Moving along, we see mostly what we’ve already seen, but Sean brings up some good points I don’t think were mentioned in the original show. He asks about the name of Kinetic’s dish. While he and Trump think “Paradise Pollo Bowl” is not a bad name, they do note that it isn’t as self-explanatory as Arrow’s “Tortilla Bowl.” Heidi admits they had talked about that. Of course Marisa mentions that she wanted to use Derek’s “Bravado Bowl” but no one listened to her. Aaron points out that the key to winning the task is converting the customers into sales of the featured product. He adds that having to explain what’s in the dish uses up time, which translates to fewer sales.
The conversation turns to Marisa, and during the finger-pointing, Heidi tries to be diplomatic by saying that, while she might not be good at sales, Marisa will make an outstanding senator someday. Trump balks, asking, “You’re saying she’s great to run a country but not a company? Give me a break!” Of course, as we all know, Marisa is fired.
In her exit interview, Marisa describes herself as someone with great ideas who had a generally positive rapport with everyone. She says she is someone who won’t just sit back and go with the flow, that she will dissent when she thinks something is wrong. She describes her final task again, if for no other reason so we can hear about chicken suits just one last time. She insists that “one or two chickens by the side of the road could really make a stir about the bowl.” Sorry, Marisa – when I hear “chickens” and “side of the road,” I’m thinking “redneck cookbook.”
To illustrate how isolated from her team Marisa was, we see a shot of Team Kinetic preparing for the Boardroom without her. When Heidi asks her team what they could have done differently, Derek offers, “Chicken suits?” Lest they take him seriously, Derek clarifies that he only mentioned that because that’s all he heard all day: “Chicken suit, chicken suit, chicken suit, Bravado Bowl, Bravado Bowl, Bravado Bowl, move on, move on, MOVE ON!” he says. Heh. He’s a hoot.
Marisa continues her exit interview, saying that she was very much prepared for the ambush that awaited her, and that she felt she had a solid defense. She pointed out that both Trump and Sean admired her spirit, but admits when it was clear that everyone on her team wanted her fired, she felt Trump’s hands were tied.
She felt that the best part of her Apprentice experience was the personal growth she had. She states that she learned she is not a person who can play a game, and that she has to make sure to maintain her integrity. She admits to having political aspirations and says she plans to run for Congress. In true political form, she says that despite being fired, she believes Trump would be a great president and that she would support his candidacy. She feels he could get this country back on track. “Trump in 2008!” she suggests enthusiastically.
And so, gentle readers, that wraps it up for this week’s Extras. Next week, The Apprentice will be pre-empted by some football game or something, but rest assured that it, and I with it, will return the following week with all your Trumptastic high(and low)lights. As I have no more to say for now, I will pass the proverbial rock to someone else. See ya!
