Martha reveals her theme song, first task

Judging by the rate at which we’re receiving information about The Apprentice: Martha Stewart, we should know who won by the time it debuts. Yesterday, Martha appeared before TV critics, and revealed two more things about her reality show: its theme song and first task. If you consider these things spoilers, stop reading now.

Replacing the O’Jays’ “For Love of Money” is “Sweet Dreams” by the Eurythmics. As the New York Times reports, “The song includes such lines as ‘everyone is looking for something’ and ‘I’m gonna know what’s inside you.’ Mr. [Mark] Burnett said Ms. Stewart was a big fan of the Eurythmics lead singer, Annie Lennox.”

The teams’ first task will be mentally and physically challenging: Mark “Burnett said the first challenge requires each team to modernize a classic fairy tale — ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ for one team, ‘Hansel and Gretel’ for the other — and test each on children,” TV Week reports. Not to be cynical, but that sounds like a challenge produced by someone who was fired from Big Brother 6‘s challenge department.
