The extras start out with a seemingly misplaced scene of Chris and Tana getting dressed up in their clown costumes. Out on the course, Chris chews tobacco. Tana rocks.
Now we’re back to the teams meeting with Trump to get their assignment. I’m not sure why this was included, since they didn’t add anything interesting.
Magna checks out the location of their mini golf course. Stephanie wants a Safari theme. Erin’s sunglasses have taken over her face and are about to invade her neck. Kendra interviews that Stephanie doesn’t seem to realize that their course is right next to Net Worth’s. They could have a great design, but it’s going to come down to marketing. She raises the idea of giving discounts to people who are in the area for lessons. She and Erin then head out to pull off their marketing monopoly. Erin says that they were lethal and people couldn’t turn them down.
Over on the Net Worth side, things aren’t going quite as well. John explains that he, Craig, and Chris went to Kinko’s to get their fliers and banners, but “the girlfriends” wanted to buy the clown costumes. Chris tries to call Audrey for 40 minutes while she, Angie, and Tana shop and have fun in a costume store. Chris thinks that Audrey left the phone somewhere. Finally, she picks up and says that it was charging in the van. Chris asks whether the guys should be working on promotions or the greens. This leads to the big Audrey/guys discussion, ending when Audrey tells the guys to come in for a meeting. Craig interviews that that made no sense, since they were working and getting things done.
Early the next morning (around 4:30) Stephanie and Alex go to the prop shop for their mini golf stuff, then Home Depot for decorations for the venue. Once they’ve gotten all of their stuff, however, they don’t know how to get to Chelsea Piers. Stephanie studies a map, but it’s not very helpful. Alex says that after about ten minutes, she realized that they were going the wrong way and “blew her top.” Stephanie blowing her top, incidentally, involves a lot of swearing but not much else. She doesn’t start screaming and throwing things, at least. She says that she was cranky, hungry, tired, and sans coffee, so she threw a tantrum.
Stephanie is especially upset because they worked out a great timeline, and she didn’t think they would run late. This task is about revenue, and they lose some if they lose even a minute. She says that if they hadn’t made it back to Chelsea Piers, there wouldn’t have been an event. Of course, since we know there was an event, Stephanie and Alex make it back. They’re a little behind, but they just have to put everything together.
Net Worth sets up their course. Chris is in charge of this. Audrey isn’t impressed with Craig’s banner; she says that if he gets a job in graphic design after this, she hopes it’s for a kindergarten class in West Missouri where no one knows anything about graphic design, or even what letters look like. Hey, Audrey? My mom’s from the southwestern part of Missouri. It’s nice there. You should visit. Also, she has a Ph.D. So shut up.
We see Chris and Tana clowning up again. Tana says that Chris is wound tight. She hits him with a plastic hammer and he takes it from her, saying that he’s going to hit John with it. I have a feeling Audrey would like to hit John with that hammer more than Chris would.
Fast forward to Magna going to the golf course for their reward. Erin proclaims Trump’s helicopter arrival “hot.” Come on, Erin, if you’re going to steal Paris Hilton’s vocabulary, at least try to imitate her. The team hits ball with Cristie Kerr. Stephanie says that it’s stressful playing golf with Trump and Cristie.
Trump offers up $1,000 to anyone who can get a ball on the green. After Bren’s attempt, Stephanie goes for it. Stephanie, I have to say, has brilliant comedic timing. She asks Trump if he’ll raise the amount to $1,500 and $2,000 and he replies, with fake exasperation, “Just hit the ball.” Stephanie prepares to hit the ball, taking a few silent seconds, then asks, “One shot or two?” Everyone laughs and Trump exclaims, “Hit the ball!” Stephanie practices her swing as Trump complains that she takes more time to deliberate than anyone he’s ever seen. She says that she has to feel it before she can hit it. She takes a swing but hits the grass. “See, I didn’t feel it,” she says.
Net Worth heads to the boardroom. Audrey blames the team’s loss on promotional and marketing failures. John disagrees. After some bickering, Trump brings up Chris’ tobacco and Ashley gets his great line about chewing not being good for a clown. Trump asks how Audrey became the project manager. Audrey explains that John said she shouldn’t be the project manager, but she told the team that she would use them to 110% of their abilities. However, they didn’t give this. Trump asks if she thinks she failed as a project manager. Of course she doesn’t.
Audrey says that she was accused of micromanaging. She adds that Chris was the only person who gave her the requested timeline, but his was ridiculous. Audrey needs to find a middle ground. She asked for something that no one wanted to give, then complained that it wasn’t perfect. She should have just dropped it. Trump asks if Chris was good and Audrey says that he was, though before this task, she didn’t. Trump asks about the tobacco and Audrey says that she told him to stop doing it in front of people. Trump points out that Chris admitted to being addicted and next time she’ll have to put him in a straightjacket to get him to stop. He couldn’t go a few hours without chewing? He must really be addicted. Trump says that he’s teaching people the lesson not to chew or smoke. Trump, your spokesperson for anti-smoking campaigns.1 2 Next-->
