Alex and Bren leave the L-Pal together, having decided to just kick back for some drinks. As they enjoy a beer, Bren voices over that he showed up wanting "fame and fortune and working for Mr. Trump," and he never anticipated making a "best friend." But now he has one. And it's Alex! They're best friends! That would be so cute if I liked either of them. I also would like to take this moment to mark the place in history when Bren's tie was straight. Bren's tie, in this interview, is straight! Bren's tie, so frequently convinced that it's 10:20 (tm Miss Alli's Mom), now believes that it is 9:15 on the button. Imagine that. Back at the bar, Bren gives Alex a couple of cigar lessons, because that's neither clichéd nor homoerotic at all, and Alex calls Bren his "oasis in this vast, imbecilic land." And he's kind of an ass, but boy, do I ever have friends about whom I would say that very same thing. Not that this particular land is vast or imbecilic. Like, at all. Because it's totally not. And then he adds, "I'm surrounded by morons and their mascots." "Mascots"? Okay, he lost me there. At least the dumb people I know manage without big foam-rubber animal heads. Still, you know, it's kind of ironic that I sense that I know how Alex is generally feeling, in part because of all the time I spend watching Alex. It's the circle of life, with more contempt and fewer lions.
Alex goes on to say that Bren is awesome, because if you give him a task, it will get done. Like...marketing copy, I suppose. "It" might come out sounding like the voicemail menu at a Styrofoam-peanut factory, excitement-wise, but oh, yes -- "it" will be completed. "It's been a very nice night," Bren says. "Tomorrow, let's go balls to the wall." Man, poor Alex. I hate it when dates start out promising and then end like that.
The next morning, the Rhonaphone rings, and Tana -- in her pink zip-up that looks like she got it for selling her first $14.95 in Mary Kay products -- answers it. Rhona tells her that Trump wants them to meet him in his office "right away." Trump will be introducing them, Rhona reports, to "two important executives." We get a series of grooming shots -- Craig shaving, Bren combing back his hair, Alex blow-drying his armpits, Kendra putting on eye makeup, Bren putting on -- wait. Alex was blow-drying his armpits. Did you see that? That is hardcore, people. Kyan Douglas is like, "Dude, that is some girly-ass primping." Anyway, Tana puts on makeup, Craig shines his shoes, and then we are on our way to Trump's office. To meet with very important executives! I can hardly wait.
