In my heart, I'm actually Canadian....
Anyone else out there watching? I noticed during Apprentice 1 there wasn't a thread for it like there was with Survivor and some other shows, but maybe it was just because no-one started one? Guess I'll find out... :D
I like Pamela, but man, she's got a mouth on her and I think it's going to end up getting her fired. Actually, I thought she was rather amusing, but there's a fine line sometimes between "assertive" and "defensive and snippy" and as someone who often suffers from the latter syndrome, I know how far that won't get you in a setting like this..... :D :\ However, it takes some serious nerve to try and bite Carolyn's head off!
I cannot BELIEVE that once again the black woman is going to turn out to be The Crazy One. I find it impossible to believe that out of all the people who tried out for this show, they could not find ONE qualified black woman who actually has her neurons firing correctly. I realize this sort of thing makes for good "reality TV", HOWEVER, the apparent penchant for choosing only nutty black women for this show is rather offensive.
I think the idea of letting the winning project manager get an exemption from firing the following week if he/she is in the boardroom is a TERRIBLE idea. What if he/she REALLY REALLY REALLY messes up BADLY? Plus I think it defeats the entire purpose of everyone having to be on their toes all the time if you throw in something like this.
There is no way, if I walked into Donald Trump's personal suite, I mean, NO WAY, that I would physically be able to restrain myself from saying "Oh, my GOD!! TACK-A-RAMA!!!"
So far the only person on my "gotta go" list is Raj. What is WITH that wardrobe? And the CANE??? "Setting yourself apart" and "being an original" is all very well and good, but does he honestly think he can show up for work for Trump every day dressed like something out of the Great Gatsby? And having a pretentious wardrobe be a reflection of a pretentious personality doesn't add much either.
I love the Apprentice. I've been looking forward to it all summer. The only thing that tops it is Amazing Race, IMO.
Pamela had better learn some discretion. She could've easily insulted someone besides Carolyn in the observation room. She didn't know if any of those kids were children of people in the room and felt free to make comments about their appearances. Very unprofessional. I also felt that she didn't have much of a game plan.
I think Pam and Bradford got a lot of points for volunteering to be project managers. It's a lot tougher to be 1st in the game because you don't know people well enough to understand how to utilize their strengths and weaknesses.
Don't remember the name of the guy that was fired. However, he was acting as though this was Survivor where you want to be part of the 'team' and fly under the radar. This is a job interview - you gotta put yourself out there in a good way. Not surprised he was booted.
As for Raj, you have to admit that he stands out. His clothing style doesn't particularly bother me, but I feel as though he's and "I told you so" kinda guy. He objected to Mosaic, but couldn't sell a different idea. Better to keep your mouth shut about a petty disagreement.
I do admit that I don't think Mosaic is a good name for a 'company'. I don't particularly care for Apex either. Protege and Versacorp were a little more creative IMO.
I don't think we have another Omarosa on our hands this time. This woman seems to be another Tammy instead.
It seems like a lot of people are playing more quiet this time. I definitely did not learn much about most of the team members. I think there's 2 more people this time and the editing seems different. Hopefully, we'll see the candidates get better.
I forgot that this was starting already. I'll have to remember to change the channel and watch it.
I actually wrote to the tv station about their choice of minority women for the first season. Like JohnnyCoop said, there has got to be better representation out there then the women they are choosing. My current supervisor would be a 100% improvement over the 1st season representatives. I would hope that the network is not deliberately editing stereotypes in but you never know. :\
