Reality TV World Message Board Forums
PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

Pretty classless, in my opinion. I was very happy when he won, but he has tarnished himself a bit, to me at least.

The shine is gone. He could have shown himself to be a really big man. Instead he just looked like an arrogant, egotistical, self-centered person who was just out for number one.

So what he was looking out for himself. I probably would have gave her the job but I'm not going to knock him done for saying no. You have to be arrogant, egotistical and self-centered to work for DT. So I'm not mad at him.

What do you mean "the shine" is gone? You are a total racist and I don't appreciate that comment.

I am really disappointed in Randal. He wouldn't have lost a bit of glory by letting Trump hire Rebecca. In fact, he could have been the Apprentice AND the hero, but now he's just the JERK.

I agree. I had a lot of respect for Randal, but after seeing what he did in the finale, I lost that respect. That was just low. Rebecca would be a great asset to any company she works for and you know, I believe she is going to make it bigger than Randal one day. Rebecca seems to be a very humble and intelligent woman. Eeven though she did not win this, I feel she has already won. Her name and reputation are out there, and she is going to go far!!!!

Randal could have said so many things at that point, I was hoping to hear

There may be a place for Rebecca on my team one day or even throwing the ball back in Trumps court but I never expected that.

It was sad and I think we all now know how the last 13 weeks has changed Mr. Randal can anyone say SELFISH.

As Trump said, to some this may be entertainment, but to him it was about finding good people to fit in his organization. The decision he made or wanted to make was about finding two highly talented individuals to bring into his organization. The decision he placed on Randall was nothing more than an executive decision, the kind of decision he will have to make everyday while working in the Trump organization.

would you have called rebecca "classless" had she done the same thing?

the purpose of the show is to compete. for one available position, as the apprentice. after 13 weeks of hard work, why on earth should the winner be forced to share the spotlight?

trump was just an idiot in setting it up the way that he did. if he wanted rebecca, he should have hired her himself.

randal is a good hardworking (oh, and SMART, as we all know) person who did what any person with common sense should have done--he looked out for himself. he would have been a big softy had he said "aw, yea. lets hire her too". screw that.

had rebecca been in the same situation, i would have expected her to do exactly what randal did.

6. "RE: I don't believe he did it"
Sorry to disagree with you all but I'm glad he did it! I couldn't believe that Trump even posed the question to him. Why should he support hiring someone that clearly didn't win the competion? If Trump thought she was best, he should have hired her instead. I've never seen him ask anyone else to share the honor of being apprentice. Why now, why Randal? You can't tell me that the other 2nd place candidates were not as experienced or favored as Rebecca. Some would even say they were better qualified than the winners. Did Trump ask the winner if he should hire them. I don't think so.

The honor of being the apprentice is Randals' alone and should never have been up for any other consideration. Trump should be ashamed of himself.

Rebecca, even with her continuously growing losing record, had the nerve to say that Randal lacked focus. At least he knew enough to raise money for the charity, which was the whole point of the events. Rebecca was a great organizer and I dare say motivating leader at times. Unfortunately, she could not accomplish the tasks set before her so she ultimately failed at the job she was given--repeatedly.

Randal had no obligation to her or anyone else to support them getting the job. As he mentioned, the show is called "The Apprentice," not "The Apprenti." Finally, Trump knew he was wrong to even suggest Rebecca being hired, that was why he stood down in the end. He would've looked like a fool otherwise!

Randal, you did the right thing!

I agree with you. Why should Randall, the clearly superior candidate, share the honors? If he won, he won. Giving them both the job would detract from Randall's win. There can only be one winner. This is not a schoolyard game where everyone is given a prize for showing up. This is the big leagues- only one team takes home the World Series title.

I completely disagree with you. You are mixing up the show with real life. The purpose is to hire someone to help your company. And Trump had 2 excellent people he could have hired. But Randle showed his true colors’, selfishness. Rebecca will be no doubt get lots of well deserved offers and she will be a huge asset to any company. But Trump lost her because Randle made a selfish decision. She definitely would have helped Trumps company.

Trump playing puppet master figured Randall being the nice guy would play right into his hand and allow Rebecca to start her project as well. A little ironic that each project was located close to home.. for both.
And.. when was there an apprentice that he gave up the projects.. before the winner was announced...

I have to disagree. The purpose of the game is to win. Randal won and to ask him to split his win, is pretty lame. If Trump wants to give Rebecca a job, he can offer her any other job he wants, but he can't make her his Apprentice. That can belong to only one person per season.

I agree with you completely! I've lurked on these boards for years and never posted, but last night's poor showing by Randal promted me to vent! I was soooo disappointed by his behavior. I had really been rooting for him. As a business executive myself, I understand that a good leader puts the team's best interest ahead of his own personal gain. That is exactly what Randal should have done. Sure, hiring Rebecca may have taken away from his "spotlight" but it would have benefitted the Trump organization. I don't think anyone can deny that Rebecca would have been a tremendous asset. After all of Randal's glowing remarks about her performance, he must know deep down how dynamic she is.

And what was Trump thinking, allowing a new, unproven hire in his organization make such a big personel decision?! He's the boss, not Randal. He miscalulated that decision. Let's hope Rebecca gets hired on by one of Trump's competitors and helps force a hostile takeover of one of his companies. She's tough enough to do it...remember how hard she negotiated with Randal when selecting her team for the final task? That was one area where she clearly outdid him!

I agree with you when you said this was about finding two great people to bring into the organization. However, the apprentice is a singular noun. There can be only one. I agree Rebecca can be hired on, but the show wasn't the proper venue for her to be hired on.

everyone with this view keeps throwing around this word "selfish" describing randal's actions.

how is this being selfish?? he WON the competition. plain as day. that's it. it was totally unfair for trump to put him in the position of being painted as the bad guy anyway. the tension on that stage last night hurt to watch... the moment that trump did that, he trapped randal. but randal came out strong and did what he should have done.

have you ever worked hard for anything in your life? if you win something, it's yours to keep, not to share.

You all seem to be neglecting to see the real Jerk here. You keep talking about Randal. Don't get me wrong I agree with you but the real jerk here is Trump. If he was just testing Randal then he did it at Rebecca's expense and without any consideration for her. If he was going to bring it up he should have already decided to hire her regardless of what Randal said or else don't bring it up at all. It was cruel what he did to Rebecca. She was not only let down once, but he elevated her hopes a second time just to let her down again. Trump is Trump. He makes his own decisions. He doesn't need to rely on his apprentice to make them for him. His hands were not tied. He's a jerk.

But the Team is Team Trump. Randall had been hired, and the contest was over. This was his opportunity to prove he was playing on Team Trump, that he understood decisions were to be made for the good of the organization, not for his own inflated sense of self and instead he proved that Trump had just made a huge mistake in hiring him. Randall will have to come down more than a few pegs if he's going to be working for Trump instead of running his own business. He will have to share the glory (in fact, he'll need to recognize that sometimes he won't get any of it!) and he just proved that's going to be difficult for him.

I actually think it was Trump that showed little class. He put Randal unfairly on the spot and asked him to do something that he's never asked anyone else to do. I bet the Donald doesn't feel Randal is too laid back and quiet now. He certainly spoke up when it counted!

