The Apprentice: Extreme Room Make-Over

This week our candidates are partnered with Ace Hardware to renovate a recreational room for Boys and Girls Clubs of America.

Lenny and Michael stepped up as PM's for their respective teams and no boardroom was more uncomfortable to watch than was the meetings they each led with the Ace Hardware and Boys and Girls club executives.

Both sides must struggle to get the task completed on time and blame this on the lack of leadership of the project managers.

Amazingly the rooms do come together and the execs bring some kids in from Boys and Girls club to check out the new rooms.

Synergy's "lounge" theme (which I personally thought sounded kind of sleazy) was the clear winner with many interactive opportunities for the kids to enjoy.
Gold Rush went with a music theme and while the kids seemed to enjoy playing on the instruments, the executives felt the mark was missed.

The winners are sent to Toys r Us to assist a little girl on a shopping spree courtesy of the Make a Wish Foundation.

The losers are of course sent to the boardroom.
Lenny tried to blame Charmaine for his loss and while he hoped Lee could help him in the boardroom, Trump saw no reason to delay the inevitable and said

"Lenny, you're fired"
