News from The Apprentice TV Show

Will Cincinnati’s Surya Yalamanchili be hired or fired on “The Apprentice” next year?
The 24-year-old Procter & Gamble brand manager is one of 18 members on the sixth season of Donald Trump’s reality competition. The series premieres Jan. 7 (9:30-11 p.m., Channels 5, 2).
Yalamanchili, former class president and commencement speaker at Rutgers University, is a media stratetgist for the company.

Born in Norristown, Pa., and raised in Old Bridge, N.J., he started a successful e-commerce strategy company at age 15 and worked full-time at a Web company while attending college, according to NBC.
Yalamanchili wants to be the next “Apprentice” because he “can operate with the passion and energy of an entrepreneur and bring along the discipline and savvy of a corporate executive,” he tells NBC.To boost interest in “The Apprentice,” which dropped to No. 53 last season, the winning team each week will live in a mansion, while the losers sleep in tents and use portable bathrooms in the back yard. The winning project manager will remain in that position until he or she loses, and will sit in on boardroom discussions with Trump, Invanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr.
