Surya: Part 1 of The Apprentice

Keeping It Gully in the '007...

Every generation has a desi legend. For some it was Gandhi. For others Amitabh Bachchan. Sadly there really hasn't been one for a little while, so for the time being we'll have to resort to rooting for the mediocre on a season-by-season basis. This season's Great Desi Hope, Surya Yalamanchili, on "The Apprentice," a 24 year old Brand Manager from Cincinnati.

Surya was noteworthy for not really saying very much at all during the premiere and getting picked towards the end of the initial group division. In many ways it was a tearful tribute to all the Indian kids who have been picked last in their PE class for playing on sports teams. His big impact though has to be his Dynamic Fro & Soul Patch. We salute you Surya. Keep it real. Keep it brown, Keep it gully.

Surya's Quote of the Episode: "I've seen Wolfgang Puck on TV and apparently he knows a thing or two about cooking"
- Surya upon eating at Spago
