Apprentice 2 Cast - Photo: EOnlineKevin Allen, a University of Chicago law student, has been chosen for the second season of The Apprentice, along with 17 others. We're hoping that Chicago will sweep the show and that Kev will be the next Bill Rancic... even though it doesn't seem like Bill is really actually doing much on Trump Tower.

Kevin is 29, is originally from Maryland, and went to Wharton School - Trump's alma mater (Trump kiss ass points, for sure!). When his little brother was diagnosed with leukemia, Kevin gave up his pursuit of a professional football Kevin Allen - Photo: RealityTVWorld.comcareer to give some bone marrow. Later he got an MBA at Emory University and started a software company. He's currently working on his law degree at U of C.

Bios and photos of the rest of the contestants are here. None of them are really that hot.. except maybe the last guy - the "24-year-old marketing director from San Francisco" ..but he also looks flaming gay.. so Chicagoist girls are SOL.

Chicagoist was a big fan, huge fan of The Apprentice in the first season.. but is feeling like the show, and Trump himself, has been so over exposed that it's kind of played out. Trump has written a new book, launched a magazine, created a board game and filed trademark for "Trump University", for chrissakes. Can you imagine the school where you go to learn how to have a bad combover!?

On Sept. 9 we'll be tuning in to see if we can tolerate Trump saying "Your Fired!" even one more time.
