For the second week in a row The Apprentice's high school-educated Networth team failed to execute on its assigned task -- and in what has been a very common occurrence, its losing project manager, Audrey Evans, later found herself being fired from The Apprentice 3.
In last week's Apprentice episode Audrey, a 22-year-old high school educated real estate agent from Salt Lake City, had been singled out in the boardroom by many of her teammates as being the weakest link on the team. Although she managed to survive that boardroom, the fallout from the session's hard feelings reverberated throughout this week's seventh Apprentice episode, dominating Networth’s task performance.
In an attempt to prove herself to her team, Audrey convinced her reluctant teammates to allow her to become Networth's project manager for the seventh episode's task. The decision would ultimately prove to be her undoing however, as her many of her teammates (led by outspoken fellow contestant John Gafford) did not respect her nor execute the assignments that she tasked them with, causing Aubrey to become the sixth (out of seven) losing project manager to be fired this season.
This week's task pitted Networth and the college educated Magna team competing to create and run a miniature golf course inside the sports and entertainment complex at the historic Chelsea Piers in New York City. Magna, led by project manager Stephanie Myers, worked well together and negotiated an exclusive contract with the Chelsea Piers management to advertise and promote their miniature golf course.
Things didn't go nearly as smoothly at Networth, with the team exhibiting a general lack of task focus as John and Audrey continued to butt heads regarding the direction and execution of the project details. When it came time to run the actual business, both were able to deliver, but Magna’s superior marketing brought them more customers, leading them to an easy victory.
As their reward, the victorious Magna got to spend an afternoon playing real golf with Donald Trump and LPGA star Cristie Kerr. While most of the team seemed to enjoy the opportunity to play on the full sized course with a pro and The Donald, they all appeared to need a lot of practice if they hope to have Trump invite them out for a round again... unless of course he needs a caddy.
In the boardroom, most of Networth's team picked up where they had left off last episode, blaming Audrey for their loss. While she was able to deflect some of the criticism and proved herself feisty at times, Aubrey's efforts would eventually fall short of saving herself. With even her closest ally Angie Harper turning on her after Audrey selected her to come back to the final boardroom, Trump told Aubrey the "you're fired" phrase no Apprentice contestant ever wants to hear, making her the eighth contestant to be eliminated from the his job search competition.
