Episode 9 - March 4
was the one person that I stood by because I believes in
what she stood for. Now, it's just about me and the
That comes from Katrina, who was not happy that Ereka is
gone. She's even less happy when Omarosa is smirking
that one of her enemies are gone - and she's still
there. When the men come back, Nick and Bill talked to
Katrina in her room - and they even admitted that if any
combination of a her and a guy were in the Board Room,
the guy would be gone. They also told her that it was
bad, to the point that Ereka wouldn't shake Bill's hand
when she left. It seems like they are smoothing out
things so that they can work as a team...
...which is good, because the teams will now be meeting
in front of the Metropolitan Museum. Trump tells both
teams that Versacorp, since they are down 5 people to 3,
will be able to select someone from Protege. Nick, of
course, infatuated with Amy, selects her - but Trump
thinks it's a bad move, since he notes that she is the
only person moving from team to team, which indicates to
him that she is the reason for the success. He has a
point for another reason - Amy has NEVER been on a team
that has gone to the Board Room - and if that continues,
no one will be able to come close to her. "Maybe what
you're telling me is that I should give her the job
To keep Amy out of the Board Room, the teams will be
selecting one of a selection of artists. After the
artist is chosen, the team will then have an art gallery
exposition, and the team that makes the most amount of
money from selling their artwork wins. "This is a tough
one, because what makes good art is entirely subjective.
There is no market value, so you need to think this one
Kwame, who is Protege's project manager, says that it's
going to be tough. They start with Giles, who believes
in Jackson Pollock style of art - and he likes to put
his body hair and toenail clipping in it as well. Ewwwww.
He then invites them all to touch his art and body
parts. Ewwwwwwww. Heidi, when stuck with dealing with
Omarosa again, looks like she'd rather eat the art,
toenail clippings and all.
Versacorp's first artist visit was Andre, who's art was
admired by both Nick and Katrina. He does nature
paintings which do look very nice. He uses paint and
weaves a story around it, in an intelligent,
sophisticated way. Bill and Amy meet Leah who paints art
out of snapshots of her life. They both fall in love
with her work as well.
Protege meets Meghan, who Heidi finds passionate - and
creepy. She sells peculiar extreme items, like paintings
called "Psyche and Smut", about a girl named psyche and
her sister called smut - in a city ruled by frog
concubines. Uh.... yeah. What makes her attractive? Her
average painting price - $4,000. According to Kwame -
"If we sell 3 to 4 of Meghan's work, we're going to win
this easily." Yeah - If you can SELL three to four
Trump's advice for the week: "You've Gotta Believe".
You have to believe in what you sell. If you don't, then
you'll never be able to sell it, and you'll be
Everyone wants to go after Meghan - except Omarosa, who
wants them to go after Leah. She is overrule, and they
go with Macabre Meghan. "Art is all about risk - let's
take a risk." Omarosa? "I'm going to take the frog
Nick and Katrina realize that Andre already has a fan
base, while Leah is an up and coming artist. With the
team tied at 2, Nick makes the executive decision with
Andre. Amy is not thrilled with the decision, but Nick
is the Project Manager, and that's who they select -
knowing that if they lose, Nick is probably done.
Protege starts the gallery at 7am - and George
acknowledges that they took a risk. Heidi is doing her
homework and asks Leah about what the work is. She gives
her a bizarre explanation, which is making Heidi's head
spin. Omarosa's head is also spinning, and she wants to
get food. Heidi says that they have time for a quick
bite, but Omarosa says that her head hurts and she needs
to take her time. Unbeknownst to Omarosa, Heidi called
Kwame, and he is listening to all of the bickering
that's going on. "She always has a headache when it's
task time. When it's reward time, she doesn't have a
headache. he is such a lunatic bitch." It gets worse
when the women are eating and it ends in both of them
cursing each other out and eating in separate areas.
It's getting so bad that even Troy and Kwame are making
fun of Omarosa.
It's the night of the gallery, and both teams are
waiting for their guests to arrive. Bill is concerned,
but Nick tells him that it's always slow for the first
hour and reaffirms that it's going to be ok. Nick says
that if you're the manager, that they should never let
them see you flustered. Sure enough, during hour #2,
they get people - and they get a couple of sales. Nick
talks about his he is making everything ok, but they are
Now, as for Protege, thy are not doing as well.
