Trump asks Audrey about John, whom she calls “embarrassing.” John asks why she didn’t step up and take over if he was doing so badly. He answers his own question, saying that she was “content to fail” because that meant she could bring John into the boardroom and try to get him fired. Trump asks if Audrey failed on purpose and if John is paranoid. John says no, but, again, she was content to fail. At 8 p.m. the previous night, she told Tana that she wanted John to make his own decisions so that if the team failed, she could take him to the boardroom. He says that a good leader shouldn’t even think bout failing until the job is done. He starts to say something about the only decision that Audrey made, but Audrey interrupts and says that she wanted John to take responsibility and credit for what he did. She proclaims him “terrible.”
Trump points out that John doesn’t think much of Audrey, either. This leads to the “22-year-old girl” conversation. John, I’m 22, and you’re sleeping on the couch tonight. John says that he wanted a different project manager because Audrey had problems with everyone, but winning would alleviate a lot of problems for the team. He wanted it to be Chris or Tana. But at 8 p.m., she was setting John up and she lost the respect of Chris and Craig because they heard the conversation over the speakerphone. He says that Tana agreed with him.
Trump asks Audrey if John’s “22-year-old girl” comment was the worst insult she’s ever heard. Audrey brings up John saying that she would be successful because she’s beautiful. After some discussion about that, Trump starts asking who everyone would fire. Tana would fire Audrey. Craig would fire Audrey. Angie would fire John. Chris says that Audrey looked for a scapegoat and wanted John to make a decision. He has nothing against her personally, but she looked for a scapegoat and he would fire her. Audrey chooses John, Craig, and Angie to return to the boardroom. Trump allows this, possibly because he wants to know why Audrey wants to bring Angie in.
After some discussion with Carolyn and Ashley, Trump calls Audrey, John, Angie, and Craig back in. Trump says that the whole thing is a mess and tries to get the others to agree that this situation shows how valuable an education is. Audrey and John don’t take the bait. Trump says that Magna is catching up to them and showing that their education is paying off. Craig says that Magna is doing better because they’re disciplined and work better as a team. Angie agrees. Craig says that Net Worth’s problem is “too much ‘me’ in team.” Carolyn wonders why they can’t get past that, but Craig doesn’t know. He thinks it’s too early for them to be focusing on individuals.
Ashley asks if Net Worth had a plan B. John says that the goal of the task was to win by a dollar, so that’s what they tried to do. Audrey disagrees that they were hustling, though John says that they managed to get some customers away from Magna. Audrey says that it was too late.
Trump wants to know why Audrey brought Angie into the boardroom. So do I. Audrey says that it’s because Angie was part of the marketing team. Angie can’t decide whether Audrey or John did a worse job. She finally allows that Audrey might have been worse. Audrey is shocked. Angie says that she wasn’t sure about the guys supporting Audrey on the task. Carolyn asks John why he let Audrey be the project manager if he wanted Chris to do it. John says that his vote was already lost, so he just let Audrey do it, because it was in the team’s best interest. Trump asks if this was the wrong decision, and John says that at that point, it didn’t matter. He supported Audrey until the 8 p.m. phone call.
Audrey argues that everyone else should take responsibility for their decisions. This leads to the conversation about whether or not anyone on Net Worth respects Audrey. Carolyn asks if everyone failed individually and Audrey says that they did. John, Tana, and Chris are good leaders, but they did a half-hearted job and failed. Carolyn asks if everyone should be fired except Tana and Audrey agrees. That was a mistake.
Trump says that Audrey didn’t take responsibility for her actions and wasn’t respected. She may be beautiful, but beauty won’t help her here. Audrey is fired.
In the cab, Audrey says that she respects Trump’s decision and wishes her team luck, but she doesn’t think things will work out for them. They’re divided and might not be able to “revamp their weaknesses.” She allows that it was her time to go. John is still terrible and she’s sad that he’s still there when she’s not. She can’t believe that he just sat back and watched the team fail, then called Audrey a weak leader.
Audrey liked the course they built, but the promotions weren’t great. She thinks that John should have found more parties and groups. She’s still blaming everyone but herself for her failings. How’s that working out for you, Audrey. She says that they did what they could with what they had and she’s happy with what they ended up with, especially since the kids enjoyed it. She didn’t want to leave, since she was having fun. She says something about Carolyn being young when she became successful, and something about winning and loss, but she’s not talking very loudly, so it’s kind of vague. She ends happy that Trump said she was pretty.
Next week: Maybe an extended performance by Barenaked Ladies?