Randal does have class. His Oxford creds provide an excellent case-in-point. His debating ability, which is directly connected to those creds, allowed him to wipe the floor with Rebecca's weak arguments as to whether she should be the Apprentice.

Would you suggest that Boyfriend Bill share the prize with Kwame? If not, why not?

A big problem in America is an unwillingness by the ruling class to play games related to wealth and privilege by one set of rules.

Randal definitely showed that he has "fire in his belly" by completely decimating his opponent. And he did this fairly and squarely without disparaging Rebecca personally. That approach provides an object lesson in what true class, preparation, and ability are.

Randal owes Rebecca nothing, and he won fairly and squarely.

The problem is with The Donald and Burnett and their efforts to destroy Randal's reputation. The biggest classless act was The Donald's only grudging acknowledgement of Randal's brilliance and ability. The second biggest classless act was Burnett's negatively editing EVERYONE who spoke up in favour of Randal.

Randal is not the problem. The Donald and Burnett are.

Period. End of Sentence.

--Singer

17. "RE: I don't believe he did it"
First of all, let me point out that the plural of "Apprentice" is not "Apprenti" but "Apprentices."

Second, from the very beginning of the season, I was a fan of Randal's. During the season, Rebecca earned alot of my respect.She stood up to "the blond bond group," showed great loyalty to not just Toral (who yes was a disaster) but also to Randal. They were quite the team and bolstered each other to the end. It became very clear that either one of them would have been great in the Trump organization.

Finally, I have been an avid watcher from the first episode of Apprentice 1 and can honestly say that there has never been a situation where the final two candidates have been so equal, so strong, and handled their final task so well. Every other season has seen someone mess up in the end.

To that end, Randal let me down and damaged the respect I had for him. So much for the nice guy image.

>Rebecca messed up by not getting a single donation, perhaps if she had, she would have been the one trump hired as the apprentice. I remember when Joe cancelled out on them Rebecca saying "who are we going to get for Yahoo" and Toral said no "it's not for Yahoo it's for Elizabeth Glaser". If she had listened she would have collected some donation and perhaps tied or surpassed Randalls donations.It's just like Randall said she loses the objective that's why her record as winning PM is so low.

114. "RE: I don't believe he did it"
First of all, "apprentices" is NOT the plural word for "apprentice". "Apprentices" is an action word or verb; and "apprentice" is a noun; "apprenti" is the correct plural of this noun; so...the RHODES SCHOLAR WAS correct in his use of the word.

Randal's educational background, communication skills and ability to effectively "manage" by delegation would make him virtually invaluable to ANY hiring Fortune 500 corporation.

Personally, Randal does not need DT to be successful, he already is...he is/was already running his own multi-million dollar company. Randal probably has no intention of staying with DT long-term, he's too brilliant for that! I'm ecstatic that Randal will have the opportunity to pimp DT rather than be pimped -- because, in the end, Randal will be the biggest winner -- another tick on his resume, solid references to bid on MORE contracts (government), free advertising for his business, and ultimately MORE REVENUE for his company!

IMO -- DT is a border-line racist, not just towards Blacks, but towards all the other minorities, i.e., Asians, Indians, etc., as well with the exception of white women. DT PURPOSELY tried to vilified him by asking him to consider the hiring of Rebecca because he did not have the b***s to go against popular opinion and hire her himself. If Randal had said yes, he would have contradicted his previous statement about her needing more experience – which to me would have been an indictment against his integrity.

Rebecca was the back-stabber when she made the statement that Randal sometimes “lacked focus”, especially when he kept her focused as she was second-guessing herself while working on the ONLY project she EVER won as a Project Manager! And, while we are talking about focus, I think she clearly lacked focus on the last project that came off as a launching party for YAHOO than an Aids fundraiser. The objective of that entire task was to RAISE money and the only money she got (not raised) was from YAHOO – who helped sponsor the event.

If many of you can stop being emotional for a minutes, realistically, Rebecca was NOT one of the BEST two in this finale. I would not have hired her – she’s an a**-kisser, which indicates to me that she would probably do ANYTHING to get ahead, regardless of whether she’s earned it or not. Alla would have been better competition for Randal, but she had too much baggage for DT. Rebecca was in the finals because of DT’s infatuation with her and not because of ability. Was it me, or did anyone else notice that she closely resembles DT’s current spouse – LOL!

Repeatedly throughout the series, Randal has been tagged the "nice guy" so much to the point that even DT questioned whether or not he had the b***s to work for him. But, when he put his foot down about not wanting to share the limelight, he’s egotistical, selfish, blah, blah, blah! Randal won the apprenticeship fair and square so why should we expect him to share this feat w/a 2nd place finisher when no one else has had to do it in the past? In all honesty, how many of you would have done it – certainly not me! Go Randal – you won fair & square!!!

176. "RE: I don't believe he did it"
I agree with 90 % of your analysis, I however believe that Rebecca was a worthy opponent and she deserved to be in the final. On any other apprentice she may have one the whole thing. She however was not in Randal's league and could not (and should not)be declared an apprentice.

Randal had to make a split decision on something he could not have foreseen. His first instinct would be to protect himself, and since DT's only question about him was his mental toughness his obvious answer would be no. I would go as far to say it was the Randal's first test by the Don.

I also thought the Don was also unfair to Randal, it was always going to be a lose/lose situation. If he wanted Rebecca so badly he could have hired her the next morning, heck, he could have made a decision right after the show. After all he is the Don.

211. "Um, you sure about this?"
"First of all, "apprentices" is NOT the plural word for "apprentice". "Apprentices" is an action word or verb; and "apprentice" is a noun; "apprenti" is the correct plural of this noun; so...the RHODES SCHOLAR WAS correct in his use of
the word.

Webster's seems to disagree with you.

ap·pren·tice (-prnts) KEY

NOUN:

One bound by legal agreement to work for another for a specific amount of time in return for instruction in a trade, art, or business.

One who is learning a trade or occupation, especially as a member of a labor union.
A beginner; a learner.

TRANSITIVE VERB:
ap·pren·ticed , ap·pren·tic·ing , ap·pren·tic·es

To place or take on as a beginner or learner.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ETYMOLOGY:
Middle English apprentis, from Old French aprentis, from Vulgar Latin *apprnditcius, from *apprnditus, alteration of Latin apprehnsus, past participle of apprehendere, to seize ; see apprehend

Where, if anywhere, does it state that apprenti is the correct plural form of apprentice?

In fact, do a dictionary.com search on the word apprenti. It doesn't come up. Why? Because it's not a word!!

Sorry, but you and the RHODES SCHOLAR have it all wrong. According to dictionary.com, the plural for Apprentice is Apprentices. Apprenti is not even a word.

Totally agree flower2!! If there was ever a tie it should've been between Bill and Kwame - that was a tough call - they were both good and people were divided. But come on - Rebecca was not even in the same league as Randal - no contest. Everyone agreed on that. Also - why should the first time an African-American wins suddenly he's forced to share the glory, and hence diminish his win? No way.

