One's 'The Ultimate Merger' starring Omarosa to premiere June 17th (June
3, 2010) Real estate and entertainment mogul Donald Trump has partnered
with TV One on a groundbreaking new reality series, Donald J. Trump
Presents The Ultimate Merger, in which Omarosa, The Apprentice cast
member Trump helped make into a reality TV star, sets out in search of
the perfect husband. Will she marry for love or for money? And can a
bevy of bachelors tame this diva? Viewers will watch it play out weekly
in one-hour episodes, which premieres on TV One Thursday, June 17 in a
90-minute special at 9 PM/ET, repeating at midnight.
"Omarosa was a great personality on the "Apprentice" that was watched by
over 40 million people as it became the #1 show on TV. Omarosa is smart,
witty, and difficult, but all of these qualities will make for some very
interesting entertainment," says Executive Producer Donald J. Trump.
On the show, Omarosa will put a cadre of 12 hot, successful bachelors
through a gauntlet of tests. These challenges are designed to play upon
their weaknesses, test their business acumen, measure their seductive
strengths, and draw out their true intentions. But these guys will fight
back, and Omarosa may just meet her match. But this is all a part of the
love dance, and viewers will get to see what happens when "sharks" mate.
Omarosa will be assisted in the challenges by a series of friends and
celebrities, ranging from comedians George Wallace and Loni Love to TV
One chef G. Garvin to former Video Vixen and author Karrine Steffans,
plus several of Omarosa's former "Apprentice" co-stars, including
Katrina Campins, Nick Warnock, and Troy McClaine. Pastor Jamal Bryant
serves as Omarosa's spiritual adviser and is on hand to provide guidance
and support to the bachelors when needed. And the bachelors will get to
meet Mamarosa, Omarosa's mother.
"I am happy to be working with Donald Trump again on this exciting
project," said Omarosa. "Love is serious business, and I approached this
challenge with the same determination with which I do everything in my
life, which is why I brought in a team of experts and good friends to
help me put these bachelors to the test. And while it has been a much
more emotional and dramatic experience than I ever expected, I look
forward to making the Ultimate Merger."
"TV One is all about bringing our viewers an entertaining and compelling
take on universal aspects of the black experience -- and there is no
doubt that creating successful, loving relationships is an important
element of that experience. There is also no question that Donald J.
Trump Presents The Ultimate Merger will be unpredictable, full of drama,
and a guilty pleasure to watch," says TV One Senior Vice President of
Original Programming Toni Judkins.
Donald Trump and Trump Productions President Andy Litinsky created the
eight- episode reality series that is produced by Trump Productions LLC
and Juma Entertainment. The Executive Producers from Juma Entertainment
are Bob Horowitz and Lewis Fenton. The show was filmed on location at
the Trump International Hotel and Tower: Las Vegas.
The executives in charge of production for TV One are Craig Henry and
