** One of the guest [=CEOs=] from Season 5 of ''The Apprentice'' was Creator/DreamWorksAnimation founder and former Creator/{{Disney}} [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon studio]] [[UsefulNotes/NoteworthyDisneyStaff chief Jeffrey Katzenberg]] (Disney, of course, have their own [[WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck Donald]]), who is a good fried of producer Mark Burnett and worked with him on another NBC show, ''The Contender''. A decade later, Trump is running for president against Hillary Clinton, with Katzenberg, Burnett, and Disney boss Bob Iger being three of her biggest donors in an all-out war against Trump (Katzenberg's former boss, Michael Eisner, is no fonder of Trump at this point than they are; Iger had given a tongue-lashing to Bernie Sanders earlier that year for criticizing his business).

** Claude Littner, for his utterly uncompromising interviewing style, complete with numerous [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech the Reason You Suck Speeches]] that makes him a joy to watch in the interview weeks. He then went on to become an AscendedExtra following Nick's departure but still kept his amazingly abrasive style of interrogation.

* DeaderThanDisco: The non-celebrity editions were firmly established as this by Season 10, which got some of the worst viewing figures in the history of NBC, and a lot of critics lashing out at how tasteless it was to broadcast such a show during a recession.

Added DiffLines:

* OvershadowedByControversy: The show gets attention nowadays largely due to the fact that Donald Trump was the host of the show.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBase: Nothing inflames fan opinions quite so much as the cardboard skeleton mess from Series 10. On the one side, some feel that it was an idiotic bit of [[RulesLawyer rules lawyering]] from Felipe, and that he fully deserved the firing he got. Others feel that it was a brilliant move that showed Felipe as a potential winner, and that Lord Sugar's disqualifying the team and firing him was not only the worst decision he ever made on ''The Apprentice'', but possibly even the moment the show jumped the shark. An in-between viewpoint is that while Sugar was right to disqualify the skeleton on the grounds that it clearly wasn't what was being asked for, Felipe shouldn't have been fired, and that team leader Daniel should have taken the fall for not shutting the idea down immediately.

** Omarosa from the first regular and ''Celebrity Apprentice'' seasons. Barely tolerable bitch in the former, raging egotist (and terrible project manager) in the latter.
** Stacy R. from Season 2 did absolutely nothing but complain, yet somehow lasted to the halfway point of the season. Granted, virtually every woman in that season was a "Scrappy" in her own right.
