Survivor – ALL STARS

Last week, Saboga was demolished and Chapera and Mogo-Mogo absorbed Rupert/Jenna, and Jerri/Kathy respectively. Again, Richard pulled his thing out, but crossed a little too far over the line with Sue and Kathy. In the end, Boston Rob won immunity for the new Chapera tribe, and Mogo-Mogo got rid of Richard Hatch.

This week we find that Kathy is a powerful player in her tribe. It was her doing that ridded the island of Richard Hatch. Colby openly criticizes Shii Ann for her strategy of flying under the radar while he puts himself on the chopping block to get things done. Later, all the tribe members feel the impact of no longer having a fisherman. BUT, Lex goes fishing and brings back a whole batch. His plan: to make the women think that the other guys aren’t important. It seems to work, as Jerri immediately flocks to his side with a promise of allegiance.

On Chapera, Rupert finds confidence in the possibility of himself as the provider. The only competition is Sue, who collects oysters off of the rocks. Sue laments about Richard’s attempt to rub him against her (last week). She later reveals that feels almost haunted by Richard’s disrespect for her. While the girls sympathize with Sue’s pain, Boston Rob considers that she may be playing them. Later, Rob and Amber approach Rupert and Jenna for an alliance. But, since it’s “his” game, Boston Rob suggests that Rupert and Jenna might end up being sacrificial lambs.

At the reward challenge, Jeff asks what people’s feelings are about Rupert’s action, to which Sue yells and screams and then hands in the towel and a boat arrives to escort her out of the game. The tribes are given the choice to play the reward challenge, or sit together and share the meal that is provided. The tribes opt to play. The challenge: using a lever system, each tribe member must catapult a food item into a basket. The first tribe to complete all six items gets shish kabobs, as well as all the foot items they catapulted. Mogo-Mogo takes an early lead, as Chapera’s Jenna has trouble with the lever system. The lead is maintained, and Mogo-Mogo wins reward.

I’m not even going to go into how I felt about the comments people made after Sue left, I might explode the way she did. If I were ever to see Kathy walking down the street, I would trip her, and then kick her in the face. She’s a completely arrogant and obnoxious woman, and she needs to go back into the hole she crawled out of. Bitch. It’s the only way to characterize her.

We expected that Chapera would be completely demoralized, however, they pull together as a team, and decide to stick it out. When they receive word that there will be no immunity challenge as someone has already left the game, they laugh about Sue’s character. The guys are completely insensitive:while Alicia, Jenna, and Amber regret losing a teammate.

Next week: Girls start to catfight, Lex makes his plans to conquer, and at the reward challenge there’s another big twist.

The Bachelor

The new season of the Bachelor will premiere April 7th.

The Apprentice

Last week, the teams sold “Trump Ice,” Heidi toughed out her emotions about her mother’s illness, Omarosa continued to complain about her “injury,” Ereka collapsed under pressure and when Protégé Corporation lost, and she was fired.

When Nick and Bill return to the suite, Katrina is sick that Ereka is gone before Omarosa. The boys are insulted that Ereka wouldn’t shake their hands as she left. The highlight of the show, Kwame, hot black man, answers the phone in his underwear. Before the task, Versacorp must steal an associate from Protégé.

The task: choose an artist and take their work to an art gallery; sell it for the highest price. Team with the highest price wins. Interestingly, one of the artists they meet adds his own body to his artwork (i.e. toenails and armpit hair).

Protégé chooses a very quirky artist whose paintings are risqué and morbid, however, the average selling price for Meghan’s work is much higher than the other artists. But later, instead of marketing their product, Omarosa decides that her head hurts and she needs to sit down and eat (for two hours). The small tiff sparks into a big thing, and Heidi runs off her potty mouth. Later, at the gallery, Troy and Heidi have trouble getting into the product. Omarosa, however, moves a small painting for almost a thousand dollars.

Versacorp goes with an artist named Andre, whose art is very colorful, but not detailed enough for my taste. However, these pieces are not really out there, and so they appeal to a lot of buyers, and move fast. When the results are revealed, we find out that Protégé made $869.00 with one piece, while Versacorp made $13,600 with eight pieces. Trump tells the group that Protégé didn’t succeed because they didn’t enjoy their product.

As a reward, the project manager of Versacorp (Nick) gets to spend ten minutes alone with Trump. Nick asks what Trump wants, and he discloses that he needs someone with energy. In the end, Trump explains that Nick has been doing well, despite a lot of things. What a confidence booster!

Omarosa blabs on about her own ability as an executive, and Heidi’s lack of class. She makes a direct threat (to Bill) that if Kwame chooses to take her into the boardroom she’ll have to take him down. Stupid Bitch:lots of those this week eh? In the boardroom Kwame admits that their choice was a high risk that didn’t pay off. Omarosa lies to Trump’s face saying she new that they’d made the wrong choice, whereas, in the clinch she told her team that the money would come from the risky decision. Omarosa, also gets criticism for the “headache issue.” When Kwame holds Heidi and Omarosa partially responsible, Omarosa cries on Kwame’s shoulder, and then bursts into Trump’s boardroom without permission, AND THEN asks to be excused to get a tissue.

Omarosa obviously believes that giving herself a pity party will keep herself from being fired.

Boardroom Summary:

Heidi has an edge, Omarosa isn’t a team player, and Kwame took a risk that didn’t pay off and he learned from it. Omarosa makes too many excuses. Trump tells her to go sell paintings or “whatever the hell [she does].” In closing he explains that she has a chip on her shoulder and that she believes herself to be better than everyone else. Omarosa is fired. YAY, FINALLY!

Next Week: everyone celebrates Omarosa’s departure, a street showdown tears Versacorp apart, and a lesson learned: Don’t cross Carolyn (Trump’s right hand gal).

The Apprentice airs on Wednesday evenings at 10:00 pm Alberta Time
