Olympic medalist Angela Ruggerio to compete on 'The Apprentice 6'
UPI News Service, 05/31/2006
The upcoming Los Angeles-based "Apprentice" sixth season will welcome Olympic gold medalist, Angela Ruggerio, to its pool of contestants.
Selected to the show through online voting at NBCOlympics.com, Ruggerio will represent the first instance of stunt-casting for the show. The season itself will also be the first to be set in Los Angeles rather than New York.
A member of three Olympic women's U.S. ice hockey teams, Ruggerio was chosen over 11 other Olympic athletes to appear on the show. No stranger to pressure, she will now contend with her opponents on the highly competitive show.
