I admit it: I'm an Apprentice junkie
But I love the show.
This is what I don't get though (and I say this while knowing I am not perfectly skilled grammatically. I hope I at least have some command of the English language). I mean, these candidates are supposedly the best and the brightest. These are CEOs, Harvard alumni, attorneys...
Here are some snippets of conversation spoken by the two team leaders.
I really liked Heidi, the team leader of the winning side, until this came out of her mouth:
"someone else could have went."
Uh, English 101, Heidi. Gone versus went. Simple, really.
Then Frank, the brash, groveling team leader of the losing side:
"(he) could have gave a little more" and "if a landslide had blew me (over)".
Uh, again, remedial English sir. Given. Blown.
Sorry, I had to mention it because it's a pet peeve.
Like when people say "I seen" when it should be "saw". That drives me nuts.
Okay, off my soapbox now....
