The Apprentice 4, Episode 6 Extras: Trump's Grand Slamby Jenn Brasler -- 10/31/2005
View Printable version of this article
For the record, James and I are still together (as are Brian and I). This is mostly because I don’t think he should have been fired. If he were a loser, I would’ve dumped him in a second. I’m not that loyal.
Felisha and Alla are in the suite, waiting for other Jen or Kristi to return from the Boardroom. Felisha says that Kristi was not the reason they lost the Zathura task; she wants Kristi to come back. Alla does, too. Unfortunately for them, Jen is the one who returns. At least the guys are happy. Jen interviews that, yes, she made mistakes, and she was concerned going into the Boardroom, but she was also confident because she knew she had more potential than Kristi. Jen tells the women that they need to start with a clean slate and come together. Didn’t they have this discussion last week? Alla says everything will be fine, since she’s going to be the project manager for the next task. She says that the team needs to function as a cohesive unit.
In the morning, after getting the call from Rona, Clay tells the women that they need to pick a project manager before they head to the Boardroom to meet with Trump (as they believe). Alla says they already did. She says that she told her team she was ready to be PM and she thinks they’re all behind her.
The men meet to pick a PM, but apparently six of them want the job. I’m guessing that four of them are Josh, Mark, Adam, and James, since none of them has done it yet. Markus apparently wanted to do it again, but I have no idea who the sixth person was. Anyway, Josh says that the obvious solution is to let him pick the PM. Hee. They decide to draw a name out of a hat instead. Josh interviews that he’s been the second banana in most of the previous tasks, so he’s ready to be in charge. Markus announces that drawing a name makes sense, since it will alleviate the problem of a possible tie if they vote. Markus winds up with three votes (really?), James with one, and Josh with four, so he’s the PM. Josh is ready to be in control and plans to give 110 percent. He’s concerned with having the right people around him.
In the Boardroom, Carolyn reshuffles the team. Nothing new here.
We see the Trump Lesson of the Week again. Why do they keep showing this in the extras? They never put anything new in.
Capital Edge sets up for the task. We see Felisha and Clay clash again. Randal says that Felisha and Alla are learning what the men already know - Clay can be difficult to work with. Clay confronts Alla about moving things around that he’s already set up. I hate the way he talks to her here, like she’s his gal pal and after this task, they’re going to go watch Sex and the City and talk about how cute Johnny Damon is. He just doesn’t strike me as professional here. Alla isn’t impressed either and has to play Mommy.
Fast-forward to the tasks. Over at Excel, Brian complains about the batting cage. Rebecca wonders if anyone knows how much money they’ve made. Lots of baseball playing. Mark admits to Bill that he doesn’t know what’s going on with the rest of the task. Jen isn’t selling anything. Bill doesn’t think the team gets the point of the task.
The teams get the results. Excel sucked. Trump calls them embarrassing.
Excel mopes back in the suite. Mark calls the loss “a kick in the gut with a golf shoe.” I would suggest a drinking game in which people drink whenever they hear a reference to games or a sports metaphor, but everyone would wind up too drunk to finish reading this paragraph. Jen says that there were too many people in line and too few people doing closings. She interviews that the task was supposed to be all about sales, but it turned into a clinic. She thinks that Josh missed the mark. Mark interviews that Trump might wind up firing them all. The Irony Fairy ignored Betsy this week, but the Foreshadowing Fairy is alive and kicking.
Capital Edge flies to Montauk for their reward. Felisha says that if she’d missed this reward, she would have been really upset. She’s a pilot, and she loved flying on the $35 million jet. The team heads out on a boat. As I suspected, Felisha and Alla are sitting because they’re not enjoying the rocking. Alla says that if she hadn’t taken Dramamine, she would be sick. Felisha, unfortunately, wanted to be tough and didn’t take anything, so now she’s not feeling very well. She gets sick over the side of the boat as the guys tease her a little. Clay tells her she shouldn’t eat any more crackers. Felisha laughs this off.
Clay thinks this is the best reward yet. Mostly, of course, this is because he wanted to show Josh that he was wrong about Clay being the weakest player on the team. Adam catches a fish and Markus encourages him to kiss it, saying that it’s tradition. Adam finally gives the kiss a little peck. Someone (one of the guys teaching them fishing, I think) says that no one ever actually does that. Hee!
Excel heads to the Boardroom. Trump reminds them (and us) that this was the worst defeat ever. He asks Josh for his opinion. Josh says that the problem was that they didn’t sell anything. James takes credit for the baseball idea. Rebecca says that the batting cage was a big draw, but it was also a hindrance. Trump agrees that there was no room to maneuver. He asks whose idea it was to put up the cage. James admits that it was his. Trump says that James was showing off by hitting balls.
Trump asks if anyone considered that having a batting cage in the store might be dangerous. Marshawn says that she thought that, too, especially since the cage was right at her back. Trump notes that Rebecca is already injured and asks if she was concerned about being injured again by a baseball. She replies that after breaking her ankle, she wasn’t as concerned about breaking another bone. Trump notes that she should have been more concerned. Rebecca says that she did have to pull a few kids aside to make sure they didn’t get hurt.1 2 3 Next-->
