The Apprentice is not about Donald Trump at all, Lord Alan Sugar is the boss. You may of meant The Apprentice USA but that, albeit a similar name, is a different show.

The original Apprentice, about Trump, started in 2003. The same producers created Lord Sugar's version in 2004 after the success of US version's first season.

Also: may *have*

I love the little snide remarks ("for some reason," "depressing") but that may be because I loathe reality TV. Well, except for that sexy carpenter.

This Old House should work for the sexy carpenter one. Someone probably thinks he's sexy.

You should accept "Pop Idol" for the first question. That was the original show, which also had Simon Cowell as a judge. "American Idol" is the American version. There are also versions in many other countries. Nothing about the question suggests it's exclusively asking for the American version.

I ve heard of most, got 6 and seen 0 (that is a complete episode, I might ve seen a few minutes here and there before changing the channel).

One thing I did see that wasnt one here was masterchef, (though also just snippets, since I allways came across it by chance but atleast didnt allways change the channel with that one.) Ow and great british bake-off, you could say I ve actually watched that one, because I saw consecutive episodes (still missed most of it often missed the beginning or entire episodes haha) I am not british btw. But often wathc the bbc. (Mainly because I want to get away from all the (reality) drama on other channels haha. It is one of the more peacefull channels, even more than kids channels)
