First up is the post-boardroom waiting game, played this week by Mosaic and Jennifer. Jennifer thinks that Chris is on his way out. Ivana and Kevin return and are greeted by the others. Kevin tells us that Jennifer is always protecting herself, as well as brownnosing. Ivana is mad about what happened and thinks that Chris was afraid of Jennifer. It must be her wacky, magical Fembot powers, right, Ivana?
Everyone jokes around about Jennifer still remaining, and Wes says that she must have the ability to "dog someone out in a nice way." Jennifer doesn't respond because she knows he's on to her. She can't say anything; that's not her style.
After the Levi's assignment is given and Kelly joins Apex, his new team welcomes him warmly. Jennifer is confused about their assignment; not sure what kind of catalogue they're supposed to be making. Jennifer is every girl I went to high school with - she looks like she's smart and paying attention, but the second the teacher's back is turned, she's all, "What are we doing again, guys?" And then she gets the rest of the group to do the work. Just saying.
Apex meets with Robert Hanson, who asks what Levi's jeans mean to them. Ivana says, "Levi's - they fit." That's… original. She says that you can always find a pair that fits. Oh. Kevin asks Robert who the ideal customer is. Robert asks the question back to him. Kelly speaks up, "Everyone with legs."
Ivana says that there's a big selection of styles, and for some people it can be overwhelming. Robert agrees, stating that shopping isn't an easy experience for everyone, so they have to help them. Ivana starts talking about the seat of the jeans and kicks off the episode's "it's all about the butt" theme. I'd like to state, for the record, that Jennifer doesn't say anything during the meeting. What's with the code of silence?
Mosaic wraps up their photo shoot, and Wes sends Andy and Sandy to get their van, which he says is parked one block away. He mentions that they only have 15 minutes left to drop off their photos. Sandy drives the van while Andy gives her directions. Sandy winds up driving on one-way streets and swearing. Now she's in the New York state of mind.
Wes heads outside to look for the van, which is probably no longer one block away. Sandy asks if they're missing their deadline. Wes calls, and Andy has to fish their phone out of Sandy's purse. He announces that they're on their way. Sandy tells Wes to meet them on the "main street," but Wes has no clue which one she's talking about. Sandy says to "go left" out of the door. That's how I give directions, too.
Sandy's circling with the van. She needs a travellin' prayer. She decides that it's easier for Wes and Maria to come to them. Andy tells Wes that they're at 21st and Tenth. Wes wants to run, but Maria can't because she's wearing four-inch heels. Wes tells Andy that they're at Ninth. Sandy tells them to go to Tenth. Wes realizes that they should have taken a right out the door instead of a left. He starts to run, dropping the phone (and possibly breaking it) in the process. What's with these people and phones? Maria takes her shoes off and runs with him.
Kevin and Jennifer head over for Apex's photo shoot, which we see again. I'm not complaining; I get to see Kevin with his shirt off again. Give me a second; you have to leave a tender moment alone. So pretty. Okay.
There's posing. Kelly says that it took courage for him to pose without his shirt on. Ivana tells the others that he said, "This is really accentuating my old man fat roll." Hee. For the record, he's only 37. Well, only the good die young. Ivana says that everyone has love handles. Except for herself. And Jennifer. And Kevin. Kelly calls this a "'don't quit your day job' situation." Jennifer comes in for her turn, and Kelly seems to be thinking, "You look so good to me."
Mosaic prepares for their presentation. Andy brings up the jeans-wearing idea, but is shot down by "we're fines." Famous last words. We see their presentation again. Andy says that Maria dominated, which is true. Wes says that Maria didn't think the butt shots were perfect, so she took them out. Okay, Mr. Project Manager. He thinks that he put too much faith in Maria, who's proven that she's a loose cannon. So much for keeping the faith. After the presentation, Robert and his executives discuss Mosaic. The woman thinks that their catalogue had a good attitude, was youthful, and appeals to both men and women, but the man isn't sure.
Apex prepares for their presentation, wearing Levi's jeans and T-shirts, because when in Rome… Kevin sweats and talks about perfection. Ivana talks about butts. She says that anyone can wear jeans and look good. She explains the fit guide, which I think was a really good idea. Jennifer takes over. Ivana obviously wants to talk, but can't find a way to do so without interrupting. You had to be a big shot, didn't you, Jen? Robert tells Apex that they did a great job, but their presentation wasn't "visually compelling."1 2 3 Next-->
