"Back Against the
Wal-Mart" - May 15
Jumping into the task, Trump
doubles the pressure adding Microsoft to the Wal-Mart
deal. Bill Rancic and Ivanka will be Trump eyes and
ears. The teams will be responsible for creating 3d
environments within Wal-Mart to advertise and sell the
XBOX 360 gaming console.
The boys are loving the video game task and Seans
juices are flowing as he steps up to be project manager.
He and Lee decide that it would be a good idea to have a
circular set up and use parts of the XBOX 360 logo to
serve as the ceiling and floor. They have made a
conscious decision to outsource all of their work and
Lee is confident that they will deliver a victory.
The girls on the other hand are doing very little
outsourcing. In fact, with Tammy as their project
manager, the girls are shopping inside of Wal-Mart
purchasing mirrors and other knick-knacks. Bill notices
that Allie seems to be showing a lack of respect for
Tammy. Very simply put, the girls are in trouble and are
heading downhill fast.
The men of Gold Rush are sitting down chowing on
McDonalds and feel confident that everything will fall
[They obviously have never watched any reality shows
Within a couple of hours they are receiving a phone call
from the gentleman responsible for their specially
constructed floor telling them that he will be 7 hours
late with the delivery. Sean begins to flip out but Lee
calms him down and pushes the vendor to complete and
deliver the floor as soon as possible.
[Hey, it happens. Often with an SH in front]
Synergy is trying to put together a theme of the XBOX
360 awards, but with timing of the essence Tammy is
rightfully worried that things might not come together
in time. More so, Tammy is convinced that neither Allie
nor Roxanne is on her side.
[Take a lesson from Randal from last season. There is
only ONE Apprentice. No one is on your side.]
Allie and Roxanne act like foolish sorority girls saying
that they have never rolled their eyes at her as they
were accused and that they are fully on Tammys side.
[Strike that comment. Allie and Roxanne are acting far
more foolish than sorority girls]
Sean and Lee are still waiting their floor and when it
finally arrives they are in rush mode to complete their
booth. But wait, where is the ceiling? They are told the
ceiling will take another 2 hours. That would be a
problem. Eventually, Lee and Sean are forced to go with
out the ceiling and instead take their graphic wrap and
tape it around their booth. It is rough looking but
still tope the ladies.
Thats because the ladies have a very small sign
produced by Roxanne lowlighting the entrance to their
black drape enclosed area. A few TVs are inside, but in
reality their booth could have been put together by 10th
graders in the same amount of time.
This is clearly going to be a battle of who is less bad.
The executives in their reviews made it clear that they
loved Synergys award lounge they felt that it was very
inviting and warm and a great place to relax. However,
they were concerned that it would be more of a place to
kick up you feet than purchase a high end electronics
On the other hand, the executives felt that the
execution of Gold Rushs 360 experience was very poor
and unfinished. However, they provided price points and
a wide array of products that made it clear they were
there to sell which is something that the ladies
completely missed. As a result, Gold Rush wins the task
and Synergy will be sending a lady home tonight.
The fellas will be headed to play with the movie makers
at DreamWorks who are working on the animated feature
Over the Hedge Should be a great opportunity to gain
some energy back before the final four.
And now for this evenings featured catfight:
Allie and Roxanne have already agreed to team up and go
after Tammy, even though they both say that they do not
want to see her go home.
[Wow, another load of crap.]
Everyone is remaining professional in the boardroom and
Roxanne claims that Tammy was a little difficult as a
manager. Tammy begins to become emotional and starts
wailing about how she thought a lounge was a good idea.
Trump thinks that a lounge is a horrible idea and now
Tammy makes an attempt to deflect to Roxanne. Tammy
points out that Roxanne was completely responsible for
the signage and Trump didnt like that either. Now it is
time to throw civility out the window. Roxanne begins to
bark at Tammy. Tammy says that Roxanne is only attacking
her so that she can protect Allie. Allie is keeping her
and rolling her eyes. Bill calls her on it
and Allie denies it, but in reality this is still only a
sub-plot. Allie quotes that Tammy wanted the project to
be about her and Roxanne confirms. Tammy says that she
only took control because she was not given any other
However when it comes down to it Trump can clearly tell
that Tammy was not respected by her peers and in this
case it is probably because she is inferior in skill.
She came up with a very poor design scheme and
regardless of the fact that she was not given excessive
assistance, her ineptitude on this task can not be
overlooked. Tammy, Youre Fired!
Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a Final Four. Allie, Lee,
Roxanne and Sean will compete head to head to head to
head, to find out who will become the next Apprentice.
As for you, now is the time to start studying these
recaps, because Trump will give you a hand in choosing
the winner. Analyze the candidates closely and well be
back with more info next week.
