Idol Chatter

Randal, who was hired by Donald Trump on last night’s finale of the fourth season of NBC’s <a href="The Apprentice, acted like a sore winner, upsetting viewers who have been in his corner all season long.

The highly-educated, kind-hearted, tall and lanky gentleman had achieved something that has eluded contests since the show’s inception: nearly universal respect. But at the very end of the 2-hour finale, Donald Trump offered Randal a test of his values which, according to at least one reviewer and several booing audience members, Randal failed. Trump asked Randal, after announcing that he had been hired, whether he thought Rebecca, his fellow finalist, should also be offered a position in the Trump organization. Instead of sharing the glory, Randal replied, “Mr. Trump, I firmly believe that this is ‘The Apprentice,’ that there is one and only one apprentice, and if you’re going to hire someone tonight, it should be one,” Randal said. “It’s not ‘The Apprenti,’ it’s ‘The Apprentice.'”

The boos from the audience said it all. Once you’re hired, apparently it’s no more Mr. Nice Guy.
