Property tycoon Donald Trump is thrilled his new reality TV show is a big
hit, but he hates having to fire hopeful moguls.
More than 20 million Americans tuned in to watch the debut of THE
Apprentice last week (ends09JAN04), and watched Trump fire the first of 16
people hoping to land a job with him.
The businessman admits that although he looked comfortable sacking his
first victim, he hates having to let people go.
He says, "I don't like firing people. Sadly over the years I've fired so
many people, I didn't need the practice. I've never been fired."
More than 215,000 hopefuls signed up for the TV hit - a new reality show
record - and Trump admires every one of them.
He adds, "I don't think this would be for me."
