Contestants fighting for a high-paid job with property tycoon Donald Trump on a new TV reality show will face a $5 million (GBP2.9 million) fine if they talk about the details of the programme.

The show, The Apprentice, was a big hit when it aired last week (ends09JAN04), with more than 20 million viewers tuning in to see who would be the first to get fired by Trump.

Contestants on the show - all vying for a $125,000 (GBP73,530)-a-year salary - have been forbidden to talk about their experience on the show for fear of revealing Trump's secret business methods.
