And now it’s time for my favorite moment from the episode – the Audrey/Angie Tag-Team Kristen Smackdown. Unfortunately, there’s no new footage. But I could sit and listen to Audrey yell at Kristen all day.
Magna meets up with Steve Forbes for their reward after they win the hotel task. Erin is happy that their horrible day ended with a trip on a yacht. Danny calls the yacht a “palatial palace on water.” Thank goodness he wasn’t an English major; I’d have to be embarrassed for my kind. Bren notes that the yacht is bigger than his house. Mine, too. Steve Forbes talks about success and paying attention to people. Then there’s the whole Statue of Liberty thing, which Forbes says symbolizes striving to do better. Erin is proud to be an American and to be here. Because in America, you can buy pink bath mats. Forbes flies off in his helicopter and Bren says that he’d like to live like Forbes someday.
Magna may be partying, but Net Worth is due in the Boardroom. Brian says that Net Worth didn’t function as a team. He blames himself for their failure and agrees that Trump should fire him. I think it would have been hilarious if Trump had just fired him then and there. But, no, we have to go through the rest of this. Trump is never unpredictable when you want him to be.
Kristen, of course, agrees that Brian should be fired. She says that he wasn’t organized, didn’t delegate, and didn’t discuss the budget. Trump asks Angie if Kristen gave Brian a hard time. Angie says that she did, and she made a big deal out of a five-minute argument. Trump asks if Kristen was worse than Brian. Angie agrees that she was bad for the team, but not worse than Brian on the task. Trump asks Kristen if she’s a difficult person; Kristen says she’s not. *cough*Liar!*cough* She says that she didn’t think it would be so difficult to deal with the money with someone who wanted to spend so much of it.
The question of the budget comes up. Brian denies that Kristen wanted to discuss the budget, saying that she headed out to shop instead. Brian says that he didn’t have time to make a line-item budget. George asks about Brian’s timeline. Brian says that it was screwed up. George asks if there was in fact a timeline. Brian says that there wasn’t. George asks, rightfully so, how it could have gotten messed up if it doesn’t exist. Oh, I have complete confidence that Brian could mess something up that didn’t exist. George says that Brian was delusional if he thought that Net Worth could finish on time, since he didn’t have a timeframe.
Trump asks Audrey if she would fire Kristen or Brian. Audrey says that Brian should have handled Kristen better. This leads to the swearing discussion. Trump asks John the same question. John says that Brian was abrasive and gives an example. When they were in the boardroom earlier, to find out which team had won the task, Magna mentioned that the members of Net Worth looked tired. Magna got less sleep, but they had a better time. John thinks that that’s why they won. Brian denies that anyone else could have done a better job than he did. Brian? My cat could have done a better job.
Trump says that Net Worth was a complete disaster. They left the price tags on the lamps and the plastic on the mattresses. Kristen blames Angie, since she was the designer. See? Kristen really can’t be quiet for five minutes. Trump says that the college graduates are laughing at Net Worth. Yes, but last week, Net Worth was laughing at the college graduates. Brian says that he’s great. Trump counters that he’s abrasive and made dumb decisions.
Chris speaks up that the team wasn’t organized, and Brian was supposed to be in charge of that. He says that they had a bad plan of attack. Angie says that Chris told everyone he had experience with renovation. Chris freaks out and starts yelling for no reason. That was really weird. I actually started to think at that point that Trump might see him as too much of a loose cannon and would fire him instead of Brian.
Trump wonders what he’s doing there, then fires Brian. He tells Net Worth that they need to “get it together.” After everyone leaves, Trump says that Brian was lacking in judgment.
In the cab, Brian thanks Trump for the opportunity. He says that having dinner with Trump the previous week was the best night of his life, second to the births of his children. He thinks that Trump lost a good negotiator, but they’ll cross paths again. He says that Net Worth is in for a challenge, and the next project manager is going to have a tough time. However, he also wishes his team luck and hopes that one of them will become the apprentice.
Next week, there will be two fewer names for me to have to remember.
