Bowie Hogg stepped out of a New York City hotel room last fall to begin what has been dubbed "the ultimate job interview." He would compete against 15 others to win a chance to work for New York real estate tycoon Donald J. Trump. But what Hogg found as he arrived on the set of what has become a prime-time TV hit surprised him: Many of the women he would compete against - intelligent, successful twenty- and thirty-somethings - were clad in mini-skirts and slinky dresses.
