View Printable version of this article
Chris is… still at Best Buy. He says that he was probably there for an hour before the manager found the card and gave it to him. Bren and Craig bring in the clothes and show them to Tana. Tana wonders what she’s supposed to do with backwards logos. She says that the presentation will either be a third of the reason they win or a third of the reason they lose. “What was he smokin’?” she asks. Hee. She says that the guys were gone for five hours and brought back junk. Craig and Kendra consider covering up the paint, but Tana just wants them to keep moving.
Craig uses white-out to cover the paint on the white shirt. He says the executives will be looking at the model anyway. Actually, no, they’ll be looking at the clothes, since that’s the whole point of the task.
Net Worth does some finishing touches and Angie realizes that it’s 2:30. The presentation is at 3:00. Alex announces that they need to get the models and leave in no more than five minutes. Too bad the models, who were supposed to be there at 2:00, aren’t there yet. The models arrive and dress quickly. Chris arrives around this time, having no clue as to what’s been happening. He says that because they’re so focused on the presentation, they don’t think about everything. The camera guys would like us to notice a jean jacket hanging on a rack.
It’s 2:40, and Net Worth is just now leaving. To drive through traffic in New York for a meeting in 20 minutes. Yeah, good luck. In the cab, Angie says that they’re going to miss the presentation. She thinks she’s going to be sick.
Net Worth arrives on time and seems organized. Tana greets the executives and talks about the Wearable Tech line. The models line up and Bren talks about clipping the Game Boy to the kangaroo pocket of a sweatshirt so that it can be hidden in school. Bren, encouraging America’s youth to slack off. He talks about mesh pockets and clips that can be sewn onto jeans. One of the executives asks what Bren thinks is the most important piece of technology to this generation. He says it’s the cell phone, which means that he paid attention to what the teenager told Kendra and Tana. Smart people on this team.
Net Worth finally arrives. Angie asks Chris if he brought the jean jacket. Nope, it’s back on the rack. Angie says that if things weren’t bad enough, the first model doesn’t have his jean jacket. Angie starts off the presentation, but she’s a little shaky. The line is called Beach Tech, by the way. Alex notes that Angie isn’t focused; she freezes up and had to read from her notes. He thinks it’s like a high school communications class.
Angie starts showing the clothes. The executives look like they want it to be over right now. Angie shows a pocket in the back of a sweatshirt where a laptop can be stored. Who wants to carry a computer around on his or her back? That would be really uncomfortable. An executive asks Angie what the most important piece of technology is. Angie says it’s the iPod. Ehhh?! Thanks for playing. I can tell you that, as someone who hasn’t been out of college long, most college students can’t afford iPods (at least not at the school I went to). Cell phones are much more useful. Almost everyone has a cell phone, but iPods aren’t quite that popular yet.
The executives send Net Worth to the back of the store with Magna so that they can discuss them. As Trump arrives, the executives agree that both teams obviously put effort into the task, but Magna’s presentation skills were much better. The teams return and the execs tell Net Worth that their presentation wasn’t thrilling, though their effort is appreciated. Magna’s research is lauded, as is their knowledge that cell phones are important to teens. The execs announces that Magna is definitely the winner.
Trump tells Magna that since they spent two days designing clothes, they get a shopping spree. They’ll be going to Bergdorf Goodman, which has very classy clothes. Net Worth, however, will be heading to the boardroom again.
Bergdorf Goodman is open just for Magna. Craig calls it a “museum for fashion,” which seems to be right on target. Tana and Kendra are loving this. Kendra says that she thought she saw a price tag for $129, but it was really for $1,129, and it was on a tank top. This reminds me of the time a friend and I were in New York and went to a store (I think it was the Ralph Lauren store) just for fun. We saw a pajama tank top that cost about that much.
Bren and Craig try on the same suit. The man tending to them thinks it’s funny that out of everything in the store, they’re going to get the same suit. Craig says that Tana is great, and knows how to be a good leader. The team drinks champagne as Tana laughs about being a queen bee in an interview. She says that she’s just a hick from Iowa, but she’ll take people down.
Back in the suite, Chris notes that one of the three remaining Magna members is going home. Alex says that they did a good job, but things fell apart during the presentation. He interviews that he thinks it’s Angie’s fault, since she couldn’t handle the pressure. Angie acknowledges that she didn’t do that great, but she thinks that it’s Alex’s fault that they didn’t get to the presentation on time. She also thinks it’s “pathetic” that Chris did so poorly as the accountant.
Angie, Chris, and Alex head to the boardroom. Trump asks Alex what went wrong. Alex asks if he wants the failures from the beginning. Angie says that the presentation went horribly, and she knows that she didn’t do well. She tells Trump about being late and forgetting the jacket. Alex thinks that that’s Angie’s fault, because she was responsible for the presentation. Angie thinks that she was given too much responsibility.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
