    I was trying to remember that while I was composing my post, but none struck me right off the top of my head. I would imagine that enough time has gone by and enough tasks were done that there would have been enough talk within corporate circles that if Donald was blowing executives off, executives would have been hearing about it.

    But I'm just an oblivious resident of fly-over country, so I would have no idea what corporate circle conversations would consist of anyway! :D

    When are they going to realize that Lisa is mainly responsible for the most losses this season? When are they going to get rid of the most vile person (I think) I've ever seen. She's an insufferable c-word.

    I don't know why someone doesn't just throw "Loser" right back at her- she's the only one left who has earned NO money for her charity. Even Aubrey got handed $10k to pacify her- that makes Lisa the losingest person left.

    Exactly, we don't own it. I believe we could buy it but we would have to pay Trump and SAG wages to the actors.

    Trump says that about all these celebrities, up until he fires them.

    How about Lou saying "Take it back! I don't want to be fired!"?

    That was giggle-worthy. :)

    As soon as he picked the other teams commercial I knew he was toast.

    Exactly. When these celebs are approached to be on the show, they provide the producers with a list of prior engagements that can't be changed, and then they are allowed to leave to handle those obligations. For example, Adam Carolla had to leave pretty early in the season because he was hosting the wedding of one of his employees at his house.
    I'm fairly certain that this is part of the deal that every company understands before going on the show. Their product will be portrayed in a positive light. The executives will get to provide their feedback. But the ultimate decision is up to The Donald, because it's his TV show. If a company has issues with that, they would simply not participate.

    Though I do think it's unfair that these people get a pass to the next week simply because they weren't there. They're unfairly getting farther in the game, by not being there!

    I don't really know how to handle that, but maybe something like: let the missing person be one of the ones pulled back in the boardroom, OR once Trump decides to fire someone, then do a coin flip if it's that person or the missing person.

    That way, the missing person still is at risk of leaving.

    Except it's not the game, or Trump, that's giving them a pass. It's their teammates, and project leader, who's deciding it wouldn't be fair to bring them into the boardroom after losing a task they missed much of. Which is kinda odd if you ask me...

    Penn still contributed more than Lou both times he left :)

    If they hold up their end (or more than hold up there end as Penn has a couple times this season), I don't think their leaving to fulfill a prior engagement should be held against them at all. If Lou did what Lou does, then he had a commitment he needed to fulfill, and his team lost, bring his sorry behind into the boardroom. If he does squat, then leaves, he's fair game. So would anyone else, by the way, but for Penn's couple of absences, he still contributed well to his team's task.

    As long as you are able to contribute to the task in some way as Penn has, you're pretty much guaranteed not to get selected. Say Penn didn't leave and still did the same work, scriptwriting; he'd be around to annoy people like he did with Clay and the PM could say with justification that he sidetracked the team or whatever and bring him back into the boardroom. As it is only the positive aspect of his participation counts. If Aubrey only participated in the idea/theme portion of the task and then left , we'd probably think she was the bees knees instead of a talented unpalatable narcissist. :)

    I was at the event Penn left the show for that week, so I am extremely excited he had chosen not to cancel it!
