    Hmmm....I have an interesting idea of maybe why George and Carolyn are there...

    Perhaps the winning apprentice will be running one of "their" responsibilities, such as the golf course. ? That's why they're there, to help Trump decide who would be the best suited to be the president of whatever particular business Trump has them responsible for.

    Eh..just an idea. But it wouldn't be that far fetched.

    Ok. WHY was Diamond Jim there again?! I think Trump OWES us an explaination about where our beloved George was this episode!!

    Way earlier in this thread, I noted how when Robin (the secretary) would say, "Ok Mr Trump" sounded like "Ok Mr CHUMP" when he said to send the apprentices in.
    NOW...since the last episode, she only says, "OK". WTH?! Makes me think they're reading online boards...............

    I was thinking the same thing. That would be so embarrassing. I do think she could add a little more to her role on the show though. Maybe a little "Oh you are so fired" as the guys walk out, or a "Come hither puppets, Mr. Trump wants to see you." Oh I am a naughty, naughty girl. Hah!
    You've got me picturing them all as puppets. Did you see the episode Angel where he was turned into a puppet?? Picture Donald as a puppet behind the boardroom table.. with puppet Carolyn and George on either side. Hmm Trump already looks like he has detachable eyebrows (The angel puppet had them) Pointing one velvet fingers.. Your fired Kermit, Miss.Piggy and Fozi Bear.. No.. NO not FOZI.. Love Fozi.. .. Did someone say bringing home the BACON!!

    Copy this from another thread - has some Geirge/Carolyn information

    What it's really like to work for Trump
    Saturday, March 6th, 2004

    So what's it really like to work for Donald Trump?

    Never mind the hit show "The Apprentice" and the infamous boardroom where losing contestants get summarily fired after a grilling.

    That dimly lit luxurious room with its great polished table is a set piece and in fact does not exist at Trump's 26th-floor headquarters at 56th and Fifth.
    Up there, in a warren of unpretentious, messy offices - including Trump's own - is where the real action is, where the mogul and a small coterie of trusted lieutenants and assistants run an empire of real estate, hotels, casinos and golf courses with more than $10.2 billion in annual revenues.

    "It is a dictatorship, not a democracy," said George Ross, 76, one of Trump's two advisers on the show, and in actuality his general counsel and executive vice president.

    For the uninitiated, "The Apprentice," a reality series, features two teams of eight aspiring entrepreneurs who are given tasks by Trump. Each week one of them is fired and at the show's conclusion next month, the sole survivor will be rewarded with a $250,000-a-year job in the Trump Organization.

    Life on the 26th floor does bear some resemblance to the spirit of "The Apprentice."

    The action is fast, but there is no sign of competition because everyone is on the same team.

    "Call Paul Walker," Trump's voice abruptly booms out into the hall where three assistants work. There is no intercom.

    Then, "Call John."

    Jay Leno calls in, wants to know whether Trump saw an episode of "The Tonight Show," but he talks to Norma Foerderer, a Trump vice president and his chief assistant for 23 years.

    "He didn't ask for Donald," said Foerderer. "He knows how busy he is."

    Trump is more present here than the Trump of the show. He's faster, impatient and more dominant. Suddenly he appears at the doorway of Ross' office.

    "How's it going?" he asks Ross about a particular deal.

    "Donald, I think you left too much on the table," ventured Ross, suggesting that Trump had been too generous.

    "I always leave too much on the table," said Trump laughing as he whirled away back to his office down the hall.

    "It's his money, and I can suggest, I can argue, but it's his final say," said Ross during a series of interviews with several of Trump's key employees last week.

    And saying, "You're fired," is mild compared to what really happens when an employee is dishonest or disloyal, Ross said.

    "Donald goes absolutely ballistic, screaming, yelling, cursing and you could not print the words he says, you wouldn't want to be there," he said.
    Ross and Carolyn Kepcher, Trump's other adviser on "The Apprentice," described their boss as demanding but loyal.

