Trump tells the teams the winning PM will receive $20,000, and Mark makes the “surprise” announcement that Walgreens will kick in another $30,000. The teams are dismissed, and in an interview segment Lisa predictably complains about still being on a team with Dayana, but she also takes a shot at Lou, who she knows is going to bring nothing to the table. She says she’s literally in her version of Hell, and she’s going to “deal with these idiots the rest of my eternity.” Either she thinks this show will last a lot longer than one season, or she’s overstating things just a touch.
Forte arrives at their war room, and the men try to get acclimated to the new surroundings. Lisa sounds annoyed already as she suggests they try the men’s style of brainstorming, because “clearly ours doesn’t work.” Dee suggests Lisa knows they have a winning formula and she wants to be a part of that.
Penn announces he has to fly out at 2:00 that afternoon to do a show, so Lou interviews that he has to utilize as much as he can until then, but his only concern is whether Penn will return and make a mistake onstage because he didn’t have enough time to rehearse. More foreshadowing?
Joe and Mark arrive to fill the team in on the Walk with Walgreens program. Lisa interviews that she’s a firm believer in doing as little as possible physically, and she’s the type of person they’re hoping to reach—the couch potato who hates to move and who would rather be wheeled around in a wheelchair all day. Actually that sounds like a good plan…
The execs remind the team that they have to design the outside of the membership kit, which Dee tells us is a 4-by-4-inch box. Lou tells the execs he’s had both knees and both hips replaced, and it helped him appreciate the value of walking once he could move again. The execs offer a half-hearted “That’s a great story,” and it looks like they said it at gunpoint, but Lou interviews that they were “excited” when they heard it. Tomato, to-mah-to.
Back at Unanimous, Clay mentions that what they’ve seen of Aubrey and Teresa in the Boardroom does not make them terribly enticing to want to work with, but there’s a ray of hope because he and Arsenio are still on the same team. Aubrey takes over the creative end and rambles for a while about how their box should be eye-catching, and the men’s eyes glaze right over.
Arsenio says he likes to hear from the executives before he starts locking in on things, and Aubrey interviews that he seemed like a strong player when she was on the other team, but now that she’s seen him in action she’s not impressed. Just because he didn’t call you a creative genius right off the bat? Someone thinks highly of herself.
Joe and Mark enter. They say nothing of note, and Arsenio starts asking about how important the membership kit is but Aubrey jumps in with a question of her own. Arsenio tells us that usually the PM takes the lead, and he’s doing all he can to pretend he’s fine with Aubrey but calls her a “narcissistic piece of work.” Of course most of us realized that weeks ago.
Over at Forte, Penn suggests a campaign based around all the things you can do while walking, such as flirt, date, and make phone calls, and Lisa likes it so she says they start rolling with it. Dee suggests they haven’t used all of their talent, so Lisa can roast someone and Penn can juggle, even though they’ve both done those things already. Dayana makes a suggestion involving a treadmill which Lou glosses over but Dee comes back to, and Penn interviews he knows very little about Dayana, but so far she’s wicked hardworking and is good to have on the team.
As walking is discussed further, Lisa says Penn is kicking ass and he’s the most brilliant person there, and the two of them are doing things that the Project Manager should, so she’s concerned because Lou isn’t contributing anything. But as if to contradict her, Lou delegates Dee to get involved in the directing of the kit design, Lisa and Penn will do the writing, and he says he’ll be the onstage host. Penn takes issue with this, and interviews that they have three professional speakers on the team. But Lou puts his foot down, and plays the “I’m Project Manager” card.
Lou of course takes issue, as he says Penn questioned his decision, as he has before, but he wants to be the host because he can deliver a heartfelt message better than anyone else, and if he was PM they would not have utilized his strength. Man, he really sounds like a broken record sometimes. Not as much as Teresa (“Are you serious?”) but still.
In the Unanimous war room, Aubrey and Clay seem to be taking the reins, as the concept is changed from a talk show to a game show, which will get the audience involved and encourage them to join the program. Clay tells us Aubrey, Teresa, and Paul will be team captains who spin a giant wheel and answer questions onstage, Arsenio will be the host, and Clay is the announcer who calls contestants up onstage and tells them what they’ve won Sounds like a fun idea.
Aubrey has an idea for the box that involves a picture of each team member with a quote about why they walk that relates to them (“I walk to stay hot,” for herself, naturally). She suggests Arsenio as the person who walked away from the industry for a while, which throws Arsenio for a loop. In an interview he calls her ruthless and manipulative, and says her comment was meant to be a dis. I don’t think that’s true, to be fair—she’s just not very smart to know how that can be taken. The bottom line is, she’s getting on his nerves, so expect him to erupt any second now.
As the team goes to the Walgreens store to take pictures, Aubrey has another idea of having colored T-shirts in the audience to correspond with each contestant. That’s not a bad idea either; maybe she really is the creative force on this team. I just wish she wasn’t so hateful, though.
At Walgreens, we’re treated to a montage of Aubrey taking everyone’s picture. Paul interviews that she’s a very controlling personality and Arsenio probably doesn’t appreciate that she’s taking over and doing things on her own. She leads everyone out, and some dialogue that was totally not edited in by the editors for dramatic effect involves her not letting Arsenio see the pictures she took.<--Previous 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Next-->
