I liked the first couple seasons, but was it last season, when they did the loosing team sleeps outside in the tents - I thought oh good grief, this is the Apprentice, not Survivor! They are testing their skills and business knowledge and so forth. Sleeping in tents is not appropriate for this show so I didn't watch it that season. But didn't hear of any new ones until last week I was flipping channels nad there was athe new season - all celebrities and Marisa or whateer her name is - that one that was a, well forget what she was, suffice to say she wasn't very nice, but here she is with all the celebrities - I don't think she should have been included in this one. But on to the question... again, what's the point? all these celebrities have tons of friends with money. The team that makes the most money wins, but since they all have tons of friends that have tons of money, it just takes a phone call. it doesn't seem much like they are working to hard to make something happen. The other players all had to really work and create and figure - all things working people have to do. But to make some calls to collect money from friends, just doesnt' seem to me to be a good game show. Nice it all goes to charity, but still, the point of "Apprentice" is to give a hard working person a Chance of a life time. Which of these stars is going to quit their careers and work for Trump? Other than Marisa, of course! Just not into it this season....are you? Am I missing something?

AH my friend , that one is on the list of shows that I don't really have much patience to watch LOL THere is a trend nowadays towards this kind of shows but I have to confess they won't get me counting for the ratings. I just don't really appreciate them.

I understand that. I think the challenges are fine, it's when we add people that we complicate things LOL

I was watching the latest season, but now that Lost is coming back on, I'm probably not going to watch it. I think Omarosa's there because Trump likes her and wants her to "mix it up". But, she seems to have some allies on her team. I think last season, I watched the first few episodes, too, and then quit. It was on Sunday, I think, and there were too many shows to chose from. I thought I could catch up online, but they pulled the online episodes a couple of weeks after the show ended.

Omarosa! That's her name! I think her being the only non-celebrity kind of insults the celebrities. Not that I have a thing for celebs, I don't but she just doesn't fit.

i've seen the apprentice L.A if i'm not mistaken, where the winner is stephanie...i like the apprentice n the concept but i dont really like trump because sometimes he does not how to respect other, its like he is the man, the best man in this world, but the show is good though, it shows that by the little concept u can make it big

I think LA was the one where the loosing team had to "live" out in the tents in the back yard, shower in the back yard even. That just really took for the profession of the show. I like seeing the challenges they do and how each team works them. Board room is annoying. I guess if nothing else is on and I have nothing to talk about on MyLot I'll watch it tonight!

I agree with you I cant hardly get into the apprentice because to me it is so boring all they do is little odd jobs to try and impress donald trump...and for what purpose? I have tried to watch a few shows this year because the celebs that are in it....I really do like trace adkins and think that he is a very smart man and so far I think that he has done a really good job this season...but again I dont watch every show because it is so boring and I just plain and simple do not like donald trump or his people!

I just saw last weeks, by accident, and yeah, boring fits it! I thought that wrestling guy/judge (opposite his daughter) was a joke! It just isn't the same without George and Carolyn. Now that I remember that, that is the other reason I stopped watching. His daughter and son, just don't have it. They just don't give the shopw what George and carolyn did

The Apprentice has Jumped The Shark! I watched the first few seasons and really loved it. However, the celebrities (?)are mostly has beens that no one cares about. How in the world did Omerosa (SP) become a celebrity anyway. I hope by now she has been booted off of there. Anyway, you are not missing a thing, Donald Trump needs to go back to the basics. He can feel free to email me anytime if he needs any help with re-vamping his show :)

Yeah, it was good up until the one, I think out here in LA where the loosing team had to live outside in the tent...that was really stupid and so off topic...should have just got Survivor cast-offs for that show! Would have been better! I hadn't watched for the next season, just happened to be flipping channels and saw this one. I watched it last night, it was okay. The celebrities just don't demostrate the drive and ambition and working talent that the "non" celebrities have shown and that is an important part of the whole theme of the show.

My favorite season was the street smarts vs. the book smarts. Kendra Todd won that one. She is a Re/Max Realtor, same as me :)Once shows depend on "celebrities" to pull their shows out of the ratings dump, it's already too late. I don't dislike "The Donald", in fact, I would love to have a sit down with him. But, he should have left people wanting more instead of people turning the channel.

That was a good one! And didn't the "street smarts" win? OR at least won the most! That was cool!
