The first episode seemed really really close.
They really played up Michael to look like an idiot.



But somehow he was able to pull it through.

It was funny watching Lenny totally blow it when the execs came in and he didn't have anything to ask them. He still seemed to do s nice job though.

I was so happy that woman was voted off the last show. *She deserved it. *The other guy worked his buttocks off.

On the second show, the price was totally way high. You can almost buy an entire pizza for $8.00.

Then when Lee was negotiating with the one guy to buy 1000 sandwiches he wouldn't go lower than $2.50. Why not go 50 cents? Who cares, it would all be found money. You didn't have to cover your expenses. The goal of the show was to get the highest % improvement of in store sales of the sandwiches.

That is exactly what I thought. Even just $2, they would have made $2,000 off that deal. Trump was pretty impressed with his idea to approach an CEO type guy

Isn't it crazy how these challenges are set up and then how the apprentices don't jump on them based on the rules?

If it was up to me, I personally wouldn't hire any of these guys. *None of them really think outside the box. *$7.99 for a pizza sub, come on!

I told me wife too when watching the show, "Are they crazy!?" *"They should be selling for like $2.99 or $3.99."

Even mess around with the numbers

$3.99, $3.95, $3.49, $3.79 They should have done a poll on what jumps out more and appears cheaper not necessarily based on the price.
