Trump and George wonder why Net Worth lost. Bren brings up the failure to take a picture of the interior tag. The group talks about the Solstice, because apparently Trump doesn’t feel that they’ve advertised the car enough. Carolyn points out that the team should have focused on emotions.
Carolyn asks Alex how he feels about the brochure text. Alex thinks it was terrible. Bren wonders why Alex didn’t say anything. Alex acknowledges that Chris was responsible for the team’s failure as a whole. Trump says that Bren is a great guy, but he’s not very exciting. He tells Bren that he means that in a nice way, and Bren seems amused. How can you mean that in a good way?
Anyway, Trump’s point is that he doesn’t get why Chris put Bren in charge of the brochure when he’s not the most exciting person. Trump adds that Chris is crazy and wild (I’m sure he means that in a good way, too), so he should’ve done the brochure. Chris basically says that there was nothing else for Bren to do. Bren argues that Chris made his decision in the cab, before they even started, so it’s not like they got to work and Chris realized that Bren had no job. Chris says that he thought he would do a better job with the photos. Trump wonders if Chris could have done both the photos and the text. This is the guy who spent three hours hunting down a credit card last week, so I doubt it.
Carolyn asks Chris why the team failed. Chris says that it was because of the brochure text. Bren repeats that someone should have said something about it. George asks who was responsible for the amount of text in the brochure. Chris pins that on Bren, “to a certain extent.” Bren says that Chris gave him a page with the photos on it and told him to fill in the blank spots, so it’s Chris’ fault. Chris says that everything about the task was his responsibility to a certain extent. George says that the pictures were more important than the text, so there should have been more photos than words.
Trump mentions again that Chris has lost seven times and still hasn’t been fired. He asks Bren if Chris is a loser. Bren says that Chris isn’t a loser, he’s just lost a lot. Trump thinks he’s being kind, but Bren claims that he’s being honest. Trump asks Chris if he’s a loser. Chris, of course, says that he isn’t, he’s just lost a lot. George notes that he’s also been lucky. Trump says that Chris is talented, but he keeps losing. Chris doesn’t know why, since he worked hard. Yeah, you really worked hard at standing around last week. Trump asks George and Carolyn for their opinions; they both think that Chris should be fired.
Trump says that Bren’s writing was horrible, and Alex shouldn’t have kept quiet about it, but Chris was the project manager, and everything went badly. Therefore, Chris is fired. Now for my favorite part, when Chris starts crying. I’m sorry, but…hee. Hee hee hee. I think that if you cry after you were turned down for a job, you need to get some thicker skin. Did he really think he would slip through the cracks again? Anyway, Trump tells Chris that he has a lot of potential and could be a big success. Out in the lobby, Chris hugs Alex and Bren. Not seen: Robin IMing her friends, “You won’t believe what just happened!”
In the cab, Chris thanks Trump, George, and Carolyn for the experience. He had some good times and met some great people. He says that he went into combat in the boardroom with his “bros.” He wishes Alex and Bren luck. He calls the experience a roller coaster, especially this last boardroom. He thinks it was neat to go in with two people he respects, adding that they all spoke facts. Chris likes facts a lot, apparently. He goes on that when there were more people around, it was easier to explain failures. I think he really means that it was easier to find someone to blame for failures.
Chris says that if he could have fired anyone else tonight, it would have been Bren, because he thinks Alex and himself are stronger than Bren. However, he thinks that either Bren or Alex will win. His most memorable experience was drinking with Alex and Bren last night; it was nice to have a release with people he cares about. If your most memorable experience after 12 weeks of a job interview is drinking with your buddies, you need to rethink your priorities.
Next week: who cares? Kendra’s in the final four!
