Burger Job Fries Apprentice Hopeful Todd
This season, the teams are split between those who went to college (with "book smarts") and those who didn't ("street smarts").
The street team, dubbed Net Worth, won the challenge, developing a new sandwich for Burger King. Consumers preferred their Western Angus Steak Burger with such ingredients as barbecue sauce, cheddar cheese and onion rings. The book-learned group, dubbed Magna, came up with steak burgers with three different kinds of cheese.
Once the game got going, Net Worth picked John, who claimed restaurant experience, as its project manager. Magna's Todd said he'd run a restaurant so he got the project-manager nod, which is how he got into the pickle.
Once all the shredded lettuce had settled, Magna sold 139 units for a total of $553.22. But Net Worth sold 182 of their burgers for a total of $596.96 – prompting Trump to say that although he's a firm believer in education, he may have to start reassessing his position.
The street-smart team was rewarded with dinner at the "21" Club – which has a pretty famous burger of its own. Meanwhile, Burger King will offer the Apprentice-created Western Angus Steak Burger starting Friday at about 7,800 of its outlets nationwide, The New York Times reports.
