The Apprentice 3: The Donald, the squirrel on his head, street smarts, book smarts. Scott Pepper and Eric Berlin, Patfish: on a mission:

You’re Hired! You’re The Apprentice! Now Get in the Commercial!

The Apprentice’s (NBC) Tana and Kendra Finally Go Toe-to-Toe
Lots going on in this fast-moving penultimate episode of The Apprentice. The upshot is that we have ourselves a finals on, and as I predicted several weeks ago it’s an all-female showdown of Tana vs. Kendra. Craig was the clear trailer…

The Apprentice Bedazzles as Alex Loses That Losing Charm
Last week, Alex taught us the meaning of true friendship, Apprentice-style: first hug, then tear hearts out of chests Indiana Jones Temple of Doom style, then hug. Caring means sharing. This week, we learned about “bedazzlers” and rhinestone-usage in tee-shirt design. Oh…

The Apprentice-Brochure Mania
Looks like Apprentice would-be Chris had a bad week last week. He not only was fired from the competition, seems he got arrested. In a casino. And it wasn’t Trump’s. The Apprentice Contestant “Chris” arrested Monday, April 11,…

The Apprentices Make Pizza
Only they didn’t make the white shrimp pizza as I suggested last week. Meatball pizza seemed to be the big new pizza flavor not that Donald Trump didn’t give a great big hint before task commencement. The task assigned was…

The Apprentice – Episode 309 – “Pandora’s Box”

“The Apprentice” – Episode 307 – Project Putt Putt
