Apprentice 6 losers will sleep in tents and excrete in port-a-potties

NBC has released details about the upcoming sixth season of Apprentice 6, which debuts in January, and its “shocking new twists.”

Most entertainingly, the teams who lose each week will be punished: “the contestants on the winning team will get to live in a luxurious mansion” while “contestants on the losing team will have to sleep outside in tents in the back yard of the mansion with outdoor showers and port-a-potties,” according to an NBC press release.

In addition to living in the mansion, “the winning project manager each week will remain project manager until they lose, plus they will also sit in the boardroom and help advise Trump on who he should fire each week from their opposing team.” Of course, Trump doesn’t exactly listen to Carolyn, George, or anyone else, so who knows if he’ll listen to the winning project manager.

NBC has also revealed the 18 cast members, most of whom are in their 20s; they are as follows (more details about each person are in the press release:

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
