Apprentice 3: Finally an interesting match up

Published 10 years ago by

Finally got around to watching last week’s premiere of season 3 of The Apprentice (Hey, my DVR got twitchy, thank goodness for the rebroadcast on CNBC!).

I’m really glad that they’ve gotten rid of that STUPID men vs. women premise and instead have gone to what they should have done since the first season: College grads vs. self made non-grads. Being in the latter category, I am, of course rooting for the “street smarts” gang to win. Having said that, I have absolutely no doubt that a non-college grad will not win the title of “The Apprentice”.

I believe that no matter how well the street smart side does Donald will defer to the college grad side for a VP position in one of his companies. He can’t help himself. Of course that may not be entirely a bad call, since if you want a corporate lackey you should select someone trained for the job. icon wink Apprentice 3: Finally an interesting match up

We’ll have to see how it goes, but the first episode showed that those high school folks aren’t fools, and the project leader for the first task will go far in the show.

  1. I still don’t know what the heck Bill Rancic has been doing for Trump, aside from appearing on Season 2 of The Apprentice from time to time and showing up on the occasional tabloids and/or talk shows. I honestly don’t know if Trump needs a corporate lackey or not. It almost seems like you’re better off just appearing on the show and being fired before the finale.

    Your harsh comments about school notwithstanding, it’s difficult to find someone with a degree who doesn’t also have a chip on his/her shoulder (at least on that show), so the high school grads have a clear tactical advantage. Until the end of the season, that is, then they’ll start dropping like flies. It seems like Trump considers a do-nothing with a degree to be more valuable than a go-getter without a degree.


  2. My harsh comments were not directed towards technical/scientific degrees, but towards business degrees. 8)

    As to Bill, who knows? I tend to wonder how much work George Ross and Carolyn Kepcher actually manage to get done within the Trump organization these days…


  3. Hurray! Kendra took the prize. I thought she was the best choice. I don’t agree with George and Donald who criticize her for staying under the radar during the early part of the show, that’s definately the strategy one has to take in order to take the measure of the other candidates and develop a strategy. Everyone has to take a turn at PM so let the early ones take the hits and be fired first. I look forward to the next season when it’s Donald who chooses the candidates.

  4. I guess I should have written something up about the season finale of “The Apprentice”…

    I think they made it extremely obvious in the previous week that Kendra was going to take it. Kind of took a lot of the suspense out of the finale. Kendra seemed to have a split personality: Prior to the finale task she seemed very meek and mild and like she wouldn’t stand up for herself. But at the end she seemed to have a wake up call and was very strong.

    I think the biggest difference between Tana and Kendra was that Kendra had much more class. I don’t thank that came from her college education… I think it came from her upbringing. :D
