UPDATE: That was Howie drinking himself foolish last night. Ryan drank too much last week. The plots are repetitive. Why is that, in a reality show? Is it that people are too much alike and only have so many tricks and foibles? Or are the producers, noticing the boring footage they're collecting, prodding contestants to do some outrageous things?
IN THE COMMENTS: We're speculating that, in a surprise ending, Jim becomes the Apprentice!
