Whew. For a minute there I thought Randal was gonna be fired for the dumbest reason ever. Clay deserved to be fired weeks ago. The fact that he's colossal ass means he'll be coming back to be on the team for the final task, though.

I thought BOTH songs sucked hard. Couldn't one of the teams just used "The Rubble Man"?

We know they'll bring back Clay, and we can be pretty sure Toral will re-appear. Clay was such a drama queen.. his cab confessions were hilarious. "Good luck in the final task with a BROKEN ANKLE Rebecca"

I love picturing George in his hard rock haydays.

Hard rock, soda jerking heydays. ;)

Stupid me, the whole show I was all "Sweet, I totally picked Clay to get fired" and it turns out that I had actually picked Rebecca thinking that they were going to pull a fast one on us. Bah! Still, tied for the bronze isn't all bad.

Go Team Alla!

Clay has some serious petulant-baby issues. I'd think he just didn't know better except for the look he gets on his face when he pulls shit. For example, when he lackadaisically opened the door to let Jide in while Rebecca was talking. He had this LOOK on his face, half "no one sees me la la la I'm not being noticed," and half "I dare you to call me on it right now in front of the execs." He got the same look when he was playing fake violin. You know who I think he is? Steve Carell's character from the Office. That's who he's going to end up being, only less endearing.

I've noticed this about Randal as well, and it bugs me. It's like he doesn't exist on tasks where he's not leading, and even though I like him the best (least with the crazy), I was glad when Carolyn called him out and asked exactly WHAT did he do this week. But he's honest about his mistakes, and I really couldn't imagine he got fired for that channel thing. I was glad to hear Trump acknowledge that at a certain point they need to look at past performance as a factor in the firings. Good.

Rebecca really bugged me this week with her love for all things Nigerian. "We're going to win...dude's from NIGERIA! It's in the bag!" "But don't you see...he's from NIGERIA!" I don't know anything about XM or MX or whatever it is because I've never heard of it, but it sounds to me based on their audience feedback that it's rather adult contemporary and white-sounding. Did they not get a chance to listen to the station before they chose artists? I thought Jide's voice was fantastic and that he could sing circles around the other guy, but his style was all wrong.

And what the hell was that white sequined jacket? Oh dear.

No kidding, fantasy league the last couple weeks has sucked.

I'm pretty sure one of the episodes on Thanksgiving is a recap hour, if that makes you feel any better. ;)

What freakgirl said... my TiVo description for the 9pm show on Turkey Day says "Clip Show", and the 10pm is the new episode.

I'm joining the "thank god Clay is gone" bandwagon, Trump was so glad Clay's team won the week before, because it gave a little cushion between the "Clay's gay?!?!?" realization and his inevitable demise. I was also ROFL at Clay's "ha-ha!" face as he opened the door and let Jide' at that awkwardly early moment in Rebecca's "He's NIGERIAN!" build-up intro. I think it was not him trying to be noticed... I think he realized the song was probably wrong and this was his little sabotage attempt so when they lost he could try to blame it on Rebecca's "awkward" presentation.

Felisha? Did great as Project Manager! Now, she has a win under her belt!

As for Clay . . .

Ding-dong, the bitch is dead!

The homo bitch!
Ding-dong, the homo bitch is deeeeaaaad!

Clay makes me want to stop being gay.
