Wow. WHAT an episode tonight.
I guess we’ll have to start with the MOST TALKED ABOUT confrontation (albeit one-sided) in apprentice history. MEATLOAF vs GARY (click link below for the video):
The Celebrity Apprentice – Meat Loaf Melts Down – Video – NBC.com (the scene actually went on a bit longer, but you get the gist )
OK, that was CRAZY! I mean, Meatloaf’s had a problem with Gary pretty much from the beginning (as do most of his teammates), but this episode, Meatloaf just got pushed to the edge and lost it. When Meatloaf accused Gary of stealing some of the art products that were his…MAN. Meatloaf was SO WOUND UP, I seriously thought he was going to have a heart attack. I believe Meat loaf has a history of having a bad temper/anger issues…but WOW. That was SOME scene. And there was Gary…just standing there and staring at Meatloaf. I mean, obviously fighting/yelling back would NOT have solved anything in this case. Glad John Rich separated the guys to let Meatloaf cool off. Then after ALL that…looks like Gary DIDN’T steal the art supplies. I mean, whether or not he stole them wasn’t really the point. This was waiting to happen for a while now. Meatloaf just found an excuse to let it all out.
I gotta say tho…Gary Busey is SOME CHARACTER. The THINGS HE SAYS are just…ridiculous. I know he supposedly is actually a really SMART guy…and based on some of his quotes, I can see it:
- “A confrontation of DEATH…”
- FORGIVE – Finding Ourselves Really Giving Individuals Valuable Energy”
- “Meatloaf excelled to the level of dancing on a rainbow with no fear…and no doubt.”
Seriously, you CAN’T WRITE THIS STUFF. It’s hilarious. Gotta love Gary. But one request? Gary, can you at LEAST comb your hair?
Poor Jose. I sure hope his dad is okay…and I don’t think ANYONE can blame him for leaving the “game” early. After all, family comes first. For sure. The show won’t be quite the same without him tho. I do wonder if he WAS there, how much would he have been able to contribute (given his celebrity status and this being a fundraising task)?
The ladies…YAY! Finally a win! $1 MILLION?! How AWESOME was that?! Marlee as the PM was a great choice. Glad she spoke up and overruled LaToya when they were deciding on PM. Without Dionne, I do think the team is a stronger force, and this win definitely brought them together a bit more. It’s funny tho. Even tho Star tried to support and back up Nene after that heated Dionne exit, Nene is still CONSTANTLY harping/grumbling about Star and her contributions.
I still can’t believe that the ladies’ artwork didn’t get delivered until 5 MINUTES BEFORE the opening. CRAZY! And for them to have to set everything up in that short amount of time. Guess that didn’t hurt them tho. Altho I thought the men had better paintings/actual artwork, I thought the ladies had much better hats.
Wow, even WITH that $470,000 donation via John Rich’s “people,” the guys still lost. MAN. That sucks for them. Altho seriously, during the whole gallery time, they kept announcing $5,000 donations. That’s not THAT much per piece. Whereas it seemed the ladies had many more BIGGER donations per piece. Obviously they did…they basically doubled the amount the men raised. AWESOME! AND they won the “best hat” challenge too! GREAT JOB! Hats off to Marlee (pun intended )!
Don’t think Richard had a CHANCE with this one. John Rich basically laid it all out on the table at the beginning of this task…if you can’t raise money, you’re going down. It’s funny how John Rich brought up more than once how Richard SHOULD have been able to at LEAST bring in a decent amount of money since he really IS a HUGE CELEBRITY. Umm…YES, he’s a CELEBRITY and MOST people know who he is…but considering his REPUTATION and what he’s gone thru (going to JAIL and all), I doubt he’s at the top of most celebrities’ lists of friends they would LOVE to help out.
I’m glad when given the choice, Marlee & A.S.A.P. told Trump that he should STILL fire someone. After all, IT’S ONLY BUSINESS. They won fair and square, and at least John Rich still got to keep the money THEY raised for HIS charity.
Great episode this week. Man, this show is SO ADDICTIVE. It really is like a train wreck – it’s SO HORRIBLE but you JUST CAN’T LOOK AWAY.
‘Til next week…