Actually, you are wrong; everyone did NOT agree that Rebecca was not in the same class as Randal. Rebecca's team stood up for her.
And what makes you think that race had anything to do with Trump asking Randal if he would hire Rebecca? There was not one single indication that this was the case. If race were an issue, why would Trump even hire Randal? He could have easily hired Rebecca if he was being racist, but he didn't. The race issue is seriously being overplayed here, because Randal WON and still people are bringing out the race card. If they wanted to slight Randal, they could have and would have. They didn't. Nor was there once any indication that they wanted to, or that race had anything to do with any decision made.

55. "RE: I don't believe he did it"
Trump was setting it up to hire them both: think of how many "rules" he broke this season, firing whole teams, groups of people, etc. Why not hire them BOTH? He made it clear how terrific they both were to him. He asked Randall because he EXPECTED him to say YES - HIRE HER, TOO - - Trump had great faith in Randall. I thought Trump looked disapointed in him for saying no. I believe he FULLY expected Randall to make the show a great surprise and let Trump hire two. It was a gracious thing to do to ask Randall. And Randall was severely ungracious. It was mean, because he held Rebecca's job in his hands - and he took it away from her. It would have been no skin off his nose to allow her that - he had NOTHING to lose and everything to gain by being magnanimous. WHAT DO YOU THINK REBECCA WOULD HAVE SAID HAD IT BEEN HER INSTEAD?...

That's because Rebecca knew he was better and she wouldn't have been sitting there in the final 2 without him! Let's face facts, she only won when Randal was on her team. Guess it's a good thing Alla ditched her as the weakest link.

I disagree! Randall is NOT the ONLY Apprentice, there were 3 others before him. And the job that would have been offered to Rebecca is NOT going to stay empty, it is going to be offered to somebody at some point. What would it have taken away from him if it were offered to Rebecca?

Lets keep in mind Trump didn't ask Randall if he should share being the apprentice or have a second apprentice. He ask Randall about hiring Rebecca. Obviously Trump wanted Randall to say yes. Randall is a complete moron for not following through as his new boss wanted him too. Talk about starting off on the wrong foot.

The reason Trump didn't hire Rebecca on the spot? Perhaps game rules...legal obligations?

Only one thing prevented Randall from saying yes...his ego. There is no other explanation.

As intelligent as Randal is, Rebecca's history is much more interesting...even if she isn't as intelligent(and we're not certain of that). Rebecca is truely one of the most amazing persona's I have ever seen.

I can't really fault him for not allowing Rebecca to be hired. That was a decision for Trump to make, not Randal. But, I was totally ROTFLMAO when Randal said "The Apprenti". Doesn't he know that the correct word is apprentices??

I was disappointed in what Randal did, given that Rebecca is a big part of the reason why he made it to the final 2 (although I'm not sure Trump would have hired them both anyway).

However, if anything he actually did her a favor because the second-placers have gone on to enjoy better success than the winners. The winners get locked into a $250K contract with all the constraints and clauses demanded by Trump and NBC, while the second-placer gets to move on to take advantage of various multi-million dollar opportunities.

I haven't posted here all season, but I was irritated enough at the end of tonight's show to log on to write.

I think it was Trump that was a jerk as well as showing an utter disregard for Randall by hiring him as The Apprentice, and then putting him on the spot by asking him if he should hire Rebecca too. WTF?? Why should Randall have to share the spotlight with her -- I loved Rebecca, but this is a job interview for ONE candidate only and Randall as the winner should reap all the rewards.

I am angry and I think it tarnished the ending of the show. Randall did not deserve to be put on the spot like that. He's trying to enjoy his moment, and Trump can't get over the hard on he's had for Rebecca all season and just let her be second. He couldn't even have the balls to make the decision himself and hire "double apprentices" -- he had to make Randall look like the bad guy.

I was so happy for Randall, and it quickly turned to embarrassment and anger that Trump had to ruin the finale this way.

THANK YOU!!

everyone is saying randal is a jerk. no he isn't! trump is the jerk! why should randal hire rebecca? let him enjoy his success. if trump wanted to hire her, he should have done so himself. now trump is the jerk, because of course all the simple minded will believe randal is one. booo trump!!

don't get me wrong i liked rebecca at first. but then it occured to me all she does is put on that fake smile. she can definetly hold her on in the board room, but that doesn't negate the fact that she had a losing record. and more importantly, she didn't raise any money!! i think it is funny trump didn't allow anyone to talk bad about the girl, i.e. not placing the lights on all the many candidates who stood up for randal, and cutting off alla.

if trump wants to hire rebecca so bad, then on the next season he should bring back everyone he feels he should have hired...troy!!

That would make Randall a jerk for agreeing to work for a jerk. Anyone can see from all of the messages here criticizing either Randall or Trump that Randall's decision harmed the reputation of both Randall and Trump. That could not be good for Randall's career as an employee of Trump. I predict that Randall will not last a full year as Trump's employee. He will probably leave for a better offer. No matter what any contract says, I am sure that Trump would let Randall out of his contract. Trump could say that Randall found a better opportunity and I did not want to stand in his way.

??????

Trump IS an egomaniac jerk. He was before all of this, but he's more of one after what he pulledlast night. However, he is a rich jerk with huge business opportunities to offer people -- just because you work for a jerk doesn't make you one too. If that's the case, half of the nation would be jerks just because of who they work under.

This show presents a good business opportunity, bottom line, and good visibility for the candidates. But as far as Trump personally, he didn't get to where he is either by being Mr. Nice Guy or Mr. I'll Share My Limelight With You.

Please.

I just needed somewhere to say that I just lost respect for Randal forty minutes ago. I had a feeling Trump might hire both, especially when they both chose different projects. As Trump had said, while for some the show is entertainment, for him it is business. I believe both candidates were worthy for different reasons. And really, who cares if they are called THE APPRENTICE or APPRENTICES. Also, I think this actually is the first season where it was actually so close. I think Randal just made himself look like a big jerk. I had a lot of respect for him until that moment. I think Rebecca, at 23 years old, shows a tremendous amount of maturity and ability. Okay, so he has five academic degrees. Yes, that is amazing, but I am so sick of hearing about it! Anyway, needed somewhere to post my opionion. Thanks!

i'll give you that about being sick of hearing his academic success (which is astonishing). but i am sick of everyone talking about her ankle. its not like it was amputated, and guess what is back working now. randal's grandmother died, but all we hear about is an ankle (that is now healed).

I have to agree with you on the ankle thing. It is true Randal's loss was surely devastating, Rebecca also had an obstacle to overcome. This is simply another parallel between the two candidates (IMHO)

I really didn't know who I would be rooting for in the end. I always liked both candidates. That was until the very end of the show. I lost all respect for Randall at the very end by how he handled himself.

Rebecca is a class-act all the way. I wish I could say the same for Randall.

It doesn't matter if he's all of these things, because now he has to be another Trump puppet, like Bill, Kelly and Kendra. He will be tied to Trump for at least a year. I've said it before, sometimes winning this stupid show is just not worth the grief.

I'm sick.
I've been a Randal fan all season and have rooted for him the whole way. While I can see he was put on the spot and had little time to think and I know it's easy to armchair quarterback, I feel betrayed and let down because I would have expected Randal to be bigger than he proved to be.

