The New Apprentice

I watched the latest episode of The Apprentice last night, after TiVo faithfully recorded it for me. Sure, I was around to see it live. But I cannot stand watching all the bullshit they use to extend the show to an hour — the stupid montages of the city, the moronic rewards the winners receive. No thanks. In fact, this is the first season I’ve even cared to check out at all. So why watch it now? The theme: College Grads against High School Grads. Hey, that sounded like fun.

But it really hasn’t been all that good. The High School Grads have proven themselves to be worthy adversaries. And the College Grads aren’t doing so bad either. Donald Trump, on the other hand, is not so great on camera. And the challenges they receive for each episode are inane.

What could they possibly do to make me want to watch this show again? I found the answer in the latest issue of Variety magazine. Apparently, they’ve already selected the cast for next season. The concept: Infants Against Monkeys. OK, Donald, I’m all yours.

    I like to watch it and try to come up with ideas and honestly, sometimes I can’t understand how they miss the most important things, like researching and like….being creative? Where is the creativity? I gave up when they did the dove commerical. First off, what is the product? What is it’s purpose? And how do you use it? Did you see the Dove one? They both sucked. My idea was brilliant….Donald said so.

    Well, I don’t understand why it all has to do with marketing. It’s very unrealistic. You don’t present concepts by showing a finished product. Ever. You present drawings or storyboards to sell your idea to the client. Then, once they give the green light, you make it happen. I have no idea how this show sets someone up for the real world. On the other hand, I can’t wait to see the monkeys.
