I was originally thinking Marshall had it in the back, but Rebecca has started to prove herself, especially with her sly negotiaton skills.

she's got SKILLZZZ

Now i have to use my SKILLZZZ and get my car out from behind that mountain of snow. THANKS SNOW PLOW!

Soosan at December 9, 2005 09:47 AM

Is Marshall the bastard love child between Randall and Marshawn? ;)

freakgirl at December 9, 2005 10:04 AM

i had to read that twice to figure out what you were going on about. Be nice, the snow has warped my brain. GO SNOW!

Soosan at December 9, 2005 10:41 AM

Randall--the whole thing is set up for Randall to win. Unless he really screws up and Rebecca really shows herself above what anyone thought--Randall will win.

Besides--they always make the one that is winning seem to be making all the big mistakes.

Bubbi at December 9, 2005 10:52 AM

Personally, I think that Randall's all of "problems" is just an attempt at misdirection on Burnett's part.

And Soosan, I think you forgot to put an "AWAY" between go and snow. It's snowing about an inch an hour up here and since they cancelled school the plows can't be bothered to do their job. Of course that's fine for everyone else on our street that has a F150 or some sort of all wheel drive car, but those of us with "citified" sedans (and not American made at that, the horror!) are up sh!t creek. </rant>

brigita at December 9, 2005 10:55 AM

awww muffin, there there. I was "go snow" because that meant the office was closed for the morning, but I change it to "go away" now, as the mountain of snow next to my car door was dangerously close to toppling onto my seat. Could I have shoveled? Sure... but why ruin the "fun".

I am predicting both will do about the same on their tasks, even stevens.. so it will really come down to whatever Trump is thinking, and well, this season we have seen how wishy washy he has been.

Soosan at December 9, 2005 11:06 AM

(Thanks for the empathy, Soosan. Let's hope there's a sunny spring break in all of our futures!)

brigita at December 9, 2005 11:22 AM

My first impression is that they are skewing us toward Rebecca in this final task. She is having some minor problems, but is discussing them all with the clients, so I think will be able to pull off a good event. Randall's got RAIN tomorrow, people. And not a word of a rain contingency has been uttered.

We'll see. My favourite two from the whole game are up there, so I'm happy with either I guess, although a little partial to Randall.

Jeremy at December 9, 2005 11:24 AM

Didn't we get rain for Bill Rancic's golf tournament as well? And he won anyway; it turned out to be nothing if I remember correctly.

I guess we'll see! They did make a point of mentioning the rain contingency thing, though, you're right, Jeremy.

freakgirl at December 9, 2005 11:30 AM

Poor Mark..."I'll get it done." I can't believe they watched him out the window while he struggled.

Why didn't they hire some temp kids to do the simple gruntwork of stuffing the gift bags and setting up the tents and chairs? Randall can mobilize an army to sell Shania Twain perfume, but he can't hire 6 people to help out with piecework?

I thought it was poor that Randall was being told about how important it is for the stadium to be set up. He should have been telling his team that, instead of getting a lecture from the Outback guy. I hope that doesn't bode badly for him.

Rebecca seems to be doing very well. Editing, I know.

Okay, here's what I don't understand. They are doing charity events. I don't understand why we are pussyfooting around asking these rich folks for money. They know they are coming to a charity event. I'd expect they'd have to buy a ticket to the event (where the $$ goes to the charity) and then be expected to donate there as well. It seems like Yahoo! is more interested in catering to rich folks than the real purpose of their event, which is raising money for children with AIDS.

I also don't understand why No-Show-Joe-Piscopo was written off so fast...why can't they work out a contract with his union? I got the feeling that they didn't think they could do that. I'd like to know what the dificulty is with the union that prevents Joe from doing a charity emcee job.

Maggie at December 9, 2005 12:21 PM

Yeah, I swear I heard Joe say, "So you need to write a letter to the union..." and then suddenly it was all, "Joe's not coming." What?

And why was Randal shopping at Party City and Rebecca was custom-ordering fabric?

I also totally do not understand why the Yahoo people are being weird about the charity. A comedy show is the best place to raise money - the performers basically shame you into opening your wallet and you laugh the whole time you're doing it. Silent auction is more elegant, I guess, which I think is what Randall's doing.

