A lot of kids in high school are told to 'follow your bliss' in the selection of a major in college. Many graduate with a degree in art history or an overcrowded field such as communications. That's fine if your family is wealthy or has contacts and can support you or find you a job after you graduate.

Such graduates frequently cannot find jobs in their fields and take whatever they can, which is usually entry level. These days, even secretaries need some sort of training, they often cannot just walk in off the street with a high school diploma. Heaven help the child who did not even graduate high school.

When you have to actually work to get paid that probably helps too. I remember Donald, Jr. said in a previous season that his dad didn't put up with him or Ivanka slacking off on the job either.

As far as this season goes, I'm glad they returned to the original format. I didn't like the celebrity version.
I have no idea of what the kids are like. I do know that many children of famous people want to prove their personal worth and strike out on their own, without daddy.
The person who builds the business is the guy who appreciates it and knows how the marketplace operates. The kids, if they do not have real struggles in the marketplace, competing against real opponents, ofen just run the business to the ground after daddy dies.
The kids, going into the family business, can get very autocratic and assume airs and expect 'adulation' that they have not really earned.
Both of them, to me, in the beginning, seemed very stilted. The son, though, seems more comfortable to me. The daughter wears more feminine clothing than did Caroline and because of that (sometimes sexy) appearance, seems to put on airs - such as 'ice princess' - to command respect. BIG mistake.
Yeah, they seem better than Paris, but so is my dog better behaved. Paris' problems can be placed squarely at the feet of her self-absorbed parents, in my book.
My vote is still out regarding Trump's kids, but I would have liked to have seen them struggle in the business world the way their dad did, just for a while, so they get to know the personalities and inner dynamics of such organizations. I don't think he is doing them a great favor in hiring them on, especially placing them at the top of his organization so early. I hope I'm wrong.

Ivanka has never seemed cold to me. She seems smart and logical. She calls people on their faults usually.

I'm glad that Alex found a job. I thought that was awesome!

I like the hour format because there was too much unneeded drama on the two hour Celebrity Apprentice shows. This shows me the task, the group dynamics, and the arguments made in the board room that lead up to the final decision.

I'm pulling for James and Gene right now. Don't know how far they'll make it but I really like them.
I have found that when you really like a particular reality show, you always wish it was longer so you don't miss so much middle stuff.

Last night they had the Chopped Championship on for an hour, rather than the regular 30 minute show, and I really enjoyed it. I also liked when they gave Project Runway a 90 minute time slot.

yep and he is one annoying dude. I think his being un-employed has more to do with HIM than the economy.

the task tonight was dumb. Surely there are other challenges some knucklehead who works for this show can come up with.

I think David is one of the most annoying peiople I have ever seen. James might not be warm and fuzzy, but if I had to spend time with one or the other, I would take James anyday. Not entirely sure why his teammates turned on James so quickly (but then of course they only show us what they want us to see - sop who knows what else has gone on.

I cracked up though when the other guy who was brought back in suggested he could manage David next week and then they show us previews of David causing problems. David will be gone within 2 weeks.

I agree with the firing of James though because of how he dismissed the owner of the pet hotel. I just think Trump should have fired both David and James. Clean house, because honestly I know almost nothing about the other men on the show as 90% of the air time has been spent on David and james.

J do wish they would show a lot less of the infighting, I like the show mainly to see business decisions and how those decisions impact whether a team wins or loses.

David is this season's Osamarosa. It's no surprise that his wife left him. He makes me want to punch him in the mouth.
