Apprentice 3 cast is older, some have kids, there are no Ivy League grads.

Apprentice 3 cast is older, some have kids, there are no Ivy League grads.
Although NBC has yet to update the show’s web site with anything more than a picture of the new teams, the network has unveiled the cast of The Apprentice 3 in a press release. The cast will be divided into teams based upon their level of education–high school grads versus college grads, with the idiotic team names of Networth and Magna, respectively)–but they’re different in other ways, too. As the AP notes, this cast is very different than the first two: “There are more older candidates (the oldest is 41), more candidates with children (at least three are parents), more candidates with real estate experience (at least six) and no Ivy League graduates.” Plus, there are only two people who will compete for the title of most unusual name: prosecutor Bren and sales executive Tana.
