  • IMHO, this week's show was a dog. Maybe it's because I have never owned a pet I just couldn't relate to the whole concept. Felt that this show was slow moving and that some of the candidates (Marcella and David) were sleep walking. Jim's antics are gettmoreless

    This week's episode started with the doorbell ringing mysteriously at the loft. It was Martha dropping in for a surprise inspection of the loft and the contestants' rooms. There was a bit of a panic and at least one contestant scrambled to make his bed. During her visit, Martha gave Jim the challenge to step up to the plate as Project Manager. He took her up on this challenge.

    The next day, the candidates were invited to Martha's Connecticut studio and given the task of designing experiences with celebrities and their dogs for Beneful's Broadway Barks auction, a charity that raises funds for pet shelters. Matchstick Under Marcella's leadership, Primarius got to work with Susan Lucci, Paul Sorvino, superstar designer Todd Oldham, John Lithgow, and Joanna Gleason, Matchstick designed experiences with Merv Griffin, Chad Pennington, NFL quarterback, Fran Drescher, Bruce Villanch,

    and Jordan Ballard.

    The auction is a nerve wracking experience. Audience members turn up with their dogs dressed in elaborate and somewhat bizarre costumes. A designer experience for a dog's room becomes a big ticket item. Why is money wasted on people who don't know what to do with it? Send it to me instead.

    In the end Matchstick scores another victory. Martha has to decide whether to get rid of Marcella or David who both showed lack lustre performance. David is sent home.

    Perhaps dog lovers will see it differently but, in my opinion, they should have called this boring episode Broadway Barks up the Wrong Tree.

  • A sub-par episode. We got to meet a lot of celebrities and their dogs. In the end David was fired, because Martha wasn’t sure how he got on the show.

    In this episode, the teams met with celebrities and came up with packages that celebrities could provide to the Broadway Barks charity auction. I’m not sure who thought this would be interesting, but it wasn’t. Though, to be fair, they did this same task on the Apprentice non-Martha edition, and it was slightly more interesting. Highlights of the negotiating included John Lithgow saying that they could auction off a chorus part in his musical, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. I didn’t think that a star of a play had the kind of power to just add a cast member, but I guess they do. Also Fran Drescher was on, which was fun.

    In the end, crazy Jim’s teams won, and Marcella’s team lost. There was no reward, for about the fifth time in a row, because hanging out with Martha in your newly designed hotel suite doesn’t count as a reward. Martha realized that David was too young to be an executive, and was a little confused as to how he got on the show in the first place. After a very sweet letter, David was gone. All in all, not the best episode. Soon enough, Jim will be gone though, and then we can all rejoice.moreless