Some people speculated on another board that Yahoo might have just been railroaded into The Apprentice appearance, so had to take a regular VIP party and turn it into a charity function. I dunno, but it would make sense as to why they're being so odd.

freakgirl at December 9, 2005 12:47 PM

I wonder what purple cake tastes like.

As homer would say "purple is a fruit"

Soosan at December 9, 2005 12:53 PM

First of all, if your event hinges on the attendance of Joe Piscopo, it is already a failure. Secondly, the whole union thing REEKS of producer manipulation. When Rebecca first explained the task, she said she's "in charge of a comedy charity event, MC'd by Joe Piscopo." There were no scenes of them sitting around trying to figure out who they could get. It sounded like it was a done deal. This last minute union problem just seems to me like the producers manufacturing some problems. (Which is needed, since the candidates didn't get the usual difficult teams, which is lame.)

Honestly, what's wrong with having a cake with purple frosting? We've had cakes with every conceivable color, but purple is unfathomable? Give me a break.

Before this episode, Randall was my pick all the way, but the lack of a rain contingency may ruin his chances.

Joey Jo-Jo at December 9, 2005 01:07 PM

JJJ, I'm with you on the producer manipulation thing. That whole union thing stunk the second I heard it. "Joey Benefits" does these things all the time, be wouldn't think to mention a union contract when they had dinner the night before? Highly unlikely.

Now if I can just figure out how Trump made it rain ...

GeekBoy at December 9, 2005 01:18 PM

Yeah, and at dinner he was all, "So, tell me about this event," and they explained the charity, as though Joe had no idea what he was doing there. I thought that was weird, too.

Maggie at December 9, 2005 01:20 PM

I still have that darn "delicious wishes" song in my head, ever since the DQ challenge.

so catchy.

Soosan at December 9, 2005 01:22 PM

LADIIIIIIES......if you see us in the club....DANCIN'.....join in.....HE'S THE RUBBLE MAN!!!!

(That goes through my head constantly 24/7.)

Joey Jo-Jo at December 9, 2005 01:45 PM

you mean.. FFffrrrrEAKIN!

both those little ditties alternate in the deadly cocktail that is my mind.

Soosan at December 9, 2005 01:46 PM

Mine, too.

freakgirl at December 9, 2005 01:48 PM

Rebecca sure enjoys her rouge.

Jane at December 9, 2005 03:53 PM

HAR! The geekboy pointed that out last night. At one point she actually looked like a clown.

Jane, I just added a screencap so we can all enjoy her apple cheeks again.

freakgirl at December 9, 2005 04:04 PM

Fucking TORAL? She just LOOKS like a snot. I would've thought one'a them would have brought back Alla. I'm not surprised Rebecca brought back her BFF, though. And in Whoreal's defense, she has been working hard for Rebecca.

I almost don't care about this anymore. Let them both win, let Rebecca finally cry instead of that weird half crying she always does, and then let's see something yooge next year in L.A.

sar at December 9, 2005 07:21 PM

She looks like Cartman when he was getting an anal probe. "I like to singa!"

Maggie at December 9, 2005 10:28 PM

Maggie!! ::exploding laughter & a snort:: Okay,I'm still snorting and laughing. This has to stop, girl!

"I like to singa". Sheesh, gets me everytime.

luscious loulou at December 9, 2005 10:45 PM

I think both candidates really picked some strong teams. I'm miffed that Josh and Chris are showing their faces again, though, after I hated them so much for dumping on Markus. But James, Mark, Toral, and ESPECIALLY Marshawn are a breath of fresh air for me. Not to mention a sight for sore eyes.

I don't care whether Randal or Rebecca wins. I love them both and they both deserve it in their own right. So whomever wins is A-okay with me.

Jamison at December 9, 2005 11:56 PM

I am not responsible for computers damaged by beverages spraying out onto them through the nose. ;)

Maggie at December 10, 2005 11:51 AM

hahahaha, Maggie.

sar at December 10, 2005 06:31 PM

Yahoo has never done a charity event and thus are concerned about asking for donations--this is Rebeccas big mistake--she needs to over rule them because it is OK to ask for money--that is the whole point.

Randall did talk about being prepared for the things that can and will go wrong--trust me--he has a plan even with rain.

Rebecca is relying way to much on her team and that is not good when she needs to shine in order to win.

My pick is Randall.
