"Life in the Luxury Lane" -
Two dirty little words lead
to Two, Two, TWO Firings in one. The candidates reap
what they sow in this weeks Apprentice.
Jumping right in.
Randal has replaced Ivanka and will serve as The
Donalds eyes and ears as the candidates will have to
create an event for preferred Lexus customers,
highlights the new Lexus LS460 Sedan. The team that
scores the highest customer satisfaction will win the
Kinetic is going with a theory of the sixth sense of
luxury. Angela is put in charge of marketing, and admits
that she has a full mental block. Derek starts
suggesting things such as Tarot readings or magicians
just to get the ball rolling and then Jenn backs heavily
the idea of go-karts.
Outside, Muna and Heidi are learning the ins and outs of
the new car. They will be responsible for demonstrating
the new features so they are making sure to be more than
Arrow is having problems with Suryas thoroughness. He
is writing everything that they discuss on the White
Board and no one understands why they have to slow down
constantly for him to write.
Meanwhile Tim and Nicole are swooning over each other
and James is getting a little worried about their focus.
James shouldnt worry though, their focus is fine, it
just isnt directed toward the task
At Kinetic, Derek is growing increasingly frustrated
with Americas favorite Olympian candidate (fine, only
Olympian candidate). The apparently have a 9pm deadline
for completing the designs on marketing materials
they miss it. Derek, is choosing to let
Angela hang out to dry on this one, so someone make sure
that he gets the ultimate team player award, ok?
Back to the office romance. Tim and Nicole are cuddling
Stefani and Frank are taking reins of event planning and
are mad that they are not being given assistance. At the
same time, they look forward to taking all the credit in
a positive manner.
The event has started, and there are floral
arrangements, and a beautiful showroom. Then the 1st
nightmare strikes for Arrow as the battery in the car
runs low, preventing the display from working. Surya
writes this off as the massager being overused
Kinetic is having their share of problems too. As Jenn
launches into the full blown presentation, she realizes
that the monitor is blown out with glare from outside
and she cant read it. Jenn stumbles all over her words
and the presentation becomes something less than
Note to kids everywhere: This is why you rehearse and
practice your speeches. If you dont, youll look like a
fool on national television.
At least the go karts are fun! Wow, two ladies in hells
driving go-karts! You dont see that anywhere. (Theres
probably a reason)
Back at Arrow, things have picked up as they are now
demonstrating that the new Lexus can park itself. Now,
while this is impressive, lets reserve judgment until
the Lexus parks itself on the streets of NYC. (Or at
least offers us some tea.)
Thats it! The events are a wrap. Who will come out on
Arrow: 94 (out of 100)
Arrow goes 2 for 2! Is Surya really that good? Lets let
Snoop Dogg be the judge as they will be creating their
own song at his side.
Back at camp, Kinetic is pissed and is ready to kill
their Project Manager, Jenn. Derek is fully ready to
rally the troops, and the gamesmanship has begun.
Jenn is convinced that tonight is gonna suck.
Specifically because everything is going to come down to
she and Angela. Neither one is planning on quitting, so
we may have fireworks.
As a safety, Trump is talking to the Lexus
representatives and they have marked Heidi and Muna as 2
people who put out a great performance, thus they should
The firing squad lines up and we will begin.
Jenn is asked why they lost and she admits only that she
is surprised that they lost. After some prodding, she
admits that there were many flaws. Trump wants to know
from Randal what was wrong and Randal believes that
there was no comparison between the two teams when it
came to displaying a sense of luxury. Randal questions
the lack of signage and now Derek is in the game.
Derek, instead of attacking Angela, seems to stick to
his game plan and puts the heat back on Jenn saying that
the conditions he was forced to work in were not
reasonable. Trump asks how 5hrs to create signage was
not reasonable and Derek, explains that he will take
blame if the message was poor, but not for the actual
production of signage.
Trump changes the topic to the go-karts and it comes out
that they were originally Dereks idea.
Derek starts to babble and in the process starts cutting
jokes. He says that he couldnt fit in the go kart
himself but that it is the kind of thing that someone
like him who is white trash would like. (White Trash are
his words, not mine).
Note to future candidates: Dont use derogatory phrases,
even towards yourself.
Faster than a speeding bullet: Derek, Youre Fired!
Trump did not appreciate the use of the phrase, and more
so, wont take the risk of hiring that type of a person.
However, that does not mean anyone else is safe. Trump
continues to probe about the go-karts and once the dust
settles, Angela has scrapes and bruises for not putting
across an appropriate sense of luxury, but Jenn takes
the responsibility for approving and backing the
Wait! Jenn interrupts Mr. Trump saying that before she
is fired she would like to refute Trumps claim that her
team did not respect her. The team joins her sentiment,
Jenn, Youre Fired!
Jenn leaves graciously, says that the experience was a
joy and wishes all the ladies on her team the best.
Note to all reality contestants: this is how you leave a
Amazing Races Kevin and Drew). It may not
be the most entertaining, but it shows that you are a
genuine nice person.
With that done, Kinetic is nothing but a squad of ladies
out for blood. Will they taste victory and move back
into the mansion? Will they even still be a team? Check
in next week to find out.
