The four who couldn't

This week's Apprentice was the best yet. Each team has to build and run a bridal store. It was clear from the get-go that Sandy would be a Mosaic asset, since this is what Sandy does outside of the Apprentice. Armed with Sandy's bridal secrets, Mosaic went to work. They made contacts with various vendors in order to get get discount wedding dresses off their hands. Mosaic send out emails in mass numbers (read: SPAM) to brides asking them to attend the sale.

Apex, on the other hand, seem to more dejected than they were before. All four of them seemed like a fish out of water with this task. In this task, they complained about it. Chris (the candidate who complained to Trump about Apex last week) seemed to give up easly. Their idea was to have show were vendors could sell their products. In order for this to occur, they had to find vendors. They approched this idea thinking the vendors would come to them. This did not work, so they went to the vendors themselves, snapping up a bridal consultant on the way who helped them out.

It was of no use. They lost 12 to 1 to Mosaic. In return, Trump gave them 50,000 USD to be buy jewelry. I thought that was a nice touch.

The boardroom was another bloodbath for Apex. Chris's outburst of last week didn't put him on a good footing with his team or Trump. Needless to say, he was fired for being a bad player all around.

Sometimes, I feel, being the conquering hero can hurt you.
