I never thought she looked bad on the show. I always thought she was a very pretty girl. I don't think those photos look anything like her.

She's pretty enough on the show, in a little girl way. On that site she looks like the latest client at Glamour Shots. What's funny is when you click the link for appearances........it says coming soon. Just like every other reality show participant she's ready to grab her 15 minutes.

The pictures are definitely gorgeous but I thought she was pretty before those pictures.

Isn't amazing what make-up and good lighting will do for a person?

Before tonights episode I had been rooting for Tana BUT NOT AFTER TONIGHT. That was so incredibly lame -- I have exemption, see ya -- only to take all the credit at the presentation.

I cant stand glory hogs and both Craig and Tana owe Kendra one hell of an apology. I hope Kendra wins and, after being extremely gracious on camera, rubs their noses in it afterward. :twisted:

Argh. Problem is that Kendra really bugs me. She was whimpering like a child. "I"m the project manager and SHE's taking all the glory!"

They did do a good job on the brochure -- but please -- her unprofessional whining just irked me.

I don't dislike her -- but something about just needles me.

Lauren, you took the words right out of mouth! I feel the exact same way. I was a BIG Tana fan but after last night I'm rooting for Kendra now.

GO KENDRA!

If she felt that strongly why couldn't she just say to both of them before they got into the presentation I completed the task alone so therefore I will be making the presentation and I want you 2 to stand down.

Probably because that would just cuz more animosity between them and they do have to continue working together for at least 2 more tasks. The whole "don't cut off your nose to spite your face" thing.

And, btw, I totally agree about Alex too. IMO, him and Bren are both worthless. I kept saying, "fire all three of them!" last night.

I agree Xandra but my only objection was that she had to whine about it anyway. She should have taken the high road on this and not said anything. JMHO

It's called 'venting'. We all do it, dear. If we didn't our heads would explode. :wink: What do you think we are all doing on these message boards?

My guess as to why she didnt tell them to "stand down" is because -- at least from what we saw last night, Tana just launched right in.  My guess is that Kendra had her ideas for a presentation and never dreamed that two people who barely even saw the finished program would attempt to present what they knew nothing about.

I would agree with that.

Did you see Tana's face when Kendra just 'took back' the presentation from her. Tana kept smiling at the client like "this is what we had planned" but it was sooo obvious that she was fuming. That's when I lost respect for Tana because it was Kendra's task and Kendra was the one who finished it all my herself. But Tana didn't want her to get all the glory, even though she deserved it. Sneaky! I didn't like that.

GO KENDRA! GO KENDRA!

I LOVED the look on Tana's face when Kendra did that! :P Priceless.

It looks like Kendra has a harder time next week. This task was her field, so they should have listened to her and it did make it easier for her since she knew what she was doing (like the bridal shop task and the girl (?) in the last season).

I wasn't rooting for Kendra, but I am now. I like how she was doing better in the basketball reward too. I think Tana just assumes she's better than Kendra.

That was Sandy from last season. She's from my area.

Yep, me too. Tana does think that and I think that will be her downfall.

GO KENDRA!

I'm gonna be in trouble for this one.... but in the last while I've developed a respect for Craig actually. I really didn't see what the problem was with his comment that the theme wasn't layed out. Kendra was good at developing the pamphlet -- but as a team leader it was her responsibility to involve her team -- not to do the whole job. If her team needed sleep -- she should have recognized that. A good leader is just that a "Leader" -- not someone who ignores the needs of her team and does the work herself. Kendra lacked delegation skills, lacked communication skills, and then lacked the reality that in the business world doing it all yourself rarely gets you anywhere. In the future, should she get the job, it will be Trump who will take all the credit for her work. Thats a reality of the business world.

I still say she's too young for any real challenge. She couldn't lead two people -- how will she lead a hundred?

I hear this argument a lot and even though I see your point I have not always agreed with this. This is a competition and everyone knows that is aware of that. It's a totally different setting than a 'work' setting where the PM is either your co-worker, supervisor or even your boss. The PM on "The Apprentice" usually doesn't get the 'respect' they deserve or need because the people working with them still see them as the competition so their mindset is, "I have to make this person look bad" or whatever.

Do you see what I'm saying? I just don't think it's fair to say "would you do that in the working world?" when it's not really comparing apples to apples.

Let me use this an example. When I was in college I was late to class once and my teacher tried to embarrass me by saying, "would you be late to a job?" and I came back with, "there is only one difference, if this was a job would be paying me and not the other way around." But that's the truth, our tuition pays their salaries. So, it's just the same thing. When you are WORKING for someon your mindset is just different. Maybe it shouldn't be but it just is.

Well put Xandra! And yes you are right that in this setting Kendra did appear to do all the work and then have to fight to take the credit. I guess I've wondered about that too though. He management of the team on this one was still rather obscure. True, on her own she came up with an excellent publication. But -- there are two things I was left wondering regarding that.

