Kelly, 37, a software exec from Carlsbad, California.
Here are my early predictions…
Not having yet seen these folks, and just based upon what I’ve seen online, here’s my list of who’s who:
Rob: Looks like he’s got some varied real-world experience.
Kelly: Unless his personality conflicts, another good bet.
Those who I think will make it beyond the initial cuts:
John: Looks like he might go far, but his age will work against him.
Wes: Unless his personality is abrasive, will be in the half that survives.
Pamela: Experience a bit narrow, but will probably go far.
Sandy: Not degreed, but I think she might go pretty far here.
Elizabeth: She’ll go far, but won’t win.
These guys are toast:
Raj: The guy wears a bowtie. ‘Nuff said.
Bradford: Commutes in a gas-powered golf cart with monster truck tires. Too out-there.
Chris: High school degree only. See ya.
Andy: Too young and inexperienced.
Kevin: I don’t see anything that stands out at this point.
Jennifer C.: Sales skills alone do not make a VP.
Stacie J.: A model who runs a Subway. Might last a while, but not all the way.
Jennifer M.: Lawyer and not much else. Probably very personable, but it won’t take her all the way.
Maria: She just looks…. like she ain’t gonna make it.
Stacy R.: Another lawyer. Won’t make it far.
Ivana: She is so gone. There totally due to the name thing.
