The Apprentice 3, Episode 10: Pizza My MindPage 2
View Printable version of this article
Over at Net Worth, Stephanie is worried about getting the pizzas to those construction workers in Brooklyn. She wants to take Angie with her, but the guys say it would leave them short staffed. Angie says in an interview that Steph was preoccupied with this order to an annoying degree. She grabs one of the models, then takes the subway to deliver the pizzas. Man, that would take a long time. Wouldn’t it have been better to take a cab? Sure, it would be an expensive cab ride, but they wouldn’t have lost so much time. Oh, and to make matters worse, Stephanie has never ridden the subway in New York. She finally gets to the construction site and apologizes that the pizza is so late. She says in an interview that she could have sold the pizza on the subway, but it meant a lot to her to keep her word. Maybe she should go back, grab a stack of pizzas, and go back on the subway.
Alex is still flirting while the phone rings. Chris is making the pizzas, and when Alex goes to talk to him about the status of the orders, Chris yells at him about it. Alex tells him rather calmly not to yell at him, and wouldn’t you know it? Chris loses his temper! Chris wigs out and tells Alex to get the f#$% out of his face. Alex says in an interview that he felt physically threatened by Chris’s outburst. He adds that Chris is like a big kid, with a short fuse and a huge sense of pride.
To make matters worse, Net Worth’s models are all clumped together outside NYU not doing much of anything. Carolyn spots them and is not impressed. Carolyn then goes to the pizza stand and gets a slice. They give her the tour of the kitchen, including a pizza that the guys dropped on the floor. Nice!
With the challenge over, the candidates gather in the suite. Alex tells Stephanie about his altercation with Chris. Stephanie is shocked. Chris’s behavior, she says, is not acceptable, and Trump would not like it.
The candidates file into the boardroom, and I have to say, things are looking good for Magna since we’ve hardly seen them this week. Net Worth tells Trump that they’re confident they’ll win. All Craig will say is that Magna did “fine.” Carolyn reports that Magna did indeed do a fine job. They sold $653.12 total. And what about Net Worth? George tells us that they sold $523.90 in pizza – Magna wins, and Bren is exempt. Trump asks Stephanie – in front of the other team – who was responsible for the loss. She fingers Chris. But enough about the losers! Magna’s prize is breakfast with Trump in his apartment.
In the suite, Stephanie tells Angie about how Chris threatened “to beat up Alex.” That is taking it way too far. He was intimidating Chris, but he certainly never said he’d beat him up. Angie then finds Chris to ask if it’s true. Chris denies it, then goes to talk to Alex about it. Alex tells him that even though he might not have intended to hit him, he felt threatened. Chris says that’s not true, then walks off. He says in an interview that his view of Alex has changed. He’s not someone he can trust.
Magna goes to Trump’s shiny apartment. Kendra calls the place “bling bling” and theorizes that Trump was a rapper in a former life. Trump joins the candidates for breakfast and tells them that the apartment was harder to build than all of Trump Tower because of all of the details. The table they’re eating at, for example, had to be raised in from outside the building on a special crane. Craig jokingly asks who the project manager was on that task. And did Trump stay on budget? Trump says the budget was unlimited, yet he still exceeded it. Tana says that it was great getting to know Trump outside of the boardroom, plus it gave her a chance to show him more of her personality.
Meanwhile, in the tension filled suite, Stephanie talks to Alex about the boardroom. She says Chris needs to go, but Angie won’t go after him, so she’s bringing Alex. Alex tells her that might backfire on her. He says in an interview that Chris has a lot of potential in business, far more than Steph does. Alex tells Steph that if she brings him in, he won’t just say negative things about Chris.
It’s boardroom time, and Stephanie looks really chipper. Alex tells Trump he’s surprised they lost. He thinks Magna’s decision to sell to businesses put them over the edge. Stephanie says that Chris was very hard to manage. Plus, he threatened Alex. Alex tells Trump what happened. Chris says he’d never hit Alex, though he does own up to the swearing. And where was Stephanie when all of this was going on? Delivering those pizzas to Brooklyn, that’s where.
Trump says that Chris is a little rough around the edges. He asks about the chewing tobacco, and Chris tells him that he quit, as promised. He has indeed not been chewing.
Trump asks Stephanie if she’s tough enough to handle this group, and of course she thinks she is. Angie doesn’t think so, “Not at this level.” Carolyn asks why all of the models were clumped together. Angie adds that they should have passed out flyers in Union Square, and Chris says that one of the models actually asked why they weren’t passing them out in Union Square. Well, Chris and Angie, why didn’t you say something?
Stephanie sends Angie back to the suite, leaving Chris and Alex to go to the boardroom. Trump tells Stephanie to get ready to fight for herself. She better listen! George is surprised Angie survived, since she didn’t contribute much. Trump says he might have taken Angie after she was so negative to Steph. Carolyn, though, is not surprised. She adds that Chris has a temper that is likely not suitable for the company.
The candidates return to the boardroom. Alex says that Chris has a short fuse, and was hard for Steph to manage. Ooh, a double play. Well done, Alex – you nailed both of them. Stephanie counters that Chris was inappropriate for threatening Alex. Chris says he absolutely did not threaten Alex. Alex answers that his perception was to feel physically threatened. He also says that when someone tells him to get the f out of his face, that remark usually precedes a punch.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
