Olympian Apprentice candidate says show is “L.A. style” and “totally new” with “new twists”

The Olympic athlete selected by viewers to appear on The Apprentice 6 says that this new season is “a totally new Apprentice.”

Hockey player Angela Ruggiero says that the show, which taped at the beginning of last summer, has different tasks than we’re used to. “I can tell you this is a totally new Apprentice. The tasks are totally new. It’s L.A. style completely. They threw all these new twists in,” she tells the CP.

Of course, she offers no details, nor does she describe what “L.A. style” actually means. “I don’t want their lawyers mad at me. I signed a big, fat agreement,” she says of revealing the show’s outcome or other details.
