Now, Raj has the pleasure of explaining that he turned the four-bedroom house into a three-bedroom house. He says that he wishes the visual effect could express how close the place is to being great. "Me, too," says one of the women appraisers ominously. In an interview, Raj says that because this is a real estate task and he's a real estate guy, it's "a must-win situation." Hey, Elizabeth was in one of those last week. Maybe you'll get karmically rewarded for how much help you were to her.
The Boardroom. The teams file in, including their previously fired "assistants." Trump enters. He asks how they liked the real estate business, and Sandy says it was lots of work. And math is hard! NotGeorge first reports that the Apex house was originally appraised at $385,000. After the work, it was appraised at $412,500; that's an increase of 7.14 percent. So after you take out the $20,000 they presumably spent, they managed to make an overall gain of $7500 on the whole deal. Mosaichaus, on the other hand, was originally appraised at $390,000 -- it's good that they got similar properties, I'd point out. After the work, it was appraised at $430,000, for an increase of 10.26 percent. Now, when you look at those numbers, it kind of sounds surprisingly close, considering how bad things looked for Apex. But Mosaic made a gain, taking out the seed money, of $20,000. That's a 100 percent return on the money, as opposed to the 37.5 percent return that Apex got. So it really wasn't all that close -- Mosaic made almost three times the profit on the seed money that Apex did. The team is happy, including Rob, who's extra-happy. Trump actually congratulates Rob on his great attitude, being fully invested even though he doesn't have much to gain. Mosaic's reward will be visiting Denise Rich at her glorious house, flying there by helicopter -- and Rob and Jen C. are going, too. But after that, those two will "get lost." And the most delicious part is that Stacie and Baldford get to come to the Boardroom with Apex to give "advice." Hee. Awesome.
So, Mosaic heads out on the helicopter for its reward. Sandy says she's never been on a helicopter before. So this will be a whole new adventure in nausea for her, as it is for me. They fly out over the city, and Wes comments about the great view, and calls New York "the greatest city in the world," the better to suck up to Sars, who is helpless against his charms anyway. ["You jus' jellus. CALL ME, WES!!!1!" -- Sars] Wes says that this gave "a taste of what it would be like to be Donald Trump." Except that if he were Donald Trump, he would have less real hair and more babes. The helicopter approaches the Hamptons, and they learn that the houses they're looking at are worth 19 or 20 million dollars. Wow, I'm totally not buying one, then. After landing, they are transferred into a limo, which pulls up at the home of Denise Rich, participant in scandal and songwriting. She lets them "enjoy the grounds," though apparently not her actual house. The team wanders around the pool area and such, and then they even get to go to the beach. Andy gives a nice interview about how they worked really hard on this task, which made the reward a lot more...well, rewarding. They kick sand around, and predictably, one of the women reports that she feels fat. Last one to declare a negative body image is a rotten egg!
