny and Alex quaked, but Trump cooked Project Manager Todd's goose.

SOAP OPERA WEEKLY 's Predictions for the Final Four (all four are still in):
Alex: His theology and Latin degrees alone reveal his impressive mind, and his solid speaking — and lobbying — skills will please Trump.
Brian: He's got the creativity and business acumen, having made a million from selling glow-in-the-dark necklaces.
Kendra: This entrepreneur and talk radio show host may prove to be one of the most resourceful and dedicated players.
Tara: Watch this one — her NYC know-how and heavy management experience should keep her on the successful side.
The dark horses: lively Angie and tough Bren!
