"Apprentice" auditions in Honolulu April 1

Advertiser Staff

Hawai'i contestants will have a shot at joining Donald Trump on "The Apprentice" when Honolulu auditions are held April 1 at the Hawai'i Prince Hotel in Waikiki.

If you're game, show up from 9 a.m. to acquire a wristband. Interviews with casting crews will begin at 10 a.m.

Candidates should complete an online application, downloadable at at www.nbc.com, and bring the form to the open call.

According to an audition advisory, prospects should be able to take risks, think creatively to be a leader, spring back after making mistakes and have the tenacity to succeed in a cutthroat environment while remaining focused and feisty. It's also helpful to have the ability to swim against the tide.

Trump said in a statement, "People who want to challenge themselves in the ultimate business competition should definitely come apply."

Filming begins this summer.

Auditions will continue through April 8, with stops in Chicago, Hartford, San Diego, Washington D.C., Las Vegas and Phoenix. Other cities on the current search include Seattle, San Antonio, Tampa, Memphis, Denver, and Sacramento.
