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.
+ also: Ivana still defending her stripping.
