Sir Alan will do UK Apprentice for free.
Sir Alan M. Sugar, Donald Trump’s doppelganger on the UK’s version of The Apprentice, will do the show for free. Demonstrating an ego approaching Trump’s, he explains this to the New York Times by saying, “Personally, I have made more money than I will spend in my lifetime.” Speaking of ego, Trump has an easy way to, as he says, “solve my ego problems” that might arise from possible changes to the show’s format or details. Trump’s solutions: “No. 1, it is another country. No. 2, Mark Burnett and I are 50-50 partners in the franchise so we want it to do well.” The show tapes this summer and airs next January on BBC2.
