Once again we start with a preview scene. Net Worth meets after learning of their task and Angie volunteers to be the project manager. The team brainstorms. Erin knows nothing about Home Depot. Angie says that she doesn’t have to shop there to be involved and help out her team.
Back at the beginning of the episode, everyone back in the suite agrees that Erin won’t be going home. Indeed, Erin and Chris return. Tana says that she’s happy John’s gone because he was Net Worth’s strongest link. Angie calls Erin a “contender” and receives ten bucks from the producers for promoting another NBC show. Later, Stephanie and Erin start acting like Real World housemates. Ground them, Angie.
Magna meets so that Craig can talk in the third person… I mean, step up to be the project manager. He shares his “inward expression” of himself. In an interview, he says that his team has a great dynamic and this is the perfect team to lead. They’re all available for him to lean on, and it’s a win-win situation. He just used four clichés in two sentences. And he keeps talking about himself in the third person. He must be stopped.
After receiving their task, Magna goes back to the suite to brainstorm. Kendra says that Craig is the default project manager, since he’s the only person on the team who hasn’t done it yet, but everyone is supportive of him. Bren seems to know about Home Depot clinics, so already the team is better off than Net Worth. Craig thinks that interacting with people is going to be a big part of the task. That puts Magna another step ahead of Net Worth.
Craig discusses having different stations and including things for different parts of the house. No one seems to know what he’s talking about. He starts talking about cutting a car in half, and he’s definitely lost everyone. Tana wonders in an interview if Craig wasn’t making sense or if it was just her. She notes that someone needs to take charge. Craig says that the world is the team’s oyster on this task. His teammates seem to be thinking, “Now there are oysters involved?”
Net Worth is at Home Depot, trying to figure out what to do. Stephanie brings up the mobile kitchen island, or, as I would call it, something that takes up more space in your kitchen. Chris says that they should go crazy with it. And he would know… nah, too easy. Angie says that Erin signed off on this task because she claimed not to know anything about decorating or do it yourself projects. Angie thinks this is ridiculous, as everyone has to know something about decorating.
Stephanie suggests actually building an island, so Angie sends her and Erin to get wheels for it. Wouldn’t the kit contain wheels? Chris says that when they came back, they had a bunch of wheels that didn’t fit. Angie is frustrated with her team and says they’re all dumb. She expected more out of Erin.
Over at Magna, the team has their discussion about the box. Sorry, chest. Craig notes that the rest of the team doesn’t seem to appreciate his decision, but he doesn’t care, since he’s busy building the box.
Fast forward to Magna getting their reward flight. Craig appreciates getting to do something that only a few people get to do. Plane, flying, flips, etc.
Back at the suite, Angie reminds Erin that she checked out of the task early on. Erin brings up the presentation and how badly it went. She says that Angie blew it because there was no do-it-yourself aspect to the presentation. However, she’s ready to go to the boardroom because, apparently, she thinks of it as a game rather than something serious. She has fun in the boardroom because she knows how to play the game.
Erin says that she’s going to wear her red suit because it’s “hot.” Keep that in mind when Trump compares her to Paris Hilton later. She says that she doesn’t feel like she looks better in it, she’s just more comfortable in it. She adds that this is about her and Trump. She’s going to do the “boardroom boogie” - she’ll be pointing her finger and doing the dance. Someone has her dances mixed up. Oh, and in case we didn’t understand what she was talking about, she actually does a little dancing in her seat. Thanks, Erin. I was really confused. She denies that she’ll be fired, and Angie denies the same, saying that the loss wasn’t her fault and she wasn’t the weakest on the task.
Net Worth heads to the boardroom. Angie tells Trump that part of the reason they lost was that they were already down four members to Magna’s five. Then, when Erin proved to be no help, they really only have three members. Erin says that she tried to contribute, but George challenges her claim that she didn’t know anything about Home Depot. He says that she should have gotten on the internet and done some research. He adds that he never saw her at the presentation; she was somewhere in the crowd in high heels, trying to help people who were buying nuts and bolts. Erin says that she was wearing jeans, but George says she was wearing jeans with high heels.1 2 Next-->