How sick was that? Randal you should have been fired on the spot. Rebecca is a threat to him, it is that simple. He was classless, and clueless. Trump blew it. I think Carloyn should have hired her on the spot..I would of loved to have seen Randal's face then. This whole night makes me sick. Not because he did not choose her, but because Trump did not make a decision and choose them both. Personally, Rebecca would have made a fine apprentice..Randal, Mr. Nice Guy? Oh please...mr clasless is more like it. Shame on you Randal. Caroyln needs to hire Rebecca..now..

Carolyn needs to hire Rebecca? Who is Carolyn to do that? She's just a woman and women aren't allowed to make decisions in the Trump organization. That's why he's so successful.

25. "RE: I don't believe he did it"
Ace you summed up exactly how my husband and I feel. We were fans of both Randall and Rebecca but were leaning towards Randall for a win. However, we both felt betrayed and totally let down by his response. He could have bowed out very gracefully, saying something like "I would love for Rebecca to work for me." That would have saved his obviously fragile ego from having to share the spotlight as she would be subordinate to him. Or he could have been the big man and just told Trump that she would also be a perfect addition to his company. There was absolutely no need to blow her off. We are as hurt as Rebecca by his response. Rebecca would not have treated him with the same disregard. Trump was also very obviously disappointed in Randall's remarks. I hope that Randall didn't lose standing with Trump for this. It would be a shame for him to lose his opportunity because he wasn't willing to be a graceful winner.

"Rebecca would not have treated him with the same disregard."

Yes, she would have, and she did when she lied in the boardroom and said that Randal lacked creativity.

At least Randal was truthful about her performance without ever attacking her personally.

The Donald was completely out of line to try and denigrate Randal with grudging comments about his performance. What topped off his belligerent behaviour was the weak attempt to try and make Randal responsible for a hiring decision that should have been his and his alone.

Trump did not want to hire Randal, but events (that would be Randal's stellar performance) prevented him from doing otherwise. What a horrible man.

Why is it assumed that Randall owes Rebecca something? He was undefeated as PM! Rebecca seems to be a nice girl, but face it they have done nothing but pacify that girl throughout the whole season!

She is the only candidate to lose 2 tasks CONSECUTIVELY and still not get fired, much less make it to the final 2! Then on the final task, she screws up again by not raising ANY money whatsoever but as usual that isnt her fault of course, that is yahoo's fault.

They have done nothing but give Rebecca free pass after free pass, then finally when Randall did more than EARN his spot to be winner he is supposed to undermine all the hard work HE accomplished to share with her? What has Rebecca done to earn this, it sounds like some posters on here want Rebecca to be given a job on a silver platter without having to work for it. Why is Rebecca ENTITLED to the job? And watching the way Rebecca went after Randall in the boardroom during HER loss, I dont believe for a minute she would gladly share the spotlight with him, nor do I even believe the question would have been asked.

Before Randall was named the Apprentice, I thought it was a toss up and I would have been happy to see either one win.

I think Randall is backstabbing phony now, not to let Rebecca share the spotlight with him, especially after we saw Randall on the tape telling Rebecca that he would choose her first to support him in any task. I have to laugh when I think of Alla saying Randall has such a big heart, you can see it in his eyes. Boy, did Randall pull the wool over her eyes, and everyone elses.

Rebecca reacted with grace and dignity when she said it was unfortunate that Randall felt that way.. She was even clapping for him afterward. She's a class act.

I hope someone offers Rebecca a much better position and more money than Randall is getting, in a much better location than sleazy Atlantic City.

Help me out jacal5,

I am obviously a Randal fan but am willing to consider another take on things. I just don't understand how he can be called a backstabber. He did nothing underhanded or behind her back. He had no obligation to hire her. Trump chose the person he thought was best. If he didn't think she should have been hired, why should Randal? That too, could have been viewed as a total disregard for his new boss' opinion, couldn't it?

If I'm missing a point here, please help me understand.

I still don't get it because Randal owed her nothing. If Trump gave Randal the authority to hire Rebecca or not, he also gave him the opportunity to do what he thought was best. Why would he hire her? She lost every task, except the one Randal handed her on a silver platter.

For those that think she was such a great leader--leading her team to what? DEFEAT!!! That's all she accomplished the entire time, including the final task. Trump would have been a fool to allow Randal to hire her. She hosted a charity event that garnered $0.00. Yeah, great leader. I'm sure Trump would love to have her run his casinos and not make any money!

I was a Randal fan as well. I was on board with him and believed he was the obvious choice from week 1. He clearly outclassed all the compitition week in and week out.

I didn't believe Rebecca had a chance until two weeks ago. I wonder how much of America gasped when Rebecca pinned his ears back in front of George & Carolyn when they were negotiating over who would join their teams. She impressed me then and you could tell by the look on Randal's face that she had knocked him off his game. Even Carolyn lost her poker face and seemed pleasantly surprised.

Fast forward to the end of tonight's show. Randal won. He had nothing left to prove. Trump deferred to him in the decision to hire Rebecca. By doing so Trump made it plain that she would be joining them in a subordinate postion. Randal had nothing to lose in bringing her on board since it would be him in essence hiring her. The only way he could lose would be to do what he did.

He made himself small to feed his own ego.


Sad....so very very sad.

Let's look at it this way. You're on a reality show where the reward is a big beautiful house, and you have to persevere at all sorts of house-related tasks in order to win. In the end, it comes down to you and someone else you (profess to) respect and admire. You win the house.

The producers come to you and say, "This other person worked really hard as well. You got along well. What would you think if we gave them a house, too?"

Do you struggle and say, "But NO! If you give them a house people might look at their house along with mine instead of only looking at mine! I'll lose some attention! Don't you dare give them a house!" Or do you say, "That would be so awesome for my friend! They were a really hard worker and I'm so thankful they get a great house too!"

What skin is it off your back? And what a true test of character. When the chance to help someone else comes along, you say "absolutely not."

That's why a lot of us lost respect.

32. "RE: I don't believe he did it"
To those of you who say you lost respect I see and understand your point, but I do believe it's a knee-jerk reaction. Lots of victories are decided by very close margins, but this is America and we love to win, love to be the winner and better yet, we love to hate the winner. So I pose the question(s):

In the winner's circle do you ask Jeff Gordon to share his win with Kurt Busch?

On election night, do you ask George Bush to let's say, make John Kerry his VP? Or better yet, Al Gore...after all he did win the popular vote, right?

Serena and Venus are sisters and I don't think they would share the Wimbledon title...you think?

Oscar winners are always saying how they want to thank their fellow actors, etc. how many do you think would really share the spotlight if put on the spot?

All that to say, congrats to Rebecca and Randal, but the better man won. It's pretty arrogant to think that you can judge someone's character from a 30-second spot. At any rate, they'll both go on to great things in life and those of you who are bothered by why/how Randal won will get over it, if not, well...good luck with that.

My daughter is in competitive gymnastics and is sometimes put into a tie situation with another girl. I can honestly say that she handles it gracefully by shaking the child's hand. Never once does she share her accomplishment without mentioning that it was a tie (even when it has been for first). How is it that an eight year old can share the limelight with such joy but a respected man like Randal cannot? It sounds to me as though Randal needs lessons in humility as well as humanity.

