The Bachelor

The Apprentice

Last week we saw Heidi, the mouthy saleswoman, get fired after not stepping up in the rickshaw challenge.

This week Troy and Kwame (The only members of Protégé left) choose to steal Bill, whose business style is directly opposite the other two, from the other team. The teams are sent to Atlantic City where they’ll run a promotion at the Trump Taj Mahal for twelve hours. The team whose registered gamblers spend the most money win the challenge. Project Managers: Kwame for Protégé and Amy for Versacorp. On the way to Atlantic City, the guys spend the whole trip on their cell phones making appointments to help out in their strategy. The girls (and Nick) are sleeping.

On Versacorp, Katrina brings up great ideas for entertaining the patrons, while Amy makes the final decision to give away a three hundred dollar luxury car rental. Katrina and Amy disagree on negotiating tactics: Amy is all business and Katrina attempts to turn on the charm. Later, Amy turns her charm on Nick in the discussion of what beds the three members of Versacorp will be sleeping in. And, on the actual playing field, Versacorp attempt to steal Protégé’s customers and promotional ideas.

Protégé sets up a spin-to-win wheel, which immediately attracts a large amount of people. They also locks down a deal to secure the props (lions and tigers) from the casino magic show — the only condition being that Troy go see the Ferco Brothers’ show. Kwame tags along with him and Bill becomes upset that two people, when one was sufficient, decided to waste almost three hours of time. Bill snags the priority to checking in the high rollers and VIPs, and escorting them back to their own table, to swipe their registration cards. Later, Bill realizes that bringing out a Tiger for everyone to stare at takes people away from gambling.

Donald Trump comes to Taj Mahal to observe the teams, and to announce the winner of the task. Both teams did really well. Versacorp secured 1337 gamblers for a total amount of $105,362.00. Protégé secured only 776 gamblers, but since they were major VIPs, the amount spent was $123,159.00. As a reward, Trump gives the guys three grand to gamble with and allows them to spend the night in the Napoleon Suite, which is the nicest luxury suite ever.

Versacorp (Amy, Katrina, and Nick) go to the boardroom where it eventually comes down to Amy (project manager) and Katrina since Amy wouldn’t dare go up against, as Trump says, her “boyfriend.” As this is Amy’s first time in the boardroom, she’s prepared major notes which have no effect as Trump, criticizes her concept of the car rental give-away but Amy refuses to accept responsibility for this decision. Trump’s advisors tell him that Katrina didn’t do much in this task and that Amy has been doing wonderful in the past, but made large mistakes on this task. Trump tells Katrina that she should have tackled Amy for her chance to shine. In the end, Amy’s past successes prevail and Katrina is fired.

Next week: we don’t know what’s going to happen, since they didn’t show us.

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