Billionaire and TV reality star Donald Trump has partnered with TV One on a new reality series, “Donald J. Trump Presents The Ultimate Merger.” The new series will feature Omarosa, who became a reality TV star on Trump’s “The Apprentice,” as she searches for the perfect mate.
The series, typically a one-hour series, will premiere on TV One Thursday, June 17 in a special 90-minute episode at 9 pm, repeating at midnight.
Here’s the pitch for the show:
Voted America’s #1 reality TV villain by TV Guide, Omarosa has yet to meet her match …until now! After mixing it up with some of TV’s toughest, including supermodel Janice Dickinson, talk show host Wendy Williams, and the “Celebrity Apprentice” Piers Morgan just to name a few, reality TV diva Omarosa has yet to give an inch in the boardroom, or on the reality set. But now, it is time for this strong-willed and wily schemer to settle down and find a husband.
Will she marry for love or money? And can this bevy of bachelors tame this diva?
“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,” said 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.”
The bachelors range from foreign currency trader to lawyer to fashion designer to special events company owner to Christian rap artist to former NFL linebacker-turned-fitness coach to New Jack Swing recording star, songwriter and record producer Al B. Sure.
