"The Final Battle" -
Lee are waiting for what seems like a lifetime and Sean
decides to eat without either of the girls showing up.
He admits that he doesnt give a crap who comes back,
and as a result does not have enough respect to wait to
eat. Lee laughs at this and both are interrupted by a
phone call. Both gentlemen have been summoned to the
The boys learn the truth from Trump and become nearly
giddy. They are notified that they are to head back to
the suite and select 3 teammates to join them on their
final task, but little do they know that when they
arrive back at the suite that all the former candidates
are awaiting them.
Sean immediately launches into interview mode and is
more than obliged to select Tammy first. He quickly adds
Andrea to his team and after discussion with the 2
ladies, he makes Tarek his third Associate
Lee immediately runs to Lennys side and then the
interview process becomes the Lenny show. Lenny
basically talks Lee out of all of his choices and gets
Lee to settle on Pepi and Roxanne.
Sean is absolutely baffled by Lees choices, but Brent
is mortified by the fact that he was not chosen.
[Lets please take a moment of silence for the last time
we will see Brent on the Apprentice. If you can manage
to contain your cheering and applause the silence will
1. Pontiac Bare Naked Ladies Concert at the Trump Taj
Mahal for the World Wildlife Fund
2. Pontiac Celebrity Hockey game for Americas Bravest
and the Denis Leary Firefighter Foundation
The candidates will be responsible for all aspect of
these events and Trump throws first choice to Lee who
selects the Bare Naked Ladies Concert. Sean then gets to
make his selection and also chooses the concert. With
this conflict Trump is not surprised as he always
prefers to work with bare naked ladies. Hiyo! Without
much hesitation, Lee backs off of the concert and
accepts the hockey match.
The candidates exit the boardroom to begin work, and
Carolyn breaks down into fits of laughter. She cant
remember who the guy on the far right was. Trump stares
down at the desk and seems to read a sheet of paper that
says the gents name is Pepi. Needless to say, Trump
wonders if Lee has made the right choices.
Sean as head of what will be called Synergy takes his
team on a tour of the event locations at the Taj. Sean
seems to be feeling somewhat overwhelmed with the large
amount of tasks that are falling on his shoulders, but
he and his team are ready to persevere.
Lee and what will be called Gold Rush meet with a
representative of the Firefighters Fund. She is
somewhat standoffish and presses Lee and team for some
great fundraising ideas. After throwing a couple her way
such as a firefighter date auction and a luxury yacht
ride, Liz, the director at the Leary Firefighter
foundation makes it clear that their ideas are not up to
snuff. As Roxanne puts it, they thought they were
shooting for the stars, but they were actually shooting
At the Chelsea Piers ice rink, Lee and Team meet with
the representatives from Pontiac. Pepi brings up the
idea of a fund matching program and Lee brings up the
idea of auctioning off 2 cars. The execs agree to
provide 2 vehicles, but Lee and team never re-raise the
idea of fund matching and the Pontiac execs point out in
sidebar that they missed an opportunity.
Back at Synergy, Sean is splitting up the team for the
next 2 meetings. He and Tammy will be heading to in
house catering, while Tarek and Andrea will be meeting
with the Pontiac executive.
Tarek notes that while they achieved the agreement to
auction 2 cars, that the Pontiac exec probably got the
idea that either Andrea or he was the project manager.
Was it wise for Sean to miss this important meeting?
Tarek thinks not.
Via phone, Liz has returned and is all over Lees back.
She is not convinced that he nor his team has done any
significant work on fund raising and as a result she
will be coming down to the rink to be given a walk
through of what is going to happen. Roxanne being the
anecdote queen that she is warns that they are not ready
for Liz and that unless Lee pulls off a miracle that Liz
might pull out of the event and then they are S.O.L.
However this is nothing compared to Synergys problems.
Andrea has all of the sudden begun to cough up blood.
With her out of commission Sean is now missing a vital
member of his team and must reorganize the disarray
caused in her absence.
With these problems on the horizon, who knows who will
pull it off and who will become the Apprentice? There
really is only one way to find out. Check back next week
for the Apprentice Finale!
Eighteen men and women have been