This was not remotely a tie situation, so the comparison does not stand. Randal out-distanced Rebecca by $11,000 in the fundraiser.

It may bother some to admit this when it is inconvenient, but playing a game by one set of rules is a touchstone of our American democracy.

If one pays attention to the current state of our country, it provides an object lesson in what happens when rules of merit and fair play do not govern how leaders are chosen.

I am really shocked with how many people think that Randall is the classless one for not wanting to share the Apprentice spotlight!!

It's Trump who has no class! Why didn't he do a double hire if he wanted them both so bad!! No other Apprentice been asked to do this before, yet Randall is a jerk for not wanting to instantly share the spotlight after a long, well-fought season??

It would have been nice if Trump had given him more than 20 freaking seconds to enjoy being the Apprentice. Now Randall has to live down Donald's ball-less performance tonight.

Randall wouldn't have to live down Donald's ball-less performance if he agreed to hire Rebecca. Randall could have rose to the occasion and proven himself to be a better man than Trump, but his ego got in the way.

It seems most of the people on this message board are disappointed in Randall. I wonder how anyone can work for him or with him after viewing this show. I would never trust him as a peer or a boss.

I think DT did what he was criticizing Randal about. The fact that Randal didn't have a Plan B incase it rained on his event during the final task. I really think DT thought when he posed the question to Randal "Would you also hire Rebecca?" that Randal's answer would be YES. I don't thing DT ever thought he'd say NO.

Randal already WON. Had he'd said YES or NO he was still the winner. Had he'd said YES, who would have critiqued him at all for giving another person a chance? But by saying NO he proved Rebecca's point of him not being able to focus on the "big picture."

I think he screwed up in a bad way. Especially after the other contestant said "He had a big heart." That's not a big heart to me.

I really was hoping both would win because I thought they both deserved it. But now, I'm sorry Randal won.

I always said Randall would win because he is a man, a tall man, and a black man.

Little Rebecca would have been long gone if she had done a few
of the things Randall did:

l. Put the WRONG RADIO STATION on the client presentation!!
2. Tell her ENTIRE TEAM of four to go shopping in the same store for stuff when there were other jobs to do.
3. Have no Plan B.

Rebecca knew she had to be tougher than Randall because she
is a woman, a small person, and a white person. And she
was tougher.

Trump only picked Randall because he won the popularity contest.
That doesn't give him the common sense he lacks.

And how selfish was he at the end???

This is unbelievable. SHE DID NOT WIN!! Plain and simple. Randal was not under any obligation to carry her across the victory line. I guess this winter when the Olympics come around and the second place guy loses by mere seconds, everyone will ask the Gold Medalist how would he feel if they stamped out another Gold Medal, because the second place person tired so darn hard!!

Randal does not lack class. Trump does for sure. I'm sure Randal has heard his entire life it's not enough to be as good as everyone else, you must be better just to get what you deserve. And here we have a second place person who was good in her own right, not superior, but could hold her own and finished an honorable second. We have Randal who has left her in the dust during the entire competition and pervailed in the final challenge being asked to share the glory with someone who, in the end, did not measure up. What kind of message does that send? Still after all of his accomplishment and academic success, he's told she's his equal. I don't balme him one bit. He beat her and deserves to be recognized as the winner of The Apprentice. Hands down.

Of course, you're right Realityshowgeek.

It is interesting, but not surprising, that some complaining about Randal's clear win refuse to address his win-loss record. They also have no interest in a rules-oriented process.

Thank goodness for social contracts and constitutions and rules-of-law, or we would all be back in the state of nature fighting each other for scraps of food.

As things stand, we have almost deteriorated to that position in this country precisely because of a propensity by some to ignore or re-write rules when it suits their purposes.

God, I love our constitution.

Singer,
I liked both Randall and Rebecca. I knew from the beginning of this season that Randal would win, for the simple fact that no one paralleled his education. Unless, he made some major blunders (which he didnt), I knew he would win. But, inspite of his undefeated track record, Randal did some silly mistakes. Why aren't any of the Randal supporters addressing these mistakes in an objective manner?

1. Randall chose to take his entire team to a party store to buy party supplies. Don't you think this was a poor way to manage his resources, especially when Mark was scheduled to have a meeting with the radio DJ?

2. The groundskeeper questioned Randall about not setting up enough tents just in case it rained. Granted, Randall had checked the weather, but don't you think he should have played it safe? What harm would have done to set up additional tents specially if you have someone advising you to do it?

3. Randall had no plan B in the event of rain. He put all of his eggs in one basket. He showed great creativity by setting up a plan B from scratch. However, not having a plan B from the get-go shows poor planning and poor organizational skills.

I do think that Randal was the most qualified man for the job, based on his education, but he was not flawless. I would really appreciated it if you or any of the other Randall supporters could address the points I've raised about Randall's decisions during the final task.

HA, that was the most ignorant statement I've heard all day. What do you know about the typical Black Man? What is that? That was very stereotypical! If he has chips on his shoulder, then thank GOD for them cause like it or not he's the winner. People are acting so hurt, please. Get over it, he lost your respect, he doesn't know you---so who cares! Things happen the way that they are supposed to, and perhaps Rebecca was not meant for that job. Maybe it was meant for her to encounter other opportunities because last nights occurrences. What ever the case she seems quite content with her life now and that is what is important. The real jerk most of you blind people are forgetting to mention is Mr. Trump himself! He chooses to take Randall's very special moment and turn it into a mess. Why would you put Randall in that position. Your run your company you make your own choice. That was gutless and tactless! If the tables were turned I'm not sure that half of you would be singing the same tune.

39. "RE: I don't believe he did it"

I LOVED IT!!!!

Watchd Felisha and Alla going crazy in the background shaking their heads, "NO, NO, NO!!!!!!"

It was a complete insult to Randal to even suggest hiring that worthless little piece of s!!t Becky. She didn't belong in the finals and was totally useless as a leader. Her team came up with all the ideas and did all the work for her and she still screwed things up. SHE RAISED NO MONEY AT A CHARITY EVENT!!!!

Good for you Randal! You grew a pair and finally stood up to someone who I have no doubt will be Trumps umpteenth wife.

It's unbelievable that Rebecca would stab Randal in the back again after Randal gave her that win. That chick has no class whatsoever, but after looking at her family (they're all ugly as he!! Why do some people breed?), I don't believe she can help it.

It would have been such a better final had Alla been in it. I would have loved to see how she handled that charity event and how much money she would have collected in her g-string ... I mean, raised at the end of the evening!

Good on ya Randal! Ya made me proud not being a doormat. And Alla, what can I say, I love you!

There's a very interesting article at MSNBC. "Apprentice’ winner refuses to share title." "Randal and Rebecca seemed to respect and appreciate each other during the season, which made Randal's finale selfishness all the more baffling." There are subheadings such as "selfish when he could have been selfless", and "losing respect for Randal".

It doesn't look good for Randal.

51. "I think not"
I think that there could have been another way for him to word it, but the fact is the show was designed for Donald to find AN APPRENTICE (SINGULAR). As many others have said, if he wanted to hire them both, then as the boss, he should have done it.

