What I want to know if why it took *two* of them to deliver it. If she was really worried about making sure they had a "good name" she should have just sent one of the models with the pizzas but given them some money off, like 50% off. That would have been like $20 and she could have canvases more of the business around where they actually were for sales. They could have make up that $20 in no time at all.

If I was that guy on the work site I would have much rather had a model delivering me 50% off pizza, then some lady apologizing for it being late and still charging me full price.

Or she should have at least sent extra pizzas to sell on the subway!

So, what did you think about last night? I can't believe Chris squeaked by again! I would rather have the stripey-haired woman than him - she seemed down-to-earth and at least she works a lot every time, even though it may not go well. She's definitely not a "loser" - I thought that was a mean comment (wait, I'm expecting politeness from reality TV?!) - and definitely not worse than Chris. I'm still rooting for Tana, though.

Incidentally, it's interesting how many strong women executives Trump pulls out on the show. I wonder if that's representative of his organization or if those are the token women?

I can't believe that they didn't fire Chris either. From what I can tell all he did was buy some stuff at Best Buy and then lose the credit card, which caused to mostly miss the whole day of the presentation. Maybe if Angie didn't have to do everything it would have gone better. What did Alex do exactly? Besides "manage" the group. Since the Models didn't show up until like 10 minutes before they had to be at the store, and had to get dressed and get to the presentation. You can't really fault Angie too much, maybe she could have been more prepared, but really how much time did she actually get to write all her pitch, make sure all the outfits were on people, make sure no one forgot anything, and she seemed to be the only one that was concerned about getting there on time.

The other thing I'm not buying at all, is somehow, after his whole life of being addicted to tobacco, and also having rage issues, which he admitted to having for his whole life. Chris somehow can just turn it all off, and not need to chew or yell anymore? I can't seem to buy that, it just seems that he's going to blow at any moment and really lay into someone. I just don't see that in this kind of high pressure, high stress job interview that lasts days he can somehow do some great introspection and change his whole personality..

Should be intersting next week.

I was so looking forward to seeing Chris fired finally, and then it was bye bye Angie? I liked her, even though she "choked" as Trump so eloquently put it. How does he squeek by? I don't get it? It must just be for ratings, I swear. Kinda like I was convinced on the first Apprentice that the producers paid off Omarosa to thwart her competitors and undermine tasks because we all loved to hate Omarosa, KWIM?

I mean he lost the credit card for Pete's sakes!

I'm still rooting for Tana too. But I didn't want to see Angie go.

The producers planted Chris there on purpose.

I get all worked up and hate him and then I feel all dirty and used because I know the show manipulated me. Not only do they edit shots to make it look like someone's rolling their eyes at a particular moment when it might not really have happened like that, but I really do think they choose freaks like Chris on purpose. I bet if you look close he's probably got a minor in drama...

I don't usually get all worked up by The Apprentice, but I agree...Angie was shafted. Did you see her "to do" list? What did the guys do, anyway? It's so typical...the woman works her tushie off doing a million different jobs and gets talked down for being "frazzled" while the men waltz in without a care in the world and are called "professional." Of course Angie was wiped out! And did you catch that comment Chris made at Best Buy about breaking someone's kneecaps if they didn't find his card....nice way to work on that temper. Given their presentation (Beach Tech....what if you don't live near a beach??), I'm not sure their team would have won, but poor Angie didn't have a prayer with those guys behind her. Can't believe the Donald and his people didn't see past the surface. I always wonder how much info. they get before the board room scene is shot.

I sooooo didn't want to get sucked in this year... but well, i did... :LOL

I was glad to see Angie go. She annoys me. The bad temper guy seems like a not so hot choice either...

If Tana does not win this I will scream. She rocks. I wanted it to be between Angie and Tana. I do not want to see Chris or Alex in the final two.
post #51 of 111
I want Kwami to win...oh wait, wrong season. Too bad they can't bring him back because he was better than all of these people.

I want Tana to win, too.

I think DT likes Chris because DT probably has a similar personality once the cameras aren't rolling. Chris is the type that doesn't try to make friends, the type that people will listen to just to avoid a confrontation. DT probably likes him on some level because I think he would have been gone by now if he didn't.

I agree and I think he never really liked Angie. Caroline was rooting for her big time and he just disregarded what she said.
post #53 of 111
Chris is a loose cannon and DT wouldn't have made it to where he is now if he was as emotionally undisciplined and volitile as Chris is.

Here I am taking it all seriously again! Chris is a plant! Chris is a plant!
post #54 of 111
I do not mean that DT and Chris are exactly alike. Chris is obviously someone w/ anger issues. But remember when DT asks Chris if it was true that he had used the "f" word or something, and DT said that he talks like that, too.

I just think that DT is very tough, too when the cameras aren't rolling. I think that he might like that "toughness" or "hardness" that Chris has in some weird way because many business people are like that. I can't exactly put my thoughts into words right now.

This is funny....but perhaps a wee bit too predictible:

Good point!! I didn't understand how Alex was so great this time either.

Thread Starter 
Chris HAD to know this was coming....good thing he handled it like such a man I had to laugh a little.

I thought Kendra's book was good but she acted like she wanted to do it all by herself. She wasnt taking anyone elses advice or ideas seriously. Why would they want to sit up all night with her if she wasnt even going to let them do anything? I dont think much of her...

And their prize? How lame was that! Bring on the shopping trips!

and once again I missed it. ugh.
post #59 of 111
Didn't the Donald love Chris like a son? I was crying right along with Chris, and I never did care for him.

I don't like Kendra and think she will go home soon because she isn't that great (management wise), but I was really disappointed with Tana for going to bed. I would never go to bed on a task like that. Not if it was important to me.

I agree. I have always thought the Donald has some kind of something for him.
