Billy Bush Tells ‘Apprentice’ Candidates: ‘Stop Gunning For My Job’

MIAMI (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Access Hollywood host Billy Bush doesn’t want the contestants on shows like The Apprentice to have too much access to his job.

Bush says he has a hard time with the contestants on The Apprentice because he feels their motives are “a little bit of false advertising.”

In his words, “They make it seem like they have a desire to work for Donald Trump or Martha Stewart but, in reality, they want my job – interviewing people on TV or the red carpet.”

To be fair, Bush says some contestants may want to work in the corporate world until the camera is on them but says it’s hard to take it seriously when the “women are rushing to pose in magazines and the guys are scrambling for book deals.”

Bush recently gave Apprentice producers a piece of his mind only to be told the reason that the apprentices want his job is because, “Your job is easy.”

Although Bush admits it’s a funny comment, he says it’s an “easy” joke and insists that if his job looks easy, it’s because he’s skilled enough to “make it look casual.”
