Trump meets with the Horsemen to find out what they thought of everyone. Trump asks Norma who impressed her the most. She says that she really liked Boyfriend Bill. She liked both his manner and his content. Charlie says that he, too, felt immediately like he could relate to Bill. He says that Bill "could hit the ground running and would require very little supervision." Allen, asked what he thought of Kwame, talks about the low-energy issue, and about Kwame's claim that energy isn't always worn on the outside. "He may be right about that," Trump comments. He goes on to say something kind of insightful (I know!) about how a lot of people who show a lot of energy on the outside wind up throwing around a lot of "wasted energy." And if anyone knows about wasted energy, it's a guy who uses a retired commercial airliner as a private jet. Tom adds that Kwame has a level of likeability that's potentially very helpful. He says that anyone who people like has an advantage, because they can get just that extra minute or two to negotiate, and that can make a huge difference.
Interestingly, we cut up to S4 at this point, where Kwame is talking about the fact that Tom really got him with a tough question about basically giving Tom a reason to put in a good word for him. Apparently, Tom asked Kwame about his losing record and how he would explain it. Nick comments that he saw Kwame, and felt that Kwame didn't look confident after the interviews were over. He thinks the same was true of Bill. Yeah, those guys are dead meat for sure. Long live Bayonne! The four of them head out of S4 to go see Trump.
Asked what he thought of Nick, Charlie says, "I like Nick a lot as a person." Uh-oh. Heh. Post-interview is the only time you really, really don't want anyone to like you "as a person." Charlie says that Nick, however, is "not a sharp kind of guy" and "clearly doesn't present himself as an intellect." That's a very interesting, and awfully cutting, remark. Allen chimes in that, like a lot of other people, he thinks Nick is a great salesman. Very in your face, very pushy. "But there's nothing behind that," he says. Tom says he doesn't see Nick running a company. "I think he's a little too slick for his own good," Tom says. Furthermore, Tom didn't feel like he knew Nick at the end of the interview.
And now, let's discuss Amy. Norma thought Amy "would get on [her] nerves after a while." HA! Oh, how the flighty have fallen. Norma goes on to say that Amy seems to enjoy being the enthusiastic, super-happy girl with the "big smile and the perfect teeth." Snerk. "Honestly, Mr. Trump," Tom says, "she irritated the hell out of me." Again, HA! Tom says that Amy seems to have a lot of drive, but he's not sure "what her motivation is." Charlie says, "She reminded me of a Stepford wife." Ow. Charlie gets even more blunt: "Within fifteen minutes, I was dead bored with talking to her." I guess now we know why she wears the short skirts. "Her words had no content. Her answers were basically meaningless." Charlie even calls her out for having "an empty personality." Zoiks. Trump, surprised at their strong reactions to some of his chosen candidates, says that he has a pretty good sense of what he's going to do next, and he dismisses the Horsemen. As they leave, they pass the candidates, who are already waiting in the lobby. Trump buzzes Robin and has her send the final four into the Boardroom.
