I really like what Mark Burnett does. I had been a big fan of Donald Trump starring “The Apprentice”. Now, The Mark Burnett company is willing to launch Indian versions of their popular American shows including The Contender, India‚Äôs Top Model and a game show called Amnesia. So I’m now thinking, who will be the Indian “Donald Trump” in the show.

For those who don’t know about ‘The Apprentice” here’s a quickie: 16 contestants from across the country are chosen to participate in the show. These contestants are from different walks of life. Some of them are real life entrepreneurs, some of them are MBAs, students etc. These 16 contestants are divided into teams and the teams are given the tasks. The team that wins a task gets a prize and the team that fails, must face the ‘BOSS’ [ Donald Trump]. Donald Trump then picks up the weakest performer in the team and fires him/her from the team. Thus in each episode, one (or in some cases,more) participant is/are eliminated. The winner, gets a chance to be the apprentice to Donald Trump.

All fine!

Now, who do you think will be the ‘BOSS’? My best bet is Dr. Vijay Mallya. :mrgreen: Let me know what you think through this poll –

    So do I.. I think his flamboyant persona will boost the ratings the most! I’m a big fan of “The Apprentice” too.

    If they are going to Indianise it, I’d rather stay away. Looks like another reality show being copied. I hope they will not ‘script’ the show the way they script others

    Reliance has the widest berth to pull this off. Although I think Mr. Biyani would benefit the most!!

    Btw, change the theme, this one has a bad landing page!!
