HONG KONG -- China may soon have its own version of the extremely capitalist reality TV show The Apprentice.

Donald Trump will be the executive producer of the Chinese show, which will be hosted by a Beijing property mogul.
The version in the communist country would closely follow the US original, in which contestants use their business savvy to compete against each other, with the ultimate winner getting a job with Mr Trump.

The South China Morning Post said details of the deal were under final negotiation.

It quoted Mr Trump as saying: "China is going to have its own version of The Apprentice. There have been 11 (unofficial) copies of The Apprentice, and every single one of them has failed."

The Chinese show will run in direct competition with Wise Man Takes All, another mainland show inspired by The Apprentice and backed by property mogul and Trump rival Vincent Lo Hong-sui.,5478,16348078%255E663,00.html
