The Apprentice 2, Episode 13 Extras: The Quality of Ivana is Quite StrainedPage 3
View Printable version of this article
George thinks that Kelly, Ivana, and Kevin all did kind of a bad job, but Ivana at least took a risk while the others did nothing. Carolyn disagrees 100% with what Ivana did, reminding Trump that he’s looking for someone to run one of his companies.
The members of Apex traipse back in. Trump asks Ivana if he should fire Kevin or Kelly. Ivana chooses Kelly. Trump asks Kevin who he should fire; Kevin says it’s close, but he should fire Ivana. Trump asks him why he’s better than Ivana. Kevin thinks that he’s a better leader. Trump asks Ivana if he is and Ivana says no. She also thinks she’s better than Kelly, even though she lost. Though she has losses as a leader, she’s done a good job as a team member. She may have a bad track record, but that makes her “hungrier” to prove herself. Kevin speaks up that he’s already proven himself. Point for Kevin.
Everyone goes through his or her track record. Ivana wants Trump to evaluate her performance on the most recent task. Trump points out that her track record is important. George says that everyone is playing the “coulda shoulda woulda” game, but it all comes down to the fact that Jennifer and Sandy whipped them. Carolyn asks if anyone is going to defend him- or herself.
Ivana reiterates that she thinks Apex contains three strong players. Trump asks if she agrees that Kevin is a good guy. Ivana pauses. You just said he was a strong player! If you pause that long, there’s no point in giving an answer. It’s pretty obvious what you think. She thinks it’s a tough question. What she really means is, “If I say ‘yes,’ Trump will want to know if he’s better than me. If I say ‘no,’ I’ll be contradicting myself. I’ll just keep quiet for once.” Ivana thinks that Kelly is stronger than Kevin, but Trump says that Kelly’s strength isn’t important at this point. Ivana thinks that she’s the strongest candidate and that Trump should take a chance on her. He tells her that he’s not hiring a stripper (hee) and that she made bad decision. Ivana is fired. Darn, I wanted to see her Jan Brady “Jenn, Jenn, Jenn!” moment again.
Wait, I take that back. I shouldn’t ask for any more Ivana footage than is already there. Because you guys? Ivana’s confessional is four minutes long. Four minutes. Maria and Wes’ combined confessionals weren’t even two minutes long. She won’t stop talking. Ivana talks about the fight between herself and Kevin, claiming that she carried him through the Levi’s task. Um, okay. She thinks that she’s creative and should have been more vocal about her strong points. She thinks on her feet and knows that Trump values that; she claims that Kevin and Kelly have a heard time with spontaneous thinking.
Ivana continues that the above, with a track record, is more important than good degrees. Yes, but your track record wasn’t exactly wonderful. She says that she should have mentioned in the boardroom that Kevin bullies people into getting his way. First of all, if you’re so good at thinking on your feet, why do you keep saying, “I should have said this.” Second of all, we’ve never seen Kevin bully anyone. Ivana says that when Elizabeth was the project manager, Kevin intimidated her. I wouldn’t call that intimidation; I would call it giving her a push to make a decision. Ivana calls this bad form because Trump doesn’t like it when people are intimidating.
Ivana’s still talking. She says that if she had to do everything over again, she would disregard the competition and “shoot for the moon.” She had an amazing experience and appreciates the opportunity. She thinks that Carolyn was the hardest on her about the stripping incident (good observation there, Ivana). She argues that she was wearing more clothing than Sandy and Jennifer. No, you weren’t. Ivana agrees that she was bundling a gimmick with the product and wound up selling the gimmick. However, everyone does something to get attention. It wasn’t her proudest moment. No kidding. Ivana has no regrets and thinks that Trump made a mistake in firing her. She’s stronger than Kevin and Kelly. Overall, she’s glad that she had this experience.
Next week, we’re in the final four, and two people will go home. Also, Ivana might still be talking.
