The Apprentice LA: Season Premiere

Now that The Apprentice has started airing, I’ll be writing recaps of the episodes for Reality Fan Forum, just like I did for The Amazing Race. The first one is online now. And although I had vowed that these recaps wouldn’t be as long or as in-depth as the ones I do for TAR, this first one ended up pretty wordy anyway. Oh well.

Anyway, I want to start out by talking about The Hair. I know, talking about Donald Trump’s hair is so 2004. But Donald himself so 2004, so it’s appropriate, right? Anyway, I just want to get this out of the way up front. I know all the jokes about Trump back then were about his hair, and how it looks like a bad rug. But you know what? I think it’s real. I think it’s 100% his own, and I think that the fact that it’s real is far funnier than thinking it’s a piece, because if it’s real that means that in the whole nest of sycophants, kissups and brownnosers that is the Trump Organization, there isn’t one person brave enough to peep up and say, “Hey, Don, your hair looks like ass.” And it also means that, at some point in the past, Donald Trump walked into his stylist’s salon, pulled out a copy of National Geographic, pointed to a picture of a Golden-bellied Mangabey, and said, “Like that.” And the stylist said okay! So The Hair is kind of emblematic of the whole hot mess that is Donald Trump’s life and existence, and I for one am glad it’s there, because The Donald without The Hair just wouldn’t be The Donald, right?

Go read it all.
