Now it's time for the teams to be evened up, lest Troy and Kwame be whittled down to nothing. Troy and Kwame are told to pick a member of VersaCorp to kidnap. Now, from their perspective, of course, they can't take Amy, because Trump complained about that last time somebody did it. And they can't take Katrina, because she's bitchy and hates Troy and that's just...well, that's a ticket on the train to Bitchyville, Population Katrina. So they're stuck with Bill or Nick, and unsurprisingly, they select Boyfriend Bill -- who looks kind of bummed, but who I think should have seen this coming. Trump asks them why they didn't choose Amy, and Troy obediently says, "Amy's got enough kudos as it is." She smiles stiffly. I don't think Amy thinks she can ever get enough kudos. Trump affirms that he approves of their choosing somebody else for once.
Trump's next order of business is to crow about the incredible beauty of the wall of water, which looks like it was inspired by a very unfortunate landlord-tenant situation, but which he claims has been very favorably reviewed, architecturally speaking. He also claims that people "come from all over the world" to come to Trump Tower. I can't help but wonder if he's claiming credit for the entire New York City tourism trade, because...let's face it -- he would. Oh, he throws in a "yooge" or two in there, which is great, because I can't help but admire a guy who can continue to use his iconic expressions with no sense of shame at all. Where would Dick Vitale be today if he had stopped saying "Gimme the rock!" when it started to get annoying? Trump goes on to tell the candidates that the Trump Taj Mahal is the number one hotel in Atlantic City, and you can almost hear the asterisk after this sentence pop up with a little subliminal noise, like "[Bink!]" But anyway, as Trump explains the task, the candidates will have to "come up with a promotional idea," but based on the actual published dossier that NBC posted on its site, the task is much more specific than that. The instructions they actually receive are to set up "a game of chance or skill" for people to register for. They then will get credit for all the people who sign up for their game, and all the money those people spend gambling after that. The game will run from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM the next day. The winning team will be whichever one makes the most money in total from its registered gamblers. Losing team? Boardroom. Duh. They're all being sent by bus to Atlantic City, and he'll see them there. They certainly are exploring all available forms of transportation. No hang gliders? I shouldn't complain. I sort of love the fact that you can be working for Donald Trump and still have to take a bus, to tell you the truth. Enjoy your last days among the proletariat, y'all. Soon you will be in a swirl of fame that won't subside for at least a week and a half.