Having watched the entire season, Randall was the clear winner. It wasn't even close. Rebecca is definitely well-spoken but she couldn't win, until it was just her and Randall on a team together. The editors spent so much time making us think that Randall wasn't focusing enough on his charity when it was Rebecca who didn't focus on the charity at all.

She raised $0 for her charity and THAT was the ENTIRE last task. For him to even consider hiring her after that was a joke especially after they showed the clip of him firing 4 candidates for EXACTLY the same thing.

I would have liked to see Randall phrase things a bit differently but I dont fault him ONE BIT for reminding Trump that it was his concept of a single apprentice.

Trump can still hire Rebecca anytime he wants but after making them prove and fight all night over which ONE of them should be the apprentice, it was simply wrong for him to ask Randall to hire Rebecca also.

That's right , you're fired..get out already

if you think of it as trump asking randal's advice in his first action as the newest apprentice, randal proved himself to place his ego above his business judgment

if rebecca is so good and strong as a leader, as randall consistently attested to, THROUGHOUT, then good business sense would have required randal to advise trump to utilize rebecca's talents

instead, RANDAL'S EGO SUPERCEDED HIS JUDGMENT

let's hope there are no cameras around when randal has to make other judgments which could potentially affect his ego

Interesting....as I saw it, Rebecca's sponsor (Yahoo) donated 100K...about 10 times the crappy 11K that Randall's event generated...Heck....she generated 5 times as much money for Randall's charity as he did!

No, Yahoo donated the money and then specified that it be divided among both charities...As I remember correctly, Yahoo was the one who sponsored the fundraiser by Rebecca and only step up when no money was raised because they made the mistake of saying not to ask the attendees for donations straightout...So, technically, Rebecca did not raise money for her charity...It was given at the last moment...And if you add what Yahoo donated the final outcome would be Randall-$61,000 and Rebecca- $50,000...So the winner would be...let me quess...
RANDAL.

"It doesn't look good for Randal."

Tarmaq, Randal's a millionaire, so it doesn't matter what the press says.

Bottom line: Hiring is Trump's responsibility. He made himself look stupid by trying to change the rules of the game at the last minute. Trump clearly had a preference against treating Randal fairly. Figures.

Randall embarrassed Rebecca in front of 30 million people. In doing so, he brought shame to himself. If he would have supported Rebecca in being hired, he not only could have been the hero, but he might have gone down as the best apprentice of all time. But he showed a downfall of every great leader......ego and pride. Now we all know it. He will never live this down and he will be remembered for this one big blunder. I lost all respect for him.

Randal is jerk!!!! Both Rebecca and Randal were great candidates and were pretty equal. After last night, I would not ever work for Randal. You can't trust him and I think he is too laid back. Hell, every task Randal served as a project manager, you couldn't tell he was the leader. He just sat back and watched and let things happen.

I know this show is finding one Apprentice but I have never seen candidates so equal and both would have been great. DT should never had put Randal on the spot, but Randal stabbed Rebecca in the back, plain and simple. You just don't treat people that way. You can argue business is business, but Randal always stated over and over how impressed he was with Rebecca. It just proves Randal knew Rebecca was better than he was and didn't want the competition.

What a pompous, self centered jerk.

"I know this show is finding one Apprentice but I have never seen candidates so equal..."

Rebecca had a PM record of 2-1, the one win she did get it was on a 2 person team with RANDALL, so he won it for her.

Then on the final task she fails to raise money for a CHARITY!

On the other hand, Randall is undefeated as PM 3-0, and he won the final task, yet they are "equal" please explain this to me?

Some posters feel like after Randall more than beat Rebecca in the boardroom he should then SHARE the spotlight with her? Why? She didnt earn it, so why do you think she is entitled to the job IN SPITE OF HER LOSSES? That is the question I have for this board.

Randal is a jerk. It was a very bad decision on his part. He was picked as the winner and that was not enough for him.

One thing Randal forgets is that Trump is the boss. Randal should've said...Mr Trump you are the boss and you own all these business's and if you feel you would like Rebecca to work for you that it is your perogative. Instead he made Trump look like a j.ck.##### on national tv....his boss!

Look if Trump wants to hire Rebecca or all 16 contestents it is his business. He picked a winner...Randal. Randal got what he wanted. It was a very selfish and dumb decision by Randal and tells me that he picked the wrong person regardless of track record/experience.

To me, it was obvisious that Randal had more education and experience than Rebecca. His record as a project manager was better too. But Trump saw something he really liked about Rebecca. As a 23 year old she possess's some outstanding qualities. When she is Say Randal's age she will be something truly outstanding.....Trump sees that and although she lost the competition Trump obvisiously really wanted her on his side.

Randal should've been.....a company guy....not a me guy. Seriously if you were Trump would you want a me guy or a company guy? Regardless of whether Randal outperformed Rebecca in the tasks.....to me he made the wrong decision.

Well I've been watching since season one also and Trump DIDN'T hire more than one person. He hired one, Randall.

It's not also the first season that there have been multiple firings as some have tried to insinuate.

The call to hire more than one person was Trumps and Trumps alone. If he wanted to hire both, he should have hired both. Instead, he asked Randall for his opinion because he supposedly valued it so much and Randall said he didn't think there should be two apprentices period.

Trump can still do whatever he wishes but if he wanted to hire both, he should have.

That's right , you're fired..get out already

But he did not hire more than one. He hired one. Randall. If he really wanted to hire her, he would have. Trump has proved time and time again that he does what he wants.

This is not season one. While he may have said that then, he did not do it last night. He hired one, the one who won, the one with the best record, the one who did not fail on two projects back to back. He hired the person who won on all accounts. Plain and simple, if he thought that she should be there with Randall, he would have said, you are both hired. But because he didn't, everyone is blaming Randall for being shallow, instead of blaming Trump for doing what they think should have been done.

I agree with everyone who has said that Randall showed his true colors. So funny that he said Apprenti rather than Apprentices...so much for the Rhodes scholar. I hope he's embarassed. I'm embarassed for him.

And, Trump wasn't asking him to dilute his status as the Apprentice, as the winner, anyway, but only whether or not he thought Rebecca should be thrown a bone, basically. A kind gesture, a gentlemanly gesture. But no! Unlike what Trump said, that to him this is more an interview process than a reality show, Randall had to be small and guard his victory. Mine, mine, mine. I wonder who else he has stepped on on his way up.

I was so completely disgusted with Randall's decision, that the whole season has became null and void in my mind! There have been many surprises in this season, including firing of more than one person in the boardroom, so why is there an incredible need to have only one "Apprentice"? Randall was nothing more than an egotistical, selfish individual who didn't want to share. If this is what Donald Trump wants to teach the business school community, I'm glad I'm retired!

82. "RE: I don't believe he did it"
Randal did the ABSOLUTE correct thing. He won the competition. Trump is the boss - he pointed that out while lecturing Rebecca for not meeting him at his car. He makes the decisions. He didn't consult to fire two and four at a time, so why now should Randal be put in the position of choosing whether or not to hire Rebecca.

