I love George Takei so much I can hardly stand it. His voice. His swooning over Lou Ferrigno. He’s the best.
When he’s fired from “The Celebrity Apprentice” Season 5 — and I seriously doubt he’ll win, although I’d be thrilled — I may have to stop watching. I still don’t know who a lot of these “celebrities” are and, as usual, the loudest people in the room are already getting the most attention.
On the guys’ side, Team Unanimous, comedians and former “Dancing With the Stars” losers Penn Jillette and Adam Carolla can’t stop joking long enough to be taken seriously. I’m always a fan of the quieter stars, so that’s probably why I’m rooting for “meek” Mr. Takei. I haven’t picked another favorite on the men’s side yet, but dark horses always emerge. (By the way, congrats to Paul Teutul, Sr. for being the winning project manager, earning almost $500,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.)
On the women’s side, I’m loving Patricia Velasquez and I think it says so much that her Team Forte lost the first challenge of the season and yet no one thought she should’ve gone home. She is classy, smart, thoughtful and everything good. I had never heard of her before tonight’s premiere but I’m impressed with what I’ve seen so far. People stop jabbering and actually listen when she speaks — which is huge since the women always talk over each other and the biggest interrupter in Apprentice history is always “Mr. Trump” himself. Guy never shuts up.
I like Chery Tiegs but she’s lucky to be escaping before the ugly drama starts. I would’ve fired Victoria Gotti — she did seem to spend a lot of time on that phone talking about non-Apprentice things — but no one really pushed for it. They are all on their best behavior at this point, like roommates walking on eggshells around each other in the first week at college. This will end.
Before the season started I knew I would be Team Sulu but I’m so impressed with Patricia that I hope she goes all the way. I think she has the stuff to be a good, respectable winner.
