Trump particularly agrees that Teresa hasn't shown her full potential. Debbie says she hesitates, and Ivanka notes how Teresa's behavior on this show doesn't jive with her brash persona from Real Housewives. Teresa disagrees with these assessments but refuses to defend herself until she is forced to. Adam grows weary of her diffidence and says, "Let me cut to the chase, just flip the boardroom table over so we can move on here, please. Can't you see where this is heading?" Teresa gets a little more fired up at this point, insisting her participation has been critical in driving forward most of the first few tasks. Debbie tells her everyone's participation has been critical. Sit down, table-flipper.
Trump moves to Tia, who had no delusions about Debbie's feelings toward her. She thinks Debbie set it up to marginalize her and Teresa and didn't entertain her ideas because she was busy favoring the other girls. Debbie gives a clear, calm justification why she didn't incorporate Tia's idea. Trump asks Tia how she felt Debbie was as a PM. Tia calls Debbie "off-putting," "dismissive," "condescending." Teresa agrees. Trump suspects Debbie doesn't respect her teammates. Debbie stifles a chuckle and shrugs her shoulders, like, "May I don't... and maybe I don't!"
Time for the executive feedback. Don Jr. says they liked Forte's "THOUGHTFUL" banner, Lisa's humor and Aubrey's passion. They didn't think the branding was strong enough, nor Tia's role and they didn't fully grasp the "reflection" theme. That's without mentioning Aubrey's name screw-up. Trump deems that a fireable offense. Lisa says Aubrey got it right three times. Yeah, 60 percent is still a failing rate. And probably Aubrey's high school GPA. Arsenio kicks in, "We could never say 'Donald Tramp!'" That should totally be a contestant on next season of RuPaul's Drag Race. Or maybe a roller derby alter ego. Debbie insists the theme was spelled out pretty clearly, but even Teresa doesn't seem to get the concept, which troubles Don Jr.
On to the men, Adam claims he's positively tumescent. (That makes two inappropriate erection references tonight -- three if you count Adam's virginity story. Thanks, pervs.) Trump is all, "Huh?" Adam snarks, "It's a big word, look it up when you get home." I'm surprised he didn't get fired right then. I'm sure there are plenty of words stashed away in Trump's blonde bouffant. He brushes off Adam's sass and turns to Ivanka. The execs commended Adam's stage presence, his command of the car specs, and the overall Q&A portion. They didn't care for Michael's reserved personality. He seems to start criticizing Adam for cutting him off when what does Adam do? Cut him off! "The guy's not Al Jolson, he's a race car driver!" Well there you go. Ivanka adds that Buick's voice and the other teammates (besides Penn in the trunk) got lost in Adam's shtick. The lack of community on the team showed in the presentation, she concludes. Trump asks for any closing thoughts from the celeb-pprenti. Penn and Arsenio both think Adam could very well become Buick's spokesperson. Trump says that's unlikely because the men lost. Adam is speechless, and Debbie is brought to tears that she can give the $50,000 prize to Children's International.