As for people being "tired of hearing about Randal's academic success", obviously they don't have very much academic success themselves. He is an intelligent guy and he doesn't just have papers and distinctions, he has common sense and good business sense. Also what's being ignored is his experience. Rebecca is 23 years old. She's probably been working professionally for about 2 years - if that long. Randal has over 10 years of experience. They aren't even on the same level. The better candidate won and to suggest that he somehow is selfish because he has the courage to acknowledge that he won is silly.

No one is stopping Trump from hiring Rebecca. He can hire her whenever he wants to.

Also, it is very naive for people to say "if Trump was a racist he wouldn't have hired Randal". Racisim is not always stupid. (Quite often it is, but not always.) Minorities, specifically blacks, are often put in situations where they can be set up to fail only so a hiring manager or management won't appear racist. I'm not saying Randal is being set up to fail, I think he'll do a great job, but the fact that he was hired doesn't erase Trump's racist behavior.

I'm a 10 year experienced CPA. I would not dream of suggesting that I share my job with someone 2 years out of school. It even sounds silly. It sounds as silly as asking Randal should we also hire Rebecca.

Who was asking him to share his job? He had the big job no matter what. This was a test of his humanity.

The best businessmen/women are those who have their humanity well intact. Otherwise you could say Sadam Hussein was a fabulous businessman. He got his way when he was running Iraq, didn't he? Is that the bottom line?

As far as those stating that Rebecca was too young to even be considered, etc, etc, anyone who was in the running could have been picked. Trump isn't hiring someone to run his company, he's giving someone a chance to learn from him. That's what an apprentice is.

make no mistake - CEO of huge fortune 500 companies which usually have cut throat mentality (i worked for one) would hire Randall. He's nice but not soft and has a good balance between being professional and friendly.
When you are friendly and too nice in business people might like you, find you likeable and even hang out with you after work (happy hour)but when it comes to promotions and other business related issues, you are in the back burner.

182. "RE: I don't believe he did it"
Has anyone here looked at Randal's resume or his company bctpartners.com website?

He really has 1 year of work experience (Lucent, 97-98, what happened?).
In 1997 he said he founded a company (what happened to it?)
In 2000 he said he co-founded another (what happened to it?)
In 2001 he founded another, bct partners.

What is bct partners? The company profile is chock full of the usual PC buzzwords, e.g. minority-owned, diversity program, minority supplier, disadvantaged business etc. Translation: they feed at the government quota and minority set aside trough.

As far as education, he has 5 degrees, but few if any real employers would consider that a plus. It indicates a lack of focus. With a PHD from MIT comes huge expectations from any potential employer. He appears to have been proceeding toward a carreer as an engineer, but the fact that he left Lucent after 1 year raises questions about his ability to succeed in high tech. Now he has decided to jump once again. This time into Trumps world of real estate development, something that has no relation to his background.

96. "RE: I don't believe he did it"
I was surprised at Randall's decision, but that was a bit unfair to put him on the spot like that. Asking him in private after he's had time to come down from the excitement of winning is one thing, but right there in front of the whole audience and on national t.v. wasn't very cool. It was a quick reaction on Randall's part and he may have regretted his decision soon after, but he shouldn't have been put in that position.

Also, I have watched a majority of the shows these 4 seasons and The Donald doesn't always make decisions that make sense. Many appear fairly abitrary. He seems to have gotten better, but his rationales haven't aways been very consistent from week to week. One week the PM gets fired for not being a good leader, the next week some lackey gets fired for not being able to be led. From my perspective it seems hard to figure out what will make the big guy happy. With that said, it would not have surprised me in the least if Randall had said "Yes, you should also hire Rebecca" followed by The Donald saying "You weak kneed ninny, you aren't tough enough for New York or Atlantic City. Randall, you're fired. Rebecca, you're hired." It would be classis Donald.

Trump acts like a little kid with his decisions. Seems prudent to tread lightly.

I wonder if he really was on the spot. After all, there was conjecture here about it... so maybe Randal heard it too, over the past couple of months? Plus this morning on Today he re-iterated using the same words, rather than clean it up. I think that WAS his rehearsed response.

If your child were in a competition and clearly won. He or she worked very hard. The winning prize is 50 bucks. Then it is announced that he has to give half his prize to the runner up and he is not declared as the sole winner. How would you feel? How would your child feel? Would it diminish his or her win?

This is clearly an uneven comparison. To make it more even, perhaps you should state that your child, who won fifty bucks, would retain that fifty bucks. Period. He also had the opportunity to hand fifty or forty or whatever additional bucks of someone else's money over to the next child, who also worked very hard. Your child retains his fifty bucks and the cachet of having won it in the first place.

What will your child do? Try to do unto others has he would have them do unto him? Or begrudge and deny someone he claimed to respect a prize as well?

I pray that my children will look out for others as well as themselves.

My daughter is in a math competition. She is one of 15 children chosen to compete for a place on the math team. This is her first year and it is unlikely that she will get a spot. She does not have to begrudge anyone their spot on the team. Next year she will be more prepared and she will value what she has accomplished even more. I do not want them to make it easy for her and give her a spot. I want her to earn her spot.

There is a place you can go if you are looking for a place where nobody is supposed to stand out. Its called communism!

113. "RE: I don't believe he did it"
I've never read so much silliness in my life. I wasn't going to say anything at all here, but this is so ridiculous I just have to step in and say something.

I have serious doubts that Trump's stupid little stunt last night was anything other than a stunt. He's desperate to try anything to make this show hot again and he thought putting Randal on the spot would do the trick. Sorry, Donald, that worked about as well as your combover.

I also have serious doubts as to whether anyone here criticizing Randal would do the same in his situation. Real easy to sit in your easy chair and say, yes! let me show you how little I actually understand what it means to work in the cut throat New York real estate business by being a fluffy bunny to my competition instead of the shark that is required in that position. I'm sure you all, after a fierce battle over a series of exhausting weeks and then months of waiting, would in any way, shape, or form basically admit that Trump had made the wrong choice when he chose you. *rolls eyes* Because that is really what you were expecting Randal to do. You wanted Randal to admit that Rebecca was just a good as him. He pointedly iterated why she wasn't as good as he. And he was right.

I certainly would not hire Rebecca after her final task. It was a complete and miserable failure. Not only did she not do what Trump told them to do (make both clients happy), but she even made the one that was originally pleased look like unfeeling idiots. Even months later, not one cent was raised by her event for pediatric AIDS. She was a complete and utter failure.

This was a contest, people, about BUSINESS. The point of the contest is not who is the nicest person. It's who is the best business person. Patently, Randal was.


I'm such a slut for the blues.

well said. it is so easy to act and sound so noble on the boards. you would think all these people talking are really great, magnificent and classy people in their everyday lifes. This was a business competition. For one winner. It is different if Trump wanted Randall to hire ebecca to work for him but would trump have offered her the other New Jersey project? In that case we would be having two apprentices. That will not even be respectful of the other candidates who were fighting for that one position. Let trump hire her later but don't tell Randall to do it. If so, the final task was useless and the whole game was useless and we might as well not have the apprentice. what is the theme? - people from around the U.S competiting to become 'the apprentice'. Anyone here that would take rebecca because of niceness wouldn't work for me. So what if my competition was nice and sweet and smart, in my opinion you wouldn't give me the confidence that you would be aggressive enough to make the right decisions for my company as you are emotional.

