Don't get me wrong, Bill got his dream job and that's a good thing,

but how many of you would want to have that job and the boss that

goes with it?

I think I would rather have Joe Rogan's job (on Fear Factor). He

gets to tell people they are freaks if he thinks they are, he

watches people do outrageous things and at the end of the show he

tells one of them that fear was not a factor for them. I think I

could do that. I don't think I could do Bill's new job at Trump

There should be an "Apprentice" edition of Fear Factor.> could do that. I don't think I could do Bill's new job at Trump

You're right on about that! In the finale, Trump told Bill several

times he'll be getting a LOT of "supervision". Translation, DT will

be really the one running the project and he'll be up Bill's butt

24/7. When the year's up, at least Bill will have the makings of a

good tell-all book.> could do that. I don't think I could do Bill's new job at Trump

Hi,

It seems odd that Trump offered a 1 year job for a project that's

not due to finish until 2007. It just doesn't make sense to get

someone so involved with something like the construction of a high

rise to let him go after only 1 year. Either the intent is to keep

Bill after the year, based on how he does, or he's going to be

sweeping for the next year.

All of you make excellent points. I thought the same thing... here Bill wins the 'power job' of overseeing one of Trump's most important new ventures, and before he can really bask in the glory, Trump immediately cuts him down to size on National TV by saying he will have plenty of supervision. TO me, it seemed that Trump pretty much undermined Bill's 'authority' from the get-go, and made it sound like he was a token figurehead (which he pretty much will be since he has zero experience with that type of project). On one hand, it made it so clear that this whole "Apprentice" thing was for TV ratings (it sure met that goal), and NOT for a 'real' position of authority.

On the other hand, it also made clear that Bill indeed did land the 'dream job of a lifetime'. Think about it.. he gets paid $250,000 and a spiffy sports car, to be trained on the job and have others assume the 'real' responsibility. It's a no-lose situation for Bill, other than the fact that he will really never be able to claim credit for the end result. But since most valuable internships are unpaid, just think of Bill's pay as well as the connections he will make, experience he will gain, and how his resume will look, whether or not he is invited to stay on with Trump. Bill truly did get a gift job. I'm sure he will work hard, but he really cannot lose since his 1-year pay is guaranteed and others will pretty much do the project for him.

Sign me up! And all is cost him was to be a public spectacle for a few weeks on TV, jumping through whatever hoops Trump threw in front of him.

True, it did sound like the job is just a figurehead position. Didn't

he also say that the project will be completed in 2007

the show is a chance to be an Apprentice. It's much better for Bill that

he'll have a lot of supervision; a better chance for him to learn and less

possibility of making costly mistakes
