It's 9PM, do you know who will be the Apprentice?
After 5 years, I still like the theme song...
Randal seems defeated, as does Rebecca - how could this not be scripted? Randal's oversight is sloppy. It was brought to his attention early on - what to do if it rains. He said it won't. He lost that bet.
Randal saying "we" didn't have a plan B -- no, he didn't have the plan.
Rebecca seems slightly lifted by their Improv comedian. This cannot put Joe Piscopo in a good light - how could it? It's a charity event and he bags it! Shame on Joe!
What should Randal have done? Plan for one of those large tents that could be placed on the field area to accomodate the celebs and general admission. The program would then be announced as rain or shine. Weather is un-predictable and this is something he should have taken into consideration.
As for Rebecca, she could not have predicted that her headliner would bag out (shame on you Joe Piscopo) - so it is how she reacts to "change" that will determine if she can be the Apprentice. I wonder if she could have tapped into a talent agency for a top-name or worked a deal with Joe. I think she did well - responded well.
Aye Aye Aye Toral?
The suspense continues. Rebecca did seem to miss the point a lil - it is way to Yahoo. Even the Yahoo! folks must understand the importance of the charity event. The Charity Foundation should have had much better presentation.
And Randal comes across professional in greeting and informing Da Trump.
Oh those wacky editors!
Randal's speech was strong, he is a very good presentor. Wouldnt it have been classy if Trump, while at the microphone, handed over a real check donation! He missed a great opportunity.
I feel uncomfortable about Yahoo and this event. I think they may have hurt Rebecca in their stance of requiring the passive donations. Why would they do this? Why couldn't Yahoo step up to and be aggresive for a good cause. Shame!
I am surprised how bad this looks for both Joe and Yahoo - and yet on Randal's side, people stepped up! Could Rebecca have implored that Yahoo take a step back in favor of the charity? Did she lose control to Yahoo on this task?
Side note - it was good to see teams that worked hard for their leaders, unlike prior shows. This is a positive change to the Apprentice format.
I think the cards are stacked against Rebecca. Was this planned? I think it was wrong for Trump to take over and move people downstairs early. Rebecca clearly said that the cocktails ran till 7pm. Trump messed up the schedule and blames Rebecca for being disorganized. Wow, lots of shames being handed out and they are all heaped on Rebecca.
Hire both of them... I know he won't but both as a team are so very strong. Individually they are not as strong. Randal came into this finale weaker, but came out looking strong. Rebecca got handed some raw cards, include by Trump himself.
Yahoo hurt Rebecca most of all.
Friends at breakfast - and now the swords come out. No choice, it is down to two. But either way, I respect both and know they both we'll do very well in their future!
Yea Donald - I am glad you took that shot directly at Yahoo! He is right, Yahoo was selfish (SELFISH!). Yes Rebecca should have showed some backbone. But it was Yahoo!'s party.
Randal did mess up on the Plan "B".
What a great boardroom!
Stuck with two stars... does he hire the both????
Trump - oh c'mon about the greeting. He just showed up. Trump has it out for Rebecca. Yahoo and Trump crushed them.
Randal made errors, but Rebecca got bad cards. If you placed this on a scorecard, you could break even between them. Randal should have had a plan "B" - and Rebecca was forced down by Yahoo.
They both did things right - is this a set-up for both?
Yahoo better write a check for $12K+!
Trump is so on Toral... why does he have to embarase her on National TV.
No diplomacy Alla Wartenberg ... low class. Even Da Donald saw that. Why don't these people realize they are "on" everytime the camera is on them.
Yahoo splits $100K between both charities- guilt money!!! Does theYahoo chief go back to his subordinates and rip them. I would! The Yahoo reps were very very wrong and it cost Yahoo $100K to make amends plus some national TV embarrasement on LIVE TV.
Ok here is comes - the answer. It really is a toss up. There have been strong points for both. Leaders have to make hard decisions, and this one is not easy. If I was asked, I would pick Rebecca. Randal has made a few errors (the wrong radio frequency number and the lack of a plan "B"). It will be close.
If Rebecca wins, she has to dedicate this to the Islanders...
Randal wins... It was that close.... well, ok I don't blame Rndall for not being inclusive. Trump showed a moment of weakness and was looking for an excuse to hire both. Emotionally I would have loved to see Randall to say yes - but he made the hard decision FOR Donald. It was the hardest and biggest decision he could make. Randal is a leader - and ... yes I am impressed with his answer at the end. It is the hard decisions that make the leader.
This was a close one and Rebecca should hold her head high and know she will be VERY successful. I think Rebecca' strength under pressure would have been better for Trump. I'd like to know what made Trump decide on Randal over Rebecca. However, he could NOT make a mistake by selected either.
I wasnt a big fan of this years candidates and show, but the ending was very good and very tight. Congratulations Rebecca and Randal !!!
Until next year, in Sourthern California - Happy Holidays to one and all!!
