Trump says to George and Carolyn, "This is a tough decision," and then he asks Robin to send the fellas in. She does. They sit at the Boardroom table. Trump tells them again that they're both great and should be proud. "But only one of you is going to run one of my companies," he says. He cites the fact that their teams described them as having very different ways of operating. He asks Bill which he thinks is easier -- the concert, or the tournament. Bill says as frankly as he can that he thinks the concert is easier. Kwame is asked the same question, and he and Bill both laugh as he says that the golf tournament would be easier. Trump asks about intensity and drive. He tells Kwame that the team sometimes wondered if he had the intensity and drive that he needed to have. Kwame insists that he does. Not only does he say that he remains "calm, cool, and collected," but he says he doesn't "get ruffled easily." That's two precise vocabulary swipes from the discussion about Bill. Very interesting. It's like Kwame has a cheat sheet. "You know what they say," Kwame offers. "Still waters run deep." Kwame is asked whether anyone gave him any trouble on his team. He says yes. He says that Assorama was "difficult to manage." Trump says to Kwame by way of a diagnosis of the problem, "Didn't she want to be you?" Kwame agrees. They both believe that Assorama was all about getting the spotlight for herself. Trump says that he was pretty surprised that Kwame picked Assorama when he did. "You did pick her," Carolyn repeats. Kwame says that when he picked her, he felt that she was "the next most qualified person." Meaning he saw Assorama as more qualified than Nick or Heidi. Meaning, by the way, that the order in which they chose made no difference, because if he thinks there are two people less qualified than Assorama, then he would have picked her anyway. Trump asks whether picking Assorama was a mistake, and as Bill nods vigorously (heh), Kwame hedges with, "In some ways yes, and in some ways no." I'd be fascinated to hear about the ways in which picking Assorama really worked out great for Kwame. ["He didn't die?" -- Sars] At any rate, Carolyn says that picking Assorama was a very risky move at this late juncture in the game.
