A former contestant on Donald Trump’s reality show “The Apprentice” on Friday became the 11th woman to accuse the Republican nominee of sexual assault or misconduct, alleging that in 2007, Trump brought her to a hotel bungalow and forced himself on her.
Speaking at a press conference in Los Angeles, Summer Zervos described an encounter with Trump in a Beverly Hills hotel room where, she said, Trump kissed and groped her. Nearly a dozen women have come forward in recent days with similar stories of unwanted sexual advances from Trump, who has denied all accusations.
Zervos said she reached out to Trump some time after appearing on the NBC show in hopes of getting work at Trump’s real estate company. (Zervos appeared on the fifth season of “The Apprentice,” which aired in 2006.) She lived in L.A., but met with Trump during a trip to New York and asked about a job.