Actually, they are sucking wind, as they haven't been
able to sell ANYTHING. The people who are selling the
work are not doing a good job in terms of that, as Troy
tells one of the buyers, "The process of this painter
far exceeds my comprehension." Uh...yeah. Omarosa is
enjoying this, as she is the art expert, and she is
watching people screw up painting after painting. Heidi
is saying how one painting, which has a sliding section,
is a toilet bowl cover, while Meghan says that it's a
fireplace covering. Oops.
It comes to this point - Madeline, who is the head of
the gallery tells the group that despite them being
MBA's, they lack the communication skills to relay the
meaning of the art to the potential buyers. That's
pretty much what Versacorp has been doing that Protege
hasn't. Omarosa complains about the art and makes a
mention that none of this was her idea. She does sell a
piece for $869, and Kwame thinks that they need to sell
a few more pieces, since $869 is 'cutting it close'.
Did they sell a few more pieces? In the Board Room, The
Donald asks the teams who picked out their artists. Nick
said that he made an executive decision for his team,
and Amy and Bill, even though they disagreed at first,
thought that Andre was amazing from both the sales and
aesthetic pattern. Kwame said that it was a team
decision, and that they selected the artist due to the
high price point, even though they weren't fond of the
artist. Just the $869. We already know that Versacorp
sold more than that - we just didn't find out how much
more - until now - 8 pieces for $13,600. That is a
blowout, and Donald even says that the losing team was
The winning project manager - Nick - gets 10 minutes to
speak with Donald Trump. The losing team - which Amy
once AGAIN was not on - will be losing one of their on
members. Nick was happy that he went with his gut, as he
knows that if he lost, he would have been canned. In his
meeting with Trump, he asks him what he's looking for.
Donald says energy - and he is impressed with Nick's. He
said that he learned a lot from his dad, and he stressed
the relationship with his parents. Donald tells him to
keep it going, and regardless of how it turns out, Trump
thinks that he is going to be successful.
We now turn our attention to the unsuccessful team - but
Heidi is getting comfort that her mom is doing well. She
knows that Kwame is taking her to the Board Room. The
question is that is he going to take Troy because he
likes Omarosa, or Omarosa for strategic purposes?
Omarosa talks to Bill, wondering how Troy contributed,
and she thinks that Kwame won't take her because she was
his advisor and went against her advice - but if he did
nominate her, she would 'have to take a brother down'.
As for Heidi? Every time her team has lost, she has been
in the Board Room. "If I lost and I was the project
manager, I will have to nominate myself just to be
At the Board Room, Donald says that this has been the
biggest disaster so far. Kwame says that he took a risk
- and that Omarosa was the lone dissenter. Trump praised
her, but George said that it wouldn't have mattered in
terms of who they selected because they didn't work as a
team. Heidi says that Omarosa wasn't working with them,
and she defended herself that she had a concussion.
Trump goes after Omarosa with the concussion, and Kwame
backs Heidi's assessment that Omarosa is overdramatic as
he brings the two ladies with him, saving Troy.
She is not helping her overdramatic cause afterwards, as
she hugs Kwame and cries about her concussion. Heidi is
sitting on the couch staring at this. Omarosa realizes
that she may be in trouble, and she makes one last
dramatic effort by breaking into Donald Trump's office -
which is something that you NEVER do to ANYBODY. She has
to backpedal and accused Heidi of cursing her out, which
caused the delay in working.
Donald tells Heidi that she has an edge, but the
competition is about leadership and getting along with
the team - something which Omarosa has said from day one
that it didn't matter. The Donald doesn't like excuses,
and the lunch coupled with Omarosa's behavior solidified
the deal. Omarosa, described as having a huge chip on
her shoulder, thanks The Donald for the opportunity and
then walks out of the courtroom (A La Camille in Next
Top Model) and doesn't say good-bye to anyone as she
slinks to the elevator. It's not like she would say
anything to Heidi, and Kwame looks like a huge 120 pound
weight has been lifted from his back.
Heidi will be celebrating - but how long will that last
when someone pisses off Carolyn? We'll see if upsetting
a woman is worse than upsetting a man on the next
