We skip over Bill and Carolyn’s input and go right to Bryce, Lee, and Lenny returning to the boardroom. Trump asks why Bryce didn’t bring Charmaine and Tarek. Bryce says that he was the one who approved everything. The team worked hard and did everything together. They discuss Lee again. Bryce says that he has to stand up for what he believes him. Trump decides that Bryce is taking responsibility for everything since he’s giving Charmaine and Tarek a bye. Carolyn says that they really missed the mark. She doesn’t get Bryce’s logic. That makes two of us.
Bryce says that if he can’t blame one person for the loss, he has to go to the one person who didn’t contribute as much, and that’s Lenny. He defends his team and the jingle, saying that theirs was good and they lost fair and square. Trump says they lost to better music. Bryce won’t shut up. Trump adds that they were late to the meeting and that may have affected the executives’ decision. He says again that Bryce should have brought in Charmaine. Bryce says that Charmaine’s positive qualities outweigh her negative qualities. Trump asks what Lee and Lenny did wrong. Bryce says they didn’t contribute. Carolyn asks what he contributed. Bryce says he basically did everything. Then he should be blamed for everything! Why doesn’t he get it? Carolyn implies the same, adding that Bryce should just ask to be fired.
Trump says that Bryce shouldn’t have brought in Lee instead of Tarek and Charmaine. He was also late to the meeting. Therefore, he’s fired. Finally. Thank God.
In the cab, Bryce says that the captain has to go down with the ship. He’s proud of himself. He adds that someone had to go. If he’d brought in Tarek or Charmaine, one of them might be fired. Yeah, that’s because they screwed up. Bryce didn’t want them to get into a catfight in the boardroom. Because when I think catty, I think Charmaine. I don’t think Bryce understands that the point of the boardroom is to bring in people who could get fired instead of you. The whole point of the show is not to get fired. Bryce continues that he had to bring in two people; he brought in Lee because he knew he was safe. Bryce just doesn’t get it. He thinks the right person was fired (finally, we agree on something!) and he hopes the team pulls together. He adds that the best candidate to be the apprentice is in the cab. I wish the driver had turned around and said, “Thanks, buddy!”
Bryce starts his exit interview by talking about how much he rocks. He went on the show because he wanted to work for Trump, not write a jingle. What did he expect? For Pete’s sake, the very first task in the first season was selling lemonade! Synergy had more of a song and appealed to a younger crowd, and Bryce thinks that’s why they won. He’s glad that everyone did what he asked them to do. Including Charmaine. Who he blamed anyway. Is this over yet? There wasn’t one person to blame, so the blame fell back on Bryce. He decided he had to be a man and take responsibility. And then whine about it in the cab.
Bryce says he didn’t have to manipulate or backstab because he’s confident in his own skills. Well, he’s not on Survivor. I don’t remember Bill, Kelly, Kendra, or Randal backstabbing or manipulating to win. Bryce knows what he wants in life and how to get it. So basically, he doesn’t want to work for Trump and he’s too punk rock for this. Got it. He liked being with the other candidates and considers it the most important part of the experience. The only person he didn’t get along with was Lenny, but they were okay by the end. The experience confirmed for Bryce that he knows what he wants. His current career excites him more than anything and he thinks it’s great to be content in something. And then he’s out of our lives, hopefully forever. Go be full of yourself somewhere else, Bryce.
In a preview for next week, Leslie is back in the suite and crying because she knows one of her friends is going to be fired. She tells Charmaine that it’s hard to lose someone, especially when that person is a teammate and friend. We see Trump fire Bryce again, then see Lee and Lenny return to the suite. Lenny interviews that Trump said he was on thin ice, so he’s going to be the project manager for the next task. Smart move.
