both teams lose Apprentice 3 task; Net Worth’s Chris is “not a homosexual.”
In the event that you missed last night’s episode of The Apprentice 3, it is important to be aware that Net Worth team member Chris is not gay. Donald Trump tried to persuade him to come out in the boardroom, but unfortunately, Chris isn’t gay. Trump asked him, “Are you not a homosexual?” Chris confirmed that he is not, saying, “Sir, I am not a homosexual.” This was preceded by Chris’ outrage over the advertisement produced by the other team. Making the effortless shift from nonexistent cast member to furious, red-faced screamer, Chris said that, in his team’s ad, they “weren’t over the top in the homosexual connotation. I think that’s disturbing.” Oh, also last night, both teams lost and had to both go to the boardroom, where Muder in Small Town X cast member Kristen got fired. But whatever: Chris is not gay. And, in case you forgot, neither is Ryan Seacrest. Got it?
