The Apprentice:Donald Trump 4, Episode 9

The Apprentice 4 opened with everyone waiting to see who would come back from the latest board room. They were shocked when only Randal and Rebecca came back, meaning Brian and Marshawn had both been fired.

After that excitement was over, Alla and Adam were trying to make peace with Clay who was, shall we say, less than receptive. He listened to them briefly before standing up and saying he was done and left the room in a huff.

The next morning the teams were told to meet with Trump and Miss Universe, Jennifer Hawkins, at Trump Model Management. Is there anything this man won’t slap his name on? Seeing as the teams were again uneven, Trump asked Clay if he would like to move over to Excel with with Randal and Rebecca and he said he would. Lucky them.

This weeks task had to be the oddest fit yet. The teams were to interview musicians and help them write a song to be played on XM Radio on the XM Café channel. The song that fit the format the best, as judged by XM executives, would be the winner. Song writing? On a show about a job interview? Say what?

Rebecca was project manager for Excel and chose Jidé, a singer/songwriter from Nigeria. , Capital Edge’s project manager was Felisha, and they went for a singer/songwriter named Levi.

Excel sat down with Jidé to discuss his life and try to come up with a song and….you know what…this task sucked so bad I can’t even stand to write about it. Excel lost, but honestly, I thought both songs sucked and this task was a total mis-fit with the concept of the show. These people are not songwriters and they should be nowhere near the creative end of a recording studio.

Due to Clay being a whiny little pain-in-the-ass he got fired. The reward for Capital Edge was to fly around with Trump in his helicopter and look at all his properties.

Hands down, this was one of the worst episodes in all four seasons.
