Then he asks Ivanka how La Toya did. She says La Toya was enthused and energetic to be back. He asks if she was impressed with the Jo(h)ns, and Ivanka says she always is. Trump agrees they're impressive, and Meat Loaf chimes in, in agreement. Trump teases Lil Jon they're going to ruin his reputation, then tells Cramer that Lil Jon's teeth are worth "a freaking fortune." John Rich then tells Meat Loaf that, as his friend, he promises he'll match whatever Meat Loaf raised, personally, if Meat Loaf loses so that his charity won't lose any of that money. That's how much he thinks of Meat Loaf, who -- of course -- starts crying as he and Rich grab hands across the table. I never thought I'd feel this way in my life, but how can a person not like a guy like John Rich? That is a sweet, sweet gesture, and not a small one either. He has to know he might be paying close to what his team made if Meat Loaf's team lost, which he just said is a "competitive number." So it's certainly not nothing. Ivanka looks very touched, too, as does everyone else. Except Jim Cramer, who doesn't seem to have any facial expressions other than crazed and dazed. Meat Loaf thanks Trump for introducing him to people like John Rich and these ladies. Trump says the world is gonna love Meat Loaf. Apparently we hated him before.
Time to find out who won the game. Meat Loaf's team raised $102,080. La Toya's team made $82,500. Meat Loaf bursts into tears, which Trump loves so much, apparently, he calls it "fantastic" twice. Meat Loaf thanks Trump, then apologizes to La Toya, who says it's okay. Trump says he doesn't root and is impersonal, but he was sort of pulling for Meat Loaf here, because of how much his heart was into it. He sends them back to the suite to watch the firing on television. So, Backbone's going to lose two people in one task, which is a little bit unfair. Basically, they didn't really get anyone back for losing Jose, like Trump said last week when he let La Toya come back.
Back in the suite, Meat Loaf calls his wife and cries to her about winning $190,000. He says this -- along with having his children -- was one of the three best moments in his life. Back in the boardroom, Trump says there are no losers, but what happened here? La Toya says she thinks people were just tapped out, and Trump agrees that Rich couldn't be expected to get many donors after raising $600,000 in one evening. Rich agrees, but points out he brought in more money than anyone else on the team. Trump asks about Lil Jon, and La Toya says he did well, too. So Trump asks who he should fire. She says, honestly, she can't say anything bad about either of these guys, who were wonderful and followed every instruction. Trump asks who was better? She says they were both equal and she can't choose. Trump asks Lil Jon who he would fire, and he says it has to fall on the project manager or the person who raised the least money. Trump tells La Toya he let her come back on and he knows she wants to stay. He blathers on about how great and smart and how much of a champion she is. He says she set one more record, though, in that she'll be fired twice. He fires her again. On the way out, the Jo(h)ns hug La Toya and tell her how great it was to work with her. She interviews after that being on the show was one of the best experiences and she loved it. She says she looks at it as only one firing because the other one didn't count. Then she dresses like Michael and leaves as the show plays vaguely Michael Jackson music.
