Omarosa arrives, assesses the situation, and quickly reminds Kwame that Troy was in charge of the breakfast and is to blame. Seems she can recognize everyone else’s screw-ups, but not her own. Omarosa asks Jay to make sure “Miss Simpson” has whatever she wants for breakfast. Omarosa pulls Kwame aside and tells him that he needs to be more expressive with what he wants. Considering the way she’s performed so far, I’m not sure she really wants that to happen.
Jay tells Kwame that he never talked to Troy, so he didn’t know what the arrangements were supposed to be. Mark is unhappy because this snafu makes the Taj Mahal look bad. He tells Kwame that it is ultimately Kwame’s responsibility, as the leader. In an interview, Mark says, “Kwame’s team killed him.” Kwame returns to the hotel room and fills Heidi and Troy in on what happened. Heidi is glad to hear that in the end, things worked out. Troy says that he did talk to Jay. I tend to believe Troy – he’s an honest person and wants Kwame to succeed. Kwame says in an interview that he doesn’t want to run around looking for the person to blame and just wants to move on.
Back at the golf course, Bill is still worried about the frost delay. Lesley from the Trump National notes that the frost delay will push back everything on the schedule and wonders how Bill will deal with it. She asks him if he’s made arrangements for when Trump arrives. Bill says that they’re all set, but admits that he doesn’t know what time the man will get there. Lesley tells him, “Be aware of his arrival.”
Lilting music sounds from the heavens as Trump arrives. His clubs are waiting for him. Meanwhile, Bill asks that someone man the gift table, because it looks terrible. He asks Nick for an update on the frost delay. Trump works the crowd. Finally, he and Bill run into each other. Trump says in front of everyone that if Bill doesn’t do a good job, he’ll fire him “like a dog.” Bill says that Trump was joking, but that basically, it’s true. He really wants to win and is feeling the pressure. Trump tells Bill that the tournament needs to start no later than 10:30 because he needs to go to Atlantic City that night. If I were Bill, I’d feel totally confident telling anyone and everyone that the frost delay would be lifted at 10:30, since the owner of the golf course said so.
Back in Atlantic City, Omarosa smugly says that Troy dropped the ball on the breakfast, so the meet and greet must go smoothly. I’d say that’s the pot calling the kettle black, but I don’t want to be accused of using a racist term. Heidi says that she was in charge, but now Troy is in charge too, and it’s too many chefs in the kitchen. Heidi is upset that Kwame asked Troy to help because she feels like he doesn’t trust her to do a good job. Kwame joins the rest of the group in the office, and Heidi confronts him about it. He says that he does trust her and that Troy is just there to help. She is in charge. Heidi says that she feels like if it goes badly, it’s all on her. Kwame corrects, “No, actually, it’s all on me.” He tells Heidi that it’s her show.
At the golf course, it’s time to clear all of the boxes and junk out of Lesley’s office. Bill says that the fast paced environment is fun for him. He asks Katrina to take care of the boxes. She says that Bill is frantic. “Don’t ask me 20 times whether I’m doing it,” she complains. Lesley notes that he’s running like crazy in and out of the clubhouse and that it doesn’t look professional. Bill asks Amy if the final pairings are done. She reminds him of a conversation they had the day before in which she asked him to only ask her to do a task once and to consider it done. She thinks he’s too crazed. She and Katrina take a walk and complain that Bill asks them a million times if they’ve done what he asked. Amy says, “I right now don’t think that Bill will win and it makes me very sad.”
Heidi heads to the ballroom to get started. The meet and greet will be an opportunity for fans and casino VIPs to meet Jessica. Heidi wishes she had more responsibility and says that she would actually do better than Troy if given the opportunity. In the ballroom, she’s immediately accosted by Steve, one of the casino Vice Presidents. Steve is concerned because there may be more people than they’d originally planned and the ballroom may not be big enough. Apparently Troy knew this, but never passed the information on to Heidi. Looks like Kwame’s plan of having them both involved backfired a bit. Kwame arrives and explains that they plan to have people come into the room in small groups, not all at once, so it should work out fine. Through all of this, George is there making observations. He says in an interview that Kwame has everything under control and that it’s a hard task.
Everyone mills around in the ballroom waiting for Jessica. Kwame says in an interview that it’s important to stay calm and not “Chicken Little with his head cut off.” That’s a funny mixed metaphor – you’ve got your headless running chicken, but apparently he’s also yelling, “The sky is falling!” Come to think of it, that seems to be exactly what Kwame meant. He wants to be calm and collected and not alarm everyone without cause. But where is Jessica? There she is – on stage… with Omarosa prancing around in a short dress. Omarosa doesn’t answer her walkie talkie for a while, but finally picks it up and says that Jessica will be there at 5:30. In an interview, Kwame says that it’s hard to check all of the details, but that he has faith in his staff. If he were to check up on everyone else’s work, it would be like doing their jobs as well as his own.<--Previous 1 2 3 4 5 Next-->
