Trump wants to know who forgot the jacket. Alex blames Angie, but she says that she had too many responsibilities. Trump notes that Angie has been in the boardroom six weeks in a row (as has Chris, though he doesn’t mention that). He says that people keep talking about how great Angie is, but she’s not demonstrating that. Angie says that they failed as a team, but Trump doesn’t buy that. Carolyn notes that she gave her worst performance ever this week. Trump adds that if Angie isn’t fired this week, she’ll probably wind up back in the boardroom next week. He’s tired of it.
Carolyn asks what Chris was doing while Angie and Alex were getting ready for the presentation. The answer is, losing the credit card. Carolyn thinks that this is a big deal. Trump asks if it was really lost, but Chris says it wasn’t, since he knew where it was. Lost, not lost - the point is, it wasn’t in your hand, and that’s the problem. Michelle notes that it must have taken Chris a long time to get the credit card back. Angie confirms this, adding that when he went to Best Buy to get it, it wasn’t there. She thinks that this hurt Alex’s focus, which in turn hurt the presentation.
Alex thinks that the presentation was bad because they were rushed just beforehand. He also thinks that Angie didn’t think big enough. Um, okay. Carolyn thinks that Alex and Chris could have done the presentation better because they’re in the target market. She thought that putting Angie in charge of the presentation was a bad idea right from the start. Alex says that he was in charge of the designs, but Carolyn asks if he doesn’t think that the presentation was pretty critical. He agrees.
Trump asks if Alex could have done a better job in the presentation than Angie. Well, obviously. Trump asks if Chris could have, but Alex isn’t sure. He thinks that Chris and Angie are both great public speakers, and Trump finds this amusing, since Angie did so badly. The group discusses the jacket and the Best Buy fiasco. Angie blames Chris, thinking that he could have done a lot back at American Eagle in the three hours that he was gone. Trump kicks the three out to talk to Michelle and Carolyn.
Angie, Alex, and Chris return. Chris thinks that he did a great job. Let’s see, Chris - your one task was to keep track of the money, and you lost the credit card. You didn’t get back to American Eagle until about two minutes before everyone left for the presentation, which you didn’t participate in at all. Yeah, great job. Trump notes that Chris disappeared and lost the credit card. Chris says he forgot it and didn’t lose it. YOU LOST IT. YOU DID NOT HAVE THE CREDIT CARD WITH YOU WHEN YOU LEFT THE STORE. I’ve changed my mind. Chris should’ve gone home this week. Angie deserved to stay ten times more than he did.
Trump asks Alex if the team lost because of Chris. Alex says they didn’t - they lost because of their bad presentation. Angie agrees that she gave her worst performance ever, but she doesn’t think the failure was completely her fault. She starts going off on Alex, and when he asks her to stop talking, she tells him she won’t. Trump asks Chris if he’s to blame for anything, but Chris thinks he’s as pure as the driven snow, since he wasn’t involved in the presentation. Angie and Trump remind him that he lost the money. Chris counters that he found it. Oh, that makes it okay, then. Shut up, Chris.
Alex says something about Angie not being able to find the phone number for the models. He adds that they were ten minutes late. Angie says that the models were Alex’s responsibility, because she knew that she had too much to do, and she told him that someone else needed to be in charge of the models. Alex tells Angie that she doesn’t delegate to him, he delegates to her. Well, you didn’t do that very well, so can you blame her for trying to pass off a job to you? Angie says that Alex can’t delegate everything to her and then blame her when things go badly.
Trump asks Angie if she would fire Alex over Chris. Angie says that, for all the complaining she’s done about Alex, she would want Chris gone over Alex, since his stunt with the credit card pulled Alex’s focus. He’s been a disaster. Chris will only take a little responsibility for the team’s failure. Alex thinks that Trump should fire Angie. There’s discussion of whether Angie had enough time to prepare for the presentation, as well as her cracking under pressure and Alex’s responsibilities.
Trump asks Alex who’s better, Chris or Angie. Alex thinks that Chris is, because he has talent. I’m not sure how much longer I can go on liking Alex, if he’s going to keep sticking up for Chris like that. There’s discussion of Chris’ temper. Trump starts in on his accusations, telling Chris that he doesn’t want to deal with his temper and noting that Alex is being brought down by a losing team.
Unfortunately, it’s Angie who’s called a loser and is accused of choking in the presentation. She’s fired. In the lobby, she says she can’t believe it.
In her cab, Angie is still in shock. She thinks that she took a bullet for someone in the boardroom. She’s shocked that Alex wanted her fired over Chris. She thinks that her big mistake was agreeing to do the presentation; she should have told Alex to do it. She’s not sure what she would have done differently in the boardroom, since she stood up for herself. She wasn’t delegated the responsibility of getting the product to the show. She repeats that she was given too much to do, but if she’d been in charge of the clothes, that jacket would’ve made it to the presentation.
Angie thinks that Alex chose her to go over Chris because he sees her as a threat. That might be true. She doesn’t think that Chris will last much longer, and thinks it’s amazing that he’s still there. She loves him, but it’s the truth. She allows that there have been worse project managers than Alex. He had a good day the first day, but then fell apart. She thought he was a contender until then. She says again that she took on too many responsibilities and should have said “no” to the presentation.
Next week: we’re down to the last six contestants, which means that Chris has to go sometime soon. Oh, come on, you know I’m right.
