The first season aired during winter and spring of 2004. The Apprentice is produced by Mark Burnett and real estate magnate Donald Trump, who hosted the show. The premise of the show is to conduct a job talent search for a person to head one of Trump's companies. The position starts with an introductory one-year contract with a starting yearly salary at six figures ($250,000 USD to be exact, roughly about $4807.70 USD per week assuming a 52-week work-year). The show led Trump to become known for his fateful catch phrase, "You're Fired!", coined by Texas architecture student Scott Stewart. The contestants live communally in a suite at Trump Tower in New York City and the boardroom showdown is with Trump and two of his associates (usually Carolyn Kepcher, Former Chief Operating Officer and General Manager for the Trump National Golf Club, and George H. Ross, Executive Vice President and Senior Counsel, The Trump Organization). Season 6 saw the show move to Los Angeles. On May 14, 2007 NBC announced the show was not on its fall 2007 schedule, but that a decision to cancel or renew it had not yet been made. On May 19, 2007, Trump announced that he was "moving on from 'The Apprentice'", effectively ending the series. However, on May 22, NBC responded by saying Trump still has a year left on his contract. It was finally officially announced on July 16, 2007 that NBC renewed the show for mid-season as a special Celebrity Edition.

The final two were Denis and Vivianne. On the last task both of them had to organize two charity auctions. Vivianne got 45% more money than Denis. Another point that was brought up on the board room was that when asked by Roberto Justus himself to change the day of the auction, while Vivianne accept the idea right away, Denis did not.


By the end of the show, Justus decided Vivianne should be The Apprentice, and just like the U.S. version, when he told her he hired her the whole stage opened showing a live audience and all the others candidate's as well as Vivianne's family run to hug her and gave her a tee shirt with the saying "I'm hired".


Justus then told Vivianne she wouldn't leave in a taxi like the ones who lost the show, but she would leave driving her new Mercedes-Benz A-Class. He also showed her in which of his enterprises she would work on her new 250,000 Reais (about US$ 100,000 at that time) yearly job. 2004 Mercedes-Benz W169 A200 The Mercedes-Benz A-Class (popularly known in the U.S. as the Baby Benz) is a small family car produced by the German automaker Mercedes-Benz. ...
