View Printable version of this article
A worried Elizabeth notices that Jennifer C. and Sandy have been conspiring together all day. And indeed they are. Jennifer broaches the subject of bringing Sandy with her to the boardroom “for support.” No fool she, Sandy thinks that’s a bad idea and tells Jennifer that if she puts her in the line of firing (sorry for the pun), Jennifer shouldn’t expect her to help. Sandy adds that she doesn’t think it was her fault at all that they lost. Right, except that it kind of was, since they had their lowest score in décor, and she was in charge of it, but who’s counting?
In the boardroom, Jennifer goes on her “who needs sleep tirade.” Trump says that by doing the cleaning themselves, they saved money, which is good, but that it might not have been worth it since they needed to be fresh and friendly the next day. Jennifer M. says that they lost because they had a limited amount of time and chose a complicated concept that was tough to execute. They got a recommendation from Zagat’s to do a different kind of cuisine, but Jennifer C. ignored it. Jennifer C. denies that Lil Stacy and Jennifer M. gave her that recommendation, which is just not true. We saw it! Exasperated, Jennifer C. says that after six hours of deliberation, the only other suggestion Jennifer M. and Lil Stacy came up with was pizza. Elizabeth backs up Jennifer M. and Stacy, saying that they did indeed give the Zagat’s recommendation to Jennifer.
Bill says that the men and women had comparable locations, but that while the women provided “tense, hovering service,” the men were relaxed and friendly. Jennifer C. still can’t believe they lost, since the men set fire to menus and had such a hard time serving. The difference, Bill says, is that the men have a camaraderie that the women’s team lacks.
Ivana says that Jennifer C. didn’t work nearly as hard as the rest of the team and took constant smoke breaks. Ivana says she did more to lead the team than Jennifer C. ever did, and the two women argue loudly. Trump wonders why Jennifer C. couldn’t lead her team more effectively and adds, “The men are just better than you right now.” He asks Jennifer C. to choose those going with her to the boardroom, and as we know, she picks Stacy and Elizabeth. Bill questions her decision, reminding her that this isn’t about friendship, and Trump offers to let her choose a third person, but she doesn’t waver, sticking with Stacy and Elizabeth.
When the three return to the boardroom, most of the footage we already saw in the episode. Bill asks Jennifer about her decision to ignore the Zagat’s recommendation. Jennifer says that Asian fusion can be complicated, but it could be as simple as chicken sate. Then she says that Ivana and Maria insisted on serving more sophisticated food. Bill jumps right on that, saying that if that’s the case, she should have taken Ivana and Maria to the boardroom with her. Jennifer talks about her strong track record in the previous challenges, but Carolyn’s not interested, saying that they need to focus on this week’s task.
Jennifer insists that the only thing that went wrong was that they lost, and that this task went more smoothly than any before it. She should really know better than to downplay losing in front of Donald Trump. Bill says that members of the team should take responsibility for their mistakes, like Sandy with the décor. Jennifer insists that the décor was beautiful. Trump dismisses that, saying, “Let’s forget it. You lost.” Jennifer is fired, and after the candidates leave the room, Carolyn says that taking Stacy and Elizabeth to the boardroom was a really dumb move.
In her cab ride home, Jennifer C. says that being fired by none other than Donald Trump was “crazy.” She says it was a great experience, and she has no regrets. Maybe she shouldn’t have led with an iron fist. She did? Huh? She also adds that she should have taken Ivana with her to the boardroom, which makes no sense at all. Then she says how incredible it was to have dinner at Donald Trump’s home and to sit next to him, an experience that few people get. She says she’ll miss the men, but not the women. The women, she says, are “lying, dramatic, backstabbing” people. She concludes by saying that she’s proud of her experience, and that she was “fired by the best.”
And that’s it for another episode of The Apprentice. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for the next episode. How will poor Pamela handle joining Apex? And what does Anna Kournikova have to do with QVC? We’ll find out soon!
