Cindy is being warned again about being ditzy (they don't use that word). Holly feels Cindy needs to be kept in line and Curtis thinks they're "bitchy."

Curtis can't write a proper jingle for the plumbing company because he speaks "Australian."

Wow, Bret has an incredibly good speaking voice in the commercials.

Cindy is ditzy. :shuffle: I do love her though, and the other women do seem to be out to get her.

I was really impressed with Bret's voice too! :respec: I loved the "suits" reaction to him turning the other team's signs around! :rofl:

Holy cats is Bret Michaels just unbelievably creative. Love that he did rein it in but he was willing to stick to his vision and knew that if it didn't work he was the only choice to go. I was not surprised at all that Rock Solid won. I even thought the plumber commercial was awesome - he actually took what the CEO said to heart and flipped the crack joke on its head and refocused the ad on the talent/workmanship of the plumbers. I can't help but think that the CEOs discussed this and we just didn't see it to add a tiny bit of question at the boardroom. Aside from the huge creative imbalance, I liked that Bret was involved in all 3 ads (he really does have a great voice for radio work), and Sharon did voice work on one too.

LOVED Cyndi telling Holly "I know about singing live - it's what I do for a living". I got the impression that Holly wanted to shine as the singer in the ads, not Cyndi. I mean seriously, does anyone think Cyndi freakin Lauper would've sung live if she thought she wasn't able?

I think it was right to fire Summer. Curtis didn't have any talent for the creative on this task, and while he thought the direction was too square he didn't voice his opposition much, but I think Summer made a huge mistake in assigning one ad to each person instead of looking at the talent she had and making the two singers work on jingles and she and Curtis could have worked on the scripts. I also think there was a better way to handle Curtis using Australian syntax...Summer and Holly acted like he was too stupid to understand American idioms. Anyway, I think it was the right choice.

Ooooh, next week looks evil. I wouldn't be surprised if Trump decided to keep Curtis specifically to toss him in a team with Sharon and Maria :EVILLE:

Love that Summer went down the elevator in a cocktail dress and emerged on the street wearing pants.

Oh, and Eric Trump is so much better looking like Donny Jr that I wonder what the Trumps' 1980s postman looked like.

I find the two of them equally unattractive, perhaps Eric a bit more so than Don. No doubt Donald is the dad.

IMO Ivanka is the beautiful one of the three.

oh was that Eric? I thought DT 2.0 screwed up his hair even worse

Curtis - what is going on? He has come across as quite capable the whole season, and he has made comments about where he is not strong. But they think he is dumb because he is Aussie? And Maria & Sharon don't like him? Editing?? or what?? I just don't get it.
Also, I think Sharon would turn on Maria in a heartbeat.

Bret does continue to impress. Plus he seems to be so happy and loves to be doing this.

The Holly/Cyndi thing is getting old.
Holly's family is adorable.

I was surprised at the Curtis hate too. Don't know a thing about him besides this show but I've never seen anything to hate on. Edits probably.

Wanted Holly to leave last night, as much as I find Summer weak, Holly just bugs me. I like strong women but not mean, angry little women. And whether she is or not IRL, that's how she's coming across to me.

Bret is a revelation each and every show. Definately impressive.


Oh, and just to add. It does seem Trump has made his choice already. Congratulating Sharon even before PM Bret last night.

I think the hassle between Maira, Sharon and Curtis was brought on by Maria "stealing" a piece of Curtis' team's pizza because Bret was hungry, and Curtis noticed and didn't say anything.....he may have looked stern. From there Sharon expressed something like Curtis is a 33 year old guy who is something like stuck on himself. I really see no evidence of that; he just comes across as confident, something Sharon herself surely is, as well. Much ado about nothing.

I got the impression he had a lot to say about it. Didn't they show a scene of him chasing Maria? And Bret said something about him being really pissed?

I just think the entire fuss he made about was edited out.

I love watching Bret in action and hope he gets better soon, and wow! what a voice!!

I think the final showdown will be between Cindi and Sharon. You can tell they are Trump's favorites. Unless they screw up big time, they're a shoo-in.

Tenacity it seems goes with the same theme for commercials, working mom with no time to spare, blah blah blah. Not very original.

I loved Bret's plumbing "crack" commercial, and it very subtley made fun of the plumber stereotype without insulting them.

I think the two execs were impressed with Bret's demeanor and the way he introduced them to the commercials - very friendly but professional. He made an excellent impression.

Sharon, Maria and Bret worked so well together, I hate to see them split up next week. Chemistry between Bret and Holly should be interesting.

Holly should have been in the boardroom, not Cyndi. She kept pushing to keep it ultra-conservative. Cyndi was saying they needed some edge. Their ads were exactly like every ad for every such company that is on the radio every morning and afternoon commute--a lot of "jabber" as Bret put it. And I always end up changing the station.

Bret being stuck between Holly and Cyndi for a task....have his doctors looked into that experience as a possible cause of his brain hemorrhage? Perhaps seeing the two of them on the television as the show has aired brought it all back?

ITA, although probably Summer would have still went home because Holly would have put up an impressive fight to stay.

How about "orientated" That one really get's me!! ;)

Must chime in cause this has bothered me for years - "speak to" - referring to an idea or a plan. No, you are "speaking about" something, not "to" it.

Thanks for letting me get that off my chest -

Back to Celebrity Apprentice (go Sharon and Bret!!!!).

The large number of dogs confined to backyard in this province speaks to the need for tighter SPCA laws.

The poverty level among single mothers in this provinces speaks to the need for subsidized daycare.

The excessive number of people on ____ (drug) speaks to the pharmaceutical industry's greed.

Speak to = evokes an issue, point to a problem, provides evidence of a problem.

Cyndi is SO dramatic. I feel like she's done a LOT of illegal drugs.

I'm calling Holly's team losing tonight.
