No reason to ask every single player who they want to bring back to the boardroom or have fired and sometimes he askes the same people 2x or more the same questions.
The show is not scripted. From that statement, one would think the celebrities are reading from some script book or Obama-like teleprompter behind Trumps desk. That is not true. Some of the confessional's (those single interview moments) may be rehearsed and pre-prepared by the celebrities however.

It is however, carefully edited and of course Trump manipulates the celebrities in order to get "good TV" situations, and bases his firing choice on that certainly.

By the way, I am going to invent a drinking game after Lou's "110%" line. Every time he says it, you take a shot of your adult beverage of choice. How drunk will one get after the show?

I really admire the contestants (and I can only think of two) who refrain from criticizing others other than offering feedback on ideas or when asked in the board room.

When Aubrey mention that Arsenio left the entertainment industry she clearly offended him. I may be wrong about this but I thought that Arsenio was diagnosed with MS which is why he quit the business until he felt he could handle working again. Whatever the reason, she was way out of line because it was obviously for personal reasons. I hope she is gone soon. Her manipulation tactics are wearing thin and everyone is on to her.

She is either monumentally insensitive or monumentally clueless as to how to treat others.

I agree with Golden Grain that Lou feels any criticism of him means prejudice or dislike. Lou needs to understand he is in a place where everyone is subject to criticism and to take it with graciousness. He should not expect preferential treatment. Marley Matlin didn't and she has a greater obstacle with her deafness than Lou.

Dayna should have left Lisa alone when Lisa was going batty-coo coo over Dayna's subway suggestion. All Dayna succeeded in was poking the beast and making it more angry. Lisa will never give her a chance to show her ideas or suggestions. She really has something against Dayna that is way bigger than just a competitor on her team.
