Stefani hired as Trump’s sixth Apprentice

Stefani Schaeffer, who never served as a project manager on The Apprentice 6, was hired by Donald Trump during the life finale, becoming his second female apprentice. Stefani chose to work on a Trump project in the Dominican Republic.

It was an unremarkable end to a season that started big with twists but ended weakly, with four annoying candidates. E! Online says that this season was “The Apprentice’s lowest-rated installment to date — 7.4 million viewers a week.”

During the live finale, Trump fired the candidates in rough order of annoyingness: first Frank, then Nicole, and finally James, leaving Stefani as the only real choice. Her former teammates supported her, too; Heidi told Trump, “I love strong women, and I think Stefani is the epitome of the strong woman.” Surya told Trump “you’re on your own” when Trump asked for his opinion, but suggested that there’s a “young man named Sanjaya who’s looking for a job.” So witty.

Stefani played off of the controversial conclusion to The Apprentice 4 and told Trump, “Hire me, and let me hire James.”
