From an email I just wrote that displays the depths of my APPRENTICE addiction:
I think Nick is Sam #2...not as volatile, but very prone to delusional thinking. He deserved to go, but Ereka has repeatedly racked up emotional outburst points since episode one, and I think she does such a terrible job defending herself in the boardroom that it wasn't too hard to see what would happen.
Troy is my favorite right now, though I like Bill as well. Amy has a lot of potential to actually win, because she's competent, everyone likes her and she doesn't attract negative attention...and at the end of the day, despite all the hype, Trump could be looking for an excellent subordinate more than an actual "leader".
I do expect Omarosa to last forever because she's cursed with incredible luck. Watching her undercut Amy's negotiating last night was worth the entire season.
