"Pink Is the New Black"
- January 14
Last time we got the first taste of Trump L.A. and it
was spicy. Martin is gone, but Heidi as winning P.M. is
still in charge. Can she make it 2 for 2?
Frank returns and alleviates his teams worries that no
one would come back and everyone seems quite happy that
Martin is gone. Frank is in ecstasy. For the first time
in his life, he got to feel what it was like to truly be
alive and he is pumped to get back in the game.
Meanwhile, Heidis team is worried that their opponents
are now out for blood. Should they be worried? This is
reality TV people. Of course they should be.
Andi calls from Mr. Trumps office and notifies the
candidates to meet Trump for their next task. In Santa
Monica, the Trumpster poses the next task.
The teams will need to design a swimwear line for Trina
swimwear. The team that makes the most money in sales
And there is an added twist. The winning team will be
exempt from the next task. Big time safety is on the
Nicole Steps up to lead the newly named Team Arrow and
quickly Carey jumps in with a few ideas. He is convinced
that they need to go chic and upscale. He wants spandex
short cut trunks for the men and the rest of the team is
caught off guard. Apparently they do not believe that
the attire Carey would wear fit standard America. They
cite that his ties to the gay community may be part of
the issue, but they let him run with it.
Kinetic is butting heads as P.M. Heidi and Marisa are
disagreeing on a 2 piece. Heidi quickly makes a decision
and lets Marisa have her way.
Back at Arrow much discussion is directed toward the
skin tight pink shorts Carey is sporting as their first
swimsuit. No one think it will sell well other than
Carey, but no one will put their foot down. Nicole goes
around and asks for price points and Michelle refuse to
put in her two cents. Her co-workers call her out on
being afraid of being blamed in the boardroom, but this
does not result in her contributing.
Its time for the fashion show. Kinetics up first.
Their swimwear takes advantage of pastel tones but is
generally conservative. Its designed to appeal to the
masses and looks decent.
Carey however thinks that the designs are a hot mess.
Can Arrow do better? Not really, their swimsuits are
similar except for Carey pink special. No one really
seems to get it. Additionally, with Carey and Nicole as
models who knows if their sales were impacted.
Here are the sales totals:
Arrow is told that they lost on mens swimwear where
only one was purchased and that swimsuit only sold $350.
And now for the kicker. The reward for Kinetic? A trip
to the playboy mansion! (
and immunity for the next task
if anyone cares about that)
Arrow is back in their tents and they are hurting bad.
Frank is personally nauseous. Tim is attacking Michelle
as very few people seem to be connecting with her.
Michelle opens up and says that she is not trying to put
people off and does want to work through this. Lets see
if she gets the chance.
Trump attacks Arrow on their mens swimwear. The fingers
get pointed at Carey and Carey tries to explain that 3
looks needed to be presented. A gay look, a metrosexual
look, and a masculine look. Trump jostles Carey for
reasons and he has no good ones. Then Carey deflects to
Michelle saying that she is a weak link. Michelle asks
why and no one can come up with a task related reason
for firing her.
Time to go down the line. Most everyone would fire
Carey, 2 would fire Michelle, but James would fire
Nicole. Nicole becomes incensed at this and asks why and
James babbles under the pressure saying that Nicole is a
great motivator, but
Trump finishes James thought
saying that it was Nicoles responsibility as P.M. to
stomp down a bad idea.
Nicole calls back Carey and Michelle to the board room.
Trump, Heidi and Ivanka only seem to want to know
whether or not Carey was fully responsible for the pink
As the candidates come back in Carey speaks up and takes
credit for the pink suit saying that Mr. Trump should
respect people that are willing to take risks.
Trump cant see how the pink suit could sell.
Carey insists that there is a market for the suit.
Trump says the market would be less than 1% of men that
could wear it.
Carey says that it is high fashion and that it could
sell. More so, if his team had spoken against the suit
he would have scrapped it and started over.
Michelle denies this and agrees with Trump that the suit
was rammed down their throat.
Nicole remains utterly quiet the entire time, and with
Ivanka cant get off of the fact that the swimsuit was
just too narrowly targeted considering you were selling
to buyers, not consumers.
Trump agrees and thats it. Trump gives Carey the suit
as a present, but Carey, Youre Fired!
With that Arrow takes another hit and next week they
will be competing amongst themselves while Kinetic
enjoys the high life. Will anyone on Arrow step up and
prove to be a threat to take the title? Well find out
next time with the help of the Laker Girls!
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.
will Donald Trump choose as his next Apprentice?
