Fareau, I agree with you on WHY he made his choice--the woman will be more interesting going forward than the man. But she didn't do a whole lot of anything right as far as I could see. Right down to her dubious selection of the debate kid as the third boardroom selection, she made mistakes the entire time. There is no way she can be a winner.
She will not win, nor is it likely that she will even make it to the final four, but I suspect that this has little to do with her judgement or ability. More to the point, I don't really believe that this is a true "15 week job interview". Rather, it is a transparent effort at comercial exposure of the Trump name: the bottom line is not about finding and hiring superlative workers for the company, but rather about amassing the largest possible viewing audience, promoting his brand name, and increasing his consumer base. The contestants or interviewees (or whatever we choose to call them) can engage in all of the in-fighting, negotiating, strategizing, and posturing that they want. I strongly suspect that what will keep them in the game the longest is their "watchability". If the Donald thinks that an individual has (or can) develop a fan base and will attract viewers, he will be less inclinced to fire that person. Still, it is a very entertaining show and certainly makes for some addictive viewing.
