Field of Schemes
BRADFORD, 33 In a Friendster profile, the Fort Lauderdale lawyer writes, "I have two speeds–100 mph or nothing." No kidding. As project manager, he insisted his concept for a Mattel toy was the only way, then went with a different idea on the spur of the moment. The win earned him immunity for week 2. Fickle or foolish? "You'll see,' says Trump. "He's going to be interesting to watch."
PAMELA, 32 Not only was the investor from San Francisco the losing project manager, but she also offended Trump's deputy Carolyn Kepcher by ridiculing boys in a Mattel focus group. Two strikes–and yet she decided to head into the boardroom 1 with two teammates instead of three, increasing her chances of dismissal. Weird move, but Trump likes her style. "An absolute killer. Really tall too, by the way."
RAJ, 28 The Vail, Colo., real estate developer is probably the first reality-show contestant to hit the hard streets of New York brandishing a walking stick (not to mention those red pants and bow tie). Maybe it's a remnant of his prep-school days? "A dapper guy," says Trump. "But was sort of turned off by the cane as an aesthetic statement. Give me a break."
STACIE, 35 The restaurateur and model from New York City freaked out her teammates with an inexplicable meltdown, claiming she was J; being frozen out of a conversation. "At first everyone thought it was a joke," says show creator Mark Burnett. "It was like a weird brain blip. After that she was back to normal. But it unsettled people."
ANDY, 23 The rattlingly intense (shades season l's Sam!) recent Harvard grad from Boca Raton had the savvy to start his own business at 13, but his losing toy idea was a geeky nightmare: mutant action figures called Crustacean Nation. "To be honest with you, I thought it was a strange idea," says Trump. "But he's very smart guy."
JENNIFER C., 32 Dining with Trump and her winning teammates, the New York City real estate agent studied and aped his every move–decoding which fork to use and how to pluck a prawn from a champagne glass. It was either charmingly naive or All About Eve. "I had no idea she was doing that," says Trump. "I saw it the first time watching the episode. It was rather amazing."
