The Apprentice 2 down to two tonight; Kelly is reportedly not very well-liked.

The Apprentice 2 down to two tonight; Kelly is reportedly not very well-liked.
Tonight’s penultimate Apprentice 2 episode will narrow the final four–Jenn M., Kelly, Kevin, and Sandy–to just two candidates. One of those four got on The AP’s bad side, apparently, as the wire service put out a piece today slamming Kelly. It says that “many candidates expressed not-so-nice comments about software executive Kelly Perdew.” Chris says “Personally, I don’t care for the guy,” while Raj says “He’s just like a pretty humanless fellow. He lacks any chutzpah.” Andy agrees with Raj. However, Kelly does have a defender in Ivana, amazingly enough. She says, “I thought Kelly was great. I didn’t really notice any tension.” The AP’s Derrik J. Lang makes this Kelly-bashing piece newsworthy with this hysterical sentence: “Unlike other reality shows such as CBS’ ‘Survivor,’ the opinions of ‘Apprentice’ firees don’t matter because Trump decides who wins the job with the Trump Organization and a six-figure salary.” In other words, ignore this whole story, because it’s entirely irrelevant.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
