The Apprentice: Martha Stewart cast unveiled

The named and identities of the 16 people who will compete to become Martha Stewart’s apprentice on The Apprentice: Martha Stewart have been announced. They’re 10 women and six men ranging in age from 22 to 42, and they will live together in a loft, and be fired (or whatever) in a “conference room,” according to a press release that announces these synonyms as if they’re earth-shattering.

The cast includes a magazine publisher, the creator of Aim Talk, a natural foods chef, a TV news anchor, and just one interior designer.

Pictures of Martha and Donald Trump interacting awkwardly are available on NBC’s press site, as are photos of the cast members.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
