Apprentice TV Show star gets nice paycheck

Donald Trump draws crowds like a rock star, so he might as well go on tour and get paid like one, too.
Fresh off two $1.5 million speaking engagements before admiring throngs of wealth seekers, Trump has agreed to continue as headliner of The Learning Annex Real Estate Wealth Expo Tour of 2006, the center said on Wednesday.
Trump, whose starring role in "The Apprentice" reality television show has made him a household name worldwide, will earn $1.5 million for each one-hour talk that he delivers in 2006 for a total of $15 million, plus expenses, The Learning Annex said.
"In the 25-year history of The Learning Annex, there's never been a bigger draw than Donald Trump," said Bill Zanker, president of the educational company that offers short courses on career growth as well as the art of lap dancing, picking up girls and contacting the dead through seances.
"He's worth every dollar we're paying him and then some," Zanker said.
Like, Bono, Madonna and The Boss, Trump's tour will hit major U.S. cities including New York, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Philadelphia and Boston. Cities in Europe and Asia may be added later, Zander told Reuters
