Trump greets Chris and Sam, who say that ASAP had the most ambitious plan, but was a little soft on brand messaging. They also don't like that police are the butt of the joke. For the other team, they were happy about Lil Jon, although they think he might have been a little too over-the-top. They like that Backbone really sold the concept, but they had one big mistake, which was that the woman driving wasn't wearing a seat belt, which makes the commercial basically unusable for them. Trump agrees it's a big mistake. So, Trump asks, who's the winner? But you know they won't let us hear the answer yet.
Boardroom time, with about a half-hour to go in this marathon. Trump asks Rich how he did. Rich says his team did very well, and absolutely nailed the criteria they were going to be judged on. Lil Jon agrees. Trump asks who was the star of the team, and Lil Jon says both of them were. He says Rich did the pitch, and he did the commercial. Trump asks Rich how Lil Jon did, and Rich say she was incredible and invaluable, picking up the slack when Rich was sick and struggling. Trump asks, "So a hip-hop guy and a country guy get along?" Lil Jon says very well, and Rich says he wants to comment on one thing. He says that the stereotypical way he's looked at with a cowboy hat is similar to how Lil Jon's stereotyped. He says he appreciates that this show was able to bring them, and maybe their fan bases, together.
Trump moves on to tell Meat Loaf how great he looks -- rested, relaxed. Then he adds that he's not gay. "I think gayness is wonderful, frankly, but I'm not a gay man." Oh, dear Lord. "Gayness"? Trump asks Meat Loaf how he got so much better looking. Meat Loaf says that Celebrity Apprentice is a terrific exercise and weight-loss program. Trump asks what Meat Loaf did for the task, and he says he set up the vignettes. Trump wonders why Marlee didn't do that, so she jumps in and says she decided Star would do brand messaging and Meat Loaf would do creative. Trump asks if Meat Loaf is more creative than Star, and Marlee says Star's great in front of the camera, but behind it there's a different role for her. Trump shows their commercial. And we get to basically watch it for a third time. Because they had THREE HOURS to fill.
Trump asks Rich what he thought, and Rich points out they missed the main point, which is that OnStar is now available at your local electronics retailer. He says the objective of this task was to let people know they can buy it. Marlee says she heard it at the end of the commercial, but Rich says he would have put it in both places. Now it's time to watch the men's video. Again. The soccer mom's still not wearing a seat belt. Trump asks Meat Loaf what he thinks of their video. He likes it a lot. Marlee says it's for a different audience. She says she respects their work. He asks if she likes it more than theirs. She doesn't feel like it's as personal. They all enjoyed it, but not more than theirs. Trump says he thinks Rich likes his own video better, but everyone on ASAP sort of sees it as a tie.
