The teams gather in the boardroom. Trump asks Michael who was the MVP. Michael claims everyone was great but singles out Blago as the weak link. Trump asks if Bret was hard to handle. Michael says not as much as he expected. Trump asks about Darryl, and Michael says Darryl took direction well. Trump turns to Blago, who says he's cautiously optimistic about his team's chance of winning.
Trump swivels to Summer. Homegirl lies like a dog that she loves everyone on her team, then passive-aggressively adds that she even loves those that she has issues with. Trump zeroes in on that and asks what some of her issues are. She calls out Cyndi for her "stories" and getting the team off track. Cyndi seems blindsided by it and says Summer is throwing her "under the track." Trump asks Holly about Cyndi. Holly agrees that Cyndi's "wordiness" can sidetrack the group. Cyndi concedes that, as an emotional person, she's a little hurt by the attacks but says she'll take them into account for next time.
Trump hands Tenacity's advertorial to RockSolid and vice versa. Michael says Tenacity's looks more like an ad than an advertorial. Sharon and Holly say RockSolid's is like a newsletter. Cyndi tentatively asks, "Can I say something?" Trump notes her sudden inhibition, and Summer apologizes for hurting her feelings. Cyndi tries to make nice but defensively says she won't stick up for her anymore. She gets to her point that RockSolid's advertorial isn't visually gripping enough. It's a bit long-winded but pretty on-point, honestly. Nonetheless Michael chimes in, "I'm starting to understand Summer's point." Dick. It's pretty impressive how quickly these celebrities are falling apart. It's only the fourth task and half of them would probably leave the other half stranded in the desert if it came down to it. God help 'em in an apocalyptic situation. The farce of civility is lost, is what I'm saying.
Trump asks for Gavin's viewpoint. He agrees with Cyndi's point that an average reader won't spend the time to read this. Michael mistakes quantity for quality, arguing that if he's paying money for this ad, he should get as much information in as possible. Don jumps in to say that neither of their advertorials were perfect and that the ideal product would have been somewhere in the middle. Gavin wonders why the women didn't include a phone number on their ad. Summer admits they never thought of it.
