The Apprentice LA Episode 3: You Can’t Fire Me, I Quit

My latest recap of The Apprentice is now up at

James takes one of the tours with the specific mission of finding out what the tourists are dissatisfied with, so they can try to make the experience better. Smart cookie, that one. And what does James learn on the tour? It’s hot, the people are thirsty, and the tour operator is some kind of out-of-work comic who’s just glad he has a captive audience. The tourists seriously look like they’re ready to bolt at the next red light when this guy starts talking about his ruptured spleen. It’s embarrassing for the whole city, but it’s also true to life. You go to LA thinking you’re going to see movie stars, and all you end up seeing is this guy. Everywhere you go. Imagine a 24-hour American Idol audition, and that’s what Hollywood is like.

Go read it all.
