Donald Trump's daughter will appear in 'Hydra Executives', GCC version of Apprentice.
The glamorous daughter of US property tycoon Donald Trump is to make a cameo appearance on Hydra Properties’ new reality TV show – the GCC version of the The Apprentice.
The Abu Dhabi-based company said on Tuesday that Ivanka and brother Donald Trump Jr are to appear on ‘Hydra Executives’, in which 16 contestants from the UK and US are pitted against each other in a bid to win a $1 million real estate business grant.
Hydra CEO Sulaiman Al Fahim will take the role of Donald Trump in the series, which is set to air in September.
“We... expect the appearance of Donald and Ivanka in Hydra Executives to be an inspiration for the contenders to motivate them in their pursuit for success at the show," Ziad Batal, the show’s executive producer, said in a statement.
The announcement follows talks between Al Fahim and Trump in Abu Dhabi on working together on projects in the UAE capital.
Al Fahim also met with Trump Jr, Ivanka and Erik Trump - all of whom are vice presidents within Trump Organisation.
"It is quite a thrill to be here in Abu Dhabi and see all the developments in full swing. We are witnessing outstanding progress that is taking on a full speed like no other in the world, and entering the active real estate scenario in this emirate is definitely something that we are looking into," Ivanka said.
