As you may know, I spent a week in L.A. this past May interviewing with Donald Trump and Mark Burnett as a finalist for the Apprentice, Season 6. I didn’t make it to the top 16 and subsequently didn’t give it much thought since I left L.A. Until yesterday. I was walking through Times Square on the way to the post office, smiling ear-to-ear like I always do when I haven’t been in Times Square in a while…and there, immortalized in bright lights on an enormous billboard, was Mr. Trump advertising the show which starts Jan. 7. I stood there with my mouth open, thinking about what could have been. Boy, did that send me into a temporary pout-fest. So today I looked at the NBC Web site to see who of the 50 of us in L.A. that week actually made it onto the show…. there are some uber-idiots on there! My first thought, “You picked that guy? The one who wore the Miami Vice outfit?” I seriously need to call into question Mr. Burnett’s and Mr. Trump’s judgment. I will be watching this season intently and undoubtedly picking each potential apprentice apart little by little. Stay tuned.
