Donald Trump isn't what he appears to be. On camera, he's brash and disrespectful, a pompous ass whose defiant demeanor and bullying behavior have put all of the Republican presidential candidates on their heels. He insults people everyone from Sen. John McCain and rival Jeb Bush to Fox's Megyn Kelly and Univision's Jorge Ramos and the entire population of Mexico and he plays fast and loose with the facts.

It's standard practice that in 'The Apprentice' (Thu., 10PM ET on NBC) finale, several fired contestants return to help the two finalists in the last challenge. [Spoiler alert.] In part one of the finale, Clint heads up a dinner gala at the Trump National Golf Club. Liza Minnelli will be giving a special performance. Mahsa and Poppy peruse the event's posters: Minnelli's name is spelled wrong. The next morning, Poppy then notices a second, far worse error. "'Liza Minnelli' wasn't just misspelled on the welcome poster. It was also on each and every individual place card that would go on the dinner tables," explains Poppy. There's no way to fix it. The printing cost $4,000 and the team has $1,400 left. "That is the type of thing that you lose 'The Apprentice' for!" exclaims Mahsa. We'll see next week. Source & Video

Steuart Martens has become the 12th candidate fired from the competition, leaving Clint Robertson, Liza Mucheru-Wisner and Brandy Kuentzel in the run. The four remaining contestants were challenged to market products by Isaac Mizrahi, and Donald Trump told them to divide by sex. Brandy and Liza took the side of Fortitude while the men teamed up for Octane. They were free to pick a product to be sold at QVC and must earn the biggest profit through careful calculation. The women chose to sell watches while the other team chose purses. In the boardroom, Mizrahi told Mr. Trump that Octane gave too big a price tag to the purse while Fortitude under-priced the watch. When the result was revealed, Fortitude took bigger profit since they sold more products. The women sold 77 watches for a profit of $2,998.38 while the men sold only 25 handbags for a profit of $2,174.25. To Read More Click Here.

Team Fortitude's Stephanie and Liza created a conundrum for Donald Trump on 'The Apprentice' (Thu., 10PM ET on NBC). Stephanie's role as project manager gave her ultimate responsibility for the failure of the team's commercial. But no one in the boardroom seemed impressed with Liza's abilities. Who should be fired? "Liza has sat in the background: She steps up when I show up or during the boardroom," Donald Trump Jr. told his father. Trump said to Stephanie, "I'm not happy with Liza, but you're the project manager, and you have to say you came up with the concept, and that was the single biggest problem you had ... Stephanie, you're fired." As Liza left the boardroom, Trump gave her a stern warning. "I was not. happy. with. you. one. bit. You better get your act together." Do you agree with Trump's decision?
