    I don't recall any threat either.

    I am predicting an Aubrey/Clay finale.

    Either that or Aubrey/Lisa. I sure hope not Lisa, but it would be kind of interesting to see them go against each other because they have become such good friends.

    I don't think there are rules against it, but when only the PM's charity gets any money (save for the one aberation this season), I don't think they would generally just go along with someone doing it twice in a row.

    May have made sense this time given the task, but the desire to 'spread the money around' would preclude this.

    My jaw dropped when Dyanna, in the van brainstorming the task, said, "I wonder if we can get Debbie Gibson?"

    At the point where Lisa and Clay dragged Dyanna through "Music 101" for 45 minutes to two hours, their chances of being very patient with her pretty much went out the window (though that still doesn't excuse Lisa for her actions). Dyanna would have been much better served, once it was determined that she was the PM and the task took on the direction it did, to just appoint tasks to Clay and Lisa and back the heck off.

    I am quickly losing interest in any of the people that are left.

    And Gay Men's Health Crisis, GLSEN, Nat'l Inclusion Project, Magic Johnson (HIV) Foundation - based on Teresa's charity alone (The NephCure Foundation), I'd almost be willing to bet she's the next to go.

    Clay is a professional musician, Lisa is a professional writer. Dayana can't even rhyme two words.

    Yet, the professional musician and professional writer ignored the woman who can't rhyme and they lost.

    I'm with you on this. They may still have lost, but if they totally deferred to Dayana they would have lost bigger.

    Dayana was horrible, no one can deny this. Aside from interjecting in aspects she had no idea, the one aspect that was hers the brand messaging was a major negative to the judges. Her idea of contributing was coming up on stage with no red/logo or uniform and no mic? I've worked with horrible personalities that get their sh*t done and sweet as pie people who are clueless and I'll take the former every time...cause there is nothing worse than carrying someone. The look on Arsenios face when Trump asked if he wanted to switch Aubrey with Dayana on his team was priceless!

    Clay was right, in this task Dayana should have taken a coordinating role instead of trying to put her stamp as PM.

    Edit: On the pink issue Dayana was trying to communicate that she wanted a more punchier/upbeat sound that's why she said she wanted something 'pink...yellow..something not as flat' which in musical terms made no sense to the band/Clay thus the OMG reactions.

    I was astounded that in the middle of the Dayana/Lisa battle, Aubrey interjected and started bragging about herself. I'm almost in awe of her "talent" for making everything about herself.

    I am surprised she hasn't slipped yet and referred to it as Celebrity Aubrey instead. Her ego is ginormous for doing so little.

    Her ego is large as are other things. I have no doubt with that cheerleader outfit there was a wardrobe malfunction that was edited out. :) She did more than Arsenio and Theresa on the task tho per usual...Arsenio's rapping was poor by his own admission and he didn't even have the stones to stick to drumming at the beginning.

    Let me first say that I am not a fan of Dayana and I felt she was way overdue to be fired.

    Her suggestions should have been understood by the musicians, though, whether or not they were good ones. Pink is a well known singer (I don't listen to that type of music and I'm aware of who she is) and Yello has been around a long time (again, not really a fan, but they had the Oh Yeah! song in Ferris Bueller). I figured the lost looks on their faces was them trying to figure out how in the world those could mesh with the older sound they were going for.

    So you are saying that Dayana, who knew nothing about musical styles and had to be given a 45 minute lesson by Clay and Lisa, was referring to Pop Artist Pink and obscure artist Yello. And Clay and Lisa's derisive laughter and sarcastic reply about adding green was because they were fully aware that Dayana was referring to these artists and they felt it was stupid to mesh the style of Yello with their 50s theme?

    I think the wrong team won. I couldn't understand what Arsenio was even saying in his little rap thing.

    I liked Dayana. She had a much nicer personality than either Lisa or Clay. Lisa just yells a lot (though works hard) and Clay (pompous) but works hard.
    However, Dayana didn't really do anything. Although I wouldn't have wanted either of the other two representing me due to their attitudes, they weren't the reason they lost the task. It fell on Dayana, who really didn't do anything. Trump had no choice.

    Then again, I don't think the Celebrity Apprentices actually do anything once they finish the show. It's just a name, that's it. So they really wouldn't represent anything anyway.

    Besides, watching Clay and Lisa shoot their mouths off is more interesting than Dayana doing...well...nothing. So from a ratings point of view, it was probably a good thing. Imagine Dayana and Penn (who I think would have been great to be one of the final two since he did work hard and smart)...BORING! I bet it will be Aubrey (eye candy) and Lisa (so they have someone obnoxious and loud) at the end. It's all about ratings.

    I couldn't believe they let Lisa and Dayana start in on each other so early in the boardroom. After they'd been fighting for about 15 minutes and I was totally sick of it, I looked at the clock and there were still 33 minutes left in the episode. I turned to my wife and said, does this mean Arsenio's team is going to lose, because why would they allow Lisa and Dayana to fight for so long if they're then going to fight again once the other team leaves?

    Adam Carolla's comments last week on his podcast about Dayana were very evident this week. (If you didn't read the comments in last week's thread, Adam basically said that early in the taping, he overheard Trump talking about how the NBC execs didn't want Dayana on the show and Trump fought for her and was proud of the fact that she was doing well on the show. So basically, the longer Dayana stayed in the competition, the more Trump could gloat about how much smarter he was than the NBC execs. And guess who controls how long Dayana stays on the show?

    Basically, Trump kept Dayana on the show as long as he could, but after this week, he just couldn't justify it anymore. Clay said it best when he said that he didn't agree with HOW Lisa said everything she said, but he agreed with WHAT she said. Dayana was useless, and a good manager would have realized they were out of their depth and simply let the pros do their thing and then take credit for it, but instead she tried to get her input into everything, and it just pissed off the people who actually knew what they were doing.

    Also, maybe this was said and just got edited out of the boardroom portion of the show, but Dayana kept bringing up the fact that she
    asked Lisa if she could work with her, and Lisa shooed her away. I don't understand why Lisa didn't point out that sometimes creative tasks can't be done in a collaborative manner, and that trying to incorporate Dayana into writing the presentation would simply have been counterproductive.
    Not a chance. There's no way that she picks two completely different artists there that just happen to also correspond to colors. She was having difficulty translating a concept from Spanish to English and it came out as "pink . . . or yellow." It was clear she was trying to get them to make the music more upbeat, but it was also clear she had no idea what she was talking about and should have just shut her mouth with regard to the music.

    I think Penn even mentioned Dayana was useless on Adam's podcast. Not sure if he used those words but I am pretty sure that was his sentiment. So, Adam, Penn, Lisa, and Clay have all pretty much agreed on this but some people still insist she was not "useless". :rolleyes:
