Episode Summary

Decision Time
The Hollywood Bowl is the setting for the sixth-season finale, as the final four candidates enter the boardroom. After reviewing their videos once more, polling the fired candidates, and letting the four remaining candidates make their separate cases, Trump wasted no time in firing Frank and Nicole -- not only for their weaker video, but also for Frank's potential to be a liability to one of his companies, and Nicole for her unprofessional romance with Tim. After a final showdown between the final two candidates, James and Stefani, Trump decided there was still a bit to be desired from James and that Stefani made a much better case. So James was the final candidate fired, and Stefani was hired as the sixth Apprentice.moreless

  • Not as horrendous as the rest of the season

    The major plus point was it was only 42 min long so we didn't have to sit through hours of utter drivel but talking to everybody but the candidates. A major negative point is that the final challenge was a wholly ineffectual tool to determine the winner: in all the other seasons it has been a major event, here it was a 60 second commercial. Anyway back to this episode. I think the right person got hired meaning none of the cartoon characters got hired. Stefani was the obvious best candidate, esp. given her background in construction. The tension was actually drawn out quite nicely and it did have the feel of a proper boardroom. It was also good to see George back even if for only a minute or so. I am however wondering what happened to Bill Rancic: he wasn't in the winners enclosure..(was he getting married this w/end?) Overall this season was very poor and the candidates were treated incredibly badly. Hopefully the next one will be much better!moreless
  • Extremely anti-climatic finale for this season.

    There were no fireworks in this final boardroom. The final four candidates were supposed to be fighting for their life, but no one was really prompted or given the opportunity to really put the screws to their competition. This final boardroom seemed more like a "love-fest".

    I think Stefani deserved to win and I agree with Heidi's assessment that you don't have to be a loud leader to be a good leader. Her resume video said it best when she said that she does her job with "class". Not something you can say about many of the other candidates.moreless
  • Yawnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

    After Season 2 I only watched the finales (though I do check it out occassionally during the season and see clips on "The Soup" and other clip shows). This show has become nothing more than products placement for Trumps sponsors and a way to get interviewees to promote "The Donald" and his projects for free. The first season was new and fresh - but not its just dragging on too long - relying on "Real World" type nonsense like the infamous inter office romance that Trump refers to in the finale. Ive noticed a pattern has developed regarding who is hired: Man, Man, Woman, Man, Man, Woman.... The Donald couldnt possibly have chosen the Man or he would have been called Sexist (5 of 6 winners being men). Even then 2/3 of his hires for the show have been Men. Of course the final 2 people are probably people Trump would hire - as he always says - so, all other things being equal - I have to wonder whether the gender of the person chosen comes into play.

    Ratings have slide steadily from Season 1, how it still stays on the air is beyond me. Donald.... youre FIRED !!!moreless
  • After a season where the potential apprentices were treated so poorly, the finale ended on a high light. Previous seasons, I feel he tried to please his sponsors who pick up the tab for the first year salary. This year he got it right.moreless

    After watching the commercials again, there was a clear winner of the task in my mind, and it was not Frank and Nicole. When it was time to do the firing he told Frank he almost fired him the first week and probably should have but his New Yorker attitude kept him alive way too long. Nicole was the next victim.

    Now it was down to Stephanie and James. As I had previously said I did not think James had what Trump needed, and after seeing his short video it showed it in spades. You do not go into a meeting the way he did without a tie, just not done in big business. Stephanie on the other hand was always dressed for success and when the depth of her background was fully shown it was a no brainer to me.

    Here is a woman who can write the contract, has worked in and around the building trade and is a lawyer. She can write up the contract and sue you when you do not comply.

    The more about her depth of litigation that came out, the more I was sure I would hire her if it were my job to offer.

    But I was afraid of the political correctness factor coming in especially after the unfortunate incident this week at Virginia Tech.

    What I found interesting was both women wanted the job in at the resort and both the guys wanted to be in Atlanta. My question is why, with the internet everywhere, and satellite TV everywhere, I would be just as at home on a nice island than in the heart of a city.moreless

    • George Ross makes his first and only appearance on the show since the fifth-season finale.

    • Stefani's hiring makes her the second woman to be hired in the history of the show, following Kendra's hiring in season three. It also makes her the first candidate to be hired without ever having been Project Manager.

    • Frank, James, Nicole, and Stefani all faced off in the final boardroom. After their videos from the previous episode were judged, and after their teammates from the final task were questioned, Trump fires Frank and Nicole, with Frank being fired for his unpredictability and potential to be a liability, and Nicole for her romance with Tim. Once it's down to the final two of James and Stefani, he fires James and hires Stefani.
