"Live Season Finale" -
time we left Sean having lost Andrea to a fit of
coughing up blood and Lee being grated by Lys from the
Denis Leary Firefighter Foundation.
We check in at the doctors office and immediately find
that all Andrea is dealing with is an irritation of her
mucosal lining. The doctor assures her that this is most
likely nothing and only if it persists should she worry.
With that Andrea is back in action and her relief to be
put back to work adds to her sincerity of wanting Sean
Denis Learys Lys is breathing down Lees neck. She
wants to know how halftime is being organized and how
the shirt off my back auction will operate. Lenny
starts to explain via example but confuses Michael J.
Fox with Jamie Foxx. Lys pounces on this and asks Lee
who he plans to have handle player relations. Lee
appoints Lenny and Lys is concerned with Lees judge of
capability and character thinking that Lenny may not be
the best choice
[Russians may know hockey, but Lys is probably right
Barenaked Ladies have arrived!
[The band gentlemen, not the real thing]
Sean is greeting the band while Tarek is discussing with
the SLS speaker company spokesperson, how their display
space will be organized and how their product will be
promoted. George Ross is concerned that Sean may not be
hands-on enough, but Tarek is doing a competent job.
Back at the hockey game. Lee is doing some heavy
delegating. He has written the script but it lacks drama
and he will have to revise it. Lenny started telling
some jokes, such as their supplies being stolen. You can
believe that no one at the meeting is amused. When asked
how he is going to get Jaime Pressly on ice, Lee says
she can take off her stilettos and put on ice skates.
South, south, south. Thats the only place this meeting
is going and Roxanne acknowledges the personal
After the debacle Lenny and Pepi head downstairs to
place equipment in lockers for the celebs, but they do
not have a size chart. So what do they do? What any
smart person would do. Guess
No, not as is you should
take a guess
As in they decided to guess.
[This task blunder is brought to you by Drano. When you
manage to fill up a toilet this quickly, even with Drano
you dont have a prayer.]
Seeking competence we head back to Sean and Synergy and
Tarek and Sean are looking for the CD Music to show off
the SLS speakers. They cant find it. Sean panics and
calls Tammy. Tammy comes back to the room and spots the
CD in 5 seconds flat. All is well.
[Now for more celebrity screw-ups that Dick Clarks
Bloopers and Practical Jokes]
Jason Priestly arrives, and no one is there to greet
him. While Jason wanders, Jaime Pressly arrives and Lee
comes out to get her discovering that Lenny is not
answering his cell phone when celebrity reception calls
him. Lee brings Miss Jaime to Lenny who then suggests
they go see all the celeb athletes
while they are
[Donations are now being taken for eye surgery for the
viewers that saw Denis Leary and John McEnroe naked]
While no one is caught without a towel or t-shirt, the
awkwardness is painful. Carolyn is confused as to why
Lee would even have Lenny or Pepi on his team. Hell meet
At Synergy, things are just kicking off and the Pontiac
spokesperson realizes that is no Pontiac signage at the
front. Oops. Meanwhile, Sean is getting some good luck
hairspray while Andrea is bringing the guests to the
Pontiac vehicles so they can view the features before
the auction. Champagne is flowing and things for the
moment are ok.
Back at Hockey Lee has forgotten to greet Trump at the
door, but meets him on the upper concourse. After some
smooth player introductions, the game goes off without a
hitch and the first auction is upon us. Lenny barely
delivers Jaime Pressly to the right location and she is
perturbed, but nonetheless the car sells extremely well.
Lys as a rep of the Denis Leary Firefighters foundation
for the first time is somewhat pleased.
Trump calls Sean and Sean is already waiting for him on
the Helipad. Trump arrives and they both head down to
the auction. Bids exceed 40k and the transition to the
concert goes off without a hitch. We may be on the verge
of the largest final task landslide in Apprentice
history, but boardroom arguments remain.
In the Boardroom part one, we have an academic showdown.
Sean is confident that he has won and believes he won as
soon as the teams were selected. Carolyn question Lee on
his choices and Lee admits that his choices were risky
but feels that especially with Lenny he picked people
that would dies to see him become the apprentice. When
asked why he is better than Lee, Sean jumped to age. He
is 33 and has more experience than Lee who is 22. Lee
argues that his age leaves him farther from his peak
than Sean and that he was a stellar student, having a
4.0 and Cornell. Sean argues that he has the same to
which Lee argues he was the president of his national
honor society to which Sean argues he was valedictorian.
With that we move to L.A. and the live boardroom finale.
Tarek feels that Sean is a fantastic leader and stands
fully behind his apprenticeship.
Tammy sees Seans outward display of passions as a show
for his passion for all things and believes it just
shows an ounce of what he could bring to the Trump
Lenny stands by Lee suggesting that he is gold and Gold
always appreciates in value and thus Trump should invest
Charmaine feels both candidates are strong, but thinks
Sean is the better choice.
Trump presents the job opportunities:
1. The construction of a new Trump Hotel in Waikiki,
2. A SoHo construction project which is also a Trump
International Hotel and Tower.
Both Sean and Lee feel this decision is a no-brainer and
both wish to learn the most from Trump possible by
staying in New York City.
Lee argues that he should be picked because he has done
more than anyone else. He was PM 4 times, believes he is
definitely better than Sean, and feels that his ability
and youth make him the true and accurate definition of
Sean believes he has the aptitude and attitude to prove
he is better than Lee and has been working for Fortune
500 companies brokering million dollar deals for the
past 10 years. Trump asks him if he should pick someone
who so outwardly shows his love and after mild pressing
Sean says that he is going to marry Tammy
[This is more Seans bravado than fact. They are
currently just dating.]
Trump then receives the results of the peoples vote
which is a good thing considering that Trump Jr., Ivanka,
George and Carolyn wouldnt budge and give him a name.
Trump does no read the numbers but he does say that it
is very one sided and that he agrees with the at home
Without Further ado Trump lays down his verdict.
Lee, Youre Fired! Sean, Youre HIRED!
Sean erupts laughing screaming and jumping up and down.
He runs outside to his new car, Pontiac of course, and
still can not contain himself.
With that the Apprentice legacy continues. Bill, Kelly,
Kendra, Randal and now Sean have all ascended to the
Apprentice throne. Who will be number 6? L.A. will be
the locale for the competition and good ol GSNN will be
the locale for the recaps. Thanks for watching, thanks
for reading and keep dreaming like a billionaire.
