Maybe it's all in the editing, but I'm having trouble seeing how Martha can keep herself from reaching across the damn table and SMACKING JIM UPSIDE THE HEAD every time he rolls his eyes. Could anyone BE more obnoxiously childish?

And that voice! Like a dog's bark mixed with a pig's snort, but not as pleasant to the ear. He's heinous.

I couldn't even name half the people on Team Primarius. In the board room there was some guy standing with that team that I swear I've never seen before.
Did you see the steam coming out of Jim's ears when Chuck was saying that he took full responsibility for their performance? I thought his head was going to explode.
Jim reminds me of Marc Anthony.

my favorite part was when one of primarius ladies (sarah?) said that martha loved doing community service. i chuckled to myself... she loves community service and serving time!

lol prs! I actually couldn't help but think Martha was pawning off her community service hours on the contestants. :D

This has nothing to do with the show (as I'm not watching it) but I wanted to share that I took an online survey the other day re: what I thought about Martha launching her own line of wine (SRP: $7.99). I said that I thought it was tacky and would water down her brand.

Now if she were to sell Pruno using her own jailhouse recipe, that's another story.

Darn lack-o-linkage! Pruno:

Jim reminds everyone of someone different...for Remy and me it's Jim Breuer.

http://www.jimbreuer.com/

Jim's so over the top I keep waiting for either a punchline, a joke about smoking too much pot (his eyes are half-closed all the time) or for him to suddenly degenerate into Goat Boy.

Bethenny and Jim need to get married right away (and then immediately get divorced, I'm sure) because Bethenny is Female Jim.

I liked Chuck, which I decided during the Conference Room. Even though I was unimpressed with his behaviour as the PM, I liked the honesty of his responses and the way he spoke to Martha.

And...Martha got mad! Woo! I like emotional Martha. Martha cares about the Dutch.

I think it's hilarious that Matchstick keeps competing like they're on the Trump version of the show. I'm surprised that they're not at all considering what sort of thing Martha (the brand) would be in favour of. Ridiculous. Skimpy Dutch Girl outfits? Yeah, Martha's always been about using sex to sell product. HAR!

I have no problem with Martha launching her own line of wine, but if it's called Martha Stewart Living Riesling, I think she may as well shlep it in a skimpy Dutch Girl outfit.

If she owned a winery and sold wine, she should make it known that the winery belongs to her, but should keep the naming and marketing of the wine away from her Living brand.

Maggie at September 29, 2005 11:15 AM

My fave line from last night was when Martha told that one girl, "If you cry, you're outta here. There's no crying in business." Yeah, baby. More of that side of Ms. Stewart, please.

Oh dear, before the show started I was TOTALLY convinced that one of the gays would take this competition, hands down. Guess I was wrong, eh?

I agree that Jim totally needs his ass handed to him. (Goat Boy--heh.) And Chuck was really a sweet guy--sorry to see him go.

I'm also sorry to report that between this show and Martha's new talk show (Hello? Wooden much?) I'm starting to get Martha overload, which is never a good thing. Somehow I couldn't get why Martha was so upset about the Dutch Girl outfits (at least an honest attempt at creative marketing) when Primarius was ratcheting prices up beyond any reasonable comprehension. Martha's branding strategy may be a lot of things, but she's generally made her stuff affordable. She's been in K-Mart for years, for God's sake. Although maybe I'm just sharing Max's mentality--anybody who'd pay $150 for flowers they could get for a tenth that price at the supermarket is straight-up stupid.

Chris at September 29, 2005 11:47 AM

I so agree that Jim looks just like Judd Winick. It's all I think about when I watch the show, and it's very distracting. He needs to go!

Marie at October 2, 2005 12:34 AM

Here's my two cents.

Jim is psychotic and overly cruel. He needs to go soon.

Dawn is weak like a flower. She needs to go soon, too.

Jeff and Chuck were both . . . like me, so I hoped they'd get far in the game, but alas, I said goodbye to them, although they both very well deserved to go when they did.

I love Shawn, Marcela, Sarah, and Carrie. I think all of them may have what it takes.

Everyone else I need to see a little more of before I make my choice.
