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.
Trump says it wasn't even close, and then asks Wade what that mess was all about. Wade agrees it was a mess, and says he owes Trump an apology. He says he knew it was coming and was embarrassed by it. Trump asks why Wade picks Gene, who's obviously never done this before. Wade says that Gene told him he had public-speaking experience, and he believed him. Trump keeps ridiculing Wade for Gene mispronouncing every word and not making sense. Then he compares him to Brandy. Wade can't disagree, but he really should start throwing Gene under the bus. Trump says he'll use Brandy if he needs a speaker. Wade says he thought Gene would do well, because he has a good voice and carries himself well. Trump agrees, then finally turns to Gene, asking him first why he'd bring in the big computer instead of, oh, I don't know, paper? Trump goes on and on about how bad Gene was at reading and talking, and how he didn't talk about how beautiful the shoes were even though he went into minute details about everything else. Gene says this wasn't the plan, and totally agrees. Trump says that David wasn't great, but he did okay compared to Gene.
Trump asks Gene if Wade was a terrible project manager, and Gene says he did great. Trump's like, "Yeah, right. He picked two guys who were terrible." He says Wade should have chosen Steuart and Anand, who are smoother guys and would have made a nice presentation. Trump says he never would have chosen David, and Gene couldn't have been worse. He asks why Wade didn't pick Steuart and Anand. Wade says they work well together and are stylish, so he had confidence they'd choose a good wardrobe. Wade says that Gene has a nice voice, as you can hear in the boardroom. Trump, pretty angry at this point, says he doesn't know if Gene has a nice voice, but he couldn't fucking read! He mocks Gene's reading skills some more, and thinks Wade should have tested them. Trump says this is the worst job he's ever seen as an emcee.
