14) Donald Trump
His biographers suggest he is a real estate mogul, business entrepreneur and writer and television personality—all rolled into one particularly barbed, opinionated and forthright package. “The Donald” first came onto the entertainment scene through his television show, The Apprentice, where he rapidly became known for his acerbic tongue and his ability to reduce some very high profile contestants to tears. He is unapologetically egotistical and his catch phrase, “You’re fired!” helped to propel his television celebrity status to levels not reached before by a business man. His television show maintained its popularity for nearly 15 seasons, when Trump decided to pursue more politically oriented paths. It can’t be too surprising to discover that Trump has an academic background, gaining his Bachelor of Science degree in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania. He is quoted as saying “It doesn’t hurt to get more education”.
