Don Jr. and Ivanka will assist Trump in judging. Dayana and Arsenio step up as project managers, though Arsenio is good-natured about Aubrey's inevitable mission creep.
Aubrey wants the jingle to have a cheerleader vibe, but Arsenio shoots the idea down. She then suggests some kind of tap-dancing routine, which Arsenio shoots it down due to the Bojangles clause. Aubrey doesn't get that at all and just assumed Arsenio is being a baby. "Arsenio is the biggest girl on this show," she says, followed by accusing him of wearing cheerleader outfits at home or something. She's kind of just spraying vileness in all directions at this point. So both Aubrey and Arsenio are big babies and clam up in the van on the way to the workspace, and Teresa, of all people, has to be the mature one. TERESA!
At the workspace, Arsenio and Aubrey jockey for position over everything, with Arsenio generally opting to let Aubrey have her way to keep her happy, while Aubrey rushes to find the nearest camera at all times so she can complain about how useless Arsenio is. The Good Sam exec comes by and, among other things, tells them their audience is "Your mother, your grandmother, your child." We also meet the "Good Sam" mascot, who is a bobblehead with a scary Aubrey smile. Speaking of whom, Aubrey goads Good Sam exec into buying into her "cheerleader" idea, and his apparent enthusiasm for it gets Arsenio onboard. She's far more concerned with nailing down a style for the jingle rather than the actual songwriting. "I can write something with literally no effort," she says, which I know comes as a real shock to Danity Kane fans everywhere. They also decide to let Arsenio lay down a rap in the middle of the song.
Arsenio assigns Teresa and Aubrey to signage while he prepares his drum solo (yes, he's also getting a drum solo), but when the singers arrive, Aubrey sneaks off into the vocal booth to join the backup singers. Arsenio swallows it with a grimace. Don Jr. visits and is treated to a dry run of the song, followed by, per usual, the moment when Aubrey pulls him aside and enthusiastically runs down her teammates, especially Arsenio. Don's like "I've been around a LOT of disgusting behavior in my years doing this show, but Aubrey is easily the grossest."
Later, Aubrey and Teresa call Arsenio from the van en route to a rehearsal or something, basically so Aubrey can set Arsenio up to look bad, and they ask for direction for the performance. He's vague, which gives Aubrey the opportunity to be racially sketchy ("Homeboy is shifty! Grow some balls, bro!"). Meanwhile, Arsenio looks like a chump as he interviews that Aubrey's really come around on this team-player thing. At the rehearsal, Aubrey totally takes over and revamps Arsenio's concept. She takes away his drum solo at the beginning of the song and moves it to a different point. With the drum solo at a different point, Arsenio no longer feels comfortable with it, because it's not what he rehearsed. Aubrey freaks out about Arsenio being a baby and throwing a tantrum; she's really just astronomically the worst.
