    Also while Romanian is Nadia's first language, French is her second, (she gave interviews during the Montreal Olympics in French), English her third. She spoke very broken English when she defected here, what 20 yrs ago and lived in Montreal for a while because she could communicate in that language. Since she grew up in a communist country it is also possible she knows Russian.

    And just to bring up the important aspect here, instead of talking about her looks....what a wonderful charity she is attached to. The Special Olympics is just wonderful.

    She was like the "invisable woman" on the first show IMHO. Didn't get much air time, didn't stand out at all.

    That might be a good thing, with so many other strong personalities on the team why butt heads unless you have to. Still Nadia is known for having a very serious game face and not for having hysterics.

    I don't see her entertaiment value as high so I suspect she will be out pretty soon.

    How many children does she and her husband have? She still looks good.

    Sorry to see her go, but she really wasn't doing much
    Okay I love FORT's casino, but I really am not very good. If anyone wants to donate their FORT $$ I would gladly accept http://www.fansofrealitytv.com/forum....php?do=donate

    Nadia got rail roaded. Do you really think she deserved to be fired because she did a bad job in ordering the catering? She was let go because she wasn't photogenic enough or had the lively personality (read Big Mouth) as some of the woman.

    Yes, she was let go because she was not good TV. Fine with me! Bring on the drama! I love this season. I doubt she cared. I don't think any of them have any huge investment in what happens. They have successful lives/careers and did it for charity. They knew going in that they would be fired at some point.

    She was fired for not fighting because Trump equated that with not being a capable leader. Unfortunately I think it was a product of her upbringing. She would never have been allowed to speak back to the people around her. That carries on into adult hood. It doesn't make her less strong or less capable, but that's how Trump saw it. I wish he would have said I don't think you can be a leader but I'm going to give you the chance, you're the PM next week, and then fired Nely.
