Knit a rug? *L* Although I agree with the reading a book part. Still, I will watch just to see who wins.

Just for everyone's info...the show is repeated on NBC during the weekend and on CNBC. Last week's show. So this weekend will have last week's show. Same with CNBC on Monday I think. Check your t.v. listings as I'm too lazy to do so myself. But I thought it was overkill....NBC has nothing better than to repeat the Apprentice on the weekend? And I thought CNBC was just doing a profile on the show when I was flipping channels and saw it. But nope, it's the whole show.

*L* I read this in today's paper.

Quote:
And now for something completely the same: a scheduling change!

Tonight's broadcast of The Apprentice is a rerun of last week's episode, not a fresh instalment, as some listings would have you believe.

In an effort to avoid Fox's American Idol, NBC has moved The Apprentice to Thursday's at 9 p.m., when new episodes will air beginning tomorrow.

As for tonight's instalment, not to let any cats out of the bag, but I think Sam's days may finally be numbered.

For those of you keeping track, by the way (and really, now, who isn't?), tonight will be the third time this episode has aired in the past week. There is no such thing, evidently, as too much Donald Trump on TV.


Hmmm...I think katya8 might have something to say about that. *L*

Yeah, I happened upon the re-runs myself..gosh..overkill!

However, it does free me back up for my regular Thirsty Thursdays Wink Eh, Ill jsut stay home since its all wintery but you know, now Ill have a back up at least, if I need it.

My thought exactly on the hair thing...and its funny, I worked for a guy who had tons o cash and a bad rug myself...and when he wsnt around, you bet people said..MAN, even without cash I would go get that fixed...I just dont get it...its odd.

Well, some people just aren't overly concerned with their physical appearance. They have more important things to concern themselves with. But...Donald Trump is busy AND vain, so that's not his excuse. *heh*

He should delegate more and have the time to fix the physical appearance thing...which works for his vanity. Maybe he just doesnt want to really show everyone how great looking he is behind his incredibly aweful do.

It's like watching a car crash. It's horrific but you can't look away ...

That's true, but I'd liken it more to finding a container of some formerly edible product you find hidden in the back of your refrigerator whilst doing an annual clean-up job. You look inside to see some new life form and say to yourself "what the hell is that?"

Well,okay..ya got me, but you know....
someone had to put that possibility out there somewhere.
I, myself could care less how much money the guy had....the thought makes me gag. Lucky for him some women really dont care.

Okay, so I missed the first half of the show. Came in when the women were being spoken to....interesting.

Oh quinn, quinn, quinn! Surely you aren't that naive? *teasing smile*

It's more like "lucky for him some women really don't care as long as he's their sugar daddy".

Very Happy

How is the winner going to garner any respect when they become the president of one of Trumps companies? Oh and that's another thing I'd like to know - what company? Some small crappy little department in the arsehole of nowhere? Now that would be funny.

Well, I watched, and was appalled.

This show illustrates a lot of what is wrong with our society; reaching your goals requires doing whatever it takes, which translates to:

-- if your cleavage isn't sufficiently enhanced, then show your ass;

-- don't bother being straightforward and honest about your intentions, that's a waste of time. Lie like hell and get the money in the bank;

-- screw your partner before he screws you (isn't this essentially the premise we followed in Iraq, BTW);

-- be sure and be conspicuous in enjoying the spoils of the victory.

You see, I knew some of these kinds of shysters and thieves personally.

They worked for a local company you may have heard of: Enron.

Here's a take from USA Today::

Quote:
The women's strategy was to boost Planet Hollywood alcohol sales by any means possible, including getting sauced with the customers. They increased total revenue 31%. The men increased revenue 7%, never thinking to assign one of their own at the bar.

The men focused on hawking Planet Hollywood merchandise and had Kwame Jackson autographing basketballs. Customers weren't lied to, but the implication was that Jackson came out of the NBA, not out of Harvard with an MBA.

The real victor may have been Planet Hollywood International, which managed not to let the contestants drive it into its third Chapter 11 filing in five years.

If reality were like The Apprentice, the actual manager of Planet Hollywood would be an attractive woman. Instead, it's Roland Rutjens, who told USA TODAY that Planet Hollywood often has actors and musicians sign merchandise. But he says he would never allow an employee to mislead customers.

"Maybe that's why (Planet Hollywood) isn't doing better," Trump said in an interview Thursday. Shocked

Rutjens says the cameras and lights of the TV crew made Jackson a believable celebrity. Duped 12-year-olds may have the last laugh, assuming his autograph is worth something on eBay.

Rutjens says the men came up with solid ideas for running a restaurant, such as offering motivational incentives to the staff. But the task seemed to rely far more on salesmanship than on leadership. The men could not overcome the appeal of women pushing shots, Rutjens says.

The women called themselves the "Planet Hollywood Shooter Girls," which they said was modeled after Hooters waitresses. Drinking with customers is a "no-no, a terminable offense" in the real world, Rutjens says, and the restaurant would face a lawsuit if a customer was sold too many shots only to get run over by a taxi.

PDiddie: Interesting article.

Trump is an ass. That's my opinion not necessarily the truth. Very Happy

I'm gonna watch just to see how the women handle the crash and burn when it happens to them...IF it happens to them.

Lotsa childishness, it's really awkward watching a lot of scenes, but, like they say about a car wreck, it's hard to turn away.

What can I say? I like trash I guess!

quinn1: Put it this way, not watching the show certainly ain't going to hurt ya.

true..but, where would I find true entertainment value at the expense of others?


BTW...the teams mix up next go round so...we can watch the women in a group crash and burn but, I think they'll be more easily picked off when dissarranged.
