The limousine artwork was hand picked by Giuliana from artist Adam McEwen. “When I began collecting, it was suggested to me that I start with artists from my generation,” the 41-year-old said. “In my youth, the limousine represented wealth and status.

The first Apprentice winner, Bill explained why they moved back to Chicago. “This city has everything to offer, including a community of people with strong Midwestern values. We knew the family who lived here before, and they put a great vibe in this house that we hope to continue. We’ve always had one foot here, and now we have two. Finally, we’re home.”
