Hundreds Line Up to Star in 'Apprentice'
Mon Mar 15, 8:26 AM ET


BURBANK, Calif. - The line to audition for the second season of the hit reality show "The Apprentice" stretched the length of four football fields outside NBC's Burbank studios as more than 1,000 people sought a spot on the program featuring billionaire Donald Trump.

Trump was not present Saturday because "Apprentice" producers didn't want to overshadow his appearance at Thursday's auditions in New York. More than a dozen casting calls will take place in cities including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Miami and San Francisco.

Kevan Moezzi of Seal Beach showed up 19 hours early to earn wristband No. 3, meaning he was third in line to be interviewed. He and two others slept outside the studios to be first in line.

"If I get this show, it will open up so many opportunities," Moezzi said. "I gotta get in there and show them what it takes."

Rob LaPlant, the show's casting producer, said he is looking for "real people" to join the show.

"The worst thing someone can do here is not talk," he said. "We throw out a topic and see how they react."
