Brent thinks he was helpful to his team because he created a buzz. We get more Brent vs. Stacy. Bill finally ends it by saying that since no one else was there, we’ll never know the truth. Go to the videotape! I would like to note that Michael has been quiet this whole time, which is very smart of him. If you keep your mouth shut when they’re not talking about you, you might get out alive. Summer.
Trump says that the location of the task was important and Stacy screwed it up. If she can’t handle Brent, she can’t handle Trump’s business, so she’s fired. Michael gets off with a warning and Brent is a disaster but gets to stick around. Pepi didn’t lead and lost the respect of his team, so he’s fired, too.
In the cab, Pepi says he’s disappointed but confident that he contributed a lot. Synergy is now in a bad place because Brent is still with them, so Pepi wishes them luck. He says that he put forth his best but there were circumstances out of his control. He thinks he was courageous to step forward and be the project manager when other people were afraid to. Even though everyone has to do it eventually. Whatever. Pepi tried his best to keep Brent in control and thinks that he should be back in the suite instead of Brent. He’s a loser in life. Ouch.
Stacy says that she’ll remember, “Location, location, location, you’re fired.” Me, too. Good times. She’s still arguing that Gold Rush did well in Times Square, so she couldn’t have screwed up too badly. Synergy is destined to fail with Brent on their team, and she doesn’t think there’s any way he’ll wind up working for Trump. Pepi says that they came into this experience because they deserved to be there. I guess Brent doesn’t, huh? He thinks they have good futures ahead of them. He’s looking forward to keeping in touch with the great people he met.
In her exit interview, Stacy says that she thought she would be a good apprentice because she’s a trial attorney (we know! You told us ten times!) and thought a lot of the skills she uses in her job would carry over into business. She was blamed for the bad location but would choose it again if she had to do it over. That’s our Stacy, learning from her mistakes. Pepi was in a bad situation because of Brent, who Stacy calls a “walking time bomb.” He should have been fired for his “unacceptable” behavior.
Stacy says that she often works with people who have been accused of things, and now she knows how they feel. This was the first time in her life she wasn’t able to talk herself out of something. So she’s never lost a case? Ever? I find that hard to believe. Stacy says that right before you’re fired, Trump stares you in the eye and won’t break the gaze. She knew at that point that no matter what she said or did, she was out. She’s happy to go back to her job and plans to do more media work.
In his exit interview, Pepi tells us that he thought he would win because he has a good education, a good family, and a lot to offer. I’m not sure what his family has to do with Trump thinking he’s a good businessman. Pepi thinks that being project manager was a calculated risk. If he’d won, he would be safe for a while. Not if he royally screwed up the next task. Has Pepi ever seen this show? He’s fine with what happened and says that so much went wrong, he can’t blame just one person. He then proceeds to blame Brent for the loss. Please find a new tune, Pepi.
More Brent-bashing: he’s unmanageable. He’s one of the most difficult people Pepi has ever worked with. He lacks self-awareness. Pepi feels for him and thinks that Brent expresses himself incorrectly, which leads to problems. When Trump said that he was firing two people, Pepi thought he might be one of them. After Stacy was fired, though, he thought Brent would be the other person to go, so he was surprised to be fired himself. Pepi has lots of good memories and liked meeting interesting people who he could relate to. He also enjoyed eating with Trump after the first task. Pepi is glad to go back to his job and his family, who will be proud of him. He’s paving the way for the next generations of his family.
In an interesting preview for the next episode, Gold Rush has a team meeting in the suite. Lee announces that tomorrow he and Dan will begin observing Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. This means that they will attend services for two days and won’t be working. Lee interviews that he hopes his team respects this. Tarek tries to figure out if they can communicate via cell phone, then realizes that that’s out of the question.
Lenny speaks up that this is “f^%@#*& stupid.” He thinks Dan and Lee just want an excuse not to work. Dan says that these are his personal beliefs and he’s just stating what he will and won’t do. Lenny says that he’s Jewish, too, but he’ll still be working. Israeli soldiers fight on Jewish holidays, even though they’re not supposed to. I think Israeli soldiers trying to keep from getting killed is a little different from Lee and Dan not marketing Tootsie Rolls or whatever. Dan says that all Lenny needs to know is how he practices his religion. Lenny says it’s fine, but if they lose, Dan will be blamed. Oh, Lenny. Did you learn nothing about religious tolerance from Jen C.? Trump isn’t going to like his attitude…
