"As for him picking Gabe, that was my only disappointment. After Gabe turned his back on him twice, it made no sense for Shawn to reward him for his disloyalty. He should have picked Sarah - unless he was 'told' they had something else in mind for her - or Heather or even Candida. I was floored by the Gabe pick."
Maybe Gabe's middle name is Judas?
"The problems with this show have been discussed and documented here before, but this really could be a GREAT show with a couple of little tweaks - especially in the areas of editing and the challenges."
Only problem is that this seems like a one-time deal type thing. Because Branson is a human as opposed to the Donald who is a machine, I can see him giving control of one venture to someone but going through all of this again for the sake of tv or popularity just doesnt seem to be his style. He looked totally anguished over the decisions he had to make in eliminating people and that definitely brought something special to the show that none of the others have.
