Music that does not at all infringe on the copyright held by the owners of "Dueling Banjos" plays as we flip back and forth between Troy on the mic and Amy on the mic. At times, they seem to be talking at the same time, which is...really not good. Katrina says that she doesn't think the screaming was so helpful, and they're "missing something." And what specifically does she think they're missing? "Shock value."
Right on cue, doors onto the casino floor open, and a cage holding a white tiger is wheeled out. Everyone in the casino turns to watch, including Nick and Katrina, both of whom look a bit chagrined at this spectacle that is not their own. Nick finds himself with the microphone in his hand as the tiger is wheeled into the vicinity, and he says, "Please direct your attention to the 2003..." His voice trails off. "Well, I can't really beat a tiger," he says, and flips off the mic. Hee. Kwame interviews that "the tiger was fuckin' phenomenal." He compares bringing out the tiger to the psychological lift you get from dunking on the other team in basketball. He also calls it "a very Donald Trump thing to do," which I agree with. Only Trump would have had his name shaved into the tiger's fur. Bill, still in glass-half-empty mode, notes that although the tiger caused a lot of excitement, it also took people away from gambling. He's right, but it would rob from the teams equally, so I'm not sure it really hurts Protégé competitively.
