Later, as the women discuss the designers, Maria brings up Darren, and Elizabeth raises the entirely fair point that she thinks they have to be careful about repeating the last task, where they picked the less expensive product and then tried to get the price up. Maria is hearing none of it. "Darren is the right choice," she says. "I just want to say it one last time, and it's over. We're done." Wow. She didn't like dictatorial leadership from Baldford or Pamela. How odd that she would immediately think that it was all right for her. It's just crazy how that works, isn't it? Ivana smirks. Elizabeth next brings up the point that they really need to be aiming at the buyers, and not necessarily at "the masses." Again, Elizabeth is right, and again, Maria acts like she's patiently tolerating her. In fact, Maria interviews that Elizabeth was sent off with Jen M. to talk to the buyers, just to get her out of the way. Maria's lack of understanding of the importance of those meetings is unsurprising, but kind of hilariously telling. She really is a complete idiot. It may not hurt her this week, but this stuff is all backing up. Nobody in this game, ever, has been as lucky as Maria -- the week she completely booted the toothpaste task single-handedly, it turned out to be Gang Up On Stacie week; the week she screwed up as the presenter, it was Trump Hoses Pamela week...eventually, she's actually going to be held responsible for her behavior, and once that happens? Yeah. She won't be around a lot longer.
