"The Apprentice" Winner Bill Rancic
In this video, winner of NBC's The Apprentice, Bill Rancic, speaks at a national training conference. He shares that 215,000 people applied for the show and only 50 people were selected as finalists. These finalists were flown out to Los Angeles and put through a series of tests, including IQ and psychological tests. Once Rancic was told that he had been chosen as a contestant for the show, he was told by the producer that he had to wrap up his current business in Chicago and tell others that he was relocating to Cuba to get into the tobacco business.
As the winner of the first season of NBC’s hit reality series The Apprentice, Bill Rancic has taken his successful career to the next level. An estimated 27.6 million viewers tuned in to see Donald Trump hire his newest employee, and Rancic has not looked back since.
Rancic grew up in the Chicago suburbs and in 1994 graduated cum laude from Loyola University. His business career began when he founded a boat wash and wax business in the Chicago area to pay his way through college. The son of educators, his abilities as an entrepreneur was always being helped by an aspiration to learn more about everything in which he was immersed. After the death of his father in 1999, Bill and his sisters established the Dr. Edward T. Rancic scholarship fund to aid students who are working toward a career in education but are in financial need.
