The Apprentice

anyone here watches the apprentice on NBC?? I was watching it today and noticed that it's gotten worse. I've noticed some things that are very "professional". This dude (fat dude with glasses) kept getting cut-off by this girl so he confronted her saying that she should stop. Then she made a big deal out of it and convinced the whole team to send him home. WTF was that??? It's ridiculous!! She wasnt even good looking at all and he acted like she's all that. And the team wasted soo much time solving that problem instead of trying to work on the project.

Then there's this other dude, the project manager, was on the phone with one of his team members and they basically told him what to do. He's the manager, he should be in command, not freaking taking orders. Then after his team member hung up, HE WAS STILL ON THE PHONE GOING "Hello??...Hello??...Hello??". OMFG cant he tell that the call has ended?? How did they even get on the show???


last thing, doesnt have to do with apprentice :anyone find the clock on that show 24 annoying??? Maybe I have PMS but that clock drives me nuts. It keeps going "ka chung ka chung ka chung" throughout the whole show. And tonight is the 2 hour finale ( I think).

Haha I know this is wack but I was just wondering if anyone else feels this way.

Hahaha yeah she does suck. And the team leader was full of it too.When he fired those 2, I was like "thank you!!!" It's ridiculous you know? How did they even make it that far in life with that kind of attitude??? thEY all ganged up on him cus he's the outcast. Oh man I was so thrilled when the other guy (Trump's advisor), said "that is lame!" At least the advisors are sane. All is well that ends well!!!

This made me laugh.

I watched it last night and that biatch had to go. Brent was annoying, but I didn't see the project manager telling him to stop his little dance and stupidity. Also, trump was trying to make a point that the bathrobes were a dumb idea. They were, but it is the job of the PM to make final decisions, not the little people. I think Trump did the right thing (although, I would have fired Brent aswell).

I agreed. It has gotten worse every season. The 1st season and 2nd season was good. Everyone was very professional and smart. These new people doesn't seem to have much of what it takes...though it's only the 2nd episode for this season.

What's funny when I watch this show is that everyone has a very credible and good resume but when all these people get together, it shows their weaknesses and the real personalities. No star is shining yet....and I agreed that the 2 got fired last nite was good.

Some of these tasks required them to act crazy and stupid but in the end...it was the results and the WIN that counted.

OMFG I cant stand it anymore. People need to grow the fuck up and focus on their jobs. The project manager is making Brent responsible for clothes to wear when they meet the executive. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME??? FUCKK!!!! If NBC is trying the "emotion tactic", it's WORKING!! I hate when others discriminate!

And the dude on the other banner doesnt even look like a father!!! Oh man I can totally OWN every single one of them on that show.

Synergy's commercial was great! Gold rush's commercial was a little dull. I didnt get the impression of a great cruise line with Gold Rush.

as for 24- I switched back and forth between the 2 chanels so I didnt even hear the clock ticking. Thank heaven!! Great show though.

Apprentice - Pretty Good Episode. I'm starting to like Lenny even though he takes so much shit. Trump should have fired that mensa idiot.

24 - Fan-fucking-tastic. And, next week looks so good!

I agreed. Bryce stood by his integrity which was great. I didn't like how they handle the situation in the boardroom. Usually when the person that doesn't contribute much on a task gets fired and yet they defend Lenny for unable to contribute anything on this task. They totally turned their opinions around which pissed me off.

Bryce shouldn't been fired, Lenny should have been though. Not many strong players left to be the apprentice.

that fat ass guy got on my nerves, I'm glad he's gone. When they kept showing him eating food and that huge hamburger, I almost lost my dinner.

Donald Trump is an idiot. That was awesome how Bryce stood up to him and didn't get intimidated. It seems as though anytime someone challenges Donald Trump or show strength, they get fired..it's an ego thing on Trump's end. That's part of the reason a lot of ppl. stopped watching..
