'The Apprentice' recap: Jingle Hell
Before the survivors return, Aubrey not only jumps up and down about her own win, but takes credit for everybody else's wins as well. "Whether you like me or hate me," she squeaks to the camera, "I'm the only reason we ever have had a creative on this team." INDEED, Aubrey, and after a season-long effort, thanks for finally draining the last bits of meaning from the word "creative."
Meanwhile, guess how Lisa feels about Dayana returning instead of Penn? Just guess! They all expect Penn to go home, so it's no surprise when Clay and Dayana return. Aubrey unleashes the most insincere "Claaaaaaaay! Dayanaaaaaaa!" at them as they return. Clay ultimately interviews that he can't be too sad a stronger player got fired, even if he'd have kept Penn over Dayana. Meanwhile, Dayana thinks she'll have to watch her back, alone on the team with Clay and Lisa.
After the credits (I find myself mesmerized anew by Debbie Gibson's fierce water-spin), Aubrey delivers her Trump Bucks to GLSEN, an organization dedicated to stopping anti-gay bullying. So of course Aubrey makes sure everybody knows how she was "constantly bullied," because of course nobody has it worse than perky little fame monsters. I'm pretty sure this period of "bullying" she's talking about was her time in Danity Kane. I digress.
