Donald J. Trump Presents The Ultimate Merger (a.k.a Omarosa's Ultimate Merger and The Ultimate Merger) was a short-lived reality dating show.

Premise[]

The format is reminiscent of two previous reality series: The Bachelor and The Apprentice where twelve men selected by billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump compete for the affections of Omarosa. Omarosa receives assistance in the selection process from her spiritual advisor Dr. Jamal Harrison Bryant (pastor of the empowerment temple A.M.E church in Baltimore, Maryland). Other personalities include comedians George Wallace and Loni Love, TV Chef G. Garvin, author Karrine Steffans, and Apprentice alumni Katrina Campins, Troy McClaine and Nick Warnock.

While on the show, the contestants live together in a huge suite at the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. In each episode, they are directed to participate in a mental or physical challenge designed to gauge each man's potential compatibility with Omarosa. The winner(s) of each challenge selected attend a date with her later that evening. Subsequently, the contestants must gather in the "Mediation Room", where Omarosa (assisted by Dr. Bryant and other celebrity guest) question several of the contestant regarding their actions and attitudes while on the show. One or more contestants is then selected for elimination by Omarosa, and that man must immediately leave Trump International and the show.

Trivia[]

  • This process resulted in one man, R&B singer Ray Lavender, remaining as the potential beau for Omarosa. However, because Lavender was legally separated at the time (and thus technically still married) he was eliminated as well and Omarosa was left with no one.
  • Soon after the first season finale, Omarosa publicly revealed that she was in a new relationship with Academy Award-nominated actor Michael Clarke Duncan (who later died on September 3, 2012 due to suffering from a heart attack).
