The Apprentice 3’s Alex: “It is not in my nature to keep track of every task.”

The Apprentice 3’s Alex: “It is not in my nature to keep track of every task.”
If there was any lingering doubt that The Apprentice 3‘s Alex Thomason is a colossal dumbass, it has been erased by his interview with TV Guide. For starters, he says things to himself such as, “That is gonna be hella far, dude.” He says his “Viva La Reagan Revolution” t-shirt “is a way to draw people into battle so that I can slay them.” He also says that his boardroom lie/misstatement about his number of losses came because “[i]t is not in my nature to keep track of every task. It is not a point of pride for me to rehearse and say, ‘I’ve done this much.'” He also says that all of his boardroom appearances were actually welcome: “I didn’t see losing tasks as that big of a deal because I was getting extra interview time with the boss.”
