The Boardroom door opens, and Troy is the first through the door. Somewhere, I envision Sars yelling, "TROOOOY!" ["That's more or less what happened." -- Sars] Heidi, Katrina, Nick, Amy, and Assorama follow. Heidi seems particularly fixated on touching Bill and Kwame a lot, with the arm-rubbing and the shoulder-clasping. "See how they're kissing your ass already?" Trump observes. Snerk. George and Carolyn laugh. Trump tells the guys that they'll be picking who they want on their team. Bill will get the first pick, and who does he pick? Amy, of course. Could my eyes roll any more? Will these guys ever stop throwing hunks of buffalo meat into the gaping maw of her enormous ego? Jesus. Kwame, predictably, picks his "main man in combat, Troy McClain." Awww. I was so happy to see them together again, it was a little bit wrong. Bill's next pick is Katrina. Really? Before Nick? Or Heidi? Does Bill not remember how horrible Katrina has been to him on certain occasions? And also...well, Sars will share her now-famous sentiment regarding Katrina with you right about here. ["HATE!" -- Sars] Kwame picks Assorama, which is completely preposterous, but which makes me laugh, because...take that, Heidi. There's also an interesting theory floating around on the forums that Kwame knew he was stuck with her because he had the last pick, and it would be better not to pick her last, since she's such a horribly bad sport and probably carrying a grudge anyway. It's an interesting theory. I'd like to think that was why he picked her when he did. At any rate, left with Nick and Heidi, Bill picks Nick. Kwame is stuck with Heidi. She smiles tightly. Looks good on you, loser.
Trump tells the staff that now, they are the employees. They'll be taken to their respective destinations separately, while Bill and Kwame ride in style in private limos. Oooh, nice. Trump hands out instructions to the guys, and sends everyone on their way. As they all leave the building, Kwame interviews that interestingly, when they had the opportunity to choose their teams, they both chose exactly the same teams they had before -- and indeed, this is the same configuration that was in play during the art task, which Kwame PM'd and lost by a factor of about fifteen, so...it's like "don't mess with success," only in Kwame's case, the opposite of that. Kwame comments on how odd it was to have the rest of his team travel by SUV while he traveled by Town Car. He apparently enjoyed it, though, as he explains how he spent the drive figuring out how to "deploy" the members of his team so that they could "hit the ground running" once they got to Atlantic City. That fascinates me. I've always wanted a job where I could be "deployed" without encountering any physical danger. You don't really "deploy" writers, though. Except in the case of recapping American Idol. (Rimshot!) Kwame talks to his people on the Space Communicator, and tells them what their assignments will be. He tells Assorama she's going to be on logistics, because he thinks they'll be good at that. "Oh, completely," she says. "We've got to make sure that you shine." Kwame tells her he appreciates it, and he thinks they'll do the task as a team. He repeats in his interview that micromanagement is not his style -- he gives the plan, and then he follows up and makes sure people are executing it.
