Apprentice 2 goes to Kelly Perdew

Dec 17, 2004 by Ian Evans

In a three-hour finale that had more filler than The Women of Apprentice 2’s Maxim photospread had airbrushing, 37-year-old West Point graduate Kelly Perdew was named Donald Trump’s new apprentice. Perdew beat out 30-year-old attorney Jennifer Massey, who defended herself to the bitter end in a grueling finale that had audience member after audience member telling Trump that he should pick her opponent.

Trump gave Perdew the option of overseeing a new Las Vegas hotel development or a massive New York complex. The former Airborne Ranger chose the Big Apple position, saying that he wanted to learn from Trump and New York was the city to do it in.
