Because...Trump! He shows up and asks how the teams did. The guy tells him that one team did great, and the other team...tried to do great. Heh. The teams are called back in. The Pontiexecutive starts with Net Worth, telling them that he appreciates how they tried to make a good message, but it just wasn't there in the final product. Chris looks at the floor. The information also isn't persuasive, particularly. On the other hand, Magna "delivered just exactly what [they] needed." He praises the brochure rather extravagantly, and winds up breaking the news that Pontiac will actually be using it to promote the car. Trump is clearly impressed. So Magna is the "slam-dunk winner" of the task. Trump congratulates them on the good work they did. Kendra tells us that she felt "so ecstatic," because she had had to do the entire thing by herself. Trump reminds her that next week, she will be exempt. And their reward will be basketball with Isaiah Thomas and some Knicks. Net Worth, on the other hand, will head for the Boardroom.
Net Worth sits around drinking. Apparently, this was some stupid "just the boys" night before one of them got, you know, bounced. Chris, apparently already a way into his evening of intoxication, half-slurs that he's still unhappy that they weren't able to pull it off. He says he doesn't understand how Magna managed to be more creative. "And they were," he says. "Let's be honest." "Kicked our ass," Alex agrees. Chris interviews that seven losses will not look good in the Boardroom. Now sporting a mint-green hat-and-scarf combo (!), Chris tells us that he tried hard to prove himself to Trump, and it didn't work.
