Bradford fired for giving up immunity.

Bradford fired for giving up immunity.
One of the changes to the game for The Apprentice 2 gave winning project managers immunity in the boardroom the following week. Since his team won last week, Bradford won immunity. However, in an act of sheer hyper-masculine stupidity, he said he felt confidant and didn’t need immunity, so Donald Trump let him give it up. Next, project manager Ivana took him with her into the boardroom–along with Jennifer and Stacie J. Although Bradford called a particularly contentious and angry Carolyn “Caroline,” Trump told him, “I think you’re better than anyone in the room.” Still, after yelling at Jennifer for interrupting him even though Trump said she should be safe (“You really ought to keep your mouth shut”), criticizing Ivana (“I just think you weren’t a very good leader”), and pointing out Stacie J.’s inadequacies (“I think that Stacie is hated by all”), he fired Bradford anyway for his “stupid, impulsive, life-threatening decision, that frankly if you were running a company and made that kind of decision, you destroy that company instantaneously.” Ivana freaked out (“Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god”) and Jennifer realized how lucky she was (“I guess I’ll never speak up again. I’m sorry.”)
