Fired Apprentices are “supposed to stick to what actually aired” during interviews

In her requisite interview with TV Guide, fired Apprentice 4 candidate Melissa slipped and told us something about how the fired candidates are supposed to interact with the media.

Responding to a question about setting prices during the task, Melissa prefaced her answer by saying, “We’re supposed to stick to what actually aired…” In other words, if we didn’t see it on TV, it apparently didn’t happen, and the candidate isn’t supposed to talk about it.

Tragically, while she violates that rule, Melissa doesn’t have any real dirt to share, just something boring about pricing and economists.
