The teams of contestants competed to complete specific assigments and one member of the losing team was fired after each defeat. Beginning with season 7, the show introduced its celebrity version, with Donald Trump bringing 16 celebrities to New York City. Dividing into teams, they compete in business tasks. Each week, the leader of the winning team takes home tens of thousands of dollars for their favorite charity while the losing team faces Trump in his boardroom. In the end, the last celebrity standing is crowned the Celebrity Apprentice and earns a $250,000 jackpot for their charity of choice.
