    In addition to living in tents (a Survivor ripoff), maybe Donald should have the losing team eat bugs and worms in the backyard (a Fear Factor ripoff) instead of the fine food and wine at the mansion. After all, the only smart thing the Donald has done is pay himself $2 million each year as the CEO of Trump Hotel & Casinos, while driving the company to bankruptcy TWICE. He is indeed the right person to judge other people's business acumen.

    I agree. Is there any information regarding why she was "fired" and what she's doing now ?

    And Oh ... the tent is the silliest thing I ever heard. I could see NOT rewarding the losing team by housing them in average, everyday accomodations, like working people ... but tents ? Stupid.

    The Trumplets as boardroom sidekicks is ridiculous ! What's he teaching ? Nepotism ? Ivanka's inclusion is insulting. Has he no women in his organization who qualify ?

    And the long term PM thing makes no sense to me.

    I'm fully convinced that this is why he is acting like such a fool with Rosie. He can see his ship sinking...I also think Mark Burnett is encouraging the feud. It's all about the money.

    There once was a man named Trump who was mostly known for being this rich idiot who married trophy wives and loved to brag. Then he went on TV and became this rich idiot who loved to brag who married a third trophy wife and... then his show flopped. In desperation he tried every trick in the book to save face, including the old stand-by called "stealing ideas from others who are more successful and pretending you're original".

    He hired his own progeny to "work" for him, a move more widely known as keep-the-money-in-the-family on a show that's supposedly about hiring a talented stranger to do a high paying job. Sort of do as I say, not as I do.

    There is only one question left unanswered: "Will the show last long enough so that cheesy real estate mogul's latest offspring could also have a chance to experience being patronized by daddy on national TV?" I have a feeling that's going to be one lucky baby right there.

    I heard him say on some talk show that the fame went to her head and she wasn't doing her job. I swear the man believes his own publicity.

    This is soooo unlikely. She was sickenly loyal to the old windbag. I do believe that her fame led to her firing, but only because The Donald was jealous of her rep for being more competent than he ever was.

    2. Apprentice Goes Survivor (Sort Of)
    Each week's winning team will "live like kings" in a mansion overlooking Beverly Hills, Trump reveals. And the others? "The losers live like hell," sleeping in two tents with no hot showers or closets which the clueless players have to erect themselves in the estate's backyard, before they even unpack their bags. "It's tough, but not quite Survivor," says Apprentice executive producer Mark Burnett, who created both series.
    I just want to thank Mark Burnett and Donald Trump for freeing up another hour of my time each week this winter. I can finally stop watching this pretend business show now that it's become a farce of itself.

    While George was generally on business trips, Carolyn was there every single week. This was probably Trump's fault, but I did question what else she actually did.

    I agree. He gushed about her every chance he got and I think at times, she made better points than Trump about whether someone should be fired or not.

    I do see her being headstrong, though, and I'm sure she and Trump went toe to toe more than once. That could have also led to her downfall. Although, I doubt Trump is one of the best employers out there, despite his successes. I'm sure she's better off while he pimps his daughter in Carloyn's vacated role.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.

    Carolyn was in charge of his golf courses, wasn't she. I'm sure she still had to do her regular work in addition to the time she spent on TA. Hopefully she will now be able to spend some time with her family.
