Jews On The Apprentice
Word is that two people with frum backgrounds are on the new season of The Apprentice. As Steven Weiss and others have written, one is a YU graduate, the other went to HAFTR.
It would be interesting to see whether they are observing kashrus and shabbos while on the show. Donald Trump has had frum employees, so he would surely be accommodating, but the other contestants might feel and act differently. Those of us who are frum and have worked in largely non-Jewish work environments are well aware that it's usually co-workers rather than the employer itself who cause the most complications and challenges.
Finally, let's hope that the conduct of these guys will portray Judaism in a positive light and not be a chilul hashem; alas, most reality show contestants don't come across all that well.
