As readers will recall, last fall rumors first surfaced regarding the possible involvement of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter attraction in an upcoming episode of the NBC reality game show Celebrity Apprentice. Today, those rumors have proven to be true, for AceShowbiz.com posted an extended preview of the episode featuring a sneak peek at their Wizarding World related challenge. In this episode, which is slated to air on NBC April 4th, contestants are given the task "to create a three-dimensional display for the Universal Orlando attraction." The Wizarding World of Harry Potter section of the preview can be viewed here starting at the 3:35 mark. Additionally, the official website has an additional preview of the episode, which can be seen via this link.
This episode of "The Celebrity Apprentice" will air in the States Sunday, April 4 at 9pm EST.
hahahahah i cant belive it finally on!!! back in september i entered a contest to prove that i was the biggest harry potter fan. not knowing the reward i posted a video and forgot about it. a couple weeks later i got a phone call asking me to come to new york to participate in the filming of a harry potter themed celebrity apprentice show. i signed all these confidentiality agreements not to tell any websites or anybody really at all, but that contract expired since the news is officially out. thre were 4 other lucky fans who got to participate in the contest and our job on the show was to judge the celebrities on how appropriately they followed the assignment. it was crazy :D ill be happy to tell anybody more about the process if they want just owl me :)
This sounds interesting if nothing else, they don’t seem to appear to know much about the books. They will go for the most obvious witch/wizard clichés which will likely not have anything specific to do with HP other than the generic.
