Yes, I admit it, it's been one of the shows I've been watching when I work on my laptop, or as background when I'm around the kitchen/living room.
By watching it, I think I actually learned a few useful things about interactions with coworkers, bosses, and the workplace in general.
If you have no idea what it is, it's a 15 week long interview to get a job working for Donald Trump. The candidates get a task each time, and compete against one another to achieve the task. In the end, the winner gets a high paying and ranking job for Donald Trump. Smart of him to have come up with that idea.
I just finished watching the finale, and I was quite disappointed that after both top candidates had been so good, and Randall won, he said that he did not believe the other candidate should get a job working for Trump too, making a bogus reason that there should only be one winner. He really seemed like the kind of person who would be happy to share his victory, and for whom victory didn't have to be at the expense of someone else.
This shows how much I still have to learn about human nature...
