Surya the Desi Apprentice: Part 6: The Mad Scientist

The Apprentice: season 6, episode 6

"Hip hop hoooraay, hooo, heeey hooo,
Surya Yalamanchili is still on the shooooow..."

The Great Brown Hope has survived yet another week and he has moved from a fringe character to a central piece. After getting a touched overly fired up about being taken to the board room last week, Surya turns out to be a little bit crazy....err ...sorta like a Mad Scientist. The best part is that out of his whole day he's basically filmed missing out on a sale pitch with three people, thus making him look like a bit of a putz. Gotta love TV editing.

Not since Amitabh Bachchan's acting in "Naseeb" has there been such drama revolving around brown people. But I think we all know how that one ended, in a fiery escape from a revolving restaurant where three Indian guys are forced to slide down a wire some 30 stories in the air while a bad guy (on fire) chops away at the wire. I think we can all agree that this is a pretty fungible metaphor that can applied to most parts of people's lives.
