After their win, Jennifer and Sandy fly to Chicago and meet with Bill. He congratulates them on making it to the final four. Jennifer notes that Bill is doing well in Chicago and jokes that Trump sent them there to check on him. Bill says that they had a big win and Jennifer and Sandy tell him that it wasn’t even close. Bill shows them a model of a building. Sandy asks if he’ll get to live there and she and Jennifer joke that he should get his application in. The three of them seem very comfortable with each other, but they’re still keeping it professional. They’re kind of nice to watch together.
Bill, Jennifer, and Sandy head into a model home (which makes me think of Arrested Development) and talk about strategy. Bill says that from this point on, the competition is about “heart, passion, and desire.” Jennifer and Sandy ask some questions and get some advice. Bill says that this experience is life-changing; they’ll learn things that they’ll be able to use for the rest of their lives. Sandy interviews that she and Jennifer now have information that the members of Apex don’t. Bill tells Jennifer and Sandy to focus on their successes rather than others’ failures. In other words, be more like Kwame and Troy than Omarosa and Heidi. Bill tells them to enjoy the ride. Jennifer is happy with the reward and calls it a “good surprise.”
Back at the suite, Kevin tells Ivana that he and Kelly wanted her to win. They promise not to pick fights with each other in the boardroom and tell each other how much they like each other. This can’t last. Kevin doesn’t know what will happen.
On the balcony, Jennifer and Sandy want to know who Kelly thinks should be fired. Kelly says that he’ll tell them afterward what he said in the boardroom. He says that Kevin and Ivana both have strengths. Sandy says he’s skating around the issue and she wants an answer. Nice Trump imitation. Kelly confirms that he’s prepared for the boardroom. He’s comfortable going up against Jennifer and Sandy, but he doesn’t think that Ivana and Kevin deserve to go. He promises to be honest with Trump about his feelings. Apex departs for the boardroom.
In the boardroom, Trump asks Apex how they were beaten by, again, two women who used to hate each other. He asks about their pricing strategy. Kelly replies that they just underestimated Mosaic. George calls this a flaw. Kelly accuses Ivana of being unable to control Kevin while they were selling the candy bars. This leads to the whole price discussion. Kevin is ultimately blamed for the lower price, and there’s not much he can do to get that blame lifted.
Carolyn says that Kevin should have consulted with Ivana on the price. He says that he did and that she gave him permission. Ivana doesn’t protest, so I’m guessing that this actually happened and we just didn’t see it. If she hadn’t given him permission, she probably would have spoken up. Trump asks Kelly who’s more creative. Kelly says that Ivana is. Trump asks who is smarter; Kelly says that Ivana is. George asks Kelly who should be fired. On a roll, Kelly says that Ivana should.
Trump and Carolyn are both confused about Kelly’s decision that the smarter, more creative Ivana should get the boot. Kelly says that Kevin is a better leader. He has respect for both Kevin and Ivana, and thinks that the three of them are the strongest three in the game. Trump points out that Jennifer and Sandy did better on the task.
We get the whole discussion about Ivana’s flashing incident. Ivana gets defensive and Carolyn tells her to stop addressing people with “look.” Trump asks Ivana if she’s happy with her decision. Ivana admits that it wasn’t a great decision, but it did work. Carolyn tells her that she wasn’t selling candy. Trump confirms that Ivana has a fiancé and asks if stripping in public was worth it. Ivana says that they needed to make more money. Desperate times, yada yada yada.
Trump asks Kevin if he was surprised by Ivana’s gimmick. Kevin says that he was. Trump asks if he was happy about Ivana’s decision. Kevin says that he had mixed emotions. Trump points out that Kevin could have done the same thing as Ivana and made some more money. Heck, yeah, he could’ve! Kevin admits that he wasn’t “vehemently opposed” to Ivana’s choice (and bonus points for using the word “vehemently”) but he also wasn’t supportive. Afterward, he did bring up the possible “long-term implications.” Carolyn says that she blames all three members of Apex for what happened. Trump sends them all out of the boardroom.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
