    To me it was a toss up in this task. Annie did more work than either of them, but between Brande and Melissa, I don't really think either did anything to shine but neither made any costly mistakes. This wasn't one of those weeks where someone on the losing team made a mistake or decision that caused them to lose.

    Not to take credit away from Melissa, but to go back to the week where she produced the show for the video phone, sure she did great...as she stated, producing shows is what she does for a living.

    I had to wait and respond on my computer instead of my phone...

    You're right she didn't flat out say Melissa was the weaker player. In the initial board room (with both teams) what you said is close to what Annie said. She said "actually I think I can beat you [Melissa] more easily than I can beat Brande". Which is pretty much the same as saying Melissa is the weaker player. In the second board room (just the losing team) Annie flat out says "Brande has been a stronger player overall", which also means she thinks Melissa is the weaker player.

    No I'm not saying she raised more money and sure that is a part of the competition but that isn't the only part (like you stated) and it wasn't even part of this task. For exact examples check my previous post.

    No one is infallible, Trump isn't perfect and like it's been posted here before there could be any number of reasons to fire a specific person; ratings, more drama or maybe as simple as Trump has a thing for Brande.

    In the second board room, Melissa says "I followed my instructions as given to me by my project manager" and "can I ask a question as to why, when I followed and did everything asked and expected of me, when I gave up my own ideas and worked 110%". So according to Melissa she did just fine.

    I didn't say Brande did NOTHING in this task, I said she did nothing in the Life Lock task where Jesse was sick all day and she was just flirting with the workers.

    Joan said she was expecting Annie to unload in the board room about Brande. As far as I've seen, Annie can give a little more than those two comments you mentioned.

    So for Hershel fund raising doesn't matter if it's not on a fund raising task. That's fair and I agree, but than why was it such a big deal in this NON fund raising task?

    If Hershel (the biggest fund raiser on his team) got fired in a non fund raising task, why does it matter how much $$$ Brande brought in?

    I don't think Brande and Melissa had the same level of accountability in this board room. The PM always has to be held a little more accountable than the workers. In this task (like you said) Melissa made no costly mistakes. The PM should have been let go, but was saved last minute by some unknown reason and I think the reason they give (fund raising) is bs, again why didn't that help Hershel?

    AHHHHHHHH anyway, I'm just saying Brande should have been the one to go.

    This weeks should be a good one though

    You left off the reason Annie said she felt she could beat Melissa, which was "because Brande can raise more money than you [Melissa]". That is not saying Melissa is the weaker player, that is saying Melissa is not a better fund raiser and I stand a better chance against you in the final fund raising task.

    Well, then maybe that is her perspective. Or she saw Trump start to target Melissa so helped guide Trump toward firing Melissa, and keeping herself out of the crossfire.



    That was according to the Melissa in the boardroom. What about the Melissa who was complaining to the cameras and to Brande during the task who said "I wasn't given any tasks, and wasn't allowed to do anything". Who is two-faced now?




    I don't think it does matter in this task. I only brought it up as Annie's reason for why she can beat Melissa over Brande.




    I don't really know what their reason was for keeping Brande, because I didn't see that note Trump passed to Kramer. Whatever was on that note seemed to sway the opinion, and since they had already mentioned Brande's fund raising before the note, the fund raising couldn't have been what was on the secretive note. I've always thought the PM aspect has been overrated. If you performed well (or poorly) you should be given credit or be held accountable.

    i got to see the fight clip again on Chelsea this week. Joan called poker players lower than white trash. Also chelsea commented "usually when a horse hurts their leg, they are put down.'

    of course anne countered poker players are the nicest thing in the world

    i wonder if DT ever played poker..but my guess is he's not much of a gambler
