The Apprentice is back!!! - Page 6

post #101 of 111
One thing I thought about the choices were that they were geared to appeal to each of them. The real estate one in Florida for Kendra, and the Miss Universe one for Tana, who's mainly done clothing selling as her experience leading up to this. It just seems that they were trying to give each of them something that would appeal to them, and what they had experience in.

Liam.

Trump ticked me off with all his comments about crying. I'd love to inject him full of estrogen and see how he handles himself.

Kendra had an awesome rebuttal though (football players)! He couldn't come back with anything after that.

Yeah, it was pretty anticlimatic. I felt a little bad for Tana, b/c it was obvious that no one had too much positive to say about her; it took a lot of courage I think to go on the show knowing you probably lost. Woo hoo, she thought of a circle? Big deal!

I am happy Kendra won, especially since it will drive Craig crazy. He really irked me!

I agree with this! When I said that to my hubby he thought I was being overly sensitive or something.

YES the job choices did make me BLINK too !
I initially thought.....good grief he gave them sterotypical job.....beauty consultant and home decorator. No matter if they are multimillion dollar businesses thats what they are!! Sure maybe a female perspective is better in those jobs, but I doubt if they would have been offered to a guy.
And then another thought was that if these choices were made early on....they had to be ready if one of the street smarts won. In that case, as they have said before, they did not want a"non-degreed" person dealing with business leaders around the world, because they wouldn't be dealing in the "same business lanquage".
Lastly, after a little more thought, these two jobs were more like "major tasks" to be completed versus "jobs". Whole series was about tasks and image it seemed versus raising money.
Still a little irked, but the show took a different twist when the two groups were street vs college.

I thought that was the most lackadaisical finale of any program that I have ever seen. BORING!!!
I had been pulling for Tana throughout the show but starting with the t-shirt task - she just did a 180!

Maybe I'm just getting burned out of these shows?

Tana was so embarrassing at the finale...like she really thought her teammates wouldnt come back and rat her out for being lame...hasnt she ever watched this show before? C'mon!

ITA about the job choices...Trump is really sexist.

I dont think I will watch this show next go around.

I just got around to watching a tape of the finale. What a poor episode. Blech. It didn't help that I didn't like either of the final contestants.

One thing that struck me was the impression that Trump decided way back when who he wanted to win, and geared things accordingly (other than the incredibly obvious it's-going-to-be-a-woman business). I mean, the bit about "each had the 3 hardest-to-work-with members of their original team" -- c'mon, the street-smarts group was, as a group, harder to work with than the book smarts (many of whom still pal around together, sort of like they're all alums of some fraternity now). If Trump wanted to even things up he should've picked some of the milder street smarts group.


I thought the "grand prize" of a job renovating the estate was dorky. But, dh pointed out that considering Kendra put her life on hold for several weeks for the show, and is now having to do this job for a year with no guarantee of future emplyment in the Trump organization, it's nice that at least it's in her hometown.

Yep and if Kendra is smart she will work her way into that Palm Beach Real estate markets by getting good contacts, network, etc. She can also have the reputation of renovating Trumps big ole house etc.
She needs to make it work for her! And she could make KILLER real estate money. Just like Trump has done!

She did say real estate was her love. So she probably had some ideas for her future.
Bad idea if she plans on dragging volitile Chris along.

Tana did start to go off the deep end at the end. I think it all just got to her and she lost the ability to maintain the image she wanted. I don't think she would have done too well it such a restrictive environment though, with her creativity I think she would have needed more freedom to go at it .... with no "corporate atmosphere" to adhere to. That way she can call people "stooges" if she wanted and not get sued!!!

Ohthethinks - Kendra is already quite successful down here in the real estate market! In fact 2 weeks ago there was a nice article about her in the local paper. this will be great for her, I think. I am sure she will do so much more than "just" the mansion.
