Somehow I think there's gonna be a twist. With the men looking like they're going down -3 in personnel, they're gonna randomly redraw the teams to mix 'em up.
I can almost assure you that the first eventual woman to get fired will not be Omarosa (despite her obvious lack of team sportsmanship)... simply because the producers and Donald won't want to deal with the fuss from the NAACP, Jesse Jackson, etc. Remember that those who get fired eventually end up giving interviews on morning shows.
I agree both with the twist (if not in the next episode then shortly) and NAACP - for racism is a grave issue and Omorosa if I recall correctly is the only black woman there!

WITH SAM AS PROJECT MANAGER, WILL THE MEN FINALLY DEFEAT THE WOMEN ON EPISODE THREE OF NBC'S 'THE APPRENTICE'?
"THE APPRENTICE" MOVES TO ITS REGULAR TIMESLOT (WEDNESDAYS 8:00-9:00PM ET) BEGINNING JANUARY 21
THIS WEEK'S TASK TESTS THE CANDIDATE'S NEGOTIATION SKILLS AS THEY RACE AROUND MANHATTAN HAGGLING FOR THE BEST DEAL
NEW YORK -- January 20, 2004 -- Tomorrow, "The Apprentice" moves into its regular timeslot (Wednesdays from 8:00-9:00pm) and Sam Solovey takes over as project manager for the first time after two weeks of narrowly escaping the wrath of Donald Trump in the boardroom. Will the men finally beat the women? Will underdog Sam save the day? As Troy says during the episode, "Sammy's like Picasso. That guy is so far in left field but he paints this colorful disturbing picture....You just got to be able to interpret that picture."
The task at hand in Episode Three is "Negotiation 101." Each team is given a list of items and they have one day to buy each of these items at the cheapest possible price. The items include: a one ounce gold bar, a golf club, five pounds of fresh squid, a camera, cigars, and a leg wax. The team that negotiates the best prices gets a lavish dinner at a famous New York City speakeasy. The losing team, of course, meets Trump in the climactic boardroom showdown.
The second original episode of "The Apprentice" (10.1 rating, 24 share among adults 18-49, 20.4 million viewers overall) jumped 11 percent above its Jan. 8 premiere telecast in 18-49 and grew by 1.9 million viewers overall, pending Nielsen updates of these preliminary results. It's the highest rating for any reality program since the May 21, 2003 "American Idol" finale. "The Apprentice" won its hour in virtually all key demographics and beat CBS' first-run "CSI" head-to-head in 9-9:30 p.m. ET averages for all 18-34 and 18-49 breakouts. Episode 2's 10.1 rating in 18-49 beats every "Survivor" rating, including finales, since May 19, 2002.
MEN: "VERSACORP": Bowie Hogg, Kwame Jackson, Troy McClain, Bill Rancic, Sam Solovey, Nick Warnock
WOMEN: "PROTEGE": Heidi Bressler, Katrina Campins, Jessie Conners, Kristi Frank, Amy Henry, Tammy Lee, Omarosa Manigault Stallworth, Ereka Vetrini
"The Apprentice" is produced by Mark Burnett Productions in association with Trump Productions LLC. Mark Burnett and Donald Trump are executive producers. Burnett is represented by Conrad Riggs who will also serve as a producer on the project.

I foresee the women in the boardroom for the first time and THAT should be very interesting. Let's hope for Ereka and Omarosa and a Miller Lite commercial on Donald's boardroom table!
