The Apprentice 3 Weekly Performance Review, Episode 11: American IdiotsPage 2
View Printable version of this article
I donít see what Trump is seeing. Youíre a good soldier, a fine assistant, but you have no ideas and no management skill. Thereís a reason you do well in the background.
You were rushed going into the presentation, but apparently you and Chris had time to play with cameras and mannequins while Angie was working? I have to agree that you probably should have been fired this week. I mean, what exactly DID you do this task? I donít think it matters because you and Angie were both just episode filler. Youíre just here to fill out our contracted number of episodes.
Chris: Christine thinks that Trump is being extremely unprofessional by harping on you week after week. Why doesnít he just fire you already? The same reason he didnít fire Danny immediately, or Sam, or Raj, or Omarosa. It makes good television. At my work, everybody hates you. You donít get rid of a good villain like that quickly.
That said, Christine says that Chris has shown remarkable improvement (his recent arrest nothwithstanding) and after harping on it week after week, Trump should at least acknowledge that he managed to quit smoking.
As for Chrisí arrest, the general reaction Iíve seen is that it was hardly a surprise. No, itís not. Not to say that he didnít do what heís accused of, but you have to wonder how much his Apprentice notoriety had to do with it. ďOh, itís the loud threatening guy from The Apprentice, weíll have to watch to make sure he doesnít get out of line.Ē
Again, Iím not saying heís innocent, but letís not be too quick to judge.
To the task, people are making fun of you for not doing anything this week aside from lose the card. Well, losing a credit card is an easy mistake (albeit a fairly boneheaded one), especially when youíre worried about a few thousand dollars in gadgets. Then you were told to go get the card and not to come back without it. And you didnít. What else do they expect of you?
I hate to sound like a Chris apologist, because I think he should have been fired by now. But I feel like the guyís getting it in the shorts from this show, and I think thatís not right.
Angie: Question for Trump: who keeps saying Angie is great? Stephanie let her go last week because she didnít think she would help her go after Chris! The last few weeks, sheís been fighting for her life in the boardroom! Once again, Iíd like to watch whatever show Trump is watching. It might be more interesting than this one.
Why were you fired? Because Alex is a bad manager. Thereís a fact that most of these people donít seem to understand, and that is if your manager looks bad, you look bad. This is a possible reason that Trump thinks everyone on a winning team is a star Ė because it takes more than the manager to win. Trump just takes it to the extreme. It also takes more than the manager to lose, which is why two other people come back into the boardroom each week.
If you were overworked, and your manager is as oblivious as Alex, itís up to you to say something! My boss (not that sheís oblivious like Alex! Iím making a point here!) has told me many times to let her know if there is a problem. If she doesnít know about it, she canít fix it. In this case, Alex SHOULD have known there was a problem. You told us that he didnít, so it fell on you to bring it to his attention.
It looks like Bren will join Net Worth next week. That sets the stage nicely for Chris to go one week and Craig the other, and then Alex and Bren to go home after the executive interviews reveal them to be ďtoo smartĒ or some such nonsense. That sets up the Tana-Kendra finale I predicted a couple weeks ago. Everyone is now jumping on THAT bandwagon, except that some are choosing Tana. I stand by my prediction.
