"Bethanny, what was she thinking....."
the whole episode from last night shows she never should've made it this far in the first place. First off, she lets Dawna pick her three people first. Whether you want those people or not is immaterial you don't let her get them because in the end she will have the team she wants and you are computing against her.

Then Bethanny picks her team and takes someone like Carrie....who hated her. If Bethanny wanted to get people that would work hard for her she should've taken people that were fired early on in the process.....they had something to prove. Why not Shawnna or Jennifer? Jim was an ok pick, but I would not of taken Ryan or Carrie.

Then she gets so focused on the fundraising aspect that she totally ignores the event portion of the task. I am sure things will get much better as witnessed by the clips of the circus performing next week, but still she was a total mess.

How did this woman make it this far?????

Remember she knows Charles before the interview, right?

How?

Jim.

Poor Jim. His creature survived the penultimate elimination when he did not. Bethany is a good foot soldier - she has energy and when directed on a nonconceptual task performed well. But she was always Jim's sidekick.

Great editing, though. They're making both contestants look like they are in trouble. It creates a lot of good suspense.

I'd still rather have seen more Martha-y tasks. And her cutaway voice-overs are embarrassing. I wonder if the production crew was too scared to coach her to do those in a more realistic way, or if she's so mean they just let her flounder.

Did you watch Wickedly Perfect? That was the real Martha show, and had she been on it in stead of Joan Lunden, and had they let her really be Martha (a little patronizing, a little cold, a little severe, a little dominatrix) it might have really worked.

I love watching people do Martha Stewart-type crafty things. Although I personally have never, ever, hot-glued a single cranberry to a styrofoam wreath mold.

I don't understand why Bethanny chose a woman who hates her! I would have taken Leslie (was that her name, The PM for the Buick task?) and the guy who was sent home the first week. Now she has this woman who's behvaing like a teenage girl, working against her. For that reason alone I wouldn't hire Bethanny because she has poor decision making skills.

I would love to see the behind the scens footage of the final tasks for both shows becuase I can not believe that four people competing on a television show, can actually pull off these major functions in a matter of a few days. I'd like to see how much help they really have from outside sources.

As pointed out, she knows Charles. But she also is proving that DeNial is not just a river in Egypt. Remember when she said SHE is the one that has come up with two big ideas? Huh?

Let's see, this last task they had to film a commercial. And SHE came up with the idea about ... FOOD! THAT was her idea and what she relayed to the Song execs! Remember how they were gushing that they noticed the food they were serving? And highlighting it? Well, did anyone actually watch the commercial? There was no mention of food in it!!! There were a series of vignettes and the highlighting of the price. And who was responsible? JIM!!!

http://tv.zap2it.com/tveditorial/tve_main/1,1002,271%7C98990%7C1%7C,00.html

So Bethenny didn't come up with the winning idea at all, but somehow she deluded herself into thinking she did. Was she perhaps the one imbibing?

And Jim is such an idiot. With all his talent, he could have swept this competition.

Too bad he was involved in playing games and being a puppet master. What a jerk.

And I agree that this entire show should have been focused on Martha-like tasks, like trimming a Christmas tree in a new and different way, or having to decorate a room with handmade Halloween decorations.
