'The Apprentice' alumni joining the '1 vs. 100' mob on January 14
By Christopher Rocchio, 12/29/2006
There will be some recognizable faces in "the mob" in an upcoming episode of NBC's 1 vs. 100.
Fomer The Apprentice winners Kelly Purdew (Season 2) and Sean Yazbeck (Season 5) and first season alumni Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, are all scheduled to appear in the mob on Sunday, January 14 episode of 1 vs. 100, which will air on NBC at 7PM ET/PT.
In the episode, Louisville, KY resident Shannon Franco will play for a top prize of $1 million by trying to outsmart the game's 100-person mob, which is also competing for a share of the prize. Other notable members of the mob will include original Grease cast members Jeff Conaway (Kenickie) and Susan Buckner (Patty Simcox).
NBC's placement of these familiar faces in the mob is not coincidental, as following 1 vs. 100 will be new episodes of Grease: You're the One That I Want at 8PM ET/PT and The Apprentice: Los Angeles at 9PM ET/PT. The series' premiere of Grease is Sunday, January 7 at 8PM ET/PT, which will be followed by the premiere of The Apprentice: Los Angeles -- NBC's new title for The Apprentice's sixth season -- at 9:30PM ET/PT.
