The Apprentice: Episode 9 Preview

(April 22 UPDATE: Episode 11 preview added to the end of this post.)

Episode 9 of The Apprentice is scheduled to air on Monday, April 24 at 9:00 PM ET/PT.

Donald Trump's children, Ivanka and Donald Jr., watch as the candidates engage in an all-out street war while creating a souvenir program for Ellis Island. The teams race against the clock to take pictures, write copy, create and finally, sell their souvenir programs. The team with the most revenue from the one-day sales event wins and plays golf with Donald Trump and Vijay Singh at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, NJ. The losing team heads to the boardroom where one candidate is fired.

Gold Rush tries to break Synergy's four-week winning streak and struggles amongst themselves while half of Synergy's team misses the boat and gets left behind.

Spoiler:

As we've been reporting, Tarek Saab is on the winning team and he turns out to be one hell of a golfer. Although he had hit some balls at a driving range prior to competing on The Apprentice, Tarek had never played on a course prior to this reward.

Michael switched from Synergy to Gold Rush at the beginning of the the last episode. It's possible (but not likely) that there's further team shuffling prior to this task. Since the makeup of each team is uncertain at this time, we cannot guarantee that Lee is on the winning team. If Lee and Tarek are on the same team as the task starts, you can be certain that Lee Bienstock - the remaining Orthodox Apprentice candidate - will not be fired.


Looking ahead to Episode 10:

Monday, May 1, 9:00 PM ET/PT

The eight remaining candidates travel to Long Island to put together grand openings for two new Hair Cuttery salons. One location is in Oceanside, about 6 miles from the Bienstock home in Lawrence, NY. (The other location is Carle Place.) One project manager decides to get his hair done while a romance may or may not be blossoming on the other team. The winners collaborate with a legendary songwriter, while the losers sing a different tune in a particularly heated boardroom.


Fast forward to Episode 11 of The Apprentice:

Monday, May 8, 9:00 PM ET/PT

The candidates relive their younger days by putting on a tailgate party during a college football game. One team creates a spectacle with an eating contest while members of the other team dress up as cheerleaders. The winners wine and dine in the country, while the losers face a fierce boardroom.

At least one team performed their task prior to the Rutgers University homecoming game against Naval Academy on October 29, 2005. They were promoting blooming onions from Outback Steakhouse.

Interestingly, Randal Pinkett (winner of Season 4) was in attendance at the game. He graduated from Rutgers and his wife is the Senior Alumni Relations Officer for the university's Alumni Association. The big question is if Randal's appearance at the game makes it into the episode. Season 4 was airing while Season 5 was filming. In October, Randal knew he was in the final two, but he hadn't been hired by Trump yet. The Season 5 candidates wouldn't know anything about Randal since there's no television in the suite.

The preview video at the NBC show site has a BR shot of both Synergy and Gold Rush in which both teams seem to remain intact. Also, Lee and Allie are sitting in the seats usually reserved for the team PMs. Just thought this was interesting.

I noticed something interesting: One of The Apprentice's executive producers is Jay Bienstock - does anyone know if there's any relation to Lee?

Even if he was related, which I was wondering too, do you think he's going to come right out and say it? Especially with rumors that he's in the F4 or F2? It's kinda suspect.

when have there been rumors of Lee in the final four or two?

To clear up season four:

Filming of "Apprentice 4" actually ended on I believe May 23, four days after the finale of "Apprentice 3" (when Kendra was hired) aired live. Randal (and also Rebecca) obviously by this point knew they were the final two (which Randal would win December 15 and you should know the controvesy with that), and it was only a question of who would win at that point.

As for the Episode 10 Spoiler (don't read further if you don't want to know):

If you saw the clip show (that aired Sunday 4/23), it's almost certainly Sean and Allie, as Sean kissed her at the end of the clip show. The question is, will their relationship be short or turn out to be the real thing.

Sean and Allie hooking up ? That's not right. Sean is married.

By the way, The Apprentice episodes is now available for download on iTunes.

Actually:

According to NBC's official site, Sean is NOT married nor has any children, so he and Allie becoming a couple is very likely. Whoever said Sean was married may have mixed Sean up with Tarek (who is engaged) or Lenny or Dan (who are married with kids).

Can someone clarify what the schedule was or might have been with respect to Sukkot? Was any filming done during Yom Tov Sukkot?

Did Episode 7 wholly take place before the first two days of Sukkot and Episode 8 after? I can't imagine that there was a two-day break midweek.

Also, has Shabbat not been a problem because tasks aren't held on weekends or something?

Thanks!

Leah:

You're right that it's Sean and Tammy. Big surprise because everything had suggested Sean and Allie.

Walt

i know
people were saying that sean and allie were going to kiss but that didnt happen. who came up with that by the way?

Leah: I think it was Walt who was posting on all the boards that Sean and Allie were the ones with the romance.

 
At 4/27/2006 11:53 PM, Blogger Wallyhorse said...

Yes:

I was me who said it was Sean and Allie who had the "romance", because all signs (including Sean kissing Allie in the clip show) had pointed to that. I was shocked that it's Tammy the "romance" he's with.
