"The Razor's Edge" -
returns to the loft realizing he just had a close shave
and he is thankful for Summers errors. He knows 2nd is
only first in a long line of losers, so he is ready to
step up his game.
The next day Trump deliver the new task after
introducing Bill Rancic (Apprentice 1 Winner) and his
daughter Ivanka who will be acting as George and Carolyn
The Task: Develop a text messaging marketing campaign
for the new 5+1 blade Gillette Fusion Razor. The team
that gets their catch word texted the most time will win
and someone on the other team will be fired.
Synergy starts brainstorming and Stacy can not
understand how Brent functions in the business world.
Brent continually throws out every idea in his head and
the entire team is being hindered by his lack of focus.
Brent does not see it the same way and decides that he
needs to confront Stacy about her lack of openness to
his ideas. Bad move. Stacy marches back into the room
asking for support because she feels that she was
unrightfully threatened. Brent does not care and we have
a war on out hands.
Gold Rush is also brainstorming. Lee is ready to PM and
he is pushing the slogan Get closer with closer being
their texting word. Lenny doesnt care about the word
and is more concerned with marketing the word. Lenny
takes Charmaine and Leslie and started getting people to
text. The Russian seems to be a numbers man and he plans
to work early and often.
Pepi, who is the project manager overseeing the Synergy
Stacy v. Brent situation, decided that Brent needs to go
home. Brent is livid and reminds Pepi that he is not the
one in charge of deciding who gets fired, but Pepi
stands his ground. Shortly after Brents departure,
Synergy comes up with a game plan of wearing bath robes
and approaching people on the street. With this simply
idea, Synergy is ready to go.
Gold Rush is a team divided as well. Lenny, Charmaine
and Leslie are trying to hijack the team by demanding
that Lee bring everyone to Times Square to aid in the
street effort. Lee seems to want to go back to the suite
to plan and after much arguing, Lenny hangs up on Lee.
You would really think that adult could do business
together a little better.
The next morning, Roxanne wakes her team up after she
realizes her team is oversleeping while the other team
has already hit the streets.
Lee concedes to Lenny realizing that the game truly is
simply about numbers. Gold Rush is parked outside the
TKTS booth and they are hounding a captive audience.
Synergy on the other hand is making people avoid them
with the bathrobes. Brent who has re-joined the team is
now dancing in the streets to draw attention. Given his
brash nature, this works and creates about the only buzz
Synergy has had all day. Unfortunately this came late in
the day. Lets see how it affected the results:
Gold Rush - 683
Synergy - 458
Synergy goes down in defeat and Gold Rush, as a reward,
will be helping Career Gear a charitable organization
that outfits disadvantaged men in suits to make it
easier for them to get their footing in the business
As the boardroom brews, all of Synergy is preparing to
gang up on Brent. They are even ready to attack his
mental stability. If history repeats itself this will be
a bad decision, but only time will tell.
Trump wants to know why they lost and Pepi blames the
loss on Brents distracting antics. Brent claims to be a
star on the task and Trump points out that the other
team had 100 text messages before Synergy even started.
Brent points out that he would not even trust Pepi to
manage his sons 1st birthday party and that Pepi needs
to be fired or Mr. Trump will not get a single night of
Trump asks Sean who he would fire and he says Brent.
Allie agrees. Roxanne has a different opinion thinking
that they lost because of a lack of manpower and
organization and as a result she would fire Pepi.
Trump wants to know where the idea of bathrobes came
from. It was Michael and he tries to pawn the decision
off onto Pepi, but Trump isnt having it. Then as
another diversionary tactic, Michael brings up Brent
threatening Stacy and Donald is more than happy to
explore. He asks Stacy if she was threatened and in many
words she basically says no. Trump asks how as a
criminal defense attorney Brent could scare her and she
continues to state how Brent wagged a finger in her
Brent jumps in admonishing Stacy for how she
characterized the situation and Trump cuts him off
saying that no one on the team shows him respect anyway.
Trump asks for Pepis selections and he chooses, Brent,
Stacy and Michael. Trump then reveals that because the
loss was so bad that he is going to fire 2 people. This
could get interesting.
Bill thinks Stacy needs to go for her lack of
accountability and Ivanka thinks that while she does not
see Brent lasting much longer that Pepi had too much of
an opportunity to fix things for it to go overlooked.
The candidates re-enter and Trump lays down the law.
Brent you are a total disaster, Michael you did a
horrible job but in real estate, location is everything
and with that, Stacy, Youre Fired. Additionally, Pepis
lack of leadership was unforgivable and if neither he
nor Stacy can deal with Brent there is no way they could
handle being the Apprentice. Pepi, Youre fired.
Game, Set, Match. Stacy and Pepi are gone, but who will
leave next. Next week the candidates will be swimming
with the sharks. Lets see who will get the shark bite.
Eighteen men and women have been
chosen by the most powerful man in real estate for a 15-week
job interview, in which only one can be named president of one
of his companies.
