    First thing that happens, Trump fires Keshia Knight Pulliam for not being willing to call and solicit donations from Bill Cosby.

    But more importantly, am I the only one who loves Sig Hansen??

    I have a feeling that this season was taped before the recent Bill Cosby scandals exploded in the media. Really, she wasn't fired strictly for not calling one particular potential donor but more for not bringing more money to the table in a fundraising task in general.

    I believe they said on the Today show that this season was taped last spring.

    I cancelled my season pass partway through the second episode. I couldn't take all the bad plastic surgery not to mention Geraldo's childess ways.

    I've never really given two craps about Geraldo Rivera, so I had no idea what he was like, but on this show he seems to be a major league ass-wagon! And I can tell from the first two nights that no matter how hard people try to get rid of him (thank you for that!), Trump just is not going to do it.

    That could really curtail my desire to even watch this season.

    Geraldo is probably still bitter about finding NOTHING in Al Capone's vaults.

    I always chuckle when the Donald tosses in the "MILLIONS and MILLIONS of people are watching....."

    I thought it debuted Sunday? Did you time travel to watch the second episode?

    not only does trump seem determined to keep rivera, he's bending over backwards to praise him for no game-related reason. based on the three boardrooms so far, i'd say rivera has a good chance to win, thanks to trump.

    my early favorite is leeza gibbons, she's knocking out tasks, and staying under the radar (so far).

    This. The PM of the losing team on a fundraiser is almost always fired.

    I honestly thought Jonas's 4 million twitter followers would mean he'd survive the boardroom, Trump likes his ratings. Seems that this is going to be another season where Trump's cronies get a pass and the younger generation he knows nothing about will be fired.

    My money is on Leeza Gibbons, but Trump's bromance with squirrelly Geraldo may win the day. Only an ego like Trump's would understand and ego like Rivera's.

    Leeza all the way.

    Yes it was filmed before the recent allegations, but not before it obviously became a problem for her. And while she likely would have stayed if she had brought in enough money, he did actually, literally say he fired her because she hadn't tried to call Cosby.

    I don't like Trump firing people because he thinks they made a mistake at bringing in the wrong person into the boardroom. I knew Geraldo wouldn't be fired as he creates disorder and conflict and that is what brings people to watch and talk about the show. Is Geraldo acting this way on purpose or not? hmm.

    I thought it was obvious that he was going out of his way to be a d*ck in that particular episode. The outcome was as he would have liked, helped because others are apparently a little afraid of crossing him.

    Season pass cancelled, I only watched because of Gilbert, since he's gone I have no reason to watch. It'll be a season like when Joan was on, Geraldo can be an ass and nothing will happen to him.

    I actually thought it was of Kevin (Jonas) to bring Ian into the board room. He knew that Geraldo would be hard to get rid of and that Ian would be backing him up helping him explain how disruptive Geraldo was during the project. The problem is Ian said at a point time that Geraldo would interrupt multiple times to repeat his idea and after it was shot down he would go away and not help for some time. Kevin should have kept talking about the script and said that by the time it was caught, in editing, it was impossible to go back and add in the missing pieces.

    This is kind of a random comment out of nowhere and without context. If I assume you are referring to the three candidate firings in the episode from four days ago, that is best explained by the fact that Trump is clearing the deck so the finalists can compete against each other in the penultimate episode on Monday and show the results in the live finale the Monday after next.
