I’m psyched. For my money, this has been the best season since the first, and I’m totally okay with either of these people winning. (Though of course I like Randal better – you’ve got to prefer someone who gets all goopy about the opportunity to hold hands with his wife for a couple of hours.)
So – was the Party City thing a red herring, or the beginning of the end for Randal? I’m guessing it’s editing misdirection – but we’ll find out tonight.
(And, BTW, since Johnny L.A. ain’t an “Apprentice” fan – no need to box spoilers for tonight’s running commentary. Someone will note Spoilers Ahead when the show begins on the East Coast, but we’ll stick with tradition and post openly.)
Trump’s candidates make Martha’s look like kindergartners. Dawna and Bethenny are also doing charity events for their final tasks, and the editing makes them both look lost and incompetent, especially Bethenny.
Martha’s gonna have to do some good acting, to make it look like she’ll be happy with one of them.
I’m rooting for Randal too, but Rebecca looks like the better choice, so far.
I know they give misleading edits during the regular tasks, but has there ever been a misleading edit during the final ones? My impression is that the person with the better edit, however marginally, has won each time. But is that correct?
If so, things look pretty bad for Randel.
Randal’s who I’m pulling for but I also think we might see a double hiring here with one of them getting preference over what they want to run. But I’m in the same house as everyone else where I’ll be happy no matter the outcome.
I think Jim’s interview with the Senior Vice-President did him in, combined with the dinner he’d previously had with the President/CEO. He (the latter) said that Jim described himself as “a sappling in need of nurture” and framed his relations with people in terms of “truth and beauty”, while she (the former) said that his strategic gameplay was not only ill-conceived but disturbing on a psychological level. The CCO (Chief Creative Officer) summed it all up for me. “People like that,” she said, “consume an incredible amount of time”.
I still believe that both Randal and Rebecca will get hired. I also believe that the less-than-perfect Randal we were shown last week was mostly editing misdirection – the producers are smart enough to want there to be at least a bit of suspense. The edit he gets this time will be the dead giveaway – if he starts off strong, with the skies clearing and the Outback guy happy, that will pretty much feel like vindication to me.
I was sorry to see Jim go on A:MS. He was a one-man freak show, but a fun freak show. The good news is, of course, that we see him “working” for Bethenny on her final task. So he’s still not gone from our screens. Which is good, because if he was, I’d turn off the show immediately; he’s the only entertaining thing on the stupid show.
Just kidding. I’m a watcher by force. The Bus Wife will NOT miss this show. So since I’m stuck watching, I thought I might as well hang out here and see what you all think. Me? I’m the Donald, I’m, just hiring the best looking chick.
