Apprentice Recap

Man this was a good night of television. The Apprentice and a new Survivor. Doesn't get any better than that. So here goes the Apprentice Recap (another show I applied for that wanted a video)...

The teams were given a task to turn two trailers (that looked like a pimp my ride version of the Oscar Meyer Wiener Mobile) into profitable business with $5,000 in seed money. The both came up with some pretty good ideas considering the only thing that came to my mind was to turn that thing into a rolling hot dog stand. Once again the team that I'm pulling for (ironically enough the high school people) came through with a victory and a prize of $20,000 to spend at some ritzy pearl store in Manhattan.

The college group came up with what I thought was a pretty good idea. They decided to turn the wiener mobile into a massage/beauty shop parlor on wheels. Once again the lazy guy Mike was trying to throw sexual names out there (Massage a Go-Go) for the project and once again he was lazy as hell just passing out flyers complaining that guys don't want to buy massages from other guys. Overall the team did pretty well although I missed how much they raised.

The high school group though came up with a brilliant idea. They turned their wiener mobile into a place where ordinary people could spend a few minutes with a casting agent that would try to land them spots in music videos, commercial and as extras in movies paying up to $70/hour. I thought this was a brilliant idea because everyone wants to be on tv and have their 15 minutes of fame. So for like $25 you could spend time with this casting agent at a shot at the big time (or at least to be the next guy to pitch an erectile disfunction drug). This group ended up making almost $1,000 in one afternoon.