    "I had a Caesarean section with my first child, Connor, and he was the first person who telephoned to see how I was," said Kepcher, 35, the chief operating officer for Trump National Golf Clubs.

    She said she works 60- to 70-hour weeks, seldom getting home before 8 p.m. "I try to get home before the children get to sleep," she said.
    Golf, said Kepcher, is Trump's passion. "He's always looking for ways to improve things, including his golf game."

    Ross and Kepcher said Trump often fusses over details, right down to the color and type of doorknobs.

    On other matters, infinitely more important than doorknobs, Trump delegates freely.

    "He doesn't read contracts, no matter how big," said Ross. "I negotiate them, I write them, I read them and he signs them."

    Trump is also a man of idiosyncrasies not readily apparent on the show.

    "You will never see him in his shirtsleeves, even at his desk, said Ross. "He always wears a jacket."

    Yes it's true he doesn't drink or smoke, but it's not true that Trump is overwhelmingly phobic about germs and refuses to shake hands.

    "He shakes my hand, he shakes his friends' hands, he just doesn't like to shake strangers' hands, and in restaurants or wherever he goes, he's always mobbed," said Kepcher.

    Trump also prizes punctuality, and Kepcher says she always arrives early for meetings.

    Time, on the 26th floor, seems to be Trump's enemy. On this day, he is way behind schedule. There is a line of four people with appointments in the reception area. One of them has waited for three hours.

    Trump's desk is covered with piles of papers. There's a computer on a table 15 feet away, but Trump doesn't use it.

    Paper is the medium here, memos and notes. When he approves, Trump customarily jots "OK - DT."

    Under consideration at the moment is furniture for one of his country clubs.
    "I want it mahogany, I like mahogany, the rich look," Trump says.
    Foerderer said for all Trump's toughness and impatience, he likes to promote people from within his organization.

    "He likes to see what you can do and let you run with it," she said. "That is sort of like the show."

    For example, she said, two former security guards hired more than 15 years ago are now in charge of various operations in New York and Florida.

    Ten years ago, Kepcher was running a bankrupt golf course for a management company hired to sell it.

    "Donald was interested in the property, he saw how I was operating it, and he was impressed that we were making money out of the bankruptcy," she said. "He bought the property and said, 'Come work for me.'"
    Ross has known Trump since the '70s. "I represented him in his first big deal, the purchase of the Commodore Hotel, which is now the Hyatt on 42nd St.," said Ross.

    Eight years ago, he was ready to retire but made a deal with Trump.

    "I told Donald I'd work four days a week, I'll take as many vacation days as I want, when I want, and I told him if you're unhappy with me at any time, tell me to leave and I'll leave and we're friends, and if I'm unhappy I'll leave and we'll still be friends.

    "Of course, I'm in a unique position with him because I don't care if I get fired. I don't need to work."

    You got to admit, Carolyn is pretty hot, looks exactly like Princess Diana, and has a sharp wit. These qualities are very rare, heck if she was the assistant-vice-president of the golf course, the producers and Donald might have still chosen her.

    You raise an interesting point Miss Griss.

    Perhaps The Donald selected Carolyn and George because the nature of their work made them keenly aware of which apprentice would best fit his needs.
    Also: George teaches college classes in his "free"time; Carolyn's role as a country club professional means she has lots of skill dealing with people from all walks of life. They might have been the most experienced and most qualified when it came to appearing on a TV show. They entertain without drawing attention away from The Donald and his Apprentices.

    I'm surprised she's only 35, I thought she was in her early 40s. Guess those insane hours have taken a toll.

    Caroline seemed to step out a little with bringing down Heidi

    I also thought she was mid 40s-wow 35.

    Same here--would have put her at about 45. I think it's her bleached hair and "older woman's" bob hairstyle. Bleaching hair make it look old and damaged. Maybe she's prematurely gray and has to bleach it. Her way is mature/confident, but that's not inconsistent with 35. I really think it's the hair.
