Here are Kwame Jackson's odds of winning ''The Apprentice''

OCCUPATION Investment manager

SMARTEST MOVE Dragging Omarosa into the boardroom after the gallery task, prompting her bizarre meltdown and, more importantly, her firing. (Thanks, Kwame!)

DUMBEST MOVE Picking that nightmare-inducing surrealist artist his second time as leader. The result: $869 in sales to the other team's $13,600.

WHY HE WILL WIN After slipping by unnoticed for weeks, he stepped up with a clever ''calculated risk'' defense of his team's abysmal failure in the art world.

WHY HE WON'T His ability to fly under the radar has helped him, as those who flipped out (that's you, Omarosa) got the boot. But laying low doesn't seem very Trumpian, and it won't win this game.

WHAT THE BOSSES SAY ''Kwame's strengths are certainly his education and his desire. [But] he's a little bit like Bill -- he's in the shadows,'' muses Burnett. Trump is all praise: ''Wonderful guy, wonderful skills.''

ODDS 6-1
