    Why the heck is Nicole crying to Trump about her showmance? What a nitwit!

    Fires Angela because she is the team leader and didn't give him a compelling reason to stay.
    And how is this week different from all the other weeks where she didn't show any sign of having done much of anything?

    Oh -- she was the leader. Guess that'll teach ya about stepping up to manage.

    It's time for an Apprentice spin-off hosted by Scott Adams of Dilbert fame.

    Man, watching this show is better than taking a double dose of Ambien. Night y'all!

    That was too obvious. Angela attacked the concept. Wrong way to go.

    Wait... Angela never won Gold. By definition that means she HAS lost.

    A team bombs? Recent history would seem to indicate that would be EstrogenCorp, but maybe the (snort) brain trust of James, Tim and Frankie finally outweigh Stephani's seeming good sense.

    Normally I'd say people need to just shut up after the boardroom, but Trump is drooling over the showmance.

    If Angela talked about winning a damn Olympic medal one more time I was going to have to shoot my TV. And I only caught the last 15 minutes! I'm still not certain what winning an Olympic medal has to do with business sense. One time I won a scratch-off lottery ticket. Maybe that qualifies me to run Trump's casinos. Certainly couldn't do any worse than he does.

    Not to sound like a broken record (those round plastic things they used before CDs), but it's clear once again that some people don't get what this show is supposed to be about: leadership.

    Angela attacked their sales concept as flawed and said Nicole should be sent packing. Unfortunately, if Donald is looking for leaders, he's not going down that line of reasoning. If Angela is PM, she needs to lead, and sometimes that means playing the role of final decision maker. If Angela says Nicole's idea took them down the wrong path, she has to realize it was her decision to allow it to take them there. Whether she formally said "yes" to the idea, or failed to say "no", she implicitly agreed. Sorry, Angela, this one's on you.

    By the way, I don't believe the concept was so flawed, as it makes sense to go to your customers. Someone raised the point about legitimacy, and that the kiosk added a sense of authenticity. That can be solved-- people still have park workers take their pictures at the park entrance even though they lack a kiosk. The problem was in execution: get uniforms or make it clear that you ARE with the park, rather than waltz around is pseudo-seductive clothes. Next, their team did not respond well to the attacks of "free water". They may claim it was unethical (and I do agree it wasn't in the best interest of the park to have infighting on the grounds), but it was more a case of aggressive sales tactics.

    Incidentally, I was worried at first when Trump didn't start the show out with representatives from a company. I breathed a sigh of relief when I realized that, despite this omission, Trump wasn't straying from his favorite theme of hawking someone's goods.

    And finally... what data is Trump reviewing to get the idea that his show is #1? That hasn't been the case since Season 1 has it? If then?

    Yeah, does she think the show should actually be taken off course for the sake of her fling (which she supposedly said she's done with now?). I don't think that was such an impressive maneuver by Nicole.
