    All that was said on Adam's podcast was that
    Adam's crew had three different cameras and shot from three different angles. Adam and his guys speculated that this was just typical reality TV fake drama and that when the next episode starts, the editor will magically get the files with the other camera angles and all will be OK. However, Adam doesn't know that since he hasn't seen how it was edited. Also, assuming the files show up, it sounds like Adam wasn't thrilled with the camera angles/composition that was used.

    If you mean he knows how to delegate and then acquiesce to those with stronger personalities then yes Arsenio is a strong player. In which task will you remember him by? In both the tasks in which he was project manager he got run over by Aubrey and then won and in the task where he tanked 'Celebrity Guidebook', they won despite him by the slimmest of margins..$14.

    Well, I will speculate that Arsenio will win, based on
    "Clay Aiken by Penn Jillette" by Penn Jillette. It seems to include most Celebrity Apprentice contestants except for Clay Aiken.

    Not sure what about that song leads anyone to conclude anything about the eventual winner. And what do you mean it doesn't include Clay Aiken? It's in the title and the lyrics. If you mean in the video version, there were a *bunch* of contestants from this season not included. I'm not sure I saw Arsenio in it either. What am I missing. :confused:

    Not even Penn knows who the winner is yet, since it will be announced live this coming Sunday.

    Don't forget that Penn is a magician...

    I have to chime in again here. ;) On Penn's podcast when he premiered the song, he said originally Clay was supposed to sing it with him but they ran into legal issues. So a lot of the lyrics singing about Penn are actually supposed to be Clay singing.

    Likely just a licensing thing, since Clay is signed with a label

    I realize that the finale will be "live", so no decision has been televised yet, but
    I was just getting the vibe that Clay's lack of even appearing in the video meant that he might be harboring some ill will towards Penn, possibly for blowing the task (although I personally think Penn saved it with his idea). I hope that I am wrong about that. I can understand that Clay may be legally obligated to NOT lend his voice to the song, but I would think that he should still be able to lend his image to the video.
    We'll just have to wait and see ... :)

    A win is still a win. And he would have won by a bigger margin if Leno's check had arrived on time. And between the final 4, I think Trump picked the best 4 (now, I don't think it was the best Final 4, but that's not the point). Aubrey lost more tasks for people than she really won. And Lisa never really won anything. She was a workhorse, but also an awful person.

    That is a better way to look at it....how many losses they were responsible for. Aubrey liked to think that every idea she had was the bestÂ…but more of those ideas led to losses, not wins (same with Lisa). In business you need to know when an idea or project is good or bad before taking it on. You can't just run with every idea you have. Sure, Aubrey was creative, but just because you think of a lot of ideas doesn't mean they are all good ideas.

    And for someone who said "Aubrey ran over Arsenio when she was project manager"...she ran (or talked) over everyone, even execs they were interviewing. She never stops talking.

    So what I'm hearing is that its better to not be responsible for wins or losses (Aubrey/Lisa's - don't criticize for being creative argument) and be middling and just happen to be on winning teams to end up winning CA.

    Arsenio's ideas were? Aubrey ran over Arsenio because everytime they had a conflict she got her way. Contrast to Clay with Debbie - no sketch-no mural.

    Not following here. Did you intend to say that Trump picked the best final two out of the final four?

    By firing everybody else, Trump picked the final 16, the final 15, the final 14, etc. So Trump essentially picked the final 4, and now it's down to the final 2 which is also due to Trump's selection process.

    No, it's better to contribute (in various ways...not just "creative"), get along with others, be a team player, not manipulate, and not be disruptive to your team. If Aubrey was the creator of every idea every week, and her teams had a better winning percentage then she would have an argument...but they lost more than they won.

    Sorry, yes. Of the final 4 available, I think Trump picked the best Final 2.

    Of the final 4, I don't think they were the top 4 overall.

    Exactly. If all of Aubry's ideas were great, and she won, she would be in the final 2. If she didn't try and claim everything as her idea, it would have helped as well. I think Trump saw through her "it was all my idea" all the time, especially when others said it was their idea.

    Hey I'll hire some brilliant mercurial personalities and you hire happy worker drones and we'll see who gets ahead. With success comes failure, sometimes more failure than success. If Arsenio was great at execution I'd give him a pass for not being creative but he didn't really even do that much you can point to. Take Arsenio's word for it ""I got two women. One's damn near genius. The other's damn near not." ...Arsenio that applies to you too.
