'The Apprentice' insider beats online gambling website bookies

UPI News Service, 12/14/2004 

An online gaming site will honor its debt and pay $10,000 to a bettor who had inside information on the outcome of the "The Apprentice" program, said.

On last week's episode on NBC, viewers learned 37-year-old software exec Kelly Perdew and 30-year-old lawyer Jennifer Massey will be vying for the "Apprentice" title and a job with real-estate mogul Donald Trump.

But someone already knew that in September, when the Antigua-based site noticed an unusually high number of small bets being made on Perdew and Massey, each of whom had 10-1 odds.

"When we discovered the unusual betting on 'The Apprentice,' we knew that we were the victim of another insider betting scandal on a reality show," said Stuart Doyle, the site's wagering director in a statement.

The company says it's now assessing whether to continue offering odds on reality-show outcomes.
