"Who Wears the Pants" - May
Tammy to return so dearly, just so that he could take
her back to the bedroom and give her a special hug.
However, unfortunately for Sean he is not on the
bachelor and will have to focus on the business rather
than the personal.
Trump quickly lays down the next task and we can prepare
for a true, 2 on 2, battle of the sexes. The mystery
ingredient? Is it Tuna? No, its fashion design.
[Wait, when did this turn into project runway?]
The candidates will have to create looks for 4
different staff positions at the hotel. The staff will
then vote on which team did the best job and we know
what happens to the other team
Gold Rush is already banking on their metrosexuality to
pull them through. Lee is project managing and is
confident that even though they are facing off against
women that they will do well. After all, Sean feels that
Roxanne has no confidence in her style whatsoever.
[Dissing the fashion of the other team will not help you
win this task, although it will entertain the at home
Lee and Sean push quickly to quiz the embassy suites
employees on what they like and as a result they find
that the employees do not want a drastic change. This
information should suit them well.
Synergy, however, is playing the game differently and
feels that if they dont completely overhaul the uniform
that they will be missing the mark. Allie is PMing and
offers ideas ranging from skirts to culottes. She is
confident that the boys have no chance here and possibly
the overconfidence will bite her.
Gold Rush is in the design studio and Sean is on fire.
He is sticking with the original looks and adding some
additional comfort and functionality. His vigor for this
assignment is coming through but Lee is slightly worried
that maybe the Embassy Suites employees want flash but
they dont know it yet.
Synergy is confident in adding their flash tot eh
uniform, but the girls get into a quarrel over whether
front desk should have a skirt or pants. Roxanne says
that she knows they want pants, but in reality, there
was no fight because she let Allie bulldoze over her.
[Silence, at least in this case, is definitely weakness]
Sean is on fire at the fabric store
Allie is bumbling along fussing with her designer over
charmeuse. Roxanne thinks that Allie is ridiculous for
arguing with Mark, their designer when Allie has no
design experience. Then again, how can Allie be arguing
with Mark when she only calls him Michael?
Its on to hair and make-up and Roxanne and Allie are
feeling confident that their looks are not only fashion
forward but also plain sexy. Now we just have to see
what the Embassy Suites employees really want.
The runway show was nothing less than a complete and
utter travesty. Gold Rush provided simple, comfortable
designs that simply fixed the problems with the original
Embassy Suites uniforms. They received outward approval
from the staff members who applauded and smiled.
Synergy seemed to more so resemble what would happen if
the Jetsons met the Flintstones. While this may have
been a very entertaining animated movie, seeing Wilma
Flintstone in Jane Jetsons clothing is enough to make
one gag. Every outfit aside from front desk was simply
wrong. Shoulder pads, poofy garments, Peter Pan cuffs on
mens shirts, French maid outfits
Yes, Synergy had all
of this and then some. If they pull off a win with this
line someone needs to be euthanized.
Fortunately, Dr. Kevorkian will have no work to do
tonight. Gold Rush won in a land slide. 83 to 37 to be
exact, and frankly even that is an insult.
Lee and Sean have won dinner with the mini-Trumps,
Donald Jr. and Ivanka, who oversaw this task The ladies
of Synergy, oh yeah, this ones gonna be a barn burner.
[Just one note from dinner. Lee let the cat out of the
bag that Sean has a crush on Tammy, and now a quote from
Sean. Tammy is bloody gorgeous, now all I have to do is
convince her that I am gorgeous and we can have a lot of
Apprentice babies. Giggity.]
Allie and Roxanne enter the boardroom and Trump is
confused as to how the ladies could have done so poorly
on a task in fashion when they were going against a pair
of men. Allie still stands behind her product and claims
that everything they did was completely 50/50. Roxanne
sits with her mouth shut and Allie rambles on. Ivanka
points out that the main area where they lost was
functionality. The chefs uniform being beige was stupid
because it could not be bleached of food stains, thus
the purpose of the traditional white. Allie did not know
this but Trump keys in on the fact that Roxanne has been
so silent. He asks if she feels things would have gone
better should she have been project manager and Roxanne
dances around something that sounds like a yes. Roxanne
is literally so afraid of attacking Allie that she is
shooting herself in the foot. Finally, Roxanne squeaks
out that she wanted to put the front desk staff in pants
rather than a skirt. Allie claims that Roxanne never
voiced this and Roxanne finally opens the flood gates.
Allie is high maintenance, Allie has a lack of respect
for co-workers, Allie doesnt take advice from her team
members, Allie doesnt know how to respectfully ask for
changes from the designer
Yada, yada yada, I hate you.
Then Allie retorts, Roxanne is weak, Roxanne cant get
along with project managers, Roxanne is incapable of
making decisions, die Commie die!
[This recap in no way intends to imply that Roxanne or
anyone associated with the Apprentice is Communist. Not
that free speech would have a problem with that.]
The bickering keeps heating up and then Trump puts out
the fire. He has never seen two people in the boardroom
who were closer friends. Further, he cant believe the
way that they attacked each other once they lost. Just
because the chips are down does not mean that loyalty
should go out that window. Roxanne, Allie, Youre Both
And the heads are spinning! The Final four gets sliced
in half and either Sean or Lee will be your next
apprentice. Remember, this season you will have some
involvement in who becomes the Final Apprentice, so keep
watching, research these recaps and pick your pony.
Until next time, Trump Out.
