Property tycoon Donald Trump is elated with the success of his reality series THE APPRENTICE - because his pay packet is set to double for the show's second season.

Trump reportedly rakes in $50,000 (GBP27,700) an episode, and he's now expected to receive double that amount when the show returns to American TV screens in the autumn (04).

The show's current season will come to an end with a two-hour finale tonight (15APR04).
