We start with a “preview scene,” which contains nothing new, but which reminds us that Tana is the coolest white-person-attempting-to-act-“street” ever. She and Craig meet and successfully negotiate with Lil’ Kim.
Back on the first day of the task, Rhona calls the suite and Angie takes down her directions. Kendra winds up as Magna’s project manager, since she’s the only person who hasn’t done it yet. Bren tells Tana that Chris should step up for Net Worth. Angie says that Chris has never volunteered to be project manager. He winds up taking the job this time.
Kendra, Tana, and Craig meet with Lil Jon. Carolyn is amused. Tana says she was “down with” Lil Jon and the Eastside Boys. I could not love Tana more.
Speaking of love (or, in this case, the lack thereof), Betsy’s and my ex-boyfriend John goes with Erin and Stephanie to meet with Barenaked Ladies. I love BNL, and I’m sad that John has tainted them. I hope Tyler didn’t let him touch his drums. Erin isn’t happy that John keeps talking about himself. Stephanie says that John’s ideas aren’t creative.
Back in the car, on the way to meet Gene Simmons, John talks about pimping Stephanie and Erin. I certainly hope he means pimping in the Pimp My Ride sense. He’s glad to have Erin and Stephanie going with him because Gene likes women. He may like them, but he doesn’t respect them. No wonder John likes Gene so much. John immediately starts talking about himself, but Gene isn’t impressed. When they start talking about women, Gene tells Stephanie and Erin that a man should be able to look into his “beloved’s” eyes and tell her he loves her, but also wants her mother and sister. If I never see Gene Simmons again, it will be too soon. He gives a little falsetto, “Just kidding,” but he’s obviously not.
Erin interviews that, normally, if a man spoke like that to her, she’d smack him and slap him with a sexual harassment suit. Normally, schnormally. I don’t care how famous the guy is - she should’ve said something. As if that weren’t enough inappropriateness, Stephanie interviews that Gene slid his phone number across the table to her. She tries to sound outraged, mentioning that they were in negotiations and that wasn’t professional, but she’s also laughing a little. Way to make it seem okay, Steph.
Magna prepares for their segment at Fuse. Tana’s a MILF. While talking up Lil Jon, she says that she got “crunktified” at his place. I don’t know what that is, and I don’t care to find out. Kendra says that they got a lot of good bids, then asks rhetorically, “Who doesn’t want to spend seven days with a star?”
Net Worth prepares for their segment, figuring out how much time they can spend on each artist. Erin says that she loves being under pressure and she works better when she’s in a time crunch. Angie says that being in the control room and watching the segment being filmed was the most exciting experience of her life. Tyler from BNL is funny. Gene is still inappropriate. Angie says that the show delivered, but now it’s up to the bidding.
Net Worth winds up in the boardroom. Trump asks Chris why he sent Tana and Craig over to Magna. Chris says that Tana is easy-going and easy to get along with, but she’s “not business savvy.” That’s whack. He starts to say something about Craig and Trump fills in for him that Chris couldn’t handle Craig. Chris agrees and says that Craig “speaks very demeaning” to him. What’s with this team and the word “demeaning”? Trump asks why Chris let Craig talk to him that way. Chris replies that you can only push so far and can only go to a person so many times and ask him not to talk that way. Interestingly, Chris almost misspeaks and says John’s name instead of Craig’s while talking about asking a person not to speak a certain way.
Angie thinks that Chris is a good guy and was good on TV. Trump agrees; he didn’t think Chris was cool, but he was cool on TV. Chris raves about Fuse, saying that everything was incredible, especially the people. Trump notes that Stephanie is exempt and asks how she did. Chris admits that he doesn’t really know, since Stephanie spent most of the task with John and Erin. Trump asks John the same question; John points out that they lost. Trump compliments Erin’s deejay skills and she reveals that she majored in broadcasting in college. Trump tells her that if she gets fired, she should be a deejay. She says she’s thinking about it now.1 2 Next-->
