Abstract (Document Summary)

Already, the local applicants have started squabbling "Apprentice"-style. One, an artist known as Boke, blew off the meet- up at the pier after accusing another candidate, Bob Vanech, of a power play in arranging where and how the event would unfold. Venture capitalist Vanech acknowledged the process was only "semi- democratic."

Vanech and [Mike Dwyer] disclosed they had already participated in a screen test at an El Segundo hotel. While Dwyer said he was discouraged about his chances afterward, Vanech said, "They told me I did great. They want someone who can talk to the cameras."
