Kendra and Craig are waiting to see who will return from the boardroom. Thereís nothing new here - sorry! Basically Craig thinks he and Tana rock. Tana comes back.
The three head out to their interviews. Kendra says that today is a make it or break it day. Craig says that these interviews are the most important of his life. Tana says that they canít prepare, they just have to go in and be who they are.
There isnít a lot of additional footage during the interviews, but we do get to hear Tana talk a little more about her mother as an entrepreneur - Tana says that she wanted to be able to support the family in case something happened to Tanaís father. Craig stumbles over his answers, and ordinarily Iíd make fun of him, but I had a job interview last week in which the interviewer asked me what my last company did and I couldnít actually remember. Iím actually sympathizing with Craig for the first time ever. Someone take me to a doctor! Of course, the difference here is that I got the job and Craig is about to be fired. Oh, sorry, did I jump the gun?
Kendra is tough in her interviews. When Greg talks about Craigís numerous jobs, Craig jokes that itís a good thing he doesnít have the complete list. Ooh, bad move. Iím done sympathizing with him. Tana is asked how her skills from her current jobs will help her in Trumpís organization. She thinks that she has the skills to negotiate, and sheíll just have to learn the right lingo to negotiate in Trumpís business world. Kendra talks to Darlene about bending the rules, saying that at the end of the day, itís about putting more money into your business and creating more jobs. Darlene isnít sure about that. Split screen mania!
The execs gather in the boardroom with Trump, Carolyn, and George. To sum up: David says yea to Tana, okay to Kendra, and nay to Craig. He thinks that Tana is a capable leader, and he likes that Kendra and Craig both said that they would like to work with her. Apparently, everyone likes Tana, including Carolyn and Trump. Upstairs, everyone is packing.
Darlene says yea to Tana, nay to Craig, and isnít sure about Kendra. She mentions that she asked Kendra about bending the rules and Kendra implied that itís okay. Darlene was actually looking for a distinction between rules and guidelines.
Howard says yea to Kendra; his only drawback is that sheís young. He says nay to Craig (are you sensing a pattern here?), since he seemed to want to change the organization. Tana is okay, but he doesnít think that she would do well in the city. Howard repeats that his only concerns about Kendra have to do with her age, so obviously thatís temporary.
Greg says nay to Craig, since he has no substance. He says that he presented Craig with an ethical dilemma about someone stealing from a company. Greg was obviously looking for him to say that stealing isnít right under any circumstances, but Craig didnít give a concrete answer. Wow, thatís bad. He doesnít think that Craig has much leadership potential.
Greg thinks that Kendra is good, and she especially plays the game well. He asked her who she would want to go with if she had to hop on a cross-Atlantic flight tonight. Kendra picked Craig, because she thinks she could learn the most from him. However, Greg isnít sure if Kendra just said that because she sees Tana as a threat. Heís not sure about Tana being a leader in Trumpís organization, but he liked her and thinks that she would be a good team player.
I think that Craig, Kendra, and Tana approached the interviews in very different ways. Craig seemed to give the answers he thought the execs wanted to hear. Kendra seemed to give the opposite of the answers she thought most people would give. (I mean, wouldnít you expect her to say that sheíd want to fly with Tana, because they get along?) Tana fell somewhere in the middle, mostly answering honestly and from her heart. Let that be a lesson - donít interview like Craig!
When this episode first aired, it looked like Trump sent the execs away, brought the candidates in, and fired Craig without much preamble. Thanks to the extras, we now know that thatís not true. Thereís a lot of stuff in here that didnít air. We start with Trump asking the execs if they noticed any personal issues the candidates have with each other. David says that Kendra and Craig donít get along; each said that he or she would fire the other if given the opportunity. Apparently this is part of why David changed his attitude towards Kendra. He thinks that their fighting is childish.
Darlene mentions that Tana and Craig are friends, so Kendra is sort of an outsider. However, Kendra told her that Craig has been condescending. Trump says that others have said that, too. (Iím guessing heís thinking of Audrey.) George and Carolyn thank the execs for their help, saying that they were very perceptive. The execs leave and Trump says that he thought they were terrific. Carolyn agrees - they gave good information and answered some of the questions she had. She points out that they all agreed about Craig. George says that the execs were helpful and definitely solidified what the three of them had already come up with.1 2 Next-->
