Later on, Kathy decides that in addition to buying stuff for the school, they're probably going to have to clean it, too. Lucky for Kathy, then, she has her cleaning lady (and BFF) Minerva to take along with them. Minerva's super-psyched to go, and she and Kathy seem genuinely close, but again: the joke is that the Latina cleaning lady is going to Mexico with them so she can clean?
So we're in Mexico with Kathy, Team Griffin, Minerva, and Woz's assistant, Julie. I'm just gonna keep waiting for the episode when Julie and Tom get drunk and end up making out. Oh, the regret! So the first order of business is how badly Kathy burned her face when she fell asleep in the sun. She totally owns it, but holy shitballs. And then there's more bad news, as Woz had to have an infected tooth pulled, so he won't be able to make it. Kathy interviews -- with a metric ton of pancake makeup on her poor red face -- that Woz sent a hot Mexican Apple employee named Patricio down in his stead. Yeah...that's an upgrade. Sorry, Woz.
After a bit of Kathy-trying-to-drive hilarity, Team Griffin rolls up upon the school. And by "school," I mean "three aluminum-walled warehouses that look like a stiff breeze could knock them over." Kathy interviews that this was a worse situation than she thought it'd be. She's starting to look like this is one stunt she probably should have reconsidered. Or at least planned better.
After the commercial, Kathy actually clears something up for me: the only thing she's responsible for renovating is the library, which she's still going to call the "Kathy Griffin Leadership Academy." Okay, that makes me feel better. I think they can pull off a library. Kathy, via her translator, Jennifer, introduces herself to the class. The reaction is tepid at best. The kids are totally not impressed by Kathy's meager celebrity. Kathy beats me to my own joke about the kids being scared of her "crazy, sunburned face." Though she doesn't mention the kids screaming "Mala roja!" and running away, so maybe she didn't entirely steal my thunder.
She has Patricio ask who has computers at home (no one) and who knows what the internet does (also no one). Kathy laments an entire classroom ignorant of internet porn. The kids are completely uninterested in Kathy but want to see how the cameras work. So Kathy's remarkably attractive camera crew gives a few demonstrations and the kids are happy -- but still not into Kathy in the slightest -- and it's all a very good start. Until they move on to the library.
