Donald Trump won't be the only celebrity on the next edition of The Apprentice -- he'll be surrounded by them! To pump new life into the sagging reality series, the creatively coiffed real estate tycoon will be firing a yet-to-be-cast group of celebrities, bringing a bit of The Surreal Life to the boardroom. The Donald says he'd like his old nemesis Rosie O'Donnell to sign up, but her rep says, "It will not happen in this lifetime or beyond." The winner won't work for him... instead, they'll receive "a large sum of money" to donate to charity.

Compatible with: others who prefer one meat topping

If your date orders multiple meat toppings…Real meat lovers who pile on the pepperoni, sausage, and ham tend to be dramatic, seductive, sweep-you-off-your-feet extroverts who thrive as the center of attention.

If your date orders non-traditional toppings…People who prefer offbeat options like pineapple or extra onions tend to be aggressive, ambitious, and competitive. In other words: Don’t expect a mellow relationship.
