Bill Rancic, of NBC’s The Apprentice fame, is the first person to ever win a competition on television for becoming a United States citizen. In November 2007, Bill and his family were featured on an episode of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire where he answered four multiple-choice questions correctly. He eventually passed the Citizenship Test which involved 100 questions with an 85% success rate. And in June 2009, the Rancics became American citizens.
The first winner of the reality game show The Apprentice was Bill Rancic from Chicago, Illinois. He won $250,000 and a position as one of Donald Trump’s managerial apprentices. The first season of the reality show debuted in January 2004 and ran for thirteen episodes until March 2004. In 2010, the show’s ninth season began airing on NBC.

“In December 2002, we could only imagine that in a few short months, a reality show would actually be on the air, and it would call its star Donald J. Trump’s Apprentice.”<br> http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=53793679
“Donald Trump’s Apprentice was by far the most interesting audition I saw all day,” says Matthew Dickman, a contestant who appeared on the show last week. “It is a program that accurately represents the American dream.”<br> http://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/s-m-dickman-article-1.811317
“There can be no doubt that Trump’s Apprentice is a new form of reality television where the winner gets more than just a $250,000 paycheck,” says Bob Butler, author of “The Reality Show Book: How to Get on Reality TV”. “Just when we need it most, reality TV has done it again. And if you don’t believe me, all you have to do is look at the ratings for Sunday night’s premiere.”<br> http://www.alltvshows.com/article/245908/Glenn-Beck-Trump_s-Apprentice-is-Reality.html
“Donald Trump has given us another reality show,” says Joseph Belth, a professor at New York University and author of “Television After Television: Postmodernism and the Process of Visual Production”. “His Apprentice is more like Survivor or America’s Next Top Model than anything else.”<br> http://www.newsobserver.com/news/20061223/entertainment_1m23script.story?coll=ent-entertainment
“There’s a new reality TV show in town, and it involves Donald Trump,” says Gary Alan Fine, an assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. “It’s not exactly ‘Survivor’, but it’s a type of show that hasn’t been seen on television before.”<br> http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/tv/la-et-tvreview-donald-trump-the-apprentice-20121120,0,59655.story
“The Apprentice is undoubtedly a new kind of reality television: one in which the winner gets less than $250,000 cash and not much else in return. The new reality TV is also a new kind of television: one that resembles politics more than entertainment,” says Susan Douglas, an associate professor at the University of Arizona and author of “Reality Killed the Audience Starved for Reality”.
“Donald Trump’s Apprentice is more than just a TV show,” says Lilian Katz, an assistant professor at Towson University.<br> http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/12/02/AR2007120201290.html
“Donald Trump’s Apprentice is not unlike some college courses I’ve taken: interesting, certainly, but not really fun or enjoyable to watch,” says Marclay Simms. “In fact, it is the most boring show on television.”<br> http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/10/14/tvtonight/main2120672.shtml
“I don’t know what the future holds for Donald Trump’s Apprentice, but I think this could be a game changer for reality TV,” says Richard Zoglin, author of “Television: The First Fifty Years”. “If history is any guide, such shows can grow stale fast — or they can keep their viewers interested by mixing things up a bit.”<br> http://www.oregonlive.com/living/oregonian/index.ssf?/base/living/1117363587269155.xml&coll=7
“The Apprentice was no “Survivor,” but then I suppose Trump was no Jeff Probst or Mark Burnett,” says Theo Borghi, an associate professor of media studies at the University of Pittsburgh.<br> http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/07726/854674.stm
