The Apprentice

As the Sept. 22 premiere of The Apprentice nears, NBC has let slip that there are at least two twists planned for the fourth season. For one, winning project managers will only be exempt from possible elimination the following week if their fellow team members grant them that privilege. As for the other wrinkle  which will be sprung on the 18 contenders within the premiere's first 10 minutes  all we have to go on is NBC's promise that it "will give the candidates a serious run for their money." In other words: Find the doubloon in Donald's hair and it's yours!
