I love crazies!
On TV, I mean. Real life is another story. Once I visited Washington DC and a very crazy lady ran up to my mom and pointed at her and screamed “YOU ARE THE CHOSEN ONE!!!” She stared at us for a few seconds, then sat down on the bench next to me and started playing the guitar, while simultaneously peeing in her pants. I certainly could have lived without that experience. But on television, crazies are so much fun, and The Apprentice always delivers in that respect.
This year, The Donald’s show doesn’t really have a certifiable loony. Toral was kind of nuts, but in a psycho-self-important-corporate way, not in a psycho-fun way. Thankfully, Martha’s edition does…
No, not her! She's just like you and me. I always wear gold clogs when I walk my dogs.
Yes, Jim! He’s totally crazy. Seriously, I think he’s manic or something. But he’s fun to watch.
Jim thinks he’s all-powerful. And things that he wants to happen actually do, which only reinforces it. He wanted Dawn out, and Martha fired her. He “warned” Jennifer not to take him into the boardroom, and now she’s gone! Then he said if Martha made him project manager, victory was guaranteed. No problem. He’ll be like Babe Ruth and hit one out of the park! And he was right, again!
All of this seems to be feeding his crazy delusion that he can do anything, beat anyone. And I must admit, I think I’m getting sucked into his little Jim-world, because I’m really starting to like him.
Or maybe I’m just liking the fact that I know that he’ll eventually self-destruct, and it will be totally fun to watch the truly all-powerful being (Martha, of course) spank him back to reality.
Hmm, it’s probably the latter.

I narrowly avoided meeting Stacie J when I was on the set of Kill Reality. WHEW .
I love the crazies too but only when they are on the other side of the world, or at least the other side of the street :)
