Christine calls Allie and breaks the bad news. The women think it’s “so unfair.” Roxanne is frustrated and thinks it can hurt their sales. Allie says she doesn’t want to be down. They stop at a stop light just in time to hear the guys on campus promoting their party. They get kids chanting “blue lot!” The women sit in their van and make frowny faces. Perhaps they should get their butts out of the car and start talking to some students. That might help. Also, I can’t believe all of the team members are still in business wear. They should change into Rutgers sweatshirts or something.
The next day, Synergy sets up their tent. They all dress up in cheerleading outfits. This is how they can use their girl power. Allie’s girl power put her pants on backwards.
The guys set up their money grab and work with the cheerleaders. Lee thinks it’s going to be great. The mascot will be there, too. The prices are “bargain basement” low, and Lee figures the kids will come flocking. Seeing as how he’s within a couple years of their ages, probably Lee can’t get away with calling them kids. It’s kind of depressing to realize that I totally can.
The cheerleaders set up in front of the tent. Sean walks around the tailgates and invites people to come by. Lee convinces a customer to add clam chowder to their order.
Synergy sells everything for $5. Carolyn thinks that’s interesting. I’d be all about a five dollar steak! Tammy offers to deliver the food to people. Allie does the same. A group of guys has her do a cheer and she scores a $200 sale. Roxanne says that the tailgating delivery will make all the difference. That is a brilliant idea.
Gold Rush is working hard. Lee says Michael needs to get off the microphone and start selling. Meanwhile, Allie uses her cheer again, which impresses Roxanne. Roxanne says that Tammy is doing great at the tent. She feels good about how the team is doing.
Gold Rush stars their eating contest, which is really gross. George and Carolyn (nice to see the two of them again) look disgusted. Someone forces some food into Michael’s mouth. Carolyn says they’ve created a spectacle. But are they converting the crowd into sales? Michael says it’s all about man food and men. “Guys like steak. Guys like cheerleaders.” He feels confident.
The teams arrive in the boardroom, and the women are still in their Rutgers sweaters. Lee says that his team did great. He thinks they threw a great event and sold a lot of food. Sean says he was a great PM. Trump drools over the women’s outfits. He is such a slimeball sometimes. Michael says pretty women had an advantage, which was why they had 20-30 women on their team. Roxanne says she hopes they won. She seems considerably less confident. Gold Rush had several events, the cheerleaders, and a cash grab. They earned $1,750. Synergy focused on sales and sold to everyone. They earned $2,750. The women win. Lee admits that its’ a huge difference. For their reward, the women will be flown to the Raphael Winery. They’ll pick and stomp grapes, creating their own signature wine. Cool!
The women take the Trumpcopter to the vineyards. Allie is excited. They take a hay ride over to the cabernet franc grapes. Mmm, cab franc! Then they get to stomp grapes like I Love Lucy. Roxanne dances through her grapes. All three stomp together. They then blend wines and each get their own bottles. Over a nice looking meal (with wine, of course), they wonder what the guys are doing. They guess that Michael is primping in the mirror, and Sean and Lee are shooting hoops.
Sure enough, that’s what Sean and Lee are doing. They think that Michael spent too much time on the microphone. Sean says he was attached to it like “a bloody umbilical cord.” Later, Michael tries to talk to Sean about who will be fired. Sean doesn’t want to talk about it. After all, he’d say either Lee or Michael, so what’s the point, really? Michael thinks his downfall will be that he wasn’t selling. He thinks Sean was the only one selling. Lee didn’t set them on the right path. It was a great party, but they should have just sold the food. Lee doesn’t want anyone to go. Michael says he doesn’t want Lee to take anything he says in the boardroom personally. Lee is nervous- he’s been in the boardroom seven out of ten times. It’s his first loss as PM.
During the commercial break, we learn that in “Get Rich with Trump, 27% think Allie should be fired! Guess that’s not going to happen.
In the boardroom, Lee says they had a great strategy, but got outsold. He is very surprised they lost. Michael thinks Lee is a good PM, but lost because of a flawed strategy. He says that Lee set the strategy of having events. Carolyn says that they failed to convert the people in the crowd to sales.
Lee thinks Michael should go. He should have sold more. He was too caught up in the events. Michael says he was asked to run the events. Sean says Michael did not sell. He was in charge of the eating contest and money pit. Trump thinks that the eating contest doesn’t make sense. Why give people a ton of food and then expect them to buy more? Lee says that it is just a draw to bring people in. Yeah, not to mention that they didn’t give everybody the chance to eat their head-weight in free steak. More of a concern should be the fact that watching guys stuff steak in their gobs as fast as they can was really gross and unappealing.
Lee set the prices, along with Sean. He doesn’t think it was wrong. College students don’t carry much cash, Lee reasons. Carolyn says the women had no problem selling at higher prices. George thinks the students would have been willing to pay eat and drink at a tailgate party. Trump says college students just want to drink and have sex. Shut up, Trump.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
