First Winner of NBC's 'The Apprentice' Gets His Own Show TheWrap
The winner of the first installment of Donald Trump's NBC reality show "The Apprentice" will resurface with his own show. TheWrap.com reports that reality regular Bill Rancic will host a cooking series on the Food Network.
Called “Kitchen Casino,” the show will ask contestants to participate in casino-style competitions based on roulette, poker and slot machines.
“In the first round, the competing chefs take a spin on the Kitchen Casino Slot Machine to reveal three categories -- cuisine, ingredient and theme -- which they must employ while making their dishes for the 30-minute round,” the story notes.
The second round will focus on the roulette wheel, with contestants working at stations that spin and chefs judging the dish that ends up in front of them, the story notes. The third round will focus on poker, with contestants dealt a card that asks them to incorporate an ingredient into their dish.
Rancic was hired by Trump at the conclusion of "The Apprentice 1" in 2004. Since then he has hosted the A&E reality show "We Mean Business" and appeared along with his wife, Giuliana Rancic, on the E! reality show "Giuliana and Bill."
