The Apprentice, Season One

Rancic was one of the job applicants in The Apprentice 1 during the spring of 2004, as one of sixteen contestants. Rancic was ultimately hired at the conclusion of the fourteen-week job interview after Donald Trump fired Kwame Jackson for not re-firing Omarosa for her false testimony throughout the final task.

As a result of being the first reality TV star to be hired on national television, Rancic had three minutes to decide which project to manage while in front of an audience of nearly 60 million viewers. Rancic elected to take charge of the construction of the Trump Tower Chicago in his native Chicago, Illinois, on the site of the demolished Chicago Sun-Times building. The other option he had was to oversee and manage a new Trump National Golf Course and resort in Los Angeles, California. The Trump National course was a potential site for season 6 when it is filmed in Los Angeles during 2006.

Most of Trump's advisors thought Bill was the one during the episode "Down to the Wire". In this episode he explained that things not being to his satisfaction is sometimes a blessing but also a curse.


For the final challenge, Rancic had a tough time on the Golf Course task at Briarcliff manor because most of his teammates thought he would lose. Rancic was so jittery and nervous unlike competitor Kwame Jackson who was laid back. But Rancic succeeded in his task and therefore was hired.


Career after The Apprentice

Bill Rancic said that after his one-year contract expired for being Donald Trump's Apprentice, he would leave the job and start his own company.[1] He instead has opted to remain part of the Trump Organization, and now fills in as a judge when George is away on business. This occurred very often during the fourth season. Although Rancic was a friendly, down to earth contestant, he adopted the difficult and critical demeanor of other members of the Trump Organization, often acting with a superior, but questionably deserved, air. If youre looking for the TV show, see The Apprentice. ...


One of his quotes as a Trump Organization Judge for The Apprentice candidates is: "That's the easy way out." Bill uses this quote to warn any candidate who makes a dumb business move that such moves could be fatal, as in the instance of Jennifer Crisafulli's poor decision making from The Apprentice 2.


Rancic reportedly exposed one of Gold Rush's fatal losing secrets during a boardroom session in Season 5 of The Apprentice when he chastised Bryce for being 25 minutes late for an important meeting with the Arby's executives, and Trump was surprised when Bill Rancic spilled the beans during the initial boardroom.
