Apprentice 3 Candidate devastated by firing.

There may not be crying in baseball, but there is crying in the third season of NBC's "The Apprentice."
"I was so devastated when I was fired" by Donald Trump, first firee Todd Everett told The Associated Press Friday. "I'm so bummed. You get all emotional. You put so much on doing that. I had to go back to my hotel room and cry it out."
Ouch. On Thursday night's season premiere, the 34-year-old sales manager and father of two from Carlsbad, Calif., took the role of project manager for book smarts team Magna.
Trump cited Everett's lack of leadership and control over team members Danny Kastner and Alex Thomason during a whopper of a task in which both teams marketed and sold a new line of hamburgers.
"It's tough to be the project manager," said Everett. "It sends sort of a message to people that are on this show that you need to fly under the radar, which is not a good message."
Everett revealed future tasks "lend themselves" to either the Net Worth street smarts team or the book smarts team and the candidates "who win are the people that develop that fine line" of good business sense and charisma.
Now that he's done with "The Apprentice," Everett is wondering where his invitation to Trump's wedding to Melania Knauss might be, even though the real estate mogul has said that no Apprentices — or ex-wives — would be asked to attend Saturday's ceremony in Palm Beach, Fla.
"I think my invitation is still out there somewhere. I can't imagine he would not invite any of us," Everett told the AP. "I wish him the best. Hopefully, third time's the charm, right?"
