They tell the guys the same thing, and use the word "treasure," so Mark thinks it's perfect to go with pirates. As Tomisue's talking about how much kids and teenagers like it, Busey pipes up, "It gives you a sexual feeling." The Australian Gold folks aren't impressed, and neither is Backbone. Rich asks the CEOs if they've ever used pirates; they haven't. After the executives leave, Rich tells his team he's not sure the pirate thing will work, but Mark and Meat Loaf are committed and they move ahead with it. Lil Jon's in charge of costumes and props with Busey. Lil Jon realizes he's just baby-sitting and keeping Busey out of everyone else's way so they can get work done.
ASAP. La Toya decides to go with a beach theme and to put a totally gold man and woman in there, from head to toe. Nene's not sure it's creative enough, and doesn't quite understand it. La Toya's like, "Just make it fun." Hope volunteers to be one of the gold people, but La Toya tells her "just the models for now, okay?" La Toya interviews that Hope could have been a model, but she needed her to work on funding and shopping. Hope interviews that she's just going to lay low since she offered to be the model that she is, and La Toya told her no. Star and La Toya get into an argument because La Toya wants twelve banners, which costs more than twice of their entire printed budget. La Toya's like, "I want them all," and Star tries to explain the concept of a budget to her. La Toya just thinks this is all more confirmation that everyone is out to get her.
Backbone. Mark, Rich, and Meat Loaf show up at the fabricators' to show them what they'd like. They want their box to be covered with planks, they'd like a mast with a crow's nest, and in the center will be the treasure with Australian Gold coming out of it. The fabricators nod, totally bored. Hope, Nene, and Marlee have to go buy props and costumes. In the van, though, they realize they have no idea what they're doing or what they're supposed to buy. Star and La Toya show up at their construction room. Star's going to work on graphics with the graphic artist, leaving La Toya to offer instructions to the fabricator. She asks him what they're building, and he's like, "Whatever you'd like." She tells him the theme is a beach with palm trees and koala bears. They have no clue what she wants because, guess what? She doesn't have a clue.
