The Apprentice

I don't care who says what about Donald Trump! I like The Apprentice.

I had been looking forward to the new season which started last Sunday and I loved it.

I like the new twists in the show this season:

1) The winning team's project manager remains project manager for the following week's task. (in past seasons the project manager for both team changed every week)
2) The winning team's project manager get to sit with Trump in the boardroom and helps (along with Trumps daughter) advise him regarding who on the losing team should be fired
3) And the biggest change...... The losing team has to live in a tent for the week following its loss while the winning team lives in a mansion. It'll be interesting to see what effect this "haves vs have nots" has on the outcome. Will the adverse conditions in the tent motivate the losers to become winners or will the tent-dwellers spiral downward?

I miss Carolyn and the gentleman (can't remember his name) who advised Trump last year and were his "eyes and ears". Trump's daughter is now advising Trump and doesn't seem to have the leadership credibility that those two seasoned advisors had last year.

Initial thoughts:
Heidi is great
Frank is obnoxious and won't admit any mistakes although he clearly makes them
