Losers sleep in tents!

I'm not a Trump fan, but I do enjoy watching The Apprentice! There are two interesting twists this season, one is that the losing team sleeps in tents, and the other is having the winning team leader participate in the boardroom. Do you think these two twists are enough to increase viewership? I will be watching tonight!

I don't like the tent thing. A lot of times the winning team doesn't win by all that much, yet they're living it up while the losers are sleeping outside. I think in order to have the best shots of doing well for the next challenge they need to be sleeping and eating well. This just doesn't seem like they could. I don't even like watching them live that way. Seems like a ridiculous thing to introduce this season. I do like the show. It's entertaining, but I wonder why they made the changes? Were ratings down?

I don't think the ratings were down, but maybe the producers thought there wasn't enough humiliation. The tents have to be demoralizing! Maybe the show was expecting the losing team to work extra hard to get out of the tents. It is an interesting twist, but I agree with you; I don't like it much either!

I don't really watch alot of The Apprentice myself. But I wouldn't think sleeping in tents would be a bad thing. I use to love to go camping myself. I remember when my son was younger all the kids in the neighborhood would come to my house because we had 2 or 3 tents and would pitch them up in the back yard and they would do a sleep over in the tents over here almost every night during the summer. They loved it.

I grew up camping too and loved it. But these are young people vying for a job with Trump, and the losing team never dreamed they would be sleeping in tents! The winning team lives in luxury inside the mansion. I think it provides an interesting twist; the losing team *really* wants to win!
