Smackdown" - February 18
Dont Lie!! Thats what
Surya is asking for, but will Arrow give him the real
truth in the boardroom.
Back at camp Arrow is wondering who is coming back
from the boardroom. They feel that if Aaron gets fired
that Surya should be forced to step up and be the next
Be careful what you ask for. Surya comes back, Aaron
doesnt and true to form, Arrow appoints Surya their new
PM. Should be interesting
On the tarmac, Trumps plane has landed and he is ready
to give the candidates their next task.
Week 6 Task:
Priceline wants the candidates to create marketing
campaigns to be run in the mall to get them to sign up
for the Priceline Name Your Price sweepstakes. The team
with the most sign ups will win.
Yes, thats it. These tasks seem to be getting more and
more simplistic, but will anyone innovate and take this
to the next level.
Aimee is confident that she can learn to be a better
leader. She recognizes that her win last week wasnt
necessarily due to her best effort.
Her team agrees. The rest of kinetic thinks that Aimee
is not getting it as she makes illogical delegations of
the staff. Kinetics flaws may open a window for Arrow.
Arrow is touring the mall and eventually settles into a
conference room to work. Surya is delegating everyone
individual tasks such as marketing and staffing, and
Surya refuses to let more than one person work on any
given task. He wants individual ideas, but who knows if
he will get any.
At Kinetic, Heidi is showing off Kinetics work to the
Priceline representatives. They are raffling off $1000
Priceline vouchers every 10 minutes and decorated their
kiosk with a Hawaiian theme.
Then comes the octopus. There is a pink octopus on top
the kiosk, and Aimee doesnt like it. Yes, because a
pink octopus is going to make you lose the task.
Arrow is hitting the ground running out in the community
handing out flyers and escorting mall customers to the
kiosk. Arrow is also raffling off travel vouchers, but
without the PM who has the vouchers they may have
problems. Wheres Surya? James absolutely doesnt know.
Neither does anyone else.
At Kinetic, Heidi and Angela are walking around and
trying to generate buzz and they are hitting the wall
fast. What wall? The language barrier. The mall has a
large Spanish speaking contingent and that is slowing
down the completing of the entry forms. Derek and Muna
are doing their best to fix this at the booths, but will
it be enough?
Arrow takes it and for one week they will not have to
Their reward will be taking surfing lessons at Santa
Monica Beach with pros followed by lunch at Gladstones.
Kinetic, however, will get to release the wolves and
attack Aimee at will.
Aimee wants to hold Jenn responsible for not taking any
action on the Spanish speaking population of the mall.
The rest of the team is sitting there quiet. There
probably all want to stab Aimee in the back, make that
in the front, on this one.
Jenn personally being the target thinks that this is a
load of crap. She refuses to go down without a fight and
doesnt buy Aimees but I still like you BS.
To the Boardroom!
Aimee starts off the meeting by saying that the main
problem was that the Spanish speaking contingent was not
catered to. Derek claims that the Spanish is a red
herring and feels that he and Muna covered it as best
they could. Aimee then redirects toward Jenn saying that
she delegated that responsibility and had no advance
knowledge of this potential hurdle.
Muna rolls her eyes. She says that anyone who walked
through the food court could tell that Spanish would be
a necessary skill to success. Aimee still maintains that
this was not her fault and in the end she chooses to
bring Jenn and Derek back into the boardroom.
The final 3 are in for some heat. Whos to blame? Trump
wants to know why everyone is against Aimee and Derek
feels that they have gone through the past 2 tasks with
an absent project manager.
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?
