TITO ORTIZ - INTERVIEW
Let's put the million-dollar question out there first. You've achieved fame and success in your life. Why put yourself through the often-brutal Apprentice process?
I wanted to let the average fan know I'm more than just a fighter. I'm also a businessman.
What do you admire most about Donald Trump? Do you see a correlation between him and you in the sense that you are both famous AND business people?
It's obvious how intelligent he is but I know that's not enough to be a winner. You have to work hard and execute. To overcome the obstacles he had in the 90's showed me he has the true characteristics of a of a champion. As they say, "game recognizes game."
"Success" can mean different things to different people; what does it mean to you?
Success will always take on different meanings with different people. Even within my own mind, the definition seems to change as I evolve. The one constant that has remained over the years is this: as I continue to provide for my loving family I know I'm succeeding.
Why should you be Donald Trump's celebrity Apprentice?
To bring as much attention to my charity "St. Jude Children's Research Hospital" as possible. Visit them at www.stjude.org.

You guys are gonna have to wait until May when my book "This Is Gonna Hurt" comes out.
If you could be the star of any movie ever made, which star and which movie would it be and why?
Arnold Schwarzenegger as The Terminator; I think it's obvious.
