Donald Trump is astounded at the number of high-powered people who have been begging him for tickets to the live season finale of his reality show THE APPRENTICE tonight (16DEC04).

The property tycoon's hit show, in which he searches for a new employee to work within his empire, will conclude with a three-hour episode tonight, when Trump will choose between finalists KELLY PERDEW and JENNIFER MASSEY.

And Trump admits he's astounded by the high interest.

He says, "We have The Apprentice tonight at Lincoln Center. Last year (03) we had it at the Saturday Night Live (studios).And now... we have this huge auditorium and it's so packed.

"Big people are calling, begging for tickets and they wanna be able to go to the Apprentice tonight. We are not really able to handle it. It's just been amazing."
