'Apprentice' contestant dishes about show, Trump's hair

Brandy Kuentzel, who lives in Lower Nob Hill and who graduated from UCLA and the University of Chicago Law School, is a contestant on NBC’s “The Apprentice.”

Why did you apply for “The Apprentice”? You know, to be honest, it was a little bit of a last-minute decision. It was one of those things I thought would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It’s very different than my normal life, but I thought I had to seize the opportunity.

Has it been hard? I would say the hardest challenge, in all honesty, was opening up to America. It really does take a lot of strength to go on television.

What was the hardest exercise? We had to sell petty-cab rides in New York. It was just one of those days. No one wanted one. It was really just sort of demoralizing to stand on a corner and sell them when no one wanted them.

How has it affected your personal life? I think, honestly, San Francisco isn’t really a city that is always tuning in to “The Apprentice.” It’s definitely different back home. In Alaska and Oregon, where my parents live, people seem to notice more.

Tell us about Donald Trump’s hair. People always want to know if Trump’s hair is real. It is. He … says things like, “You may not think it’s beautiful, but I do.”
