NEW YORK – They've pushed toys, ice cream and toothpaste. And now, the Mosaic team from NBC's "The Apprentice" (search) is selling wares on QVC. Again.
The second-season reality show contestants faced the home shopping channel's cameras for a men-versus-women challenge in Thursday's episode.
On Monday, the winning team members — project manager Chris Russo, Kelly Perdew, Kevin Allen, Wes Moss, Andy Litinsky, John Willenborg and Raj Bhakta — will visit QVC once again.
The appearance is unusual, considering most "Apprentice" contestants — like many reality TV show participants — are required to lay low until they're fired or win.
"We are very excited to have `The Apprentice' team back at QVC," Darlene Daggett, QVC's president of U.S. commerce, said in a statement Friday. "This is the first time that anyone other than the `firee' has made an appearance on behalf of the reality television hit and we are thrilled that it's happening live on QVC."
The contestants will be joined by QVC product pros, who won't be grilling the contestants for spoilers. Instead, they'll help them sell sandwich grills ("Look at that melted cheese," gushed Willenborg on Thursday's episode) and a water-activated cleaning block set, as well as copies of the first season of "The Apprentice" on DVD.
