Shortly after Ian Ziering started slaying sharks on Syfy's mega-popular Sharknado series, the actor got a chance to do something he'd never done before – learn about the business world.

Appearing on The Celebrity Apprentice's seventh season, Ziering worked his way through a variety of sales, marketing, creative and branding tasks laid out each week by Donald Trump, who has since been named the Republican presidential nominee.
