Donald Trump announces new, recession-affected 'Apprentice' cast

The new season of Donald Trump and Mark Burnett's reality competition "The Apprentice" (the non-celebrity edition) returns to NBC on September 16. And while taping for the series' tenth season has already concluded, the 16 competitors are only now being revealed.

"I am very excited to have the civilian version of 'The Apprentice' back on the air this fall," Trump says, subtly pointing out that celebrities should never be mistaken for normal people. "The new edition will combine the realities of today's economic downturn with the grittiness, drama and excitement of the original series. Each of this season's 16 contestants has been hit hard by the economy and they are fighting back."

This may surprise you, but we haven't had a regular "Apprentice" since the economy took a toilet bath. The last run of the series concluded in April, 2007, so producers clearly had an especially large crop of candidate to choose from.