I'm sorry that you feel I am ridiculing your interest in this topic. I sincerely didn't mean to do that and I think, since I read and responded to the topic, that it's perfectly reasonable to be interested in this.

However, all the self-righteousness being directed at Randal is over the top and completely overblown considering the nature of this contest. Randal did what any person who wants to be successful at business should do: beat the competition with no qualms about their feelings. That's business. That's why he deserved to win.

Maybe we like being over-the-top. I'm sure I do. What the heck, we all have pressing issues and Lord knows our country does too. I am having fun blowing off steam about this.

So, to continue, shouldn't it have been enough to win? Did he have to crush the opposition too? I see him as no better than Alla for doing that.

(because I know you're all just waiting for my opinion)

I think... that perhaps it was the underdog position that Rebecca was in which had some folks rooting so passionately for her to be hired. Who doesn't root for an underdog from time to time?

Isn't it possible that Randal is being treated unfairly because America was waiting with baited breath to find a flaw in him? I think that regardless of what Randal had done or said last night, he would have received this unfair backlash.

Think about it, if he were to say, "Mr. Trump? I think you should hire Rebecca!" than today we would be discussing how weak and soft he was, and how he (who is miles above Rebecca in education, experience and fit for the company, IMO) admitted she was just as good as him.

...and honestly, if it were me? I would have very likely done the same thing as Randal!

We, or at least I'm not blaming Randal for winning the apprenticeship. He WON. Congratulations. He's the Apprentice.

Now then, he's got the job, he's got the glory and he's Trump's chosen one; Randal now has the opportunity to give another hard working individual a chance to work for the company. If Randal had told Mr. Trump to hire Rebecca, SHE would not be the Apprentice. Ever. But she'd have a job, and you could tell that Donald was eager to hire.

But for some reason, he denied her from having a job. Heck, she could even have worked under Randal or be HIS Apprentice. Instead, he was the glory hound who thought everything was just 'me me me'. Trump wasn't planning on having them both share the glory of being the Apprentice, but gave Randal the opportunity to hire someone who he's worked closely with and who was a great contender for the Apprentice title. I really think that the night should have ended better. It was quite disappointing, coming from someone who I thought was a great guy, like Randal.

So how was dinner with Donald last night? I'm assuming he must have told you this personally because he sure didn't give ANY indication of what he was going to do last night. Unless you've spoken to him since last night, we dont know what Trump would have done if Randall had said yes. From the setup of the show, it certainly would appear that he was going to give them equal positions which certainly doesn't appear fair to me. But again , that's my opinion and my opinion and your's dont have to agree.

Well, dinner was fine though I don't think it's fun to spend the night chatting it up with someone's ego (and hair!).

Aside from that, Trump could have done a double hire himself, but no. He chose Randal as his Apprentice. Randal had already won, though through out the night -- and perhaps through the season -- you could see that Donald Trump felt that Rebecca was a great contestant as well.

And yes, we all see things differently. I wasn't rooting for either contestant, but really thought that Randal deserved the win.

Everyone is getting tv reality confused with "real" reality. The "real" reality is, Donald Trump has the authority to hire who he wants to hire. He's the boss, remember? Once the cameras are off, I'm sure he could very easily hire Rebecca tomorrow if he really wanted to.

It's too bad Randall, who was beloved by all his castmates, is now being depicted as the scum of the earth by some people simply b/c he looked out for his own best interest and not Rebecca's. As far as runner-ups go, Kwame and Jennifer Massey were both more qualified than Rebecca but they weren't given the opportunity to be co-winners.

Asking Randall if he'd like to share the title of the Apprentice is simply and out of line question to ask. Now he's unjustly one of the most hated Apprentice winners ever.

What about "diversity" in Randal's workplace? Notice the clip of Randal's "multi-million" dollar corporation. All African American "associates". Not a single Hispanic, Caucasian, Asian or other ethnic group were shown in the clip.

So what? Maybe they taped a meeting he was having with an African American group.

You all who are bashing Randall are simply amazing. What's even more amazing is tyou can't even see it.

Funny, but it it were a table of all-white people and Randall was white, no one would think THAT was strange, huh? Funny how that works.

You don't know anything about the rest of his employees, or even if the black people shown were employees or not. Some probably were clients.

Don't hire her?

He said " Not tonight"

which means do what you want Mr Trump. But tonight is my night.

By the way did anyone else notice he didn't ask Randal to come sit on the other side of the table with him, like he has with all the other aprenti?

Come in a stranger,leave a little stranger

Randal had stated numerous times during the live board room that he thought Rebecca had not had enough experience to do the job required of the Apprentice. How could he maintain credibility and say "Sure go ahead and hire her too. Forget everything I just said about her not having the experience needed to do the job."

The fire in the belly he showed when responding to Trump is the same kind of intensity in many conversation heard in boardrooms, on the market floor, and certainly the same energy I've ever had in closing a sales deal.

Selfish? Wanting the spotlight? Give me a break. The man showed he had a spine--good for him.

Remember: It's not personal, its just business.

Let me tell you if Randal were as smart as he thinks and as good a leader as he thinks, he would have recognized the opportunity to add a young, vibrant, sharp energetic member to the Trump team. One whom Trump (and Carolyn) just spent an hour raving about. But it's all about Randal, isn't it? That's pitiful leadership if you ask me.

And from the perspective of his having the ability to reach out and improve another human being's life, to give somebody a hand up, he failed there too.

Randal's a loser.

Improve whose life? Rebecca's? Ha!

History has shown that The Apprentice second-placers (and even down to the final 7 or 8) go on to make more money than the Apprentice himself. They can take all sorts of endorsements, speaking engagements, TV appearances and high-end consulting gigs that the Apprentice isn't free to take because of the tight contract with Trump and NBC.

Rebecca already has an offer for $150K/year, and more will come. Placing second and having Randal decide against hiring her is the best thing that happened to her.

Haven't posted since the end of Big Brother 6, but could not sleep tonight without puttin in my million cents!

Randall won the competition, SO why is everyone so upSet because he didn't share the glory with someone else? This has never happen before, so why should he be the first to diminisH his win by sharing it with the second place candidate. Like someone said earlier, Bush didn't want to sahre his controversial win with Gore or Kerry. Even the Donalds wife indicated that the winner of Ms World contest isn't going to share it with the runner-up even the second place finisher looks better or is smarter.
(I loved the Clay-Ruben comparison)

Trump cause this issue/argument by calling Randall back to the table in the middle of his celebration and literally telling him "Hey Randall you are not really that good, I think Rebecca should be hired too, what do you think about that? What was Randall to say"Yassuh Master Trump yous' right, she is as good as me and you shoud hire huh too."

As someone said, Randall was caught in a lose-lose situation as whatever his response would have been as some would have accused him to being a weakling and bowing down to Trump in his first duty after being hired. If Trump wanted to hire both of them, he should have said it up front "You're both hired" to eliminate this controversy. Now Randall who clearly won and was the overwheling favorite has to hide out in an a nondeserved shame until this blows over.

Rebecca would have got a job in the Trump org later anyway, so why tarnish Randalls victory by setting him up to be hero, jerk or sellout..
