The Apprentice 3 Special: Recapping the RecapPage 2
View Printable version of this article
In the Airstream trailer task, we learn that Audrey was in charge of the money, and through an accounting error, lost $71. Tana says that she did all of the math by hand in long columns on a piece of paper. We already know that Michael had a hard time selling massages, but we learn that Stephanie did, too. She tries to hustle people on the street, and when they say no, her response is, “Aw, come on!” Bren says that her selling was more like whining and begging. Stephanie, he says, is a detriment to the team, whereas Michael, for all his laziness, basically doesn’t affect the team at all.
After Magna loses, the team plots against Stephanie. Erin says all she does is cover her own butt. Kendra would prefer lazy Michael to negative Stephanie. Bren says in an interview that during the Apprentice process, he has started smoking again for the first time in years, which says a lot about the level of stress he’s under. Despite the team’s efforts to ditch Stephanie, Michael is fired. In his final interview, he says that his team ganged up on him. Considering that they ganged up on Stephanie, I’m not sure how right he is.
We don’t get to see much new in the graffiti task, just that Bren looks absolutely silly in the white suit that protects his clothes from the paint. Tara gets fired, and in an interview, says she conducted herself well, but that there’s always room for improvement.
In the mini golf task, Audrey over-delegates and doesn’t take ownership of anything. But at Magna, we learn that Erin and Kendra are clashing. Erin thinks Kendra micromanages, and Kendra seems equally frustrated by Erin. Audrey gets fired, and in an interview, says that she really admires Donald Trump and has what it takes to work for him.
Next, the teams re-shuffle. Kendra sends Stephanie and Erin over to Net Worth. Then, when Trump asks Chris who he’d like to get rid of , he tries to send Stephanie back. Too funny! He ends up sending over Craig and Tana. Later, in the suite, Tana tries to further the re-shuffle. She wants Erin to move her bedroom to the other side of the suite so she’s with Net Worth and Tana can be with Magna. Erin says no, and in an interview says she thinks Magna is secretly trying to get rid of her and Stephanie but won’t tell her directly. Regardless, she’s not moving.
My ex-boyfriend John tries to dominate the negotiations in the charity task and pitches the same idea to every celebrity. Gene Simmons agrees to appear on Net Worth’s show, and Stephanie fawns over him and asks to see his famous long tongue. He complies and acts predictably skeevy. John is fired for messing up the negotiations. In an interview, he says that he played with honesty and integrity. He probably also says how much he cherishes the time we had together and that it’s better to have loved and lost and all of that.
Nine candidates remain. Who will be the next Apprentice? Well, that’s up in the air right now, since early front runner John is now out of the picture. Several people emailed me to say that they think it will be Kendra. I don’t see that happening. Although Kendra has been great in the past few episodes, before that we hardly saw her at all. I think that if she were in the final two, we’d have seen more of her in the editing. I have my eye on Alex, Erin, Tana, and Angie. Once we get down to the final four, I promise to write up a full analysis and my prediction of who will win. Read it, my friends – I correctly predicted both Bill and Kelly would take the title.
Next week, the teams do a Home Depot related task for a “great reward.” And who would sass Donald Trump? Speculation at RNO Manor is that it will be either Chris or Craig. That’s possible… but it might also be the negative Stephanie. We’ll find out on Thursday! Oh, and make a note – the show starts half an hour early so that NBC can premiere the American version of The Office. I don’t know if the show will be any good, but I can say that the BBC version of the show is one of the funniest things I have ever seen.
