Octane's turn. Wade tells his team not to worry or stress about this, just to go have fun. David's opening is actually decent, then he passes it to Gene, who reads poorly from his computer. He mispronounces difficult words such as "leather," "color," "breathable," "sling-back," and about a dozen more. Then he mixes up the names of a shoe and a model. The next model comes out, and he actually whispers, "Who's this?" David realizes it's going bad, so exits the stage (which can't look good on him in the boardroom, can it? It seems like he should have taken over the dramatic reading). Backstage, the men stress out. Wade shakes his head and actually says, "Unless the women sent naked men out on stage or did something completely stupid, we've absolutely blown this task." Heh. Well, I think they've blown it even though the women sent naked men out on stage. In fact, the women would have had to enact the Spanish tickler on stage to lose this one.
Boardroom. Trump comes in. Dare I hope that he fires everyone? I mean, really ... hasn't he figured out this far in that none of these people should work for him? They all suck. Trump asks Stephanie why Brandy was her emcee, and Stephanie says she represents the definition of Rockport: savvy, sexy, attractive, contemporary. Stephanie thinks Brandy did a fabulous job, and Kelly agrees. Trump asks her if she's emceed before. She has not. Trump thinks she was fantastic. Of course. This is Trump, and she's a woman.
Catherine wonders about the women's choice of the scabby-legged guy to wear shorts. Stephanie deflects instantly: "Kelly and Poppy cast the models." Kelly doesn't know which model, and Trump thinks that's ridiculous. Liza says she did see it and asked Kelly about it, but didn't follow up by mentioning the scabs. Catherine says a number of people in the front row commented on it. Juan asks whose idea it was to have the men come out in their underwear, which was bold but risky. Stephanie tries to say they were really black shorts, but Trump disagrees. Stephanie says they wanted to show off the shoes, and Trump cuts right to it: They blew away the men and he doesn't want to waste more of their time. They're going back to the suite and watching the carnage. Stephanie gets to meet Michael Rupp from Rockport. The women are all hugs and happiness on their way out, as Trump tells the men they were terrible and someone will be fired.
