A happy looking Trump instructs the candidates to meet him in a conference room to review the results. The two teams raised $75,000 for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. Protégé brought in $35,000, which is excellent, but Versacorp beat them with $40,000. There is no reward this week because, Trump says, raising money for a good cause is the reward. As for Protégé, Trump says, “I can’t be overly upset. I can’t be angry,” since they raised so much money. But nevertheless, they must meet him in the boardroom.
Looking at the auction itself, most of the items sold for around the same price – $6,000 to $7,000. Versacorp had the lowest selling item with the Tiki Barber package selling for only $4,000, but they more than made up for it with their higher ticket items – the party at Rocco’s and the day with Carson Daly. It’s hard to say that one team really did better than the other, especially because we don’t know the details of what was included in all of the prize packages. The main difference between Versacorp and Protégé seemed to be that the Versacorp team members went in to their meetings with ideas that were generous but realistic (with the notable exception of every idea we saw from Tammy). On the other hand, Protégé appeared to go in a little colder, hoping that the celebrity would have a good idea of what to offer. Again, it’s hard to say why Versacorp beat Protégé this time, but they did seem to be a little better organized.
Versacorp goes out for drinks to celebrate. Amy cries, “I love this team!” Nick does a very funny imitation of Troy explaining himself in the boardroom. They all tease Tammy about how crazy she is (Tammy’s craziness is funny so long as they continue to win challenges). They tell Tammy that’s she’s in left field while the rest of them are in right field. But if they throw the ball to left field, Tammy says she’ll catch it.
Nick and Amy head back to the suite, where they do some serious flirting. Amy tells Nick about her past relationships, and Nick says that he wants to get married and have kids some day. He has already chosen the names: Jake for a boy, Brooke for a girl. Amy teases him, saying that men usually don’t get to pick the names. Nick and Amy both admit that they like each other, but don’t want to let their flirtation get in the way of the competition.
Omarosa says she’s not worried about going to the boardroom. She can talk circles around farm girl Jessie, country boy Troy, New Yorker Heidi, and MBA robot Kwame. That was a real insight into the way Omarosa seems to see this situation. Not only is she not the one who deserves to be fired this week, but she seems to think that she is truly better than all of the others. She really managed to compartmentalize and put down all of them.
Next, Omarosa talks soothingly and condescendingly to Jessie about why she deserves to go. “You were horrible today,” Omarosa tells her sweetly. Jessie disagrees, and Omarosa continues to patronize her. She says that not only did Jessie mess up the negotiations with Isaac Mizrahi, but she did it in front of George. In an interview, an emotional Jessie says that the character behind a person is what really matters. Troy thinks that Omarosa and Jessie are the two most in jeopardy.
In the boardroom, Trump asks Troy how Omarosa was as a leader. He says that he questioned her at first, but she ended up doing a great job. Heidi agrees, saying that she was pleasantly surprised at how well Omarosa did. Trump pressures her to say who should go, and after trying to get out of it several times, she finally admits that Jessie had trouble negotiating. Kwame agrees that based on her trouble negotiating with Isaac, Jessie should go. Trump asks Jessie if Omarosa was a good leader. Jessie says that even a good leader can succumb to pressure, and that’s what happened to Omarosa. Huh? In response to that, Omarosa says that Jessie is just trying to protect herself, because Jessie was clearly responsible for their failure.
Next, Trump asks Omarosa how Heidi did. Omarosa says, “Heidi was fantastic.” She goes on to say that Heidi is unprofessional and doesn’t have any class or finesse, but… A laughing Heidi interrupts to say that she has plenty of class. Yeah. Remember when Heidi badgered the customers at Planet Hollywood to do more shots? Or the time that she whined and did a dance to convince a guy to knock ten bucks off the price of the gold bar? Or the time that she showed off her cleavage in a business meeting? Or when she went all around the suite swearing and screaming about Kristi? Yep, she’s a classy one, all right. Trump says that Omarosa’s “you have no class” comment was probably the worst compliment he’s ever heard. Does Heidi still like her after she said that? Heidi says that she does, and that Omarosa is entitled to her opinion. Trump can’t believe it.<--Previous 1 2 3 4 5 Next-->
