Toronto gets Trumped
I can't help but love The Donald and all his peculiarities. The skits SNL impersonators do of Trump give me endless joy. "Five. Four. Three. Hi. The Donald here...." He's the man who does everything his way, including floor direct. Apparently it's not far from the truth.
During Trump's apprearance in Toronto at The Carlu last night (why wasn't I informed? I too work in the make-believe world of television) he told the audience he'd be more hands-on this time around. He'd hand-picked 2,000 finalists for The Apprentice and rumour has it he's going for ratings over ability. Can't wait to see the A-holes picked this time. Interestingly, both Trump and Burnett have said the playing field for US reality TV may now be open to Canadians, especially since it worked out so well for INXS's Rock Star show. Great news! Last time we saw a Canadian get through it was Kel on Survivor, but he'd moved state-side before he could make his debut on one of the world's favorite shows. Used to see him around the city, smiling sweetly at Fashion parties and running around in longjohns for Canadian Tire casting calls. Wonder where the kid is now. He'd probably have faired better under Trump's supervision than running around the jungle with his jerky hanging out.
