Did you see this article, Max?
Nice--I wonder if she would be saying any of that if one of the finalists were actually a normal, likeable human being. But then, how many of those people get on reality shows?
This will add a new layer to the live finale, won't it?
I'm so glad Ryan's gone. I've wanted him out since he turned into a jerk on Marcela. I think I'll watch the remainder of the show with great relief that he won't be there anymore.
However, I was COMPLETELY blindsided by Marcela's firing. But I can see why it happened. Marcela just wants to cook, not run one of Martha's companies. Besides, she'd lost too many tasks, and that one was the clincher.
I want Bethenny or Dawna to win. Not Jim, although I won't be too mad if he does manage to do that.
'She also says she did the show simply because “it would get attention.” She insists “it was just a job. I got paid a fee. I have no participation in the show.”'
Since I actually like Martha, I found the above rather disappointing. Obviously, it was a job and she got paid a fee...but for fuck's sake give your own show some respect. I thought it was a chickenshit, cheap comment. Ko-ko! Ko-ko! Ko-ko!
Every week I expect Bethenny to turn on Jim and regain her identity, but it never happened. I think he's sticking with her because he can beat her in a faceoff (did he say that at some point or that my original thought?) Dawna will kick his ass if she can survive next week. Thank goodness it's an interview, otherwise the Bethenny-Jim conspiracy would take her out. I hope Jim pulls a monkey act next week for the interviews and goes home. I'm afraid Bethenny won't come off very well though. Then we'll have the blowout Dawna over Jim next week. Martha has a 2 in 3 chance of not getting a complete and utter moron for her apprentice.
Remember last week when Jim, Dawna and Bethenny had the opportunity to have dinner with Charles and that other MSLO bigwig? Instead of impressing them with questions and discussing their own strengths, they had a showdown about whose stragedy was better or worse. How embarrassing. I wish we got to see more.
My money's on Dawna.
The next day, Marcela and Ryan were on Martha, and while I didn't hear the whole thing because I was making dinner, I did hear Marcela say she just wasn't ready to be an executive and thought it was her time to go home. True, but I found it hard to listen to her when she talked like that. She didn't believe in herself at all. I don't know why she bothered to be on the show.
I really think it was her time, though. Again, I'm glad Ryan went, as well, but if Marcela could stop believing in herself that easily, she probably didn't belong there anymore.
It was Marcela's time weeks ago, except for the fact that she was never the REASON tasks were lost. But she was the nicest of the candidates with the least offensive behaviour. A normal person. Perhaps too normal. And no confidence against the stronger personality types.
Ryan was so weird. One task he'd be awesome, the next he'd be a total ass. Then awesome. Then he thought he'd get drunk and become impossible to deal with. Why would you get drunk when you so desperately need a win? He had no clue. I couldn't figure him out. I settled on the fact that he's an ass.
I'll take the ass explanation, because that's exactly what he was. Since week nine. He was pretty solid when he finally showed himself on-screen, but he finally crashed and burned, and I had a front-row seat to the event.
I think the getting drunk was just the clincher for him, though.
