The Apprentice Finale

An so the end is near, and now they face the final curtain...

As this show seems to make an entry every Thursday, although shamelessly unrelated to JOS or software, I went for a preemptive strike...

So who will be the big winner.
Kwame an "on leave" Investment Manager at Goldman-Sachs who seems to have had little actual success but managed to make it to the end

OR

Bill the owner of a multi-million dollar cigar business  who seems to complain as much as he succeeds?

It's not good enough to say Bill or Kwame, can you justify it?


I vote Kwame, not because of his success, but because of his continued ability to be saved by Trump even when he failed to perform.    Seems Trump may want an in with G-S especially with a financially strapped casino system.  We also saw Trump take the word from his "trusted" advisor's, who are uncomfortable with those outside the financial circle.  Kwame has the background and the MBA from Harvard.

I thought I made it clear on previous threads who will win.

Bill -- so far the manufactured crisis is much worse for Kwame than Bill.  Omarosa flat out lies to Kwame and messes up the one thing that the casino boss says is the most important.  Bill had some problem with where to put knick-knacks.

Kwame is not nearly big enough in GS to be a real help.

I'm sure Jon Corzine (Senator from NJ, chair of the DSCC and ex-head of GS) takes Trump's calls (and donations).

The editors may have been hiding Kwame's abilities from us.  For example, on last night's special that Miz-a-ra-hi-ha-ha guy said that it was Kwame who calmy approached him and closed the deal *off camera* after the rest of them had been bumbling through the negotiations.

It was a good idea capitalizing the pronoun.

I think I saw the same thing in the Bible somewhere.

Bill is more flexible and probably is the better fit for the Trump organization.  I like Kwame but he might need to be a bit more hands-on.

BUT let's not forget the lying Diva...so Omarossa wasn't a plant...she really did screw over Kwame with her selfishness and way oversized ego.  Then she still tried to sell her crap to Trump.  Glad that at the end of the show the Donald said what he said to her about "truth" -- but she still didn't seem to get it. 

Those of you Omarossa defenders  -- what do you say now?  How can anyone defend the liar?

Kwame's success on The Apprentice wouldn't affect GS's decision on any potential Trump deals one way or the other.