What we saw is the clock pointing to 1 or 2 o'clock. We saw Craig and Tana falling asleep and clearly pointing out that they are not amoung the few who can do all nighters -- especially without having any idea of what they were doing. The project had begun at 8:30am (is that correct?) so they had already worked at least 17 hours on it. At the late hour that they did finally get to bed, Kendra completed the work on her own. So is that to say that they did not contribute to the final product? It sounded to me like it was Craig who managed the interior photos. Tana came up with the suggestion of talking to people to find the words to describe the car.

If the final product hadn't been so good -- who would have been at fault but the project manager who didn't "lead" her team?

I am surprised that no one mentioned Alex. I believe he was responsible for taking most of the pics including interior ones that he never did. Chris even said that we should have had those shots as did Bren. I thought for sure when Trump was going after Alex about not speaking up on the text in the brochure and the bad pics he had helped chose that he was going to fire him. I realize it was Chris' time to go but I think we will see Alex go next what a loser. I also agree with many that Graig and Tana were riding Kendra's coattails but her whining really bugged me. If she felt that strongly why couldn't she just say to both of them before they got into the presentation I completed the task alone so therefore I will be making the presentation and I want you 2 to stand down.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think that Trump likes Alex. Last week, he said Alex was terrible only because he was surrounded by terrible people. Up to that point, Alex had been on a winning team. Personally, I thought Alex could have gone last night, too.

I saw it a little differently. I thought Craig and Tana's attitude was poor because in their heart of hearts they do think that they are "better" in general (Smarter/more capable) etc. than Kendra. We saw that on the pizza task when Craig kept cutting Kendra off. What C & T should have realized is that even if they could assume they are "better: than K in a general sense, they certainly wouldnt be her equal in an arena in which she specialized. She tried on several occassions to explain to them that the photo layout portion of the task required more lead time than the verbiage/theme elements. C&T were bored with it and left the room -- which is why they didnt "understand" the concept. I've seen that a lot with smart people -- they are so used to being ahead of the curve that if they dont pick something up right away and dont see the relevance to them in the future, the tune out/get bored. (ie. Erin on the Home Depot task)

Kendra had a finite number of photos to work with given the time constraints, budget etc. While I am no professional like Kendra, it only makes sense that the picture selection would in some way dictate the thematic scheme. Had C&T taken the time/shown the interest in the photo selection process, they would have grasped where the thing was going and would have been able to help with the rest of the process.

And as far as their 17 hours of help -- Kendra TOLD Craig exactly what shots. I do give credit to Tana for always remembering the marketing research part, but I think thats a small piece of the puzzle.

Zoomer I think Trump was considering Alex but then both Carolyn and George said Chris. I think he was up in the air until that.

I think if Alex's team loses again next week, he will go. What would be interesting is if that team loses who will the remaining player pick to come back to the team. If he picks Kendra it will once again be book smarts vs. street smarts.

Tana and Craig didn't want to pull an all-nighter. Not everyone can! I've done it -- and it is really rough -- but more than that -- the resulting product of a bunch of really tired people -- isn't the best. The thing is -- that the whole production of the show last night made it look like sleeping at all is saying you're not good at what you do. When in fact the stats prove otherwise. In fact production is higher in countries where afternoon naps are a part of the job. So getting a good night's sleep freshens the mind -- gives you a more positive view of the project -- and simply --- makes you a whole lot more likable. Alex too needed sleep -- so what? I thought the comments regarding his nap were ridiculous too.

Second -- the clock showed those two going to bed well past midnight. It then jumped to Kendra saying she did the whole thing by herself about 4 or 5 hours later. Its all in the presentation -- the work the other two did was clearly edited out.

Sorry -- dont buy that about the sleeping. Yes adequate sleep is important to be a good employee as a general rule, but when you are working on a tight deadline, you buck up. I agree with trump, if you cant then you dont belong in the game. If they were up all night because the PM didnt manage their time well that would be one thing, but given that the other team also had to stay up all night to finish, it would support the fact that it was a project that required a push.

I'm just wondering whether Donald Trump is actually a good businessman, and whether you'd really want to work for him.

Isn't his Hotel and his Casino bankrupt? There is an excerpt from a speech Warren Buffett (2nd richest man in the world after Bill Gates) thats at where Buffett talks about how Trump wasn't a good real estate investor.

You can read the details at:

http://www.kenlet.com

In this 1991 excerpt in a Q&A session, Buffett says "Where did Donald Trump go wrong? the big problem with Donald Trump was he never went right."

Plus you always hear about how his companies are bankrupt...

In light of this fact you think it would be worth it to learn how to be a successful business person under Trump?

I had to vote yes because any opportunity to acquire some of his vast knowledge could only help ... granted I don't like some of his methods or a large part of his "public personna", but I would like to acquire more skills that time in his organization would provide, and as mentioned elsewhere in this Forum ... I would love my handy new Rolodex! :wink:

And aside from the contacts, Kendra said something interesting last night -- education is a chance to learn from other peoples mistakes. In a way, whether Trump is good or bad, she will still learn a lot.

I agree ... not to mention learning from the good people Trump seems to have surrounded himself with!
