Episode 2 - January 12
On the last show, Davie took the fall - but the guys
think that Sam should have gone home. The men are
discussing this with the women while they are eating
dinner - and they are greeted by a very cocky Sam, who
say that David has departed. The women, seeing this,
want to make sure that they don't go to the Board Room,
while Sam says that he doesn't think that The Donald
gives second chances.
That night, while the men go to bed, the women decide to
select Amy as the next project manager. Omarosa and
Ereka get into another fight and Amy will only accept
the responsibility if Omarosa and Ereka cool off. Kristi
notices that those 2 just don't get along and while the
2 people are bickering, Amy is wondering how she got
into this mess.
The men are greeted with a call that they have a meeting
in an hour at the Deutsch Advertising company. Jason,
who used to work in advertising, says that he should be
the project manager - and the men elect him.
Both teams meet Donny Deutsch, and go into their
conference room. The task for this week is to create an
advertising campaign for one of Deutches' clients -
Marquis Jets. The teams have to create a paper and
television campaign, and Donny tells the team to not be
afraid to step out of the box. 'Swing for the fences -
and failure is not an option.' The winning team goes to
Boston for dinner, as they are taken there by, of
course, Marquis Jets. The losing team gets to go to the
Board Room and say bye-bye to one of their members.
The Donald's Business Tip for this week - "Don't
Negotiate with Underlings." Deal with the boss
whenever possible. Thanks you, Donald.
The women decide to listen to Donald's tip, and schedule
an appointment with the president of marketing at
Marquis Jets. Omarosa and Ereka both want to go, but Amy
knows that both women together spell trouble, so she
brings Ereka with her while Omarosa stays back with the
women to brainstorm. A visibly pissed Omarosa isn't
happy that Amy left them with nothing to do, but Kristi
decides that they should go to the airport and start on
On the men's side, Jason tells Bill to do creative,
Kwame to do the printing ads and then they meet
somewhere in the middle. Troy suggests to Jason that
they should talk to the clients in terms of what they
want, but Jason says that it's a waste of time and he
sends everyone out to get the job done. he then says
that he didn't have enough people to go to Marquis Jet.
Take a look at Donald's business Tip. Then take a look
at what the women did about it. Then take a look at what
the men did about it. By this point, it should be very
clear who wins and who gets fired. But we still have 40
minutes worth of show to recap, so let's go back to the
Amy and Ereka meet with the Marquis guys, who expect to
be wowed with the campaign. They will be wowed, all
right - Tammy decides to make a phallic campaign. "If
you buy a Marquis card, you're going to go up - you're
going to go way up." Uhhh....yeah. Omarosa once again
disagrees - and she talks to Tammy about it and is
worried that the campaign could offend the client. Tammy
shrugs her off and Omarosa now has another person that
she'd like to bitch at.
Speaking of shrugging off, the guys - specifically Jason
- are shrugging off Sam, who is trying to get his 2
cents in. The only problem is that no one wants to hear
Sam, who caused more than enough damage to his
reputation in terms of not being a team player i the
first episode. 'You ask Sam what time it is, he tells
you how to build a clock.' The men decide to go along
with the luxury campaign, which is a safe , if not
The women come back from the photo shoot, and Amy liked
the phallic idea. She makes it consistent as the
underbelly of the plane looks like a male's anatomy.
Omarosa, the only person who is not liking this, is
noting that Carolyn and George are staring at what they
are doing - and they don't seem too amused either.
Omarosa is hoping that for their sake, the women win.
The men are working on their plan - and Jason, not
wanting to be screwed by Sam, sends Sam to do small
menial tasks. Sam does what someone who is used to doing
big things would usually do when being faced with small
tasks - he falls asleep. Sam excuses himself from the
table, and curls up in a little ball on the ground. This
does not amuse Jason, who says 'If Sam was working for
me, when he fell asleep, I would have fired him.'
