Aimee says she was not aware of the issue. Trump says it should have been pretty obvious. Aimee says she didn’t spend much time in the mall. Muna says Aimee is “very caring,” but it was pretty obvious that there were a lot of Hispanic people there. Aimee says she wasn’t there when the issue came up. Derek says she should have known. Derek and Jenn say Aimee never asked her about the demographics. Aimee says she’s trying to bury her. Don wonders why they never brought it up. Aimee starts to talk about how the team let her down. Trump picks up on that and says she doesn’t like her team. Aimee, being no moron, tries to disagree with him. Aimee thinks Heidi had a better team to manage. She selects Jenn and Derek to return to the Boardroom with her.
Don says that Derek and Jennifer should have notified Aimee of the demographic. Surya thinks it was “a big miss” and wonders if they didn’t feel comfortable telling her for some reason. Trump wonders why everyone is against Aimee. Derek says she’s been absent for two tasks. Don wonders why they didn’t specifically tell Aimee about the demographics. Derek thinks it was obvious. Don disagrees – they should have told her. Aimee doesn’t think it was obvious, but admits she wasn’t paying attention to who was walking through the mall. Trump thinks that’s pretty weak. Aimee says that she assumed it was a non-issue. Jenn thinks that if it was an issue, Aimee should have been able to adapt.
Jenn says that Aimee never asked about it. She further says that she should not have had to tell her about it, because “she was in the mall all day” and it should have been obvious. Jenn points out that it wouldn’t exactly be hard for any of them to look around the Boardroom and see how many people are Caucasian (i.e. everybody but Surya). Jenn says that if she were withholding information, Aimee should have adapted, hired a translator, and dealt with it. Trump seems to agree with that. Aimee says that she noticed Latino people in the mall but didn’t know they spoke Spanish. Trump says the whole team was against her, even Angela, who is usually silent. “It’s all about leadership,” Trump says. She’s fired.
Trump says there were too many things against her. “It’s tough,” Surya says. Don says it was “pretty cut and dried.” I’m with Don. This wasn’t tough at all. For one thing, even without looking around the mall, I think it’s a safe bet that anywhere you go in Southern California, there are going to be lots of people who speak Spanish. And if Aimee is to be believed, by her own admission, she apparently spent the entire day at the mall and failed to notice the appearance of the people around her. Heidi and Angela figured out that people spoke Spanish, and they didn’t need a demographic breakdown to tell them.
Honestly, I think the main reason that Kinetic lost the task is because the people on Arrow are just better at this kind of thing. They needed to schmooze people, get them excited, and get them to the tents. Arrow has Tim, Frank, and James, all of whom are awesome at that kind of thing, plus Nicole and Stefani who are also no slouch. No one on Kinetic can touch them at that kind of thing. Nevertheless, Aimee has been an absent leader for the past two tasks. She was an easy choice to fire.
Derek watches Aimee get in the limo and says, “Oooh, she’s pissed.” He and Jenn return to the tents. In the limo, Aimee says that people will lie, cheat, or steal to get ahead. She thinks they could have won if she’d done the whole thing herself. If she’d hired her own people, she’d have been better off. She thinks they didn’t care about the task and wanted to get rid of her.
There will be no Apprentice next week, and the following week the show will begin an hour later, at 10:00 EST. We’re promised a double firing! Tune in to see who it is.
