The men hug back in the room, happy to get through by the skin of their teeth. They toast and then tune in to hear the women duke it out. Trump tells the ladies it's getting tough to fire people since everyone's so talented. He says he hates to fire people, and Star asks if he has to and asks to make an argument. Trump says it's not a good time to make that argument since they did a terrible job. She says she has to respect that, but she doesn't feel the men's team captured some of the elements of the task as well as they did. She says she's surprised and disappointed they lost. Eric reminds her they had a big advantage in numbers. Trump says the executives preferred the men's pitch and he thinks that's ultimately why they won. Back in the suite, they all fist bump and Lil Jon's like, "I told y'all." He knew they'd be too corporate. Star says she was responsible for the pitch, but she should "definitely not" be fired. Marlee says she had an advantage here because she's visual and she could see that her team's ad was better because the men did stuff they were told not to. Don points out they did the same thing: the cheesy bathtub photo, for example. He asks who did that, and Marlee quietly points to Nene.
Nene doesn't see her do it, but she steps up and says she directed that shoot, but that they came up with the concepts collectively and that none of the photos would have been put on the page without Star's approval. Trump asks if she's saying Star should be fired. She says she's not saying that, so he asks if he should fire her. She says no, but she won't say Star. He asks who she thinks should be fired, and she says she doesn't know. He asks La Toya, who says Star should be fired, as project manager. She says she has to be honest and tell him that, with Star, it's either her way or the highway. She designates and tells them what to do and they follow. "If Star didn't want anything on that page, it wouldn't have been on that page." Trump asks Marlee, who says La Toya. She says she's considering the entire run of the show, and La Toya hasn't contributed as much. Don says that might be fair about La Toya, but he could say the same thing about Hope. Marlee disagrees. Nene interrupts and says she understands what Marlee's saying, because La Toya is the weakest link going forward. She says she didn't say it before, because she was asked about this particular task. Trump says that for two tasks the executives have thought La Toya is the best person on the whole task. Star says La Toya makes a good public appearance.
