The show will return to NBC on Feb. 12 at 9 p.m. in true Trump Apprentice form. The contestants will be put to work doing an array of challenges to prove themselves, while of course pushing their teammates under the bus. The leader of the best team receives money for their previously chosen charity, while the losing team has one of its members fired.
At the end of the competition one contestant will receive $250,00 for their charity, in addition to the money they raised as a team leader.
