Trump says that he thinks Bren's writing was very bad, and he thinks Bren is better than that writing was. He thinks Alex saw that it was bad and did nothing. "You were sleeping," Trump nearly snorts. But then Trump moves to Chris, saying that Chris was the leader of the team, and the team was horrible. So Chris is...fired. The candidates get up and leave. And then you realize that Chris...is totally crying. Totally. In the "boo hoo hoo" sense. So Trump stops him. Chris turns back. Trump tells him he has two things to say. He even drags him over to the Trump side of the conference table so he can talk to him like a kid. Trump tells Chris first that he has to be careful about his temper -- advice I'm sure we all now wish Chris had followed. And second? Get off the tobacco. Trump makes him promise, which Chris does, because for whatever reason, the only thing Chris wants in the world is for Donald Trump to like him. Trump shakes his hand and tells Chris he'll be a big success, as Chris continues to cry. And then, finally, Chris leaves. Out in the lobby, Chris hugs his buds and prepares to go, at last. "It's all good," Chris says through his snorfles. That again! Finally, he gets on the down elevator. Back in the Boardroom, Trump says, "See, I think he's a good kid." Carolyn smiles ruefully and says, "He's a great kid." He is? Why? When was he great? Bleh. Trump says again that it was "time" for Chris to go, despite being "a good kid." A good kid who yells a lot, that is.
Chris gets into his taxi.
In his interview, Chris says that he wants to thank Trump, George, and Carolyn. And then he talks about how much he loves the guys from his team. And he thanks Trump again. Not a lot of purpose left in thanking Trump, there, Chris. It's over.
Next week: Last five. Stress! Tension! Conflict! More fighting! "Young lady"! Lying! They promise that "things are getting good."
