Raj has coffee with Robin, who has a boyfriend; wore McEnroe’s underwear.
Raj Bhakta is quickly becoming the Omarosa of The Apprentice 2–the cast member the tabloids can’t get enough of. Today, The New York Post reports that Raj finally had a date with Robin yesterday, although it probably wasn’t really a date. The paper reports that “even though she has a very serious boyfriend–she agreed to at least meet Raj for a cup of Joe.” In slightly more disturbing news, Raj told TV Guide that when he was running around the stadium dodging balls being hit by Anna Kournikova, he was not wearing his own underwear. He says, “Actually, I was wearing John McEnroe’s boxers. I had tighty-whities on and I refused to run around in them, so John ponied up his Calvin Klein boxer briefs and I ran around in them.”