Someone is going to be fired as we fast forward to the
presentation. The women believe that the card is not
just a product, it's an experience. For their
presentation for the airlines, the women do another
smart thing as they dress like stewardesses, with a
airline logo on the top of the shirt. Omarosa is the
spokeswoman, who is a team player, as she starts hawking
an idea that she wants no part of. "It's damn good." she
says, as she displays the photos. Donnie's reaction?
"I'm not going to say what I think of it. I don't know
what you want me to think of it, but I'm kind of
Omarosa continues, as Donnie is grinning and bobbing his
head up and down. He continues as Heidi saunters across
the desk top showing off cleavage. "You can have the
greatest presentation - but if you can't present it
well, it's worthless." Donnie seems to like the
presentation. "You've set the women's movement back
around 17 hundred years." laughs Donnie, but the clients
wanted wow - and they got wow.
What the men are getting is frustrated, after they can't
get their act together in terms of presentation. Bill is
trying to help them and Jason seems like he appreciates
it. "Marquis Jets - redefining first class." They use a
Power Point presentation with charts and graphs, but to
put it blunt, it's boring, and I can understand why Sam
fell asleep for the presentation.
Donnie's group talk about Steak Vs. Sizzle. The Men had
the steak and the meat of it, while the women had the
sizzle and the eye candy. Donnie makes his decision, and
based on the guidelines that they were give - to swing
for the fences - and the addition of them talking to the
president, who had no problems with them swinging for
the fences, the women win the campaign.
The women toast on the limousine to the plane and they
are celebrating all the way to Boston and back. Omarosa,
who probably wishes that they left her back in NYC, is
having a splitting headache and is disregarding
Omarosa's request to quiet down. Back on the limo,
Omarosa is sleeping and someone tries to wake her up.
She immediately goes after Ereka and Tammy, and the
women realize that Omarosa is alienating herself from
the rest of the group. "Being a bitch for the rest of
your life is your problem."
How paranoid is Omarosa? Ereka, in defense of Omarosa
calling her a child, says that it's the pot calling the
kettle black. Omorosa then accuses her of being racist,
and Omarosa is well on her way on the path of delusion.
Omarosa is clearly not playing well with the women in
the sandbox, and she is in the position that Sam is in.
Fortunately for her, the Donald decides, not the girls,
because if it was up to them, she would be on the same
flight as David going home.
None of the women are in danger of going home - but Sam
is, and he's worried to the point that Troy is concerned
about his health. Troy sticks a cowboy hat on Sam and
tells him to meditate. Jason will be taking Sam with him
- but he doesn't know who else to pick. Meanwhile, the
guys know that Donald will be going after him for not
having a meeting with the president - but will it be
In defeat, Sam is asking Jason on who he thinks is going
to be fired, in an obvious attempt to get info. Jason
isn't telling and is cursing Sam out. For dinner, Sam
may be offering a piece of burnt apartment, as he is
successful in setting his meal on fire.
It's time to go to the Board Room. Nick thought that
Jason did a great job. Kwame thought that it was Jason's
decision to not speak to the president, and Donald
called Jason's lack of calling a terrible decision. Sam
knows that Jason will select him as one of the people to
be eliminated, because no one likes him. Jason is indeed
going to pick Sam to come with him - but he also picks
Nick - the guy who just defended him. Wha?
George and Carolyn want to get rid of Sam - but Donald
astutely points out that Sam (who he thinks will be a
huge success or a disaster) is not the reason why the
mission failed. When the guys come in, an angry Nick
comes in firing on all cylinders as to ask Jason why he
was selected. Jason had no answer for him then and he
just said that he had to make a decision. "Why? Because
it has to be somebody." Donald was upset that Nick was
selected and Donald tells Nick that he's not going to be
This leaves Sam and Jason, who are fighting to remain in
the game. Sam and Jason are arguing about what Sam did -
and Trump calls Sam a disaster and that everyone hates
him. But the problem is that Jason made a mistake by not
talking to the president, and that, coupled with him
selecting Nick for no reason, is enough to eliminate him
from the game. Jason gets fired and Sam, despite
sleeping in the fetal position, is still in the game.
But for how long?
