With Donald Trump having now signed on to star in two more The Apprentice editions, NBC announced this week that in addition to the Apprentice 4 mail-in applications that it has already been accepting, the show is launching a 28 city nationwide casting call tour beginning this weekend.

The Apprentice casting call tour will begin Saturday, January 29 in Los Angeles, CA and end in Albuquerque, NM on Saturday, February 26. Wristbands will be distributed between 8AM to 11AM at all locations, with interviews beginning at 9AM.

According to NBC, prospective candidates "should be able to take risks, bounce back after failing, succeed in a cutthroat environment, go against the tide, remain focused, think creatively, and be a leader." Oh ya, and based on the first three seasons of the show, being young and at least fairly attractive also won't hurt.

All applicants must be at least 21 years of age and in excellent mental and physical health. Additionally, as is standard for reality shows due to FCC "equal time" broadcast regulations, applicants can not presently be a candidate for public office and must agree not to become one until six months after the initial broadcast of any episodes in which they might appear.

The Apprentice 4 finalist interviews are scheduled to be conducted in Los Angeles during March 2005, with filming scheduled to occur during an up to eight week period in Spring/Summer 2005. The Apprentice 5 will film in Fall 2005.

According to NBC, The Apprentice 4 will air in Fall 2005, with The Apprentice 5 following in Winter 2006.
